Does not lather well

Over the years, I colored my hair in various colors, and I enjoyed that phase. I was young, wild and free. But now, my hair has become so sensitive and out of health.

I purchased this bottle of shampoo from Himalaya eight months back. So, this review is going to be a very experienced and genuine one. I have oily hair, and since I am a working woman, I wash my hair every day to look fresh and presentable. Before this shampoo, even after a wash, I had to tie my hair in a high bun because it gets too frizzy. But now, I leave it open whenever I want to.

After the first month of use, I started noticing my hair getting smooth and soft. And since then, the effect started becoming prominent, and now, my hair feels rejuvenated. It is frizz-free, does not tangle much, and my dull hair got back its shine. My hair did not react negatively to this shampoo, and I’m sure it has to do with this shampoo being chemical-free.

I have to use more amount than usual because I have long hair and this shampoo does not lather well like the other shampoos I have used. But that’s probably because it is sulfate-free. So, I don’t mind.

This shampoo is very good for sensitive and damaged hair. I will highly recommend it.



Easily available

Controls frizziness

Makes hair smooth


Does not control dandruff

Not for dry scalp

I have dry scalp and major dandruff problem. When I came across Himalaya Herbals Gentle Daily Care Protein Shampoo, I was instantly drawn to it. Since it claims to have proteins, I thought it’ll improve my scalp. I was wrong right there.

My dry scalp became drier, and the proteins did nothing to my scalp. Yes, the shampoo did make my hair smooth and managed to reduce the frizziness, but my main concern is my dry scalp and dandruff.

This shampoo is not meant for dry scalp. I’ll try their dandruff shampoo range instead. I hope that will make a difference.




Cleanses scalp well

Mild for daily use


Not travel-friendly

Does not reduce hair fall

This is the best shampoo I have used in a very long time. From the first few uses itself, my hair started showing signs of improvement. It is mild and gentle and doesn’t lather well but works effectively.

The packaging is not travel-friendly because one time I took this shampoo to one of my trips. When I unzipped my toiletry bag, the shampoo had leaked, and I ended up washing my toiletry bag, throwing my toothbrush, etc. It was such a hassle. So, I wouldn’t suggest you carrying it around.

Other than that, it’s all good. This shampoo works well with me.
