LOVE this shampoo and the matching conditioner. I started by using the Biotin stuff, but I can't stand the smell. So now I switch between the Aloe Vera conditioner and the Biotin conditioner. But I am sticking with the Aloe Vera shampoo. I brought this along when I was on Tybee island for 2 weeks, and it worked out great. Tybee has hard water, and this shampoo and conditioner didn't make my hair feel gross and heavy. My husband and I also love the scent - it is very neutral and not at all too flowery for him.

I'd had no luck with 'natural' shampoos and conditioners -- the shampoos have been too harsh and the conditioners have been too greasy -- but this works out wonderfully! Wondering now why it took so long for me to figure out that what my face and body love will be great for my scalp and hair, too...
Jason brand has been reliable for me thus far (touch-wood). I can always find this on sale for 6 dollars or less, and it's so concentrated that it lasts a really long time. I lose little to no hair (a huge issue for me), the scent isn't flowery, and my hair feels lovely. Wonderful case of keep-it-simple-stupid.
I only need 1 wash, and I massage my scalp with aloe vera if I feel like it needs it. If I need extra hydration, I spray with water and a bit of oil, and that's it.

I've been using this shampoo for years and think it's great for my long, fine, wavy, frizz prone hair. It makes it soft and manageable and bouncy. You do need to do a quick shampoo/rinse before the real shampoo, as the directions say. Aloe vera is a wonderful ingredient for smoothing hair. I've tried expensive shampoos but always come back to this funky bottled brand.

I'm really on the fence with this product. I have thick, wavy/coarse hair with an oily/sensitive scalp, so I try to stay away from sulfate shampoos. This one seemed like a winner: natural ingredients, no sulfates, made with aloe vera, etc. I was a bit put off by the price, but truthfully it's so thick that I've had it a few months now and have yet to replace the bottle. What I've found is that after using it everyday for a long period of time, my hair is getting increasingly dry and the cleaning ability of this shampoo is mediocre at best. I rarely blow-dry my hair, however after going to my stylist for a haircut after using this for a long time, I had to chop off a few inches due to the damage in my hair. I can only blame this product as I do VERY little styling to my hair (it's a bit pointless for me really). Overall, not a horrible product, but not great either. Certainly not worth the amount they are charging for it in stores.

EDIT: I have now purchased a full size of this product to try it some more. I really love how soft it makes my hair look and feel. I cannot stop touching my hair. But I MUST use a SLS/SLES-shampo to clean the silicone out of my hair more often than once a week. I changed the rating from 2 to 4. If it did not contain silicone, I would have given it 5.
I bought travel sizes of the Jason Aloe Vera 84% Shampoo and Conditioner. I was so proud of myself buying natural hair products (and shampoo without SLS and SLES!). The ingredient list was hidden behind a instructions label, so I checked it some days later before buying full sizes. I could not believe that natural products like that, could make my hair so shiny and nice! I was very satisfied! Until I found silicones in the ingredients lists!! WTF?? Do I need a SLS/SLES-shampoo to clean out leavings from my "natural" organic hairproducts?? I would probably have noticed the build-ups if I had continued using them, thinking I would not need SLS/SLES-shampoo!
I have now ordered shampoo and conditioner from Weleda. With no SLS/SLES, silikones or parabens! (Aloe Vera 84% do not have parabens in them, but some of the other Jason hair products (that I bought for my husband) have them!)
I shall never ever again buy ANY cosmetics without checking the ingredients first!

Jason Natural Cosmetics make some of the more affordable sulfate-free shampoos on the market, and the Aloe Vera shampoo is an excellent selection. Cleans very well. The scent is just okay, kind of "soapy", but nice enough. This product does a good job of preserving my colored hair.
The product is very thick and concentrated. I would recommend adding a little water in your hand with the shampoo before adding to your hair. Or add a little water to the shampoo bottle itself.
A good recommendation for colored hair.

My thick hair tends to dry out easily and poof out into a triangle at the slightest cause, and this shampoo solved both of those problems.
Something about aloe vera keeps my hair smooth and poof-free - I'll even comb pure aloe vera gel through it when it's wet sometimes. I love the way my hair looks and feels after this shampoo: smooth, tame, and healthy. The only problem is that I can never skip a day of washing my hair (to have a bath instead, shave, etc) because it will get very oily. That's the only thing that pushed this review from 5 to 4 stars.
It's so much gentler than mainstream shampoos, so two precautions are necessary: 1) always shampoo twice, and 2) use the accompanying conditioner. It works differently than most shampoos, and takes a bit more care, but I love the result.

