Biotique Bio Sea Kelp Fresh Growth Revitalizing Conditioner

Hello Friends!
Today I am reviewing Biotique Bio Sea Kelp Conditioner which was gifted to me by my elder sister. I didn’t find any such review of this product on internet so thought to review it. So do read it to know my take on this product.

 Price- Rs 145 for 120 ml.

·         Intensive hair growth treatment
·         High in vitamins, nutrients and minerals
·         Has hair growth and strengthening properties
·         Nourishes scalp and retards hair loss

What the Company Says:
Kelp is cold water seaweed high in vitamins, nutrients and minerals, coveted throughout the ages for its hair growth and strengthening properties. This nourishing shampoo is a blend of pure kelp, natural proteins, peppermint oil and mint leaf extract, to gently cleanse hair and invigorate the scalp for fresh growth and healthier shine.

Direction for use:
Apply liberally to wet hair and work lather through strands, from scalp to ends. Rinse well with water.

This is not a cosmetic product. It has therapeutic properties.

Neem can relieve dry and itchy scalp, dandruff, the symptoms of scalp psoriasis, as well as giving you silky, shiny, stronger hair and encourage growth. It can even help with hair problems like hair loss and premature graying.

Tesu encourages Hair growth on scalp and hair root regains health and nourishment.

Daruhaldi prevents dandruff and cures inflammation on hair follicles.

Bhringraj is very useful to rejuvenate hair, hair loss, and baldness.

Reetha is also used for removing lice from the scalp, as it has gentle insecticidal properties. It is used as the main ingredient in soaps and shampoos for washing hair, as it is considered good for the health of hair. 

Sea Kelp is rich in Vitamin B Complex, zinc, iodine, magnesium. Sea kelp contains a variety of nutrients that may contribute to the overall health of your hair.

My Experience:
After having disastrous experience with Biotique Heena shampoo, I had severe hairfall and horrible scalp bumps)
I was quite apprehensive to use any other hair care product from this brand. The musk root pack also was bit drying for my hair. Even I didn’t much like their heena powder because the quantity was very less for Rs 200 and quality was just average. But as I got this as a gift, so thought to give it a try after seeing its awesome ingredients list, contains only herbals ingredients and no Dimethicone or other chemical. When I first used this conditioner, I found its fragrance to be a bit odd, It smells of Men’s after shave lotion. It is a gel based conditioner and not even very moisturizing. It didn’t help me in my hairfall problem that I was experiencing. However my hair was very shiny and looked much black than it is after using it. It didn’t weigh my hair down at all. It was overall an average product, but I like their Watercress hair salad conditioner a lot. You all may give that a try.

Pros of the product:
-Contains herbal ingredients such as Kelp, bhringraj, tesu, neem, all of which are highly acclaimed for their hair growth properties.
-Contains peppermint oil, which soothes nerves and is highly relaxing.
-It doesn’t contain Dimethicone.
-It is organically pure and preservative free.
-Not tested on animals.
-Does not cause hairfall.
-Imparts shiny and black appearance to hair
-Very reasonable price, Rs 145 for  120 ml.

Cons of the product:
-It is gel based thus more quantity is required.
-Is it really preservative free? I don’t think so!
-Am tired of hearing this claim of so called ‘Intensive hair growth treatment’ from popular shampoo brands. 
-Weird smell of  Men’s after shave lotion, totally turn off for me.
-How come the complete ingredient list of both shampoo and conditioner is same?

Will I Repurchase?? No Never.

Rating: 3

Overall  Recommendation: There are other better products than this, so I wont recommend this to you. You may try Biotique Water cress hair salad though.

  1. oops! a 50 50 kind of product. I have used their Hweatgerm shampoo which was a disaster to my hair and after that never went near their hair care range but I managed to try their green apple hair cleanser which is just awsome.. it suited my hair really well with nice fruity fragrance. You can try that if you want :)
