Vichy Dercos Oil Control Shampoo Review


I have oily scalp and rough hair that tends to get limp within a day of shampooing. While searching for a shampoo to help control sebum, I came across Vichy Dercos Oil Control Shampoo available at a popular online store (Nykaa). It was available at a heavy discount and positive rating. I decided to try it out. I have used the entire 200 ml bottle over a span of the last 2 months and I would like to review the shampoo in this post.

First of all, I would like to state that the shampoo is very expensive. Priced at Rs 1700 for 200ml, it is certainly not a pocket-friendly option.  However, it is quite effective.

This transparent shampoo comes in a white plastic bottle with green label and flip-top cap. The shampoo lathers well when used on wet hair and helps impart a squeaky clean feeling. It cleanses the scalp and hair of grease and impurities thoroughly. Hair feels lighter, for a longer period of time. This shampoo helps control sebum secretion to a good extent. It also delays oiliness.


  • Pleasant fragrance
  • Sturdy packaging
  • Oil-control formula
  • Imparts squeaky clean feeling
  • Cleanses grease and impurities
  • Hair feels lighter
  • No silicone
  • Imparts volume and shine to hair
  • Gentle enough for frequent use



  • Expensive
  • I wish it delayed oiliness even longer, especially because it comes at such a high price! Hair needs to be washed at a gap of 2 days (while in case of other shampoos, like the Biotique Green Apple Shampoo, I have to wash hair every alternate day )
  • Not very easily available in local stores



An effective shampoo that helps control sebum and cleanse hair of all impurities, Vichy Dercos Oil Control Shampoo is a must try if you wish to revive your dull and lifeless hair that gets oily and limp for those over-active sebaceous glands. However, it is very costly. Rating would be 4.5 out of 5. While the shampoo is highly recommended, I am not sure if I would repurchase it because it is so very high-priced!
