Today, I will be reviewing a charcoal-based shampoo from Aroma Magic. Read on for more details on this activated bamboo charcoal shampoo.
INR 295 for 250 ml.
My Experience with Aroma Magic Activated Bamboo Charcoal Shampoo:
This shampoo comes in a big bulky bottle with a pump applicator. I’m really glad that it has a pump to dispense the shampoo. The details are printed at the back and the front. The packaging is convenient as the pump disposes a good amount of shampoo in one go.
The shampoo is a grey-colored liquid with some sheen to it. The consistency is neither too thick nor too thin. It has a nice flow-y consistency. The fragrance is exactly the same as the face wash from the same range. It has kind of an “attar” type fragrance. I would have liked it even better if the fragrance was a bit different, but one thing I like is that the fragrance is milder than that of the face wash.
The shampoo is kind of weird in terms of how it works. I’ll tell you why I found it weird – I always dilute my shampoo with some water before using it on my hair, and I did the same with this one. At first, I added 3 pumps of the shampoo in some water and worked it on wet hair, but it did not lather much and I could feel it not working at all. I could feel the oil in my hair. I thought I should add more shampoo, so I pumped 2 more times and repeated the same process, but again, had the same issue. Next, I used the shampoo without diluting it and now it worked and created enough lather. One would think that some water would make it easier to lather up the shampoo but this one works better the other way around 😛
It washes off pretty easily and leaves you with clean scalp. It does provide some moisture to the scalp because my hair did not feel dry after using it. It doesn’t add shine or bounce to the hair, but does make your hair soft and a bit silky. I did not see that many tangles in my hair after my hair was completely dry. My hair felt a bit stronger and nourished too. It removed all the oil from my hair very well too.
