Watercress Hair Cleanser and Watercress Hair Conditioner from this brand are priced much higher than the normal drugstore brands available in India. In this article we will dissect these two hair care products to find out if they are really worth the price or you should spend the money on your favorite TBS hair care products?
Let us start with a short introduction about the brand. So that you can get a clear idea about what the company is up to.
The Nature’s Co. started its journey in 2003, with the motto to bring products made from the best natural ingredients. The brand is known for using 100% natural extracts, essential oils and other nature derived components in order to come up with products that are safe, gentle and yet effective.

Nature’s Co. Watercress Hair Cleanser
The Watercress Hair Cleanser is one of the top selling products from the Aquaspark range of the brand. The product has a deep green color and a gel like consistency. It has a natural fragrance that does not linger for long after washing your hairs.
The brand has recently changed its packaging. It used to come in a completely transparent square shaped plastic bottle with the details etched on the surface. The green color of the hair cleanser itself used to add color to the transparent bottle packaging. However, currently it comes with a paper printed tag added on the transparent plastic bottle. The flip-open cap is easy to handle.
What it claims?
The Nature’s Co. Watercress Hair Cleanser claims that it cannot only retard the loss of hairs but can also boost fresh hair growth due to its unique constituents that nourishes the scalp as well as the hair shafts. The formula claims to clean your scalp and hairs without reaping off the needed moisture and will leave your hairs healthy and shiny.
What’s in it?
So, now as we are clear about the claims, let us take a quick look at the key ingredients of the product so that we can get a clear idea about how far the claims can be true.
Watercress Extract: Watercress is known as one of the best natural hair tonics that can prevent hair fall and boost hair growth. So, the primary claim of this hair cleanser about boosting hair growth comes from the abilities of this key ingredient.
Vegetable Glycerin: Vegetable glycerin is a commonly used ingredient in high quality hair cleansers to ensure proper hydration and water retention in the hairs.

Apple Cider Vinegar: ACV is a well know remedy for a number of scalp conditions including dandruff and scalp itching. It is also known as an effective and all natural hair conditioner.
Aloe Vera Extract: Aloe Vera extract has the ability to nourish the hairs as well as the hair roots. It helps in hair regeneration and also saves hairs from dryness.

To use this hair cleanser, wet your hairs completely and then take a minimum amount of the product on your palms. Massage the product lightly onto your scalp and hairs. It will lather but you will not surely see as much lather as you get with an SLS/SLEs filled shampoo.
After you have messaged the cleanser into your scalp and hairs, leave on for 1-2 minutes and then wash off with water. Repeat if needed but do not use a lot of the product at one go. You can also use warm water for washing off the cleanser, if required.
