Biotique is a re owned brand in India producing herbal products ranging from skincare to cosmetics. This brand was quite unknown to me until I bought this shampoo under the peer pressure of a SA at the Spencer’s Mart. I was just browsing through the shampoo range and was determined to try out a new shampoo to get a break from Dove, my regular one.
The SA there insisted I use this shampoo, I tried to avoid but she kept on saying this would be good for hair etc. Well to begin with I have a bit of an oily scalp with healthy hair. My fiancee was impressed easily by her sales techniques and I had to take this shampoo after all.
Rs.159 for 210 ml; Rs.99 for 120 ml
My Take on the Product:
Well if you are impressed by their claims I am sorry to disagree with you.
I am blessed with good hair. Hence I have been a person with normal fuss free hair, I never have tangles or dandruff at such, very less hair fall and rough hair is a concept I was unaware of till using this.
Unlike its claim of providing shine it does not fulfill it; it takes away all the natural oils and shine and leaves my hair feeling like hay. I felt like crying after my first use to see the after effects. I generally don’t use conditioner as I hardly felt the need for one but using this shampoo one will definitely need a conditioner.
It has a strong smell like those Clinic Plus Shampoos and looks like a bluish green gel . The packaging is something I have to complain about. Though it’s plastic and easy to carry and store I feel very problematic while using it with wet hands in the shower. The large opening leaves me with no choice but to keep an eye out for product wastage. I have wasted quite a lot due to the packaging.
Coming to the results, I have not seen any growth results till now and actually speaking I hate this shampoo. I don’t like it’s detergent like smell; I hate it how it takes away all moisture from hair leaving it super dry also I hate the packaging.

Do I Recommend?:
Nope, I am not going to . But if you have super oily or greasy hair you might get some benefit from it. Otherwise steer clear of this product.
Would I Repurchase?:
Nope , Never!!!! I am happy with Tresemme and Dove. I just am trying to avoid wastage and after this one gets over I’ll never go near the shampoo department of Biotique again.
