AYUR HERBAL SHAMPOO- AMLA & SHIKAKAI WITH REETHA
By Vinita K.
This is my first post ever and I’m super excited to be a part of IMBB. I have been following IMBB for the last one year and it has been fun.
I am going to review Ayur’s herbal shampoo. It has Amla , Shikakai and Reetha in it. All are considered to be good for the hair. I picked this up because I wanted something herbal for my hair and Ayur is a very well known brand. I had tried their face wash a few years back for my oily skin. Okay now let us come back to the shampoo.
Usage: Use once or twice a week depending upon the condition of your hair.
Ingredients: Aqua, Sodium Laureth Sulphate, Cocomonoethanolamide, Cocobetain, Amla(Embelica officinalis) Extract, Shikakai(Acacia concina) Extract,Reetha(Sapindus mukorossi) Extract, Propylene Glycol, EDTA, Phenoxyethanol, Methyl Paraben, Propyl Paraben, Imidazolidinyl Urea, Colour, Fragrance. (Phew!! What a long list of chemicals)
Price: MRP INR 120 (got it for INR 118) for 500 ml
My take on Ayur herbal shampoo
I always thought that herbal products are completely herbal but when I saw the ingredients of this shampoo I actually realised that it has got so many chemicals in it! Maybe that’s the reason why they have mentioned that it should be used only once or twice a week and not daily.
This shampoo has a little runny consistency and is brownish in colour. When I use it to wash my hair after a week I really require a lot of it. It lathers well and has a mild herbal fragrance that doesn’t linger for long. After the wash my hair feels soft and smooth. I have been using it for more than a month now. I feel it is good. It does condition my hair as I have not been using any kind of conditioner after my wash. It has not actually controlled my dandruff but let’s see maybe it will over a period of time.
- Very pocket friendly.
- Easily available.
- Contains herbal extracts.
- Has a conditioning effect.
- A lot of product is needed for a single wash.
- Has a runny consistency.
- Not 100% herbal.
Will I repurchase this product?
Maybe yes, I would like to try their other variants.
IMBB Rating: 3.5/5 (Because of the chemicals in it)
