Hair type: thin, wavy, dry and frizzy
I was searching for sulphate-free shampoos. So, I decided to try one from khadi. Hence, I picked up this Khadi Saffron, Tulsi & Reetha Herbal Shampoo some months back. I noticed recently that I have not reviewed it yet. So, here is the review for you all.
Price and Quantity: INR 115 for 210ml
My Experience with Khadi Saffron, Tulsi and Reetha Herbal Shampoo:
The shampoo comes in a regular Khadi packaging. The clear cylindrical plastic bottle has a black coloured flip cap. The cap shuts tightly making a click sound, and it also makes this bottle fit for travel purposes. There are no chances of the product getting spilled by accident. The transparent bottle helps to see the amount of the product left in the bottle. The bottle bears two labels indicating all necessary product details. Overall, the packaging is quite sturdy and travel-friendly, but not fancy. Inside the clear bottle comes a clear yellowish liquid, which looks quite nice from outside. The shampoo has a strong, herbal kind of fragrance, which is not very refreshing. Personally, I am not a fan of such kind of fragrances. The strong smell is surely a little bothering for those sensitive noses.
The consistency of the shampoo is on a runnier side. So, there are chances of the product getting spilled. The shampoo spreads evenly onto the hair, and that too very easily. It lathers pretty well. A little amount is good enough to work on my short hair. But, a good amount is required on heavily oiled hair. It effectively removes all the oil from the hair in one wash. It cleanses my hair and scalp very well. It removes every bit of dirt and grease from my hair easily. I used this shampoo twice without any conditioner to know how it works exactly. And, my experiences were not good. It made my hair so rough and dry. It really took so long to detangle my hair, hence I faced hair breakage and hair fall.
My hair felt so rough like a broom. When my hair dried, it looked horrible. It really got difficult to detangle my hair and I needed a hair serum instantly to make my hair manageable. Though my hair looked lustrous but it wasn’t silky at all. My hair got so frizzy and dry after wash. The shampoo claims to be effective on dry and dull hair. But it did not work for my dry hair. It even made my hair drier. Though there is no significant hair fall issues after using this shampoo, it still did not work for me. I definitely need to follow up with a conditioner to keep my hair soft and smooth otherwise this shampoo can cause dryness and breakage. Overall, this shampoo did not work for me.