I've been using this for about 8 months (rotating with Giovanni) and really like it.
Given that the primary ingredient is aloe vera gel, I was not put off by the texture (I would have been bothered if it didn't feel like it does.) Also, I wasn't expecting it to lather, so that was fine.
It leaves my hair feeling clean, but not stripped. It also has an unobtrusive scent and leaves my hair fresh and manageable. It pairs well with any of my conditioners. Will definitely continue to use!

This contains 84% aloe vera and definitely does not function well as a shampoo. I don't use any hair products and after using this, my hair felt icky and when it dried, it looked lifeless, not fresh looking at all. I think it is way too mild to be a shampoo. It has a gel-like texture and creates very little lather.
EDIT: It works fabulously as a brush cleaner! It melts all the colour/powder off in seconds.

This was a little too thick for my liking. It's not a daily shampoo, but rather something to use if I notice my hair feeling dry or lifeless. Otherwise, it does a poor job at cleaning or clarifying hair. My hair felt somewhat gunky some days after using this product.

I have shortish dryish hair, that's fine but thick, and gets fussy with stuff that's too greasy or not greasy enough. Never coloured or otherwise treated. Scalp can be dry and is easily irritated. Probably therefore vaguely "normal." I was looking for a replacement for Aveda, which is exorbitantly expensive in Ireland. Alas, long-term use of Aveda hair products leaves one with an addiction to hair products that smell nice, and a distaste for those that smell otherwise (i.e. most drugstore staples). I used this with the matching conditioner. So far, it works well. One does need to do a first light wash, with just a little shampoo, and not expect any lather. Follow with a second shot, and leave for a short time (say, while cleaning other parts of self). Then the conditioner. After being left to dry naturally, the result is clean hair, smelling pleasant, that is smooth, tangle-free, shiny, and even has some bounce.
UPDATE: I had noticed that the lower lathering meant I was rubbing my hair a lot more when shampooing, and a lot more hair than usual was ending up down the drain. This much breakage is obviously not a good thing, and often accompanied by further roughing-up, leading to split ends. So switched to more moisturising and smoothing shampoos, meaning the hair is less tangled when you rub shampoo around in it, and there is less hair breakage. There is certainly next to no moultage, a very marked difference. Using Aveda Shampure; also used L'Occitane Angelica; love to the both of them.

I'm surprised this 'poo got such poor ratings. I kinda like it. My hair is shiny and manageable (even when I go to bed with it sopping wet and wake up with a mass of wayward curls the curls aren't frizzy and look good). So the end result is great. The actual use of the shampoo is where I think people are getting turned off. It has a fresh scent and lathers really well but does leave your hair feeling kinda like straw (similar to a strong clarifying shamoo). After using my own conditioner, the feeling goes away and my hair feels good and looks good.
As for the people compaining about SLS (and the SMS in this 'poo, which Jason states is "natural", although I don't know what that means) - the link between SLS and cancer has been debunked. You'd be better off avoiding parabens and petrolium-based products (which are everywhere).
UPDATE: I'm giving it another lippe! This stuff has really grown on me. I love it! When I got scorched by the West Texas sun last weekend, I used this as a body wash for my poor cooked skin - it worked great!
Now, I don't even notice the weird feeling that I originally reported. I'm gonna buy the matching conditioner next.

I love all JASON'S shampoos, truly better than any shampoo line anywhere. The only thing is I have a hard time finding a bottle, it's very popular in the health food stores. My fav is the Kelp and Jojoba but when I was faced with taking this Aloe Vera shampoo I gave it a try. Who would have thought it would also be a fav but after my 1st bottle I can no longer find it. Having bleached my hair since high school this line of shampoo is the only brand that has kept it healthy looking and still able to grow it really long. I get so many compliments on my hair.
Age: 25-29 Skin: Combination Hair: Brown Eyes: Green
well, Jason did not keep promises, because it contains Sodium Myreth sulfate, which is another a bit milder version of Sodium laureth sulfate!!!!!!
as far as i know the only two shampoos in Jason's line which are free from it(and really great too) are jason's EFA shampoo and Jason's jojoba shampoo( truly wonderful shampo!!!!!!)

This was the first J/A/S/O/N shampoo that I purchased and it almost turned me off all the hair care products made by this company.
I got tricked into buying it by the 84% aloe in it. Well, it did not wash my hair well, after it dried it looked really dry, stressed, horribly greasy.
I thought that it was just a first bad reaction to a new shampoo but even after 2 weeks my hair was still a mess so I give up on this one.
I will not buy this shampoo again; I do like other shampoos from this line though.
