Omved Brahmi and Peppermint Purifying Shampoo Review

Hello buddies! :) I know many of my readers are wary of chemical ingredients in their skin/hair care products and always look for natural alternatives. For those, I am going to review a shampoo from a brand which believes in pure natural living. It is Omved Brahmi and Peppermint Purifying Shampoo.

PRICE:  Rs.640 

QUANTITY: 200 ml 


Sorry for the blur in the image. I am listing the ingredients here,          

Purified water, decyl glucoside, sodium cocoyl glutamate, sodium cocoyl apple amino acid, hydrolyzed wheat & soy protein, tocopherol acetate (vit. E), extracts of aloe vera, brahmi, xantham gum, hibiscus & mandookparni, sodium benzoate, guar hydroxypropyltrimonium chloride, sodium benzyl alcohol, potassium sorbate, oils of lavender, grapefruit & peppermint.

  • Gentle plant-derived botanicals thoroughly cleanse without stripping or build-up     
  • Brahmi strengthens follicles & peppermint invigorates circulation     
  • Vit. E & aloe strengthen elasticity, making hair soft, strong and shiny
  • NO parabens, sulfates, silicones, petrochemicals, glycols, phthalates, synthetic colours or perfumes

MY EXPERIENCE: First let me give you some insight on the brand,  
Omved products are steeped in Ayurvedic wisdom, are based on the same herbal compounds and botanicals used by the ancients to enhance their beauty and well-being. The products are enriched with significant quantities of 100% natural "active extracts" and achieve exceptional skin that reflects health, beauty and harmony. Omved formulations are all - paraben-free, sulfate-free, petrochemical-free, artificial dye-free and synthetic-free, completely free of any unnatural and toxic ingredient. No animal extracts or ingredients of animal origin are used either in processing or in the finished product, and never will be.

Now coming to today's review, Omved Brahmi and Peppermint Purifying Shampoo comes in a sturdy bottle with a pump dispenser. The shampoo is runny in texture and colorless. It has got a strong peppermint fragrance, and if you have been on this blog for long you must know how much crazy I am for peppermint. Though on hair it doesn't smell of mint(thankfully!) but a subtle sweet smell, which might be of brahmi or the grapefruit, IDK

It doesn't strip hair of moisture, makes hair soft and shiny, and since one week I have been using it, I am seeing comparatively less hair breakage (my hairfall got aggravated due to the season change and now it is much better), though it doesn't claim to stop hairfall or anything. Sadly, it doesn't lather much and I require almost double the quantity I use, to shampoo my hair properly, hence it would finish up fast and the price being so high, it definitely hurts the pocket. Also, I feel as it is so gentle, it doesn't clarify the scalp much. So it would suit fine hair/dry scalp better than thick hair/oily scalp. Since I lie in between this range, I am neither too impressed nor too unhappy about it. 

  • A gentle shampoo that keep the moisture of the hair locked. 
  • Makes hair soft and shiny.
  • Noticed less hair breakage. 
  • Awesome peppermint smell, minus the cold sting.
  • Parabens and chemical free, and doesn't test on animals.
  • Effective and sturdy packaging.

  • Doesn't work on my frizz problem.
  • Doesn't clarify scalp.
  • Requires loads of shampoo to lather well.
  • The price.
  • Available only on selective websites and their own web store.

VERDICT: Those who follow and use natural, paraben free and chemical free ingredients, Omved has a lot to offer. If price isn't a factor for you, I would recommend this shampoo to all who have dry scalp, or thin/fine hair. It is gentle and effective and also curbs hair breakage to an extent. Hope my review helps. Let me know if you have tried this.

    1. it is a great product indeed...specially for those who like to use natural products. :)

  2. This looks great..especially for summers..I am always on search for such shampoos..

  3. I have been using the smaller size of this..and love the peppermint smell too..but ya needs loads to foam :/

  4. Thank you Pooja G, for the honest review. Although I am thrilled about the positive comments, I cannot resist but make a few points on the 'cons' (at the cost of defending Omved, - my company, my passion).
    For FRIZZY DRY hair I think you will find our shampoo for dry hair to work better.
    'doesn't CLARIFY SCALP' - well it should, I am suprised you had that experience. we used to carry a Tulsi Rosemary shampoo for oily hair but discontinued since customer feedback was this worked just as well for oily hair. Will carry out some more trials.
    Our shampoo formulations LATHER MILD due to the gentle 'non-stripping' pH balanced base. However you should require the same amount.
    Aah the PRICE, yes we agree, it is higher than the commercially available non-natural ones out there and we are striving hard on that front. Completely natural and safe ingredients are not in demand by most brands in India and therefore pricey. We are sure though, as consumers like yourself demand more for natural skin care products the prices will come down.
    To add a little bit - Omved is INDIA'S FIRST AND ONLY company to be recognised by the SAFE COSMETIC Pledge to have safe skincare formulations. We not only use 100% natural, vegan, crulty-free, non-toxic formulations but we take pride that they are safe (containing NONE of the thousands of harsh chemicals that are banned by them)!! Our bottling is also either made of food grade aluminium (100% recyclable) or coloured glass to preserve the purity of our extract and pure therapeutic grade essential oils.
    We are currently in our 'brand development' stage and have hence not expanded OUR REACH. Feedback from independent consumers and bloggers like yourself is critical for us, to perfect our products, improve our service and refine our message.
    Thank you once again.

    1. I appreciate your views. However, the points I mentioned are solely based on my experience and understanding and everyone have different hairtype and problems associated with it and react differently to the same product.

  5. I bought this shampoo but i donno how to open this! how do use this lid?

    1. U need to twist it sideway once so that the pump releases from the neck and then use it like any pump dispensing bottle :)

  6. I have not yet used the shampoos and conditioners from Omved, but whatever I have used are just wonderful!
