St Botanica Apple Cider Vinegar Shampoo is sulphate free shampoo that can be used regularly for dry to normal hair for nourishing and adding shine to strands.

 

PROS:

  • St Botanica Apple Cider Vinegar & Argan Shampoo might help in making your hair shiny and silky with the help of Apple cider Vinegar; however, we are doubtful if less than 5 minutes contact of apple cider vinegar that too in shampoo base can achieve this.
  • It might nourish your hair the help of Argan oil and almond oil, olive oil & jojoba oil
  • It claims to help in hair regrowth with the help of green apple extract and rosemary essential oil. However, these ingredients are unlikely as discussed in this video, Best shampoo for hair fall, Do they really work?
