Review: Madara Colour & Shine Shampoo and Conditioner

I occasionally get the chance to review products made in other countries. I was excited when I received products from Madara, a company from Latvia. They make a Colour and Shine Shampoo and Conditioner, which I have reviewed below.

  • Gentle on color-treated hair
  • Conditioner has a light detangling effect
  • Smells slightly of apples
  • Shampoo is Eco Cert certified
  • Attractive bottles
  • Recycled packaging
  • Luxury Price (around $27 each)
I love how these products are presented in such a lovely way on the website, which clearly lists them as vegan and gluten-free. I also like how the ingredients are clearly listed. However, the texture of these products was a little unusual. The shampoo wasn't as thick as I am used to, and the conditioner was a sort of brown paste. The smell was pleasant but had a hint of grassiness. The products seemed gentle on my hair and worked well, but the formula was quite different from conventional products. The shampoo and conditioner both rate about a 5 on the EWG Skin Deep database, due to ingredients such as the fragrance, limonene, and benzyl alcohol. I'm assuming this is a little high due to the way the EWG handles fragrance, but I'm not sure. If you are in Europe and looking for gentle hair care for color-treated hair, this might be worth checking out.

Also available on shampoo and conditioner.
