Sounds like the shampoo has everything I want it to have and do. But I wish it didn't have Methylparaben. I wish it had more natural and organic ingredients. Hopefully they come out with a line that is Parabens and petrochemical free
Squeaky Clean Hair
There were a couple of things I noticed about this product on the first use:
1) it was hard to get the shampoo out of the sample bottle - it's thick compared to most other shampoos I've tried. I see they've addressed that with a pump on the full size version.
2) it smelled great - not overly minty so your hair would smell like TicTacs all day, but clean and fresh
3) the lather was really dense - almost meringue like, compared to the shampoo I was using that lathered up into dish soap lather.
4) it rinsed out really easily and quickly and literally left my hair squeaky clean. I didn't use a conditioner, but found that it wasn't necessary - my hair felt great and obeyed my brush's commands.
Very pleased with this product and I plan on buying the full size version.
Love the scent and the tingle. Makes me feel like it's really working.
Barber shop feel
The barber shop I frequent boasts products aplenty for customers to peruse. I'd seen this shampoo on the shelf when I'd square up with the barber, but I'd shy away because of the price tag. Two cuts ago, the barber shampooed me and left a feeling reminiscent of the warmth and freshness from the stolen nips off the old man's schnapps flask. I asked what brand it was and she walked over and practically handed me the bottle. The mint doesn't overwhelm and it sizzles in all the right ways. My hair felt fresh and not stripped after I rinsed. Superior quality.
I decided to try this out because I was out of my normal go-to shampoo (M+G Peppermint). Within a day or two of using it, my scalp began flaking heavily. I sometimes get a flake or two in the winter when the air starts to dry out but never anything like this.
I switched back to my normal shampoo and my scalp went back to normal. Just to be sure I tried it again 2 weeks later and I started flaking heavily the very next day. I've tried lots of different shampoos with peppermint, tea tree oil, etc in the past and have never had this problem. Really disappointed and hoping others aren't having the same issues.
