I want to comment on the travel size of this - the shampoo was thick and barely ran out of the bottle. The BOTTLE was made of the hardest plastic on earth - no squeezin' HERE, baby. Have to take off the cap or break a finger or two. I don't remember when packaging ever bugged me as much as this did.
I used the shampoo up and can't say I cared for the job it did. I felt like it didn't cut thru the oily scalp I own.
Better stuff out there, I am sure.

I remember loving this when I was younger... But the smell isn't as great or powerful anymore. It also doesn't lather.. Which can bug some people. I know it's not stopping my hair of oils but I also can't stand the feeling it isn't really cleaning my hair. It does work well, and my hair feels fine with it. The price is great when compared to other shampoos they make. I think I will switch to bumble and bumble, though.

I'm surprised to read all of the negative reviews for this product and about how some women developed acne from the use of this. I find that odd as I have VERY acne prone skin and I haven't had any recurring spots around my scalp, face or back. I also cleanse properly after shampooing and conditioning to make sure I haven't missed any residue. I have baby fine hair and a very oily scalp so I have to shampoo daily. I was using regular 'ole green Prell before this which worked well but I began to develop some build up and needed to switch shampoos. I rotate between this and Prell every so often and I'm no longer suffering from any build up. The smell is very fresh and clean and I love the tingling sensation. The end result is wonderful and my scalp is left beautifully shiny and clean (which is always an issue with my oily hair). I pair this with Carol's Daughter Monoi Repairing Conditioner on my ends, and ONLY on my ends ensuring my scalp doesn't get any residue. Honestly, this product is wonderful if you use it correctly and you have the type of hair required for it. Ladies with thick, coarse, or dry hair need to stay away from this as it will only do further damage. It's a clarifying shampoo for naturally oily, fine hair. I use this product daily and I love it more and more!

I have very fine hair, but a lot of it. This shampoo has been my Holy Grail for giving it volume and body while maintaining a healthy shine. Love, love, love it!

Works well for my oily hair, and the scent is pleasantly reminiscent of spearmint gum. Don't get this in your eyes--it stings worse than any other shampoo I've tried.

I love Aveda, but this product isn't for me. This product is meant for people with really thin hair who wash their hair daily. I have thick hair and this shampoo dried my hair out completely. My hair has tons and tons of split ends, and has a lot of breakage in it. I was so excited to buy this and I used up almost the whole bottle, but this was definitely a waste of my money.
(: Hope this helped.

Well my hair clearly hasn't read the terrible reviews on MUA because it simply LOVES this shampoo!
I have baby fine naturally grey streaked hair which falls to just below my shoulders. I'm pretty lucky for someone with lots of greys and my hair is not at all wiry and dry though the longer ends do tend towards dryness now and again whilst the roots are edging towards greasiness by the end of the second day, so I really only need a simple lightweight shampoo which smells good, is gentle enough for daily use and makes my hair shine - this one delivers on all counts, I'll rebuy.

This made my roots feel so disgustingly oily, I have to wash or after 2 days. Not only that, it costs $40 for one bottle. Do not buy this product.. You can buy better and cheaper

DO. NOT. BUY!!!!!!!!!!!!! this stuff is absolutely, horribly, terribly AWFUL! before use, I had lush, shiny, healthy, long hair and beautiful, clear skin. after use? parched, dry hair, dandruff, and horrific bacne and acne all over my forehead :( it only took 2 weeks of use to wreak this havoc and I am *still* trying to get over the effects :( I am literally traumatized and will do anything to ensure no woman uses this poison junk; I wouldn't even wish it on my worst enemy! I am heartbroken trying to fix my back and face, now ridden with terrible acne. what a horrible product.

IF your hair is short, to shoulder length, not-color-treated, already in healthy condition but youre looking for that fresh, scent that wakes you up in the AM and you have moderately oily scalp and at the crown of your hair and you don't wash your hair daily then this is for you. So many people comment how drying, tangling it is, that's because you're using the wrong shampoo for your hair. The same goes with the matching conditioner, it's a rinse, just to detangle and the scent will be longer-lasting. The girl who helped me at Aveda is super nice, she is so knowledgable about the products. This shampoo will take out all the oil, give you lift and volume where you need it! Love this stuff.

I have a pretty oily scalp and this shampoo did not cut it for me. The shampoo smells great and feels great but my hair is pretty greasy by the second day--something that didn't occur with other shampoos. I will not be repurchasing.

