Madara Gloss and Vibrancy Shampoo

Hello,
how are you? Today I am reviewing a Madara GLOSS AND VIBRANCY SHAMPOO. I am sorry to say that but this shampoo is a big NO NO for me. It basically irritated my scalp so badly that I got dandruff:(.

But let me say a few words about Madara company. Madara is a Latvian company producing natural and ecological cosmetics. They have ECOCERT certificate. Their cosmetics are not tested on animals and they are trying to obtain a Leaping Bunny certificate. They are using recycled packaging materials. I actually like their packaging a lot: it is mainly green or white, minimalistic yet elegant.

But back to the shampoo. The producer claims that Gloss and Vibrancy Shampoo will clean the hair in a gentle way. The hair will be protected and it will have more volume. It will also become stronger, silkier and shiny. Ehem...
For best results they recommend to use this shampoo with Madara Gloss and Vibrancy Conditioner which I have bought as well. I am going to write a review about it later.
Why did I buy Madara  Gloss and Vibrancy Shampoo? Mainly because I have read good reviews about it. I remember that one of the bloggers wrote that this shampoo has even helped them with oily scalp. I was sold:). I had really high hopes for  this shampoo. Other thing is that Madara is quite popular here in Finland.

After the first application my scalp felt really irritated, it became  itchy and the skin started to peel. I didn't want to believe that this was happening because of the Madara's shampoo. I was trying to convince myself that this was normal, that the shampoo was removing some buildup from the scalp. Only I was not really sure what kind of buildup that would be because I  use neither styling products nor silicons.
Full of hope I washed my hair again- the same thing happened: itchy scalp and dandruff. All together I have tried six times and it always made my head itchy (and scratchy:)) and gave me a lot of dandruff. 
I have stopped using Madara  Gloss and Vibrancy Shampoo but it took some time for my scalp to eventually calm down.
Why it all has happened? I think because this shampoo cleanses the hair TOO well, in a rather aggressive wayThis is all quite ironic because producer says that this shampoo will clean your hair in a gentle way. Instead you get the hair stripped of natural, protective oils ( but it is indeed clean, squeaky clean).
The only nice thing about this shampoo is its smell. 
A quick summary:
Pros:

  • nice fresh smell
Cons:

  • irritated my scalp enormously
  • gave me dandruff
  • tangled the hair 
  • the price-over 12 euros
I do not recommend Gloss and Vibrancy Shampoo from Madara at all. It does nothing good to the hair, on the contrary it may irritate your scalp and give you dandruff. Better save yourself the money, and save yourself the disappointment.
