Hello my pretties!
Pune weather has been wreaking havoc on my husband’s unruly dry hair & he wanted something to smoothen & hydrate his hair without clogging his scalp & increasing dandruff. I came across a lot of positive reviews for this shampoo online & decided to get it for him & we both have been using it for the last 2-3 weeks & more. Read on to know how it fared 🙂

My take on the Palmer’s Olive Oil Formula Smoothing Shampoo-
The shampoo comes in a huge flat rounded bottle with a flip-top cap & olive green accents. It is sturdy & easy to use but not at all travel friendly owing to the bulky 400 ml size.
The shampoo is pearly pale green in color with a runny consistency & foams up quite well even on oiled hair unlike many sulphate free shampoos, It cleans my hair & scalp completely of all dirt & oil in 2 washes & gets rinsed off easily without leaving behind any slippery/greasy feel.
After my hair dried, my hair looked soft & healthy with a nice shine & my frizz was largely tamed without my fine hair being weighed down. It did make my hair greasy faster over the next couple of days though which accelerated the need to wash my hair :-/ On my husband’s very rough, dry hair though, it worked like a charm & left his hair soft & smooth without any issue like mine.
The shampoo has quite a strong olive like fragrance which I don’t care much for. Thankfully, it does not linger.
Pros of the Palmer’s Olive Oil Formula Smoothing Shampoo:
1> Sturdy flattened bottle packaging with flip-top cap.
2> Foams up well into a soft lather & easy to rinse off with no slippery feel.
3> Cleans hair & scalp well without stripping the natural oils.
4> Hair is left hydrated, shiny & healthy with frizz controlled.
5> Free from all harmful chemicals.
Cons of the Palmer’s Olive Oil Formula Smoothing Shampoo:
Not travel friendly.
Makes my oily scalp greasy faster.

My Rating: 4.5/5!
Do I recommend the Palmer’s Olive Oil Formula Smoothing Shampoo?
Palmer’s Olive Oil Formula Smoothing Shampoo is the perfect shampoo for rough, dry unmanageable hair who need a shampoo free from all harmful chemicals ^_^ It hydrates hair, smoothens out frizz & makes it look healthy 🙂 On fine hair like mine though, my scalp gets greasy faster due to the moisture & I have to rotate with some other shampoo to keep the balance.
