Review: Botanicals Fresh Care Coriander Shampoo

 

Throwback to when I used to spend almost $30 (approx. RM100) on shampoo and conditioner monthly. In year 2016, my career canon-balled and I set myself a goal to achieve 'mini financial freedom in 5-years time'. Spending RM100 on hair care might not seem much to many but it made sense to save up back then and hair care was first on the chopping board. I knew where I wanted to spend on and I knew where I wanted to be. stopramblingjeez. With that said, I only use hair products that are silicon and paraben free.

What Is It

a botanical concoction of coriander seed, soya and coconut oil. the formula strengthens and REVITALIZES the feel of fragile hair. Infused with a fresh, invigorating aroma. No silicon, No Paraben and No colorants (fabulous!) the packaging is 100% recyclable and Made with 100% recycled plastic.

After using the Botanicals Fresh Care Coriander Shampoo for 5 months now, I am ready to give my humble opinion. First of, I love the scent. A woody undertone which reminds me of free shower gel at a posh spa in Bali. The bottle feels sturdy and is slightly transparent which makes it easy to tell how much product is left. Also, the pump discharges perfect amount for one wash. Product label still looking smart as it initially was. I find labels that look half dissolved aesthetically unpleasing. A+ for the packaging.

At the back, it says "apply on wet hair, lather well before rinsing off with water" so that's what I did (just like every other shampoo). It foams up ever so slightly. Scalp feels 'minty' and clean after every wash. Shampooing has never been more enjoyable. I double cleanse on most days but not recently since Summer in Hunan is toasty and dry. Hair became noticeably drier so I aborted mission and went back to Plan A. My hair has never looked healthier.

Currently running on the 5th month and I still have 1/5 left! I reckon this could last me 6 months. Priced at RM34 essentially breaking down to RM5.70 per month. Bloody good deal. Mummy was a proud parent as I spent RM34 on a bottle of shampoo instead of cashing on a slice of fancy-ass cheesecake. Deeply considering trying different products from this range. Coriander strength potion?! Take my money. Bought mine from Tesco in Bangkok last Christmas. Fellow Malaysians can find it at all pharmacies nationwide.

Disclaimer: This shampoo was paired with Inecto Naturals Coconut Hair Treatment (fabulous product). So it could be the coconut and I'm totally making things up. Good lord.
