It will probably come as no surprise if I tell you that I’m becoming more and more interested hair products that are natural and/or made by a small business (see here or here). When I was at the BBMU conference back in November 2018, I got a chance to chat with Nelipot representatives. They showcased their newest products – one of them can be used as a lubricant but I’ll be a tease and keep you waiting for its review 🙂 – and I was lucky enough to receive a sample of their Diven Shampoo.
At the time of writing this post (19 February 2019), the newest Nelipot offering is available only on the Slovenian market. However, Natalija from their social media team told me that this shampoo would become available on the Croatian and international websites on 8 March 2019. Soon!
For now, Nelipot Diven Shampoo is available in a 50 ml sample size. This should be enough for 6 to 10 washes, depending on how much shampoo you use for each wash.
Nelipot Diven Shampoo – Ingredients
Ingredients: Aqua, Sodium Cocoamphoacetate, Lauryl Glucoside, Glycerin, Citric Acid, Sodium Cocoyl Glutamate, Sodium Lauryl Glucose Carboxylate, Hydrolyzed Wheat Protein, Sodium Benzoate, Rosmarinus Officinalis Leaf Oil, Litsea Cubeba Fruit Oil, Limonene, Linalool, Citral.
The Diven Shampoo is certified natural and organic by Ecogea.org, having at least 97.5% of natural ingredients. It contains hydrolised wheat protein, which is supposed to hydrate and protect the hair. Sodium cocoamphoacetate, lauryl glucoside, sodium cocoyl glutamate, and sodium lauryl glucose carboxylate work to (also) cleanse your hair. The rosemary essential oil provides some antimicrobial action, and, together with the Litsea cubeba fruit oil, a bright, herbal frgrance.
Nelipot Diven Shampoo – User Experience
This shampoo is pleasant to use. It’s rather liquid but still viscous. With it you don’t run the risk of spilling everything in one go. You do need to be careful because the bottle opening is quite big. The fornula itself lathers really well and rinses off, too. I usually shampoo my hair twice (I use oil as a pre-shampoo treatment) and by the second shampooing, I feel my hair starts tangling. I solve this problem by adding some more conditioner afterwards. The Diven Shampoo cleanses well but it doesn’t prolong the time between two washes.
This shampoo is suitable for anyone with normal hair who looks for a gentle, natural formula. Due to the amount of tangling I get, I can’t call it ideal but it’s pleasant enough to use every now and then. The sample size costs €3.99 in Slovenia, so the investment isn’t huge if you just want to try the shampoo out.
