Majestic Pure Shampoo: Does It Really Work? – 2018 Review

Majestic Pure Shampoo is a natural hair loss prevention product containing 14 different DHT blockers and high quality essential oils.

The company is also heavily involved in making essential oils, and is based in the US. It comes in at under $20 for a 16 oz bottle, which, as you know, is a bargain in the land of hair loss products.

The shampoo is marketed to both men and women, and they claim it’s safe for color-treated hair as well as natural hair.

What’s in it?

Let’s look at the ingredients list:

Deionized Purified Water, Decyl Glucoside, Cocamidopropyl Hydroxysultaine , Sodium C14-16 Olefin Sufonate, Cocamidopropyl Betaine, Polyquaternium 71, Cocamide MIPA,Disodium Laureth Sulfosuccinate, Polyquaternium 80, Disodium Lauryl Sulfosuccinate, Melaleuca Alternifolia, Argania Spinosa kernel Argan oil, Biotin (Vitamin H), Nigella Sativa Oil, Phyllanthus emblica, Urtica dioica extract, Serenoa Serrulata extract, Cedrus atlantica oil, Rosmarinus officinalis, Salvia Sclarea oil, Polygonum Multiflorum Root, Citrus Medica Limonum oil, Hibiscus Rosa-sinensis Extract, Nicotinic acid Niacin, Zinc Pyrithione, Tocopherol Vitamin E, Soy Isoflavone, Beta Sitosterol, Camellia sinensis, Sorbitan Oleate Decyglucoside Crosspolymer, Phenoxyethanol, Caprylyl, Ethylhexyl Glycerin, Hexylene Glycol and Citric Acid, Panax ginseng root extract, Curcuma Longa (Turmeric) Root Extract

So…. most of these are latin names for plants, but I can pick out many of the ones relevant to hair loss.

  • First, Melaleuca Alternifolia – Tea tree oil, known for its hair loss and skin soothing qualities.
  • Second, Argania Spinosa – commonly known as Argan oil, also beneficial for hair and scalp.
  • Third, Biotin – a crucial ingredient for hair loss prevention. So crucial, in fact, that we recommend separate supplementation
  • Fourth, Nigella Sativa Oil, otherwise known as Black Cumin oil. This is a first for our research, and there are no obvious immediate hair loss benefits to black cumin, although taken internally, it does seem to be an anti-inflammatory. Perhaps it acts as a booster for some of the other ingredients.
  • Fifth, Phyllanthus emblica, or Indian Gooseberry, a crucial ingredient in Aruvedic medicine and most commonly seen in the west as part of the Triphala supplement. Again, I haven’t heard of this as a hair loss remedy, but it is a powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory.
  • Sixth, Polygonum Multiflorum Root, otherwise known as Fo-Ti, the Chinese herb used for thousands of years to treat weight loss and even greying hair.
  • Seventh, Citrus Medica Limonum oil, or lemon peel oil, known to provide balance to the scalp and skin.
  • Eighth, Hibiscus Rosa-sinensis Extract, with a self-explanatory name. Hibiscus is a scientifically proven hair growth agent.
  • Ninth, Panax ginseng root extract, or Korean Red Ginseng, which has a tremendous amount of health properties and has been used in Korea for thousands of years to help with hair loss.
  • Tenth, Tumeric extract, which is a known powerful antioxidant.
  • Eleventh, lots of the usual suspects: Niacin, Zinc, Vitamin E – all known vitamins and minerals that provide aid to unhealthy scalps and skin and prevent shedding hair.

Whew, that was a lot! Noteworthy: Majestic Pure Shampoo does not contain caffeine.

Overall, this shampoo seems to be taking a comprehensive, natural-products approach to re-balancing the scalp and encouraging our heads to regrow hair and hold onto the hair we already have.

I think it’s really interesting to see so many different ingredients from around the globe and different medical traditions in one shampoo. I have to assume that Majestic Pure consulted with their master aromatherapists to come up with this specific blend.

What do people think?

At the time of this review, Majestic Pure Hair Loss Shampoo has an average 4.5/5 star rating from nearly 600 reviews on Amazon.com.  For this many reviews on an unbiased site, a 4.5 average is quite an accomplishment.

People who love it say that it’s cheaper than the competition (mainly Pura d’Or), and that the smell is gender neutral and pleasant. They report less hair loss and breakage over weeks of use, and leaves their hair soft and shiny.

Most say you have to stick with it to see a difference, but luckily it comes in a price point where several weeks or months of usage is doable for most of us.

