I just recently bought samples sizes of this shampoo and while the smell is good and it does seem to help elimate the dry look my hair tends to always have, it is a bit pricey. Especially when you consider that it really does not lather well at all and if your hair is more than just a little dirty, it takes A TON to clean your hair. I have had trouble with lather and Aveda products in the past but I also know that they do not use a lot of the chemicals that create lather either. I happen to like lather even if it is just a perception of better cleansing. I took off two lippies for the price and lack of lather but this is a good product for really dry hair. I would buy it again but only cheaply on ebay - it does not last long!
