Alberto Balsam Shampoo and Conditioner review

Hey everyone,

Hope you have heard a good week so far. Today’s post is a product review. I have been shying away from doing these, but here I am. So let’s dive right into the post.

I bought the two products at Nakumatt retailing for 225 kshs which may be just under 3$ for each product. I love the packaging and both products smell really nice. I used the product on my wash day three weeks ago after wearing my hair blown out for three and a half weeks.

I opted for the sun-kissed cherry flavor for the shampoo because it smells also is quite light and flowy. After  my 30mins prepoo with my coconut  oil, I headed to the bathroom to wash my hair which was in four sections. I applied about a handful of shampoo to my scalp and massaged it into my scalp. I then rinsed it out.usually I do one wash, but I opted for two washes for properly clarifying sake. Speaking of clarifying, this product has a sulfate, yes it has. I use sulfates as clarifiers (of course with pre-pooing). Surprisingly my hair was clean without  my hair over-drying at all. WIN!!

For the conditioner my choice was the anti-oxidant blue berry flavor that also smells amazing. After rinsing out the shampoo I applied the conditioner  on to my hair strands and the slip was magical I actually liked it a lot. I let it sit  for five minutes on my hair. My hair was actually soft by the end of wash day which is awesome.

So my final thoughts…


  • The conditioner’s slip is awesome
  • The shampoo doesn’t actually dry out your hair.
  • Its cheap, both products retail for under $5
  • There is a wide variety of flavors…


  • Sulfates… need I say more
  • Also the conditioner has silicone which makes it un-ideal for co-washing

Have you used this product before/ what was your experience?
