This did exactly the opposite of what it was supposed to. My hair was poufier like it had some kind of a coating on it and wouldn't lie down flat even after straightening it with a flatiron. The hair strands themselves were not frizzy, but the overall effect was, because my hair would not go vertical. As soon as I resumed using my regular shampoo, the problem went away. I'm using it to wash my hand laundry now.

I was a huge fan of John Frieda's Luxurious Volume conditioner, but it's been discontinued!!! I tried this conditioner hoping it would be half as good... Boy, was I disappointed! It really doesn't moisturize any better than your average conditioner and IT SMELLS SO BAD! no thanks

I generally like John Frieda shampoos and conditioners, but this one is just not for me. I have very thick, coarse, curly hair that I usually blow out with a round brush. It's prone to being on the dry side so I like moisturizing products. I didn't find this shampoo particularly moisturizing and it felt more like it coated my hair. In fact, at one point my hair still felt so unclean in the shower that I had to grab my purifying shampoo. I don't find my hair particularly shiny after I've styled it with this shampoo. My favorite shampoos leave my hair clean and fresh without adding too much to weigh it down. I leave the moisturizing agents up to the conditioner since I just add that to the hair from my ears down. I use drugstore and salon products and there are shampoos that are much better and much cheaper than this one. So I will not be repurchasing.
