I came across this shampoo while I was rummaging across the online stores in search of a shampoo which would help to clean my oily scalp effectively and at the same time, aid in stopping hair loss. I visited an e-shopping store and found that this product got quite a few positive reviews. Hence, I decided to give it a try and today, I am going to review it here.
What Does Biotique Walnut Bark Shampoo Claim?
This rich, body-building formula is a blend of pure walnut bark, musk root, amla, soap nut and black malya flowers, to thoroughly cleanse, and revive hair for a fuller, thicker, lifted look. PH balanced formula helps prevent hair loss.
Who is supposed to benefit from the product?
Beauties with “fine and thinning hair.”
What does the product claim about the key ingredient?
Walnut bark is derived from a black furrowed tree that exudes a dark brown honey with smoothing and strengthening properties. This rich body building formula is a blend of pure walnut bark, musk root, amla, soap nut and malya flowers which helps to clean hairs thoroughly and revive it for a fuller, thicker and lifted look.
What exactly is Biotique Walnut Bark Shampoo?
This is not a cosmetic product. It has therapeutic properties. It is an “Ayurvedic medicine (for external use only).” It is “organically pure and preservative free.”
Akhrot chal (Jugens regia) 1.5%, Amla (Emblica officinalis) 1.0%, Ritha (Sapindus mukorossi) 2.5, Bhringraj (Eclipta Alba) 2.5%, S.L.S (Sodium Lauryl Sulphate) 8.0%, Himalayan water, Q.S.
Rs. 99 for 120 ml. (Also available at Rs. 146 for 210 ml).
How To Use:
Apply liberally to wet hair and work lather through strands, from scalp to ends. Rinse well with water.
My Experience with Biotique Bio Walnut Bark Fresh Lift Body Building Shampoo:
It comes in a standard Biotique bottle which is somewhat transparent and has a spiral-open green colored cap. The shampoo is transparent and clear in nature, bluish violet in color and smells absolutely fresh. Though I cannot describe the smell in exact terms, it smells somewhat like Clinic Plus shampoo, though it has its own distinctly fresh amla-like property in the fragrance.
It lathers well and can be washed off with ease. It does not leave any residue behind and cleans the scalp of oil and dirt, no matter how intense! Scalp feels fresh and squeaky clean. Hair definitely gets a slightly lifted look, though that may not very noticeable. It doesn’t necessarily add much shine, but hair feels soft and smooth. I feel, anybody with oily hair and scalp would benefit from it.
But there is another thing which I was looking for in the shampoo, and that is an anti-hair loss formula. (I don’t know if it causes hair fall by itself, since I have already been suffering from hair loss for a long time.) But it is definitely, not at all effective in checking hair loss and I kept losing strands of hair extensively even though it claims of “pH balanced formula helps prevent hair loss.”
Pros of Biotique Bio Walnut Bark Fresh Lift Body Building Shampoo:
- It is a herbal shampoo with the goodness of walnut bark, amla and ritha.
- It is easily available, both online and in reputed stores around the city.
- It is affordably priced and one can get it at a discounted price in various online stores.
- It cleanses the scalp and hair efficiently.
- It keeps the hair smooth and free from oil for a long time.
- It lathers well.
- The shampoo smells very fresh (though it’s herbal).
- Not tested on animals.
- Known to be “organically pure and preservative free.”
Cons of Biotique Bio Walnut Bark Fresh Lift Body Building Shampoo:
- It contains SLS.
- Absolutely ineffective in checking hair loss.
- I don’t think people with dry hair would benefit much.
You must definitely give it a try if you have oily scalp and hair. It wonderfully refreshes greasy scalp. However, if you look forward to stop hair loss, you wouldn’t benefit much from it.
I would rate it 3.5 out of 5 (-1 for being ineffective on hair loss and -0.5 because it contains SLS).
