Sunsilk Dream Soft and Smooth Shampoo Review

Sunsilk Dream Soft and Smooth Shampoo

Hello IMBB!
After trying so many shampoos for my different hair care needs at different times and the non-availability of my trusted shampoo for more than 10 years I thought of giving something old a try as we all know ‘old is gold’. Here the old depiction is for a shampoo that we all have seen growing along with us… We grew in age, height and health and this shampoo too grew or rather changed in terms of packaging, name, qualities and many more such things.

The product that I will be reviewing here is ‘Sunsilk Dream Soft and Smooth Shampoo’. Oh God! There are so many memories attached with this. They all came vivid once I purchased this and have used it for quite some time now.

What the company claims about the product?
For 20-something single girls, hair is often an emotional rollercoaster. Sunsilk understands and has designed its wash, care and styling collections to address the most common hair dramas in 80 countries around the globe.

Sunsilk Dream Soft and Smooth Shampoo: Created using Ceramide Egg Complex, Sunsilk Dream Soft and Smooth Shampoo is the ideal shampoo for dry hair which has been specially crafted to make your hair soft and smooth. Co-created with Thomas Taw, it cleanses even the driest and roughest of hair while the conditioner acts as a softening agent to rebalance hair condition while creating an outer protection layer to seal in moisture.
ingredients
Price: 184 INR for 400 ml

Shelf Life: 3 years

Packaging: It comes in a sturdy yellow colored bottle with flip cap which makes the shampoo come out easily from the bottle. It is opaque so it is hard to judge the exact amount left inside the bottle. Not at all travel friendly.

My Experience With Sunsilk Dream Soft and Smooth Shampoo

Earlier when I was a child this shampoo used to come in a transparent round, fat plastic bottle with yellow sticker over it with a normal screw cap. The color of the shampoo was pure yellow then. But now the experts have worked on it and now the latest version comes in a nicely shaped bottle and the shampoo is off white in color with silver shimmers particles in it. It is so much fun to see those particles. The liquid looks as if some off white silk cloth has been melted and put into the bottle. The smell is appealing too. The smell lingers on your hair for almost 2 days…  It’s a pleasant smell which is a normal shampoo smell nothing out of the way.

The shampoo does a decent job of cleaning my hair thoroughly without leaving any traces of oil behind. I literally dunk up my hair in oil a night before the day I have to shampoo my hair. This did not make my hair dry even when I washed with it without oiling my hair. It made my hair soft and smooth like silk and left them with a healthy shine which was noticeable. One of my colleagues even touched my hair and asked me about what I did to my hair. My hair did not feel oily for good 2 days. I generally shampoo my hair every alternate day but with this I was able to manage without shampooing even on the third day. I was pretty happy with the results this shampoo gave me.

sounds really good. I alternate between the Pink sunsilk and the Dve shampoos. I think i am going to stick with Sunsilk for a while becos it really makes my hair soft..i know it has parabens but what to do..if i start thinking abt all this stuff, i cant use anything at that rate..

the day i apply oil and then shampoo my hair, my hair behaves really well. but i dont have the time to oil my hair every morning (i really do shampoo every day)

Pallavi June 8, 2012 at 5:16 pm

I oil my hair the previous night before shampooing… and when I am not able to oil then I just mix 1/2 tbsl olive oil or almond oil in a bowl of fresh curd and apply on my hair.. And shampoo after 45 minutes… You can also try that.. :)

Hi pallavi,

What is ur hair type? and did it help in reducing hair fall? I am using “Fab india Aloevera Shampoo” and its causing hairfall ..can i use this I have waist length normal hair.

Pallavi June 8, 2012 at 5:19 pm

I have a normal hair… Neither dry nor oily.. But after 2 days of shampooing my scalp shows some sign of oiliness… But that doesn’t bothers me as I shampoo every alternate day after oiling my hair vigorously.

Wow Pallavi.. Does it really clean up all the oil, without making the hair dry? This is a miracle product then.. My hair is on oily side.. Its mandatory for me to wash my hair every alternate day, else the top of my head looks so shiny… But when i use clarifying shampoos, my hair becomes coarse :( I really really hope this is the shampoo which i’m looking for!! Thanks………………
