I have always had thick long hair without any hairfall issues since childhood, thanks to regular oil champis my mom used to do every Sunday night. But when I entered college I started blow drying and ironing and did not oil my hair anymore.
And within a year my hair became a dry frizzy mess. I started oiling again and switched to Tresemme climate control shampoo and conditioner and within months my hair was back to its original state (or so I thought due to the silicone effect).
I had been using it for almost 5 years and was happy with it until I read about the effects of sulfates and other chemicals on hair and decided to switch to another shampoo. My search finally narrowed down to Bon Organics Aloe Vera Shampoo.
Infused with citrus oils and organic aloe vera extract, our Aloe Vera shampoo is an organic delight for the hair. Aloe Vera is plentiful with beneficial qualities to the hair such as hair softening, smoothening and naturally volumizing with a lightweight effect.
This Gentle yet effective cleanser is also an energizing hair volume enhancer. This artistic craft is a 100% Handmade Shampoo. It is Paraben free and biodegradable.
Price: Rs.159 for 100 grams, Rs.315 for 200 grams.
Shelf life: 2 years
About the product:
The Bon Organics Aloe Vera shampoo comes in a transparent plastic bottle with a flip-top cap. The cap shuts tight and does not cause any leaks. The shampoo is a colourless liquid with a slightly runny consistency and has a floral fragrance.
Safe surfactants invigorated with Organic Aloe Vera, Organic Essential oils of chamomile, Vitamin E, Blueberry. Natural conditioner. Contains No Harsh Chemicals, No alcohol, No animal products, no Paraben or sulfates.
Direction to use:
Take required quantity of Bio Organic & Natural’s Aloe Vera shampoo on palm and create a vague lather. Apply onto hair and scalp and continue to lather. Finally, cleanse and rinse thoroughly.
Repeat if necessary. Avoid contact with eyes. Follow the routine with Bio Organic & Naturals’ Aloe Vera conditioner for better results.
This has to be the first shampoo I have come across with all positive user reviews. I was initially hesitant about this shampoo due to the ambiguous ingredient list. It just says ‘safe surfactants’ and also there is no mention of the preservative used
But all those good reviews and the USDA certification compelled me to at least give it one try. The moment the package arrived, I decided to try it out by cleaning my makeup brush.
Now I oil and shampoo my hair twice a week and need two washes to remove the oil completely even with sulfate based shampoos. I took a little more quantity of Bon Organics Aloe Vera Shampoo than I usually use, diluted it with about cup of water just like I used to with the Tresemme one.
It did not lather at all. But during the second wash, it lathered well, not like the sulfate ones but decent. I skipped conditioner to check how it worked on its own.
It cleansed the hair well and removed all the oil but my hair tangled up a lot so a little conditioner is a must smooth them out. Once dry, my hair was all frizzy and felt dry but I knew it would take some time for the hair to get used to sulfate and silicone free shampoos.
After a month of using this twice a week, my hair has softened up and doesn’t feel dry anymore. I have reduced the quantity I use too( the key to sulfate free shampoos is more water apparently!).
My hair is still slightly frizzy due to the humid Mumbai climate so I use 2-3 drops of almond oil as a serum (still trying to find an affordable silicone-free serum) and it’s manageable.
I have used this without oiling too and it works well too although I need two washes to completely clean it out. My mom and sister have also started using this and it has worked well for them too.
We have already ordered two more bottles of Bon Organics Aloe Vera Shampoo during the Bon Organics flash sale. They mentioned on their Instagram page that the surfactant used is derived from a plant called ‘soapwort’ and their other products have natural preservative of TCLS.
If you have nothing bad to hide, why not put it on the label Bon Organics?
- Sulfate and silicone free formula
- Free of other harmful chemicals
- Affordable price
- Cleanses hair well
- Doesn’t strip natural oils from the scalp
- Suitable for oiled hair
- Handmade and certified organic
- Natural preservatives and no artificial fragrance
- The ingredient list is still a bit ambiguous
If you are looking for an affordable shampoo without sulfates you should definitely try the Bon Organics Aloe Vera Shampoo. A conditioner is necessary if you have dry hair and to remove tangles.
But that’s pretty much the situation with all the shampoos out there so it’s not a big deal. I just wish they make bigger sizes packaging available since we run out of it quite soon as there are three of us using this.
I have become a Bon Organics fan and can’t wait to try out their other products soon. Have you used Bon Organics products? Share your experience below in comments.
