After years of having my hair unnecessarily damaged from full head foil highlights by unscrupulous colorists I found an ethical colorist who is performing single color process to my fine blond hair. Part of my hair rehab was using up all of my costly underperforming salon products hawked onto me by former colorists who swore I needed. And, of course they had a "NO RETURNS" salon policy. TBH, I'm convinced in former lives many "hair people" were illicit drug dealers. I know people need to eat and make a living but to prostitute yourself for hair bleach/foil and dye is confounding. Then to flat out lie about the possible power of a product is equally insulting. They push and push and push. But, I digress.Enter Giovanni. I needed a relatively inexpensive shampoo for fine, color treated, sulphate free hair that was store returnable. This fit the bill and bought from Whole Foods.Surprisingly I love the scent and the very thick creamy consistency. A larger than a pea size into my palm diluted with water applied to my scalp is almost more than my just below my shoulder blades hair can handle. I don't repeat. I rinse in very cool water and the rest is abundant shine, waves and no tangles. Also, my color isn't fading at all. Amazing! I highly recommend this line and formula. My next purchase is the companion conditioner.

My first venture into the Giovanni hair care world and I'm quite delighted. To be honest I purchased this and the companion conditioner based on being color safe and the fact it was 80% off at a Fairway store closing sale. I figured if it was awful I'd give it to my friend and her daughter. Well, I like this. Alot. I have fine wavy color treated hair that I no longer hightlight. Straight single process to cover gray. This product cleans without stripping and leaves my hair fuller. My colorist warned me that Volumizing shampoo can be drying but I haven't experienced that. I've spent thousands of dollars over the past 30 years on costly salon shampoo that has under performed. No more. As long as its safe for color treated hair, sulphate free and store returnable I'll try. With this I'm so happy I did.

WOW. I am here to echo the previous reviewer's sentiments which are that this line is indeed a miracle. Why is this product line not more widely recommended for those who are struggling with severely dry & damaged hair?! I forgot exactly how I came across this line but I think it was due to me surfing Amazon looking for hair products that contained avocado oil or olive oil as I've noticed that those ingredients seem to really be helping my overprocessed bleached hair which has been suffering from tons of breakage. I was very close to chopping all of my hair off because it felt like straw, was tangling like a rat's nest, falling out, breaking off etc. But in a desperate attempt to explore my options before doing something drastic I found the reviews for this underrated line and most of them were overwhelmingly positive. So I ordered the Giovanni Ultra Moist Olive Oil+Avocado Oil shampoo, conditioner and leave-in spray and I am extremely happy that I did. I had already spent far too much money on expensive products to help "fix" my hair like Joico K-Pak Reconstructer, Pureology Strength Cure, Macadamia Natural Oil Deep Repair Masque, Redken Extreme, Redken All Soft Mega, L'Oreal Total Repair 5 Damage Erasing Balm, Theorie Argan Oil Ultimate Reform Conditioned for Severely Dry and Unresponsive Hair. Some of them seemed to make my hair feel better some of them didn't do much at all. I was honestly beginning to lose hope until I stumbled across this line because I could feel a noticeable impact from the first wash. My hair immediately felt moisturized, softer, less tangled, less frizz, increased shine etc. I was so shook and excited I could hardly believe that something finally really worked. I will continue to use this line in tandem with protein reconstructors to hopefully save my hair from total doom. Also these products are a hell of a lot more affordable than some of the ones I mentioned previously.Did I mention it was cruelty free, sulfate and paraben free and vegan?

Really enjoyed using this product, very good for dry damaged hair. I've used it only for ends, never for roots. Not sure if it's still possible to find it though.Pros: nice smell; easy-to-use pump bottle; makes hair smooth & untangled; doesn't make hair heavy; budget friendly; Cons: feels oily when first applied
