I received a generous sample of this which I got 4 uses out of. Even though I have black hair, this shampoo immediately brought out the brown tones! Initially, I loved this shampoo. I was surprised that a shampoo could do that without a lightening agent like hydrogen peroxide or lemon juice (I assume it does not contain these ingredients). After one use, I even entertained the thought that this could be my HG!

However it irritated my sensitive scalp and I developed scalp acne, which is common for me when I use most drugstore shampoos. This one dried out my hair too much. Back to my Selsun Blue!

This product will definetly not help your hair if you use it for a long period of time. The bottom line is, this shampoo is damaging. It may be ok in the beginning, but will damage your hair and scalp over time.

For a drugstore shampoo, it's not dirt cheap either (in Europe at least).

This shampoo is amazing on my hair. It leaves it soft and incredibly shiny and it smells nice too. Definately buying again.

At first it was love. clean beachy scent, smooth soft hair and general feeling of healthy hair. Then after 2 mos use, my scalp became irritated, dry, flaky and worse - extremely itchy! I began switching off of the shampoo and realized it was just that, my shampoo. Anytime my scalp got better I'd get brave and try to switch back to this shampoo with no luck. It literally burned my scalp just to wash my hair with this
shampoo. The conditioner is great though! No trouble there. Strange for a moisturizing shampoo! Won't buy again, wouldn't recommend!

I used this throughout high school and loved it! It smells really nice and enhanced the color of my hair. It's a bit expensive for a drugstore shampoo in my opinion, though.

This shampoo left my (thick, coarse) hair frizzy and unmanageable, while also causing my entire scalp to break out. On the plus side, it smells good and left my hair quite soft, so I guess it wasn't a total bust. Definitely wouldn't buy again.

This shampoo is awesome. I color my hair different shades of brunette every now and then and always notice how the color falls flat or fades but this gives your hair that staying power and makes your color pop. It smells nice, not too over powering but kinda a downside for me cause I love my hair to smell like flowers and fruits a la herbal essence but what can we do. It does add shine for me and its not too harsh on my over processed hair. I bought like 5 bottles when they were on special cause the price is a little ridiculous.

Just average. It didn't seem to damage my hair, but for a moisturizing combo (also using the conditioner), it didn't feel extra moisturized. I didn't notice any big boost in shine or tone, either, so this is really a more expensive drugstore shampoo that isn't really worth the extra few bucks in my opinion. It smells nice, gets my hair clean enough, but I'll move on when I'm finished.

This smells so good and it lingers in my hair for a long time. It does give great shine, though I wouldn't use it everyday. It does clean decently, but I worry about build-up from this over time. I also know that this doesn't deposit any color, but this does enhance the brown color already in my hair and makes it appear more monotone in color. My hair is also not as frizzy which is a plus. I would buy again.
