Hello gorgeous,

I am a fan of herbal preparations. I own a herbal brand called Minty herbs. As I have become a new mommy, I do not find time to prepare my products. So I decided to try out other herbal products available in the market till I resume my business. So, ladies forgive me for taking so much time to be back on track. I ‘ll keep you updated without any delay.

We all must be familiar of the goodness of Shikakai. But did you know that it is called as “fruit of hair”? Yes, it does justice to its name and keeps the hair healthy and glossy. An oil massage followed by a Shikakai wash is indescribable. How cool it keeps your scalp and helps in growth of new hair. Today I am going to review V Care herbal shikakai paste.

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION: Vcare Shikkakai paste is a revolution in the Hair Care Industry combining the goodness of Shikakai and the ease of use of the paste form. Soy protein is a good nourishing agent that strengthens your hair. Pro vitamin B5 nourishes, moisturizes and conditions your hair. Completely removes dirt and dust. Nourishes your hair and makes your hair look healthy.

USAGE DIRECTIONS: Take sufficient quantity in hand, dilute with water and apply to your hair and scalp. Massage for 5minutes and then rinse with warm water.


V care is a well known brand for its range of hair care products. I am a big fan of their Herbal hair wash powder which is purely divine. As I liked that product, I wanted to try out their readymade shikakai paste.

It comes in wide tube packaging, which happens to be brown in colour. The tube is travel friendly, doesn’t leak. The shikakai paste has a thick consistency and is dark brown in colour, resembling shikakai. The smell is pathetic. It smells nothing like a herbal paste. It smells strongly of chemical preservatives, which I couldn’t stand.

The paste is very thick and one would have to dilute with little water before applying to hair. For long hair beauties, you might need a lot of this product. It lathers pretty well which is impossible with shikakai. So the doubt arises, if lathering agents have been added. A lot of quantity is required to remove medium oiled hair. For a weekly hair wash, this tube will hardly last a month and might seem quite hard on the pocket.  

Post washing hair felt soft and glossy but only for a few hours. Then hair started looking dry and frizzy.. There was no good smell on hair. It just didn’t smell anything herbal. The next day scalp started to itch.. I dint encounter hair fall but it gave Me dryness. I so regret buying this for my already dry hair. However oily hair beauties might be really benefited by this product as it would just remove the extra oil. However if you want to try out herbal methods for your hair. Please buy V care herbal hair wash mix which is just divine and it can’t be compared to the paste. Read more here :http://blushbeautyblush.com/v-care-herbal-hair-wash-conditioner-review/

Please give it a try and let me know if it worked for you.
