Revlon Flex Body Building Protein Shampoo Review


I have been meaning to pick up this Revlon Flex shampoo.  I am having a bit of hair fall this season and I have been trying different shampoos, not necessarily anti-hair fall ones.  I have read somewhere that its good to keep switching shampoos.  I would always prefer SLES free ones, but they are hard to find, so I am doing my best to find better shampoos.  Here’s the review in detail.

Product Description:

This exclusive Flex formula is balanced for through yet gentle cleansing. So it gives dry/damaged hair more bounce, great body, beautiful shine. With Flex you get highly effective cleansing without stripping. Rinses away clean. Leaves hair feeling more supple, more manageable and looking radiantly healthy. Hair smells extra Flex fresh to gentle enough to use everyday.

Revlon Flex 1


Rs. 160 for 20 Fl. Oz.



My Take on Revlon Flex Body Building Protein Shampoo:

Its a huge bottle with a lot of shampoo.  The shampoo smells mildly of some toffee, but its not all that great.  Its a thick shampoo which lathers well in the hair.  This shampoo thoroughly cleanses the hair of oil and dirt, but after that, all I got was completely tangled hair.  I had a tough time combing through the mess.  This shampoo does not make the hair bouncy, shiny, voluminous, it only cleans the scalp thoroughly, that’s it.  Of course, it does make hair dry.

Revlon Flex 2

The only thing I am happy about is the amount I got, I can use this to wash  my brushes or other stuff.  All I can say is you can easily skip this shampoo, its no good.

Revlon Flex 3

Pros of Revlon Flex Body Building Protein Shampoo:

  • Its a huge bottle of shampoo.
  • Cleanses the scalp thoroughly.

Revlon Flex 4

Cons of Revlon Flex Body Building Protein Shampoo:

  • Causes a lot of tangles in the hair.
  • Does not give bouncy hair.
  • Does not give shiny hair.
  • Contains a lot of parabens and SLS.
  • Dries up the hair.

Will I Repurchase Revlon Flex Body Building Protein Shampoo?

Shajeela January 25, 2013 at 4:55 pm

V.True. I’ve curly dry hair and have tried this shampoo and i thought that it did not suit my hair type. I dont think this comes in smaller sizes. After the bad experience with this shampoo, i never buy things for trial which comes in big package.


jomol January 25, 2013 at 5:06 pm

Shajeela….oh….you too had a bad experience…..same pinch ….giggless

I just found the Revlon Flex Shampoo & Conditioner on eBay. I bought several, as I love the fragrance! I used this when in high school. Just nostalgic, I guess.
