Flex shampoo is a staple with a lot of motels/hotels because its so cheap. I've only used this when on vacation somewhere and I forgot to bring my own shampoo. It dries out my hair and the scent is horrible!

I hate to bring down the rating but I think I might have been allergic to one of its ingridients coz I used this shampoo for the first time, my hair went to an island where its never before and never will be there(Thank Goodness for that). The moment I took my hair out of the towel after using Flex, my hair was a total mess. It had got tangled to an extent that I couldnt think of detangling it with a comb. I dreaded it. Withing 15 min of shower, I again hustled back to the bathroom and shampooed again with a differnt shampoo. My hair got better to an extent. It took one week for me to bring my hair back to normal

you people will be surprized to hear, it worked exactly the same on my hair as sunsilk co-creation mustard oil shampoo. exactly the same!!!!! if sunsilk mustard oil shampoo suits your hair, this will do nothing new. its a little dilute in consistency than sunsilk, but they give more amount of shampoo for the same price so that equals them both. its not bad, but i guess my hopes were too high.

I love, love, love this shampoo! My favorite is the Ultra Clean one. It makes my hair full, soft, shiny and very clean. No build up & it does not seem to dry it out either. The smell is the best part, it reminds me of the 80s when I was a teenager & used to use this often. A huge bottle of this normally cost under $2, though this is getting harder & harder to find since it's been discontinued (yikes!). A couple of alternative's for those who don't like the scent of mainstream shampoos are Nature's Gate Herbal Shampoo, which has a spicy smell, or Aubrey Organics GPB Protein, which is also a balsam and protein shampoo.

Saw this at Big Lots for a $1.20 and had to purchase it. The scent is all about the 80's. Love the smell. I had to give it 5 lippies, even though it's not the best shampoo and it's really drying if you use it everyday, but I just L-O-V-E the scent, it brings me back. I use it as my once a week clarifying shampoo and it works fine for that.

I really love this smell, I would use it as a perfume, a body lotion a shower gel .
Of all the different versions I think I like the volumising one the best , which I think is the same as the original balsam and protein formula.
They have messed around renaming repackaging and relaunching this shampoo so many times no wonder they think it is a failing product .
After not seeing it in shops for almost 10 years ( though the occasional tacky littlemarket stall has it) I recently found a bottle in a Pound Shop , that gave me a clue that it was discontinued .
The packaging was totally different ( the smell is just as dreamy though ) and the writing appeared to be Hungarian.
I asked the man behind the counter and he said whenever he gets his stock it goes out in days and some people stockpile it .
Another classic is about to become extinct due to Revlon's foolish business plans. I have just joined the Facebook group " Bring back Flex shampoo " it might not make a difference but I will sleep easier at night knowing I tried.

I love this shampoo and I'm so sad to see it discontinued! I ordered several bottles through my local pharmacy a few years ago and would have ordered more had I known Revlon was going to stop making it.
I just ordered...well, a lot...on nutritionalsupplementproduct dot com, which was a lot cheaper than what I found on eBay. So if you want to stock up, that may be a good option.

This was the scent of my childhood. I wouldn't say this was the most moisturizing shampoo or conditioner but the balsam scent was wonderful. Just a helpful tip, in Asia both the Flex shampoo and conditioner are still being manufactured and are very common in drugstores like Watson's (China, Hong Kong). There are several varieties; the original balsam scented Flex and also a Ginger one. The prices are very cheap, come in large sizes and I've seen value packs. If you are in Asia or can get someone to pick some up, this would be a good bet. Hope this helps.

I LOVE the smell of the Flex products. I couldn't find them anymore at stores and read some people online suggesting that they were discontinued, so I wrote to Revlon. Here is the response that I got:
"Thank you for your recent comments from the Revlon website and your
interest in our products. Sometimes, because of fashion trends and limited consumer demand, it
becomes necessary to discontinue an otherwise excellent product.
Unfortunately, Flex is no longer being manufactured."
So stock up on Ebay girls, as that lovely balsam scent is vanishing forever. Very sad as it is such a gorgeous, spicy, creamy, scent, and very unique. :-(

Nothing beats this classic for truly cleansing the hair!
I like how it removes styling products and oil from my hair. It has the same effect as a clarifying shampoo. I try not to spend a lot of money on clarifying shampoo so this is priced perfect. I do use Flex conditioner to go along with the shampoo and it makes my hair soft and clean. For anyone who hasn't used this classic, there is a very fragrant strong scent. It is not for everyone! I would describe as a men's cologne. They say it is the Balsam that is an ingredient. It reminds me of Revlon Outrageous Shampoo (if anyone can find this anywhere please PM me!).
I love this shampoo. Classic oldie but goodie that stands the test of time. I don't know what I would do if they DC'd it.

Wow, the scent of this takes me back to junior high. Cleans and moisturizes and it still costs the same. I'm surprised they still make it.

I just ordered some of the shampoo and conditioner from drugstore.com I love the smell-reminds me of the 80's .

I'm so surprised at the people who hate the smell of Flex....that's the best thing about it! Its one of the few old fashioned, non-fruity smelling shampoos still made. Its a decent shampoo, very good quality for the price. Unfortunately, the conditioner sucks, and unless you use the conditioner, you lose the wonderful scent. I wish there were a few more shampoos with that kind of scent....these days Herbal Essences, Pantene, Garnier, all the major brands all have a similar strong, fruity smell. It would be nice to have some variety.
UPDATE: I just tried to buy some more Flex on Drugstore.com but no dice, and then I discover it has been discontinued! *Sigh* I think Flex was the last of the 80's shampoos. I am actually sad about this. Not only will I miss the incredible scent, but I just miss the fact that all of the old school products are now gone. No Tame Creme Rinse, no Vidal Sasson, and now no Flex. :(

Got it at a .99 cent store. It stank awful, but did an okay job. My Suave works alot better. So does the VO5. Not bad for a buck, but it doesn't do anything much but stink. A friend of mine used it on her curly hair and it was left frizzy and dry. Maybe good for the fine and limp haired girls. If you can get past the bad odor.

This product is not widely available in australian chemists or supermarkets, but when it is, it costs under $2. This is one of the unsung bargains of the hair world. I used this for years until I decided to go organic and bought a shampoo that cost 10 times as much per ml. What a waste of money. I like the way Flex cleans my hair without stripping it, and leaves it bouncy and shiny. Most of the time I don't bother using a conditioner afterwards because my hair feels good without it, but when I do use a conditioner, I use the Flex conditioner, also an unsung bargain. The smell is quite strong but wears off fairly quickly, and I like it so would be happy if it lasted longer. I will continue to repurchase this as long as I can find it.

I found this at the grocery store one day and was suprised they still made it. My dad always said that Flex was a good shampoo because it didn't dry out your hair, so I bought it. It was extremely cheap which is good. The smell is horrifying. Very bizarre 80's smell. I can't really describe it. Cleaned my hair nicely and didn't dry it out, but I won't be buying it again mainly because of the smell, and besides if I want cheap shampoo that actually smells good I'll buy Suave. Sorry Flex.
My mom smelled my hair after I washed it with Flex, and she said it smelled like puke. Hmm..
