Hello dear people! ❤❤❤
I hope you all are doing great! 🙂
So, does it ever happen to you that you see something in a shop that you don’t really need, but it is just too cute or quirky or unique and you buy it anyway? 😛
Well, it happens to me all the time! XD
And it is also how I came in possession of this wine shampoo a few months back, which I am going to review today for you all!
I had heard a lot about beer shampoos in the past, but a wine shampoo in a wine bottle kind of packaging was too unique for me to skip! 😛
ASTA BERRY WINE SHAMPOO

MY TAKE ON THE PRODUCT:
Asta Berry wine shampoo comes in a translucent, amber-coloured plastic bottle packaging with a red-coloured flip-cap on the top. The overall packaging (which resembles a red wine bottle) is quite sleek, sturdy and leak-proof which makes it really travel-friendly! ❤
All the necessary details about the product, including the complete list of ingredients, shelf life and price are mentioned over the bottle…
The shampoo has a smooth, runny consistency and is reddish violet in colour… It has an unusual but pleasant, artificial fruity fragrance which is quite mild and probably wouldn’t trouble the sensitive noses… 😛
The shampoo lathers quite well (though not as much as Pantene or Head & Shoulders shampoos) and cleanses the scalp and hair of all the dirt, grime, oil and impurities. I have long but thin hair and I have noticed that when my hair is not too dirty or greasy, one tablespoon of the shampoo is enough for a proper hair wash… But when I oil my hair or it gets too dirty, two washes are needed to cleanse the hair and scalp properly!
The shampoo rinses off with ease and doesn’t leave behind any residue, although, it may leave your hair slightly fragrant (which is only noticeable on sniffing)…
I have a normal to dry hair type and a normal, dandruff-prone scalp… I have been using this wine shampoo for over three weeks now and one thing that I have noticed clearly is that this shampoo does not reduce dandruff at all, unlike what it claims!
The shampoo makes the hair feel slightly soft post wash and doesn’t leave it too dry or rough… But it also doesn’t “condition” the hair enough and my hair starts to tangle within 12 hours of shampooing! Plus, my hair is already quite frizzy and it just increases its frizziness, making my tied hair look like a witch’s broom! 😛
On the other hand, one thing that I like about this shampoo is that with regular use, it may reduce the hair fall to some extent… I have seen a slight reduction in the number of hair strands that I lose every day, ever since I started using this…
It also imparts a shine to the hair which lasts for about two days and is mainly noticeable when you brush/comb your hair… 😀
