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—a relief, since we’re addicted!

How it Works

This mild shampoo skips the harsh detergents in favor of natural peppermint, which purifies strands and stimulates the scalp. Olive oil, 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 for dry scalp in the winter
Purchased

I gave this to my boyfriend over Christmas because he was experiencing a dry scalp. He thought he had dandruff but I think it was the dryness of winter and his current shampoo. He was using an ordinary drug store shampoo. After using this shampoo, his scalp was fine. He really enjoyed it and says he loves the smell of it! I bought the full size product.

Nice scent and adds volume.
Purchased

I have thin hair and it adds enough volume to make styling easier. I love peppermint smell but it isn't overpowering.

Love the smell of peppermint. Shampoo lathers up good and leaves my quite manageable compared to other shampoos I have used.

It's alright

I am a huge fan of peppermint and tingly. I would love for it to tingle more, but I just read you can leave it in for a couple minutes. I will have to try that. Other than that, it does feel fine in my hair. I probably won't buy this product but that doesn't mean I didn't enjoy using the sample. It's hard to judge without using the conditioner along with the Shampoo. SUGGESTION: the Sample does not look like the full product.. Not good for product recognition! I almost passed it right up while searching for it!

Smells great, works well

The shampoo has an amazing peppermint scent and makes my scalp tingle! Using this shampoo is my new favorite way to wake up in the morning! It's cleanses my fine limp hair and gives it volume without leaving it dry.

Love the tingle

I used to use Paul Mitchell tea tree but this stuff is ten times better and priced better too. If you like the tingle this is for you

love the smell

This shampoo smells so good, I just wish the smell would last all day. This is great for a dry scalp in the winter which is when I like to use it.

it's ok, more hype

So everyone from my aunt to best friend is raving about Malin+ Goetz but it was just ok. Dried out my hair a little but it wasn't that minty. Created a good lather- very concentrated. Definitely did a good job cleaning my hair though.

Hype

I was hoping to really love this product. So many of my friends have posted pictures of it on their Instagram but for the price and what a small bottle you receive it wasn't really worth it at all. It is very concentrated and you don't have to use a lot of it. If you have shorter hair I guess you would use less and it would be more worth it. It is invigorating like other people said but I found it a bit drying. Also it contains sulfates and is not paranormal free even though it's suppose to be all natural. Would I buy it again ? Probably not.

This shampoo is superb.

I'm pretty much just piling on to other good reviews. It's fresh, it cleans great, and it has an invigorating smell that gets your day started off right.
Believe the hype.
