If you're suffering from thin hair or androgenetic alopecia, this shampoo is a Godsend. Seriously! I have been battling thinning, lifeless, dull, stringy, crappy hair for 5 years due to menopause and androgenetic alopecia. I've lost 50 percent of the hair I was once blessed with. I have spent a fortune on every product out there that claims to help with such. This is the *ONLY* shampoo I've found that improves the thickness (volume) and texture of my hair. I buy it by the case on Amazon for fear that the company will some day discontinue it or change the formula like so many companies do. Organix, if you're reading, please, PLEASE don't ever do away with this product or change anything about it.
I will say that I'm not a big fan of the conditioner, it leaves my hair too tangled and frizzy. I use Pantene Volume Conditioner. I use it sparingly and it detangles my hair and takes care of most of the frizz without weighing it down.
Another thing that has drastically helped my pathetic aging hair is that I quit having my hair professionally colored. Even the top salons were damaging my hair (probably due to the fact that I couldn't get it through their heads that thin, aging hair processes WAY faster than normal hair). I now color my own hair with Sally's AGEbeautiful line (I know, some of you are cringing right now), and I only process it for half the time. Even you young girls with thinning hair would benefit from using AGEbeautiful.
So I will edit this review as I experience the product!
Buying the product it is a cute bottle and WONDERFUL smell!
Washing for the first time: I just washed my hair with it and my hair smells and looks wonderful, not tangling at all and seems soft and manageable! So far 5 stars! I hope it keeps my hair clean and non-oily for the next 24 hours!
24hrs After Washed: Still soft and manageable! No tangles throughout the day and my hair did not get super greasy by the end of the day like some shampoos do with my hair. Also I kept breaking out on my forehead from my last shampoo and so far no new acne with this shampoo! So still 5 stars! See you in 1 week!
1 Week Washing: Still my same rating! Doesn't make my hair oily, or a tangled mess. So far love it and how it smells! Would recommend for anyone who has oily straighter hair.
i quite like this shampoo, on the first wash it did strip my hair a bit, but after conditioner, my hair was soft, shiny and even a little more voluminous after air-drying. this is more of a clarifying shampoo, it's not meant for daily use or you'll end up with hair like hay. but using this once a week is great for your hair. it clears up all the oil and buildup,and gives your hair a little volume. it smells great too.
This is a terribly harsh shampoo. I wanted to like it as I prefer to use more natural products when possible, but no, this was a failure. It is super drying, to my hair, scalp and skin. It left my scalp super irritated and with a dry skin issue. I don't typically have a manageability problem with my hair, but this caused a dry and frizzy mess. I have a lot of long fine straight hair, not dry nor oily (I wash every 2-3 days), for what it's worth. I don't find this shampoo even cleanses well. The texture of the shampoo is a thick gummy gel, which was rather unpleasant. The scent was kind of fake smoke-ish, too strong and unpleasant as well.
This product has now become my regular shampoo. It does not foam as much as other shampoos due to the decreased sulphates, but even using the tiniest amount my hair still feels cleaner. It is gentle and never gives me the 'stripped' feeling that dries and distresses my hair, which is fantastic. I use it in conjunction with the Cherry Blosssom and Ginseng conditioner and would happily recommend this shampoo to anyone who is seeking a different product. Bonus: It also smells wonderful!
I really wanted to love this but, meh. Smells good, but I seem to always have a bad hair day when I use this. Won't buy again.
aaaah my love, amazing shampoo, love love love this shampoo,
i used this sometimes on its own or sometimes do a combo with some random shampoo that i wanna clear up so badly, however i found it difficult to get it here is singapore=(( which is sad
No...just no. This shampoo is horrible for my hair. I bought it because I'm on a hunt for a good sulfate free shampoo. L'Oreal's EverPure shampoo caused a lot of hair fallout, so I tried this one. After I rinsed the shampoo out I couldn't believe what a poof of tangles my hair was. I hoped that the matching conditioner would detangle my hair. I had to apply it to my root area, which is a big no-no for fine hair like mine, but my hair was such a tangled mess I needed conditioner from root to tip. I wasn't happy about that, and thought about what a limp mop my hair would be. Even worse, when I rinsed the conditioner out after leaving it on for a few minutes, my hair was still tangly and felt like straw. So I applied my trusty Nioxin conditioner which completely detangled it, but I had to apply it to the roots again. For some reason, I still had hope for the shampoo, thinking if I gave my hair enough time to adjust to it, it would begin to work better. For two weeks I continued the process of shampooing, applying the conditioner root to tip after my hair continued to get extremely tangled from the shampoo, then using my nioxin conditioner after the organix one didn't help. After no improvements in two weeks I don't know/care if it'll ever work. I'll hold on to the conditioner cause it might work with a better shampoo. As far as my hair turned out afterward when I let it air dry, it actually wasn't bad. It looked really shiny and silky, but with all the conditioner I have to use it's just not worth it. After my bad experiences with sulfate free shampoos I might just go back to normal shampoo. Gave this product two lipped because it smells amazing, and since its sulfate free it would be a good alternative to normal shampoos if it works for someone else.
Favorite shampoo! This is the bomb! I received a travel size sample set of this shampoo and conditioner and gave it a try. This cleanses my scalp quite well, so I always use it with the conditioner. I don't use this everyday because it can be quite drying and use it during the days I wanna doll up the next day for my hair to be softer and smoother.
Use it with the conditioner to get better results because it really just makes my oily scalp clean and my hair lightweight. I also find my hair to air dry a whole lot faster with this shampoo/conditioner combo and tangles are a lot lesser too.
Definitely recommend but this is not for daily uses.
My hair had a weird reaction to this product...it didn't dry out, but it kind of felt like it was coated in a waxy product. My hair wasn't fly away, but it was kind of...unruly and uncooperative. My hair and I have a daily battle. Normally I am able to dry, curl, tease and spray it into submission. But after washing with this product, my hair was the victor.
I had to toss a mostly full bottle out and I can say without hesitation that I would never purchase this product again.
