I never-ever repurchase hair products - especially shampoo! Before i found this my opinion on shampoos was simple - anything goes since i always follow the wash with a good conditioner! Honestly after spending so much money on salon products with very little difference in efficiency and feel, I figured i might as well use drugstore brands and save my money for HE conditioners/hair masks. Then one day i walked in to Shoppers Drug Mart and found this boring looking bottle in the clearance section. I recognized the brand from back home (i am originally from Europe) and a wave of nostalgia swept over me and before i knew it i was at the register :) I came home and that night in the shower my love affair with this "boring oat" formula was born. Finally i saw and felt the difference the right shampoo can make! Its insanely gentle, no fragrance, lathers up well and tames my hair almost immidietly :) Another thing i LOVE about the brand is that under the "directions" it actually states "one wash is enough" - every other bottle says "rinse and repeat"! What can i say, i really appreciate that kind of messaging lol
So the moral of the story is that there are shampoos out there that make a difference and they dont have to have a huge "logo" or celebrity endorsment or even massive advertizing in order to work perfectly. I will continue to repurchase and hoard the mundane little bottle forever more - they better not discontinue it either! I have never cried over a material/cosmetic item but i might not be able to stop myself when it comes to this miracle milky-oat potion :)

This review is for the frequent use oatmilk liquid shampoo, not the dry spray. This shampoo has a nice fresh scent and provides a decent lather. I do need a bit of conditioner with this one. After blow-drying my hair is shiny and soft, but a bit flat. It doesn't aggravate shedding, which is a plus. Overall, it's pretty good if not a bit expensive ($18 for 13 ounces), so I probably will use it up and move on to something else.

This is an ok shampoo. It leaves the hair soft and smooth, not dry and frizzy, I don't even use conditioner.
I would like it even more if it cleaned a bit better. I only wash my hair 2-3 times a week (lazy haha), and I feel like this doesn't really clean out all the product buildup from my dry shampoo, hairspray, and hair oils.
It's good for everyday I guess but not cleansing enough for me.
Yes I would repurchase. I'm trying to wash my hair more often actually, as motivation for me to work out more.

Klorane make amazing shampoos, and this one is great for anyone seeking gentle cleansing. Smells great, and has a lovely lather: note that this is not a sulfate-free shampoo, but is gentle nonetheless. Importantly, it does not dry out my very sensitive scalp. I've had severe psoriasis since I was a child, so we're talking really sensitive and fragile! I alternate this with my medicated shampoo. Definitely recommend!
Edit: note that while this shampoo does contain sodium laureth sulfate, this is a relatively mild sulfate. It DOES NOT contain sodium lauryl sulfate... a much more irritating ingredient!

This is a great shampoo for frequent use, but because I don't always wash my hair everyday (I have a dry scalp), I sometimes found it to be too gentle, and not cleansing enough. For someone with color-treated, abused, this is probably a great shampoo for them.

