Bought this for $8.99cad at Winners which is a pretty good price, there are drugstore (and high end) shampoos priced higher than don't work as well as this. This cleanses well but gently, lots of lather, doesn't seem to strip out hair dye. Scent is fine, nothing special but not offensive. Great everyday shampoo for dry, damaged hair in need of moisture at a reasonable price. Would repurchase, 4.5/5

This shampoo should be named "Tangle producer" not Moisture recovery. Ugh ! As soon as lathered it , I could instantly feel the tangles and knots. Seemed to strip out more moisture ! Sorry I won't be using it again.
Good thing the matching conditioner undid the tangles.

I have long , thick, wavy, color treated hair which feel very dry since I got highlights.

I used this shampoo and conditioner for about a year, and had amazing results! My hair had never felt stronger, and softer. Unfortunately I was having break outs all over my chest and upper back. I spent an entire year trying medication, and at home remedies, but nothing helped. After the YEAR of suffering from acne I decided to stop using this.. And sure enough, within days I was cured. I was always careful to wash my skin after conditioning, so I'm assuming that this leaves an irritating film behind. If anyone is having skin problems, stop using this! For those of you that don't, well I hate you. Wish I could still use it, worked wonders on my hair.

At first, I really liked this shampoo (and the matching conditioner). But after a while, I experienced some major build up in my hair and was wondering, why all of a sudden my hair was changing for the worse, looked dull like never before. I used a cleansing shampoo and went back to my regular shampoo (Matrix Biolage Age Rejuvenating line) which blows this one away by far. My hair is back to its shiny self again.

This shampoo smells great. I wish it worked for me but it didn't. I can see how it could work for some because it is really moisturizing. For me though, it seemed to weigh my hair down. I might try using less and see what happens but for now, its too heavy.

I like to alternate my shampoos, but this is the one I reach for the most. There were times when I used it exclusively, and I never experienced build-up and it remained just as effective as it was the first time (sometimes my hair gets used to products, and doesn't respond so well after a certain amount of time, this is not the case here).
Moisture Recovery is recommended for any type of dry hair. I have thick, coarse, wavy dry hair, and find it excellent for my hair type. I think it's mild enough for thin dry hair as well. However, you shouldn't expect a miracle. If you're hair is very dry, you have to use a conditioner or a mask after this shampoo, but I think it's OK. If a shampoo cleans well, it can't moisturize like crazy at the same time.
Moisture Recovery lathers well, has a pleasant, light floral smell, and did not irritate my scalp at all. It cleans my hair mildly and effectively and leaves it really moisturized, but clean. (Some shampoos for my hair type coat the hair, but MR doesn't.)

Some advice, if you can't justify spending so much on a shampoo. I really urge everyone to try salon products, and if satisfied not be afraid of buying liter sizes on sales. You can check the batch code in the store on your smart phone, and see when a product was manufactured, or if the batch code is valid at all. You can read or look at photos how a certain product should look like, what kind of consistency, color it should have. You can make great deals, not everything is fake that is cheaper. I've used Joico for years, and I've ordered products from their website and other internet stores as well. I didn't find any difference. I check the batch code of the unopened product, and if it's not OK, I'd send it back.

If unopened the average salon shampoo has a 3-year shelf life, Moisture Recovery has 5. I got this number on an information card with my delivery from the Joico website. I'm really surprised at this piece of information, but this is what they said. Once opened, the average salon shampoo can be used for 12 months, Joico for 18. This you can find on the package shown with the usual sign.

I've tried many different shampoo & conditioners..... drug store to high end salon. For years I never found something that wowed me that I would repurchase. I'm very pleased with this line and have repurchased many times (which says a lot coming from me). Do note I have thick, course, dry, frizzy hair that is caucasian.

Average product. Didn't do anything for my dry damaged hair but certainly didn't cause any bad reactions (as most "average" shampoos do to my hair). I found Rahua and that's incomparable to this.

FINALLY ... Find a decent moisturising shampoo and conditioner.
I love to spend on hair products and i m person that never buy drugstore brands but only salon. Over the years i have tried nearly all of them including very $$ ones. Also i have been using for long period Kerastase , Pureology , Redken but didn't find any HG . My last try was Moroccan oil S & C it was better than the others but still not great. My hair is fine , wavy and VERY dry. I constantly abuse with bleach , highlights and colours. I also suffer split ends and my worst nightmare is the amount of frizz my hair have. And to add to all the abuse i do to my hair i live in area with VERY hard water ( i do use 1 x 10 days Joico clarifying shampoo for that which is life saver for me )
Right after trying so many brands and types ( for damaged hair / for dry hair / coloured hair / fine hair ) all i wanted or my hair needed was moisture. Proteins don't do much for my hair but i still use ones every two weeks just to make sure i add some protein as i constantly use bleach on my hair.
After reading on the boards about Joico moisture i decide to try , so i bought the shampoo conditioner set. Honestly this is the best ever MOISTURE set i have ever used.
My last try was Moroccan Oil but wasn't as moisturising as it claimed. I just start the Joico and i saw IMMEDIATELY results. My hair is always shiny and super soft as well as the frizz is reduced significantly . Honestly i can't believe i finally found something that work that good.
I don't have problem using this on my FINE hair at all. To add i also use the balm that is for thick hair. But only apply on mid / ends.
Absolutely love it and will stick with it.
If you concerns are dryness - please try this. I believe there is nothing better.

PS just to add i also used Pureology Hydrate line which was the worst. As long as i used as dryer my hair was going. Not sure why as i use to love this brand but they change the formula ??

I've tried almost everything on the market and I always find myself going back to Joico. I have never had such healthy hair using anything else. My hair is shoulder-length, highlighted, and naturally curly (frequent drying and straightening). I alternate the K-Pak Color Therapy shampoo & conditioner with the Moisture Recovery shampoo & conditioner. I won't ever make the mistake of buying anything else again!
