K. P. Namboodiri’s Chemparathi Thaali Hibiscus Gentle Daily Hair Cleanser Review

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! 😀

SHELF LIFE: 2 years


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…

(Also read my review of Biotique Bio Margosa Anti-Dandruff Shampoo here!)



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! ❤️

Sharing is caring... ❤

  1. As a kid , I used to apply hibiscus flower paste in the hair for food nourishment and it’s a good fix for all hair related problems . This product has a good amount of SLS which is not good for hair. If that’s not there then it would have been great

  2. I am surprised to read about a product which has so many chemicals on your blog… since you tend to use and recommend products that are more natural and healthier for everyone.
    Also, it seems that this product is probably better suited for people with oily hair- so the drying out feature would infact help them not us.
    I still find daily washing of hair to be a chore and a tad unnecessary – do you recommend a daily head/hair wash?

    1. Yes, I was unaware of the chemicals when I first bought it! 😛
      You can try mamaearth / Wow hair cleansers for daily use.. 🙂

  3. Hibiscus works well for hair and it’s good that this shampoo has it as an ingredient. Only if that SLS was not there….

      1. I was thinking about the age old method which my grandma uses to make chembarathi thaali which contains zero chemical and toxic free. But this shampoo is not that .As you said it’s loaded with chemicals

  4. I don’t really use shampoo regularly or daily. Once or twice a week at the most but I am wary of using this one since it contains sls. But the packaging is amazing

  5. I like the way that you unveil all the positives and negatives too. This is so helpful for readers. For example, this product though not bad, may not serve the purpose for those already having dry hair.

  6. I am a huge fan of natural hair cleanser, when I was a child my granny used to prepare hair cleanser using hibiscus leaves. Thanks for sharing the honest review, if it contains good amount of SLS , I should give it a miss.

  7. Loved the honest review and the way you framed is too good. Saying everything in positive way. Company should learn and make product more nourishing for the hairs.

  8. I really loved the way you always share honest review…I don’t know if it is not providing any nourishment need to think before buying!

  9. All the goodness of the ingredients seems to be misleading & rendered ineffective due to presence of sls etc..my already dry Hair would never take to such a product. Glad for the honest review

  10. Never heard of this brand before, but there are many many brands which boasts of organic ingredients which often confuses us…thank you for sharing your experience

  11. Really appreciate your honest reviews. I’ll avoid this product because of SLS. Thanks for sharing it. The packaging looks amazing tho.

  12. The main ingredient sounds so good but it’s a shame that it contains sls. I have stopped using products that contained sls, otherwise would have tried it for sure.

  13. I think I have tried this brand a few years back and it’s not bad actually. My only concern is SLS…They could have avoided it…

  14. Haha! Loved your honest review. I normally avoid shampoos with sulphates as it can be damaging for hair. I will share it with people who are ok with sulphate shampoos.

  15. As always, an absolutely honest review from you Mrinal! I will be sure to avoid this product.
