I really cannot say enough about this line of shampoos. I bought the shampoo and conditioner of this particular biotin one, and the Thin to Thick (apricot, I think), and really my hair's gone back to its natural, soft, shiny state that it was before I damaged it with all the bleaching, coloring, and heat & chemicals. My hair is SO soft, but not flat.
For this particular shampoo, I feel like it should be rinsed out longer than usual -I feel like it stays in if you do a quick rinse that you're used to with commercial shampoos. That's not a problem for me though! Love, love. Will def be sticking with Jason's.
I LOVE this biotin shampoo! One of the better organic/natural shampoos on the market, in my opinion. Many natural shampoos are simply not moisturizing enough for my hair. I have heavily highlighted hair that can be really dry and this shampoo/conditioner combo leaves my hair silky soft with no nasty residue/build-up. I get this for $6 at my local grocery store and the bottles are huge (can't remember if it is a 16 or 18 oz. bottle), so it's very economical as well! I do not have any issues with this shampoo lathering nicely. I get plenty of suds and my hair feels nice and clean, sans tangles and knots. It does have an herbal scent, but that's better to me any day than a cloying synthetic perfume. Since I had converted to primarily natural products many years ago, I have a lot of issues with synthetic fragrances. The bottle I purchased is the 'New and Improved' version, so I cannot vouch for the older version.
I bought this out of sheer desperation because my regular shampoo was out of stock, and I honestly regret doing so. The packaging is nice, and I'm not crazy about the scent, but it's not bad; it's very herbal. I've used Jason Natural products in the past and have really liked them all, but so far I am not impressed with this. I have fine, very curly hair and after shampooing and conditioning (I use Jason daily fragrance free conditioner), and letting it air dry like usual, my hair felt weighed down, almost greasy; like I had never washed it to begin with. On the bottle it said "new and improved", so maybe the formula was better before they made the change? I'm not sure since this is my first time using this product. I guess I'll use the rest of the bottle since it wasn't cheap ($10 at my local Whole Foods) and maybe see if using less will help the issues I'm having, but I don't think I will be buying this product again.
It's refreshing and makes the hair really soft and bright but for me, it makes me ich my scalp a little.

This is a great shampoo. It smells nice and cleans hair very well. My hair feels softer after using this, naturally soft, not silicone soft. This is not really supposed to lather, so don't worry when it doesn't -- it's still cleaning your hair. Overall a really nice natural shampoo, I will definitely repurchase and try all the other kinds as well.
I'm in love with most of Jason's products. I've tried all but 2 or 3 types of their shampoos and conditioners and I like each one equally. Does this shampoo/condtioner actually promote more hair growth? I don't know, I haven't seen a real difference in that, but it does leave my hair clean, soft, smooth, yet bouncy and full of body. I like that the Jason smells fade quick, and I also like that they have cones in them. I have a few cone free shampoo/conditioners, but i really feel like having a cone in it helps tame hair better. And since cones aren't toxic and rarely comedogenic, i don't mind that it's synthetic.
For those of you trying sulfate free shampoos for the first time, please take my advice and stick with it if you feel like your hair is acting funky for the first week or two. I switched almost three months ago and my hair is so much better off now. But, I did experience some issues when I first transitioned, I mean I had been pouring sulfates on my head for over 20 years, so I just gave my hair some time to adjust and am extremely happy with the results now.
I have been using Jason Biotin shampoo & conditioner for several years now - I can't recommend it strongly enough! I love it. I am generally a 'low maintenance' type - using no other hair products (styling stuff etc...) this wonderful product leaves my hair shiny and strong - with volume & swing.
I LOVE THIS SHAMPOO
Last year, a was loosing hair clumps at a time and my fair was feeling very thin and sparse. I had probably lost 1/3 of my volume over the course of 4 months. I researched ways to help and found that biotin was great for hair health. On top of taking a biotin vitamin supplement, I started using this shampoo. Fast forward about a year later, and my hair is now thick like it used to be. I have stopped the vitamin supplements but continue to use this shampoo.
When I first started using this I my hair kept coming out greasy after showering, and since there aren't sulfates it wasnt creating a sudsy lather like I was used to. I found that if I had just read the bottle I would have avoided this. The bottle recommends that you do a light shampooing at first and then follow it up with a second shampooing. Once I started doing this method, my hair felt squeaky clean!
The smell is nice and refreshing, I find it helps wake me up in the morning :)
For about three years I wore my hair up in an elastic band every day. You can imagine what that did to my hair. It was broken, dry, brittle and horrible looking. I have used natural hair products for some time now and though my hair looked awful I didn't want to use something unhealthy or non-biodegradable. So, I've been trying different brands and products for years (even tried no poo!), but now I am done.
I LOVE this shampoo. I switched to this shampoo from Yes to Carrots and after a month I started to get compliments from family members on how shiny and healthy my hair looked. It has also made my hair super soft and smooth.
I recently went on a trip for a week and used whatever shampoo was around. Boy was I glad to get back to my Biotin shampoo! This will go everywhere with me from now on.
I can't wait to see what happens when I get the conditioner too!
I also removed one lippy for smell. It's stinky and I can taste it in my mouth when it's on my head (I know, weird, right!?) and I hate that, but the product is so great it's worth it.
Follow the directions on the bottle. I get great lather doing so.
I have to say, I really like this shampoo. I have read that a lot of people complained about lather and soap, but you have to realize that this is a sulfate free shampoo, meaning you aren't going to get those ultra suds like you would from other brands.
I can get it right in my grocery store and its one of the few sulfate free shampoos I can get in my area. Not a terrible price at $7.99
I have naturally curly, thick hair which gets brittle with harsh shampoos. This shampoo has left my hair very soft and bouncy.
On a side note, my boyfriend (and avid suave user) recently developed a severely itchy scalp. It looked as if he had a red rash on his head. I purchased this shampoo for him because of the marigold (natural itch reliever) and within 2 days his scalp was back to normal. It has even helped his mild dandruff.
I am very happy with this shampoo. I have also tried their tea tree shampoo, but I prefer this one.
