I've heard a lot of things about sulfates in shampoos and how they are basically the devil. So, I've been on a quest to find a good one that would also help me have to shampoo less often. I read countless reviews of products and this shampoo was the only one where the reviews mentioned specifically that it helps your hair be less oily between shampoos. So, I picked this up at Ulta.
Going from my super-sudsy shampoo to this was interesting. You really have to get used to the idea that sulfate free shampoos just do not lather the same and that's ok. But your hair gets squeaky clean. Literally! I have definately noticed a decrease in the amount of sebum being produced, which is exactly what I was hoping for.
However, I can't really say that it's helping my hair grow. But if, from what I've read is true, having a clean scalp promotes hair growth is true than perhaps I'll notice a difference later.
I cannot tell you how much I LOVE this product! This is the second time I have boughten it! My hair gets crazy build up which causes it to become dull.. After using this product the overall health of my hair is transformed! My hair does not get oily nearly as fast as it would with other shampoo / conditioners and it is always so shiny while using it. Also my scalp feels freaking awesome! I'm not sure I've noticed my hair growing any faster (it already grows like crazy) but like I said before just the overall health of my hair is better (including new growth)
Nooooo thanks. I have normal sometimes oily hair that I only wash every other day. This shampoo and the matching conditioner made my hair so dry and frizzy! I was drawn in by the "long & strong", hoping that this would help my shoulder length hair grow faster. Maybe it does. But after using up the whole shampoo and conditioner my hair was just dry. It felt unhealthy. I'll stick to my regular suave and coconut oil masks once a week for healthy hair and growth.
Love it! At night (or in the morning) you can wash your hair with this shampoo and conditioner and for 24 hrs, your hair will feel silky smooth like satin.as far as the length part, no shampoo can ever make your hair grow new hair, BUT, it can help it grow a little bit faster than usual, and this product does! The shampoo and conditioner only costs $4.74 at Walmart, as well as the other Not Your Mother's hair products! Thumbs up!!
I love this product!! my hair is very short and I've only been using this product for a few weeks and my hair has already been growing, usually it takes my hair months to grow a few inches
This stuff was HORRIBLE for me. I initially tried it with the matching conditioner... and my hair immediatley became a fuzzy, nappy mess. So I stopped using the conditioner, and decided just to use the shampoo. And my hair was still the same; very, VERY tangled and dry... 'fuzzy' when it dried and my hair is NEVER like that. As for the smell, it was tolerable.. nothing that stood out as bad or good to me. Certainly didn't smell like candy as some reviewers stated.
I then switched right back to my usual stuff and everything was fine.
I used this for about a week... so I obviously did not see if my hair grew or not.. but either way I would DEFINTLEY not recommend this AT ALL.. the shampoo or conditioner. I have very fine, easily damaged hair, so if you have the same, I'd steer clear of this all together.
After reading the other reviews on the Shampoo, I'm thinking there may have been a packaging error in the set I bought, unless the formula was changed, because many have mentioned that their Shampoo smelled really nice like strawberries and cream, however, mine reminds me of lemon pledge... not a good smell for hair. Also, I've found that it makes my hair incredibly flat (I have 'sleek' hair anyway, but this product really flattens it out), and doesn't' moisturize the ends well- the tangling I've experienced with this product is ridiculous. All in all, it's not the worst shampoo I've ever used, and I'll finish the bottle, but I won't repurchase.
I wasn't sure about this product at first but after having been using it for a few months I can now say that this is a HG product for me. I recently donated my hair and was looking for a product that would keep my hair in good shape to help me grow it out, and this did not disappoint.
First things first, this is not a product that will magically make you grow Rapunzel-like hair overnight. It is meant to keep you hair strong and healthy by preventing breakage to help your hair grow out. For me, it took some getting used to since I had never used a sulfate free shampoo before. It doesn't get as sudsy as shampoos I had used previously, but that doesn't mean it isn't working. The smell, to me, wasn't too strong or obnoxious either. The only downside for me is the price. Truthfully, it's not outrageously expensive (about $5 at Ulta), but being a college student it definitely is a step up in the price range from the one dollar stuff I was using before.
Aside from getting used to the less-sudsy texture of the shampoo, I found that my hair actually had to adapt to it, something which I'm guessing also has to do with the lack of sulfates. For about the first week or two I used it, I didn't feel too much of a difference in my hair texture. Around the end of he second week I noticed my hair started to feel a little dried out, which made me panic, but seeing as it was the only shampoo I had, I kept using it. By the third week though, I'm not sure what happened but my hair suddenly changed and got used to the shampoo or something. It look smoother and shinier, and felt incredibly soft and thick and it has felt that way ever since. The only other products I use on my hair are Suave Naturals Shea conditioner and Pantene BB cream.
I am especially impressed by the fact that it has kept my health feeling and looking healthy for months, despite daily blowdrying and styling and not having any ends trimmed. My hair doesn't knot or feel brittle ever, and I have really noticed that I don't lose hair anymore like I used to. Additionally, I had my hair colored last month and this shampoo hasn't caused and dulling or fading in the color whatsoever. I love this product and I have already recommended to all of my friends.
I've only been using this for about two weeks, so I have not seen any length results yet. However, it has made my hair so soft and silky! My hair tends to be very oily, but using this gives me shiny hair, and doesn't look greasy at all. I feel like it is a bit drying at times, so I switch around shampoos. From other reviews, the shampoo either dries out or makes hair oily. Overall, the smell is really good, it makes my hair look soft and shiny, and I am really looking forward to trying the conditioner!
I paid $30 for this shampoo and I was expecting it to be amazing since I'd seen so many great reviews on it! when I first washed my hair using it , it felt amazing and my hair dried perfect naturally . However, I noticed how quickly my hair got oily. This is a love hate product, love the way it makes my hair look and feel but hate the lasting power and oiliness. The smell is like strawberries and cream, it's so nice and it lathers up well (:
If you have dry hair this shampoo be your best friend, if you oily hair I'd stay away from it ..
