The best smelling shampoo ever! Just Herbs - Product Review

 I am someone who experiments with different shampoos and conditioners, after all, there are soooooooo many options to choose from! My hair are wavy in texture and very thin and scalp is a combination of dry/oily. Oh, I did face major hair-fall issues in the beginning of the lockdown, for which I cut my hair short and got a Olaplex treatment done- which has given me visible results and reduction on hairfall.

I received Just Herb's 8 in 1 shampoo and Kumuda silicon free conditioner for reviewing, and this review is being written after using the duo 4-5 times.

I am a sucker for ayurvedic, non-chemical, safe on skin/hair products. I used to expose my hair to harsh chemicals a lot during college days - with regular highlights and colouring, blow dries and straightening/smoothening treatments - which then looked dapper, but obvious on the long term led to damaged, weak, thin and breaking hair. So in my 30's I decided to say goodbye to all chemical treatments and products.

8 in 1 Root Nourishing Amla Neem Shampoo

About the product:
Give your hair the near-magical benefits of Amla, Neem, Hibiscus, Henna, Vetiver (Khus), Methi (Trigonella) Seed, Wheatgerm Oil and Soy through one herbal shampoo. Our gentle yet effective, 8 in 1 Root Nourishing Amla Neem Shampoo is specially formulated to nurture and strengthen hair roots and control excessive hair fall without stripping your hair off its natural oils.

Rs.625 for 200ml bottle.

My take:
I absolutely love how this shampoo smells! Trust me, it smells so nice, I wish I could eat it! The fragrance lingers for hours after using the shampoo - and it is delightful! It is magical! I wish I could make you smell it by reading this post, but you will have try it for yourself. That said, the shampoo leaves my hair shiny, squeaky clean and after using the shampoo-conditioner duo my hair is super soft too!
I have had an issue with some shampoos/conditioners in the past that led to dandruff for some reason - thankfully nothing like that has happened after using Just Herbs range.

Kumuda - Indian White Water Lily Silicone-Free Conditioner

About the product:
A gentle silicone-free hair conditioner that smoothens and nourishes dull and damaged hair without causing ‘build-up’ in your strands. Vibhitaki, Indian Gooseberry (Amla), Bhringraj and hibiscus are known in Ayurveda for promoting hair health and stimulating growth while Fenugreek (Methi) helps fight hair thinning and hair fall. The fragrant Kumuda or Indian white waterlily adds elasticity, volume and body to brittle hair.

Rs.695 for 200ml bottle.

My take:
I have tried a few other silicon free hair conditioners and masks - from big reputed beauty brands that too, and yes they have had the issue of causing "build up" in the strands and also led to dandruff issues as mentioned before. The Kumuda shampoo does not smell as nice as the 8-in-1 shampoo, but definitely leaves my hair feeling soft, nourished and tangle free! My only feedback is that the packaging makes it difficult to press and remove the conditioner when needed - a mask container like packaging would probably have been better or else a different bottle shape maybe.

Overall, I am really happy to be introduced to Just Herbs range and cannot wait to try more of their products ranging from skin care, makeup, bath and body, hair and much more! Do visit their website to check out their amazing offers.