Because Majestic Pure doesn’t contain sulfates, which are lathering agents, the shampoo doesn’t lather well, but this should be a familiar feature for most of us who’ve tried various hair loss shampoos. The sulfates do more harm than good, and it’s terrific that more and more shampoos are leaving them out.

How to Use Majestic Pure Shampoo:

Like most shampoos, this one is pretty darn straightforward. Put it on wet hair, lather, wait two minutes for the shampoo to penetrate your scalp, and then rinse fully.

This shampoo is appropriate to use daily, and recommended to be used a minimum of 4-5 times a week.

Pros:

  • No animal testing
  • Made in USA, San Diego California in fact
  • Sulfate free
  • Contains many medicinal essential oils not found in most other hair loss shampoos

Cons:

  • Contains Sodium C14-16 Olefin Sulfonate, which can be harsh on colored or dyed hair
  • Does not lather well due to lack of sulfates
  • Due to wide variety of essential oils, may provoke allergic reactions from some
  • Does not contain caffeine

Overall: Yes.

Majestic Pure Shampoo is an affordable DHT blocking shampoo, clocking in at the time of this review at under $20.

For those of us who have spent a pretty penny on hair loss products, any hair loss shampoo under the $20 mark is worth investigating.

For those who’d rather try a caffeine shampoo, and can afford to spend a little more to see how well it works, check out my review of the leading one, Ultrax Hair Surge.

Majestic Pure contains a fascinating array of natural essential oils known for their medicinal properties, in Ayurvedic medicine, Traditional Chinese medicine, and Korean medicine. I like that this shampoo is globe-spanning in its scope and I would recommend giving it a shot, particularly if you’re on a budget or have no known allergies to herbs and plants.

  1. Very interesting review on Majestic Pure. The only hair loss product I’ve seen is Rogaine (sp?) which I believe now is also formulated for women. I really like the ingredients in Majestic Pure like argon oil, biotin and vitamin E. I did not know the hair health benefits of hibiscus which is very interesting to me.
    While I do know turmeric is probably the most important spice for us to add in our diet, I did not know how it related to my hair.
    A few questions I would love answered are 1) what purpose does caffeine have in a shampoo? and 2) the company claims it’s safe for color treated hair yet you say it’s harsh on color treated hair. Which is it?

    • The shampoo does contain an ingredient which can be known to strip color. The others may have no effect, and it’s hard to know what net effect that amount has, or in combination with the other ingredients.

      Caffeine helps hair follicles hold onto existing hair and strengthens them. Caffeine-containing shampoos are the latest rage and quite effective.

  2. Hello
    What does DHT stand for? I love Argan oil for my hair and I’ve read about Biotin and you’re right. I didn’t know that if you take Black Cumin Oil internally that it was an anti-inflammatory, I’ll remember that. There’s a lot of good ingredients in this product. I think any product you have to use for weeks not just this one. It takes time for anything to work. Why is not having caffeine in it a con? It does sound like a pretty good product, You have to shampoo your hair a lot in a week though.
    Thanks for sharing.

    • Hi Angie, thanks so much for the good question. DHT stands for dihydrotestosterone, which is a byproduct of testosterone that can cause hair loss. And, for your question about caffeine, amazingly, caffeine containing hair products are proven to support hair growth. It strengthens the follicles and helps them hold onto existing hair.

  3. Let me say that when I was reading the ingredients it was quite overwhelming. Luckily you give some explanation right after of the most relevant ones related to hair loss. I appreciated that, most of the times only reading the names doesn’t help if you don’t know what they are. I have never heard of Majestic Pure Shampoo but it seems to be a very solid product. I’ve had some problems with shampoos being to strong for my hair which later cause breakage. I know you mentioned its safe for color-treated hair as well as natural hair but there are different kinds of natural hair. Do you know if this shampoo can be used on all kinds of hair (like straight hair)?

    • That’s a really great question. I don’t see any information about Majestic Pure for curly hair or straight hair, so I’m gonna assume it’s ok on both. If you have found that your hair is highly sensitive to shampoos, it might be worth purchasing ones that contain all natural ingredients and are marketed for straight hair only, like this one. Thanks for the feedback, glad you enjoyed the review!

  4. Thank you for this detailed review. I just found the perfect gift!! It’s funny how sometimes you’re looking for a certain product and the internet ocean takes you to a better product you didn’t know exists.

    Thanks again for sharing! Great reading

  5. Wow, I like some essential oils in the ingredients. Cumin, citrus sound very interesting in a hair product. I surprised that caffeine in a hair product support hair growth. I saved this website link for further guide. Thank you.

