Oriflame Love Nature Wheat and Coconut Shampoo Review

Guest Post
I have been using Oriflame Love Nature Wheat and Coconut Shampoo from quiet a long time now. Usual shampoos like Dove, Sunsilk, Pantene do not give me the desired results and hence I came across shampoos by Oriflame.


About Oriflame
Oriflame is a Swedish cosmetic company. The brand has nature inspired beauty products and their presence is in more than 60 countries. Their selling policy is quite different. You can purchase the products through appointed marketing agents only. There is no way to get the products directly from any shop. You have to go through the agents only. You won’t find brand’s flagship store anywhere.

This was a big hit in 90’s and 2000’s with a flood of lots of such brands. Many brands had targeted even doctors to promote the personal care products. Yes, even doctors were selling products to their patients and friends. Ladies found business in their kitty parties and social gatherings. But after the online shopping evolution in India, Oriflame hasn’t changed the policy. In fact almost none of the brands have. It is the biggest issue to avid online shoppers like me. You get this some products by the brand online during random deals though.

About Love Nature
Love Nature range by Oriflame is inspired by nature. The range has natural organic extracts and the products are completely free from paraben. All the rinse off products from this range are biodegradable, natural exfoliants and free from silicones. The bottles used are made from 40% recycled plastic. This is truly commendable!

About Oriflame Love Nature Wheat and Coconut Shampoo
This creamy shampoo with natural Wheat and Coconut oil gently cleanses hair and helps to combat dryness and future damage. Biodegradable formulation.



Packaging, Texture & Fragrance
Oriflame Love Nature Wheat and Coconut Shampoo comes in transparent bottle with white flip cap. It is quiet easy to take off the shampoo and see the quantity as the bottle is transparent. The bottle is sturdy and easy to travel with.
Shampoo is opaque off white in colour and the texture is thick just like any normal shampoo and the fragrance is of sweet tender coconut which is not overpowering.

My Experience
I take some shampoo and mix with water to generate lather. I use the foam on scalp and hair to cleanse. The shampoo is very mild. If I have done slight oiling, it takes it off very easily but if I have done champi or heavy oiling, my hair look fresh and scalp thoroughly cleansed but I do face itchiness. It is because the shampoo cannot take off everything on its own.

Oriflame Love Nature Wheat and Coconut Shampoo lathers less than normal shampoos so I end up using it more. With each wash I do get soft and cleansed hair but conditioner is required if you have dry hair. In case I overuse the shampoo, I do get very dry and unmanageably tangled hair.

Ingredients
AQUA, SODIUM LAURETH SULFATE, GLYCERIN, COCAMIDOPROPYL BETAINE, SODIUM CHLORIDE, COCO-GLUCOSIDE, LAURETH-3, GLYCOL DISTEARATE, PARFUM, CITRIC ACID, SODIUM BENZOATE, GUAR HYDROXYPROPYLTRIMONIUM CHLORIDE, SODIUM LAUROYL SARCOSINATE, SODIUM CITRATE, 2-BROMO-2-NITROPROPANE-1,3-DIOL, SODIUM HYDROXIDE, COCOS NUCIFERA OIL, HYDROLYZED WHEAT PROTEIN, PHENOXYETHANOL, CI 16035, CI 19140, CI 42090

Price & Availability
The shampoo is priced at 369 INR for 250ml bottle but it is often sold at discounted price which is around 250 INR . Availability of Oriflame products is the biggest issue. You have to rely either on certain websites or brand’s authorised members as they believe in direct selling. You can get it though amazon or flipkart during sale offers.

Pros
  • Affordable
  • Mild shampoo
  • Good for dry to normal to hair types if slightly oiled  
  • Good for dry to normal to hair types with no oiling or mild oiling
  • Free from paraben and silicones
Cons
  • Availability is the biggest issue
  • Lathers less
  • Contains SLS, artificial colours and fragrance
  • Does not cleanse heavily oiled hair
Recommendation
Oriflame Love Nature Wheat and Coconut Shampoo is free from paraben but it does contain the controversial  irritant SLS. The shampoo is not clean but something better than very strong or harsh shampoos. I would recommend it to normal to dry hair types only. If you have very dry hair, this would not be the right choice. Also, it is very mild shampoo so it isn’t effective on heavily oiled hair. If you are eyeing only clean and SLS free, artificial colour and fragrance free shampoo, you may skip this.
