Today, I am reviewing Forest Essentials Bhringraj and Shikakai Hair Cleanser. Having used Forest Essentials Bhringraj and Shikakai Hair Thickening Spray, I was not quite pleased with the results since I had used this spray in winters when my hair and scalp tend to get dry and flaky. I waited for spring to set in and started using their hair cleanser. To know, if this shampoo gets a good review from me or not, kindly continue reading.

My Experience with Forest Essentials Bhringraj and Shikakai Hair Cleanser:
Bhringraj and Shikakai Hair Cleanser is a recent launch by Forest Essentials in their hair care range. I like using natural and organic herbal products made using the Ayurveda process, so I chose this hair cleanser. I have thin, chemically treated and damaged hair. I also tend to get dandruff, due to the usage of hot water in extremely cold weather. I have frequent hair fall issues too. Using herbal and natural products effectively aid in combating some of these issues. I regularly use bhingraj hair oil and have noticed significant changes for good. Hence, I bought a shampoo with bhringraj as the key ingredient for additional benefits. Bhringraj strengthens the hair and aids hair growth; it also nourishes the scalp and prevents dandruff.
Shikakai has a naturally mild pH that gently cleanses the hair and scalp without stripping the natural oils while boosting the hair strength. Firstly, I apply bhringraj hair oil on my scalp and leave it on for fifteen to twenty minutes. Then, I wash my hair using Forest Essentials Bhringraj and Shikakai Hair Cleanser. My hair and scalp feel thoroughly cleansed. Also, it makes my hair soft and smooth. I don’t feel the need to use a conditioner but definitely, I use a serum post hair wash.
Forest Essentials Bhringraj and Shikakai Hair Cleanser controls hair fall, prevents breakage, makes my hair stronger and promotes regrowth. Also, it helps in controlling dandruff but does not eliminate the dandruff issues. So, I keep getting dandruff on and off. However, this could be due to the water type, continuous exposure to air conditioners, using hot water and weather conditions. Overall, I am quite okay with this shampoo. However, I prefer using Forest Essentials Japapatti and Brahmi Hair Cleanser as it can be used throughout all seasons in my case.
