Today, I will be reviewing my latest favorite shampoo from Toni&Guy called the “Detox Shampoo.” I was a Dove loyalist since a long time, but then, I started noticing that my hair became limp on the second day of washing itself and by the third day, it would look a bit greasy too, forcing me to wash my hair twice a week. Now, I know that we are supposed to wash twice a week, but I am just too lazy and on weekdays, it takes 17 minutes more (yeah, I work at clockwork precision on weekday mornings where literally every minute counts :P). Then, I read Samantha’s article about ingredients of shampoos and figured out that maybe the new Dove formulation has more silicones and that was making my hair limp with all the buildup.
Then, started an expedition to find SLS and silicone-free products. I found them in “The Body Shop” range and was quite smug that now I was going to have that “swish from side to side bouncy hair” and a gentle breeze will blow them across my face and my boyfriend will be so enchanted that he will pop the question :P, but nothing of that sort happened and then I realized that maybe there was a scheming villain lurking in the dark making it impossible for the lovers to meet and through sheer Sherlock-like genius deduction, I concluded that it was the infamous “buildup” of the “anti-awesome-hair gang” that was the cause of the trouble. Hence, I started another expedition to eradicate the troublemaker. I was in for luck as on my first trip to Health&Glow, I spotted this potential weapon of mass destruction. The word “detox” was enough for me to start day dreaming again 😛 and I am so glad it has lived up to its expectations.\
It is an awesome shampoo which I am using in conjunction with the “Rain Forest” range of TBS; as in, I use this once in two weeks and I am loving the texture of my hair. After the first wash itself, I could make out that it is working as my hair was super smooth and bouncy. The best part is that I can oil my hair with grease if I want (use castor oil sometimes ) and it would remove all traces of it and that too (hold your breath) without making my hair dry. Initially, I was a bit apprehensive that it might dry out my hair too much as it sounded harsh, but thankfully, it did not. I use the same “Rain Forest” conditioner after washing with this shampoo and the effect is better than that with the TBS shampoo, but I thought using it regularly might damage the hair as it does have SLS and hence I use it only once in two weeks.
It comes in a cute and sturdy cylindrical plastic bottle. The opening of the bottle is a bit wide and one has to be careful while pouring out the shampoo. The shampoo is clear and has a slightly strong fragrance, but the fragrance does not last at all, so no need to worry about smelling weird.
Rs. 200/- for 75 ml

Pros of Toni & Guy Detox Shampoo:
- Truly detoxifying, removes all product buildup (I could make out from the fact that my hair was not going limp and dull and also from the texture of my hair).
- Does not dry out hair.
- Easily available in Health&Glow and at many online websites.
Cons of Toni & Guy Detox Shampoo:
- The price is high for the quantity (I finished half the bottle in six washes, the bottle is quite tiny and I use it by diluting it in a little water).
4.5/5 (its my favorite now).
Will I Buy Toni & Guy Detox Shampoo Review Again?
On a funny note, I found this insanely bad metaphor while browsing:
“Her hair glistened in the rain like nose hair after a sneeze.” LOL!
Hope we all have “glistening” hair after using this shampoo 😛
