Patanjali Kesh Kanti Anti-Dandruff Hair Cleanser Review

Baba Ramdev’s products have been my favourite since long. I love how effective they are even being natural.  Very few “natural” products suit me, but Patanjali products have always suited me well. Well, except this one!  When I saw this at a medical store, I was glad that Patanjali had brought an anti-dandruff shampoo in market.  I picked this up instantly and had high hopes from it.

My Take on Patanjali Kesh Kanti Anti-Dandruff Hair Cleanser:

Let me tell you how it fares, this is not a great shampoo to say the least.  I use anti-dandruff shampoo weekly to keep dandruff at bay, and most of the shampoos I have used in the past for this purpose gave me great results, but this never cleans my scalp well. You know the feeling when you wash your hair, but your scalp tries to tell you that there is still something left and it is not yet clean. I have somehow managed to finish a bit of this, but I did not like this shampoo a bit.  This leaves some nasty residue on my scalp even if I wash this thoroughly.  My mom used it too and she had the same feedback.  When I used this shampoo for the first time, I skipped the conditioner to see how it works for my hair, but this was great! Even without a conditioner, my hair was not very dry but yes my scalp was itchy and I had to curb my urge to re-wash my hair the same day. The oils are good for the hair but not for the scalp.

I have used the milk protein version by reading the IMBB review and it was great. I thought this one would be great too, but sadly, it does not live up to its claim.

Pros of Patanjali Kesh Kanti Anti-Dandruff Hair Cleanser:

  • Indian brand.
  • Ingredients list is impressive.
  • Affordable.
  • Can skip the conditioner if you do not have very dry hair.

Cons of Patanjali Kesh Kanti Anti-Dandruff Hair Cleanser:

  • It does not clean the scalp well.
  • Is not very effective on dandruff too.

I have an oily scalp and my mom has a dry scalp and this shampoo did not fare well for both of us. We both had the same complaint that this made our scalp a bit itchy. I think the oils in this were the reason behind this.  Usually, I use my bad shampoos to wash the makeup brushes but the ‘oils’ in this scared me off and I am thinking of ways to finish this, I do not want my makeup brushes to be sticky.
