I wasn't impressed with the volumizing version of this shampoo, which left my hair shiny yet very dry. I decided to give this moisturizing variety a shot, and I'm really glad I did. Like the other version, the scent is fairly neutral, which I prefer. It leaves my hair super shiny and soft, without weighing it down at all. This is really important since I have fine oily hair, and it doesn't contribute to the problem. It's a touch pricier than other drugstore products, but it's often on sale here, so I can usually snag it at half price or thereabouts.

I would definitely recommend this for anyone with normal to oily hair, though I'm not sure if it's moisturizing enough for anyone with dry or damaged hair.

This is good shampoo! I like that the bottle dispenses from the bottom so it's easy to get out all of the product, the scent is nice but not overpowering, it cleanses well but is moisturizing, it does seem to deposit some color, and my hair is shinier when I use it. I wish it deposited more color to help cover my WHITE (not gray) hair, but I'll probably repurchase this. The price wasn't bad and it was easy to find in stores around me.

I really like this shampoo. I was raised on Suave and have never boughten anything else. My grandma gave me this a few weeks ago and I had no idea shampoos could be so different!!!! My hair is shiny and I have no need for conditioner!!!! I see absolutely no build-up, which is rare. I love it!!!

I like to experiment with shampoos, but I always have a bottle of Brilliant Brunette in the shower. I have thick (but fine textured) hair that gets greasy easily, and I find that Brilliant Brunette products do a good job at cleaning my hair without stripping out color or drying my hair out. I also love the almondy smell and the subtle highlights that I get after using BB products.

Im not sure exactly if this product is still being made. But it is wonderful. I have used john frieda brilliant brunette line for years. This shampoo cleaned my hair, added lots of shine to my black brown hair and enhanced the color. I wish it came in a bigger size since i have long thick hair.

One of the best shampoos I've used! My hair gets dry easily and this made my hair shiny and soft and moisturized (used matching conditioner too). Couple of weeks ago I was getting tired of the scent so I tried an herbal essences brand and my hair got ugly and dry after a week of use. Went back to this shampoo and my hair got nice and soft again! 4 stars instead of 5 because I'm getting kinda tired of the scent.... thinking about trying the Frizz Ease shampoo next. Anyways, this stuff is nice!

I used to like using this a lot paired with the conditioner when I was a brunette. Smelled great too!

My hair felt clean,shampoo rinsed well and really brought out the nice highlights in my medium brown hair.

100% repurchase!!

At first I really liked this product when I bought it. It brought out some lighter brown shades in my hair and seemed to do an okay job at cleaning it. However, after using it for a few weeks I realized that my scalp was very dry, itchy, and irritated near the nape of my neck. Since this was the only change in my routine, I think that this shampoo was the cause. Since then I've been using head and shoulders and other itch-calming shampoos in an effort to help my scalp heal and it has for the most part, but it is still more dry and itchy than it used to be. I might have had an allergic reaction to this product (I don't have any known allergies though), but I would recommend using this product with caution.
