Review: Gugo Sulfate-free Shampoo from Beauty Manila

After less than two years, I got my hair colored  so I opted to use organic shampoo again to retain my hair color. After extensive research, I found out that a shampoo that has a sulfate makes the hair color fade easily.

I went to Beauty Manila's shopping site, and checked the Be Organic Gugo Sulfate-free Shampoo. Unfortunately, it was out-of-stock so I continue using the commercial shampoo. Until one day, I saw in Facebook that they had a promo that ran until April 2 a P1 shipping without minimum purchase required. I checked what I've been eyeing on the site and it's available!Without hesitation, I bought it and waited for 3 days to be shipped at home.

The packaging of Beauty Manila is classy. Just look at it!

I saw from the reviews that this shampoo can be a shampoo-and-conditioner-in-1 so this post will be a solo review for the shampoo.

It is infused with gugo to protect your hair from damage. Gugo is rich in saponin that promotes hair growth, strengthen hair and prevent thinning hair. Prolonged use will resultin thicker, fuller, and shinier hair. 


  • boosts hair growth
  • strengthens hair against breakage
  • increases hair volume
  • prevents hair thinning
  • prevents dandruff
  • reduces hair loss
  • adds shine

Upon opening the parcel, Be Organic Gugo Sulfate-free Shampoo comes in a sturdy white bottle sealed with a tape. As I checked the liquid, it was a surprise that the shampoo is very crystal clear and the formula is runny. It is also indicated the expiration date on the bottle.

At first, I was hesitating if the shampoo would do its job to clean my hair. As I applied the liquid, it's dumbfounding to find out that it's bubbly - a thing I didn't expect for an organic shampoo. While I was lathering it on my hair, I got the feeling that my hair is tangling. The feeling remained till I dried my hair with my towel then I combed it.

When my hair got dry, it's a surprise that it is soft even if I did not use a conditioner. However, my hair is still frizzy because I have a porous hair, so it is still advisable that I use conditioner.

I like that the scent of this shampoo is not too strong but it lasts for a day so I still feel fresh and also, I don't get dandruff by using Gugo Sulfate-free Shampoo compared to the other organic shampoos I tried. Lastly, my hair fall is lessen.

Would I recommend it? Yes, aside that it's all-natural and made from the Philippines, the price is cheap. For only P170, you could have an organic hair product. I would advise though that using a conditioner is still a must. I heard that Virgin Coconut Oil conditioner is a good combination for this one.
