Review: Atomy Herbal Hair Shampoo

♫ 丁当 - 一个人不可能

Are you a fan of herbal products? If you are, you might want to check out this herbal shampoo from Korea!

I was sent a bottle of Atomy (Atom美)Herbal Hair Shampoo to review by Cosmetic Love, a Korea-based online shop that sells a huge variety of Korean skincare, hair care, and cosmetic products. I did not expect it to be such a big bottle of shampoo (500ml), and it even comes with a box! The packaging is simple but convenient; a plastic bottle with a press pump in the shape of a leaf (a nice touch).

Atomy Herbal Hair Shampoo
The Atomy Herbal Hair Shampoo contains Atomy Saengmodan, a specialized prescription for hair care which combines oriental medicinal secrets with 10 complex oriental medicines to cleanse, nourish and care for hair and scalp.

The herbal ingredients of Atomy Saengmodan combine together to provide the hair and scalp with the following benefits:
  • Scalp Cleansing - removes wastes and contaminants with traditional herbal ingredients such as asparagus cochinchinensis, eclipta prostrata, and chrysanthemum.
  • Hair Trouble Treatment - cares for scalp troubles with angelica extract and tricholoro acid contents.
  • Improves Hair Texture - protects damaged hair texture with various effective ingredients such as pleuropterus multiflorus, Dictamnus dasycarpus Turcz. root bark, and Swertia pseudo-chinensis extract.
The full list of ingredients are printed on the side of the box.

True to its name, the Atomy Herbal Hair Shampoo has a very distinct herbal smell, not unlike that of Chinese traditional herbs. Some might enjoy the scent, while others may not like it.

Personally, I am not a fan of the scent, as it reminds me too much of the taste of Chinese herbal medicine. (⌒_⌒;) However, as a shampoo, I find that it works well to clean hair and scalp, plus it has a very refreshing minty (menthol?) feeling when you shampoo your hair. The shampoo doesn't make your hair feel overly dry or have that 'squeaky' feeling after you rinse it off, but as I have coarse and damaged hair, I will still use a conditioner after shampoo.

Ohhh... Good to know this. I've always go for natural/herbal/organic products whenever I can. And shampoo is one that can hardly find in the market cos most of the ingredients are synthetic. Really happy to know about this brand.

Jerine: I never knew you're into these kind of natural/herbal stuff. XD Hmm... I thought Herbal Essences would be pretty good? This shampoo is not bad, but the herbal smell is quite strong; definitely not for those who can't stand the scent.
