I am trying a Sunsilk shampoo after a long time actually and it makes me nostalgic of my childhood days, when we always had the black Sunsilk perched on our bathroom rack. I saw the bottle undergoing many changes, leaving me awestruck every time with its new form 🙂 . Recently, it was sent to me for review and I am more than happy to try it.
The Look : The shampoo has a runny consistency, and has a glistening shine to it and the conditioner is moderately thick in consistency. Both of them are pale powder green in color.
The Smell: Very fresh and energizing yet not over powering. I am loving it 🙂
Product Claims: It is claimed to have natural ingredients free of parabens, also infused with Ginseng Root extracts for added volume and hair growth. It is a co-creation of Sunsilk with Jamal Hammadi, who is a natural haircare expert.
My Take on the Shampoo: It lathers luxuriantly, unless you have hard water, which minimizes the lathering effect. The water in my area is soft and has very low mineral content due to which I experienced a great cleansing experience with it. One of my friends lives in a area, where the water is mostly hard due to the frequency of water tankers there, She also tried this shampoo and feels it did not lather as expected. After usage, the hair looks voluminous and bouncy, which is a great factor for people with thin hair, as it would definitely add to the volume. Overall a decent shampoo 🙂 . I cannot comment on whether it arrests hair fall or aides hair growth, as I have used it for a short period of time. I feel it would be a great shampoo for normal to oily hair as it cleans thorough and dry hair might feel drier after its usage.
My Take on the Conditioner: It is moderately thick in consistency and effectively de-tangles the hair. The hair becomes more manageable and tangle free after its usage. Overall a decent conditioner for normal to oily hair types. It may not be that hydrating on dry hair.
