Recently, Garnier came out with their Ultra Blends shampoos in five variants. I had initially seen these in Big Bazaar racks and I could not pick them up as my mother and sister was busy picking up other kitchenware stuff. After the advertisement went on air, these are quite easily available in drugstores. I had intentions of picking up the Lavender one but the shop wherein I went, had it only in three variants. So, I picked up the 5 Precious Herbs variant.
The packaging claims it to be a paraben free shampoo with natural extracts, meant exclusively for everyday use. Also as per the labelling, it would help in providing a healthy scalp and strong, bouncy hair. It retails at INR 55 for net content of 75 ml. The 5 herbs infused within this shampoo formulation are – Green Tea, Lemon, Henna, Aloe and Eucalyptus. The shampoo comes in a pastel green travel friendly plastic packaging with golden lid which has a leaf inscribed onto it.
The texture of the shampoo is slightly runny and smells slightly citrusy. The fragrance isn’t too over powering though and I quite liked it. I had my doubts that the shampoo might be quite mild and wouldn’t lather much. But to my surprise, it lathers pretty well and makes hair soft and shiny. My hair texture is fine and slightly limp. One disappointing factor being that if you have oiled your hair, it might not get properly washed off in one go. In monsoon humidity, it managed to keep my hair oil free for one full day and by the second day; my hair roots began to get oily. But in Delhi’s humidity, you can hardly get around without washing your hair every day.
