This shampoo from the brand is quite old and previously it used to come with the name of ‘Sunsilk smooth and nourishing shampoo’, however, its packaging is a little bit changed now. In its new packaging, we can see its new and modified name. However, the goodness of this shampoo remains unchanged. According to the brand Sunsilk, this shampoo is enriched with 5 natural oils which nourish your hair making them soft and smooth. So, if I compare my experience with these claims of the brand, I feel it is not 100% true. There are some terms and conditions attached to these claims. If you have an oily scalp and you do not use any sort of hair conditioners, you won’t find much difference in your hairs even after using this shampoo. Whereas, the dry scalp may observe a better look; that too a temporary one. Just from the second day of your hair wash, you will feel some sort of stickiness or a kind of oiliness in your hair texture. So, you have to shampoo your hair every 3 days to keep your hair smooth and soft. The fragrance of the shampoo is really nice but does not stay much on your hair. It fades off by the day end. Day 1 of your shampooed hair will make your hair texture very smooth, but it does not control frizziness of the hair. But from the next, it is all normal. Therefore, I would say that this shampoo has nothing ‘wow factor’ in it and can be considered as a general cleaning purpose shampoo. And yes, even after the presence of 5 natural oils, this shampoo doesn’t make a bigger difference. Hence, I may not recommend it as these category shampoos are widely available everywhere. I would rate this shampoo 3 out of 5 stars.

Makes the scalp clean and hair soft.

PROS

Repairs limp and dry hair

Price is reasonable

CONS

The bottle cap is not sturdy


Sunsilk Shampoo takes me back to my childhood memories. I still remember the sunsilk yellow egg shampoo I used it during my school days. As time passed, I switched to many other shampoos and sunsilk has also given a new appearance with new names. My grandma was a loyal customer to sunsilk and she never changed the shampoo. Sunsilk Dream Soft And Smooth Shampoo comes in a yellow sturdy bottle with a flip cap. The cap doesn't close tightly fulfilling my expectation. I always have a fear that the cap would open and the shampoo would leak destroying my properties in bag. So I carry shampoo sachet which makes the work simple and easy and I could be free from leakage. The price is also reasonable. The shampoo contains five natural oils and enriched with egg ceramide complex. The shampoo ideally suits dry hair. It claims to moisturize and nourish the scalp. The shampoo is off white in color and easily forms lather, even with a small quantity. I usually apply oil 1 hour prior to shampooing my hair. This makes my hair soft. Wet your hair and dilute the shampoo in small amount of water. Apply in scalp and through the length of hair. Rinse and apply conditioner. Leave it for 2-3 minutes and wash your hair. The shampoo has an amazing fragrance which lasts for about 2 days. The hair feels soft and smooth. It is less frizzy. I haven't seen any increase in my hair volume. But it keeps the hair clean from impurities and helps in getting a frizz free, soft hair. It also works well with colored hair. It removes the excess amount of oil from hair. Some people may feel a itching sensation after using this shampoo, in that case discontinue this shampoo and it doesn't suit you. According to me, it is a good shampoo, especially for those people who have a dry, frizzy hair.

I have been using this for years – Never disappoints

PROS

Imparts shine to hair

Cleans the scalp thoroughly

Smoothens the hair

Removes oil and dirt easily

Pleasing smell

CONS

Packaging is not travel-friendly


My work requires me to travel to all the remote places. Though I love my work, my hair is not getting the best out of it. By the time I reach my hotel or room, my hair is dry, very frizzy and when I run my fingers through my scalp, the amount of dirt I can feel is disgusting.

On one work trip, I took Sunsilk Dream Soft & Smooth Shampoo along with me. The first time I used this shampoo, it felt soft on my hair. The sweet fragrance filled the bathroom and even after 5-6 hours, the smell lingered.

The shampoo is infused with five natural oils and egg ceramide complex, which is a good combination for luscious hair. The open flip cap is not as sturdy as I thought it would be, so it’s not advisable to carry it around without being worried. I wrap it in a plastic cover and then dump it in my bag.

I have used this shampoo for over a month now, and the tangles, the frizziness, and the dryness are taken care of. My scalp feels squeaky clean after every use. The effect stays long.

I don’t really get time to explore different products, so when I like something, I stick with it for a long time. So, this Sunsilk shampoo is going to be my travel essential for a long time.

Regret buying this shampoo
1.5/5

PROS

Cleanses the scalp well

CONS

Contains chemicals

Increases hair fall

Not ideal for oily hair


I have been using this shampoo for two weeks now, and I will say that for my oily hair, it does not work as I want it to. Yes, it does a good job of cleaning my scalp, but that’s about it.

After every wash, my hair feels clean for some time, but after seven to eight hours, it starts feeling heavy, and my scalp starts to itch because of sweating maybe. But I am sure about my hair fall. These two weeks of this shampoo have increased my hair fall.

I am not going to continue using this shampoo nor will I recommend it to others. I think the problem is with the chemicals this shampoo has. The only chemicals I am aware of it being harmful is silicone, paraben, and SLS. And out of this three, I am certain that silicone and SLS are present. So, I am not going to take any risk with my hair.

Smoothened my hair like a pro

This Sunsilk shampoo does a pretty good job in removing the excess oil from my hair. Even if I oil my hair overnight, this shampoo does a good job in removing it.

Sunsilk Dream Soft & Smooth Shampoo is easily available and comes at a very cheap price. And the best part is, the bottle lasts long. I have been using this shampoo for over a month, and I still have a good amount left in the bottle. So, it is an ideal shampoo for those who cannot spend much on such items.

Now coming to its efficacy, my hair has become smoother. When I go out after use, my hair shines and I have received so many compliments. The texture of this shampoo is mild and lathers well, so while washing, all my scalp and hair is easily covered, resulting in good cleansing.

Overall, my verdict for this shampoo is – it is a good shampoo that works well and is easily accessible.
