Bought the shampoo alone because my last experience with a Nexxus conditioner was horrible. Anyway the shampoo is not worth the money, it does nothing for my hair and my cheaper shampoos work a lot better. Makes my hair very dry and does not fix the split ends. And the bottle is annoying to squeeze the product out..
I have a love/hate relationship with this shampoo. Less than a handful of times my hair was shiny and looked super healthy and more than a handful of times it felt brittle, weighed down and this really weird greasy/waxy feeling.. I'm a clean freak so it made me feel super dirty. The smell is one of the upsides. It reminds me of pink sugar. I feel that the shampoo bottle design helps the company cheap out on the product. I will never buy this product again.
Was super excited to try this line out. I've grown my hair out for almost 2 years now and it's super duper long so of course there are split ends. I was hoping that this would be the cure. -_- no. For a shampoo it is way too thick, should be marketed as a conditioner! This product should not be used on the roots. It made my hair flat, greasy feeling and oil up faster than usual. Only way to style my hair is to blow dry, swhich is more heat, equaling more damage to my hair. I usually always air dry my hair and with other shampoos and conditioners, my hair is soft, volumous, and flowy after air drying. With this product, even after blow drying, it feels heavy, no volume. Not worth it and does not deliver. I say, save your money, and get a haircut and rid yourself of split ends that way instead.
More a review for whole Pro-Mend line. First time in my life my ends are swingy because of this product. I've got no theory as to why this line effects people so differently but for my particular kind of hair, it is a godsend. My hair is pretty fine/thinning, gets so STRINGY, straight, and could and would form dreadlocks if I didn't touch it for a week. I'm talking chronic split ends, not just at the bottom of my past-the-shoulder do. My scalp is pain-in-the-butt oily and I have to wash every 36 hours for clean looking hair. Anyway, I use the shampoo, conditioner, mouse, serum and leave-in treatment on heavy rotation, so I can't honestly isolate the effects of this shampoo alone. My friends tell me, for the first time ever, that my hair looks great. It's as if each hair is smooth and supple enough to actually slide against one another. Argan/moroccan oil and plenty of other "moisturizing" products exacerbate the stringiness. Blunt ends also help. LOVE these products.
OMG THIS IS THE WORRRRRRRRRST shampoo and conditioner EVER MADE. It made my hair feel so heavy, dry and straw like. It was so hard to style my hair after using it. OMG THIS PRODUCT SUCKS!!!!! I never write reviews, but I felt the need to on this product because its so bad.
I tried the whole Nexxus and Tresemme split end line around the same time, and neither worked. I have some very bad split ends and roughness at the tips of my hair. I was hoping to avoid having to get a cut because I am trying to grow my hair out. But really from what I have read online and beauty shows I have seen none of these split end shampoos, conditioners, or treatments work to mend split ends. From what I have gathered all these do is bind the split ends together temporarily, but it will never heal the split ends. Sadly only trims help with split ends.
My highlighted hair broke off after using this for a week. I had 1" long hair around my temples thanks to Nexxus. Once I quit using this, no more breakage.
I wanted to like this shampoo... actually, it's the best-smelling shampoo I've ever encountered, and I wanted to LOVE this shampoo. My hair is color-treated and highlighted, and as a result it's somewhat dry, but still in good condition. And I have a LOT of it. The shampoo lather was thick and foamy, but after rinsing it out my hair felt sticky and heavy. Even after applying the conditioner my hair felt heavy and it was hard to comb through. I usually let my hair air-dry, then use a flat iron or curling iron; however, I would NOT recommend air drying with this system. You get more bounce (albeit not much more) if you just blow dry it, but be careful - my hair didn't glide over the brush like it normally does. After styling it just felt heavy... it held the curl really well, but I had to really work with it to get some volume at the roots. I hate to pitch it out - at $9.99 a bottle (from Target), it wasn't the most expensive shampoo I've ever bought (that award goes to Wen!), so I've just taken to using it once a week. I alternate that with my usual TRESemme and it seems to be a little better. If your hair is damaged and quite brittle, I would say find this on sale and give it a whirl, but there are better products out there. Also, those slender-necked Nexxus bottles always look pretty, but the shampoo is so thick it's really hard to get out. Overall, pretty dang disappointed!
Definitely not. This shampoo is advertised to mend split ends, which made me skeptical, but it was recommended to me so I gave it a shot. What a disappointment. This made my fine, wavy hair into a coarse, matted mess that was impossible to detangle. I continued using it for a few weeks to see if anything would change, but it was just terrible. After a while, my hair started to feel like straw. That has never happened with any other shampoo. I was surprised at how bad this was on my hair, especially considering the price. I may have had a particularly bad experience, but I definitely wouldn't buy this again or recommend it to anyone, especially with fine hair.
I used to straighten and blow dry my hair pretty much on a daily basis. I was in a desperate search to find a shampoo and conditioner that would get rid of my split ends as much as possible. My aunt suggested Nexxus to me, so I decided to take her advice and buy the shampoo and conditioner. I'm glad I listened because it's now one of my favourite shampoos ever! My hair started feeling more and more healthier, thicker and stronger. It also smelt amazing and lathered well. I was sad when the bottle finally finished (it lasted quite a while by the way.) and I'm definetly going to buy some more as soon as possible
