Poker straight hair is the dream of many. Due to the curly-wavy structure of my hair, I would never have that celebrity like silky straight hair without chemical intervention. I already have hair fall problem and I do not want to worsen it by exposing my hair to harmful chemicals and straightening tools. I either enhance my hair’s natural curls or loosen up those curls to make my hair appear straightened than normal. My Sunsilk Perfect Straight Shampoo comes handy when I am opting for the second choice. Sunsilk has been a loyal partner in my hair growth journey for the last 2-3 years. Almost all the variants of hair care items from this brand do well to my hair. Let’s check out the review to find if this Perfect Straight is a hit or a miss!

My Experience with Sunsilk Perfect Straight Shampoo

Packaging- This shampoo comes in a blue-purple matte plastic bottle with the flip-open mechanism. The packaging is very sturdy and travel-friendly. The full ingredient list is given in the backside of the pack. This shampoo is available in 4 sizes; my bottle in the second size. The first three sizes come with a flip-top cap where the biggest size comes with a pump packaging. I have no other option other than giving a high five on such a thoughtful packaging!

Colour & Texture- The shampoo is a medium density liquid with pearly white color. Being a sulfated shampoo, it creates lots of lather. It gets rinsed very easily and does not leave behind an oily residue. It is not a very heavy or creamy cleanser.

Fragrance- It has a very mild floral fragrance. The smell does not feel overwhelming to my senses. It leaves behind a faint whiff which stays for the entire day of my hair wash. Sadly, it vanishes after that.

Sunsilk Perfect Straight Shampoo Review 3

Experience- Let’s begin the discussion with the cleansing property of this shampoo. This one is a very good hair cleanser. It washes off all the accumulated dirt, excess sebum and oily residues from pre-shampoo oiling routine without over drying. My extra dry hair still needs something moisturizing for my hair so I have to continue with my hair conditioner. I have been using the conditioner from the same range and I can tell the effect of the shampoo is enhanced in this way. Conditioners from different brand work but does not perform that well. The shampoo makes the hair soft to touch and loosens up my curls to some extent. The nourishment provided by this shampoo and conditioner combo prevents unruly frizzes. The effect of the shampoo and conditioner lasts 2-3 days depending on the climatic condition.

Overall Performance of Sunsilk Perfect Straight Shampoo


  1. Cleanses hair without drying
  2. Loosens up the curls for wavy-curly hair texture
  3. Does not make hair tangle-prone and unmanageable
  4. Nice floral fragrance
  5. Available in various sizes


  1. Contains sulphites
  2. The shampoo alone would not be sufficient for dry hair; a conditioner is a must
  3. Gives perfect straightened effect to naturally straight hair only

Would I Repurchase or Recommend?

I have already made a few repurchases and will be making more in future because this shampoo cleanses my hair at the same time loosens up my natural curls without frizziness. I will recommend this shampoo to all!

The new packaging of Sunsilk is very bright and attractive 🙂
I don’t think it will straighten wavy hair. But you can expect less tangles and loosened curls
