I purchased this shampoo & conditioner after reading about it on message boards. The conditioner in particular seems to be well liked. The original owners of this shampoo brand apparently sold it a while back to Lafes, and there was seems to be a lot of controversy regarding the ingredients. But Lafes says the ingredients were not changed, rather the original ingredient list was not fully disclosed & they are only disclosing what was it it all along, that the formula was not changed.

Anyways, I bought this for my fine hair, oilier at roots, drier at ends. My hair is also prone to shedding. The description says that this shampoo is supposed to help remove DHT build up, which I believe is part of my problem with hair shedding (I also seem to be sensitive to certain ingredients). It comes in a huge 16 ounce bottle, with retro 1970s style packaging. It smells really good. Does anyone remember Faberge Organics Wheat Germ Oil & Honey shampoo? It reminds me of that. Unfortunately this shampoo tangles my hair terribly and even with the matching conditioner (which I like much better), I lose tons of hair trying to get the tangles out. Diluting the shampoo didn't really help. Much controversy as there is over sulfates, my hair seems to do better with simple sulfate shampoos & they seem to help with the DHT issue. I am using this shampoo up as a body wash. The conditioner smells different than the shampoo, spicy/ cinnamon-y, and is silicone free yet moisturizing, so I will continue to use it.

I do give it 4, though, because I love how it smells & it works really well as a body wash.
