Caprice Mexican Shampoo Review
I realize I keep mentioning this “Mexican shampoo” but never tell you exactly what it is.
Well, here ya go. No more laziness.
It’s Caprice, by Palmolive. The type is Rizos Definidos (Defined Curls).
I discovered it years ago on my first trip to the Dominican Republic and use it on every trip since. I bought this bottle in the picture in May 2009 in Mexico, and it’s a huge bottle that’s lasted me a long while. (granted I also used some vo5 clarifying shampoo throughout the year too)
I actually really like this shampoo. It has slip! I was shocked. I threw away the bottle, but I’m sure it’s filled with horrible sulfates and drying agents, but something in this gives slip and I love it. I’ll check online to see if I can find the ingredients somewhere.
Also, this leaves my hair squeaky clean (sometimes I like that, most times I don’t) and you don’t need much of it to get a thoroughly cleaned scalp. When I first used it, I used the same amount I’d use of other shampoos and it took forever to wash out. So, just a lil dab’ll do ya. (Hence why it lasts forever)
When I go back to Mexico in a few weeks I think I’ll be buying another bottle!
I still use this whenever I travel to a place I can buy it locally and can leave it there for the cleaning staff. I buy it whenever I cruise to Mexico or visit D.R. I also buy the conditioner as well. I have moved more toward “clean” or “green” hair products, but not exclusively.
You don’t have to travel to latin america to find this line though. Here are some from Caprice that I’ve tried over the years, and below are a few other brands I’ve purchased and used from Mexico and Dominican Republic over the years:
