This is actually a very good, gentle shampoo for my hair. It cleans well without making my hair feel stripped and is not dulling. The smell is amazing- very citrusy and perfect for the summer. I was looking for the ruby red grapefruit scent but couldn't find it so I bought this scent instead. It is a strong scent and does linger in my hair so a note of caution for those who cannot tolerate strong scented items. This is considered a natural shampoo, so it isn't entirely organic. I love the bright bottles and the fact that it has a flip cap. It lathers just enough and it usually retails for about eight dollars and some change but I was able to get this for five dollars at CVS, so I recommend waiting for sales.
First, the scent is wonderful and long-lasting; it's an absolute pleasure to breathe as I wash my hair. It's a citrus-y blood orange fragrance that smells nice inside the bottle and out.
The consistency and texture of the shampoo is a little thin and slightly runny, but smooth and actually lathers pretty well.
Overall, this product left my hair shiny, soft, and hydrated. I would definitely purchase again (I actually stocked up with six bottles of shampoo and conditioner during a clearance event at my local Walgreens).
This product is not what I would consider "all natural" by any means, but since natural is a relative, broad term we'll go with it. It does contain some fragrance which a rep. said is naturally derived. It also contains a less harsh sulfate (sodium coco-sulfate which is essentially the same thing as sodium lauryl sulfate, just not as a strong). It DOES NOT contain parabens, phthalates or petrochemicals because no one likes excess formaldehyde or reproductive system altering chemicals. I'll tolerate certain sulfates in some of my items (I pick and choose); I'm more wary of petrochemicals and parabens.
