Birchbox Breakdown

Studies have shown that just the smell of fresh coffee can make us feel more awake. Now, we may lack a degree in neuroscience, but we suspect there’s something similar going on whenever we smell this minty-fresh cleanser, a stateside exclusive in the Birchbox Shop from Spanish brand Keims. Loaded with invigorating peppermint and nourishing macadamia nut, the pick-me-up formula strengthens weak, dull strands from root to tip. What’s more, the energizing herb creates an instant up-and-at-’em feeling.

How it Works

This refreshing cleanser has peppermint leaf extract to boost circulation in the scalp, stimulating healthy hair growth. The formula causes a delightful cooling sensation on the scalp. Macadamia nut nourishes weak hair for touchable softness and shine, while silk protein works to strengthen strands and repair damage. Even better, this formula comes to you free of mineral oil, silicon, ethanolamine, and paragons. Note: Because this shampoo is made with natural ingredients, it may not suds up as much as others you're used to. Don't worry—upon rinsing, your hair will still be so (minty) fresh and so clean.

How to Use

Work a dime-sized amount into wet hair, inhale the minty-fresh scent, and say “ahhh.” Massage into scalp for one to two minutes before rinsing.

This product had a lovely smell and a nice lather. Left my hair soft and shiny with a good amount of volume. Good price too!

Liked, didn't love
Sampled

I liked this shampoo a lot, but not as much as others I've received from Birchbox. Smelled fresh. Overall good, just not great.

Ok

I like the smell of this shampoo. However with the one application it's hard to tell how it really works with my hair.

Fine, not special

Received this in my box and it was OK. Nothing super special, but smells nice. Not something I would pay much for though.

summer shampoo
SampledPurchased

This shampoo is great for summer when swimming means more frequent hair washing; it does not strip my hair. The scent is not overpowering.

Just so so

I didn't notice anything different when I used this shampoo in my hair. I have very thick, dark hair. I wouldn't buy it that's for sure.

Better for finer hair
Sampled

Very light -- too much so for my thick hair that I didn't feel like it did a great job of either cleansing or moisturizing. Lovely subtle fragrance -- would be great for those with fine hair, because this probably won't weigh it down.

Worked alright
Sampled

I wasn't a big fan of the shampoo. I love that it contains natural ingredients but it made my hair look flat. I have ombre hair and hoped this product worked for me because it's natural. I did not feel or smell the minty fresh feeling that some on here claims to have I might have gotten a bad sample. I would like to try it longer to tell if I see results but I won't purchase something until I know I love it the first few tries.
