So My Munchkins,
I have one of the most exquisitely packaged shampoos that I have seen in my life to review today….all the way from Germany! Khadi Rose Hair Repair Shampoo.
This nourishing shampoo contains lots of juicy ingredients including natural cleansers and oils, with natural extracts such as hibiscus, rose and aloe vera gel.
Khadi Rose Hair Repair Shampoo is also full of proteins and ceramides to help strengthen and repair damaged hair. Just check out the sumptuous ingredients below:
Aqua, Coco Glucoside, Lauryl Glucoside, Glycerin, Sodium PCA, Syzygium Cumini (Jamun), Citric Acid, Sodium Cocoyl Glutamate, Rosa Damascena (Rose), Vetiver Zizanioides, Glycyrrhiza Glabra (Süßholz), Hibiscus Rosa Sinensis (Hibiskus), Symplocos Racemosa (Lodhra), Aloe Barbadensis Gel (Aloe Vera), Coco Glucoside & Glyceryl Oleate, Emblica Officinalis (Amla), Acacia Concinna (Shikakai), Sapindus Mukurossi (Reetha), Citrus Aurantium Essential Oil, Hydrolysed Wheat Protein (Weizenprotein), Hydrolysed Sweet Almond Protein (Mandelprotein), Squalane, Ceramide, Oryza Sativa Oil, Xanthan gum, Zinc PCA, Sodium Benzoate & Potassium Sorbate, Azadirachta Indica Oil, Citral*, Geraniol*, Farnesol*, Linalool*, Limonene*
This is probably the girliest shampoo that I own…..however don’t let the pretty pink packaging fool you! This shampoo does pack a powerful punch when it comes to strengthening the hair cortex, reducing breakage and assisting the hair in locking in more moisture during the conditioning process.
I have spoken about protein at great length in my past videos and blog posts (I will probably delve a bit deeper in future however), and all of my followers will know that I think it’s one of the most important aspects of healthy hair care.
When hair is damaged (which can be a result of any kind of manipulation), the shingles of the hair outer cuticle (which protect the cortex and all of the moisture and nutrients locked inside) start to chip away, leaving the hair more porous and prone to breakage. This means that a weakened hair shaft tends to leak moisture more easily…..resulting in dry, brittle hair.
Using products containing proteins and ceramides helps to provide a temporary bandage over the damaged cuticle, helping to lock in moisture for longer and preventing excess dryness.
Now that mini cosmetology lesson is over…..my hair felt significantly stronger after using this shampoo!
I have to add that my hair did not feel soft immediately after rinsing out this shampoo, neither did it feel stripped. My curls actually felt quite hard…..the exact feeling you get after using a strong protein conditioner!
This however didn’t alarm me! I just followed up with a super moisturising conditioner blended with some coconut oil. When I rinsed out my hair literally felt like spun silk!
I noticed a reduction in frizz and shedding straight away and my hair remained soft well up to the next wash day.
The consistency was very runny, so be careful how hard you squeeze the bottle! However, it also lathers very easily and only a 10p-sized amount is needed to cover and cleanse the whole head of hair.
My curls felt clean, but not squeaky clean…..which I personally like! This is perfect for those with dry, coarse or thick hair.
The fragrance was beautiful, with a perfumey rose and neroli scent that lingers on the hair. I definitely prefer more floral scents in my hair products as opposed to anything sickly sweet.
I would highly recommend this product to anyone with bleached, coloured or chemically straightened/permed hair.
Overall, this product gets a good solid 9/10 from me!
You can purchase this wonderful shampoo here and I look forward to potentially trying more from Khadi in the new year!
Have any of you tried this product before? What did you think? Let me know in the comments!
