Druide Goat Milk Shampoo

March 3, 2009

A pH balanced, biodegradable goat milk based shampoo rich in milk and rice proteins.

“With its high content in repairing proteins from goats milk and rice, plus protective moringa, this daily shampoo will balance and strengthen your hair”.

  • For normal hair
  • Biodegradable
  • pH 5.5

The first thing that struck me about Druide Goat Milk shampoo was the density – but instead of being thick and greasy it was almost ‘drier’ than most shampoos, almost as if I could feel tiny particles of almond and rice . The consistency of the shampoo was great for dry hair as it kept the frizz away without weighing it down or leaving a greasy residue like many moisturising shampoos do. I needed to rinse my hair quite alot to get all the product out – I think it would be okay to use if you have greasy hair but just make sure you rinse it out well.

This shampoo contains very mild natural foamers like lauryl glucoside, so it didn’t produce a massive amount of lather, but just enough to make it feel like it was cleaning my hair.

The almond in this product makes it smell like cherry bakewells – ideal if you have a sweet tooth or don’t want something that smells traditionally natural and herbal. Although the almond smell is quite strong, the product doesn’t contain any synthetic fragrance, so it’s all natural!

I’ve been very impressed with how long this shampoo has lasted me. I only need to use a 10p sized amount for my below shoulder length hair, so it’s very economical.

The price is good value for money as it works better than some shampoos I have paid double the price for.

Summary

  • Pros: Smells great, keeps frizz under control
  • Cons: Quite dense, needs to be rinsed out thoroughly
