I am back after a short break with a product review for dry, frizzy and flyaway hair. 2 months in Hong Kong and I was worried that my hair is going out of control, thanks to the unpredictable weather here. I was on a hunt for a good moisturizing shampoo, a brand that would be reliable and worth trying. Endlessly strolling through the departmental store, I zeroed down on the “Vidal Sassoon Moisturizing Treatment Repair Shampoo” with the matching hair conditioner in desperate hope of restoring my hair to its natural self.
Packaging: The shampoo comes in a maroon bottle of 750 ml with push pump that is easy to use. The packaging is pretty simple with the name of the product at the front and ingredients at the back. The only concern with the packaging is the fact that you can’t really see how much of it is actually left. The bottle has a shelf life of 3 years and is decently priced at HKD 80, which is roughly INR 650.
The Vidal Sassoon Moisturizing Treatment Repair Shampoo is a cleansing shampoo for dry hair. With moisture sealing oil the shampoo helps seal in moisture to quench your hair’s thirst. Perfected by experts this rich moisturizing shampoo helps prevent dry or damaged hair leaving it soft and silky, smooth, shiny and strong against damage.
My Experience with Vidal Sassoon Moisturizing Treatment Repair Shampoo:
Before going into the feel of the shampoo, it is important that I let you guys know that I have chemically treated my hair, and because of my hectic schedule, constant travelling and irregular care regime, my tresses have lost their health and have become dull and dry. This shampoo was a random trial to replenish the moisture back and I was keen on buying this shampoo more because, the name said it’s a treatment repair shampoo. This shampoo is thick textured and creamy in consistency. It is bright white in color with a very pleasant smell that lingers over 2 days after a wash. Yes, I am not exaggerating; the hair smells great even in humid summers. The shampoo perfectly does what it is supposed to do, cleanses the hair squeaky clean while moisturizing the scalp. No buildups, no greasy feeling, just perfect salon washed hair.
A few dabs from the bottle and my long hair gets totally covered into creamy froth, hence I don’t really need a second wash. It adds smoothness and control to the hair, the scalp is clean, adds shine to the hair, but takes away some of the volume, simply because a moisturizing shampoo does weigh down the frizz and dryness thereby reducing the volume a bit, but not too much. So currently, I am happy with the performance of the shampoo along with its matching conditioner, which I have reviewed here. The bottle weighs 750 ml, so quite a lot of it to last me for good 3-4 months. The shampoo is my absolute current favorite for the summers.
