(Both products were purchased from TNS Skinlab stores.  All images credited to

Organic Formulations Biologika Coconut Shampoo
Size:  500ml
Price:  MYR43 (purchased for MYR23 after using a MYR20 coupon)
Packaging:  Opaque white press cap bottle
Features:  Contains no synthetic fragrances, parabens, artificial colours, formaldehyde-causing agents or animal-derived ingredients, natural, biodegradable, soap free, sulphate free
Repurchase:  Maybe. 
I bought this shampoo because it was a cheap sulphate-free and paraben-free shampoo.  It smells nice, albeit a little strong for something that contains no synthetic fragrances.  The smell lasts overnight.  The shampoo contains coconut oil and thus, leaves hair soft and gives it body. 

I have to stress that the instructions state that the shampoo should be used with warm water.  At first, I didn’t follow the instructions and found that my hair was sticky and weighed down after using the shampoo.  You absolutely must use warm water to rinse out the shampoo.  Honestly, I find it a bit troublesome in the extremely hot weather we’ve been having lately.  Otherwise, this is a good and affordable shampoo. 

Nature’s Lab Clarifying Shampoo
Size:  500ml
Price:  MYR63 (purchased for MYR41)
Packaging:  Opaque white press cap bottle
Features:  Contains ingredients derived from natural sources, free of sulphates, parabens, silicones, mineral oils, PEGs, and TEA/DEA
Repurchase:  Maybe, depending on the price

This shampoo was manufactured for TNS Skinlab.  So, it’s like an in-house brand e.g.Tesco brand or AEON brand.  I had expected that it would be cheaper since it’s an in-house brand it isn’t.  In fact, it isn’t exactly affordable, even for a sulphate-free and paraben-free shampoo. 

However, I found this shampoo to be quite good.  I had no allergic reactions after using it.  It cleaned well without leaving my hair too dry.  It didn’t have a strong smell.  In short, there is nothing to stop me from repurchasing, except the price.
