This shampoo does what it's supposed to do. It cleans my hair without stripping it or drying my scalp. I shampoo my hair about 3 times a week and my hair is doing just fine. The product is very moisturizing - almost too moisturizing - so I do use a clarifying shampoo once a month or so just because my fine hair starts to get limp from buildup.
I was initially hesitant to drop $10 on a bottle of shampoo, but surprisingly, I'm STILL using the same bottle that I bought in September. Even though the initial investment is higher as compared to other shampoos, it's proven to be very economical. At this rate, I'll only be buying shampoo twice a year.

First, a bit of background. My hair is super dry due to a combination of genetics, coloring my hair, and developing hypothyroidism. It's also super fine and wavy/ loosely curly and is very thick- my hair dresser claims I have the hair of three people. My hair generally dislikes sulfates, and definitely doesn't do well with cones.
This is probably the best drugstore shampoo I've used.I was nervous about trying it due to the fact that my hair is baby fine and it is marketed towards women of color-I was afraid it would leave my hair weighed down. But this shampoo leaves my hair with amazing body- it accentuates my hairs natural texture without stripping it. It also makes it very shiny and not at all greasy.
It also has a nice texture to lather up with. It's an almost runny semi opaque cream- it kind of reminds me of the texture of dial soap. It doesn't suds all that much but cleans my scalp without it feeling stripped.
It does have a very strong scent. I can still smell this strongly in my hair well into the next day, and I'm the sort of person who usually cant smell shampoo in my hair after taking a shower. However, its a rather non offensive clean tropical smell.
The price point is fair- it seems to go for 10 dollars or so where I am from. Washing every other day, I get several months of use from it. In comparison a bottle of herbal essences or something similar would only last me a few weeks, so you actually get a much higher quality shampoo for the same price or cheaper when buying this.
The only really caveat I can think of with this shampoo is that the protein in it can leave my hair a bit crunchy after weeks of constant use. So rotating while using this is a must for me. Also, it's becoming more and more difficult for me to find this shampoo in the pump bottle in my area. But that's really just splitting hairs.
Simply put, this is the best drugstore sulfate and cone shampoo that I've used thus far.

I really wanted to love this shampoo. In the end, I just liked it. It does have a nice scent to it. However, I find that I can only use it from the ears down as a conditioner because as soon as it touches my scalp: instant clumpy buildup. If you want a shampoo that cleanses your hair apart from moisturizing, keep searching because this one might just be "too moisturizing".

I hesitated a while before buying this product. One, the price (if not professional, I don't like spending more than $7 each on my products, John Frieda Frizz Ease being the only exception) & two I thought it might be too heavy for my hair.
Pros: It lathers!, awesome ingredients, is a sulfate free shampoo, helps curl formation
Cons: The smell, depending on the day; it doesn't lather as much as I thought it would; makes my hair oily.
The first few times I used this, I liked it. It didn't impress me, honestly, but I did like it. I was pretty excited for going somewhat CG with this shampoo (I tried cowashing twice & just no) and wouldn't feel bad if I washed my hair more often than twice a week. But now it makes my hair oily and I feel like I have to wash it every day. I keep forgetting to shake it before using, but I don't think it makes a difference because I didn't shake it before. This also helps with curl formation, but my hair is pretty curly (3b, but it turns to 3c type curls with curl enhancing products), so I don't like how it makes it tight, springy curls.
Overall, I said that I would repurchase (and I'm going to finish the bottle), but I'm definitely going to try other products before returning to this one. I might even go back to a sulfate shampoo for a while :/ I think this product is just too heavy for me hair; it's in between fine (easily weighed down and buildup occurs easily, plus it's fine when it's straightened) and medium texture.
Ps. I forgot to add it kind of tangles my hair :/

Nice gentle shampoo without stripping hair. Small amount goes along way. Works well and I see this lasting for months.

I purchased this after I gave away my HG shampoo to my cousin (I was traveling overseas so I was trying to lighten my load, long story). When Walgreens had the Shea Moisture line on sale, I snapped this one up. Now compared to my HG Raw Shea Butter Restorative shampoo, this shampoo is pretty good. But I like the Raw Shea Butter Restorative shampoo more because it seems to detangle my hair and leaves it more moisturized. This shampoo merely cleanse my hair. Not saying that it is a bad shampoo but I definitely have my favorites. I will repurchase this again if my HG was out of stock.

