cHiccO No-Tears Shampoo (SLS/SLES free budget shampoo) - Review

Saturday, April 18, 2015

I have been following no-poo techniques since 2012, yes I have been sulphate free on my hair since then. Once I did order Bragg's Apple Cider Vinegar to condition my hair. But I just could not bear the stinky smell. I have been using the TBS Rainforest Range which is the best organic shampoo available in the market, but honestly that is more on a splurge item for me. So I keep my searches on for a cheap alternative.
I am reviewing today the Chicco No-tears Shampoo and No, I am not pretending to be a baby here. But what a girl to do when she is kinda low on budget and nothing else will do else but a sulphate free shampoo so she hits the kids section of super market. And what she finds a budget sulphate free shampoo.


Did it really fair on adult hair?!! Lets find out ...


This is No PARABENS, No SLS or SLES, Dyes and alcohol free ( you are having a WOW moment aren't you ). Clinically tested on sensitive skins. Hypoallergenic (formulated to minimize the risk of skin allergies). There is no claim for this product to be cruelty free though. This does contain Pot Marigold (Calendula) as a softening agent. The pot marigold moisturizes the hair and prevent the formation of tangles. 
Disodium-laureth-sulfosuccinate is used in place of SLS/SLES and according to researchers this compound is safe to be used, as the molecules are larger and cannot penetrate through skin. And if it is safe for babies then it is safe for me too.
The shampoo is transparent liquid and smells floral. Though the direction of use say to use the undiluted product, but I take around 5 ml of quantity and mix it with 3 parts of water and pour it at different place over my scalp, message in circular motion with my finger tips to form lather and then rinse off. Being sulphate free this lathers up pretty well. I don't particularly put product down the length of my hair. This shampoo is quite gentle to used on every alternate days. It does removes oil and dirt effectively. 
The most amazing thing that I have noticed is it did keep my scalp healthy and dandruff free. I did notice that when I use SLS containing shampoos, my dandruff is back. If you are suffering from dandruff then I highly recommend that you switch to a sulphate free shampoo.

Price: Rs 199/-

Availability: Online, Supermarket, Pharmacy.

The Goodies:

  • SLS/SLES free.
  • Parabens free.
  • Dyes and alcohol free.
  • Very gentle and lathers well.
  • Keeps scalps healthy and does not cause any irritation.
The Baddies:
  • Does not condition adult hair. After shampoo conditioner is a must.
  • Does not control hair fall.
Hence: If you want a decent sulphate free shampoo which does not cost you a bomb, then you can definitely give this a go. I keep on trying SLS/SLES free shampoos on and off, but somehow I keep on returning back to this. I can not count how many bottles of this I have finished.



Love and stay colorful,
