My HG shampoo is finally over, and for the last few weeks or so I can see that the shampoo has worn out its welcome (and since I am fickle) and I wanted something else now. So I went over to my nearest Spencer’s and brought fun-sized packs of not one, not two, but four shampoos which I wanted to sample. Along with a few other things I would rather not talk about.

Enliven is a brand which has always made me happy. I remember using their body washes as an adolescent of around 15 (my mother used to get them from New Market), and I would use the body washes as little as possible, so that they would not wear out so fast. This time, I found this lovely little shampoo which was just the right size, and smelled nice too. So, with Enliven to make me happy, I decided to run back home and use it.
- Quantity: 100 ml
- Price: 60/- (just perfect!)

My Experience with Enliven Coconut and Vanilla Shampoo:
Okay, so this shampoo really does not tell me what kind of hair is it for, though it tells me here (if you look carefully beyond the crap photography) that the product DOES contain SLS but does not contain (or I might be blind or dumb…) Parabens. What I love is the fact that the company claims to use natural products, which is a good thing.
The problem with this product is, the top of the bottle comes with a cap which has to be pressed down to open. That to me screams of bad travelling buddy, because one distracted or accidental press, and your bag is going to be sudsy.
Okay, that said, I honestly find this shampoo doing a good job on my semi-dry hair. I have baby fine hair, which is very fluffy and curly. The shampoo is transparent, smells heavenly, more of vanilla than coconut (that is a good thing in my book) and the fragrance stays on my hair. It leaves my hair clean, although I have to use a bit more than I generally use normal shampoos, but that can be worked with.
It lathers up normally (so I will not show you my soapy hands, if you may please) and does a good job. I used it also on my mother’s hennaed hair, and she said her hair felt soft and quite shiny. So, score there too.
One word of caution, though. I always use shampoos with conditioners. I do not use shampoos alone. So, I used my favorite conditioner (whaddaya know, its Pantene Pro-V) after shampooing every time. However, I only condition the ends of my hair, and the top goes conditioner-free, so I am generally speaking from that angle. I found that my scalp was clean and smelled nice too. So overall, not bad at all. I do wish the consistency would be a little less runny, and the cap would not be like the way it is. Why can’t this brand just make one with a screw top cap? How difficult can that be?
Crib apart, I will do the ratings, shall I?
