Syoss Volume & Lift shampoo and conditioner duo are aimed at giving voluminous appearance to hair while being nourishing yet light. The shampoo cleanses without drying out the scalp/hair and is silicone free. The conditioner nourishes the hair without weighing it down. The combination is quite effective, with visible results right from the first wash. The only downside is the fragrance, which reminds one of cough syrup. Thankfully, it doesn’t linger on after the wash! A good product worth the price and quantity i.e INR 1400 for the duo of 500ml bottles.
Attempts to induce gloss into my mane continue, and in this quest, my next encounter is the Schwarzkopf Gliss Million Gloss Shampoo with liquid keratin. This unmissable glitzy bottle caught my eye and since my hair was lacking the glitz factor, attributable to the schizophrenic weather I have been subject to lately, I decided to give it a shot.
The light consistency paired with the refreshing hit of aqua is possibly the antidote to the grimy, and polluted monsoons of this age. It is a very mild shampoo and if your hair is thick or if it has been oiled, you might need to use it more than once or twice to effectively cleanse the scalp and hair. That being said, it makes for the perfect daily shampoo. My hair isn’t very shiny after having used this shampoo but it isn’t too harsh on my hair either.
I definitely expected a lot more from this product, but I’m giving it the benefit of doubt because of the schizo weather and I’m willing to offer it a second shot. Or may be I am being biased towards glitzzz…….
Despite being utterly oblivious to the influx of organic/sulphate free/paraben free products in the market, the sudden flurry of news articles about traces of heavy metals in our daily food items and cosmetics, have given me the necessary push to make a shift to safe cosmetics (to the extent possible). I decided to make a start with shampoo. This choice was mainly because, over the years my hair had become the recipient of unwarranted chemical treatments, exposure to harsh pollutants and sunlight, which has surely done a number on it. Living in the most polluted city in the world showed its effects after only a few months when my naturally straight, soft hair became unruly, rebellious, dry and unmanageable. Since my hair was thin lately, I decided to try the Organix Biotin and Collagen thickening shampoo.
I’m not entirely sure how effective biotin and collagen can be when applied externally for such a short duration of time, but the shampoo was mild, effective and definitely left my otherwise fine hair with a lot of bounce. It has a mild fragrance and is gentle enough to be used everyday yet manages to cleanse the oils/masks from the hair effectively. The packaging is adorable, especially since the shampoo is a fainter shade of the bottle colour itself.
The price (Rs. 725/- for a 385 ml bottle) is affordable for the quantity provided. It is a definite repurchase for me( I have already got my mom hooked on to it as well)
