Review : Apivita Balancing Shampoo for very oily hair

I recently placed an order with Pharmapoli and since I have extremely oily hair I “have” to try several different shampoos in order to find the one that works for me. I’ve heard nice things about Apivita’s Propoline Balancing Shampoo for Very Oily Hair with Peppermint & Propolis, so I went ahead and got it.

Let’s start with the packaging as always! This shampoo comes in a simple dark brown plastic bottle that holds 250ml (8.5 fl.oz) of product. The bottle is pretty basic, there’s nothing super fancy about it, but I think it’s cute anyway and I like the fact that I can see how much product I have left, since it’s see through . Here’s what it looks like : 

The shampoo is clear and quite thick, so you don’t need to use a lot of product. It has a nice, fresh scent thanks to the peppermint that it contains. I have to wash my hair everyday, but I don’t use this shampoo everyday. It’s not a harsh shampoo, but still.. I don’t want to completely strip my hair. I use it about 4 times a week and it works really well, without irritating my scalp. It controls oiliness and it deep cleans my hair, leaving it lightweight, soft and shiny. No, it’s not a miracle product, it won’t allow me to wash every other day (I’d wish lol), but it keeps my super oily hair in a decent condition for longer than other shampoos.

Another great thing about this shampoo that I’d like to point out is that it’s made with 81% natural ingredients and it does NOT contain the following bad stuff : parabens, silicones, mineral oil, propylene glycol, ethanolamines, colorants, phthalates, polycyclic musks, nitromusks. Wait, there’s more lol! The shampoo is contained in a recycled PET bottle, which is a huge plus for me, as I recycle like crazy and I totally support recycling.

I got my bottle from Pharmapoli for 9.70, but of course you can get this shampoo in most pharmacies that sell Apivita products. I think it’s totally worth the money, because it does control the oiliness to some extend. I recently tried another shampoo for very oily hair from a different brand (review coming soon), which was much smaller (200ml) and more expensive than Apivita (almost 12) and it didn’t work as well as this one. So, I will definitely repurchase this amazing shampoo by Apivita.
