This shampoo was INCREDIBLY awful for me. Even though it says it's supposed to be moisturizing, it actually felt like it stripped my hair of all moisture and even after using a heavy duty conditioner, left it in bad shape. I could not use this shampoo without putting some argan oil in the ends of my hair after, or it would look like my hair was straw.

On top of the stripping, it always left me with waxy, nasty looking second day hair, meaning I had to wash EVERY basically I could wash every day and have gross, dry straw hair or I could try to hold off on washing for a day and have gross greasy hair. On top of all that, I paid 10 dollars for this. Ugh. I'd give this shampoo a pass. There are better sulfate free shampoos that ACTUALLY moisturize, and many of them are cheaper than this.

I recently ordered the black vanilla line because all the reviews I read highly recommended it. Although i love the smell, I don't believe this shampoo was moisturizing at all. It actually felt like it stripped my hair. So it's a no go for me I'll be using as a body wash since the smell is so yummy. And sticking with shea moisture & As I Am for my hair.

I didn't like this at first, but now that my bottle is almost empty, I realize that it's not such a bad shampoo after all. It smells nice, lathers good, and makes my hair feel clean with some body afterwards. I have fine, color-treated hair, and this shampoo does a good job cleaning my hair without stripping the color. The reason I didn't care for this shampoo initially was because of its viscosity. It reminded me of maple syrup both in color and thickness; and it felt weird working it up into a lather compared to other, creamier shampoos that I'm used to. But once I got used to it, I became a fan. This is good stuff. :)

I have color treated/Keratin treated hair. I tried this as a sample and it was great. I would have purchased this, but I tried other cheaper versions that I liked just as well (and some that I didn't). Smell is amazing but it's so expensive for a small bottle.

I love this gentle, sulfate-free shampoo. The vanilla scent is heavenly, and the moisturizing formula leaves my hair soft and full. I would definately buy this again.
