smells great, rich lather, very 'thick'. makes my hair really soft, but i don't feel that it cleans tooo well, but i attribute that to the lack of harsh sulfates. my hair feels healthy and i don't even need to use conditioner. smells great too!
this shampoo made my scalp form these horrrible bumps! i think they're pimples, but they feel more like really bad ulcers! also it's rare that i get dandruff, but after using this shampoo for a week, i have major flakes. NO-NO IN MY BOOK. my brother got the same results from this shampoo. oh, and i figured out that my hair feels 'healthy' when using this shampoo, because it basically doesn't clean. it just kinda rinses away itself and nothing else. useless product. going straight to the trashbin.
This is the best drugstore shampoo I have ever used. I actually like the fragrance and find that it delivers the right amount of cleansing for my fine, normal hair - doesn't dry it out but does get it clean, without stripping my color. Produces more lather than Aveda.
I bought this because it's sulphate-free and that really appealed to me. But I won't buy it again!
It's higher priced than some other natural sulphate-free brands I've used before (but had to stop using due to allergic reaction to some of the natural oils) and I don't like the tube it comes in. It's pretty small for the price and you have to squeeze really hard to get anything out of it.
But the worst part is the scent - it smells like men's deoderant, and that's all I can smell for at least 1/2 the day, even when I flip my head upside down and rinse that way in the shower so that the residue doesn't get all over me. I don't know if others can smell it, but I can't stand it.
Some people have complained about frizziness, but I have supershort hair, so I don't notice that. I haven't used it long enough to see if it really is anti-fade on my really red streaks, and I won't bother, either.
The price is fine for what you get, however, it isn't what I hoped it would be. It does control frizz and smooth my hair down but doesn't protect my color. I saw the difference in just one use so I was disappointed and will probably go back to Aveda shampoos after dumping this one.
Smell is comparable to Aveda products - very earthy. A little strong but I love Aveda scents. However, it performs horribly. I have never had such dry, dull looking hair. Terribly difficult to squeeze out of the tubes, especially when you're hands are already wet. Very disappointed.
This product is good!! I have very thick hair that gets frizzy. This helps with the frizz and makes it look straight (it is not a miracle product for this though). The reason why I purchased it was that it won an award in allure magazine for its anti color fading. It works! I dyed my hair about 2-3 weeks ago and the color looks great. I will continue to use this and will definitely repurchase!
I have had this shampoo a good five months before I reviewed it. Honestly, it makes my hair feel SO dry and I don't even have damaged hair. I have a bit past shoulder length hair that is fine yet I have a lot of it. After using this in the shower, it makes my hair a tangled hot mess. It takes a ton of conditioner just to wash it out! It also left a ton of build up in my hair, which is not great for someone who already has fine hair. I love the idea of using a sulfate-free shampoo but will not be repurchasing this again.
I'm happy to report that this is a great shampoo. I have found that the Everpure and Everstrong shampoos are great at making hair strong and healthy. I have thin, long hair and a squeeze of this stuff lathers into all of my hair nicely. I can't say that this actually improves my hair color. Odd thing is Everstrong (bodify) seemed to do that better than this one. This stuff doesn't seem to weigh my hair down or leave residue behind. Just strong, volumized and soft hair over here!
I got the set (the conditioner and shampoo) as an Easter present. It was given to me because I color my hair every 6-8 weeks and it promises to help maintain your dye job without stripping it of color or oils. It's also sulfate free so it's supposed to have more natural qualities and ingredients to it. At first I was very skeptical to try this shampoo because I was told that only salon brands would protect colored hair and not drug store products but I gave it a go and tried it out. Here's what I have to conclude about it:
*It kept my hair feeling smooth, shiny, and not disheveled and knotty
*With many shampoos, I usually lose a bit of hair and it ends up sitting in my shower drain but with this one... no hair loss! None at all no matter what I do.
*It's a light-weight formula not so heavy that it leaves a residue
*The color stays intact and doesn't fade as far as I know of after using this product
*My hair is a little flyaway after using this product
*I don't know if it's giving me enough moisture
Would I buy it again? Probably not. It's not a bad shampoo by any means but it wasn't anything that made a big difference in my hair except for not losing any hair after washing. There are so many other shampoos to try that I don't want to sell myself short on one that I'm only so-so about. This one isn't bad though if you're trying to keep up your hair color.
Very hard to squeeze out of the tube and absolutely no lather, which I couldn't get used to. Also, felt like it was very hard to rinse out of my hair. But the worst part was the frizz: extreme frizz the length of the hair shaft from root to tip. I've never had frizz like that before and I got it every time I used this shampoo. I think this shampoo actually damaged my hair.
