Birchbox Breakdown

While some shampoos are tailored toward a particular grooming snafu—say, to dissolve product buildup or thicken up wimpy strands—this gentle formula is a generalist. Made with apothecary-grade ingredients and natural coconut, it cleanses thoroughly without stripping hair of beneficial oils. It’s perfect for all hair types.

How it Works

This formula uses silk amino acids to enrich your hair’s natural texture (read: make it easier to manage), panthenol to condition, and coconut extract to add healthy shine. Botanical horsetail extract restores softness, meaning frequent washes won’t dry out your hair.

How to Use

Squeeze a nickel or quarter-sized amount (depending on hair length) of shampoo into hands and work into rich lather in hair. Rinse thoroughly.

Good Shampoo

I love the scent of this shampoo, and it lathers up quite nicely. My only criticism is that it seems to be a bit over priced. Not ridiculously, but shampoo doesn't really last too long.

Almost what I'm looking for

I'm a twice a day shower kind of guy, but my hair looks a bit better with a bit of the daily oil build-up. Not as stripping as most, since it is gentle, but I still find myself only using it at night.

silky smooth hair

I BOUGHT THIS FULL SIZE SHAMPOO CAUSE I READ THE POSITIVE REVIEWS AND I MUST SAY I AGREE 100 PERCENT WITH THEM . THE MOMENT I OPENED THE BOTTLE IT PUT ME BACK IN A BEACH SOMEWHERE IN SOUTH FLORIDA. I LIKE THE WAY IT LEAVES MY HAIR SILKY SMOOTH TO THE TOUCH. IT IS EFFECTIVE IN CLEANSING IT SINCE MY HAIR GETS VERY DIRTY FROM THE DIRT FROM PALYING SOFTBALL GAMES . VERY GOOD PRODUCT AND NOT TOO EXPENSIVE FOR THE VALUE.

Great Shampoo.

Great scent. Leaves your hair feeling clean and not heavy. The best thing about it is it doesn't dry out your scalp like a lot of shampoos tend to do.

Great and mild

This shampoo has been just great since I purchased it. It doesn't leave my hair dried out like a lot of drug store shampoos did and it doesn't seem to build up over multiple days of use or even twice in a day use.

Coconut bliss

The coconut smell is so natural and so smooth. It leaves my hair so soft. I wish I got the conditioner with it too but I am very happy with it

I keep touching my hair

I keep touching my hair because its smooth (I have gross coarse hair) and it smells like a beach party is happening on top of my head! A great one for guys who wash their hair daily, You all should be washing your hair daily btw.

Perfect for summer.

This product smells amazing and is the perfect scent to compliment warm weather, the beach and fun nights out on the town. Its coconut scent is strong but not overpowering, while its lather leaves your hair feeling clean and pampered. Gentlemen, if you're looking to turn some heads, this product will definitely catch her attention.

Boyfriend loves it

I bought this with the conditioner for my boyfriend, he has very curly hair that gets very dry and brittle in the winter. I really like the smell, its not overwhelming and isn't gendered at all. He says that the shampoo alone is wonderful for his hair, the moisture it leaves is amazing and I use it when I can. Worth the money.
