Biotique Bio Henna Leaf Shampoo Review

Biotique is a pro nature brand encompassing ranges of beauty potions from skincare to make-up. The entry into make-up cosmetics domain is quite recent though. Bioqtiue, has had a sweet sour relationship with me, as in, some products just conjured up magic for me, while some let me down miserably.

I am reviewing the Henna Leaf Shampoo from biotique, the only shampoo from this brand which works magic on my tresses. To mention, I have tried their walnut bark and neem shampoo and they did not live up to my expectations.


The Look : A light reddish brown gel like appearance, with a runny consistency .

The Smell: Very much herbal or ayurvedic sort of 🙂

My Take: The shampoo lathers luxuriantly, and yet maintains moisture balance on my normal hair. It cleans exuberantly and leaves a lingering herbal smell.  Also, it highlights the hair with a burgundy tinge and even covers grey hair with a reddish hennalike hue. I  love this shampoo for this very fact, as it painlessly imparts a henna tinge to my hair, without the hardwork. Also, it reduces product build up, cleans the hair of dirt and grime, to some extent works on dandruff too. It did not cause any adverse reactions on my hair.

But, I have a warning as it might dehydrate dry hair and it is better that people with dry hair stay away from it.

Summary : A great shampoo for normal to oily hair 🙂 that colors, cleans and conditions in one go. Not recommended for dry hair.

Product Score: 4/5

Price: 180 for 200 ml, also available online.

How To Select The Right Color For Your Hair

Hair coloring is a rage nowadays, with many of us choosing to color our hair in a variety of shades, be it subtle highlights or complete hair color. It does change one looks from the usual monotonous self and refurbishes our whole persona. Though it make us look and feel gorgeous, we have to keep certain points in mind before selecting the hair color. The perfect color selection is the secret behind gorgeous celebrity hair colors :).

Some points which I would mention here are :

  1.  It is not advised to opt for a shade which is way to different from ones own natural hair color. The difference between the natural hair color and the selected one should be subtle and not drastic. The change needs to be gradual, may be one tone light or dark from one own natural hair color.
  2. The skin tone is the most important deciding factor while choosing the shade,  it needs to be kept in mind always . Indians are mostly warm complexioned, colors such as browns, auburn browns, deep caramel etc flatter our skin tones.
  3. Never use Henna on colored hair, Henna lends its own color to the hair and makes it look garish. Also one need to grow out the whole hair strands before  recoloring, as the new color would not manifest properly.
  4. when choosing colors to highlight our hair, its always better to choose a color which is four shades lighter than the rest of the hair color.

Hope you find these helpful :), also drop in your additions to this article 🙂
