PURA D’OR Anti-Hair Loss Premium Organic Argan Oil Shampoo Review

Overview: Pura d’Or hair loss prevention premium organic shampoo

PURA D’OR Argan Oil Shampoo is a very popular product for hair loss, coming in at 4.1 overall rating out of nearly 9,000 user reviews (at the time of this post) on Amazon.

This shampoo markets itself as “The Gold Standard in Hair Loss Due to Breakage“…which is a pretty dramatic claim. Let’s find out if it’s true.

What’s in it?

PURA D’OR ingredients include 17 natural, all-organic compounds known to help with hair loss.

The shampoo base contains no industrial chemicals known to cause allergic reactions.

Notably, Pura d’Or contains no sulfates and no parabens (the two big bad wolves of beauty products). This catches my attention and makes me want to learn more.

As you can see above,  this shampoo includes some of the natural ingredients we’ve previously identified as helpful for hair loss prevention.

Two of these, Saw Palmetto and Nettle Root Extract, are very well established DHT inhibitors. DHT is a derivative of the hormone testosterone, which is thought to shrink hair follicles in both men and women.

Any shampoo that includes DHT blockers is well on its way to being effective against hair loss.

Does it work? – My experience using this shampoo


Thousands of happy online reviewers on Amazon and elsewhere seem to think so.

I used this shampoo exclusively for two months.

I didn’t expect significant regrowth, since the intention of this shampoo is to prevent loss from breakage. However, I did feel that my hair was stronger, but that could also have been attributed to my other treatments, including biotin supplementation.

Also, my usage period didn’t quite meet the minimum recommended period of time to see the full effects.

My main complaint about this shampoo is that it has a thick and slightly oily consistency, and my hair always got greasy in just one day (vs. the normal 2-3). This lead to more shampoo cycles than I wanted. However, my experience is inconsistent with what most happy reviewers reported, which is a lack of greasy residue from PURA D’OR

What I like the most from my experience using Pura D’Or was the absence of any harmful chemical ingredients like sulfites and parabens. These ingredients can damage our scalp and block our efforts to regrow hair.

I also liked the pump bottle design quite a bit, and personally think all shampoo should be delivered this way. I also liked the smell, which is a big plus – it was herbal and complex and a bit citrusy, too. Anything citrusy is good in my book!

Economy: in spite of my frequent shampoos (and my hair is long, well past my shoulders) the bottle lasted for over two months. Depending on your normal price point for shampoo, this could be somewhat more expensive than your usual.

However, most women dealing with hair loss would probably agree that protecting the hair that we have left is priceless, which is to say, we’re willing to spend a lot on something that works.

Pura Premium Organic Hair Loss Prevention Shampoo – Worth a try


You may be one of the thousands who love this shampoo and have a strongly positive response to it. It may help your hair become full, lucious, and beautiful again.

Because this is such a popular product, and because it contains so many of the natural compounds that help with hair loss protection, I recommend it.

  1. Thanks for bringing another anti hair loss product. I have not heard of pure d’or oil shampoo but I have tried a lot of products of this kind. My main question is does it have a good or any positive effect on heavily bald men? Do you know of such cases of people that have tried it and have a “wow” effect after that? Thank you.

    • Thanks for the feedback! There are several verified reviews on Amazon from men, and most of them are quite positive. DHT, the byproduct of testosterone (which is more predominant in men than women) plays a role in hair loss, and the DHT blocking compounds in this solution are thought to play a role in specifically helping men. Unfortunately I think we’re all still looking for the magic bullet for regrowing hair that is heavily or mostly balded, my dad included! He lost his hair at age 16.

  2. ARGAN OIL, I can tell you now that I have started using this argan oil shampoo for 6 months now and have noticed my hair health increase.
    Awesome seeing a product that is more natural and not much money compared to hair loss programs.
    That for sharing this with me.

  3. Hi there, thank you for this review,
    Argan Oil without a doubt has gaining substantial amount of popularity over the past few years.

    May I know though, do they have international delivery to Malaysia, I know it may sound silly to buy a shampoo from abroad, but if the price is right, why not?

    Thanks

    • You can get international shipping on just about any product on the planet these days, so it’s worth checking out!

  4. This will be very helpful for my mum, its her birthday soon, and due to her disabilities, she has to deal with hair loss a lot in recent years, so anything i can direct her to try is always good, so im liking the sound of this Pura Dor shampoo, because i noticed that a lot of the natural ingredients like Argan Oil, Lemon Grass Oil, Cedar Oil are all things i have seen her using, and i use those things for keeping my beard in good shape too lol.

    Thanks for sharing this great product review, im going to be buying this for my mum without question!

    • I’m glad that you found a good match for you mom, and I hope this shampoo gives her some relief from hair loss! thanks for the comment!

  5. Thanks for your review. I swear by argon oil after I have washed and towel tried my hair – it gives it great strength and shine. I haven’t tried an argon oil shampoo but it sounds great. I know what you mean about the greasy texture though – I have super thick hair, and I only use a wee bit of the argon oil on it because of that greasy look and feel if it is over-applied.

    • Yeah, right? I’m contemplating trying other argon oil shampoos just to see if they have a different effect. one major issue is that any shampoo that doesn’t contain sodium laurel sulfate doesn’t lather like we expect from our years of using cheap and poisonous shampoo, and this can be extra problematic if the shampoo contains actual oil. Thanks for the comment!

  6. Thank you for this review on “PURA D’OR Anti-Hair Loss Premium Organic Argan Oil Shampoo, this sounds like a wonderful product and I am going to make sure I get this for my brother who has some thinning hair, maybe it will help him from losing anymore hair.

  7. Appreciate this review Penelope. I love the product you recommend as I have had such great results with my thinning top.
    The biggest thing with products like this is the smell. I’m all for citrus perfumey type shampoo. But how herby is it really?

    • It’s fairly herby, because of the clary sage and cedarwood. It’s balanced with the citrus, I do think the smell was one of the best things about it when I was using this shampoo.

  8. Thank you for this! While I haven’t tried this particular brand, I do love Argon Oil for my hair… it DOES seem to make it extremely soft. However, just as you experienced, I felt that it made it “greasier” quicker. I could not STAND that fact. I usually like to wash every third day, but I could not even think about that with the Argon Oil shampoo that I did use!

    Have you tried any shampoos for hair strength that you felt did not increase the “greasiness” of your hair?

  9. This shampoo must be a great product. Argon oil is really good for hair growth and having this oil in shampoo is something really beneficial. Thank you for sharing this with us…

  10. I have heard a few good things about Argan oil so this product is very interesting. I would love to use this shampoo as a way to keep my hair healthy before hair loss begins. Thanks for the info!

  11. This review is short and cute. Just the way I like em ;).
    I will avoid derivative of the hormone testosterone or DHT at all costs from now on.
    Question: why do they add DHT to shampoo if it’s counterintuitive?

    • DHT is a byproduct of testosterone made by our bodies. Good hair loss shampoos include ingredients known to BLOCK DHT, because this helps protect our hair. Thanks for reading!

  12. I like your review, concise and to the point.
    I prefer reviews where you describe your experience with the product, specially when involves something that goes directly in contact with your body.
    I kind of want to try it, but just as you mentioned it made your hair get oily sooner, i tend to have that problem with most shampoos. And it is a bit expensive, but i never know unless i try right?
    I will consider it, so thank you for sharing your review!

    • Thanks for reading about my experience using Pura d’or! Definitely come back and let us know what you think of it if you try it out!
