Urtekram Rose Shampoo

Urtekram rose shampoo is one of the products I bought from It is suitable for all hair types and is formulated using natural ingredients, much of which is organic.

The reason why I bought this was because I was looking for a natural shampoo with no SLS and this one had some good reviews from customers. It does contain Sodium Coco Sulfate instead, which some people wish to stay away from and some don't mind.

I must start with the smell of this shampoo. It smells beautifully of rose water. Since this product is completely natural, the scent doesn't come from any synthetic fragrances but from organic essential rose geranium oil.

The consistency of the shampoo is pretty much the same as any other shampoo except it's clear. However, it does not lather up as well as other shampoos. Some say that a shampoo does not need to lather in order for it to work, which I agree. But as my hair is long and thick the lather helps me get the shampoo all over my hair easily. So in this case I have had to use at least twice as much shampoo as I would normally use, making it less cost efficient. And at £4.69 it already costs a lot more than the average bottle.

It didn't leave my hair squeaky clean but if you don't get dandruff or you wash your hair quite frequently then I'd expect it to clean your hair very well.

I found that my hair was much softer afterwards without being greasy and I was very pleased with that. Other than that it was frizzy and my curls looked terrible.

Overall, I am pleased with some aspects of this product but it is not perfect for my hair type. If you have normal hair then give it a go. You might like it. But if your hair is anything like mine then save your money and get yourself a shampoo that is more specific for your hair type.
