Birchbox Breakdown

We like peppermint in just about anything, so it’s no surprise that we’re fans of this tingly cool shampoo. (We’re not the only ones—it’s been a best seller for years.) The gentle formula combines natural peppermint extract with amino acid-based cleansing agents to balance, clean, and clarify all hair types. It’s gentle enough for daily use.

How it Works

This mild shampoo skips the harsh detergents in favor of natural peppermint, which purifies strands and stimulates the scalp. Glycerin, a beauty cure-all, moisturizes hair for impressive shine and softness.

How to Use

Squeeze a quarter-sized amount of shampoo into your palms and apply to wet hair and scalp. Massage into thoroughly and rinse clean with warm water. For a greater cooling effect, leave shampoo on scalp for 1-3 minutes before rinsing.

Great!!
Purchased

I'm still trying to get use to the peppermint smell as I'm use to more perfumey types of shampoo. But, so far the way it makes me hair feel is super. My hair is soft, silky, completely clarified from any harsh hairsprays and root lifters.

Can't Use everyday
Purchased

This product works great, but I felt like it dried my hair out after multiple days of use. This is particularly unfortunate because then I end up with greasier hair in the morning.

What a treat!
Purchased

I ordered this shampoo for my husband and have ended up using it twice myself and love it. It has left my hair feeling so clean and smells nice. I will order this product again.

Refreshing!
Purchased

A hotel I stayed at gave this shampoo along with it's rooms. I fell in love and searched all over for it! I was delighted to find it here at Birchbox, along with all their other products! This is a very gentle shampoo with a slight lather. The peppermint is a nice refreshing scent, as well as a slightly cooling feel on the scalp. A little goes a long way, so this bottle has had a long life! My boyfriend, whose scalp is always extremely dry, loves this as well. He said it made his head feel like a candy cane. I personally didn't feel like one, but to each their own I guess.

Great shampoo!
Purchased

Like the shampoo a lot. I just started to grow my hair and this works great! I have thick wavy hair and when paired with the conditioner, it makes my hair very soft. Although, it leaves my hair a little dry.

Nice Shampoo

Finally got around to trying this shampoo. I enjoy the peppermint smell. The Shampoo lathers up nicely. Don't know if I'll make it my primary shampoo though, but I've enjoyed the sample!

Peppermint Shampoo
Purchased

I LOVE THIS PRODUCT. The shampoo is great for multiple reasons. A lot goes a long way, so with short hair it has lasted a good 9 months. It works great it smells nice and makes my hair look and feel clean. And lastly it's nice because the peppermint makes your scalp tingle as it sits on your head. I put it on first and wash it off last to let the tingle work, and the peppermint scent helps to wake me up in the morning. Awesome product and it's got great ingredients.

Minty Goodness
Purchased

This minty shampoo is just the thing I need every morning to wake me up! The minty, tingly feel is awesome. I really feel like it is working and cleaning my scalp. I wish there was a peppermint conditioner to go along with it instead of the cilantro one, which is why I have to give it only 4 stars.

A little torn
Purchased

If there was a 4.5 star option, that would be my choice. This product leaves me extremely satisfied on some days and not so much on others. I'm not sure if it has to deal with the oil content on my scalp, but the suds and feel differ from day to day. The smell is very pleasant and subtle, which I find appealing. Some shampoos of the grocery store variety attempt to be a shampoo and cologne all in one, which can clash with your scent of choice. I'm a little over half way done with this bottle and will most likely purchase another unless something else catches my eye.
