Review: Mádara natural haircare shampoo&conditioner

Image

 

So these two are the shampoo and conditioner that I have been using since christmas. It’s the Nourish and Repair shampoo and conditioner. My hair is thin and dry and I have a lot of split ends, so that’s why I chose Nourish and Repair. I wash my hair twice a week, and I like to put coconut or argan oil in my hair as a hair mask the night before I shower . The products are vegan, cruelty free, Eco Cert certified, gluten free and nut free. 99% of the ingridients are natural. They don’t contain any silicones, parabens, mineral oil or other synthetic ingredients. 

Mádara Nourish and Repair Shampoo 

Pros: The shampoo really cleans my hair and it lathers really well. It has a nice consistency and it’s easy to apply. 

Cons: I wish the ingredients were even more natural. It does contain Sodium coco-sulfate and it can make my hair a little bit dry. It’s also a little bit expensive. 

Mádara Noursih and Repair Conditioner

Pros: It has a really nice creamy consistency and it makes my hair smooth, soft and easy to comb. It’s easy to apply and it doesn’t weigh my hair down. It is the best natural conditioner I have used so far. 

Cons: Same as the Shampoo, I wish the ingredients were more natural and maybe give my hair a little bit more moisture. 

 

All in all; It is a good shampoo and conditioner but I wish they were more natural and could do something about my dry hair. If you are new to the green beauty products I really recommend these products! They are easy to work with and the consistency is like non-natural products. And they might work better for those who doesn’t have dry hair. My hair can be impossible sometimes. I will probably not purchase them again, just because I’m looking for products that are more natural and with more moisture. If you think this is natural enough for you, then go ahead and try these! I’m sure you’ll like them. 🙂

Liebstar Award

Hey there! For a couple of days ago I got a comment from Alex, http://believeinyou24.wordpress.com/ telling me that she nominated me for a Liebster Award. Thank you so much for the nomination! I’m happy that I got nominated 🙂 This is a tag for new bloggers or for bloggers with less than 200 followers. I’m going to answer some questions, post 11 facts about me and then ask 11 questions.. This is my first tag ever so let’s get started!

 

1. What/Who inspired you to start blogging?

I’ve had two blogs before this one, where I wrote about my life. It felt like it wasn’t enough, I hadn’t any great pics to post of my outfit or any stories I could share. I liked to blog, but didn’t have a subject. When I got into green beauty I immediately began to think about starting a blog, I wanted to share my experience and just get into the green community because I feel like we can all help each other and everybody is so kind and helpful here. 

2. If you could use only one makeup product for the rest of your life, what would you use (blush, eyeliner, foundation, etc.)?

Mascara! My eyelashes are not so black and thick as I would want them to be. I feel like I can live without a foundation, because my skin is getting clearer now when I use natural skin care. I would have answered foundation two years ago, because I had a lot of acne and I used foundation pretty much everyday. Now I only need mascara to darken my eyelashes. (and if this is not cheating, I could use it as an eyeliner by dipping an eyeliner brush in the mascara :D)

3. What is your favorite book from childhood? 

 When I was 7 I loved to read the Sweet Valley High novels! They were my favourite books and I think I’ve read almost everyone of them. (I used to hope that I had a secret twin that looked just like me and we would somehow have been seperated when we were young) You can say that I was kind of obsessed. 

4. Have you watched any of the Oscar movie winners and/or nominees from this past year and what is your verdict? If not, what Oscar movie and/or nominee movies from this past year do you want to see?

Yes I think I have. I’ve watched Django Unchained, Skyfall and Les misérables. I liked Django Unchained and Skyfall. I haven’t watched the whole Les misérables. I liked the actors but I think I wasn’t used to the singing in Les Misérables. Maybe I will like it more if I watch it again. I liked Skyfall because of all the action and the plot. I’ve always been a fan of James Bond moives. The movie Django Unchained was one of my favorites, because of the heartbreaking plot, the great actors and the movie in general.  

