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.

Average Shampoo

I was only able to use it once with the sample, but it seems just like an average shampoo. I can't say anything good about, but can't say anything bad either.

Good but not great

I like this shampoo in general, but it didn't actually hydrate my hair any more than any other shampoo in my life. It has a nice scent that sticks with you.

Soft Hair

This shampoo foamed up well and made my hair feel very soft and clean, however it was frizzier than normal. I also did not enjoy the smell.

Tiny sample, but nice product

It's hard to really gauge how this works with my hair because I got so few uses out of it. But I can say that it smells great, and I would be happy to try it again.
