Review: Green People Scent Free Conditioner

Review Green People Scent Free Conditioner
If you have been with my blog since the beginning, you will know my love for Desert Essence Red Raspberry Conditioner. Sadly I have suspicions that my most recent bottle has been causing irritation. I don’t know if the formula has been tweaked, maybe I’m imaging things or perhaps it’s just one of those weird unexplained events often common to having sensitive skin.

After all the global events occurring at this time, I feel super lame for saying this but I’m pretty gutted about having to shop for a new conditioner. I know I need to get over it lol. I’m struggling to find something even half decent in comparison to Desert Essence and added to my woes is the need to avoid certain allergens which limits my choices. I should explain that my hair is fine and coloured so I need to find that middle ground between hydrating the dryness but without weighing it down. 

I started out with Faith in Nature Fragrance Free Conditioner which I will not bother to review because it’s the most useless product I have ever encountered. It’s as runny as a shampoo and didn’t make a difference to my hair. I’ve had better luck with Green People Scent Free Conditioner but it’s not a perfect match to Desert Essence. The reason why I’m not singing its praises is it doesn’t have the same detangling power and if I use too much I get lank hair. The Green People conditioner is not a particularly thick product and I’d say it feels thinner than Desert Essence. I do miss a raspberry fragrance but scent free does eliminate the risk of irritation. 

You can probably tell from this rather flat review that Green People Scent Free Conditioner is "middle of the road" for me. It’s not the worse one I’ve ever purchase but it just cannot compete with my favourite. I enjoy using other Green People products and would still recommend them for readers with allergies and sensitive skin. 

Have you tried Green People? What do you think of the brand? Do you have a favourite product?

    1. They are a good brand, I've yet to try a scrub so I'll have to look into that next time I'm shopping :)

  2. Oh no, such a shame you didn't like Faith in Nature conditioner! I haven't tried that particular one but I tried several others from Faith in Nature and love them all. Yes, they are a bit runny but I don't mind that, it makes them easier to spread onto the hair. And they really make my hair more manageable and softer. But I understand not everybody will like them.

    1. Great to hear you enjoy Faith in Nature, I might try something else from the range at a later date, I've tried out some of their shampoos so haven't dismissed them entirely :)

  3. I've used both the Faith in Nature conditioner and the Green People one. Like you I didn't find that the FIN one was any good, but I've never had much luck with their hair products. I ended up using it as a pre-poo/co-wash as it did absolutely nothing. I have used the GP one for years as it is easy to buy and I like that there is no smell but I do wish it was thicker. Perhaps you might find the Dessert Essence fragrance free conditioner works better for you as although I haven't used the raspberry one I know that the DS fragrance free conditioner is a lot thicker than the GP and FIN ones. I would use the DS more often than the GP one if it was more readily available in the UK.

    1. Thanks for sharing your experience. I'm currently trying out Madara but I have the Fragrance Free Desert Essence one on my back up list and plan to order it in the future if all else fails, I was keen to support brands readily available here but it's not going to plan lol :D

  4. I found the Green People shampoo and conditioner invaluable when I was experiencing a particularly bad eczema episode. I am back to using 'normal' shampoo now but really fancy trying the raspberry conditioner you mention. Sensitive skin is such a pain and I find that when I'm having a flare up even the most sensitive friendly bland products that I can usually use cause me problems.

    1. Totally agree, sensitive skin/eczema is really hard to maintain when flaring, sometimes even just plain old water can cause problems with my Urticaria. I love Desert Essence hair care, they do offer a fragrance free version which I have yet to try but the Red Raspberry has been a staple for many years :)
