The search for my HG hair products – nuNAAT

December 14, 2012 • Beauty, Hair10 Comments

I think the search for holy grail products is a journey every girl goes on, whether it’s skincare, beauty, or hair related. For me, the search for my HG hair products has been the most difficult – of the many products I’ve tried, only a few are even worth mentioning, hence my search continues. 

I was fortunate enough to be given the opportunity to try out a line of hair products from nuNAAT, and based on my thinning, damaged hair, I chose the NAAT Treatment Repair Care with Açai Berry and Keratin line.

nuNAAT 1

From left: hair mask, shampoo, leave-in treatment, and conditioner

This line claims to reverse the affects of age and combat hair loss, thanks to its potent ingredients:

  • Acai berry
  • Vitamins A, B1, C, and E
  • Hydrolyzed Keratin Protein
All 4 products have the  same scent, which reminds me of a berry yogurt protein smoothie, and it’s very light. I can see people liking this light scent, but I’m personally not a fan. However, scent is the last of my concern when it comes to my search ;)

Shampoo

At first I didn’t notice anything special about it, but then I started to see less hair fallout when I shampooed. While I do notice some buildup with this, it’s nothing that a weekly clarifying shampoo can’t solve. However, after using it for almost 2 months, I still ended up switching shampoos, only because my hair tends to “get used to” shampoos after a while.
Price: $7.91 on Amazon

Conditioner

I’m not a fan of conditioners in general because they’re never rich enough for my damaged hair. However, to test out this line, I actually only used this after shampooing, and I was pleasantly surprised by its moisturizing abilities. It doesn’t give my hair that smooth & slick feeling in the shower, but I do notice it after my hair dries.
Price: $8.31 on Amazon

Intensive Hair Mask

Now we’re talking. At first I was disappointed in how thin this mask felt - it’s very yogurt like – not thick or creamy. However, after using this[2. And I didn't even using it for the full 20 minutes, maybe just for 5?], I definitely noticed that my hair was softer and more moisturized. I’ve actually been using this in place of the conditioner every timer I shower now, and my damaged hair is loving it! :D

looks and feels like blueberry yogurt!

Price: $5.90 on Amazon

Leave-in Treatment

This has a richer consistency compared to the hair mask, but nothing too heavy that’d weigh down your hair. Unfortunately I didn’t notice any significant improvements in my hair after using this, as it’s rather comparable to other leave-in treatments I’ve used. On top of its mediocrity, the packaging for this product was just awful. It’s extremely difficult to squeeze out, and I actually ended up squeezing so hard that the side of the bottle cracked:

Proof of poor product design

In the history of products, I don’t think I’ve ever had this happen to me before o_o So  now I have to screw open the cap every time I use it, which ironically is much more convenient. That’s no good -_-
Price: $9.47 on Amazon

Final Verdict

I’m definitely repurchasing the hair mask once I finish it, not to use as a hair mask, but as a conditioner. $5.90 for 17.6 oz worth of product is such a steal, and I wouldn’t feel bad about using it every time :D I might repurchase the shampoo because I do like how my hair reacts to it, but it’s definitely no HG product.

As for the conditioner and leave-in, I’ll pass on those. For the price, I think there are definitely better products out there[3. The hair mask is a better alternative for the conditioner IMO].

Hope you all enjoyed this series, I’ll be posting more hair product reviews in the future! Oh and congratulations to Cat for winning the Marshall’s giftcard giveaway! :D

    Hair product was one of my hardest items to fines especially since I didnt want any strange items in my hair. I found a good product so far. It is from the designline. It's called "enchanted". I love the product. My hair has been a lot healthier since I started using it.

    1. I've never heard of that brand of product before, where did you purchase it? I might have to try it out once I finish my current products.

    haha, that hair mask does look a lot like yogurt. I've never tried a hair mask before, but that sounds like a nice alternative to conditioner. That's too bad that not all of them worked out for you! I'm glad at least 2 were worth buying again.

    Thanks again for holding the giveaway! :D

    I suffer from dandruff and thin hair and even though I really want to try to search for fancy HG products, I'm stuck with boring Head&Shoulders because I know it works. -____-

    The line looks and sounds amazing. It's purple, acai ,_____, Too bad not all the products worked with your hair, but at least the hair mask shows results! The price isn't bad at all!

    How often do you condition? My hair is too oily to condition so I have no idea about the routines there.

    1. I used to have an issue with dandruff as well and h&s worked really well for me as well. But I guess my hair type has changed since then :/

      I condition my hair every time I shower, and because my hair is super damaged, I use a deep treatment every time. But if your hair is healthy, I think regular conditioner + deep conditioning once a week should be good.

  4. The intensive hair mask does look like yoghurt - I almost want to eat it lol! Good to hear that it works really well for hydrating your hair and giving it a bit of TLC :)