NB this is NOT the dry shampoo in a can, but the trad/usual shampoo, liquid, in a bottle. Some reviewers seem to have been confused.
Decent simple shampoo, that cleans hair, whilst being gentle to scalp and other surrounding skin (neck, mainly). Needs more technique to use (and, let's face it, hair-washing in a hurry i.e. in normal circumstances is neither the time nor the place). Danger of tangling hair and drying it out.
I bought it for Beloved as it was on special offer, 400 ml for the price of 200. Used it once out of curiosity, then started using it myself from time to time. My hair is long, fine, dense/thick, slightly wavy, and tends to the drier end of the "normal" spectrum. Gets frizzy and/or tangled if I use hair stuff that's not sufficiently moisturising. Untreated, usually air-dried. Skin normal, slightly dry, sensitive.
Previous main shampoo: Phytojoba. Other main current shampoo (11/2010, using this one mostly these days): Avalon Organics fragrance-free moisturising olive & grapeseed oil, plus matching conditioner. I prefer the Avalon to Klorane Oat: more moisturising, my hair being drier these days.
The Klorane is a very runny liquid consitnency. Some slight smell, but mild and sort of baby-ish: oaty, very slightly almondy, that "cereal" smell.* It does the job of cleaning hair, keeps it clean for 2-3 days, and doesn't irritate scalp. Works well alone, also works well with a more moisturising shampoo or wash mixed in; done this mixed with other shampoos or a splodge of Everyday Shea unscented moisturising body wash, on the second wash: pour out into palm of hand, mix both splodges there, then apply to hair and scalp. Particularly if hair is very dirty--ex. hair not washed for for 3-4 days and pretty grimy due to long weekend hiking and camping.
Caveats: While you can get this stuff to work, it's not the easiest shampoo to work with, hence a 3 overall. First thing in the morning before work is not a time I want to be being pernickety, especially if I've stuck myself under a shower as part of the waking-up process.
Before washing hair, I brush it out thoroughly (Mason Pearson mixed boar/nylon brush), brush upside down, and wash hair with head upside down. Shampoo is easier to distribute this way, hair less tangled, and less hair comes out when washing it; helped by rubbing at it less.
Contrary to instructions, I wash hair twice: both times with very wet well-saturated hair, the first time a quick impressionistic lather concentrating on the scalp--really just to loosen dirt--then rinsed out fast, and the second time a longer, but gentle, massage of the scalp, leaving shampoo to run down the length of the hair, but not rubbing it. I leave the second wash in for a minute or so, hair piled on top of head, while washing rest of self. Rinse off (head down again), and squeeze out water (using facecloth). Apply conditioner, keeping away from the hair roots and concentrating on the length and ends; then rinse that out pretty much immediately after. Wrap hair in towel, rinse rest of self, etc. I also use leave-in conditioner (or just regular conditioner, used as a leave-in) as needed, at the ends; and Phytodéfrisant on the wavier bits. Then leave hair to dry naturally.
Hair is soft, smooth, in good condition. I can't blame that entirely on this shampoo: technique may help, as well as lovely soft water, and the usual outside factors like diet, stress, sleep. And not using elastic bands, even the no-snag ones: on ponytails for ex., switched to just fabric (stretchy head-band) wrapped round a few times.
Cheap: this was CAD8.00 for 400 ml. While I use slightly more than with the more concentrated Phytojoba, it's still massively cheaper (vs. $24 for 200 ml, i.e. 6x the price). Cruelty-free (and in the case of this shampoo I think vegan?), like other Klorane products and like all the Pierre Fabre group brands (Avène, A-Derma, Ducray, Galénic, Furterer). Widely available in pharmacies & supermarkets in France, in pharmacies elsewhere in Europe, Canada (SDM & LD), some online US stores.
INGREDIENTS: Aqua (water), sodium laureth sulfate, propylene glycol, coco-glucoside, lauryl betaine, sodium chloride, ceteareth-60 myristyl glycol, avena sativa (oat) kernel extract, benzoic acid, citric acid, disodium EDTA, parfum (fragrance), inulin, methylisothiazolinone, sodium cocoyl glutamate, styrene/acrylates copolymer, xanthan gum
* Dislike the smell? Add a few drops of essential oil, whatever fits your fancy and doesn't irritate. Shake well. You may need to reshake before each use. Haven't done so with this stuff, but in the past I've added chamomile, sandalwood, neroil/orange flower water, rose-petal.

I thought the reviewers on Sephora were exaggerating when they said they only got to use this 2 times before it ran out. I got to use it ONCE! ...no kidding. The product itself works, which is why I gave it 3 stars. The can says that it is 3.2 oz. (150ml). The description on the Sephora site has directions for "each use" so apparently this is not suppose to be a sample size. Also, this is the only size available. I didn't use very much. I pumped the aerosol sprayer about 4-5 times as quickly as possibly trying to use very little so that I could make it last...and that was it!...all gone!
Bottom Line: way too expensive (18.00 at Sephora) for 4-5 quick pumps.

I love this dry shampoo. Washing your hair everyday is bad for your hair. I have very fine hair and it tends to be limp. I used to have to wash my hair everyday or it would look greasy. I can use this shampoo for the next day and sometimes even the next day after that and it makes my hair look amazing. It actually gives my hair a lot of volume and it looks CLEAN. I do not have the aerosol version because I read a lot of reviews on Sephora where people mentioned the aerosol can gave them many problems. Although my bottle does not give me the aerosol application it still has a kind of spray pump which I think works great. I can even use just a little by putting a dab in my hands and then using on the front pieces of my hair which tend to get the greasiest. The only thing I would say is to use this BEFORE you get dressed and put on your make-up.

I needed to use a lot of this shampoo on my hair partly because I have a lot of hair and partly because I need to use a lot of this shampoo to wash my hair! I also bought the conditioner and I need to use twice as much of that product and it is not as nice a product as the shampoo. My daughter tried it and she has fine hair and she said it was horrible, never washed out, and so it dried her hair. It doesn't dry my hair but it doesn't soften it either; I get more of a clean head of hair which needed too much conditioner to detangle it.

I do like this shampoo, but I travel between Paris and New York and I find I actually prefer it with the really, ridiculously hard Parisian water! So I use it there and not in NYC. It's a french brand, so perhaps that makes sense, but it would be good if I could use it everywhere. However, it's not quite as gentle as it seems it would be, so it's best paired with the harder water.

This is a great, simple shampoo. Outside of France though, I only ever find quite small bottles of this that usually cost a lot more. So I stock up on 400ml bottles of Klorane shampoos when I'm in France, at ca €9 each. My hair can get quite dry though so I prefer Klorane Nourishing Shampoo with mango butter. yum.

