Wow Skin Science Apple Cider Vinegar Shampoo review
Today I’ve come up with the Wow Skin Science Apple Cider Vinegar Shampoo review. It was 2 years back that I had started suffering from severe hair fall and had to consult a dermatologist. After visiting him the main cause that was diagnosed for my hair fall was dandruff. It was then he prescribed me a ketoconazole based shampoo and since then I’ve been using that. But using that shampoo has made my hair very rough and dry and that’s when I started my search for paraben and sulphate free shampoos with DHT blocking agents.
After thorough research work, I came across this brand and contacted them to find the right shampoo for myself. Want to know more how this shampoo fared on me? Then continue reading till the end.

The Wow Skin Science team are very kind and prompt in handling their customer queries. I had a doubt as to which shampoo should I use that would have natural DHT blockers in it. That’s when they recommended me to use their best selling shampoo for people whose scalp is prone to dandruff.
What is DHT?
Let me tell you as to why I wanted a DHT blocking shampoo. DHT also known as dihydrotestosterone is a hormone that is responsible for baldness, hair fall /hair loss and androgenic alopecia. If this hormone can be blocked topically it will help in slowing and reversing hair loss. This shampoo has two natural DHT blockers namely Stinging nettle leaf and saw palmetto which is scientifically proven to block DHT. I usually dilute this shampoo and then apply it on my scalp as I find it much convenient.
Also, I wash my hair every alternate day so it’s better to dilute it so as to avoid my hair from becoming dry. I find the sweet fragrance of this shampoo very pleasing. It does not lather much like regular shampoos because of the fact that it’s free of Sulphates. It washes off easily and during that time my hair feels very smooth. Post washing my hair appears much shinier and less tangled which makes my hair less prone to breakage. It helps in effectively getting rid of dirt and oil buildup and gives a smooth feel to my hair. It even reduces hair fall up to a certain extent. This shampoo helps to maintain scalps natural oil balance. It claims that it is made with 100% natural and raw apple cider vinegar that is combined with the benefits of argan oil and almond oil.
Now lets come to the downside of this shampoo. We all know that apple cider vinegar is known to treat and reduce dandruff. But after using this shampoo I didn’t feel any reduction in my dandruff. In fact, this shampoo has again increased my dandruff so I don’t think I can continue with this as the main cause of my severe hair fall was dandruff.
Free of Parabens, Sulphates and silicones
Has natural DHT blockers
Helps in slightly reducing hair fall
Hair feels soft and tangle free
Effectively removes dirt and oil buildup.
Does not reduce but infact it increased dandruff.
I would not purchase this shampoo again because I could notice that my dandruff had increased. If you are someone who has minor dandruff then you can give this a try.
