St. Botanica Ultimate Hair Repair Shampoo is sulphate free shampoo worth buying for dry and damaged hair because it has mild surfactant and it has oils like coconut, argan, and almond that can nourish the dry scalp.

 

PROS:

  • St. Botanica Ultimate Hair Repair Shampoo is sulphate free shampoo and has baby safe surfactants like  Decyl Glucoside, Cocamidopropyl betaine, Sodium Cocoyl isethionate that does not remove already deficient natural moisturising factor from your dry scalp. Thus, St. Botanica Ultimate Repair Shampoo is recommended for dry hair.
  • It has argan oil, coconut oil, almond oil, soy protein that can nourish dry and damaged hair.
  • It might reduce dandruff with the help of tea tree oil and lavender oil.

 

 

CONS:

  • St. Botanica Ultimate Hair Repair Shampoo might not remove excess oils from the greasy scalp.
  • It claims that 3 DHT blockers namely saw palmetto, nettle leaf extract and green tea might help in reducing Male pattern hair loss. However, these ingredients are unlikely to help as explained in this video, Best shampoo for hair fall, Do they really work?
