Nelson j Beverly Hills

Birchbox Breakdown

If “non-foaming shampoo” sounds like a paradox on par with “non-delicious cupcake” and “boring unicorn,” allow us to enlighten you. Non-sudsing cleansers are free of harsh parabens and sulfates, two ingredients that can cause damage to already-brittle hair. And this multitasker from Nelson j Beverly Hills doesn’t just stop at cleansing—it works seven wonders for hair health, including conditioning and detangling. Bonus: the minty citrus scent is a delicious wakeup call.

How it Works

Ideal for dry, damaged, and color-treated hair, this tightrope-walking formula thoroughly cleanses without stripping hair’s natural oils—and that applies to dandruff-prone scalps as well. Enriched with hair-and-skin saving argan oil, it functions as a shampoo, conditioner, detangler, shine spray, smoothing serum, color protector, and pre-styling lotion. Somebody’s go-to products are going to start feeling a little lonely.

How to Use

Massage generously into scalp and rinse. Lucky you—you can skip the conditioner step!

Great non foaming shampoo
Sampled

I thought this non foaming shampoo was great. It smelt good and the tingling sensation was wonderful. Not sure why all the bad reviews.

This stuff is amazing.

I had just started using non-foaming shampoos when this showed up in my box; most of the non-foaming shampoos I had tried didn't actually get rid of the oil in my hair. Not only did this cleanse my hair, but it didn't strip it of all the natural oils that are necessary for growing healthy, long, silky hair! I LOVE this product!!

Greasy Mess

I received this in a Mystery Sample Pack.

First of all, let's talk about the smell. It is a very strong minty/citrus smell and it sticks to your hair way too well. I washed my hair with this, then a day later washed it again with another shampoo (twice!) and the mint smell was still present. So if you want your hair to smell like mint, this would be an amazing product for you.

Secondly, the whole "no-foam" idea is interesting in theory, but in practice I couldn't tell which areas of my hair had gotten the product on it since the foam is usually how I can tell. I have extremely thick and long hair that needs a thorough shampooing every few days. This product just weighed it down. It was so greasy feeling immediately after I tried to washed it out than I tried a few more times just to attempt to get rid of the greasy feeling. Didn't work.

On the whole, I couldn't stand this shampoo, and won't even use the rest of the sample up. Once was way more than enough.

Argan Oil Shampoo
Sampled

I liked the scent and how my hair felt after I dried it, but I couldn't get over the non-foaming - while I was in the shower I wasn't sure if I was using enough and if it was doing it's job. Also, the beads didn't rinse out all the way and I was picking them off my scalp for the rest of the day :/

Left my hair greasy and flat. With fine hair I can't really afford that.

Love it !

I love the smell, the way it leaves my hair feeling minty fresh, and I love the little beads in that adds an extra feeling of clean.

Great at first bad after a while

I was excited when this product was in my Birchbox because I had heard non foaming shampoo was great but I had never tried it. The shampoo smelled great and worked well.... but after a week the shampoo was making my hair greasy.

The smell of this shampoo was awesome! It left a wonderful sensation on my scalp. My hair was smooth, but still a little frizzy.

drying

I used this on my day off from shampooing. I did not feel like my hair was vlean, I guess I need a good lather. The smell was unpleasant for my taste. My hair was left feeling dry, whixh is an upset because the oil should be hydrating. Over all not impressed.
