Alverde shampoos are silicone-free and I have been using Alverde shampoos for quite some time now. Here is the review of one of them.
Price: €2 for 200 ml
The active ingredient combination with black pepper from certified organic farming and natural caffeine can activate the hair root and strengthen fine and thinning hair. Age-related hair loss can thus be reduced. The special care formula with thyme extract from certified organic farming can provide full and supple-loose hair. The formula with mild surfactants cleanses your hair thoroughly and gently. Vegan.

My Experience with Alverde Caffeine Shampoo:
The consistency of the product is like any other shampoo and it is not too liquidy. It is transparent and looks like a gel. The shampoo smells very, very different; the scent is neither floral nor fruity. It smells like a mix of pepper and wood. I am not sure if everyone would like the fragrance, so make sure to sniff it before purchasing. For me personally, the fragrance was not bothersome. The fragrance also does not last on hair after the shower. It smells like pepper only while you are using the shampoo. The shampoo has black pepper extracts, hence the fragrance.
This shampoo comes in a very sturdy packaging. The bottle looks rectangular and has a flap lid. The bottle is white in colour with a picture of black pepper and thymine on it. The cap is light green and it’s a flap cap that opens and closes easily. The bottle can stand upside down so that the shampoo is readily available for usage. The packaging is quite different which makes it unique and attractive. The whole packaging is quite sturdy and perfect for travelling. The only problem is that the shampoo does not have an accompanying conditioner.
The bottle contains 200 ml of product. The shampoo foams up very well and rinsing it off is also easy. It does not need a lot of water to wash off either. While rinsing off, the hair feels squeaky clean. The shampoo works very well in getting rid of all dirt and sweat. The shampoo claims that it will strengthen the roots of the hair and reduce hair fall. I have been using it for a few weeks now but could not see any changes in hair fall or roots.
I need a little more shampoo for my hair, which means the product gets used up much faster. The hair feels soft and nice after use. There is no conditioner from the same line and so I use something else. I wish there were a matching conditioner. Overall, it’s a good cleaning shampoo but it does not offer anything more. It’s especially meant for people who do not like floral or fruity fragrance and want something herbal.
