Khadi Herbal Shikakai Shampoo Review

There is a huge variety of herbal shampoos available in Indian market. This time I picked up Shikakai herbal shampoo from Khadi. Today I am with my review on Khadi Herbal Shikakai shampoo. So let’s get started!

What Khadi Herbal says about Shikakai Shampoo

My Experience with Khadi Shikakai Herbal Shampoo:

Packaging: Khadi Shikakai Herbal Shampoo comes in standard Khadi transparent bottle. It has a flip cap at the top and the bottle is quite sturdy and leak proof. The best part of the packaging is a plastic insert under the lid. Thus, it is travel-friendly.
Texture: Texture is creamy but not so heavy.

Color: It is deep green in color.

Fragrance: It smells really refreshing and nice like herbs, which is very soothing and not at all overpowering. After shampoo the smell does not last longer on my hair.

The shampoo contains many herbs which sound very good like shikakai , mehendi, amla, tulsi and more such herbs. The main ingredient of this shampoo is Shikakai. Shikakai has very high vitamin C as well as vitamins A, D, E and K, antioxidants which are essential for healthy and rapid hair growth. 
 Mehendi is known to be a natural conditioner that makes hair soft and silky. Amla is an ingredient that gets used in all products that aim at prevention of hair fall. All these ingredients attract me a lot. My primary purpose in buying this was to reduce hair fall and provide shiny and softness to my hair.

The shampoo is very mild. The Shampoo spreads and lathers very well and also clean scalp very well. But I required a very good amount of product to wash my hair. After hair wash I felt that it’s unable to make my hair shiny and soft. This shampoo makes my hair drier and seems quite tangled. For people with dry hair like me it would not be sufficient to just use the shampoo, following up with a good conditioner.

Now coming to hair fall part, I am using this shampoo from last 2 months and I don’t think that there is any significant reduction in my hair fall problem. But one thinks I noticed that after shampooing I had a little less hair fall.
I Like that 
  • Natural and free of chemicals
  • It leaves the hair clean
  • Little bet reduces hair fall
  • Pocket friendly
  • It has a very nice pleasant fragrance
I don't like that
  • Found my hair more dry after each wash
  • Need to follow up with the conditioner to put the moisture back in the hair
  • Required a good amount of product for clean hair.
Do I Recommend?

Those who have dry and frizz hair they must think once.  

Would I Repurchase?

No, I will not buy this product again.

Overall: Khadi Shikakai Herbal Shampoo is an okay type shampoo. If you think that it will work as miracle on your hair then you are wrong. Anyway these shampoos are available at few Khadi counters around the city. You can also buy from online portals, and  Khadi’s own website.
