Second-day hair is widely considered the holy grail of beauty, and this innovative shampoo captures the cool-girl texture of next-day hair—while still feeling clean. Texture-building particles in this formula enhance hair’s natural wave and body as it cleanses, leaving behind a subtle grip that makes it easier to style. Tip: Skip conditioner to get the most texture.

Really adds "grip"

I love this shampoo! I did what the product description said to do, and didn't use conditioner. In fact, I didn't use any other product on my hair, except for some hairspray after styling. My hairstyle held up magnificently all day long; it usually wilts after a while, but I must say that this product does what it says it will do.

A cool product, but it could be better

I have very straight hair that always falls flat. I bought this product in high hopes to give me that effortlessly tousled and textured look with minimal work. After a couple uses, I didn’t really notice THAT much of a difference in texture, and I still have to add other texturizing products to get the volume that I want. It doesn’t make my scalp feel dry at all, which I was kind of worried about initially before trying out this product. As this being a fairly new product, it does have room for improvement.

I hoped that the shampoo would give my hair nice texture because I don't habitually purchase shampoo in this price range. I cannot say whether the shampoo texturizes because after shampooing, my hair was in such a tangled mess it looked like a bird's nest after I got out of the shower. I had to use spray on conditioner to even comb my hair with a wide-toothed comb. The "fragrance" wasn't very appealing either. I won't purchase again.

Best Texturizing Shampoo I've Found!

I have thin, straight, fine, oily hair. Even more than volume...I need texture! This shampoo is incredible--my hair gets just enough texture to style appropriately, without being sticky or anything. The smell is a little strange at first (almost an uber-natural, grain scent or something), but I'm totally used to it by now and my fiance says he doesn't notice or mind the scent at all.

Great for fine hair

This shampoo is amazing for fine hair. Typically I require dry shampoo in order for a style to hold in my hair when it is just washed. Not the case with this one and it holds without getting greasy for several days.
