Few of my readers introduced me to this brand called “WOW Organics”. I was asked by several curlies to check the ingredient list of their range of shampoos as they claimed to be sulfate and paraben free andddd there were so many positive comments regarding the shampoo. So, I had to get my hands on this product. Price Rs. 499 for 300 ml Availability: Easily available at online shopping sites Amazon & Flipkart You can buy it here: WOW Miracle 10 in 1 Shampoo Ingredients: It is in fact sulfate and paraben free. It contains Polyquats – 7 & 10. Polyquats have detangling and conditioning properties for which it is usually used in shampoos and conditioner. Well, polyquaternium-10 seems all okay. But I was not sure about Polyquarternium-7 which supposedly has a film forming property if used in higher quantities. But then this ingredient is after the first 5 […]

For the longest period of time, we all would have heard that mousse are for curly hair. But tell me franklyy, how many of us curlies have actually tried a mousse? I did not even think of buying a mousse till I started Curlacious. Even after I got this mousse, I did not use it much. I mean, I did use it on and off but not well enough or say consciously enough to do a review. However, yesterday, I washed my hair after a nice (excessive) oil treatment. Just when I was going to take bath, *bam* came a surprise guest and I hurriedly took bath in the washroom which I had not set up for my bath!!! 🙁 The shampoo in this bathroom had just few drops left which I was keeping to post a review. Long story short, I quickly washed hair with the ‘Ritha water’ that I […]
