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 parabens. 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.

Not sure about "energizing" but...
Sampled

This is a good shampoo. I usually stick to pharmacy brands for shampoo and conditioner (mostly Fructis), and I enjoyed using this brand, but I don't think it ended up making a difference in my hair after the shower...

Decent
Sampled

Nice smell and seems like a decent shampoo. For my frizzy hair, it didn't necessarily tame it, but my hair did feel smoother after a few uses.

Silky soft hair
Sampled

The scent is masculine, but not overwhelming and doesn't linger. Upon blow drying, my hair becomes soft and clean feeling unlike a lot of shampoos I've tried on the past. I got this in my birchbox a few months ago and used it as a travel size on vacation.

Squeaky clean hair!
Sampled

This shampoo left my hair feeling super clean. It really felt like the residue from everything that I've subjected my hair to washed right down the drain. It has a lovely scent that is a great pick me up. The greatest part was that it seemed like less of my hair went down the drain than usual. Will be picking this up for sure.

Super Fresh & Cleansing
SampledPurchased

I love the smell of this shampoo and the how clean it gets my hair. This is truly a clarifying shampoo in my opinion and I like to use it twice a week to detox my hair from all the other products.

Liked, didn't love

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
Sampled

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