Stiftung Warentest

has now on the giant German

shampoo market

around and tested a total of 18 hair soaps, solid shampoos and liquid shampoos.

The solid hair products and hair

in the tests: three of them - including the 

"Honey I washed my hair" shampoo from Lush

and the

 "Solid Shampoo Normal Hair" from Foamie

- were only rated as "satisfactory" found.


 “Savion Natural Hair Soap” is

even only considered “sufficient”.

On the other hand, six other solid shampoos and all liquid test products were rated “good”.

While the

Test winner

Among the

solid shampoos was Alverde

, the house brand of the


chain DM


The product with a

tangerine and basil scent came

second in the shampoo test

with an

overall score of 2.1


While the care properties were only rated with a grade of 2.3, the testers particularly praised its ease of dosing and foam formation.

And with a grade of 1.1, the solid shampoo from

number 1 of the Stiftung Warentest

should have surprised in the end: Among all the products tested, a

discounter shampoo came out

on top.

The test winner

was the

“Cien Fruit / Vitamin Day by Day” shampoo from the

Lidl *

discount chain


With an

overall grade of 1.9

, it puts all other

hair shampoos

in the shade - even though it contains preservatives such as sodium benzoate and potassium sorbate formic acid, as well as hard-to-break silicones and ammonium compounds.

These are clearly declared so that no points were deducted from him.

In all evaluation criteria, it was obviously able to convince the test subjects the most.

In addition to the above-average positive results in

hair washing and care

, the

Cien shampoo from Lidl is

also particularly attractive in terms of price.

The bottle costs


72 cents

in the discounter, which is why the

Stiftung Warentest

should see it as a clear price-performance winner.