Dried out my hair something awful. I ended up with a tangled mess that frizzed out. That is after conditioning and putting in a Leave-in conditioner. Frequent washes, I don't think so.

After trying Klorane's Quinine shampoo with fabulous results, I decided to buy this and it's my absolute favorite. It's doesn't foam much (thought the second ingredient is SLS, which I normally stray away from) and you wouldn't think much of it at first--but once you blow dry your hair, it'll feel healthy and soft. Love the light, baby scent. Highly recommended!

This is the best invention since sliced bread. I've always had to deal with oily roots but also had the dilemma of dry, brittle and colored hair. So I need to clean my scalp but avoid frequently washing my hair. The crown of my head and bangs gets so greasy by noon that I feel like I need a shampoo.
I used to just use loose powder but that was messy and took up some time. I knew there must be a more efficient and simple way to tame the oiliness so I did some research and found a number of dry shampoos. Bumble & bumble is just too expensive at $45 a can. So of the 5 that I read about, I choose to try Klorane b/c it had a reasonable price tag and had great reviews here on MUA and on Folica.com
Klorane is an aerosol can (150 ml/ 3.2 fl oz) that you use like hairspray except you spray only at the roots. Because the powders used in the product have high absorbtion properties, my hair not only felt clean, it also added body and volume. Some reviews complained about a white residue, however if used according to instructions I don't think this should be an issue. I am Asian and have very dark hair. Following instructions, I spray at the roots where I need it and leave it to work for a couple of mins., then I brush it out and stlye my hair as usual. I have gone 24 hrs without washing my hair, instead using Klorane and it past the test with flying colors.
I am also not a big fan of fragrance other then actual parfume (I buy unscented lotions and deoderant) but the fragrance is so light and pleasent in this product that it did not annoy me at all. It's also meant for those who are bedridden and can not wash their hair with the tradtional soap and water method. Bonus, the can is a nice size so its travel friendly.
I absolutely love this product.

Overall, my experience with Klorane products has been extremely positive. I have one of these wierd scalp/hair situations where I have greasy roots and very dry hair so I have to keep a close watch at all times for either too much oil or dandruff developing. Ever since using Klorane, my hair just looks and feels fabulous - did I mention I color my hair alot also? This is a great general use, everyday kind of shampoo.
Update: Generally the European products like OMBRA, Khlorane, Le Petit Marseillais, Fa and Roger et Gallet, make fantastic natural based stuff. Formulation is much more heavily regulated in Europe and their standards are way higher than North America. Experiment and try them out, but speaking for myself, I've never been disappointed in using any of the products from these names.

Not for me. I bought it without the conditioning balm (rinse) because I thought it was gentle enough that I could lay off the conditioner for a day or two. Holy shnikes! This is one of the strongest shampoos I think I've ever used. It dried out my hair, made it so static-y that I could only half blow-dry it because my hair was standing on end and was sticking together worse than it ever has. I thought that was funny because the bottle says on the back, "has been formulated with an untangling agent and one whitch eliminates static electricity"...what!?!?!?!
Anyway, I think I'm going to have to buy the rinse for this, because there's no way I'm using it on it's own again :(

One of the best drugstore shampoo. Great for dry hair like mine. I have been using the Klorane shampoo on and off.
My hair gets shinner, fuller and healthier. With other shampoos, I get itchy, hair gets dry.
I don't need conditioner with this shampoo.
I only shampoo twice a week. I brush my hair with a pig hair brush almost everyday.
People comment me how beautiful my hair is.

This is an okay shampoo that has been around for a long time. I used it 25 years ago when I had long hair and back then I loved it as it made my hair voluminous and so fresh-smelling. Nowadays, there is a lot more choice out there in terms of hair care, and for the price of this product, I would expect something that does not contain sulfates and has more quality ingredients (the formulations really haven't changed or been improved on after all these years). I also find the performance hit and miss and really need to moisturize afterward. The final analysis - if you're going to spend 10 bucks on a shampoo, I feel Aubrey, Giovanni, or Avalon Organics are superior lines. UPDATE NOV 05: I am using this up on my pouf as a body wash. If I rebuy a Klorane shampoo it will be the Camomile which is their best seller.

its very gentle but maybe doesnt leave my hair quite clean enough. but as i wash my hair every day maybe thats a good thing. i can skip conditioner without any dryness either. for info, i have long asian hair, quite oily.
Age: 19-24 Skin: Combination, Fair-Medium Hair: Black Eyes: Black
My 2nd time buying this product. I wash my hair abt 2x a day, so I really needed something gentle for my hair. The smell is really soothing, not at all offensive. Though the shampoo doesn't moisturize my hair, but it's ok. I'll just leave it for night usage. Will most definitely buy this again!
