This is literally the most basic and generic shampoo you can get - the ingredients do a good job of cleansing well, and don't cause any build-up. I'm not really sure what other reviewers are complaining about since this formula (sodium laureth sulfate + coco betaine) is literally in thousands of shampoos. They didn't add any moisturizers to this one, so perhaps people with dryer hair need something more hydrating. Shampoo is meant to clean your hair and scalp; if you find your hair dry after using a shampoo it's likely that your hair length (not hair near the scalp) is dry and needs conditioner. If you use a shampoo that leaves the length of your hair moisturized it may be too rich for your scalp. I really like this shampoo because it's bare-bones, cleans my oily hair thoroughly, and smells nice. Since most shampoo formulas are laughingly similar and cost about 50 cents to manufacture, I don't see myself paying for the same ingredients in a different bottle for $30.

This shampoo dried out my naturally oily, moisturized, hair to the point of no return. And seriously NOTHING dries my hair out. I had to use a deep condition for five minutes a day for a week to get my hair back to normal. I stopped using this because of the damage it caused me. I'm never going to get rid of all the babyhairs this shampoo gave me...
I didn't even get any volume from it! I had super flat hair!

if your considering this product, I would advise you to look elsewhere.

I bought this shampoo because I love dove body washes. I figured the shampoo had to be as good. I was so wrong! I used this shampoo for a week, and noticed my hair falling out like crazy. It also doesn't really clean that good, and my scalp will not stop itching.

My hair is wavy/curly, fine, but I have a lot of hair. This dried my hair out terribly, even though I paired with Nexxus Humectress AND a leave-in conditioner. I only used twice and am returning.

I have long brown hair, and I have a lot of it, but as it turns out my hair is considered "fine" (thanks a lot genetics!).

My hair is always weighed down, but since using this shampoo and conditioner it looks amazing!!!!!!
