Vilvah Goatmilk Shampoo Review

Last Updated on April 2, 2024

Are you looking for a good natural shampoo that is gentle, hydrating and packaged sustainably too? Then the  Vilvah Goatmilk Shampoo must have definitely crossed your mind.

This shampoo is considered one of the best organic shampoos in the Indian market right now due to its sustainable packaging and pH-balanced formulation. 

I have been recommending it to my readers who are looking for a good natural and sulfate-free shampoo for dry hair. And they recently revamped the formula to make it even more moisturizing and concentrated.

So I finally ordered the Vilvah Goatmilk shampoo for myself as soon as my previous shampoo was over to see if it suits my needs too.

Product Claims:

Get the perfect hair flip moments with our new improved Goatmilk shampoo. This natural formula offers rich creamy lather with ultra-moisturizing goat milk.

About the Product:

The Vivah Goatmilk Shampoo is sold in an aluminium bottle with a plastic pump-dispenser cap and sealed with plastic cling wrap. The bottle is sturdy yet not travel-friendly due to its size(Vilvah has a travel-size option though).

The shampoo is white-coloured with a soothing jasmine scent and a lotion-like consistency.

My Experience Using the Vilvah Goatmilk Shampoo:

My first impressions of the shampoo were a bit disappointing as the product was leaking when I opened the shipment. The cap was not closed rightly which led to 2-3 pumps of shampoo leaking out and making it a mess.

I was also a bit sad to see a plastic cling wrap/bubble wrap around the bottle since the brand has a sustainable packaging policy. But I decided to ignore it and proceeded to shampoo my hair with this.

The pump dispenser has to be twisted about 15-20 times the first time to unlock it. I mixed about 4-5 pumps of the Vilvah Goatmilk shampoo in some water to dilute it.

This instantly fills your nostrils with a soothing yet mild jasmine scent. I oil my hair regularly so it requires 2 washes to clean my scalp and remove all excess oil. 

The shampoo does a good job of cleansing the scalp. And the lather is better compared to other sulfate-free shampoos I have tried in the past. 

Sometimes I need to use a bit more to get rid of oil-based hair masks I apply before shampoo. But on unoiled hair, a single wash is enough to remove all dirt and grime.

Does is Really Moisturize Hair?

I used the shampoo without oiling or conditioning a few times to test its moisturizing claims. My hair strands tend to be on the drier sides and hence oiling or deep-conditioning is a must to keep it soft and frizz-free

The Vilvah Goatmilk shampoo definitely has a moisturizing or rather hydrating effect even without a conditioner. I don’t recommend skipping the conditioner since it does lead to some frizziness. But yes, it didn’t leave my hair rough and dry which is a good sign.

The Vilvah Goatmilk shampoo is definitely more hydrating than the two other natural liquid shampoos I have tried in the past (Soultree and Bon Organics). So people with normal to dry hair can use this for sure along with a good conditioner.

Overall, I found this shampoo to be gentle on hair yet effective in cleansing the scalp. They have used surfactants that don’t strip away moisture from hair while removing dirt and excess oils.

However, if you have an itchy scalp or dandruff, I recommend trying their Dandruff control variant over this one.
