Whoo boy, is this product ever pricey. For a small bottle I paid over $11. Normally I can buy shampoo for half that and get twice as much. What I will say is, it's worth the extra dough. And I've seen on here that at iherb it's only around five dollars so providing the shipping isn't too expensive I could possibly save.
I have been using this for several weeks now, and waited to post my review because of this. I wanted to be sure of my thoughts on the product before I commented. I have jumped the gun on reviews before.
I usually wash all of my hair from scalp to ends, and I am learning that with this shampoo it is not necessary. If you're like me and have oily roots but dry ends, a good scalp scrub will do the trick. If your hair is very greasy it might be good to do it twice.
I use Giovanni's 50/50 conditioner on my ends and midshaft. I find this combo works perfectly. Let the conditioner sit for a few while you wash and whatnot for good results.
This gives me crazy shiny, much less itchy hair!
One of the best shampoos I have ever used.
-no harsh ingredients
-made hair shiny, soft, and silky
-i had lots of great second-day hair again
-couldn't find it local (bleh)
-price ($9-10) but you dont use a lot
I shampoo my curls every 3 days, so I don't go through this very fast. It's a great buy. I wish it was here locally because then I could get it for $6. Anyways, it was great! Loved it!
I love this shampoo!!! I've been hunting for a sulfate free shampoo that's not crazy expensive for years. This is the first one I actually like!! My hair shines and looks beautiful! I can't say enough!!
I love this shampoo. I started using this because my scalp is extremely oily. I'd wash my hair in the morning and by night time I had to wash it again, smelly oily hair and I could not even dream of skipping a day. I also lost a lot of hair with every wash and then a whole bunch more when brushing it. It was not normal amounts. Ever since I started using this the hair fall is a lot less and I don't have to wash my hair daily. I can go 2 days sometimes even 3 days without washing my hair. Just throw a shower cap on and jump in for a quick 3 min shower. I usually wash my hair and leave the shampoo in for about 5 min or so while I do everything else then rinse condition the ends of my hair and I'm all done. I love it! I love the minty smell and the tingling feeling on my scalp. It doesn't weigh my hair down and it has really helped my scalp. I will continue to buy this again and again. It's a bit pricey about 12 bucks a bottle but for my hair i will pay anything to keep my hair healthy and on my head rather than on my hair brush. Remember to leave in in for a few min before rinsing!
I've started to use sulfate free shampoo about a year ago when I had my first Brasilian Blowout, I was told that I was suppose to use a sulfate free shampoo for the blowout to last longer.
I initially didn't like this shampoo, actually I didn't like sulfate free shampoo at all, because I prefer a foamy shampoo and most sulfate free shampoos doesn't lather well.
I've been using sulfate free shampoo for nearly a year now, and it has actually grown on me, the first thing that I've learn was to wash my hair twice, the first time it won't lather well, but for the second time when most of the dirt has been removed it will be really foamy.
Although I no longer have Brasilian's blowout, I'm still using this shampoo, especially during the summer, because it leaves my hair and scalp really clean and fresh, and since it has peppermint on it, the cooling effect feels really good on the hot summer days.
I have such mixed feelings about this product! I'm just going to go ahead and review the conditioner as well here. Ok, so I've been on the hunt for a good tingling, minty shampoo and conditioner duo. I wanted something like pureology's hydrate conditioner, which is amazing. I bought this thinking it would be similar. I don't know why, but neither the shampoo or conditioner makes my scalp tingle at all! I even leave the conditioner on for at least 5 minutes and i've used them several times! It's so weird. I think the products are very good, don't get me wrong...my hair looks great after I shower and it's really soft, but it's not exactly what I'm looking for. I also HATE the packaging. It's so awkward and hard to get product out with the lid in the way. I am really glad they're cruelty free and organic though...so like I said, really on the fence with this!
The tea tree aspect is really refreshing for a dry scalp. I have very thick wavy hair and this increased the dryness post shower. I always use a deep conditioner after so not too big of a deal. The deal breaker for me was the breakouts it caused. I have never broken out so bad from a shampoo before. Acne all along my hair line and on my temples.
My boyfriend bought this for his dandruff. It smells like menthol/tea tree. It feels so nice in the shower, its tingly and refreshing and does help itchy scalp. It made my thick hair really bouncy and shiny.The bottle is a very awkward rectangle shape which sucks in the shower. but overall is a good product that i use once and a while.
I love this shampoo. I'll never use another. It's vegan, it lathers up perfectly, it tingles and seems to refresh my senses c: it cleans up very well without leaving my hair unbearably dry. Honestly, give it a try! I'm so picky about my shampoos and this is one I can use safely every single day and not worry about my hair's health.
Also, it's really worth trying other products from Giovanni. Their hair products have come to dominate my shower- I have this shampoo, the Golden Wheat shampoo, the Root 66 Volume conditioner, the spray-in conditioner, the Nutrafix hair masque, the hair thickening gel, etc. All of them are high-quality and I wouldn't hesitate to purchase them again.
Actually bought this product for my son who is suffering from dandruff, tried everything from Aveda Scalp Benefits to California Baby nothing seemed to work for him. I wont say this product worked 100% but his scalp issues are much better than before. I like this shampoo, lathers well, moisturizing does not leave a scrunchy effect. On the whole nice shampoo.
UPDATE**** Changing it to 5 star rating..very moisturizing shampoo for me, soft silky hair..
