I really like this shampoo/conditioner. it cleans hair and its great for inbetween washes. i use regular shampoo once a week and this one twice a week as it's mild and sulfate free. it gets the oiliness out. it doesnt leave the hair as shiny as regular shampoo does but the hair gets clean and nongreasy
I'm also on the fence about this product. It seems to work way better than Wen on my hair but, as with all cleansing balms I have tried, I have to go back to regular shampoo after a couple of uses. If I use it continually for more than 2-3 washes, my hair appears greasy. I will probably keep buying it to use as an option to shampoo when my hair needs a break from shampooing.
I am on the fence on this product. I probably would have rated it 3.5 if I could. I have used Wen off and on for years and like the idea of a cleansing conditioner (Wen was too expensive and time consuming for me). As I get older, my hair is getting drier and I find that even the most 'moisturizing' shampoos seem to dry it out. I have been using this product for about a week and a half. It cleanses my hair just fine. One of the drawbacks for me is that the scent is a bit strong - it's not a bad scent, but I don't like being able to smell it over my perfume at times. The other is that I wish it were moisturizing. It's good, but not great.
Didn't work for me. While I still have not gotten cowashing to work on my oily scalp, out of all the cowashing methods I've tried, this has produced the worst results (ie; didn't clean as well - and yes, I know all the tricks necessary when cowashing). It's also so thick that it's hard to get through your hair and onto your scalp which is necessary when cowashing. If you have a dry scalp AND dry hair, this may work for you. Love their Nourishing Shampoo but not this.
I really like this product. I have fine, wavy, color treated (damaged), medium-long hair and I loved how it left my hair feeling clean and smooth. In fact, I usually dread trying to get a comb through my just washed hair and I think I actually exclaimed, "oh my god" when I could comb out my hair without any 'cones, leave-ins, or any other products. I air dried it and it looked smooth and shiny. As for the scent, I can see that this scent really polarizes people. You either love it or hate it and luckily I super love it. It totally does smell like Bath & Body Works' Warm Vanilla Sugar, as other reviewers have noted. My only complaint is, again like others, the packaging. The pump is waaaay too small, so hopefully they will revamp the packaging. All in all, I am thrilled with this product and will definitely repurchase. continued >>
This is better then Wen. I have very dry hair and do not like to wash every day but usually on day 2 or 3 my hair feels like straw, with this it gets better every day,yes a little more oily on the scalp but nothing that a shot of dry shampoo (or in my case because I am light blonde, baby powder) cannot fix. I was skeptical but try it, especially if you have dry hair.
It smelled fantastic, to me at least. I have short, wavy color-treated hair that tends to frizz and bought this to use while on a month long trip to Texas and Louisiana. It was an unseasonably warm and wet February and I was sharing living space with 15 other adults so I figured that a cleansing conditioner would save me a few minutes when I managed to claw through my relatives for a turn in the shower. I've used VO5 conditioners as cleansing products before so I thought I knew what to expect. I was wrong. While it smelled really good, this product left my hair both dry, frizzy and oddly sticky. At first I thought it was the Texas well water, but I had the same result with New Orleans hotel tap water. My hair wasn't clean or conditioned, it was frizzy and felt dirty. It didn't respond well to heat styling at all. But it smelled freakin' awesome.
I don't like this product on a lot of levels. I hate the scent. It doesn't do anything for my hair except dry out the ends. The pump sucks. I guess I don't have anything nice to say so I'm not going to say anything else.
My hair is naturally a super dry, super curly 3b. I 've been using a relaxer to loosen the curl which helps quite a bit but leaves my hair fragile and even drier.
This products works great for me. After using it my hair feels cleansed AND conditioned and isn't all tangly like it is after use of a conventional shampoo.
My biggest grievance with this product is that it is so thick only a thin sliver of product pumps out at one time, and so I have pump severals time just to get enough product to cover my hair.
I don't know if I am using this product, but I have tried using it in various amounts. Just a little, a little more and a little more only to be frustrated that it really is not cleaning my hair. I can never go more than one day of washing when I use this. and when I do use it I feel greasy half-way through the day. I wanted to love this and have an all in one sulfate-free product. I think applying it to the hair and never knowing where the product is doesn't help. Adding more to the hair doesn't distribute it evenly it just makes it more gunky, as if you have too much of this on you hair I've noticed it makes my hair feel stiff and not at all manageable.
