Can I mix and match products from different ranges?
ABSOLUTELY! That is the Noughty way. All our formulation are compatiable with one another, so feel free to pick and mix between product ranges on what you feel relates to you. We understand that you might not just have one haircare concern, so let our products speak to you and play and explore all things Noughty.
I'm new to natural hair care and my hair feels dry, tangled, matted, sticky or heavy after using Noughty for the first time. Am I doing something wrong?
When you’re making the transition to natural haircare products from conventional haircare, essentially, you're asking your hair to go through a detox process. If you’ve ever tried a detox yourself, you’ll know they aren’t always the most pleasant of processes, but the result is usually worth a little patience!
So, what's happening to your hair as you transition and why? Conventional ingredients, such as silicones, leave residues that can coat the hair shaft; build-up that can weigh the hair down and leave it looking dull. This is where the detox comes in. It can take several washes to remove the build-up caused by a conventional haircare product. That’s why we recommend using Noughty for at least 8 washes. Patience always pays off.
Like you, every head of hair is unique: your hair detox symptoms and how long it takes to see the real benefits can vary. For some, their hair can feel tangled, dry and brittle and some may notice an oily scalp. For others, the detox works wonders, and hair is left feeling and smelling gorgeous - we hope this is you!
You might only experience one of these issues in the detox and transition process, or maybe a few, but rest assured we have some advice about how to handle the challenges while your hair re-adjusts to natural. For further support with your transition to Noughty naturals head here.
Alternatively, you may be using a product that’s not quite suited to you, so it's worth taking our hair quiz to discover your personalised haircare regime here or emailing the team at firstname.lastname@example.org for further advice.
Why doesn’t Noughty shampoo lather / bubble as much as other brands?
Sulphates are often added to make products foam. They are detergents or surfactants commonly found in cleansing products, their primary function is to cleanse and secondary to create a good foam.
Noughty is formulated with alternative naturally derived detergents that are just as effective for cleaning your hair and still create that lovely gentle foam experience. The trick is to add plenty of water. Many people associate foaming properties with cleansing, but these two things do not have to be related. So don’t worry, Noughty will still leave you with that lovely clean feeling!
Do your haircare products contain protein?
Because our Noughty products are 97% natural, many of them contain trace levels of proteins however the products that we have specifically added proteins to are To The Rescue Anti-Frizz Serum and Hello Curls Primer. If your locks prefer a low-protein option, we advise to avoid these products.
I have a sensitive scalp, can I use Noughty?
All haircare products in the Noughty range are 97% natural and are formulated to be extremely gentle, leaving out possible irritants such as sulphates and parabens. If your scalp is sensitive, try our Care Taker unscented range. These products are specifically designed to be more sensitive for the scalp.
However, if you have any history of skin problems or allergies you should speak to your GP first and carry out a patch test on your wrist or behind your ear prior to using any of our products for the first time.

However fear not we have our haircare quiz to aid your decision making and if wanting some more 121 advise feel free to email us at email@example.com.
What’s the difference between the Leave-In conditioner to a convensional one?
It's all in the formulation! The levels of waxes, emollients, esters, and actives are chosen to work as a leave-in conditioner or a rinse off. Its a preference thing; so whether your hair is happy with the traditional methods or is looking for something a little long lasting we have both Noughty option available to you. You're welcome!
What is the difference between a conditioner and a treatment mask?
These are formulated to work differently. The levels of waxes, emollients, esters, and actives are chosen to have an immediate or a more deeper conditioning affect.
What Noughty product can I use on keratin-treated hair?

Do you have a low-poo / no-poo option?
Yes, we do! 1 Hit Wonder Co-Wash which can be used instead of a shampoo. Cleanse and condition in one hit, with this non-foaming co-wash, for fragile and overworked hair. The 97% natural formula gently removes impurities without drying or stripping hair.

What product would be suitable for my dreadlocks, braids, or weave?
As dreadlocks, braids and weaves can hold onto residue and build-up of product can occur, the best route would be a clarifying shampoo. Detox Dynamo is our clarifying shampoo and can be used on all hair types.
Can I use Noughty products on my extensions?
Yes, Noughty can be used on extensions. Whether they are
human hair or synthetic extensions, sulphates can shorten their life, and affect their integrity. Silicones can loosen bonds and cause extensions to slip off the hair they are attached to. Even if you avoid putting silicone-based products directly onto bonds, they build up on your extensions, forming an impenetrable barrier that stops conditioner or treatments working their magic to nourish and repair. We choose not to use silicones or sulphates in any Noughty product, so they are safe to care for your extensions.
Our product experts have written a blog about how to care for your extensions using Noughty products here.
Are Noughty products safe for colour treated hair?
All Noughty haircare products are kind on colour and a gentler alternative to conventional haircare, but Colour Bomb and Blondie Locks ranges are more specifically designed to protect and enhance colour treated hair. If you're looking to banish brassy, yellow and orange tones from blonde, grey or silver hair, Purple Reign can help.
Arming yourself with the basics of science can help manage colour fade and frustration, so let’s begin a Noughty lesson over at the blog.
What is the best way to get healthy looking hair after a colour treatment?
The Noughty method would be use products such as conditioners, leave in conditioners or deep treatments masks within your haircare routine. We would also strongly advise not to over style with heat, because your hot enough! ;)
How important is to protect your hair from the heat?
SUPER DUPER! Like sunscreen is a must for our skin, heat protection is a no brainer for our hair. This small addition to your haircare routine can add a preventative measure to minimise head damage to those magical manes. We recommend either of our sassy serums, be that To The Rescue Serum with added anti-static protection or Frizz Magic Serum helping to combat those Frizz outbreaks.
Why does the consistency seem different to the last Noughty haircare product I ordered?
All Noughty’s fabulous formulations are a high % natural (a minimum of 97% to be exact) and as a result these natural ingredients can change in viscosity from batch to batch. This does not effect the benefits of your favourite Noughty shampoo, conditioner, treatment or styling product but may mean the consistency from one order to another could differ. So if you are concerned that your latest order seemed thinner or thicker when applied fear not. These Noughty must haves will still help you in achieving that good hair day feeling. Enjoy!
