I tried this out while on vacation. Although I usually opt for a totally SLS-free hair routine (no lauryl or laureth at all) I decided to try this. If you are not stringent about green products, this is really excellent. It is a very thick and creamy shampoo that lathers very well. I read complaints about scent?? This stuff and the others I have tried all smell like sweet orange oil/neroli and I just read they contain grapefruit essence; very inoffensive, smells darn good to me! So much better and energizing than generic fruity or vanilla scents. This really lathered and cleaned well; I think I put too much on really. I have a very sensitive scalp with a small spot of sebborheic dermatitis and this did not aggravate my scalp or sd at all (although ymmv!). I do think after using SLS-free shampoo, and only washing every other day that my scalp felt a little too stripped for me (but not in a harsh way). My hair on the other hand felt great! Not stripped, frizzy or dry at all! I was totally shocked. All in all, this shampoo felt very rich and luxurious, my hair was still moisturized after using this. It's also slightly pink in color, which is well...just cute! The price is on par with salon products, not cheap not prohibitively expensive. I probably wouldn't buy this again because I'm not crazy about shampoos (although conditioners and leave-ins are a different story), but for curly color treated hair this might be excellent.
