Khadi Herbals Amla and Reetha Shampoo Review


1)It contains Amla & Bhingaraj which prevents hair greying and dandruff.

2)Almond oil hydrates and provides nourishment to hair.

3)Reetha is chemical free natural hair cleanser which is often used with Shikakai.

4)Since it contains good blend of ingredients,it does improve blood circulation and has soothing effect.

5)Neem and Harathki has antibacterial/antifungal properties.

6)This shampoo definitely cleanses all the hair and scalp oil,build up thoroughly.

7)Easy availability and affordable.


9)It has pleasant fragrance.


1)Incomplete ingredient list.

2)It is not effective on dandruff.

3)It does not lather like regular SLS-based shampoo (which is not actually a con if you are ok with it).

4)It tends to make dry so do follow up with a conditioner or hair serum.

5)Its time,Khadi jazzed up their packaging and made it more convenient to use.If you screw the lid with a little pressure,it breaks.

Direction for use: 

Wet hair, apply shampoo and lather. Keep for 5-10 minutes and repeat if required.

Final Verdict: 

I have been trying to include more paraben-free,silicone-free,sls-free skin and hair products in my routine.I really can feel the difference they make when compared to chemical counterparts.

So coming to Khadi Herbals Amla and Reetha Shampoo,it cleanses really well even when hair is oiled. This is the first shampoo which helped me to remove all the traces of oil like a clarifying shampoo.It does a excellent of cleansing but at the same time since it makes the hair dry so it would be good idea to follow with a conditioner or hair serum. It did not increase hair fall either.If you want a good budget shampoo for cleansing your hair then you can for it.For the price,its a decent product.

My Rating: 3/5
