Wella Professionals Elements Range Review + Summer Giveaway!

Sulfates free, Parabens free and Artificial Colourants free - Sounds magical to the ears right?! Well that exactly is the case with the all new Wella Professionals elements range that was launched recently and I have been hooked onto the products since the last few months thanks to its composition and effects. A squeaky clean and healthy scalp along with nourished and vibrant hair are the results of using this amazing all NATURAL range.

Since going the organic and natural way is the mantra these days, Wella couldn't have had a better timing to launch the Elements Range which has been inspired by nature and the Amazon rainforest. Nimrat Kaur launched the Wella Elements Range with Wella Innovation Expert Dr. Kerstin Meyer Lipp who took us through the range in detail.

I also got a chance to get a one on one with Dr. Kerstin Meyer Lipp and got all my questions answered about the magical range that took 2 years to develop so that it would be absolutely natural in nature and give you amazing results despite being free from sulfates, parabens and artificial colourants. She gave me indepth answers to all my questions which I am sharing with you.

According to her the reason why Wella decided to invent this range was, “I think natural products have made their way back in fashion. People are becoming increasingly aware of the ingredients contained in the products that they use in everyday life– such as hair care products. As part of trying to live a healthy lifestyle, they are now looking for more natural alternatives which contain fewer chemicals, but do not compromise on performance.”

Elements Renewing Shampoo

The Wella Professionals Elements Renewing Shampoo has been developed using the NuTREE Complex, which is a unique natural tree extract combining the ingredients that give trees their strength and is found in the forests of Germany. The exclusive NuTree complex has been a scientific breakthrough in the world of hair care and has been developed by Wella. This complex works as an antioxidant to reduce free radical damage and also has anti-irritant properties that help in calming the scalp. It provides upto 10 times more strength by strengthening the hair root as well as to the hair, thus protecting from breakage and renewing hair vitality. The keratin structure in the shampoo is also formulated in such a way that even without chemicals, the hair still looks equally shiny and healthy. It is this exclusive NuTREE complex, that eliminates the use of sulfates, parabens and artificial colorants.

Elements Renewing Mask

The Wella Elements Renewing Mask is a combination of the NuTREE complex and Panthenol, which is commonly known as pro-vitamin B5. These together penetrate the hair to deeply nourish by repairing the inner keratin cell structure and binding moisture in the hair. The result is smooth, healthy and nourished hair from the roots to the tip.

Also the range has a completely new fragrance which is inspired by the green wood of the Amazon rainforest and has been specially developed for the range thus making the appeal even more luxurioius. The products can be used on all types of hair and on chemically treated hair as well. People with dandruff and chemically treated hair benefit the most because of it's ability to make your scalp squeaky clean, nourished and strong without chemicals unlike other products

My verdict: Each word of what she said about the product effect turned out true. In the last few months I have seen reduced breakage, shinier and stronger hair. The shampoo and mask have a lovely fragrance which is quite different and refreshing and doesn't smell like anything I have used yet. Since there are no artificial colourants, the shampoo is a transparent liquid and the mask is white in colour and creamy in texture. 

The froth is there despite no sulfates which also was a real surprise. It shows how deeply researched the products are and the level of expertise used to invent the range. The packaging is simple and elegant with soothing colours like green and white used to represent the natural aspect of the product. The products are a little steep in the pricing with the shampoo being priced at INR 975/- and the mask at INR 1075/- but are worth every penny that you pay for something this natural and high end. The shampoo can be used daily and the mask needs to be used just once a week for best results. Even on my coloured hair, it has had brilliant effects and if you have noticed my hair grow at an astonishing pace, that is all thanks to the Wella Elements range :-)

  5. Before headbath I apply a mixture of 2:1/2:1 ratio of coconut oil:lemon juice:castor oil
    This remedy is best and worked for me
    Castor oil helps in blood circulation and in turn it strengthens the roots.
    I used lemon as a combination with these essential oils becoz if we use lemon juice alone it turns our scalp dry bcoz its acidic but when mixed with oil its does wonders.I combined lemon juice because we're using two different oils here n all of us know dat oil gets retained in our scakf even after hair wash.when combined lemon with oil it removes excess oil from the scalp and leaves our scalp healthier.
    As in summer our hair turns out frizzy dis is the best remwdyto make them super silky and also it has got a advantage of reducing hair fall
    Apply it just before an hour to headbath and days it u get silky shiny hair.and and and this is baba ramdevs remedy :-)

  14. Heyiee.. your review of the new Wella range is amazing and makes me wanna try it.. as summers has arrived oiling hair becomes a no-no as it promotes acne on the already summer irritated I switch to lighter oils like almond and coconut and avoid heavier oils like castor & olive addition I make use of hair masks to moisturize my scalp & strands.. using aloe vera gel, honey-curd, green tea rinse makes hair smooth, moisturized and frizz free.

    This is one hair mask I use specially during summers. N it works wonders.
    Egg: 1
    Yogurt: 2-3 Table-spoon (Depending on the length of your hair)
    Olive oil: 2 tea-spoon (you can also use coconut oil instead of olive oil)
    Mix all ingredient and apply to ur hair including your scalp. Tie ur hair in a knot and shampoo normally after an hour.

  16. My Natural Hair Care Tip is as follows :-

    Every Sunday, massage your hair and scalp with warm olive oil for ten minutes. After that take a cotton cloth and soak it in warm water then wrap the cotton cloth around your hair. Allow it to stay there for minimum 10 minutes. And then wash it off.
    Reason – Massaging the scalp will help stimulate blood flow, which helps feed the hair, preventing hair loss and restoring healthy hair. Simple yet enriching way to make your hair shiny, soft, strong, manageable and superbly textured even in scorching summers :)

  17. Well, i take head massage every Saturday from Mom with home-made mustard oil and leave it for a day. Next day i.e. Sunday morning i wash my hair with shampoo and apply amla ritha n sikkakai paste on my hair with gentle hands and leave it for 10 min. Again i wash my hair and cover it up with the warm towel gently squeezed in from the mixture (dipped in water mixed with rose water n few drops of lemon) it was put in.
    The simple yet natural way to bring the strength and shine is so relaxing and powerful that you feel at peace, so light and afresh with all-together new vibrant energy :)

  19. I follow the simple tricks in summer season -
    1) Wear hat or scarf on head to protect my hair from getting frizzy, dry and dull.
    2) Wash it every 3rd day to remove dirt and keep my head cool. But completely restrict the usage of dryer.
    3) Once a week champi from mom to regain the shine n lustre along with the strength
    4) Stay hydrated with lots of fluids and if reqd. i do go for a hair trim :)

  20. Hey Ritcha,

    The tips that I religiously follow during summers are -
    - Keeping hair tied, carrying a scarf or an umbrella to beat the heat and to prevent direct sun damage.
    - More frequent washing of hair to get rid of accumulated sweat, grime and pollutants.
    - Applying hair packs of curd or lemon.
    - using coconut water as a natural conditioner for smooth, soft hair that shines.

    Following you and Wella India everywhere.
