This was AMAZING when my hair was healthy and dyed dark brown, it gave my hair lovely volume and kept it soft. Then... when I went blonde, through about 5 heavy highlighting sessions, I repurchased it thinking it would help my dried out bleached hair, nope it just made it super tangled. So now my hair needs something more repairing and I won’t be repurchasing this. But if you have non - damaged hair that needs a bit of volume this is probably for you

Aside from how overly perfumed this shampoo was and therefore my hair, I didn't notice anything else with this, nor any difference in my hair quality by switching to this. It lathers nicely and feels like a more higher end formula, but it leaves my hair completely flat for some reason and weighed down. I also notice my hair gets oily a lot quicker than usual when using this which didn't happen before. It's a shame as was interested to see how Biotin and Collagen would work for my hair as both ingredients are something I take as an oral supplement but not applied to hair before. Not something that I would go out and re-purchase in a hurry.

I purchased both the shampoo and conditioner (19.5 ounces in each bottle) for about $9 a piece at the drugstore. I've been using them for about a month.

My fine, shiny, color treated hair needs volume but moisturizing properties too. Most products containing protein, take care of the thin and breakage, but dry out my ends. Most moisturizing products weigh my hair down. This contains protein but moisturizer too. This gave me what I needed wonderfully!

My hair looks thick, shiny and full, with a spicy and sweet fragrance, but it still smells clean. I have noticed that even though it states on the bottle that the effects of the products are temporary, I have noticed the volume lasts, less breakage to my ends and less hair fall since using it. It hasn't turned my blonde ends brassy or stripped the color elsewhere. I've used it in multiple water hardness while traveling and I get good results. I have not noticed any building up of residue.

I've travelled with the full size bottles (something I don't normally do) and haven't experienced any leaks or loose caps. I've dropped them in the shower a few times. The bottle is very sturdy.

I'm pleasantly surprised. I might stick with this system.

Like someone said - smells like an old lady perfume! 100%!!! Quite expensive and did not work well for my dyed, long, straight hair. Scalp and hair felt very oily...
Might be difficult to squeeze out the product from the bottle

Great shampoo and conditioner with a gorgeous scent. I have fine hair and this conditions well without weighing down

The Australian market versions of OGX are like washing your hair in in dish detergent. The conditioners are just as bad.

I have short hair with no body, and I've tried many products to give it volume. This shampoo works! The top flip cap tends to break off, so I deducted for packaging. After I shampoo my hair feels thick and tangled and I'm tempted to use conditioner, but that just weights down the hair. Ulta has BOGO sales sometimes which is how I started using it.

It lathers well, but smells like an old woman perfume. I couldn't stand the smell of my hair wet or dry. My husband even made a comment about me smelling like an old woman perfume. That was the last straw & I returned it. I gave it 2 weeks to try and like it, but it did nothing for me regarding volume.

This brand used to be my go-to for sulfate free shampoos and conditioners in the drugstore. Once I colored my hair it needed a little more TLC, but if you have healthy hair, this is a great suflate free option. It also lathers like regular shampoo, which is nice. Sulfate free has come a long way :)

Well, bummer. I was really hoping this shampoo would work for me but, alas, no. I agree with another reviewer that said the only thing it's got going for it is the smell. Washing your hair with it is a very pleasant sensory experience...the formula feels really good on your hair & hands and it has a warm, sugary smell. However, that's where anything positive ends for me. It leaves my hair dry, tangly (even with a deep conditioner), and the ends look stringy/thin. Yuck. In addition, my regular styling products are rendered totally ineffective.I really can't understand how this works for people with the hair type it's intended for (fine & thin). My hair is baby-fine and I don't have a lot of it, so my choice of shampoo matters. This one is a definite dud for me and I won't repurchase.
