I get bored of using just one shampoo all the time and so my bathroom shelf is always filled with at least 8-10 brands of different shampoos at a time. I usually don’t bother if it’s a well-known or a lesser known brand and mostly my selection criteria is based on how the shampoo bottle looks and how the shampoo smells. My brother, on the contrary, is very selective and will more often than not settle only for high-end, well-known or expensive brands. Bath & Body Works Pleasures Moonlight Path Volumizing Shampoo was actually something that my brother bought for himself and I ended up trying it even before he did.
- Price: I don’t remember exactly but it was approx. Rs 500 / Rs 600

My experience with Bath & Body Shampoo
I would start with saying that it smells awesome and that’s what pushed me to try it in the first place. It does smell like a bouquet of lavender and roses (I don’t know how violets smell) and the smell is so pleasant that even people who don’t prefer their products to have any sort of specific smells will love it unless they hate the smell of lavender. Bath & Body Works, as most of us know, is a recognized brand in US and that’s also another point that fascinated me to try it out. I checked their website where the shampoo looks like a dark purple transparent liquid but in reality it is a very light purple transparent liquid which in fact appears almost colourless. Many may not like transparent shampoos but personally I prefer such products because to me it indicates lesser chemicals / milder chemicals on my scalp.
Swatch of the shampoo (Check the colour of the liquid in the bottle):
It comes with a flip-flop lid which is quite sturdy and secure. What I like is that the lid also has an option to be unscrewed so that every possible drop of shampoo in the bottle can be used when it’s on the verge of getting over. Often in even the most expensive shampoo brands, I have seen that a flip-flop lid either breaks or doesn’t close properly but in this case, it’s just perfect.
Close-up of the flip-flop lid of the shampoo bottle:
I have waist-length hair and I require a little more than coin-size or say maybe 3 ml of this shampoo per wash. It lathers very well and cleans well too. It’s effective in removing oil from our hair as well but the number of washes required is more than one depending on the amount of oil one has put. As far as hairfall is concerned, I didn’t experience any extra hairfall but it didn’t eliminate or stop hairfall, i.e. I do experience a certain amount of hairfall with every wash irrespective of the shampoo I use and that continued in this case too. I always test every new shampoo that I use to see whether it requires to be followed up with a conditioner or not. Well, this one did. Not that it completely stripped my hair of moisture but my hair felt a little dry though they were still manageable. The second time I washed my hair with this shampoo, I followed up with a conditioner and they felt just fine. Lastly, did it give any extra volume to my hair? Well, my hair is fairly dense in any case so didn’t really experience any extra volume. Therefore, can’t be sure if it’s going to do any wonders on limp hair.
Overall, I would say that this isn’t a bad shampoo if one doesn’t mind the price. And if you are as crazy as me to select shampoos on basis of how they smell, then in any case you wouldn’t be able to stop yourself from picking this up
