The shampoo comes in an opaque white container with orange touches. The bottle holds a capacity of 250ml.
This shampoo is designed for dry and sensitized hair.
The shampoo has a very strong citrusy scent that can be a bit overpowering and not always pleasant.
It has a thick creamy consistency that is not extremely easy to lather.
To use the shampoo, we simply massaged it into wet hair making sure the product spread on all the hair and rinsed thoroughly to ensure all the product is rinsed off.
Upon using the shampoo, we found it to be gentle on the hair because of its rich creamy-like texture but the non-foaming attribute made it a little difficult to lather and incorporate on a full head of hair (despite increasing the quantity used).
The amount to use depends on hair length: the shorter and/or thinner the hair, the less quantity needed. It rinsed out easily and one passage was enough to ensure that no residual amount is left on the hair and scalp. The shampoo was used 3-4 times a week over a period of 3 weeks.
After the first two washes, the hair instantly felt clean, refreshed and nourished. Even if the shampoo isn’t very lathery, it does a good job in cleaning the scalp and making the hair feel smooth. It also ensures perfect moisturization of the skin and hair, leaving it bouncy and shiny.
For someone who has curly hair, the shampoo works wonders in smoothing out the frizz and keeping the hair moisturized throughout the day. It targets dry hair symptoms at the core.
Other benefits of this shampoo include the silicone derivatives and glucose proteins that smooth the hair fiber and replenishes it from root to tips, leaving the locks super soft and supple. The formula also reflects light and boosts shine.
