This is a dandruff shampoo and it works without reeking like a lot of dandruff shampoos. I buy it for my 14 year old son who is the general puberty disaster most 14 year olds are so, of course, he has dandruff.
It works within one use. Cruelty free, free of the endocrine disrupters in most shampoos (thanks, but my son doesn't need estrogen), and effective... Not sure what there is to complain about. Other natural dandruff shampoos smell horrible (Jason, Burt's Bees, etc.) but this one smells good. It's on the pricey side for drugstore shampoo... I think I pay $9.99 at Target.
This shampoo and the matching conditioner helped my hair soo much. I'm in 8th grade and every girl in my class had shiny perfect hair by using cheap brands and things like herbal essences. Those shampoos never worked for me... Then i tried this, which was around $8 a bottle. It helped by detangling my hair and making it soo unbelievabley shiny. If you want hair that detangled, soft, and shiny i would totally recomend this product! And its not very diffficult to squeeze out the last bit of product.
Yes to Carrots Shampoo keeps your scalp from being too dry. Works well for slightly flaky scalps.
This is a basic shampoo that is cruelty and sulfate free...these are the selling points to me...otherwise there's nothing special about it. $10 from Walgreens for 16.9 fl oz. I experimented with it for only a week (three washes).
Not bad but it's too drying for my hair and scalp. If it wasn't advertised as a sulfate free shampoo, I would have thought it was a super cheap, regular (read: sulfate) shampoo...that's how it strikes me: it lathers very well and cuts through oil and hair products as well as any sulfate shampoo. I can't stand the scent on my dried hair and this will prevent repurchase. continued >>
Oh my gosh. I can't understand why this has such a bad ratting! I love this stuff! I'm going cruelty free and this stuff is amazing! It's a bit of a splurge for a cheapsake like myself, but It isn't too bad. I pay about 8 or 9 dollars for a bottle. It last a while too, so I don't feel too bad for spending the money.
That being said, this stuff leaves my hair so soft and smooth. I also really like the sent of it. For a natural product it suds up well too. I've tried a few cruelty free hair products and they just dried out my hair. I have oily-ish hair and wash daily and this doesn't overly dry or cause it to be more oily.
I'd recommend, but I'd say would you should use the matching conditioner (as with most sets) for best results.
I just bought my second bottle today!
This is my HG shampoo, to be honest. It works so well for me. I have very oily hair, and it gets rid of all that. But, at the same time, my hair is REALLY dry. This doesn't dry my hair out like most shampoos do. It doesn't weigh my hair down.
I just finished my first bottle along with the conditioner, and I will repurchase. The only two products that really keep my hair healthy!
This shampoo is very basic. That being said, it cleaned my scalp without overly drying out my hair, and that's all I can ask for as far as a shampoo goes. And with THAT being said, I can get a shampoo that does that for much cheaper, so I probably won't rebuy this after I finish the bottle off.
The conditioner's bomb.com, tho...
I really wanted to like this shampoo - I loved how it smelled, and how it left my hair. But I had an allergic reaction - small red patches all along my hairline. Like I said, I really wanted to like this shampoo, but it was just too harsh for me - ironic, since my primary motivation for trying it was that I'm trying to switch to sulfate-free shampoos and use gentler products on my hair.
I am generally happy with how this cleans my hair; it gets it very clean, doesn't over-dry, and doesn't weigh it down. However, I have never had a shampoo burn my eyes the way this one does. If the tiniest bit of extremely diluted shampoo happens to get in my eyes they burn and turn bright red. I am also not fond of the scent--it smells very perfumey, like a sickly-sweet baby powder. And finally, the bottle design is...odd. I will use up what I've got, but I don't think I'll buy it again.
I liked this shampoo. I'm about half through a bottle, and while it's not a miracle, I don't have picky hair either. I have fine curly hair, and this seems to clean my hair just fine. I don't straighten or blow dry my hair, so maybe it's just in better condition to start with than other people's hair.
EDIT: My hair has been feeling and looking differently, too frizzy for sure. The only thing I changed was my shampoo and conditioner to the Yes to Carrots Nourishing/Pampering ones, and I have to say I won't be repurchasing this product.
