Reviewing another hair cleanser from Forest Essentials for you all – it’s the Madurai Jasmine and Mogra variant. I have reviewed the Bitter Orange and Cinnamon Hair Cleanser here. I think Forest Essentials have hiked the price of their hair cleansers, now all of them are priced at Rs. 775, earlier they were available at Rs. 680. Read on to know more about this shampoo.
This clear shampoo contains reetha, soya protein, coconut oil, herbal infusions, Jasmine and Mogra essential oil. Gives natural shine, swing, and fragrance.
Rs. 680 for 200 ml, now available for Rs. 775.
My Take on Forest Essentials Madurai Jasmine and Mogra Hair Cleanser:
You have to sniff this one to believe how awesome this smells! It’s strictly for floral fragrance lovers though – you know for the true jasmine and mogra lovers. I have never put flowers in my hair, but if this is how Madurai jasmine smells, I want to. This hair cleanser comes in a 200 ml bottle and the texture is thick and one can dilute it with water and then lather it up on wet hair. Just like the Bitter Orange variant, this shampoo too lathers well, but if you have oiled your hair heavily, it might not be able to take it all down in one rinse and double the quantity would be required to do so.
This shampoo claims to be a natural product with herbal extracts and free from parabens, sulphates, and petrochemicals. It’s all good and will benefit hair in the long run. However, it will not give you lustrous and gorgeous hair. It does add shine, but not volume or bounce. I feel my hair rather falls flat with Forest Essential shampoos. It’s helpful in taming frizzy hair and adding shine, but if you love bouncy hair, this will disappoint.
Quantity, I feel is not great because I think it’s getting over soon. Whenever I oil my hair, I need extra and the dilution trick doesn’t work here. When I was using this cleanser in December, my hair would get oily within two to three days and I needed to wash my hair again on the third or fourth day by which time my hair would get completely greasy.
Like Bitter Orange variant, this one too is a bounce killer, but I just love the fragrance of this one. The scent lingers in the hair for 1-1/2 to 2 days and it’s pretty relaxing. If you are into styling your hair, it’s better to use your regular shampoo that’s because it would make hair flat and you would not be able to get the desired volume. Another good thing about this shampoo is that it does not dry out the hair like the Bitter Orange variant.
Overall, this is an average shampoo that is free from parabens, sulphates, etc., and might benefit you in the long run, with a great fragrance and natural extracts. I would get this again, but that’s for the fragrance, will alternate it with my regular shampoos.
