Mantra is an initiative of the Baidyanath Group, a name synonymous with Ayurveda since 1917. While still a personal care product, the Mantra range has a very high percentage of active Ayurvedic herbs which when formulated for specific purposes have shown great promise in addressing those concerns. Every product in the range is a unique experience – a journey towards true beauty.

The product is packed in a pump up bottle with a small plastic cap to close the pump up. The plastic cap is very loose and comes of easily. Also the pump up nozzle hole is very small and we need to relentlessly pump up the hair cleanser for the desired quantity for usage.
Now coming to the fragrance and results of the hair cleanser, the fragrance is a lot like an incense stick and consistency is a bit thick. The hair cleanser doesn't dispense easily in the bottle itself. The hair cleanser lather quite good even in Bangalore hard water. The hair cleanser doesn't dry out your hair ever. I used it for around 2 months and am about to finish it.
The hair cleanser doesn't wash it the oil from hair, natural oil or the one applies before night. It cleanses the scalp nicely without overtly drying it, and doesn't show any effect on dandruff. But I didn't have any problem with it not working on dandruff because it doesn't claim to reduce one. It makes the hair soft and smooth since it doesn't wash out the oil basically. If you oil your hair and wash, the hair will be left a bit oily but thoroughly cleaned. If you have dry hair, and don't like applying oil, then you will need a conditioner for sure.
Now the major concern of All, it highly reduces the amount of hair you lose in the shower. I am highly impressed by this quality of the shampoo and I would highly recommend the Mantra Herbals Hair cleanser for this sole reason. Some might find it bit pricey, but no amount is greater than the mane!!! Moreover it is free from parabens, SLES and other chemicals which harm the hair more than anything.
