So, who knew that Nodé Fluid Shampoo was the very first product from the creator of Bioderma, Jean Noel Thore, back in the 1970s? Certainly not me. It was formulated as a non-detergent, gentler alternative to regular shampoos for people with scalp irritations and as the name suggests, is more ‘watery’ than a regular shampoo formulation.
I greet any non-standard shampoo with great trepidation having had some awful experiences with shampoos that don’t use sulfates and so on – all very good until you realise they don’t actually clean your hair very well and often take several uses for your strands to acclimatize. In that intervening period, you just have to put up with bad hair, and I just can’t. So, because Bioderma Node (£6) doesn’t use detergent I expected to have to re-wash and in fact, I didn’t. It’s a great shampoo that does foam up a little bit and properly cleans hair. It uses Sodium Lauryl Oat Amino Acids which does the foaming rather than Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (the full ingredient list is below). It’s not a ‘natural’ formula but doesn’t, apparently upset the hydrolipidic layer of either hair or scalp. You can also use it on hair extensions.
I don’t have a sensitive scalp and only occasionally get flaking (couple of uses of Head & Shoulders sees it off) but I think it’s always worth knowing about alternatives for when or if you ever do need them. There are several variants in the inexpensive Nodé range (so called because NO and DEtergents) that you might want to explore HERE.
