I had to do a little research about SERICIN: what it’s all about  and this what I found. SERICIN is refined from the body of silkworms. *Gags*. Sericin contains 18 kinds of amino acids among which serine and aspartate have the highest content. By applying to the hair, it makes it soft and smooth. It doesn’t however adhere to the hair.
Sericin is also an excellent moisturizer. For more information about sericin visit here or here.

VERDICT

It is kinda runny….I mean it is not that thick. I could barely keep it on my hand for a picture: it was just dripping everywhere. I still don’t know what I would associate the smell with… I guess it smells like berries. Don’t ask which one because I don’t know but it is girly. It lathers okay. If you love lathers, this is not the product for you. 

Pros:
– It contains hydrogenated castor oil.
– It is a sulphate-free shampoo.
– It contains HYDROLYSED WHEAT PROTEIN which helps to moisturize the hair.
– It is really smoothening and moisturizing and didn’t leave my hair stripped and my hair was clean.
– My hair didn’t tangle up at all. It gave my hair movement. LOL. I could whip my hair back and forth literally.
