You can use this mild shampoo every day without worrying about drying out strands. For best results, follow with L’eau de Mer Hydrating Condition and use Lumiere d’hiver Reconstructing Masque once a week.

Number 4 Hair Care

Birchbox Breakdown

Whether your hair is over-processed and brittle, or just chronically dry, this is the shampoo for you. The satiny formula is gentle enough to use every day and helps to soften and hydrate strands with natural essential oils and extracts. Free of parabens and sulfates, it foams into a rich lather that leaves hair soft and shiny.

How it Works

L’eau de Mer™ uses vitamin B5 to condition hair and silicone to bump up the gloss factor, plus the brand’s patented Liquid Complexes™. Each of the four complexes is a different blend of natural ingredients, designed to help protect, purify, strengthen, and revitalize hair.

How to Use

The concentrated formula goes a long way. Depending on hair length and thickness, apply one or two pumps of shampoo to your and work into a lather. Work into wet strands and rinse thoroughly and follow with L’eau de Mer Hydrating Condition.

Love the smell

This shampoo makes my hair so soft and manageable. It is not nearly as frizzy as when using my normal shampoo. A little bit goes a long way so my sample has lasted me several shampoos and I have long hair. Definitely will be buying this.

Subtle scent- really beautiful

I loved this sample. It made my curly hair that much more manageable and soft. Very very soft.
The scent is subtle but every once in a while you'll smell it - it's just a clean feeling, clean smelling product.

Soft hair!

This shampoo, as well as it's conditioner friend, made my hair really soft! However, they aren't really for my color-treated hair, so I'm going to stick to my current regimen.

Surprisingly nice

I tried out a sample of this with the conditioner that I had received in my Birchbox. I don't know what it is with this product, but I loved the way my hair felt after my shower: clean, moisturized, light, and soft. I'm rarely sold on a product instantly but I think this might be an exception. Nice clean smell too.

Nothing Special

The shampoo was nice but wasn't any more special or effective than the shampoo I already own. Did its job and my hair looked about the same.

This shampoo is as good as any. However, the scent is just not for me.

Not right for my hair type

This product made my hair very, very soft; however, it was too heavy for my fine hair. It also had a bit of a medicinal scent.

Great manly smell. No trace of girly shampoo. My hair was clean and soft. Smell stayed after hair was dry
