As promised, I am back with the review of another OS shampoo, which is the Shine boost shampoo. I wanted to try out a different variety in OS and hence this.
For Normal Hair:
Shine Boost Shampoo washes away the dirt, impurities and styling product residues that dull your hair. Citrus oils promote shine while natural moisturisers help to smooth and gloss the hair’s surface. Shine boost shampoo gently cleanses and nourishes, leaving your hair feeling soft and healthy with a brilliant, natural shine. Organic Surge shampoo is free from harsh foaming agents that strip hair of its natural oils and can cause scalp irritation. Enjoy the lightweight lather created by naturally-derived ingredients.

My experience with Organic Surge Shine Boost Shampoo:
I really like the packaging of OS shampoos. The transparent tube packaging is a great idea. Plus I feel it looks prettier and kind of non-conventional, as most shampoos we try come in bottles. Moving on, the consistency of the shampoo is kind of thin and watery. It is a clear liquid and has a very mild fragrance of essential oils. I would point out the smell of grapefruit and lemon on the higher side. You need to slather it on to your scalp as soon as you take it out of the tube or else it would flow out of your palm.
Now this shampoo lathers really well. We don’t expect organic shampoos to lather so much but this one does! As I reviewed about the blonde boost shampoo, you need only a moderate amount of the product for single usage and this tube should last a pretty long time.
It cleanses the hair and scalp well. I would give a special mention to the fact that, if you have oil in your hair, this does not need a second wash. It removes the oil effectively. Even if you use it on un-oiled hair, it won’t really dry out your hair. I find this is a really great quality.
Now it does impart some shine to hair, but hey! I wasn’t looking for a shampoo to make my hair mirror shiny. Also I find this does not tangle up you hair like some shampoos do. So yes, I have thoroughly enjoyed using this shampoo and it did a great job considering it an organic shampoo. This tube lasted me for 2 months and I wash my hair every alternate day.
Pros of Organic Surge Shine Boost Shampoo:
1. Thoughtful packaging.
2. Organic shampoo free of harsh chemicals.
3. You may use this without oiling your hair as it already contains essential oils and thus wont dry out your hair.
4. Lathers amazingly well.
5. Detangles hair and provides shine to some extent.
6. Does not weigh down your hair at all.
7. Leaves your hair squeaky clean without over drying.
8. Widely available online and in beauty stores.
Cons of Organic Surge Shine Boost Shampoo:
1. May not suit very dry hair as it does contain lemons in it.
2. May be on the pricey side.
