Kama Ayurveda Lavender Patchouli Hair Cleanser and Conditioner Review
Hi there, my pretties! Don’t you just love birthdays? The anticipation as the date draws near, the atmosphere of celebration in the air, the well wishes and blessings of family and friends.. It puts a smile on my face just thinking about it. But I must admit I also love the presents that come my way as well, not just the birthday cake and wishes! This year my hubby gifted me a lovely Kama Ayurveda gift basket, packed with some amazing products. The shampoo and conditioner I am going to review today were part of that basket. They were the part that I was least interested in, since I don’t deviate from my Kerastase shampoo. It works well for me and I really don’t feel like trying anything new. Normally, you won’t find me reviewing shampoos as Kerastase is my holy grail. But then I ran out of it and since this new shampoo and conditioner were already there, I thought why not give this a whirl? Read on to see whether the surprise was pleasant or not..

Packaging: The shampoo and conditioner come in clear plastic bottles with screw top caps. They do not have pumps on them, so it might be a little finicky to use them. No major issues, though. Also, the clear bottles are helpful because then you know exactly how much of the cleanser or conditioner is left.
Usage: You can use the cleanser and conditioner as you please. But I use the reverse shampoo method of cleaning my hair where I condition my hair first, and then use the shampoo on it. After shampooing my hair, I condition my hair again. Again, it’s your choice!
This fragrant cleansing duo was a pleasant surprise. They worked really well with my hair. I have dry, damaged and coloured hair but it did not dry out my hair at all. There are essential oils in both the products but they did not weigh down my long hair or make it greasy. My hair felt well-nourished and soft.
The cleanser and conditioner do have a strong fragrance, though. But I guess this could be the USP of the product since it clearly mentions that this is a Lavender and Patchouli cleanser and conditioner. So it’s slightly unfair to expect it to be unscented. As for me, well, I loved the lavender and patchouli scent! It was so relaxing and de-stressing to use this cleanser and conditioner! But yes, if you are sensitive to fragrances you might want to do the sniff test on it first before deciding to pick it up because there is no getting around this scent.
The price seems fairly reasonable since one bottle will last you a month. Of course, it depends on your usage and hair length, but if you shampoo thrice a week, it seems like a decent estimate.
Will I recommend this?
Yes! This lavender and patchouli scent bowled me over, but so did the cleanser and conditioner! What about you, dearies? Does it seem like something you would like to try? Do let me know below..