5.  What word makes it the most into your personal vocab?  

Well this has to be a swedish word, since I speak swedish everyday. I would have to say Alltså or typ. I use it to much and my teacher would always make fun of me (not in a bad way). Typ means kind of but also so much more. (when I use it) and alltså means so. It’s hard to explain because it means so many things. 

6. What are your top five favorite clothing stores to shop at? 

There aren’t many stores where I live, and some of you have probably never heard of some of these clothing stores. I like Zara, Mango, Ginatricot, Bikbok and H&M. I try to stay away from H&M because of their nasty background. It just doesn’t feel right to buy their clothes when I know that some of are made in terrible conditions. 

7. What is your most loved health food and green beauty product?

It’s hard to pic one when it comes to food. I love fruit and I eat soo much fruit everyday (compared to the rest of my family, but probably not compared to a fruitarian) I like pomegranate, pineapple, oranges, water melon, cantaloupe.. and the list goes on! 

When it comes to green beauty product I’ll have to say… oils. Not surprised? You can use oils to so many things! For instance: as a makeup remover, a moisturizer, a sunscreen or a hair mask. My favorite oils are coconut oil, argan oil and avocado oil. 

8. The Voice or American Idol?

Never seen any of them so I can’t answer this question. :/

9. Where do you want your next vacation spot to be?

There are so many places I want to visit; the maldives, dubai, South Asia, Japan, Australia, Italy… But I would really love some sunshine right now so I woud probably choose the maldives. It looks so nice there, with the bangalows, the turquoise water and the white sand. 

10. When was your first concert?

2011. I went to an Enrique Iglesias consert with my friend. 

11. What accent can do you the best besides your own?

A swedish accent here in Finland called Högsvenska. 🙂

 

11 Facts about me:

1. I speak swedish, but my dialect is so difficult so other people from Sweden don’t understand me at all. They think that I speak norwegian.

2. I played soccer for 10 years, but I quit two years ago.

3. I’m a parfume addict. 

4. I am also addicted to chocolate….

5. …. and tv shows.

7. I live in Finland.

8. I’ve had two surgeries. One heart surgery and one to remove my tonsills. 

9. I’m really terrified of bears. When I was in northern Finland, a place that was known for having a lot of bears,  I couldn’t even go outside alone. Still, I like adrenalin kicks so I went in the woods with my brother and my cousin on a quad bike and just drove around. Scariest thing I’ve ever done.

10. My biggest dream is to live abroad.

11.  I am very spontaneous and I love to try new things.

Welcome!

Hello and welcome to my new blog! I hope you will enjoy your time here and I will do my best to make it a great experience.

In this blog I will write about natural and organic makeup, skincare, hair care, food, or In fact everything that has to do with natural beauty. I’m very passionate about natural and organic things, and I care for both my body and the environment. I try to stay away from toxins, mineral oils, silicones and sulfates. I’m not fully educated on this subject but I’m learning more everyday and I don’t think you can ever know too much when it comes to this subject! I will also do some reviews on products and maybe some makeup looks!

Why do I want to blog?

There is so many different bloggers that already blogs about makeup, but not many of them use natural and organic makeup! In the beginning of my new lifestyle I was so confused and didn’t know so much about natural makeup brands or what to avoid in drugstore makeup. There were a few bloggers who wrote about makeup and they helped me so much! Their reviews and knowledge were so helpful and they inspired me to do the same. I think that the green community is so unique and if we all come together we can make a difference to a better and healthier world. I want to share my experience to others and help beginners who want to try out a more natural lifestyle!

Something about me:

My name is Sophie and I’m a 17 year old girl from Österbotten, Finland. My middle name is actually Alice so that’s how I came up with the blogname Alicesvoice. (sophiesvoice was already taken haha!) Even though I live in Finland my native language is swedish, not finnish. English is obviously not my native language but I still wanted to write in english because I think I will reach out to more people that way. So please excuse me for future spelling mistakes!

Exercising and taking care of my body has always been an passion for me. I love travelling and one of my biggest dream is to travel around the world, so don’t be surprised if I post pics of me travelling!

If you have any questions or just want to write to me you can email me! My email is sophie.doktar@hotmail.com

Thank you for reading!

Sophie.
