Healthkart Apple Cider Vinegar Anti-Dandruff Shampoo Review

Healthkart Apple Cider Vinegar Anti-Dandruff Shampoo might help to reduce dandruff with the help of neem, tea tree oil, salicylic acid, and triclosan. 

 

OUR RECOMMENDATION: 

Healthkart Apple Cider Vinegar Anti-Dandruff Shampoo is recommended to reduce dandruff in normal to dry hair. It has additional anti-bacterial, anti-inflammatory, and nourishing benefits. It might help in reducing itching and flakiness along with pus-filled bumps. 

The only downside is that it contains triclosan and salicylic acid, both the ingredients should not be used regularly. Therefore, use this shampoo not more than twice a week and reduce to once a week as dandruff improves. 

 

Pros:

  • REDUCE DANDRUFF: With the help of neem, triclosan, salicylic acid and tea tree oil. All these 4 anti-dandruff ingredients are effective and have studies to prove anti-dandruff action. 
  • REDUCE PUS-FILLED BUMPS: with the help of 3 anti-bacterial agents namely triclosan, neem and tea tree oil.
  • SOOTH INFLAMMATION: with the help of aloe vera, lavender, kiwi.
  • SHINE AND SILKY APPEARANCE:  Apple cider Vinegar might help in making your hair shiny and silky.
  • NOURISHES HAIR: with the help of Coconut oil, Olive oil, Aloe Vera, ACB Fruit, Soya protein, olive oil.
  • HAIR GROWTH: With the help of Bhringraj, Aloe Vera, Ginger extract, Amla extract, Orange extract, etc. However, we are doubtful if these ingredients can get absorbed deep down into hair roots in just 2-5 minutes of contact time. 
  • MILD: Healthkart Apple Cider Vinegar Anti-Dandruff Shampoo is mild shampoo because it contains baby safe surfactants like Sodium lauryl sarcosinate, Cocoamidopropyl betaine & Decyl Glucoside.
  • FREE FROM HARMFUL CHEMICALS: Healthkart Apple Cider Vinegar Anti-Dandruff Shampoo is free from controversial ingredients like Parabens, Phthalates and formaldehyde releasers.

 

Cons:

  • Healthkart Apple Cider Vinegar Anti-Dandruff Shampoo has Triclosan, that can accumulate in the environment and might affect hormone levels. Though absorption is unlikely from shampoo. Its use in cosmetics is restricted in Canada and Japan.
  • Healthkart Apple Cider Vinegar Anti-Dandruff Shampoo might not remove oils effectively from very oily and greasy hair.
  • It has more 37 ingredients, therefore cautious use is recommended if you are prone to allergies.
