Natural World Argan Oil Haircare Range

If you follow me on Snapchat, you might have seen that I recently took a trip to the hairdresser's "just to get my roots done", and ended up with hair blonde enough to give Daenerys Targaryen a run for her money. Well, perhaps not quite that blonde, but there was a lot of bleach involved. A lot. I've actually got used to the colour now. Turns out my hairdresser was right - I'd left it too long between appointments (mostly because I hate spending hours getting my colour done - anyone else?) and the underneath sections were starting to look pretty tarnished. It's definitely more even now, but boy did it feel dry and damaged once it was done!

So if ever there was a good time to put a new haircare range through its paces, it was in the wake of this appointment. I was very interested when I was offered the chance to try this Argan Oil range from Natural World - a London based haircare brand that creates ranges from natural ingredients from around the globe. Argan oil is widely known to be very moisturizing, and that was definitely what I needed at this point! The range is also free from a lot of nasties such as parabens, phosphates and phthalates, is gluten free and contains 95% natural ingredients including certified organic argan oil.

I was sent a shampoo and conditioner to try, along with a hair mask and two different sizes of treatment oil. Looking the products up online, I was pretty impressed with the generous sizes compared to the price. For example, I received 500 ml bottles of shampoo and conditioner, which retail for £4.99 each. That's a lot of bang for your buck. The packaging isn't the most luxurious out there but the bright blue colour is fairly appealing and for the most part it's practical enough, although I have to say I hate the packaging of the smaller treatment oil. It's a narrow tube with a screw top and just pours out into your hand, so it's impossible to avoid wastage and mess. The larger treatment oil comes with a press down lid allowing you to dispense a controlled amount of product, which is much better.

All the products feel lovely to use, rich without being heavy, and with a beautiful fragrance. As well as argan oil, the range is also infused with a blend of cedarwood, rosemary, lemongrass and ylang ylang, and this is certainly evident in the scent - especially the orange. As most people know by now, argan oil - particularly nourishing in Vitamin E and anti-oxidants - is a popular choice when it comes to moisturising ingredients in haircare, and the blend of essential oils contained within this range is designed to gently cleanse hair whilst adding moisture and shine.

For my first hair wash post Daenerys-gate, I decided to use the shampoo and the hair mask, for an extra hit of much-needed nourishment. As directed, I left the hair mask on for twenty minutes, wrapped in a towel. When I came to rinse it out, my hair felt soft and manageable. I wouldn't go so far as to say it felt like silk, but to be fair, I don't think there's a product in the world that could make that happen, given how much bleach it's been subjected to.

Hair Mask

For hair washes after that, I've been using the shampoo and regular conditioner, switching the latter up for the hair mask once a week or so, and I'm pleased to report that my hair remains soft and relatively easy to comb through before styling, which is impressive considering the aforementioned bleach. It also seems to work very well at not weighing down my fine hair or causing it to become greasy, which is great as it means I can leave it a few days between washes - a desirable thing if you want to avoid subjecting your hair to too much heat styling, as I do.

Left - Shampoo, Right - Conditioner

As for shine, this has always been an elusive quality as far as my hair is concerned, and even more so since I became a bottle blonde. I don't find that the shampoo, conditioner and hair mask add shine to my hair, although someone with a different/less abused hair type might well find differently. I do however think that the treatment oil, when used on dry hair, adds a little. I really like the treatment oil. You can use it on both wet and dry hair, and it's so light that even if you make a mistake and end up being a bit too heavy handed with it, you can still work with it. Combined with the other products, it definitely makes my hair feel softer and smoother. Can you see the added shine in the "after" picture below? I'll admit, it's minuscule, but I do think there's something of a difference!

All in all I think this is a lovely range - effective, natural, pleasant to use and great value for money. If you're interested in trying any of the products, you can pick them up at ridiculously low prices here.

What haircare products are you using at the moment? Any recommendations?

  1. seems like a great product!

  2. I do not have a specific hair care product and I only use a shampoo, conditioner, and a hairmask every week. All which comes from a supermarket. Lol
    This looks very promising tho! I heard so many good words about argan oil.

    1. Argan oil is brilliant if your hair is lacking moisture. x

  3. This range sounds lovely! You can't go wrong with Moroccan oil x

  4. Great review! The lack of shine of my hair is also something I really struggle with. I'm also blond and, unfortunately, blond hair always looks a little bit dull, yet I do find a difference between the before and after picture!


    1. The struggle is real! Glad you can see a slight difference though! x

  5. Wow, sounds amazing!

    Happy Tuesday & Lots of Love,

  6. These products sounds fantastic! I love organ oil, I have a few after shower sprays that make such a big difference!

  8. I love the Natural World products! I tried the Keratin treatment oil and it was amazing and now I am using the argan oil treatment and it is so good!

  9. They look so good!

  10. Love that they're natural and love to use argan oil for my hair, so might have to give this a try!! They sounded so lovely! Xx


  11. I have been in the market for a new hair mask.. Or day I say I've never had one? Looks like it's high-time. However my hair is VERY color treated.. I wonder if this product would still make sense? Your hair looks natural/highlighted?

    1. Hi Kelly, my hair is highlighted using bleach, which is the only thing I can use as I'm allergic to dyes and toners. It's a different chemical process, but I believe both (bleaching and dyeing) are drying and damaging to the hair. In which case, this range would probably be great for you! x

  12. Brilliant value for money! I tried the coconut products from this range but it didn't work well for my hair - these would probably suit my hair better xx


    1. Hope you get on with these if you do try them! They really are good value. x

  13. I don't rely on my hair care to get my bleached hair back in shape, but I use a deep conditioning oil mask once a month.

  14. These products sound lovely! I'm currently using some ogx products :) xx

  15. I'm completely on board with adoring the benefits of using argan oil! I use a shampoo, conditioner and after-wash serum all infused with argan oil and can really tell the different when I skip (eg. when travelling). Great review, the Hair Mask has caught my eye :)

  16. Ahh, Argan Oil is such a must have, I can't believe I still haven't really tried the range too much! Natural World looks and sounds so promising, and I love how it's got so many benefits, love that it's gluten free and rid of those nasties! The hair mask sounds really nourishing it's great it all comes at such good value for money too. Love your Snapchats, it's always fab hearing your thoughts on beauty products! <3
