This is my first review, so I hope I am doing it right and hope all of you like it. I was in the search for a SLES and silicone-free shampoo since I was suffering from terrible hair fall. By the way, I started experiencing hair fall after using Biotique’s Bio Henna Shampoo, so stay away from that one!!
I am someone who uses a lot of chemicals and products in my hair and still had pretty good hair. Also, I keep experimenting with products too and that’s how I started using Biotique’s Bio Henna *shudder*. Anyhow, that’s when I came across an article about the harmful effects of SLS and silicone and decided to make the switch. I am in Kerala and thus couldn’t get Suave or Enliven products. Thus, began my search for SLS and silicone free shampoo. I purchased Khadi Herbal Honey and Almond Oil Shampoo from an online shopping site. I have been using it for the past 2 weeks and I absolutely love it!!!
Directions To Use:
Its actual cost is Rs. 95, but I got it at a discount! (Dirt cheap!!)
How does honey help hair?
Honey is a humectant and thus holds onto water molecules. It smoothens the cuticle and makes the hair soft and shiny.
How does almond oil help?
Almonds contain vitamin A, D, B1, B2 and B6, minerals like zinc, copper, manganese, iron and calcium, vitamin E and proteins. Do you need any more reasons??? These help in hair growth. It adds a sheen and shine to the hair. It is also good for hair loss, hair thinning and hair graying. Almond oil contains important fats and fatty acids that are good for your hair. The oil also acts as a cleansing agent and cleans away dust and pollutants. It also reduces scalp inflammation and helps get rid of dandruff.
My Experience with Khadi Herbal Honey and Almond Oil Shampoo:
It comes in a plastic bottle which is transparent and has a flip-open cap. Thus, it is easy to store and carry this oil during trips. The shampoo is clear and light pink in color. It has a very herbal smell (not unpleasant). It is sort of runny in nature and not thick like other shampoos. When I first saw this, I wasn’t happy, but after using it, I am ecstatic.
It lathers well and can be washed off easily. It cleans the scalp and hair effectively and makes it squeaky clean (literally!). It cleanses hair easily even after oiling hair. I use Fab India’s Sesame Oil and it is quite thick and difficult to rinse off, but Khadi shampoo cleanses it out really well.
I have been using this oil with VLCC Wheat Protein Conditioner (silicone free). My hair feels really soft and silky. So, I can’t tell whether it’s because of the shampoo or the conditioner.
Now, about my hair fall. My hair fall has reduced drastically! The hair on my brush and hair fall while washing my hair and oiling my hair has also reduced. I absolutely love this product!
Since I am in a silicone free phase, I have stopped using serums too. I simply take 2 drops of almond oil and apply that to the ends of my hair after towel drying my hair.
Pros of Khadi Herbal Honey and Almond Oil Shampoo:
- It is an herbal shampoo with the goodness of honey and almond oil.
- It is dirt cheap.
- SLS and silicone free.
- Cleanses scalp and hair effectively.
- Lathers well.
Cons of Khadi Herbal Honey and Almond Oil Shampoo:
- Just that the consistency being runny, you end up needing quite a bit of the product.
Awesome shampoo!! Go for it if you have hair fall and want to use SLS and silicone free product.
Would I Repurchase Khadi Herbal Honey and Almond Oil Shampoo?
Definitely yes, but I want to try out the other Khadi herbal shampoos too. I will be reviewing all of them soon. Thank you!
