My Experience with Boots Botanics Intensely Hydrating Shampoo:

I recently purchased this shampoo along with the conditioner to go with it. I like to change up my hair routine every now and then. Over the last few years, I think I have experimented with a whole bunch of drugstore and high-end shampoos. Lately, I have made it a point to gravitate towards shampoos that are at least sulphate-free. I have been quite happy with the L’Oreal EverCreme shampoo and conditioner, but I was still quite keen to experiment some more.

This shampoo looked quite nice. I am all for moisturising and hydrating shampoos, and when I see something as being marked sulphate-free, I trust that it will not be very harsh on my hair and scalp. I have long and thick, normal to dry hair, so this shampoo seemed like a good choice for the same.

It comes in a sturdy, easy-to-use and travel-friendly bottle (unlike a lot of shampoos that are packaged in tubes). It is priced very reasonably.

The shampoo is a creamy-gel, semi-clear shampoo that is neither too runny nor too thick in consistency. It has a pleasant floral fragrance, which will enhance your in-shower experience. However, the fragrance won’t last in your hair for much longer after the wash (as is the case with quite a few heavily fragranced shampoos). The shampoo lathers well (despite being a sulphate-free product) and I believe that it cleans my hair and scalp quite effectively. It also rinses off quite easily.

Although this claims to be a hydrating shampoo, I don’t really find it to be much different from any other ordinary shampoo. It doesn’t moisturise my hair or leave it softer than usual. In fact, when I wash my hair with this, it feels a little dry and I have to quickly use conditioner to make it softer and more manageable. But it keeps my hair tame and manageable for a few days after the wash.

This is definitely not a bad shampoo. I just don’t find it to be exceptionally hydrating or anything like that. However, it’s a gentle and effective cleanser of the hair and scalp. I have been using it for a few weeks now and I will certainly continue using it for a while.
