Fabindia Avocado Shampoo Review by Guest Writer Rubee

This is what Martin Luther said about hair- “The hair is the richest ornament of women.”! I  Can’t disagree, and am always on the lookout for products to pamper my hair. According to Fab India, their Avocado shampoo is enriched with naturally moisturising avocado butter, this shampoo helps retain moisture in hair making dry and damaged hair look healthier. My hair is little dry & frizzy, to tame my hair I was searching for a product that could cleanse my scalp well & at the same time reduce the dryness, I saw people raving about the Fab India Avocado shampoos & conditioners & decided to give it try.

Ingredients:  Purified Water, SLES, Cocoamidopropylbetaine, Ethylene Glycol Disteareate, Glycerine, Polyquaternium 7, Coconut Diethanolamide, Dimethicone, Phenoxy Ethanol, Guar Gum, Avocado Butter, Lanolin, Disodium EDTA, Citric Acid, Polyquaternium 10, Panthenol.

The Fabindia avocado shampoo comes in a white colored plastic bottle with the description printed on a light green colored paper (to go with the concept of avocados I guess). The shampoo is pearl white in color & smells fruity; the texture is thick & lathers well. Every time I shampooed I just needed 2 dime sizes of the product to cleanse my scalp & get rid of the dirt. But to my horror, I saw huge hair fall after I started using this, I mean every time I rinsed my hair, I would see strands of hair getting washed away. However I still wanted it to work, because at times I have seen some products working for me after using them for some time, so I kept using this for a while but couldn’t find any change. I do agree that the shampoo keeps my hair hydrated & tangle free & made my hair soft & manageable but I shed a lot of hair while using it.


  1. Makes the hair look soft & frizz free.
  2. Lathers well & rinses off easily, leaving behind a cleansed scalp & hair.
  3. Just need a small amount to wash hair.


  1. Had a major hair fall after using this.

Overall Verdict :B-

 Price: Rs.250 for 250ml

Recommendation: The Fab India Avocado Shampoo does retain the moisture in the hair & keeps it frizz-free, but I don’t think it’s worth considering the hair fall I have experienced after using it.

Rubee claims to be a  make up novice,  but i dont believe that because her first brush with make up was when she was just 7 and  used her mom’s Lakme lipstick  in a fiery red ! She says there hasnt been any turning back since! (Girl, the first time i put lipstick i was 22 ! So you have way more lipstick experience than i do!)

Hey Pavani, Thankyou! Yeah everytime when mom used to be busy, I would sneak around & apply the lipstick & rub it off as soon I heard her coming :)

I had similar experience with L’Oreal Paris Smooth Intense Smoothing Shampoo. It makes my hair oh so buttery soft and silky and frizz free and retains the moisture, BUT the tragedy is that it causes a gazillion hair to fall ! Sigh.

So I’m just gonna use the conditioner from the same line for now.

Kritika, I definitely agree some products do deliver what we look for but at the same they do make us loose something, I used a facewash that did clear my pimples but was too drying!
