Sunsilk Moisture Therapy Shampoo and Conditioner

Today I’m going to talk about one of the best cheap finds I discovered, and how it turned out to be my holy grail of shampoo and conditioner. This is an example of why expensive does not always mean the best.

I have really dry and coarse hair. It became a lot worse when I tortured it with hair dye, extreme heat from hair straighteners, hair curlers and back to hair straighteners. And because of that, I tend to spend a lot of money on going for hair treatments at the hair salon.

When I moved to Melbourne, those priviledges dropped to the barest minimum as these services were very expensive. In order to maintain order on my hair, I hunted and tested many brands of shampoos and conditioners. I’ve tried Pantene (too drying for my hair), Tresemme (ditto), Charles Worthington (not moisturising enough), Clairol Herbal Essences (lovely smell, but left my hair feeling tacky the next day), etc.

In the end, the best shampoo and conditioner turned out to be one of the cheapest around – Sunsilk Moisture Therapy.

Sunsilk Moisture Therapy Shampoo and Conditioner


Sunsilk Moisture Therapy shampoo and conditioner are designed for dry or damaged hair, to add extra protection to the most damaged areas.
Formulated with Vitamin E, Keratin and Panthenol, this range helps leaves hair healthy, shiny and perfectly moisturised. 

I use Sunsilk back in Malaysia, and I loved it. The reason it wasn’t my first choice of hair products when I first got here was that there were just so many different brands which I’ve never even seen before, and I was simply overwhelmed. The excitement of finally being able to try out new products got the better of me.

Oh Sunsilk, forgive me for being so fickle.

The Moisture Therapy was great for my hair. The shampoo cleaned my hair well, without that squeaky-clean feeling. I used to think that the squeaky-clean feeling was good, and that it meant that my hair was properly cleaned. It was only later that I found out that shampoos which do that simply means they’re too drying, and that they’re over-cleaning and stripping the natural oils from the hair.

The conditioner left my hair very soft, tangle-free, and manageable to the next day. Whatmore, it does not make my hair feel heavy the next day, which a lot of conditioners tend to do. 

Both smell great, and my husband really liked it too. On my hair, that is, not his 😉 

I’ve also tried the Super Shine range, and it’s fantastic too. I just couldn’t go wrong with Sunsilk, and there is finally no reason for me to move to another brand. Not when this one works wonders on my hair, and is so cheap too.

If you’ve never tried any products by Sunsilk, don’t knock it ‘cos it’s cheap until you try it. I did at first, and now I knock myself on the head for not trying it out much sooner. It could have saved me a lot of money.

Sunsilk shampoos and conditioners are available at most supermarkets and drugstores, and cost less than AUD5. The Malaysian ones are pretty cheap too. 

What I like about it: Great smell, soft and manageable hair. Oh, and did I mention how cheap it was? 😛

What I do not like about it: Nothing

    I have the dark brown version, lucky you and my mom-in-law and sis-in-law, the Sunsilk range works for them but not for me!

    I love how soft the Sunsilk shampoo made my hair (especially the one for straight hair and the one for growing your hair long), but they gave me dandruff!! >.< The only brands i can use are Loreal Elseve and Shurei. Thankfully they’re cheap! 😀

    I’ve always been a big fan of sunsilk. You’re right, cheap can be good too! but i’ve switched to Schwarscoff (oh crap, can’t spell it but you know which one i am sure). am tempted to go back to sunsilk after you’re review.

    Lucky for you! I wished Sunsilk worked for me too, but perhaps they might have changed their formulation since the last time I tried it. Hmm…I’ll give it another shot since you’ve raved so much about it. Only shampoo and conditioner that works amazing on me at the moment are ones by Joico and Redken, which are cutting a deep, deep hole into my pocket!!! So if Sunsilk works, that’d be fantastic news!!!

    Thanks for this review! Sunsilk is a relatively new brand out there in the market. I haven’t tried it out yet. Might be worth a shot!

    nice review, it seems the reason why it appears better is because it doesn’t have sodium laureth/lauryl sulfate inside, which is very drying to hair. some ppl now don’t even use shampoo anymore, some are just to harsh. Its a very strong detergent.

    the stuff is good even on my black/ethnic hair. I like the one in the pink bottle and I hope you guys didnt get rid of it cause I havent seen it lately. Whats up with that????? If something is not broken do try to fix it. Gimmi back the pink sunsilk.

    donde ´puedo encontrar el shampoo sunsilk que no lo he vuelto a ver en los supermercados, ni en ningun sitio

    It is not yet available here on our country unlike some areas in the world who already have this moisturizer. As for now we use sunsilk treatment shampoo who also gives moisture to our hair and protect it against the harmful rays of the sun. Hair takes a almost half of our confidence this is why we need to take good care of our hair.
