I have used many Fab India products ranging from face packs to scrubs, from under eye gel to gel scrubs and soaps recently. The products which I have never used were hair care products. I recently came to know that Fab India has launched a new range of personal care products called as Silk Protein Range. I made up my mind to pick up at least one hair care product from the store as everyone talks a lot about their shampoos a lot. My sister uses their Avocado shampoo religiously so I thought of picking that only. But when I saw this newly launched range I decided to take this one rather that the Avocado Shampoo. The product which I picked was Fab India Silk Protein Shampoo and I am reviewing the same here.
What the company claims about the product?
A nourishing shampoo especially formulated for dry hair. Enriched with Sericin, a silk protein, it helps restore moisture and strengthen protein bonds in the hair.
Ingredients: Purified Water, Sodium Laureth Sulphate, CAPB, Glycol Distearate, Sodium Chloride, Glycerine, Fragrance, Panthenol, Polyquaternium 10, Silk Protein, Methylchloroisothiazolinone.
Packaging: The shampoo comes in a white translucent bottle with a screw cap having a press/open type of nozzle for taking out the shampoo. Quite convenient to use and you can very well control the amount of shampoo you want. Travel friendly as no-leakage and spillage chances are there. You can see the amount of product left inside the bottle by just placing it in front of light source.
Shelf Life: 36 months
My experience with the product:
The shampoo is a cream based silky white colored liquid of medium consistency, nor too thick neither too runny. It has some typical creamy fragrance which is not bothersome, just ok. I think they have the same fragrance for the entire Silk Protein range as I checked the testers for every product available from this range at the store. This shampoo is specially formulated for dry hair so I picked it up for the days when I have to shampoo without oiling my hair in emergency cases. But for trial purposes or you can say to check the efficiency I used it on my heavily oiled hair too. Actually that was the first time I used it. To be very frank I literally dip my hair in oil while massaging. I thought that I will have to use generous amount for shampooing but I was wrong. My oil was gone just the way I shampoo with my normal routine shampoo. I felt that it made my hair dry after washing but once I dried my hair there was no dryness but there was no softness either. There is no conditioning part associated with this shampoo in spite of being formulated for dry hair. I normally wrap my hair in a cotton towel for drying. When I did the same after washing with this shampoo my hair became hard and tight. Ufffff…. Now I wonder how my hair would have been if I would have washed them without oiling. My hairs were looking like I have washed them 2-3 days back. I usually have just a few strands of hair on my drain filter after washing my hair but this time they were more in number. This totally made me think that whether I should use this in future or not. I finally decided that no I will not use this anymore as I just can’t experiment more with my pretty good hair.
This was the first and last time is used this shampoo.
Pros of the shampoo:
- Fragrance is good and does not linger you for long
- Removes oil effectively
Cons of the shampoo:
- Everything else is a con. No good things associated with this shampoo.
Finally I would not at all recommend this shampoo to people who have dry or normal hair like me. I think still there are chances for people with oily scalp. But do use it on your own risk. The first experience ever with a hair care product from the house of Fab
India failed miserably for me. Now I repent for not picking up the Avocado Shampoo.
