I didn't like this shampoo after one wash... found it make my hair greasy faster. However, maybe that was just it's way of removing previous build-up (??).... Because with each wash I grew to love it! Besides smelling awesome, it leaves my hair bouncy and soft!
I won this in a gift basket with a lot of other Arbonne products. It was a great gift to win! Anyway, I've lots of other shampoos I use and because I have a LOT of hair, I prefer buying brands I can get at the beauty/hairdressers' supply store because I like to purchase 1.5 litre bottles so the size of this shampoo makes it something I'd be less likely to repurchase, as is the method of purchasing - I don't really like having to go through that process. But the product itself is very nice. It cleans effectively without over-drying my hair and it is also labelled as safe for coloured hair. But the thing I really like about it is that it works super-nicely as a body wash as well! The first time I used it, I forgot to take my body wash into the shower with me so I used this instead (I know Paula Begoun used to be a big advocate of this, proclaiming that separate body wash products weren't necessary). It lathers beautifully and rinses away without leaving any sort of residue on the skin. The very light - almost imperceptible scent - is pleasing too.
A little does go a long way so long as your hair is super wet. I usually have a few shampoos on the go so a bottle typically won't last this long, but I purchased this 9 months ago and I just finished it (and I usually double wash). The first thing I noticed is that it makes your hair very shiny. I found it a little more drying on my ends than other shampoos, but not overly concerning. I would definitely buy it again.
I really didn't want to like this product because it is a bit expensive. I've been on the hunt for a new shampoo and conditioner for the last year. Every shampoo I've tried has either weighed my hair down or made it super dry. I've tried drugstore and salon products. I have long fine color treated hair. My scalp tends to be sensitive and oily while my ends tend to be dry. My hair usually rejects a product within a week of using it.
With the first use of the shampoo my hair felt a little dry after and tangly. You don't need much shampoo just the size of a quarter. With each use of the shampoo & conditioner my hair became more and more manageable. This leaves my hair feeling light,soft and healthy. My hair isn't that oily either after using this. After using it a month I am hooked. Despite being so costly for a 10oz bottle I will repurchase. A little shampoo goes a long way. I just shampoo the top of my head will a quarter sized amount. My hair is midway down my back. The shampoo doesn't lather well but it's sulfate free so I knew it wouldn't. I highly recommend trying this with the shampoo.
