I really wanted to love this product and its corresponding conditioner. They're protein-free, sulfate-free, silicone-free, and relatively low on the EWG scale. Plus they're inexpensive and smell amazing, like a delicious tropical drink. The shampoo is moisturizing and I can go longer in between washes when using it. However, despite all this, I can't use it anymore because it breaks me out. Not just my face, but my neck, arms, and chest. I was really surprised by this because I do not have acne-prone skin at all. I've never had this experience with a shampoo. But some ingredient in it not only clogs my pores, but is straight up irritating to my skin. Plus, even when a very small amount gets in my eyes, it burns more than any shampoo ever has.

My hair is slightly wavy/straight, very dry, and fine. I typically use products intended for ethnic/curly/kinky hair, because it's so dry & tends to become like straw, break easily. This shampoo was a disappointment to me. Stripped my hair & left it as dry as any cheap sulfate product. My hair can't handle it without an adequately rich conditioner afterwards. I'm using the remainder as a once-weekly clarifying wash.

This ultra moisturizing shampoo is great for dry hair. I typically wash twice then use the conditioner. This can be used for both relaxed (chemically straightened ethnic hair) or natural hair textures. The Cantu product line is great for dry hair types seeking more moisture. The smell is good, not bad at all. This is a keeper for sure!!!

I like the smell of this. It isn't very moisturizing, I kinda thought it was a bit light for my hair. It didn't lather very much either, but then, I didn't lose A LOT of hair either! Most shampoos are doing that lately, and really, I can't lose any more hair or I'm soon to be bald. I guess I should check out some wigs right about now...........Anyway, it doesn't leave my hair greasy or limp. My hair feels and looks cleaner than it has in a long time. So, I guess it's working, just wished it was much more "moisturizing". I have straight hair that is coarse, dry, and brittle. It breaks easily and falls out every chance it gets. Finding a good shampoo and conditioner is a struggle, but this is better than a lot of others claiming to moisturize, such as Finesse or my old fav, Mane 'n Tail, or anything from Suave, or V05. I could name a crap load of others, but I'm having a brain fog moment and can't remember. I used this along with the conditioner and then slathered on A LOT of the leave in conditioner. Hair feels soft and smells nice. Stickin' with this trio until I know of anything else! Got my trio at Walgreens, where each was $4.99. NOT BAD!

PROS: Good for very, very dry hair. Inexpensive.
This is found in the African-American hair section in my Walmart.


CONS: This is not good unless you need only gentle cleansing. Not in love with the smell, but it's okay.


ALTERNATE: If you want something with a little more cleansing power but still very gentle, try Weightless Conditioning Shampoo by Motions. Organic Root Stimulator's Olive Oil Shampoo (also found in the African-American section at my Walmart) is a bit gentler. I do not like the conditioner in this line because of the scent. It's much worse than the scent in this shampoo..

I bought this on a whim when I went out of town and realized I left my shampoo.

It's a pretty good shampoo, but kind of runny. The smell is sweet, but not sickly so and goes away when you rinse. It detangles very well even thought I don't find it very moisturizing.

I won't buy it again because I have no reason to after I use all of it.

Perfect for natural and/or texturized hair! Leaves my hair feeling *moisturized*, and that's exactly what my hair badly needs!

This is an effective, cheap shampoo that is not only moisturizing, but cleansing. Perfect for those with wavy or curly hair. Plus, it smells like a tropical drink. I found mine at Walmart and other ethnic beauty supply stores. While I wouldn't use this everyday for my meduim textured hair becasue it might weigh it down, I would use this as a treat for when my hair gets a little dry.
