Hi guys, this is going to be a quick post about my experience with Khadi Herbal hair products. This is my first experience with Khadi products, the SLS and paraben free tag is what tempted me to try it. Note that not all Khadi products are 100% herbal, they are loaded with lots of chemicals.
My biggest hair concerns are dry hair and split ends, hair fall is there too but not priority for now. We all know what causes split ends, in my attempt to reduce chemical exposure to hair I picked up Khadi Herbal Amla & Bhringraj Shampoo. It claims ‘The extracts of Amla, Reetha, Bhringraj, Haritaki, Henna and Neem contained in this shampoo makes the hair lustrous, healthy and manageable.‘ And Khadi Herbal Green Tea & Aloevera Hair Conditioner the description for this on website is incomplete, mainly I picked this for dry hair tag.
I’ve been using this pair for one month, conditioner is already over while quarter bottle of shampoo is still left . Khadi Herbal Amla & Bhringraj Shampoo is purple in color and smells like herbs, it leathers well (though there is no SLS, I wonder what other sulphate goes in), small quantity is enough for cleansing. It makes hair too dry, conditioner must follow after shampoo. I do not see any benefit for using this shampoo, especially if you have dry hair; hair doesn’t shine, they are not manageable after shampoo due to dryness, and they sure did not get any healthy.
Khadi Herbal Green Tea & Aloevera Hair Conditioner doesn’t have intense smell, shampoo smell overpowers even after conditioning. A lot of product is required to decently cover hair with conditioner, which is the reason my shampoo is still left while conditioner was over. Even after applying a lot of conditioner the dryness caused by Khadi Herbal Amla & Bhringraj Shampoo doesn’t go. Hair feel dry and frizzy as if no conditioner was used. Maybe cause the shampoo makes hair too dry, the ‘for dry hair’ tag on is conditioner is totally misleading as it doesn’t give hair any moisture back.
The ingredients list is incomplete as one can see on back of bottle only key ingredients are listed. The packaging is another turn down, but if the products would have worked well this has not mattered.
I ordered my products from http://www.khadinatural.com, the site has been recently revamped the older version of site even had malware(thanks to my anti-virus). The price is a bit on higher side, and free shipping is only available on orders above Rs. 500. SLS and pareben free hair products are priced at Rs. 210, you can get the same product at cheaper price of Rs. 115 added with SLS and paraben 😉
I will not dare to use Khadi Herbal Amla & Bhringraj Shampoo and Green Tea & Aloevera Conditioner ever again and warn anyone with dry hair to stay away from these. Although in my attempt to stay away from chemicals Khadi is the best I can get in India, hence I am going to order Khadi Herbal Henaa Tulsi extra conditioning Shampoo and Khadi Shikakai & honey Hair Conditioner of-course the SLS & Paraben Free versions 😉
Have you tried any Khadi products, how is your experience with them? What SLS free products would you recommend for dry hair (available in India).
