Now I will be reviewing the Sandalwood Hair Cleanser Cum Conditioner from The Nature’s co, one of my very favorite brand of natural products. This is one among the products from their Earthborne range which I have never tried before. TNC products always work great on my skin and hair and this one is no different. I have been waiting for months to grab a ‘Shampoo cum Conditioner’ to manage my frizzy hair. No! My hair is not always frizzy or unmanageable but it behaves strange in monsoons. In this irregular weather change, I wanted to use my conditioner after cleansing it with my hair cream to make my hair stay manageable and free from split ends. This is okay for me but not ‘every time’ of course (Being a super lazy girl). So when I grabbed this Shampoo Cum Conditioner in my hand, that too from my favorite brand I was super excited to try it out. And sandalwood on hair? I have never used sandalwood products on my hair till now so I was also curious to know how it would work. I have been using this product for past few days now and let my review show you all my experience with this product. Go ahead and read below!
Price and Quantity: Rs.895 for 250ml
Shelf life: 17 months approx.
Packaging: This shampoo is packed in a square top, rectangular shaped transparent plastic bottle with a dark brown sturdy flip type cap. Most of the The Nature’s Co products such as the shower gels, body lotions and hair cleansers come in a similar kind of packaging. But somehow, I am liking this kinda packaging a lot. This is a very travel friendly product as it is sturdy and fits anywhere easily in my luggage. There is no leakage or spillage. Even though I have dropped the bottle 2-3 times still now :P it doesn’t seem to crack or leak. A small pamphlet which is carrying the ingredient benefits of the product is tied on the neck of this shampoo bottle; and it looks absolutely natural. (Sorry :P I have missed that tiny pamphlet somewhere!)
Color, Consistency & Fragrance: I expected this shampoo to be thick and creamy as it claims to be formulated for dry and damaged hair but surprisingly it has a very thin and runny consistency. The shampoo is light beige in color and has a wonderful mild sandalwood fragrance. It is not that ‘scented sandalwood’ fragrance which many local toilet soaps carry but a pure, divine sandalwood fragrance that would be even soothing for sensitive noses.
How it works: To be frank, I was a little disappointed at first when I observed the consistency of this shampoo. It is thin and runny. I thought that only heavy, creamy conditioners and masques would help dry hair to be manageable but this shampoo proved me wrong :) This shampoo lathers excellently and washes out without leaving any residue on my scalp. I did not use a separate conditioner after shampooing my hair as this is itself a shampoo cum conditioner. I had a relaxing bathing experience with its very natural sandalwood fragrance. And after I blow dried my hair, Whoa! It has turned really smooth and manageable. As claimed, this shampoo gave me a lustrous, soft and manageable hair. More than the softness, my hair looked very shiny and healthy. I have used many shampoos and conditioner till now, but this shampoo gave me ultimate effects without even using a separate conditioner. The result I got with this shampoo is definitely greater than the results I got when I used some other shampoo with its conditioner in the past. I am a regular shampoo (homemade shampoo cream using shikakai) user and hence this would really prevent my hair becoming dry :) I am impressed of this shampoo very much and this is now my holy grail shampoo too. I use it on the days I feel lazy to prepare the hair wash cream.The fragrance lasts on my hair for a long time and my hair did not turn limp the next day of hair wash too. This is a miracle branded shampoo I have ever came across and I am totally in love with it now! This shampoo will suit every hair type in my guess.
- Neat, easy to use and travel friendly packaging
- Cleanses out hair and scalp very well without leaving any residue behind
- Lathers very well and get rinsed out quickly
- My hair feels soft after using this shampoo every time
- There is no need to use a conditioner separately
- It gave my hair an glossy shine which I loved the most!
- Smells divine; it has a pure sandalwood smell
- It doesn’t leave hair dry or limp, but perfectly shiny, soft and clean
- This shampoo is suitable for all hair types
- SLS free and paraben free
- A single bottle will last for 1 and half months with daily usage
- I said that it has become my Holy Grail shampoo now; hence I have no big con to mention. However the price is a bit steep. But when comparing to the results, I do not really mind the price for a natural, really working SLS free and paraben free hair cleanser cum conditioner.
Makeup and Beauty Home Rating: 5/5
Recommendation: Grab one for sure if you don’t mind the price! You can skip your conditioner but still can have a frizz free, flying hair with this shampoo. This hair cleanser might become your HG one too.
Would I Repurchase?: No doubt! I am picking it all the time to keep it as a travel spare. On the days I cannot prepare my hair wash cream, I will be using this only. This is an excellent Shampoo cum Conditioner for lazy girls like me :P
