AYUR HERBAL SHAMPOO- AMLA & SHIKAKAI WITH REETHA
By Vinita K.
This is my first post ever and I’m super excited 🙂 to be a part of IMBB. I have been following IMBB for the last one year and it has been fun.
I am going to review Ayur’s herbal shampoo. It has Amla , Shikakai and Reetha in it. All are considered to be good for the hair. I picked this up because I wanted something herbal for my hair and Ayur is a very well known brand. I had tried their face wash a few years back for my oily skin. Okay now let us come back to the shampoo.
Product claims: Ayur herbal shampoo- Amla and Shikakai with Reetha for normal hair (extra Conditioner). Amla and Shikakai concentrated rich lathering formula which leaves hair exceptionally lustrous and healthier. Natural herbal extracts clean the scalp, retaining its natural oils. It is also helpful in case of dandruff, falling and greying of hair.
Usage: Use once or twice a week depending upon the condition of your hair.

(Phew!! What a long list of chemicals)
Price: MRP INR 120 (got it for INR 118) for 500 ml
My take on Ayur herbal shampoo
I always thought that herbal products are completely herbal but when I saw the ingredients of this shampoo I actually realised that it has got so many chemicals in it! Maybe that’s the reason why they have mentioned that it should be used only once or twice a week and not daily.
This shampoo has a little runny consistency and is brownish in colour. When I use it to wash my hair after a week I really require a lot of it. It lathers well and has a mild herbal fragrance that doesn’t linger for long. After the wash my hair feels soft and smooth. I have been using it for more than a month now. I feel it is good. It does condition my hair as I have not been using any kind of conditioner after my wash. It has not actually controlled my dandruff but let’s see maybe it will over a period of time.
- Very pocket friendly.
- Easily available.
- Contains herbal extracts.
- Has a conditioning effect.
- A lot of product is needed for a single wash.
- Has a runny consistency.
- Not 100% herbal.
Will I repurchase this product?
Maybe yes, I would like to try their other variants.
IMBB Rating: 3.5/5 (Because of the chemicals in it)
