NAK Structure Complex smells delicious and is packed with hair-goodness

Every now and then you come across a brand that you just LOVE. Ladies, you know exactly what I mean!  The brand hits all the right notes in every way – from customer interaction, packaging, product quality to brand values. That was how I felt the first time I saw NAK Hair on Instagram (aah.. the wonderful world of technology!). My eye was immediately drawn to this Australian hair care company who really had striking packaging and imagery. I started doing some research to see where I could get my hands on these products and was pleasantly surprised to see some stockists in the Western Cape. So it was a total fan-girl moment when NAK Hair invited me to the launch of their new product- NAK Structure Complex.

For chemically treated, dry and damaged hair. And gorgeous packaging too!

Well ladies and gents the amazement deepened further when I started researching the brand a bit before the launch. A bit of background about this Australian background is they set out to “marry nature and science” and most of their ranges can intermix – like you can use the purple shampoo with the structure complex. More importantly, I learnt some amazing and very pleasing information such as:

  • The products are formulated with natural ingridients and luxury botanicals
  • Sulphate and Paraben free
  • Not tested on animals

Consequently I was really looking forward to learning more about this brand. The launch event was held at Vat Dit Kop Toe in Durbanville. We were treated to such a lovely morning of yummy treats, coffee and The Duchess (A non-alcoholic Gin and Tonic which is delicious!)

So what’s the deal with NAK Structure Complex?

So, suitable for all hair types, the NAK Structure Complex is a protein cleansing and conditioning complex. The product exists to fast track repair and recovery of chemically treated, dry and damaged hair. Additionally, it promises to revive lack lustre hair fibres! It’s formulated with restorative Nano proteins, hydrating sea minerals and thermal ingredients to nurture fragile hair strands. Expose your hair to a lot of heat? The Protein Collection minimises cuticle stress and infuses thermal ingridients which buffer hair from temperature extremes up to 220C! I think our hair takes a serious knock with all the heat we expose it to. The NAK Structure Complex also has a Bond Enhancer Repair Treatment

When you smell this stuff, you’ll know what I mean. It’s delicious

Key Ingredients

Iselux, Acetyl Cysteine, Wheat Protein, Wheat Starch, Marine Collagen Amino Acids.


Like I mentioned earlier, something I adore about the product is it’s packaging. I know, I know, packaging isn’t everything but it sure adds to the overall look and feel of a product. Now the NAK Structure Complex is just one range offered by NAK but each range has unique colors and look.  As you can see the NAK Structure Complex packaging is a light pink with silver and grey text. Very stylish! When you feel the shampoo and conditioner it’s very thick and feels very luxe.


Call me crazy but the smell is almost my favorite thing about this product! I know I know, it makes my hair silky soft and shiny yet I am crazy about the smell. It smells like grape bubblegum and the smell doesn’t fade. Believe me, you’re going to look like this crazy gal sniffing her hair all day. Don’t say I didn’t warn you.


R275 for 375ml for shampoo and same for the conditioner.

My thoughts

My hair is dry and damaged from years of highlighting it so I think this really is the perfect product for my hair. Like makeup, hair products are so specific to your type and needs so it’s always good to do a little research. But for me, this line has been working exceptionally well. My hair is soft, silky and has a nice “Bounce” to it. It’s been feeling so lifeless for so long so it’s a lovely change. Also, it smells delicious which I’m embarrassingly the most excited about!

My hair felt amazing for days afterwards.. so glossy and bouncy!

As always, I’ll be letting you guys know further thoughts on my Instagram stories and photos, so follow me there for updates on my thoughts. I like to use products for the long haul to get a good idea of any further changes etc.

For those of you looking for a vegan friendly range, they have you covered! Try out the Aromas range – I am convinced you won’t be disappointed.
