I have a weird scalp. Dry at the base of my neck area and oily at the top. This shampoo/conditioner is the only conditioning product I can use without making my hair too oily. Also detangles! Smells wonderful and keeps my hair cleaner for much longer than expensive shampoos I've used (don't waste your money on John Freida...)!
I mostly use this as a bubble bath for myself and my kids-- it smells so springtime-fresh. Four lippies just for the great and very distinctive scent that takes me back to the '80s, and for this being a pretty nice bubble bath/shower gel that doesn't dry skin. As for my hair, this is about average-- no more or less drying than regular shampoos without added conditioner. I only shampoo every 2 weeks anyway (I condition and rinse daily) so I'm not too picky about my shampoo. If you're a daily shampooer with dry hair, Pert contains lots of ammonium sulfates and likely will dry out your hair despite the silicone (dimethicone) they throw into the mix so they can claim it "conditions." When I was shampooing more often, I stuck with sulfate-free salon brands.
Well, like so many products, I have mixed emotions about it. I do like the fragrance but I miss the older versions, like Happy Medium and So Fine. There was also a rosemary-scented one called Thick n Full that smelled intoxicating. They were all pearly white, while now Pert went green, which doesn't bug me, but I think the formula got heavier. They say two-in-ones don't clean as well as separates but I might try this one more time, despite not feeling as clean before. This might be good for girls with unruly hair. Mine tends to be dry in winter. The consistency is semi-thick, pearlescent and seems to run through hair, maybe a bit on the slimy side. I know it cleans but it doesn't clarify. Scalp feels alright but you can definitely tell your hair is coated. It claims not to build up. Maybe I have to use it long enough to get used to the sensation. After my hair dried last time, it wasn't flat, just not the same as what I'm so used to: nonconditioning cleansers. Like I said, though, the fragrance is nice-for guys n girls both- but I can't say it's the absolute best cleanser. Not the worst either. The new volume shampoo presumably has the lightest conditioner, so if I decide to try again, I will likely try that one. I still need a separate conditioner though. Many reviewers have also mentioned needing extra, despite the claims of ideal conditioning when used alone. This is hit or miss, depending what you're used to with shampoo. :) Still wish they'd bring back the old ones. *note: I also miss the old-about six years ago-White Rain for volume shampoo. Another good formula they changed for something inferior.
I'm pretty sure the medium one was the one in my mom's shower. I can't check because she lives out of state. But anyways, awesome stuff!! Smells great. Would totally purchase for my own shower. =)
Brings me back to memories at the beach because of the smell. Yummy! Anyways, it does seem to condition, being a 2 in 1, but not moisturizing enough for my hair. I bring it on trips, but thats really all I use it for, but I'd still use it because of the smell.
I remember using this as a kid in the 90's but I HATED it then because it was green. now days its a huge time saver and pick me up in the mornings. the scent is really clean and it takes me back to childhood carefree days. I get great hair all the time from this (for reference I have straight asian hair). *** however after a week or two after using it, there is some product build up so I have to use some apple cider vinegar to clear it up. i'm not taking a lippie off bc despite that its still the best shampoo everrr
Not a lot of people have heard about Pert haircare products, but that's so unfortunate. I love this 2-in-1 Happy Medium Shampoo-it makes my frizzy and dry hair so soft and moisturized, but never leaving it greasy. The shampoo is definitely gentle enough for daily usage and it saves you time because the conditioner is already added in. As for the price, I got two large bottles in a twin pack for less than $20-what a great deal! Mine came with an extra pump, in case you like to pump out the product instead of squeezing it out the bottle, which I find very useful. I would definitely recommend this to everyone and I would totally buy this again :)
I love the smell of this shampoo, and the convenience... But I just found after a while it seemed to make my scalp itchy! I dont know why, but i know it was this because I had used it for probably 2 to 3 weeks staright at that time. I will repurchase this only because my husband likes it. He uses it everyday with no problems. So maybe Im just a lil odd lol. So it gets a 3 because he loves it, but I cant use it. Its just good for maybe a camping trip or something for me.
I was really hoping to like this, but unfortunately, it didn't detangle enough and made my scalp itch like crazy. The fresh, clean scent was fabulous, though. Unfortunately, the cons outweigh the pros, so I won't be buying this again. =(
I love pert plus! I have long, fine hair that tends to go flat/get oily. Pert de-tangles and helps cut static without weighing my hair down. I have the bottle with mint in it right now. I like it a lot. I had Aveda mint & rosemary previously... and I prefer Pert!
