My Experience with WishCare Fermented Rice Water Haircare Range
The haircare range contains shampoo, conditioner and hair oil enriched with fermented rice water and comes in an amber plastic bottle with a pump packaging, making it convenient to use. The oil comes with a comb applicator, which makes oiling hair a breeze.
WishCare Fermented Rice Water haircare range is free from sulfates, parabens, silicones, artificial colors, and animal testing.
WishCare Fermented Rice Water Shampoo
Price: ₹599 for 300 ml
How do I use it? After dampening my hair, I take a dollop of the shampoo and distribute it evenly, starting my scalp to hair ends. Then I gently massage it, so the shampoo cleanses every strand of my hair.
The shampoo is neither runny nor thick, which makes it easy to spread on hair. It has a faint rice fragrance that isn’t overpowering. The shampoo doesn’t lather too much due to the absence of sulfates but enough to give my hair a deep cleanse. My hair feels refreshed and bouncy after using it.
WishCare Fermented Rice Water Conditioner
Price: ₹599 for 300 ml
How do I use it? After shampooing my hair, I take two pumps of the conditioner and start applying from the middle of my hair to the hair ends. I avoid massaging it and slide my fingers across hair, focusing on the parts where it gets frizzy. After leaving it on for 5 minutes, I wash it off gently without rubbing the hair.
I like that this conditioner isn’t too thick, unlike the ones I’ve previously used. It smells floral, similar to the shampoo. It sticks well with hair when applied and absorbs. After rinsing my hair with cold water, it appears sleek and fresh. My hair gets frizzy even though I have straight hair, but this conditioner manages to control it. The scent it leaves behind is refreshing!
WishCare Fermented Rice Hair Oil
How do I use it? I remove the screw cap of the bottle and put on the comb applicator. I press the bottle a bit to dispense the oil directly to my scalp. After applying, I leave it for 5 minutes and then massage the oil to make it absorb. As per the instructions, I don’t comb my hair right away after applying the oil as it can lead to hair breakage.
The hair oil contains the goodness of olive oil, rosemary oil, sesame oil, and the famous rice oil. It has a herbal fragrance of rosemary, which I like and find it calming. However, the scent is on the stronger side. Hair oils work best when you apply, massage and leave it overnight, following up with a hair wash the next morning. I follow the same process and the results are well-tamed and hydrated hair.
WishCare Fermented Rice Water Haircare Range
All in all, WishCare Fermented Rice Water Haircare range worked great on my oily scalp with dry hair ends. The shampoo doesn’t lather too much but deeply cleanses hair, conditioner controls the frizz and restores shine and silkiness. The products are free from sulfates and paraben, along with being cruelty-free. The price is a bit higher, but looking at the results, I think the range is worth a try.
WishCare, founded in 2016, is a vegan, cruelty-free brand and uses recycled material for packaging, which is great considering the environment. Their philosophy focuses on customers that seek non-toxic and natural-based products. The brand’s tagline ‘you wish, we care’ speaks volumes for itself as they welcome feedback from their customers and, when required, tweak their products until they are suitable and safe to use.
