Palmolive Naturals Healthy and Smooth Shampoo (with aloe vera and vitamin extracts) promises tangle-free, silky smooth hair that wouldn’t need combing for hours on end even if left untied. I picked this up because my mom told me it indeed makes your hair smooth and silky. It’s for “normal hair” (whatever that means) and I have long, thick black hair that is a bit coarse and has never been shiny on it’s own because of the aforementioned coarseness. So I was a bit skeptical about the results this shampoo would give me.
What I like about this product: Well, it did make my hair incredibly smooth and soft, which doesn’t happen with just shampoo. It has a pleasant scent that is not overpowering and I actually really like it. The scent lasts through the day even in the hot Manila weather.
What I don’t like about this product: While it did leave my hair soft and silky, it didn’t help with tangles and still resulted in the hairfall I get due to breakage. And right on the day I started using this product, I developed an annoying rash on lips (of all places!) You see, I sometimes dilute shampoo in a little water to make it easier to distribute through my hair, so somehow some of that mixture trickled down my face and irritated my lips. I wasn’t using any new products aside from this one, so I landed on this conclusion. It was a nightmare, but thankfully the rash went away when I stopped using this shampoo. I kind of want to use this shampoo again to see if the rash comes back because I would really want to keep using this, but I really don’t want that rash on my lips to appear again so I’m not taking any chances.
Rating: 6/10 Maybe I’ll go back to this shampoo again sometime in the future, but for now, I’ll just be on my shampoo search for the meantime.
