It comes in nice sturdy orange colored cylindrical bottle with a flip cap. The cap is quite tight, hence its travel friendly.
My take on this product:
- The shampoo is white is color and is not at all thick; it can drip from the sides of your palm if palm is tilted. It has a mild citrusy fragrance; I think it’s of guava.
- I have used entire bottle of this shampoo and I can say, that it’s true to its claims. I don’t know how it’s going to work on chemically straightened hair, but it definitely works very well for my hair. It cleans my hair in a single wash and removes oil completely. My hair feel very soft and smooth after wash. It lathers very well. Hair are quite moisturized after wash. It tames my frizzy hair, but at at the same time doesn’t leave my hair greasy or oily. My hair do seem straight later. My mom always had the problem that her hair would become rough after washing. But, now her problem is solved. She loves this shampoo. It reduces hair fall as well. The texture of my hair has improved with time. I have used it once with conditioner from the same range and I can say that, it improves the texture even more and benefits more. The fragrance of guava doesn’t linger for long after wash. This might be problem for people who love to use perfumed shampoos.
- The entire bottle lasts for long. It’s available in a bigger packing as well.