My aunt got me the AVEDA rosemary mint shampoo and I used it when i got back from vacation and I loved the small so much cause it smells so fresh but over time as i started using it I could feel like build up in my hair like it wasn't clean. It felt so gross like it wouldn't get clean! I was using the same shampoo also and if you don't comb your hair in the shower then it's not as easy to get the tangles out. I'm honestly spoiled with my shampoo haha! Before the worst mistake of my life (Aveda) I was using Redken shampoo and conditner "so soft" which I still love and I'm going to buy it soon enough as soon as I'm finished reading other reviews. So i felt that Aveda left my hair tangled through out the day which really mad me mad and it felt greasy at the top and I noticed it kind of looked a little greasy also. I do have oily hair but if I wash it it's normally not looking oily so this shampoo and conditoner is not worth it's price AT ALL and I am never going to use it again I don't think I am ever going to buy any of there products again. I even noticed my scalp was getting dry. I went to the beach and figured oh I probably just got a sunburn on my scalp but I noticed as a few weeks went on my scalp started itching and I have dandruff but it's not super bad but it itches and it sucks cause i've never had dandruff, I'm royally pissed!! -_- NEVER BUY THIS PRODUCT!! Redken is the bomb and is so worth the $50-55price honestly!! btw my hair is fine, oily, & dirty blonde with natural high lights, NEVER DYED ONCE.

I went to an Aveda salon where the woman who cut my hair actually worked for Aveda at one point. I told her about the bad reviews here about this product, since I was surprised. She said the majority of the people who buy this are buying the wrong product. She said this shampoo + cond. (she called it a rinse) are for baby fine to normal hair that is frequently washed. Bascially for the person who washes and goes. It's not for dry hair, not for thick colored hair or course hair. I love this stuff personally. I have baby baby fine hair and a really sensitive scalp and this never irritates, plus I love the refreshing smell. I use a little of the Damage Remedy afterwards ( the new leave-in) and I get massive hair and I air-dry! Plus, overall this makes my hair just feel and look thicker.
If you love this but find it too drying, maybe try a thicker leave-in cream afterwards to help with moisture! Hope this helps :)
Oh, I do agree with the reviewer below about the 1L sizes - total bargain!

Crap. The only word I can think of that would describe this. Thankfully I didn't waste my money on this. Rather, I was away for a trip and this was the bathroom amenities that the hotel provided. I usually bring my own, but since it was only a few days I thought it wouldn't hurt. I was so wrong.
I got long, almost to the small of my back, normal hair. I used Joico's K-Pak the week before going. My straight mid-back length Asian hair was smoother and softer then usual. And bam, after one wash with this shampoo and matching conditioner, my hair was tangled getting out of the shower, and I would wake up to my hair looking like a bird's nest. I generally don't even brush my hair in the morning. It doesn't need it. Not with this shampoo, it was tangled in knots and my roots were gummy even after thorough washing and rinsing. It never felt cleaned, it was stripped of moisture and shine.
My bf who joined me for the trip has oily hair. He doesn't care about shampoo brands, he uses whatever is there, and sometimes he just uses water. He actually had an opinion for once about hair treatment. He hated it! His hair felt like it wasn't washed properly after this shampoo. It also felt gummy, and dirty and he got horrible, scalp flaking dandruff afterwards. Ew. We were both glad to go home after the 4 day trip and wash our hair properly with stuff that actually works.

This is a shampoo for oily hair; not dry or colour treated, as mine is. I love the smell and the tingly feeling on the scalp, but it dried out my hair. If you have oilier hair and use it, be careful not to get it in your eyes as will sting.

no no no! it's awful shampoo! especially talking into account the price! it's not worth it, it made my luxury hair look grossy and unshiny...never will buy Aveda shampoo!

I was pretty surprised when I read the other reviews mentioning how it causes scalp breakouts, reason being I used to have pretty oily scalp and this shampoo helps keeping it under control. I think the key to using this shampoo, or any shampoo in general, for people having oily scalp, is to clean your scalp extremely thoroughly every time. For me, I will wash my hair twice with shampoo every shower. After the second application, I will leave in the shampoo for around 1 min, then rinse it away. An indication of my scalp being completely clean is when it gets "squeaky" when you rub your fingers across our hair rubbing on your scalp. Sometimes I will get that sound after washing my hair for the first time, sometimes I can only feel the middle section downwards of my hair getting "squeakly clean", but not the roots. Then I wash my hair again. Until every part of your hair, from roots to ends, squeak! I guess your scalp is just like your face. Keeping it clean, oil-free is the first step to reduce breakouts. For price, it's actually reasonable if you buy the 1L size.

This stuff murdered my hair and made my scalp/forehead/neck break out. My roots were greasy and the rest of my hair was a dry frizzy mess. My scalp was sore, flaky and covered in pimples. I've never had newly washed hair look so gross. I looked and felt horrible for the week I used this.
I've never had a reaction to mint or rosemary. I have no idea why this made such a complete mess of my hair.
The smell is wonderful. Sometimes I still sniff the bottle and wish I could use it.

I'm on the fence with this one. I LOVE the smell and that's probably what keeps me coming back for more. It does take quite a bit to work up a lather, and I find the my hair gets slightly more oily in between washes when I use this. This would be a good daily shampoo if you can afford to use it that often. I might repurchase, but I'm not sure.

The shampoo is great. The conditioner is average. i also had the volumising moose which gives you a great bounce after the blow dry.
