The shampoo comes in a plastic transparent bottle with a green flip open cap. The packaging is pretty basic except that the cap is very difficult to open especially with wet hands and long nails. I’ve chipped my nails quite a few times!
Coming onto the shampoo, it is a light-green colored product with a watery consistency. I can’t really pinpoint what fragrance it has but it is quite pleasant and mild. The shampoo lathers a tad bit less than the average shampoos but it’s nothing major. It manages to clean the scalp nicely although it isn’t that squeaky clean feeling I was expecting when I bought this shampoo. In retrospect, I guess it is justified considering it an everyday shampoo and can’t be very harsh. As for its effect on the hair, I don’t find it any more drying than the other balancing shampoos but it doesn’t seem to do much for the hair. There is no enhanced weightlessness or shine to the hair, the kind you’d expect from using a balancing shampoo. But the good point is that it doesn’t cause any extra hairfall. Since it’s a mild every day shampoo, you need quite a lot of it if you have some residue in your hair. For this reason, the shampoo tends to finish much quicker than the other regular shampoos.
What I Like About The Product
1. It can be used everyday
2. Cleans the scalp decently
3. Has a nice fragrance
4. Does not cause any extra hairfall
What I Don’t Like About The Product
1. The results are pretty average. The scalp is cleaned only moderately and it doesn’t seem to do much for the hair.
2. The cap of the bottle is very very hard to open sometimes
3. Being mild, you tend to use a lot more quantity of the product. As a result, it tends to finish quicker.
All in all, I feel it is an average performing shampoo. Due to my fitness regime, I need to wash my hair almost on an everyday basis and this does tend to do a decent job at it. But as I said, there is nothing that would wanna make you choose this shampoo over others. I’m not saying its bad but you shouldn’t expect it to blow you away. With that steep a price, the low longevity of the product and its average performance (and not to mention the awful cap!), I don’t think I’ll pick this up again .Try it if you must, just don’t expect a lot from it!
