My Experience
I had read many reviews of this product and bought this one with huge expectations. No offence intended to the reviews I read but unfortunately, the product did not at all turn out the way I had expected. That taught me something new (more in some other post, keep a look out!!). Anyways, I have used the product with and without conditioner so one thing which remains imprinted in my memory after using this product is that it dries out my scalp so much that my scalp cries out for moisture. Seriously!!

No, you should never skip the conditioner because it can turn back the damage caused by the shampoo. But, this shampoo dried out my hair a lot and made it rough like jhadoo (broom). Before using this, I has used the Dove Nourishing Oil Range and Pantene Total Damage Range and they both had kept my hair so soft and silky and shiny. This shampoo actually removed all those results and I seriously feel bad to talk like this about this product.

Speaking on the positive side, it does leave the hair feeling softer when you feel your hair in bulk but the ends are not so really soft!!! Even when wet, the ends of my hair (my hair is cut in layers) always felt rough on being touched. I don't know how to explain that but I do hope you get the idea. And, probably, a little shine does get added to the hair but I am not so very sure of that. But, there was no hair fall or any other side effect.

If you are using this and you have dry hair, you should really use a lot of deep conditioning treatments and softening treatments for your hair and especially the ends. I would say that if you have dry hair, you should definitely skip this product. And, I am going to use the rest of my shampoo for pedicure or some other purpose because I hate to throw away products.
