For ref, I have fine, flyaway shoulder length blonde hi-lighted hair. I bought this shampoo in a twin set with the matching conditioner and wow, im impressed. I was actually looking for the l'oreal professional shine blonde shampoo but the stylist at my hairdresser recommended this instead. I was a bit unsure but purchased it anyway.It was also half price so I ended up paying £10 for 2 huge tubs of shampoo and cond. Firstly the smell of them is amazing! The shampoo smell is slightly stronger than the cond but both are gorgeous. Together they left my hair not only smelling amazing but feeling so silky and soft (l'oreal left my hair slightly dry and 'crunchy') It feels like im running my fingers thru silk and doesnt weigh it down at all! Also this left my hair shiny and brightened up my blonde to a shiny golden light blonde wheras l'oreal would sometimes make it look kinda white. Overall this is amazing and as long as they keep selling this ill keep re buying!!
I bought the Dumb Blonde Shampoo and Reconstructor as a set for 20$. Not bad.
After I first used it, I thought it was really drying even with the Reconstructor conditioner. But, I when I let my hair dry it was smooth, soft, bouncy, and shiny! Kind of makes me think that those other conditioners like Garnier Fructis's 3 minute conditioner which makes your wet hair feel smooth, really in turn way your hair down. The Dumb Blonde duo does the job without waying it down. And the pump is good unless you are traveling with them...I hate that.
I had bought this shampoo before and liked it alot..to me it lathered well and my hair was not oily 24 hours after shampooing..I like the smell..anything too crazy smelling in the morning makes me gag and this stuff isnt too bad...I did catch a steal on it though...about a month after xmas they had the gift sets from xmas an additional 50% off the lowest price marked...so if i remember correctly I got the full size bottle of shampoo and reconstructor for $10 together in a set...So far I have had good luck with it...it doesnt dry out my hair like some of the shampoos I have tried in the past. And something that I did agree on after reading some of the reviews...the way it is packaged is great! I never thought that you actually dont waste any with the dispenser on this shampoo compared to the flip top lids.
This shampoo was so great when I first got it. I loved the smell and it lathered really well in my hair and moisturized it well too. I used it in conjunction with its conditioner and I totally believed it was worth it. My hair was in such bad shape. I had a horrible experience with a new hairdresser and she fried my hair! I constantly change my hair color, so this is great for chemically damaged hair. After a couple weeks of use, my hair began to have days where it would still feel smooth as silk and moisturized, but some days would be straw-like. But I still gave this a 4 because it made my condition of my fried hair SO MUCH BETTER.. i mean like 10x better!! My hair was in such bad shape, it actually broke off when the hairdresser put highlights in my hair!! (It was as if I had bangs all over my head) I wanted to cry and this saved everything :) If you use another conditioner (just a plain moisturizing one, I used zero frizz from a drugstore and pantene [alternated days]) after the dumb blonde reconstructing conditioner, you'll still have the silky smooth hair after your shower, along with much much healthier hair!
love this stuff,love it. I just went back to my natural medium blonde shade and bought this and fell in LOVE> I love the smell of this stuff the pineapple scent.only thing is my hair felt a bit dry after using it(just a BIT) but then Id also put my hair through major major hell with bleaching the black and green out and going blonde at home myself,thanks much lol. as i feel it now its very very soft and shiny.as long as i use a good conditioner with this(which i always condition-whether its alone or with shampooing) ill be fine.
highly recommend this!
Well all I can say is that it smelled good! This shampoo is terrible! It was so drying on my hair! It looks like straw it actually made my hair dry! I am deff. trashing this shampoo as soon as possible.
Argh... My hair simply hated this shampoo - and also hated me for trying it. It made my hair very dry and super hard to detangle. The smell is strong and awful! Don't know what I was thinking when I bought it.
AGHH!! i hated this. my hair was dry and unmanagable. my hair wasnt very soft, it was dry...definitely wouldnt repurchase.
This is OK. It left my really processed hair a lot softer and easier to manage, but it didn't really add shine. I'm left feeling a bit ambivalent - yeah it did the job OK, but for the price you can get really special stuff.
Nice fragrance though.
I bought this because I've been on the look out for nutrient replenishing shampoos and it's supposedly for highlighted, damaged, or chemically treated hair. My complaint about this shampoo is that it's supposed to "deliver mega-moisture" when nothing could be further from the truth, and not surprisingly, it doesn't "add super shine" either. I can't really say whether it preserves the color or not because the red dye in my hair has been locked in ever since I used Tresemme hot oil the other day. I don't think any shampoo would've been able to do that as porous as my hair was. There are redeeming qualities about this though. It does seem to put nutrients, described, in my hair since I've only used this along with the conditioner once so far and it's really thickened my hair. I like the new tropical scent. And the lather is wonderful. It's so creamy and takes hardly any effort for me to get my fingers in my hair to massage my scalp. I'm sure I would like this much more if my hair was still in it's oily flat state. 04/06/06 Update: I take back what I said about this not being moisturizing. I've found no moisturizing shampoo/conditioner was gonna penetrate my hair in the condition it was. I had to use a deep treatment and my hair is pretty much back to normal now. So now this is quite good at moisturizing, but not too much of a good thing. My hair looks fabulous now. It's so thick, full, soft, bouncy, and shiny. Just so much more than I expected out of this "Dumb Blonde" shampoo. Definite repurchase, but won't be for a LONG time since I need so little of it and I rotate.
