Originally based in Europe, this premium hair care brand is 100 per cent natural, organic, paraben-free, and is not tested on animals.

It promises to heal your hair with every wash, using natural raw materials, organic extracts and the purest spring water enriched with ions from Laguna Fuente de Piedra in Andalusia, Spain. The range of products targets the health of the scalp as well as the hair.

Their ‘Glamourous by Nature concepts sets out to prove that luxury and sustainability can go hand in hand.

I tried out the Moisture Wellness Shampoo and Moisture Wellness Care. At $36 for a 250ml it costs a pretty penny – so I wanted to know, can it live up to the hype?

After using the products a couple of times, my hair definitely felt a lot softer, smoother and silkier. And I even got a few comments about how lovely my hair looked too!

Unlike some other natural shampoos, this one lathered-up fairly well, although having thick hair meant I did have to use quite a bit for a thorough wash. With long, thick hair like mine, 250ml could disappear fairly quickly.

The shampoo is also quite thick, so make sure you give it a really good rinse, and remember that you only need to use a small amount. I ended up feeling like my hair was full of product when I dried it after the first use so take heed!

The conditioner, though, is almost faultless. As someone who, against better advice, likes to blow-dry my hair frequently, this product has helped put some life back into those fly away, dry ends. It feels like it has restored some moisture and gives protection from all that heat.

My hair is as soft as silk now – although I would expect it at such a price. But Fuente, which is touted as a world first in natural hair cosmetic, offers a good product for those who love to live more sustainably, but don’t want to give up life’s little luxuries either.
