Phew! Cobwebs everywhere on this blog! It’s been ages since I last updated it..
So hi there! If there is still anyone reading this *krik* *krik*
Today, I would like to do a *honest* review of hijabi shampoos available in Malaysia!
I bought three brands of anti hair fall hijabi shampoos to see if they help with the reduction of hair fall in comparison to normal hair fall shampoos.
Contender no 1!! Ding ! Ding ! The oh so famous Sunsilk Hijab Recharge!
Packed with Ginseng, “Fragrance release pearls” and Hydrolysed Wheat Protein to strengthen your hair and prevent breakage.
Pros: I don’t need to use conditioner with this shampoo (saves time, money and effort!). When I blow dry it, it still gives my hair a nice soft lightweight feeling.
Cons: A bit on the pricey side. The smell doesn’t last long, especially if you have your scarf on and it’s hot outside. It does not help with hair fall…at all.
The next one is, Safi Shayla!
Safi Shayla is enriched with Habbatus Sauda (Nigella Sativa) which contains many health benefits. It’s supposed to help with improved functions of our regulatory system (Brain and Nerve function) and aids in cures for Asthma, Psoriasis, Toothpain, Flu and more.
Pros: Really affordable! Has a visible certified halal label at the back so you won’t need to feel doubtful.
Cons: It works just like normal shampoo. Does not really reduce hair fall. Sometimes (not all the time) makes my hair more oily than it needs to be which is a bit annoying.
Finally, Hijabista shampoos!
Created by “experts” C.Michael London. Hijabista promises that it keeps hair fresh for up to 48 hours. Containing Shea Butter and Apple Stem Cell, Anti-aging, PhyToCellTec.
Pros: Is not tested on animals and paraben-free! It also has Shea Butter! Which is always awesome because Shea butter moisturises and reduces inflammation and has an unlimited amount of health benefits. The smell is really strong and stays on for days (2 and a half days for me, it really did!), even after I blow-dried my hair or had my scarf on through out the day.
Cons: Pricey. Makes my hair really, really frizzy when I blow dry it. I’ve heard (and read) about Apple Stem Cells, and found out that new research argues that they don’t really work! Also this shampoo doesn’t really aid in lessening hair fall either!
So all-in-all, my verdict would be that Hijabi Shampoos are a bit of a gimmick because their effectiveness is less than or similar to shampoos you can get on the shelf at the supermarket….or maybe it’s just the Hijabi shampoos here in Malaysia.
Hmmm..I wonder if there are any Hijabi shampoos available in other countries? Give me a comment below if there are so I can check them out and give them a try!
In the mean time, you can check out my review of these shampoos here:
And if you would like to give these Malaysian hijabi shampoos a try (they might not work for me, but they could work for you) send me an e-mail and I would be very happy to assist you on attaining them!
Lots of love,
