i adore this shampoo and conditioner! really does make the hair skinny and smooth. LOVE IT!
This is the first product to actually help with my frizzies even on humid days. It did take a few times using it before I noticed the difference. The only problem is I have tons of other shampoos and I don't want to use anything else on my hair anymore!
Loving it! It actually cut my drying time. I also use the conditioner. No buildup. Yeah!
Wow, this product REALLY didn't work for my hair! My hair is coarse, thick, and has been thermally reconditioned. When I blow dry my hair, this stuff makes it limp and dull (instead of smooth and sleek) and when I let my hair air dry, it dries into matted looking, tangled mess. I don't know if it was too drying (makes sense since it dehydrates your hair strand) or what but I have literally never had such a bad experience with a shampoo before - my hair didn't even feel clean afterwards. The one good thing about this shampoo was that it smelled fabulous. Ugh!
The only good thing about this product is the packaging. I bought this because I am a hair care junkie. This product claims to reduce drying time: not at all. This product claims to give hair an overall flat look with no volume. It really didn't do a thing.
I will not buy this again and I wouldn't recommend it. I will stick to Matrix's sleek look products - they even smell better!
I bought this to try and tame the frizzball that is my hair, especially when the weather starts changing. Since I am a hairdresser, I get all hair products dirt cheap, so price point isn't a consideration.
I bought this special duo in a green bag with the Super Skinny conditioner. I love the skinny, sleek bottles and the bright green accents. The shampoo and conditioner smell AMAZING, which is by far their most redeeming quality. This shampoo claims to displace water in the hair shaft, therefore making the diameter of each strand thinner (ie smoother) until your next shampoo. It also claims to reduce drying time.
The shampoo is crystal clear (no moisturizing properties, bad for a bleach-head like me) and lathers well. The conditioner is super thick and creamy, and detangles well, but doesn't leave my hair as soft as others (Kenra Moisturizing conditioner, Catwalk Fashionista).
I honestly do not see any smoothing difference, or reduced drying time. My hair smells amazing, but I don't know if I will repurchase for any other reason. The smell might sway me, though. It's that good - like green apples and sugar. I have been using this duo for less than a week, perhaps it takes longer to start working. Who knows. continued >>
I am a hair care junkie, thanks for my sister being a hair stylist I get to try just about everything. After a while I got a little jadded about shampoos/conditoner- it has to be really good for me to re-buy and this lives up to it's promises. I have a strange combo hair ( if that makes sense ) It's color treated dry on the ends but a bit oily on top. If I don't wash my hair everyday I end up with a mess. The shampoo to me- smelt like fresh melons, lathered really good and didn't seem to wash out a lot of my color. It left my hair clean but moisterized. I did notice my hair dried slightly faster than normal- which is a good thing since I air dry my hair.
See my review of Super Skinny Conditioner for my hair type.
The Super Skinny Shampoo lathered surprisingly well for a Paul Mitchell Shampoo. It smells fruity but doesn't last. My hair almost felt sufficiently moisturized to go without conditioner but I didn't. My hair seemed straighter, shinier, healthier, and seemed to dry faster used in conjunction with the conditioner. I didn't notice any slimy feeling, just clean and tangle free. I'll definitely repurchase. Could be my HG. Update 6-27-04: see my comments under the SS conditioner
I just used this one time so far on my color treated hair. I straighten my hair with a blow dryer so I thought I would give this a try. It smells like apples, comes in a 10 ounce bottle. This made my hair feel slick and soft. It is supposed to reduce drying time, and the one time I used it I noticed a small difference--it did take a little less time. My hair straightened a lot easier using this shampoo. I also reviewed the conditioner. I got both in a promo buy shampoo and conditioner for $15.00 I like this product so far.**UPDATE** I can't use this product, it totally dried out my hair. It's a shame, because this really DOES cut down on dry time. :-(