    • Thanks for the feedback! I do love the essential oils in this product and caffeine is an extra bonus – and I agree, totally surprising!

  6. Hi Penelope,
    very informative review. The shampoo seams to be at a very competitive price and the thing that stands out the most for me is ‘no animal testing’.
    I also love the fact that the essential oils are from herbs and plants – I do a plant based diet and really do believe that we can do all our Nutrition and Healing from plants and not man made products.
    Well done on a great review.

    • thanks so much for the kind comments! I agree with you that this shampoo seems to be bringing a lot of value to the table for such a competitive price. hopefully more and more of them will get away from animal testing and toward a plant based medicine that works!

  7. Thanks so much for all this information about hair loss. I resemble that remark, I have lost hair since I was in my early twenties, that was 30 years ago.
    You have so many ingredients in this item, I was completely lost but you did a great job explaining it all to me in a way I could understand.
    Will this product stimulate hair growth on a person that has not had hair in several years? I have lost all the hair on top of my head, leaving me bald on top with hair on the sides and back. Do you think there could be hope for someone like me?
    Great information. Thanks

    • Hi Bob! I’m not the final authority on this issue by any means, but from what I understand, once a root shaft is totally destroyed, it’s pretty tough to get it to grow back. Many of the products available are designed more for preserving existing hair or stimulating regrowth of not-quite-dead root shafts rather than bringing a whole head back from beyond. That said, it’s worth trying at least Rogaine, which is FDA approved and has resulted in some pretty great regrowth for people.

  8. Hi there,

    Very informative review. I should be sharing this with a couple of my friends and family who are experiencing hair loss. I am sure they would like to give it a try. Very awesome review. Thanks

  9. My wife has a little thinning on top and she uses rogaine. this shampoo looks like something she would be interested in. i will show her the site. Thanks.

  10. I am a big fan of natural products specially herbal shampoos. I agree that shampoos for hair lather very little and that’s why they are good for us plus we can be sure there is not much chemical in them. Majestic pure certainly sounds like a good shampoo worth a try, that many reviews can’t be wrong. Thank you for sharing.

    Cheers
    Raman

    • Thank you for the comment, Raman! I’m glad you’re on the right side of the lather/no lather debate. The lather may feel “normal” to a lot of us, but it comes at a huge cost (ie, all our natural oils).

  11. Hi Penelope! Thanks for a very useful and helpful review.

    I am a man in my 50s, and my hair is thinning. So I am on the hunt for a reputable and reliable hair loss product. This is definitely on my list for consideration because of essential oils. I love essential oils.

    Does this product help with hair regrowth too? If not, do you have a product that does?

    Thanks so much!

    • Thanks for your comment, Timotheus! The essential oils can help with hair regrowth, but the most science-supported products for hair regrowth, vs. hair protection, are Rogaine and also the laser hair helmets like iRestore.

  12. Are any of the ingredients in this shampoo known for causing an allergic reaction? I used the shampoo for three days and broke out in hives. I’ve never had a reaction like that to any other personal care products.

    • Hi Tricia, thanks for your question. Because this shampoo has a pretty hefty grab bag of different plant based ingredients, the trigger really could be ANY one of them. I would recommend that you reach out to Majestic Pure for their input and then pursue a refund due to your reaction. Sometimes these treatments are trial by fire, hate to say it!

  13. Until I found your site I must admit I had never heard of hair loss products for women! I suppose there is a market there as I have watched my mum’s hair thinning over the years. I suppose we just automatically assume hair loss is a male thing. I must admit, though, I would be a bit hesitant to use a product that contains so many ingredients and many I’ve never heard of before. Do you think that it is safe for a product to contain this many ingredients?

    • I think it’s a bit risky for them to include such a blend, because the likelihood that anyone is allergic to any one of these goes up a whole lot. That said, for those of us who are not, the power is in the numbers and hopefully also the synergistic relationship between them all. Thanks for the comment!

  14. I love the fact that this shampoo contains essential oils as they provide so many benefits. I can imagine how good it makes your hair smell. Do you think it is okay to use this even if you don’t have hair loss as a prevention?

    • Yes, you can definitely use hair loss targeted products simply to PROTECT the hair you have. In fact, a big part of makes hair loss products effective is the effect they have on keeping you from losing more of your existing hair. Give it a shot and let us know what you notice!

  15. Wow, this shampoo look like a great product and I personally like the fact and ingredients present in this shampoo, I am dam sure it is a great product. Keep up the good work and keep providing us with useful Hair loss information.
