My Experience with Proganix Smooth Shampoo Smoothing + Hydration:
The Proganix Smooth Smoothing+Hydration shampoo comes in a huge bright colored tube which has all the details printed in equation which definitely gives an interesting look to the tube. The packing was the reason that I picked up this shampoo. Also the smoothing and hydrating claims attracted my dry and dull hair. The tube is huge and cap shuts tightly. Keratin is naturally found in our hair, so I thought adding a bit more of keratin is definitely good for hair.
Though it is free from SLS/SLES, the shampoo lathers very well which is due to the presence of Ammonium Lauryl Sulfate (ALS) which is also a foaming agent. This is very deceiving and I do feel that the company is cheating the customers by advertising it as a SLS-free shampoo since they have added ALS which is similar to SLS.
The shampoo is very thick and creamy and smells wonderful. I totally love the sweet berry fragrance. The scent is not very fruity though. But the fragrance doesn’t stay after shower. But yes, you can still smell a little bit of it when you grab your hair and take a sniff.
Now coming to the claims, Proganix is this new line from OGX (formerly Organix) and we know that OGX shampoos are raved and loved by many. This shampoo too makes claims of making hair smooth and hydrated, but I do not feel any difference in my hair. 🙁 In fact my hair looks and feels more dry and parched. So much so that even conditioner and serum doesn’t seem to be of much help. Also, dandruff has come back and I lose so much hair while washing them that I feel that I’ll turn bald in some time. 🙁 It takes two washes for clearing oil but a single wash is enough if your hair are not oiled. And, it makes my scalp so oily that I need to use dry shampoo, on the second day, without fail. Also, my hair has lost the little bit of shine it had 🙁 Initially, I thought that I might be using more quantity than needed, but when I reduced the quantity, it didn’t clean my hair properly.
Pros of Proganix Smooth Shampoo Smoothing + Hydration:
- Smells great.
- Lathers well.
- Comes with Acai berry and hydra keratin.
- SLS/SLES free.
Cons of Proganix Smooth Shampoo Smoothing + Hydration:
- Made my hair drier than usual.
- My hair has lost all the sheen.
- Dandruff has come back.
- Contains Ammonium Lauryl Sulphate.
- I lose too much hair while washing.
- Makes my scalp oily just next day.
Would I Repurchase/Recommend Proganix Smooth Shampoo Smoothing + Hydration?
I purchased this after reading awesome reviews about the shampoo online, but this didn’t work at all for me. 🙁 But it depends on an individual’s hair and scalp type, so you may try it out.
