Brocato Curlinterrupted Smoothing & Hydrating Shampoo + Treatment Review

2 of the most awaited products along with my May Velvette Box was the Brocato Curlinterrupted Smoothing & Hydrating Shampoo+ Conditioner. As a girl with dry and frizzy hair, I was quite excited to use this duo.

Packaging: 61.5 ml Shampoo in a white medicine like bottle. with a nice flip cover. The treatment comes in a 48.8ml tube with a flip cover.

Price: Both Rs 375( € 4.85).I received it along with a full sized lipstick worth Rs 700(€9.05) + a balm worth Rs 695(€8.98) all only for 399(€5.16)

Product Description: Made in U.S.A. this product is a part of an 100% organic hair treatment range, that contains a considerable amount of active keratin that softens and smoothens any kind of coarse or fizzy or curly hair.

Procedure:
Shampoo: Apply to wet hair. Lather. Rinse. Repeat.

Treatment: After cleansing with shampoo,apply treatment to wet hair and work through from scalp to ends. For more intense conditioning, cover with a plastic cap and leave in hair for 20 minutes. Rinse well.

My Opinion: I liked the white creamy texture of the shampoo. True it does not lather so fast but it surely cleanses well. The smell is light and soft. I have very thin and fizzy hair. I needed to repeat it twice as instructed on the leaflet. After the wash my hair really felt soft. And as I get a lot of hairfall whenever I use any new product I was a bit scared initially, however, it did not aggravate the condition. I liked the way my hair felt after using it.

On the other hand I was quite disappointed with the treatment. First because of the quality of the tube which was so fragile that when I tried to squeeze out the product from the cap, it cracked from behind and instead of coming out of the flip cap, the product came out of the crack. The consistency of the product is very thick, almost like a toothpaste. The smell is same as the shampoo. Instead of leaving it for 20 minutes, I left it on my hair for 5 minutes. I did not find any noticeable change after that. It felt the same as it felt after shampooing. I may have to try the 20 minutes treatment.

Pros:
1. Shampoo is quite effective
2. Hydrates hair well
3. Softens hair considerably
4. Smell is light and not overpowering

Cons:
1. Does not lather
2. Does not make the hair smooth
3. Treatment was not effective
4. Treatment packaging was not up to the mark
5. Consistency was pretty thick

My Verdict:
Shampoo: Hit
Conditioner: Average
