Timotei Pure Haircare - Review

For a few weeks now my scalp has been rather itchy and generally irritated,
this always seems to happen whenever I colour my hair so I do try and hold of colouring my
hair or applying any harsh chemicals for as long as possible.
However when you have more roots than normal hair and an accidental ombre job 
as a result it is time to slap on a dye.

To help calm the irritation I have been using a mix of as pure as possible hair products 
and good old T-Gel Shampoo, my quest for paraben/silicon free products lead me to discovering the
new Timotei range which is infused with 100% organic extracts and free from colourants, parabens
and silicones and costs £1 a bottle.
Too good not to try wouldn't you agree?

The Timotei Pure Haircare is a range of four products - a 2-in-1 shampoo, a normal shampoo, 
a dry shampoo and a conditioner all which are aimed at normal to greasy hair.
The products are all infused with green tea extract which results in a surprisingly fresh green/leaf
type scent that always works wonderfully in hair products.
In my opinion the coolest part of this range is that as well as the four products above you
can purchase a refill bottle of shampoo which has 87% packaging than the regular bottle.
So not only is the products kind to the hair and scalp but also the environment!
I hope they roll out the same idea for the conditioner too.

Over the last year or so I have tried and tested a number of natural hair products free from parabens etc
and the one thing I could never quite get to grip with is the lack of foam/lather the shampoo's produce.
I know that lather doesn't necessarily equate to a good product but I feel cleaner when a product is
rather sudsy and I can happily report that the Timotei Pure Shampoo fits the bill nicely.
It lathers up a dream and leaves my hair feeling clean while being gentle to both my hair and scalp.
The conditioner is also of great quality, thick and moisturising without being heavy or leaving
behind a residue on the hair shaft.

Not bad for £1 a bottle eh!

I can not find these online at the moment but they are £1 a bottle in Asda
and around the same prices in most drug stores and supermarkets in the UK.

  1. I'm pretty sure when I was little my nan uses to buy Timotei shampoo and conditioner but they never looked anything like this. These sound really nice though and I love the refill pack for the shampoo, more brands should do that! xx

    1. Haha mine too :) yes I agree how cool are the refills, i'd love more brands to do this x

  2. Wow, I haven't used Timotei for years and years.... it's just a brand I remember from my childhood really. But £1 a bottle and paraben and silicone free sounds almost too good to be true! I definitely need to try this range!

    1. Honestly me neither it was always something my gran bought but at £1 I though why not and it's really quite good :)

  3. ive been using natural haircare for almost 2 yrs and for some weird reason recently, my scalps burning. idk why. is it possible to develop an allergic reaction to a completely harmless formulation

    1. You can become allergic to anything even natural formulas sadly :(
      I'd go to the doctor and see if they can pin point the allergy.

  4. deffinely going to try this!

  5. Hey

    I'd be a bit careful if your hair is always itchy after dying it, as this happened to my sister and each time would get a bit worse until one day she had the worst allergic reaction, causing her whole face to swell up and big blisters in her scalp and things! Luckily she didn't go into anphalatic shock or anything, but she was on antibiotics and very ill with it for a while and now can never dye her hair again.

    I'm sure you always do a patch test and things and I'm not trying to be patronising but just letting you know what happened :) This was after we had done a patch test as well which appeared to come out fine, so I would be a bit wary as your head shouldn't itch when you dye your hair, which is something we thought was normal for my sister, but apparently not!

    I used to use timotei a few years ago when I had my hair highlighted. I used the one for blonde hair and it made it look really lovely!


    1. Hey :)
      not at all I appreciate you taking the time to alert me of this.
      I do patch test etc but the problem isn't when I do it but a week after
      it's like my scalp dries up from the chemicals and becomes itchy.
      I don't think i'm allergic just that my skin doesn't quite appreciate the dye...oddly it happens mostly with red based browns :s
      Thank you for sharing this with me and I hope your sister is back
      to normal :) x

  6. Excellent price - £1! I used to use Timotei years ago but love the fact they've updated their packaging and formulas! Love the packaging of the conditioner especially, a bit like the Original Source Shower Gels. Wish I'd known about this before I shelled out £12 on a Nioxin shampoo LOL! Mary x

  7. Great tip! I'd like to try a natural shampoo like this, especially if its SLS free, is it?

  8. I want to use these products because they are natural products of hair and more chemical free products.As such there will not be any side effects like hair fall,dandruff,etc."

  9. It's so important to be extra careful with your hair on holidays- all the heat, sea and pool water do it no good at all! This is a great selection you have here, I love Percy & Reed so must check these bits out.

  10. Rokderm, from the ingredient's list, it doesn't look like the shampoo is SLS free unfortunately...

  11. Perfect piece of writing rich in information. I have been looking for such a post for a long time.

  12. I just discovered this range, and it is AMAZING! I used to use the blue herbal essences but felt my hair was "clarted" with residue so only just realised that was why my hair was getting so greasy so quickly. These products get the hair squeaky clean but so soft and shiny it looks like i've used a shine spray :)

  13. Good to know you can get it in Asda for £1. I got mine for £2.99 in Superdrug last week and also just did a quick review. Interesting to see the different feelings depending on hair type.