I love this shampoo! It gives a good lather and it doesn't strip my hair. This is one of my staples, among many hair stuff~

This is a wonderful, gentle shampoo that will benefit those with dry or curly hair. I love the tropical fragrance. It almost borders on candy-like but is not overwhelming. The shampoo gives a nice creamy lather and does a decent job of cleansing my hair, though it doesn't feel as clean as I would like. My hair is left feeling soft and does not tangle after drying however. A bottle is $9.99, which is not too bad for the type of ingredients that are in this. Along with the matching conditioner, my hair seems to have a happy balance of moisture and my curls are not weighed down.

I've tried washing my hair with conditioner like so many curlies do, but that only left my scalp greasy and hair limp. I need a shampoo to feel clean, yet don't want to strip my hair of moisture.
A friend recommended this line to me, but held off from thinking it would be too heavy for me as she has thick curly hair and prefers products that add a bit of weight. One day at walgreens I took the time to read the ingredients and was sold.
This is a creamy shampoo and a quarter size dollop does everything I want - It cleanses my scalp, detangles, does not strip hair of moisture, has surprising amount of lather and rinses out easily. The scent is nice too.
Wonderful ingredient list with lots of organic goodies and the added benefit of being free of parabens, sulfates, and phthalates.
Easily accessible and great price point. Already have a back up bottle

I ordered this from Target online for $10 because I absolutely fell in love with the Shea Moisture body wash (smells like pina colada), so I looked forward to the shampoo smelling equally divine. But it smells different - there is a coconut scent but it smells more 'serious,' like real coconut w/o any of the sweet brightness of pina colada. So I don't enjoy using this shampoo the way I hoped - I'm really not attracted to the smell, something about it is a little plastic/waxy & off-putting, kind of suffocating.
Being organic & all natural, it surprised me that it lathers up immensely richly & densely - feels very moisturizing & cushioned as I wash my hair, & rinses out cleanly but not squeaky - hair still feels cushioned, like a deeply conditioning shampoo. I don't bother using conditioner after using this shampoo (I have short virgin hair now which doesn't require the TLC pampering my hair used to require when it was damaged w/repeated highlights). Although I get the sense as I'm rinsing that it'll weigh down my hair, it doesn't leave my hair heavy at all - just healthy feeling & perhaps a touch thickened.
Believe it or not, the body wash actually works beautifully as a face wash & hair shampoo (so I don't bother wasting it on my body) & a little bit goes a long way for great lather (I seriously only use a peasize dollop for my hair) though the lather isn't AS dense & thick as the shampoo, so I really enjoy using the body wash for my hair. It leaves my hair feeling clean & doesn't dry it out (I'm a big fan of all things coconut & coconut derivatives, which this product line is made of).
I've already bought a backup bottle of the body wash (which also costs $10 & I've found @ Target stores & Duane Reade drugstores), but the shampoo I sadly won't buy again: simply because of the disappointing scent. That's the only reason I'm giving it 3 lippies. If it smelled like the body wash I'd buy the shampoo by the caseload & give it 5 lippies.
I'll probably mix in some body wash into the shampoo when I use it just to make it a more pleasant experience fragrance-wise. The bottle openings are sealed when you buy them so there was no way of knowing that these 2 products which have the same type name but not the same scent. I just assumed the smells were identical. For my shampoo that's the difference btwn repurchase or not.

This is a very moisturizing shampoo. It smells wonderful and leaves my hair extremely soft and detangled. It's thick and creamy consistency is nice and provides a thick lather. Because it's more a conditioning shampoo than a cleansing shampoo, I find that I must clean my hair with a clarifying shampoo (Aubrey's Green Tea Shampoo) first, then I use this afterwards. I suppose I could add baking soda to clarify, but that is a troublesome step IMO.
Rinses out easily
Price (kinda' expensive when other products are calculated in)
Doesn't clean as well and requires a clarifying pre-wash.
I really like the shampoo and I love love love love love the smell. I intend on making this a regular staple. Since using these products, I'm no longer have issues with my hairline being fuzzy and hard to tame.
