Remember the 10 days break i taken?In between that somewhere i read,Sunsilk launched it's first ever advanced premium hair care range, Keratinology range in India in presence of lot of celebrities including Malaika Arora Khan. I couldn't help but posting her pic from the event. She looked absolutely gorgeous.
Under Keratinology there are 2 ranges - Advanced Reconstruction Program and Sun Kissed Colour Therapy
Advanced Reconstrucction Program claims to to recover up to one year of accumulated hair damage in just 5 days and Sun kissed Colour Therapy claims it protects colored hair and luminous coolred hair is retained longer.
Anyways next day in super market these pretty sleek bottles caught my attention. Despite the SA's words showing some annonymous brand bottle" Madaam,take this. This is very good,Why you use chemicals only ?You won't use herbal?"" i succeeded in getting Shampoo,Conditioner and heat protector spray from Advanced reconstruction Program.
Advanced Reconstruction Program Range :
Advanced Reconstruction program consists of 5 products :
a) Detoxifying Shampoo : Gently removes residues and impurities from hair, ensuring complete cleansing, while preparing hair for full reconstruction.
b)Express Teatment Conditioner :Penetrates the hair, gently repairing the damage; the deep softening action leaves hair healthy and smooth.
c)Hair spa Mask :Penetrates through three layers of hair, for deep intensive action; reconstructs and seals cuticles leaving hair healthy and beautiful.
d)Over night Treatment : Recovers up to a month of protein loss in one night.It fills in cracks from damage for salon-like repair
e)Heat protector Spray :Protects every millimeter of hair during styling, for truly professional salon beauty for longer.
As i told before i bought Detoxifying Shampoo,Express Treatment Conditioner and Heat Protector Spray.
Detoxifying shampoo - 200 INR for 200 ml
Express Treatment Conditioner : 200 INR for 200 ml
Heat protector Spray :400 INR for 180 ml.
What Sunsilk telling about Keratinology?
The shampoo has been formulated with Keratin Micro Technology™ to prolong the look and feel of salon-like hair and to address the damage caused by bleaching, colouring, and heat styling. The shampoo penetrates the hair fibre to help restore and retain moisture loss, while conditioning ingredients help to repair surface damage by sealing cuticles and locking in your colour for longer.

I have very dry fine hair and most of the shampoos cause lot of shedding of hair.Till now Only shampoos who won the race are Fabindia Aloevera Shampoo,Matrix Biolage shampoo,Patanjali Keshkanti Shampoo ,Sunsilk yellow and black variant shampoos.
Now coming to this particular range,loved the sleek packaging and classy look those bottles have.
Detoxifying Shampoo :
Comes with a push-in lid to open which i liked
Texture, Color and smell:
Runny creamy texture.Cream color.Smell is similar to other Sunsilk shampoos,which according to me is a nice nostalgic smell :p

(Sigh!! i got tired writing down ingredient list.)
It cleanses well,i can see even henna color traces accumulated over hair fading with 2-3 washes itself. It imparts shine to hair and made my hair soft.But the problem is while removing all impurities,toxins whatever from my hair it removed my hair also. Yes..it caused lot of shedding.I wanted to love this shampoo so i given more chances,but every time it caused lot of shedding of hair.
a) Attractive packaging
b) Reasonable price
c) Cleanses thoroughly
d) Imparts shine
e) Makes hair smooth
f) Nostalgic nice Sunsilk smell.
a) While washing half the hair was lost
Verdict: This is not the shampoo for me.Might be for someone with healthy hair. So i will limit using this once in a month, as clarifying shampoo.
Express Treatment Conditioner :
I loved the bottle with push-in lid,but both shampoo and conditioner bottles look same except shampoo bottle have flat surface at bottom and conditioner flat surface at top. If you are like me, there is a chance you will be confused while bath and end up using shampoo again instead of conditioner ;). Also as usual you'll place conditioner bottle with bottom down and being slanted edge it'll fall down. ( If you are careful person even in bath forget above said things. It is not applicable to you :D)

Color,Texture and Smell:
As you can see it is very thick and creamy.Same cream color as shampoo. Same nice pleasant smell of Sunsilk.
This conditioner hydrates hair well and makes it soft and tangle free. And the nice smell lingers in hair throughout the day.But while applying conditioner also shedding of hair followed.
Pros of Express Conditioner:
a) Hydrates hair well.
b) Leaves hair soft and tangle free.
c) Nice smell lingers in hair through out the day.
d) Decently priced.
Cons of Express Conditioner:
a) Leads to heavy hairfall.
So if you are already having heavy hairfall,i won't recommend this shampoo and conditioner to you.Otherwise this is a very good buy and shampoo is good as a clarifying shampoo.
Review of Heat protector Spray i'll put as a separate review coz now itself this post became bit long.
