Top 10: Best Herbal Shampoos In India with Reviews, Price List

After all that mess with parabens and sulphates, our hair just wants something it can trust. We’re used to heat styling; curling, straightening, blow drying and the numerous products we put into our hair! Never forget the mousse, dry shampoo, hairspray etc. Of course, this damages our hair! How could it not? We then turn to things a bit more natural, how do we achieve that lustre in our hair without destroying it in the process? That’s where Herbal shampoos come in. These herbal shampoos are good for dry hair. They are a lot more natural than most shampoos on the market and a good chunk of them are made without any parabens or sulphates. I’ve collected the list of best herbal shampoos available in India and their prices

  • I have only tried the Himalaya one..yet to try the other one's..Would love to try the FabIndia one... :)

  • Psst. Did you know there are Hairstyling apps(yes they exist) to help you chose, create the right hairstyle. Would love to hear a bit about that.

    • I could look into that! Would be a great topic to explore. Thanks for the feedback.

  • I personally use most of the Patanjali line for my hair (my mother buys it all the time!) And i use the Patanjali Almond hair conditioner and kesh kanti shampoo which works great on my hair. Added tip: leave your conditioner in for 10 mins to really get your ends nourished. Make sure to shampoo only the scalp and condition the rest of your hair. Also, if your hair is like mine (dry, frizzy, wavy) then taking a bit of conditioner (say a tablespoon or 2) and mixing it with like 200 ml of water makes a good detangled and leave in conditioner.

  • antastic results and good for long hairs.i use On&On Maha Bhringraj Herbal Hair Oil and ELEMENTS COMPLETE CARE SHAMPOO

  • I was having very thick hair since my childhood but from three months my hairfall has increased tremendously ,weaker,itchy... Can u suggest me which shampoo is best for hairfall .am a student

  • Very poorly researched article. Most of the shampoos in the list aren't 100% natural. They contain plenty of harmful chemicals. They do not provide the complete list of ingredients and mention only the herbal actives used.

  • India is the first country who invent herbalshampoo in the world. After invention Britisher colonial took this formula to united kingdom and then the formula flourish to all over the world.
