The Sulphate Free Argan Shampoo from Aaranyaa has so much going for it that it’s hard to criticise – it’s sulphate-free yet lathers unbelievably well, meaning that you don’t need to use very much product with each wash. I know that there was a bit of a ‘lather backlash’ in recent years (a good lather does NOT mean a good shampoo, blah blah blah) but we all love a good lather. Don’t we?
A shampoo that fails to lather, that just sits upon the hair like phlegm, is no fun. It’s a frustration. That might be just my personal view, but I’d put money on there being other people that secretly (or publicly!) feel the same way. Who wants a shampoo that takes eight hours to massage in? And then never properly washes the hair, which means that you end up smelling like a wet dog?
The Argan Shampoo lathers. It lathers and it foams and it feels like a cross between a shampoo and a conditioner – silky smooth, bouncy, luscious, clean-rinsing and moisturising. This is one of my favourite shampoos for a long, long time. It lathers yet it has the same gentle effect on the hair and scalp – brilliant for those with coloured or chemically treated hair and for anyone who is sensitive to SLS. I’m not in any way sensitive to sulphates, but I like the idea that SLS-free hair products might be a little kinder to my hair – if you’ve had a toner or semi-permanent tint put into your hair then you could find that SLS-free shampoos prolong the colour slightly.
