Gotukola Youth Spring Shampoo- Review

Press Sample
Gotukola Youth Spring hair products contain "the Gotu Kola (Centella asiatica) plant extract which has been used for thousands of years in India and China for its medicinal purposes. It has been used to heal wounds, improve mental clarity, and treat skin conditions such as leprosy and psoriasis. It has been called the 'fountain of life' because legend has it that an ancient Chinese herbalist lived for more than 200 years as a result of taking the gotukola herb."

Gotukola posits, "in modern days, it is considered as among those that has the potential to treat hair loss and baldness problems. Gotukola is rich in vitamin B and K along with other nourishing ingredients to soften hair as well as providing a protective layer to seal spit ends. In addition, Gotukola’s active ingredients leave your hair and scalp cleansed as well as returning your hair to its natural PH level which will help prevent color fading. Gotukola also contains vitamin E that has a dual purpose that promotes overall health and UV protection."
It is also believed, according to Gotukola, "to protect the hair follicles from the harmful activity caused by Dihydrotestosterone (DHT). DHT in the hair follicles is considered to be a major cause of male pattern baldness." They developed their unique formula in the Gotukola laboratories with an emphasis on preventative treatments for the premature hair loss due to environmental conditions.
Gotukola’s products restore and revive hair giving it flexibility and softness." Gotukola's patented ingredients "are one of a kind and our guarantee is that Gotukola products will renew and rejuvenate your hair, leaving it looking and feeling great."

Gotukola Youth Spring Shampoo nourishes the hair leaving it silky soft, moisturized, manageable, and with an unbelievable glossy shine. It never leaves the hair weighed down or greasy, but instead leaves the hair very smooth to the touch. The shampoo itself is so moisturizing that it does wonders in detangling my hair even before I use a conditioner. As previously noted, I have tried so many products on my naturally curly hair, and very few ever leave it glossy and shiny, but Gotukola products give me glossy moisturized hair that is sumptuously soft and silky. For those with curly hair, I needn't tell you that our hair tends to be on the dry side. It is therefore incumbent on those with curly hair to use moisture rich haircare products in order to receive adequate moisture- lest you want to have hair that looks and feels like straw. In Gotukola I have found a  soulmate for my hair, and while their products that I have featured are formulated for all hair types- I can say that this line really does address the needs of curly hair with great efficacy! Like their hair mask and hair oil (reviewed here and here), this shampoo has a very pleasant scent that somehow oddly defies description. As I have said before, every single time that I endeavor to describe the scent all I manage to muster is "pleasant" or "comforting." It truly is both of those things!
Overall assessment: Absolutely best in class, and a game changer for my curly hair! I have only used three of their products, but definitely want to try others!

$28.00 for 420 ml. or 14.2 fl. oz. Available from Koji Hair Salon and Naimie's. (Unaffiliated links provided for your convenience). Made in Israel.

  1. Interesting! I wonder if this is also available in other countries like US or in Asia? I would like to recommend this to my friend who's suffering from dry scalp.

    1. It is definitely available in the US, but I don't know whether or not it is sold in Asia. The two links provided above are in the US. :D
