My rating: 4 out of 5

The first time I used Giovanni shampoo, I thought that it was great. At that time, I felt that the costs of the products were quite pricey and so I would just get it once in a while. I finally managed to get it on sale a few months back and purchased a specific brand known as smooth as silk. It is their moisturizing range. I felt like my hair was lacking in moisture and it did not feel as soft as I was used to before, therefore the journey to using Giovanni began.

What I like about it

I like Giovanni shampoo smooth as silk because it does not contain any harmful sulfates and parabens. It’s free of any artificial dyes and has natural botanical ingredients. Now it may not be for everyone, however for  me I love it because it actually makes my hair less frizz prone even a few days after washing my hair.

One thing that I noticed that was great about Giovanni, was that when I first started using it, I had quite a bit of breakage, however after several uses now, I am finding that my hair breakage is significantly less. My hair is easily detangled which is amazing, so everytime I use my wide toothed comb to comb it out there are very few tangles.

Actually on Friday when I washed it, I had actually undone my hair which had been in little twists, normally the process of detangling would have taken me ages, but with Giovanni, the detangling process was quick and easy.

For those individuals that want to know if the company is environmentally responsible, well their packaging is recyclable.

My hair certainly is easier to manage, however not sure that it’s smoother per se, however I have texturised hair, therefore for the work it does on it, I am quite impressed.

Additonally, it does not have a strong smell so it’s great when you wash your hair. It has also saved me considerable time and effort as I don’t spend a many hours as I used to on my hair in general.

Giovanni Conditioner is great as well, it’s very think and I normally just use one coin and it is enough to moisturise my hair. I normally keep it in for 5 – 10 minutes without heat, however depending on the time I have, I use a shower cap and put a beanie on top if I want ran other household chores.

What I don’t like

Some of the ingredients seem to settle at the bottom of the shampoo and you have to keep shaking it to make sure that you are getting everything distributed in the shampoo. I am not sure if it’s because of my location that this is happening but it’s something I don’t like.

I find that I tend to use the conditioner more than the shampoo, yet I need it more. I think this is also on my end and has nothing to do with the brand.

As you can see, there’s not much to dislike about Giovanni in general.


Giovanni smooth as silk shampoo and conditioner really work well for me. I think depending on the type of hair you have it can be great and potentially it may also not be suitable for you. If you can get a sample in the shop I would suggest getting that first before you make the purchase.

This product would be ideal for an individual that has dry hair. I will go into my next blog to discuss about identifying how you can revive your hair depending on what you use for it.

If you have used Giovanni shampoo, how did you find them, did they work for you?
