I recently picked up the ‘Micellar Shampoo’ range from Nivea. Today’s review is all about Nivea Comforting Micellar Shampoo. Read on to know more about the shampoo.

My Experience with Nivea Comforting Micellar Shampoo:
The product comes in a transparent bottle. The bottle is squeezable and you can see the contents through the bottle. There is information on the bottle. The bottle comes unsealed. The cap is pink in color and can be opened as a screw cap and also has a press mechanism that opens the dispenser. You can easily squeeze the bottle to bring the shampoo out.
The bottle is very big and might not be a perfect choice for travelling but the quantity is a perfect buy for the price. The bottle would last around 4 months. The shampoo is clear and doesn’t have any dyes. It has a runny consistency and a gel-like texture. The smell is floral but it doesn’t last very long.
The product is mainly for sensitive scalp and fragile hair. The shampoo lathers very well and a little product is more than enough. This is due to the presence of SLS. The shampoo cleanses the hair well and makes it squeaky clean. The shampoo doesn’t cause any irritation and is very gentle. The product contains Eucerit and also aloe and they help to make the hair very soft and smooth.
After washing, this shampoo does make the hair smooth without any conditioner. But, if you use more shampoo than needed it does dry out the hair and sucks out the moisture. I notice this when I use thick oils like castor oil as it really needs two times wash to remove the oil. So, when I shampoo my hair twice it leaves my hair very dry and I am not so fond of it.
The presence of micelles is like a magnet and helps in removing any oil or dirt from the scalp and hair. The product controls oil for around 2 days, and since I have oily hair, this helps a little. The product doesn’t help in controlling any frizz. The shampoo makes the hair look fresh. The product also adds a little shine to the hair.
The product also adds a little boost to the hair and creates a gentle lift. The product doesn’t contain any silicones or parabens, which is great. The product is not a must-buy as I feel it is a little drying for my hair and I feel that it kind of sucks moisture from my dry ends. Overall, I might not be repurchasing the product again, but if you have normal sensitive hair, you could give this a try.
So, summing up:
