I'm so disappointed! I bought this shampoo based on the glowing reviews here and elsewhere on the internet. I expected it to give me soft, fluffy, healthy and shiny looking hair but as I was rinsing it out in the shower my hair felt... squeaky? I continued with the conditioner, hoping it would remedy the dryness and tangles I felt, but as I was blowdrying my hair felt anything but mega-rich. My hair didn't look horrible, but it wasn't as shiny as it can be with certain shampoos, and actually looked a bit frizzy in the back. Reading the label, I was disappointed that it contains SLS and is made in China. It has a nice unisex scent, almost like men's cologne, so I could see this working for both sexes. However, at this price point I don't think this is worth it. If you're looking for a similar shampoo with biotin, try the Organix thick & full shampoo and conditioner (Dark purple bottle, gold cap)- my hair likes that one much better! For reference I have fine, slightly wavy, non-color treated hair.
Just like the other I came across this gem at The Hilton and it was incredible. Generally I use Matrix Biolage shampoo which worked well but not as well as PTR, I needed less product of PTR to clean my hair of all the buildup on my scalp and it moisturized/hydrated better than the biolage.
Full disclosure -- I didn't purchase the PTR Mega Rich Shampoo. I stayed at the Hilton this past week and they supply it to their guests in the rooms. Boy, not all shampoos are created equal. I was blown away by how soft and shiny it left my hair, but didn't lose any body. It's tricky to find shampoo that doesn't flatten my straight hair, and keeps it balanced and moisturized. Since I color my hair, it has a tendency to get dry. I've tried Pureology and lots of other high end shampoos and conditioners, but this one really impressed me. I strongly recommend it and will be purchasing it after using up the samples!
My grandmother bought this for me when she ordered some for herself, and I am so glad she did! This has easily become my HG daily shampoo! I still love my B&b Gentle shampoo, but this beats it. The nice ingredients, the lovely soft smell, and it leaves my hair clean but moisturized and not stripped. My hair is always so shiny when I use this, and people compliment it when I use it! One woman told me that she "couldn't keep her eyes from not looking at how great my hair looked!" It's pricey, but you don't need much, and it's cheaper than Bumble and Bumble!
I tried the PTR Mega-Rich Shampoo & Conditioner when I was in a hotel in Boston and thought my hair seemed waaaay softer when using it. Then recently my boyfriend brought it home from one of the hotels he'd stayed at while on business and once again, my hair felt verrrry soft while using it. I will definitely be buying both the shampoo & the condition in full size.... really nice stuff...
I tried this for 6 days during a vacation - PTR was the toiletry kit provided byt the otel (nice!). Meanwhile, the Mega-Rich shampoo seemed to be a pretty basic, pleasant smelling shampoo that works fine on my color-treated , fine, dry hair. It did NOT seem to strip my color, and was not drying. I might actually buy a full sized bottle ($18 for 8.5 ounces on the PTR site). Not bad.
