Superfood for your hair

The three bugbears I have with my hair is that it is dull, dry and lacks volume. So in a bid to solve these problems, I'm always looking for the next product that promises to make my hair soft, shiny or volumous. Green People seem to have created a product trio* that manages to do all three really rather well.

It's unsurprising really, when you look at the ingredient list that's high in antioxidants and essential amino acids derived from superfoods quinoa, artichoke and avocado. We all know that eating these superfoods is good for your body, but it turns out that they also make pretty heroic haircare too.

The Quinoa and Artichoke Shampoo and Conditioner transforms my lacklustre and lifeless locks into swishy, shiny hair. The silky softness is down to the deeply nourishing and protein packed quinoa, which also coats every strand of hair to add body and bounce, wheras it's the artichoke to thank for the shine and de-frizzing. Artichoke's deeply cleansing properties effectively remove dirt and deposits that cause a dull appearance on the hair, and also works by smoothing down any rough cuticles that cause frizz. It's antioxidants also protect against UV - no wonder it's a superfood.

The shampoo and conditioner also smell good enough to eat. As they're both 100% natural, you probably could, but I wouldn't recommend it.

I almost didn't try the Styling Gel - in my mind a hair 'gel' makes me think of that sticky/crispy/wet look hair that the boys at school thought was cool back in the mid-noughties. But as the label promised "weightless volume, shine and bounce" and suggested it was more of a leave in conditioner, I gave it a go - and I'm glad I did. I definitely wouldn't call it a styling gel, but more of a shine serum that you apply into wet hair to add volume and extra shine; it makes the hair super soft and managable.

I also love the sweet illustration on the bottles, I think it adds a lot more appeal to the otherwise quite clinical packaging of most Green People products. 



  1. I've heard quite a bit about this specific range and the feedback has been so good! Might have to hunt it down when I next run out of hair stuff
