Haircare iHerb Review

Iherb Products – Review no1 – Biotin B-Complex Therapy Thickening Shampoo

         As I was saying in a previous post, I will start a series of reviews for the products I have been purchasing from Iherb. You might know the fact that I am a happy customer, you can read my experiences with them HERE and HERE (sorry, no English for this one, but if you’re interested I will translate it). I made another order between these two, but I have no idea why it didn’t make it here. I promise you though, that I won’t forget to review those products. The first products I was interested in already has a review, you can read it HERE. I still adore it ^_^

       Dupa cum spuneam intr-o postare anterioara, voi incepe o serie de review-uri a produselor pe care le comand de pe Iherb. Ca sunt o clienta fidela probabil ca stiti deja, puteti gasi AICI si AICI experientele mele cu ce cei de la Iherb. Am mai dat intre timp o comanda (intre cele doua), care nu stiu de ce nu a ajuns postata pe blog, dar va promit ca produsele nu le omit la review-uit. Primul produs de care am fost interesata are deja 

un review, pe care il puteti gasi AICI. Inca il ador ^_^

      Going back to today’s post, I made a poll to find out which product you would be interested in and the winner is the Biotin B-Complex Therapy Thickening Shampoo, produced by Avalon Organics. I have been using this shampoo for almost two months now and I feel like I could tell my opinion about that. You can find it in a plastic bottle of 414 ml, quite a lot if I might say. I’ve got long hair and I haven’t used a quarter of it (I wash my hair two times per week). 
       Revenind la postarea de azi, am facut un poll pentru a afla carui produs v-ar placea sa cititi review mai intari si castigatorul este Biotin B-Complex Therapy Thickening Shampoo, produs de Avalon Organics. Am folosit acest sampon pentru aprox. 2 luni si cred ca mi-am formulat o opinie pe care o pot impartasi cu voi. Se vinde intr-un recipient de plastic de 414 ml, destul de mult, as spune eu, avand in vedere ca am parul lung si nu am folosit nici macar un sfert din el (imi spal parul cam de doua ori pe saptamana).

My opinion related to this product:
+ I like the herbal smell, the quantity and the fact it is easy to dose it. 
– I don’t like the fact that it is not foamy…almost not at all. I know it’s healthier this way, but I still feel like I should clean my hair, right? 

+ I like the fact that it doesn’t make my hair greasier, heavy and no dandruff; I have colored hair and it did not fade my colour away more than usual. 
– I couldn’t say I noticed any special volume. My hair is thin anyway, so I didn’t expect that.

+ I noticed a difference in my fallen hairs, but I can’t really say it’s the shampoo or not, considering I started taking a hair and nails complex, ordered also from Iherb. But it certainly makes a difference. Don’t expect miracles, though. 

+ A really big plus for me is that it does not get my hair any tangled. It’s a big problem for me and reason for stress and frustration, so a shampoo that gets my hair tangled goes right to the trash. I can’t say it leaves my hair like a conditioner, because it doesn’t but it’s decent working with 🙂 

+ I am indeed loosing less hair in the shower and after that. 
– I haven’t noticed any new hair growing. 

+ It is a light shampoo, I think this could be used by someone who washes his hair more often than me with no problems. 

+ Big plus for the ingredients and no animal testing

Overall, I reccomend this shampoo. It does stop the hair from falling, it makes it pretty soft and smells fine. OK ingredients. If you are looking for a light shampoo, that cleans well, is not aggressive with your hair and helps prevent losing hair, this could be a good option for you. I’m considering rebuying it.

Reccomend: 9/10 (-1 no foaming)

Parerea mea despre acest produs:
+ Imi place mirosul placut de ierburi, cantitatea si sticluta cu dozare usoara
– Nu prea imi place faptul ca nu face spuma…. cam deloc. Stiu ca e mai sanatos asa, insa mi se pare ciudat ca nu imi dau seama daca m-am samponat ok pe tot parul.

+ Nu mi-a incarcat parul, nu l-a pleostit si nu mi-a cauzat matreata; desi sunt vopsita, nu mi-a matuit culoarea si nici nu s-a “sters” mai mult decat de obicei
– Nu am observat un volum deosebit. Parul meu e oricum subtire si nu ma asteptam la asta..

+Am observat o diferenta in caderea mai putina a parului, insa nu stiu daca e datorita samponului sau pastilelor pentru par sau unghii comandate tot de pe Iherb. Se vede o diferenta, insa nu va asteptati la miracole.

+ Un mare plus pentru mine este faptul ca nu imi incurca (si mai tare) parul. E o mare problema pentru mine, motiv de stres si frustrare, asa ca un sampon care imi incurca parul ajunge direct la cosul de gunoi. Nu il lasa foarte fin precum un balsam, dar se poate lucra cat de cat cu el.

+ Nu mai pierd atat de mult par la dus
– Nu am sesizat sa imi creasca parul mai mult sau sa rasara alte firicele

+ E un sampon usor, cred ca poate fi folosit si de cineva care se spala mai des decat maine, fara probleme.

+ Un mare plus pentru ingrediente si pentru ca nu testeaza pe animale.

In concluzie, recomand acest sampon.  Ajuta la stoparea caderii parului, il face destul de fin, miroase placut si discret, ingredientele sunt OK. Daca sunteti in cautarea unui sampon usor, care curata bine si nu este agresiv cu firul de par si care sa stopeze caderea parului, acesta ar putea fi o optiune buna. Eu ma gandesc sa il recumpar.

*Acest review este facut de mine dupa aproximativ 2 luni de utilizare. Rezultatele pot diferi de la persoana la persoana. Samponul a fost achizitionat de mine, din banii mei si nu face subiectul niciunei campanii.

Recomand: 9/10 (-1 pentru ca nu face spuma)

    L-am avut si eu dar nu m-a dat pe spate, ba chiar mi se parea ca imi pleosteste parul si astfel parea si mai fin si putin. Eu i-as da un plus doar pentru ingrediente, in rest, mie nu mi-a placut.
