Rene Furterer Astera Soothing Shampoo Review

Rene Furterer Astera Shampoo
If you read my blog regularly, you may have noticed that I do not do sample reviews unless and until it is really an awesome product and I have loads of sachets or tubes to try it. Recently I came across a brand Rene Furterer that offered me samples of Rene Furterer Astera Shampoo* for review. Though I was not interested in featuring samples here on blog but soothing shampoo, sensitive and irritated scalp instantly made me curious. I got 2 tubes 15ml each and each tube gives 4 washes. It is priced at Rs 1320 for 200ml which is quite expensive.

Rene Furterer Astera Shampoo comes in a mint green squeezable plastic tube with a dark green flip top lid. As I got the sample sizes, it is really easy to carry them in bag while traveling with no fear of leakage or spillage.

The shampoo is clear with a refreshing peppermint and eucalyptus oil scent. The scent is slightly strong but won’t bother sensitive noses. The texture of the shampoo is soft and smooth with gel consistency. It is neither very thick nor very thin. You are greeted with the refreshing peppermint scent as soon as it is dispensed out. I always make sure to dilute my shampoo to reduce the damage the chemicals may cause to the hair. The shampoo is easily applied and gets spread to my medium length hair. It gives a cooling sensation which I totally loved in this hot weather. Whenever I oil my hair, I require more shampoo than required though it happens with all the shampoos in my case. It creates good lather and the scent does not tend to intensify. It is easily rinsed away. After using the shampoo, my hair feels soft, thoroughly cleansed (I apply oil before washing my hair!) and manageable with a healthy shine. I have soft, silky hair with dry and frizzy ends. My ends feel soft and I could not find any or less knots that I used to face when I use harsh shampoos. It controls the frizz but I always make sure to apply a good conditioner to make my hair soft and moisturized. It does not leave greasy residue behind or any build up. It is super hot and humid weather here and sometimes I do get itchy and irritated scalp. This shampoo reduces irritation to a great extent and my scalp does not tend to get oily for 2 days. As I apply oil before washing my hair, I need two washes to get clean and oil free hair. The scent does not linger and fades away as soon as the shampoo is rinsed off. I have not experienced any adverse effects whilst using it. 

The shampoo contains peppermint and eucalyptus oil that provides moisture and shine to hair.

Overall Thoughts:
Rene Furterer Astera Shampoo is a great shampoo for people with dry, itchy and sensitive scalp. It gives a nice cooling sensation and cleanses hair well. It is definitely a soothing shampoo and a lovely way to pamper your hair in this humid summer/rainy season. I would happily recommend it to everyone!

Rating: 4.8/5

My Tips:
•    For deep cleansing, let the shampoo stay in your hair for a minute or two.
•    If you have dry ends, don’t forget to apply a conditioner after shampooing.

Have you tried any soothing shampoo for irritated scalp?

Stay pretty!
