Shampoo and leave in hair for 2 minutes before rinsing.
Colour: Lightly tinted clear
Consistency: Light and runny
Scent: Light and fresh
Usage: I did my usual double shampoo, once to remove dirt & grime which I rinsed off immediately followed by a second shampoo which I left on for 2 minutes. The shampoo has light, airy foam (quite different from regular shampoos) and feels really soft. At first, I did not expect it to clean my hair well as it felt "diluted" due to the light consistency, but it does and it leaves my hair feeling soft and fresh as well as volumised. It does not volumise my hair as much as my regular shampoo but it does a pretty good job. I like the airy feel of my hair after it dries.
I tested it for more than a week as I only shampoo on alternate days. I used it 4 times on its own but after the first wash, I already noticed reduced hair loss during shampooing and combing. My mum uses this shampoo and she is loves it and claims minimal hair loss after using over a month. She swears by it. She has short hair and does not use the condtioner.
I was worried that it would leave my hair tangled after use as it claims to only have a little conditioning effect. Although my hair was more tangled than usual without conditioner, it was still manageable. Following this, I managed to test it once with the conditioner which I purchased myself.

Use after Plantur 39 Phyto-Caffeine Shampoo. Rinse thoroughly.
Colour: Off white
Consistency: Lotion like
Scent: Light and fresh
Usage: I only managed to try this once before the review. I like the light texture and fresh scent. It left my hair soft and detangled without affecting the volumising effect of the shampoo. For those with long tresses, I would recommend pairing the shampoo with the conditioner.
I will need to test this more and will update the results accordingly. If it does stop hair loss after prolonged use, I would give it 10/10.
I also plan to test the version for coloured hair as well as the hair tonic at a later stage.
This is my personal experience and does not reflect that it will be the same for everyone.
The shampoo was sent to me for review but that does not affect my views on it.
I purchased the conditioner myself after testing the shampoo.
I already knew about this shampoo as my mum has been trying to get me to use it for months.
And yes...the hair loss is mum's fault.
