Hello dear people! ❤️❤️❤️
I hope you all are doing great! 🙂
We women are born Queens with all-natural luscious crown! But the urban lifestyle is making serious efforts to make us disown that. Dandruff, hair fall and hair damage, of course! Things that make us go absolutely crazy…
Those “Good Hair Days” are far from reality most of the times! But the great old traditional tricks have always got our back…❤️
So, when I came across a bottled hair cleanser whose label read “traditional way of cleansing and nourishing hair“, I automatically assumed it to be amazing…
But did it actually turn out to be amazing for me?
Read on to know! 😀

MY TAKE ON THE PRODUCT:
K.P. Namboodiri’s chemparathi thaali hair cleanser comes in a white-coloured plastic bottle with a green-coloured flip-cap. The labels on the bottle contain all the necessary details, like the ingredients list and shelf life… The overall packaging of the product is quite good; it is sturdy and leak-proof which makes it really travel-friendly!
The hair cleanser is transparent green in colour and has a runny consistency. It has a nice, artificial herbal fragrance… The smell is quite mild and I don’t think that it is going to bother the sensitive noses much!
This hibiscus shampoo is loaded with sulphates and unnecessary artificial colouring agents, which is something I really don’t like… Anyway, because of the SLS present, it lathers really well and less than one tablespoon of the shampoo is enough for one use… It cleanses the hair and scalp well, removes all the dirt and grime and even washes away thick hair oils in just one wash!
But that’s all it does… I have been using this shampoo for quite some time now (the bottle is about to get empty) and here are a few things I noticed – it doesn’t soothe or calm down itchy scalp, it doesn’t remove dandruff, it doesn’t help with hair fall and it doesn’t make the hair feel soft or smooth!
It also doesn’t dry out my hair if I use it once in a while, but when used regularly for a couple of days, my hair feels quite dry and rough.
I would simply say that there are much, much better shampoos available in the market in the same price range…

SUMMING UP PROS AND CONS:
1. Inexpensive and easily available online on Amazon, Flipkart and Nykaa.
2. Sturdy, leak-proof, travel-friendly packaging.
3. Has a nice fragrance.
4. Lathers really well and removes all the dirt and oil from the hair and scalp.
5. Doesn’t make the hair too dry or too rough, if not used regularly.
1. Contains a good amount of SLS.
2. Doesn’t provide any nourishment to the hair or scalp.
3. May make the hair too dry and rough, if used regularly.
FINAL TAKE: K.P. Namboodiri’s chemparathi thaali is just a regular, inexpensive hair cleanser that is loaded with sulphates. It obviously cleanses the hair well but doesn’t do anything else or provide any sort of nourishment…
In my opinion, you can give this shampoo a miss! 😛
Hope it helps! ❤️
