I’m sure you must have seen the TV advertisement of Pure Derm Anti Dandruff shampoo. So did I! And the huge claims made me purchase it instantly, obviously for the review. Here we are, after months of usage, a detailed Pure Derm Anti Dandruff Shampoo Review – Mint Cool & Anti Hair Fall variant.
Product Name: Pure Derm Anti Dandruff Shampoo. I have got 2 variants – Mint Cool & Anti Hair Fall.
Price & Quantity: It retails for INR 65 for 80 ml (Anti Hair Fall) and INR 135 for 180 ml (Mint Cool)
Shelf Life: Best before 24 months from the date of manufacturing.
Packaging & Appearance It comes in a white colored cylindrical bottle with push open mechanism. Details are mentioned on the package. It’s not travel friendly as there are chances of spillage. But the small bottle looks easy to carry around.
The shampoo has a medium consistency, and appears to have blue hues to it. I also noticed bubbles in there.
Ingredients: In the image below.
Claims I purchased Pure Derm because of their huge claim of dandruff won’t returning back. Apart from that, they also claim –
• Oxy Fused Micro Bubble Technology
• Long lasting freshness against Dandruff & grease
• Re-energizes your scalp
• No visible flakes with regular usage
Smell: Mint Cool has a fragrance similar to mint, which is kind of refreshing and pleasant. The other one, has a slight herbal aroma, maybe to show the presence of Rosemary and Tea Tree.
Swatch: In the image below.
My Experience: I purchased these shampoos for a sole reason – so that dandruff won’t return. So how did it work for me? Did the Dandruff bid adieu? Have we broken up? Coming right up!
First, I’m gonna talk about the Mint Cool variant. It’s pretty good, lathers into a rich white foam. Due to the presence of mint, it provides a cool and refreshing sensation to your scalp.
Other variant, I don’t like the fragrance but it’s fine too. Same as Minty Cool minus the minty effect and plus the non pleasant fragrance. This one contains goodness of Rosemary and Tea Tree.
I’ve an oily/combination scalp which gets oily/greasy if I don’t wash them twice/thrice a week. Due to this, dandruff loves my scalp. Generally, I’ve slight dandruff in summer which is deep rooted and almost invisible. I have a favorite anti-dandruff shampoo which I totally love. It does the job of removing the dandruff. So, I use it once a week alongside any another shampoo; I keep switching between them.
Since I have slight dandruff which is mostly on my scalp, I gently massage the shampoo on to the scalp and let it sit there for 10 minutes or so. Then I wash it off. Pure Derm works fine, my dandruff did go away (as always). But it also returned back like it never went away! This shampoo also does a great job of cleaning, so yay for that.
Talking about the anti hair fall variant, I used it continuously for weeks, no switching of shampoos, but I saw no difference in my hair fall. I don’t have much of a hair fall problem, but it didn’t help me with whatever I’ve.
When I take proper care of my hair and do boring stuff like hair pack, oiling, massaging, etc; my scalp is healthy and clean. Hence my hair is mostly dandruff free. But for the time when I’m being lazy, I already have a favorite anti-dandruff shampoo.
So, my dandruff did go away as they claimed, but mind you I’ve slight dandruff only in summer. It also returned back due to the heat and greasy scalp. Then, they also mention that dandruff will go away upon regular usage. So, as long as you’re using it, it will stay away, obviously.
Anti hair fall didn’t work for me. Apart from that, I love the Mint Cool one, it’s so good for summer! I’m so glad that I have a small bottle of the former.
I didn’t use conditioner afterwards, as I wanted to test these babies. They don’t claim to do anything for smooth hair. And turned out, it’s good they didn’t! My hair looked rough after 2 days or so. But I also used it alongside a conditioner and there wasn’t any such problem. I just wanted to put this out here.
• Removed dandruff
• Mint Cool is minty & refreshing
• Cleanse hair properly
• Nice fragrance of Mint Cool
• Didn’t like the aroma of Anti Hair Fall one
• Didn’t work for hair fall
• Dandruff came back
Jhalli Diva Verdict: 2/5 for Anti Hair Fall & 4/5 for Mint Cool
Will I Repurchase?
Maybe, if I do, it’s Mint Cool.
Do I Recommend?
Yes, do try Mint Cool. Although, I don’t think it will work for heavy dandruff.
Overall Summary: I don’t have much to say about it other than what I have already said. If it would not have been for Mint Cool, this review would have me just complaining, lol!
