The smell. THE SMELL! The smell is SO overwhelming..! Prepare for a rant please--my apologies in advance. I am a lover of all things Phyto, and this shampoo is a huge disappointment. I'm not sensitive to smell, so that's not it. I looked up some reviews on Amazon first, and many mentioned the "light" fragrance of this shampoo. On the contrary, this shampoo is more heavily scented than ANY other personal care product I have ever used. It's like washing your hair with actual perfume that happens to also foam up with water. In fact, it was so intense it gave me a sharp headache, and made it hard to sleep that night (I shower in the morning) because the smell of my own hair was so strong. The scent never fades, not all day, not at all, and here is the kicker: I washed it out the next day with a different shampoo, TWICE, and a conditioner...AND THE SCENT OF THIS SHAMPOO IS STILL IN MY HAIR. :0 What in the hell?! It's like that Seinfeld episode where Elaine picks up a bad odor in her hair from Jerry's car and nothing she does can wash the smell out. This fragrance WILL NOT die...like this fragrance ain't leaving you for love or for money...and it's not a pleasant, natural fragrance. It's like one of those strong synthetic-y perfumes from the 80's--like Giorgio or Red Door, etc. Furthermore, whatever is in the formula (I'm guessing it's the freakish amount of fragrance) caused my neck to feel coated and kind of like I had a sunburn. After showering the skin on my hands and arms was abnormally dry...it even made my cuticles dry out completely the way dishwashing liquid can. And strangest of all (and I had read an Amazon review that said the same thing, and just assumed they were crazy), it made my scalp "sore". Like not allergic sore, but a strange ache, like how a sore muscle feels. But...my scalp. So yeah, a headache, burning neck, and sore scalp--which I didn't know could even be a thing. In the meantime, my roots didn't get very clean after 2 full washes, and my hair looked...not great. No special shine or volume or any of that Phyto magic I've come to love over the years. Just kind of fuzzy and crunchy. Probably because I basically washed my hair with A BOTTLE OF FOAMING PERFUME. Phyto, I love you, I love your products, but this one really needs a revamp. :( If you can use this shampoo without being driven to insanity by the scent, God bless because you are a gifted and special individual. PS-This shampoo also gave me a lot of fall-out in the shower, probably because: Perfume.

This is a really nice leave-in product that would work great for fine or easily weighed down hair. It's called a lightweight oil but the texture feels more like a light gel-cream moisturizer that you might use on your face. I have fine, 2B frizzy waves and I've been using this over the past few months. I love that it gives me moisture without weighing my waves down. It also layers well with other styling products. I typically apply it too damp hair (before my usual styling products) but I have also applied it dry hair to tame frizz. It works well both ways. I also like that this is free of heavy silicones. My one complaint is that this contains sunflower seed oil, which can be drying for some hair types. My hair can't handle pure sunflower seed oil but it does alright with it in this base. However if Phyto decided to take it out and swap it with a different oil, I wouldn't complain :) otherwise, I think it's a great product. It's pricey at $40, but my bottle has lasted a long time.

Great conditioning mask, I really like this one a lot. It's not HG, but it's still really good. I think this would be good for anyone with dry hair. It is very moisturizing! Has a creamy but not-too-thick texture. Provides a nice amount of slip, detangles easily, and rinses out nicely. For reference I have hair that is thick, wavy-textured, color-treated, and I heat-style it regularly. It has a tendency to get dried out so I'm always on the lookout for good moisturizing conditioners. This one is a winner for me!Leaves my hair very soft & smooth, and I would buy it again. Recommended!

A very gentle shampoo that lathers well but does not dry out hair. I have fine, dry hair and an easily irritated scalp. This product leaves my hair clean but not feeling stripped. It did not add moisture to my hair and I did not notice any difference in the way my hair looked when dry.

This product is expensive and does absolutely nothing. I have no idea how you can add a lotion to your hair and have it feel exactly the same afterward.
