Herbal Essences Dangerously Straight Shampoo Review

Good Evening buddies! I am reviewing a shampoo in this post which I have been using now and then for a past few months. It's one of the shampoo from Herbal Essences brand called the "Dangerously Straight Silky and Straight Shampoo" Let us see few lines about the brand first (As per their site). "WANT TO KNOW ABOUT US? then you should know we’re all about hair. not just how your hair looks, but how it feels, smells and, most importantly, how it makes you feel. whether it’s lusciously soft, totally twisted or long and strong, hair is an expression. hair is an experience. it’s time to experience Herbal hair." What is running on your mind now? Is it a shampoo that straightens hair!!?? Right isn't it? So, now let us move on to my review and know more about this shampoo with its PROS and CONS.

Price: Rs. 148 for 300ml; Rs.90 for 160 ml

This smooth shampoo lays down fly-aways for silky-softness that’s totally touchable. 

My Views and Ratings

The Packaging
This shampoo comes in a cute pink coloured plastic bottle with a press type cap. The bottle is semi transparent and hence it is easier to find out how much shampoo is left inside. Luckily, the whole pack is firm and travel friendly. An another plus is that, the bottle is re-usable. I am planning to fill my homemade body lotion after the shampoo gets over :P Overall, the packaging is pretty good. 

Colour, Consistency and Fragrance
The consistency of the shampoo is normal to runny, while it has a baby pink colour which looked so cute. The shampoo is creamy, smooth and lovable to use, especially the kids in your home will long for it. The shampoo lathers pretty good and washes out easily. It has a very floral and refreshing fragrance. No bad I see in this part too.

How it Works
There is no such thing called the straightening effect in this shampoo actually. For the price, I didn't expect straightening and all but still I would say they named the product wrong. But other than that, the shampoo cleanses out oil, dirt, pollution and brings out the lustrous hair. My hair becomes smooth, soft even without a conditioner however rough and dry scalps will have to use it along with a good nourishing conditioner. I didn't experience any abnormal hair fall or dandruff while using this shampoo and overall, its a good shampoo for regular use, but don't expect straightening effects. It may make your hair look little straight with its softening effects, but not surely parlor straight.
3.5/5 (-1.5 for wrong naming, or else would have given full ratings)

  1. Lovely packaging. Cute, Sturdy and Travel friendly.
  2. Semi transparent bottle helps to find out how much is left in the bottle.
  3. Comes in a dirt cheap price.
  4. Makes her soft, smooth and light. It doesn't weigh down hair.
  5. No side affects such as abnormal hair fall or dandruff.
  6. Lathers pretty enough and washes off easily.
  7. Because of the pinky-pinky colour, it would attract all the kids.
  8. Lovely floral fragrance which stays all day long. Gives a refreshing feel.
  9. Perfect for everyday use.
  1. No such thing called the "Straightening Effect". This cant be taken as a con for the price though.
