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.
Rs. 499 for 300 ml
Easily available at online shopping sites Amazon & Flipkart

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 ingredients on the list so its % would be less. Also, on searching around I found that polyquat 7 & 10 both are present in DevaCurl products ~~ which are bestesttttt products for curly hair..so that puts a full stop to my confusion.
It was a total love at first sight!! I heart the dark brown plastic bottle with a golden pump!! The pump works like a charm. Dispenses appropriate amount of shampoo with each pump.
Consistency & Color:
Light golden yellow in color. Consistency is runny.
How I use:
This is how I shampoo in general. I section my very wet hair. take one pump of the shampoo, water it down and rub between palms to spread and lather and then shampoo my scalp section-wise.
This shampoo produces good lather when I rub it between my palms and use more water to shampoo. It gives a very clean feel yet doesn’t dry out my hair. If you have used a sulfate-free shampoo and know what to expect, then you will love this shampoo. it spreads easily and gives an soft feel post wash! (which is probably due to the polyquats). I love how this shampoo leaves my hair feeling. I have been using it for about a month now and I loving it!!
Does most of the things that it claims to do in ’10 in 1′. Well I cannot comment on the strengthening, binding split ends and protecting color thing. But rest of the claims are true!! 🙂
- Cleans hair and scalp very well
- Does not dry out hair or scalp
- Gives hair a soft feel
- Spreads easily
- Imparts a mild shine
- Doesn’t weight hair down
- A little goes a long way
- Forms mild lather (If you are the lather-loving type…then this is a pro for you! 😉 well, we all love our bubbles at times, don’t we!)
- May be, the polyquats could be a little lower on the list? But I don’t find any build up or weighing down with this shampoo, though. So it seems okay.
- Some curlies with sensitive scalp have faced little dryness and flakiness with this shampoo. If you have any scalp issues, I would suggest you not to use this one.
I am totally in love with this shampoo. If you are looking for a sulfate-free shampoo and do not want to break your bank, then you can go for this!! Gives clean hair and doesn’t strip hair of its natural oils. If you are looking for a cost-effective shampoo (it is always on discount) to start your Curly-Girl Method journey with, then this is the one you need to start with!! 🙂 But if you have sensitive scalp, you should be keeping away from this. Many of my readers with sensitive scalp told me this. (See your feedback helps so much!)
