Hello Beautiful Souls! ❤❤❤
Hope you all are doing great! 😀
So, today I am going to talk about a product that has my heart since 2016!!! 😀 😀 😀
Yes! Yes! Our eyes first met in 2016 on ‘amazon.in’ andddd…
And then, it remained ‘Happily Ever After’ on my bathroom shelf! 😛 😛 😛
Okay fine! I am done with my over acting! XD

MY TAKE ON THE PRODUCT:
The Biotique Bio Margosa shampoo come in many many sizes! 😀
The smaller ones come in a sturdy, translucent bottle with either a screw on lid or a flip cap.. And the biggest one comes in a sturdy, white coloured bottle with a transparent green coloured separator (or decor.. I am yet to decode its function! 😛 ) and a pump dispenser! The best thing that I found in the packaging of the big 800ml bottle is that the pump dispenser comes with a cork that if fitted around the neck of the pump, stops the pump from moving under pressure! This makes the bottle of every size equally travel friendly! 😀 ❤❤❤
This Neem shampoo has a medium to thick consistency and a bright pastel green colour to it! 😀
And the fragrance…. ❤
It smells so amazing and refreshing and has a hint of herbs in it… Plus, the fragrance is not at all over powering and subsides after rinsing off the shampoo! (Which in my opinion is good, as no fragrant chemicals are left on the hair after wash!) ❤
The Shampoo lathers quite well, although not as greatly as the regular shampoos laden with SLS! It produces enough lather to wash away thick oils (Like castor oil) from hair in just one wash, without stripping off the Natural moisture! ❤❤❤
Now, talking about the issues of my mane….. My hair is extremely dry and rough and the scalp is two steps ahead of my hair! No matter what season of the year it is, I always suffer from flaking on my scalp.. Although the Dandruff takes the form of some mud like residue during Summers, due to the sweat… It is still present.. 🙁
And before you wonder why I don’t visit a dermatologist, let me tell you I have! And those medical lotions and shampoos claiming to remove the dandruff for ever within a month of use, didn’t do any good to me and neither the big brands like Amway worked! 🙁
Coming back to the Product… I bought it sometime around the beginning of 2016 when I was facing a hell lot of hair fall due to dandruff and somehow was adamant to use a Neem shampoo to treat it! (Mostly because nothing else had worked and someone asked me to wash my hair using neem leaves soaked water.. and I was just too lazy to do that! 😛 )
I remember that just after the first wash I could feel that the itching on my scalp had decreased a lot… I used to wash my hair every alternate day, back then, and surprisingly it reduced my Dandruff greatly by third wash itself… ❤
With continued regular use, it almost ceased the appearance of dandruff and even reduced the number of hair strands that I used to lose from 40-50 per wash to just around 10-12 per wash… ❤
Today, this Shampoo is a staple for me and I just can’t do without it… ❤
It keeps my scalp dandruff free for almost two to three days (That’s the longest result any product has given me for my scalp issues!) after wash, after which the dandruff starts reoccurring! (because I have an extremely dry skin, so it would reoccur anyway!) ❤❤❤
Also, even after being an anti-dandruff shampoo, it doesn’t dry out my mane! As mentioned, I have very dry hair and it keeps my hair looking shiny and soft (*Soft but not conditioned, obviously!*) for quite a few hours after wash even if I use it on bare/ not oiled hair and skip a conditioner! ❤❤❤

SUMMING UP PROS AND CONS:
1. Easily Available both online & offline and comes in many sizes; From travel friendly sample sizes to huge deluxe ones!
2. Quite affordable and priced at par with the shampoos of other brands!
3. Smells refreshing but not at all over-powering and the smell doesn’t last very long!
4. Lathers well, although not as much as SLS laden shampoos, and washes away all the oil (Even after deep, hot oil massages) from the hair and scalp in one wash itself! ❤
5. Starts treating the itching and flakiness of the scalp from the very first wash! ❤
6. Treats chronic dandruff to a great extent and even stops the appearance of dead skin on the scalp if used on alternate days or once every three days depending on the seriousness of the issue… ❤
7. Doesn’t dry out the hair like other anti dandruff shampoos! I have very dry hair and the shampoo never makes it feel more dry or limp! ❤
8. Reduces the hair fall caused due to dandruff by 70%! ❤
1. The complete ingredients list is absent! 🙁
(Although the brand claims that no preservatives or harmful chemicals are being used, a complete list of ingredients would have been much appreciated!)
FINAL TAKE: Well, when I say that I cannot survive a week without this Shampoo, irrespective of the season, it has got to be really effective! 😀
If you are suffering from a dry scalp with itching, flaking or dandruff… Just go for this Shampoo without a doubt! ❤❤❤
Hope It Helps! ❤
