I couldn't believe the bargain on this shampoo. My husband used to use it, and I used to think, well, he's a guy and has short hair and doesn't want to spend lots of money, but it wouldn't work for me. Not so! I recently bought some because I noticed he was running out of his Suave shampoo and conditioner, and then I tried the Alberto myself for the first time in years. I love it! I know, it's got SLS... but it smells a lot like the shampoo I used to use as a teen. And it does a very nice job of cleansing without stripping! I don't know how it would be if I used it every day - and I have to use up my expensive SLS-free shampoo so I'll probably only use the Vo5 occasionally.Question: Has anyone else noticed that it's a little more watery than it used to be years ago??

$.69 and it's probably one of the best shampoos I've ever used. My hair feels light and clean without feeling too dry/stripped of oils. It's SO soft! I bought the Passion Fruit Smoothie one and even after I applied heat protector and dried/straightened my hair, I am still getting wafts of the incredible scent (I also used the matching conditioner...left it on for 5 minutes and rinsed. A very nice, light conditioner!). My hair feels and smells amazing and will be repurchasing and trying other scents, too.

Have loved this for years. Not an amazingly smelling shampoo but for 90 cents I won't complain! It effectively cleans my hair and it has body and bounce after. <3 this cheapy

I need a volumizing shampoo for my oily-at-the-roots, dry-at-the-ends, thick, coarse, shoulder length hair, and this was so-so. I wash my hair every other hair...this does provide minimal volume by it also seems to dry out my hair at the ends while making it sticky and a little greasy at the roots/in my bangs. (To be fair, I use a Suave strengthening shampoo mixed with this, and then diluted Suave Clarifying shampoo as well. When I use the strengthening shampoo alone, followed by the clarifying shampoo, I don't have the same squeakiness in my hair.) EDIT: When I use this by itself, it's...ugh. When I use this, without the strengthening shampoo, it still seems to make my bangs greasy. It might just be me--I have dry ends and oily roots after a day or so, but this was just "meh" to me. I'll use it up, but I doubt I'll repurchase.I've used this without the clarifying shampoo as a follow-up and this still made my hair squeaky clean and harder to comb. This is cheap, it isn't awful if you condition your hair and wash regularly, but there are probably better volumizing shampoos out there.

A dirt cheap shampoo that actually does what it says! Smells wonderful to me and leaves my hair clean, and full of body! Only costs me 84 cents! I love the conditioner too! Will always repurchase. Sometimes we get so caught up in the hype of really expensive hair products and then for some reason decide to go back to basics, only to find we've been wasting money all this time on products that are way too expensive and may or may not work. Simplify!

Pros:1. DIRT cheap2. Boosts volume 3. Volumizing shampoos tend to dry hair out, but this one doesn't do it as badly as other I have triedCons:1. Smell is a bit strange, however, it doesn't linger so I'm ok with that.Great quality at an incredible price. I'm sticking with this one for the forseeable future.

Positives - cleans hair well, gives hair some volume, great price.Negatives - I find it makes my roots oilier than normal (compared to other shampoos) by the second day and I REALLY need to wash it by then, which is not normal for me. It gives hair volume but at the expense of drying out the ends, and my hair became really static-ky (sp??). Would not repurchase.

I got this for 77 cents, I was not even willing to pay the usual 99 cents because I was so skeptical. This makes your hair so full, I got a compliment as soon as I stepped into work. I don't like the orange color and you need a moisturizing conditioner afterwards but otherwise it is fantastic.

2a/m/i hair, henndigoed black. Waist length.I like to use this in a rotation, because if I use it every wash, it can be be drying, like a clarifiying shampoo, and irritate my sensitive scalp (and bleed my indigo). The smell is almost herbally. It doesn't linger. I need just a little bit because this junk lathers like its going out of style! One bottle lasts me about 2 months when used in rotation. Rite Aid has sales on this a lot for as low as .69 cents a bottle. Even at normal price, I spend .50 a month on shampoo. Not bad at all!!!

I live in Toronto, Canada and have typical Asian (Chinese) hair. I've had not a lot of success in finding the right shampoo to keep my hair moisturized but not heavy and greasy by the end of the day. In Toronto the product is known as "Alberto VO5 Volume Boost Shampoo". I'm genuinely pleased with how manageable and smooth my hair is since I've been using it almost daily! I can't say that it added much volume, but for such a inexpensive (about $5.50 CDN) and excellent product, I will definitely repurchase. I'm currently not using it with the matching conditioner, but may consider doing so now.
Are you sure this product is discontinued?
