Oh, I love this stuff. I even use this on my face. I get horribly dry skin everywhere and some dry patches and this has worked instantly to remove them. I keep one at my desk at work and one in my purse for those moments when I get flaky skin on my face. I love the orange scent too and it's super thick, so you don't need alot... this is a must have.
Hair -Unlisted Brand - Pert Plus 2 in 1 - Thick 'n Full

I can't believe I'm writing a review for Pert...LOL. I have a ton of hair products from Kerastase to Loreal, so I'm open to trying different brands. I got my haircut recently pretty short and really don't need a super heavy cond. anymore. I was staying over my parents and my Mom uses this. I had no shampoo so I tried it. Now grant it, I have to use a spray detangler afterwards, but man, this stuff leaves my hair baby soft and really full! I was shocked. I bought a full bottle the next day and have been using this since. Love how it reduces my time in the shower as well :)) Yes, it has ALS (harshest sulfate) in it, but it doesn't seem to bother my scalp. I'll have to see how stripping this becomes and may just keep using it, but not as often. For now, I use this daily and love it.

Love this ♥! It's super cheap and really works at getting those gnarly tangles out. If I didn't have this for my comb out after my shower I literally would lose fist fulls of hair.
This shampoo was nice, but honestly if you have kids I don't know how this would throughly clean a kids hair. It's a pretty gentle shampoo, ingredient wise, so it would be good for adults with dry, colored hair, but I wouldn't say kids. Anyone who is interested, I'm putting mine up for swap with the detangling leave-in.

Blech!! Maybe I used to much, but this left my hair weighed down and greasy all day = :(. I couldn't wait to wash this out. It did help with detangling though.

I bought this but for blondes. I wanted to add to the comment below b/c the same thing happened to me! I too love the original and have been using it for years. I saw this at Ulta at discount and thought it was a cool idea and omg...same thing, total disaster!! I had to go the whole day at work with old lady helmet hair!!! It was so gross, I was so embarrassed. I couldn't wait to get home and wash it out. Do yourself a favor and do not buy this!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Ugh...guess I'm the only one here that did not like this product. I applied it this morning and It just sat on my face all day, never absorbed and it gave me these really painful red oil zits on my forehead...YUCK :(((. Plus, I don't like the fact this is in a jug = bacteria central if you don't have clean hands. I have mine up for swap if anyone is interested.
I got this and the poo for a swap. Like the majority of the other reviewers here; I'm more of a fan of the cond. then the poo. The poo is very harsh, so I'm going to try and pair this cond. with a sulfate free poo and see if I get the same results. I like this cond., b/c I have baby, baby fine hair that's wavy and I have a ton of it, so it's ridiculously hard to detangle. This does a half way descent job detangling, leaves my hair very smooth, soft and shiny. I'm happy with this product and if I can find a shampoo to match, I will purchase. I wish major haircare companies would just stop using harsh sulfates in their products!
Why do haircare companies continue to use ALS in their shampoo's???? It's THE harshest sulfate and is extremely stripping. I'll try and pair the cond. up with one of my sulfate free poo's and see if I get the same results. I got this in a swap and if I went to buy it on my own, I wouldn't have purchased this due to the ingredients. I'm also not a fan of the bottles either. They are very awkward for the shower. **UPDATE** ... continued to use and luckily the ALS doesn't seem to bother my scalp so I'm still not happy about the ingredients though, but this combo leaves my hair very smooth and soft so I changed my rating and up'd it 2 stars = 4

Oh, I love this! I thought it wouldn't be moisturizing enough or the Lactic Acid in this would be to harsh on my delicate, sensitive skin, but it's perfect! Since it has Lactic Acid this exfoliates the dead skin cells leaving my skin clear and radiant! Only downside: I think it's a bit pricy though for such a wee bottle, but it works and that's what counts! LOVE ♥
Styling Products -Victoria's Secret - So Sexy Instant Detangler

I got this through a swap. I was pleasantly surprised. I'm addicited to the smell of this, I love it and I love how it lingers. I couldn't figure out what smelled so good the other day and I'm thinking, oh, it's that VS leave-in spray! LOL. This is a pretty descent detangler too, mind you not the best I've used, so if you have some gnarly tangles, this will not get them out (try Nexxus Luxe) but it's certainly not bad if you just need that little extra slip while combing out after your shower. I may just purchase this again b/c of the scent!
Conditioner -Neutrogena - Triple Moisture Renewal Weightless Conditioner

Sorry, I added this to P'ville - The correct name should be "Triple Renewal Weightless Conditioner"...I added the moisture by accident. Anyway, I LOVE this! Every time I use this my hair is sooo shiny and I love the smell. I also love how this doesn't weigh my baby fine hair down at all. I haven't tried the poo, but that contains ALS, so that's too harsh for me.
The Reconstructive poo is the bomb, this not so much. After using this my hair was a tangled mess and I had to use a ton of spray leave-in just to get a comb through. This left my hair frizzy and dried out looking = blech. I'm putting mine up for swap.
I was pleasantly surprised by this. I usually don't like sulfate-free poo's because they suck all the moisture out of my hair. This one is impressive. It's thick and creamy and after you rinse your hair doesn't feel stripped or depleated of moisture. The only thing is I don't like the matching cond. It did nothing for my hair but leave it a tangled mess. I def. recommend this poo, but not the cond.

I ordered this when it was on sale at Barney's, let me say that is the only reason why I purchased this, it was 1/2 off. I would never in my life pay $140 for shampoo. When I received this; I liked the smell of it so I was excited to try this but I hated how it comes in a big ol' tub which I was so cautious in the shower to try my hardest not to knock it over, honestly it's like liquid gold. It has this weird thick, pasty consistancy which didn't bother me, but honestly this did nothing for my hair, nothing at all. My hair I thought actually looked worst after using this and the Katira Mask, it seemed more frizzier or just lacking the luster I'm used to. I don't know, I def. don't think this is worth the money at all. Thank god I bought it through Barney's where I was lucky enough to be able to return this. If you are truly interested in this see if you can get a sample first!! BTW - my hair is baby fine but I have a ton of it.
