Hello gorgeous ladies! I am back with another review – Dabur Vatika Ultra Shine and Smooth Shampoo Review. Don’t we all vie for those enviable glossy, lustrous and shiny locks that catch everyone’s eyes around? Shiny tresses are an indication of proper care and timely nourishment. While there are myriad home remedies when it comes to pampering our crowning glory such as- Curd (yogurt), fenugreek seeds/leaves, herbal hair care powders, but shampooing is also indispensable. Sometimes, a few herbal ingredients get stuck in our tresses removing which is a Herculean task. So, to facilitate the removal of those tidbits of the hair pack and to effectively cleanse our scalp, shampoos are pivotal.
Today, I will share my experience of using Dabur Vatika Ultra Shine and Smooth Shampoo. The following write -up is my personal experience, so it may very well be the case that the product may have worked for you in the past or could work for you. It may also turn out to be simply disastrous so please do not base your decision solely on my personal experience. Everyone has different experiences and unless you come across a sizable number of people sharing the same view about a product, kindly do not generalize 🙂 Anyway, now let us formally commence with the Dabur Vatika Ultra Shine and Smooth Shampoo Review 🙂

What Dabur Vatika Ultra Shine and Smooth Shampoo claims
Naturally enhances the shine of rough and dull hair.
My experience with Dabur Vatika Ultra Shine and Smooth Shampoo
Dabur Vatika Ultra Shine and Smooth Shampoo?comes in different sized bottles and the design of the cap varies accordingly. I have purchased the smallest vraiant and the cap is pathetic. It may be sturdy hence, travel-friendly but opening the cap to draw out the shampoo is a tedious affair. Sometimes, you really have to exert a lot of force to open the cap and this will become all the more strenuous while having a bath!
So, all in all, the product’s packaging is disappointing. And for those who look for fancy outer packagings/illustrations, this one is anything but eye-catching!
The texture of Dabur Vatika Ultra Shine and Smooth Shampoo is light green but the smell is irritating. It is highly artificial and might not find takers among those who have a sensitive nose. At best, I can compare the smell to that of the watter in a gutter! Thankfully, it doesn’t stay long. I had oiled my hair like I always do the night before my hair washing session, applied a thick layer of curd mixed with fenugreek powder in the morning lavishly on my hair, kept it for an hour and then washed it off using this shampoo. One wash was sufficient to remove all the oil and residues of the curd and fenugreek hair pack but it didn’t impart any shine or smoothness to my tresses which it claimed.
I know it is unfair to gauge the effectiveness of any shampoo within the first attempt but I tried Dabur Vatika Ultra Shine and Smooth Shampoo four times and still, could not notice anything remotely praiseworthy. While it cleansed my scalp and removed all the oil/residues, it didn’t deliver on its claims. My hair type is dry and I needed to condition it post washing. So those with extremely dry hair necessarily have to follow-up with a conditioner in my opinion. Somewhere, I think that for oily hair, it is way too mild and one wash won’t be sufficient to remove the oil. Normal hair may find it okay. And yes, the ‘gutter wali smell’ vanishes within an hour or two of washing given you haven’t soaked your hair in the shampoo.
Dabur Vatika Ultra Shine and Smooth Shampoo didn’t work on my dry hair at all. It isn’t the case that it ruined my hair but it didn’t do anything substantial that would have caught my eye and compelled me to re-purhcase it. I don’t find it suitable for dry /extremely dry hair as they’d have to necessarily follow-up with a conditioner and for oily hair, I think it is too mild to remove all the oil. Normal hair can use it but I doubt its claim to elicit any noticeable results. All in all, as per my experience, it is a dud and I won’t recommend it to anyone. Dabur Vatika Henna and olive shampoo is a better bet anyday in comparison to this dud.
