Not my fav shampoo

I continue to be underwhelmed by this brand. Birchbox continuously sends samples from this brand, and they are just not a good match for my fine hair. They don't clean as well as my all natural brand from the mall made with botanicals and I am really sensitive to the strong scents from this brand as well. I wish BB would sample additional hair care companies.

Smells terrible

I didn't do much for my hair, and it smells like a wet, musky dog. I was hoping I could mask the smell of the shampoo with conditioner and additional hair care products. Nothing covered it.

So stinky

I received a sample size version of this product in a bonus box. I'm not sure how well this product actually works. I really couldn't get past the scent. It was so strong that I immediately used another shampoo to wash it away. It reminds me of a scent a much older person would wear; it was too strong and musky for my liking. Definitely will not buy.

Hate the scent

I really liked everything about the shampoo except the scent. It smelled like church incense and I couldn't get past that. It has such a strong odor that I had get back in the shower and rewash my hair because I hated it so much. It is a shame though because I really liked how hydrating it felt while I was lathering up.

Overwhelmed

While I like the lather and texture the fragrance was so overwhelming I wound up with a Migraine. I had to wash my hair 3 times just to get some of the scent out.

Smells like Grandpa

It smell like an elderly mans after shave. I got some on my face and it felt like chemical burn. I give it one star because my hair felt soft after use. Also I did not use a blow dryer.

YUCK!!!

This shampoo smells horrendous!! The smell reminded of what I'd would imagine what an 45+ year old man over compensating for being a Harvard drop-out yet going through his mind-life crisis and his Post-Adolescent-Idealistic Phase all in one really bad 80's movie, would smell like. It may work well, but couldn't get past that smell.....

The smell.... ;(

I received the sample size in June's box, and tried the shampoo and conditioner this morning. I'm so ready to go home and wash it out.. the smell is strong and nauseating. Smells a bit like a cross between men's shampoo, some strange spices that shouldn't be used in hygiene, and baby products. I don't feel like it did anything spectacular to the texture or condition of my hair, either. One of the reasons why I love birchbox... samples save me from buyer's remorse!

Smell like a grandma

I finally used my sample. I had it in my gym bag for using after a workout. As I lathered up I realized I just made a big mistake! It wreaks! I had to keep my hair up all day to keep it out of my face. It is over fragranced in a very bad way. I even took another shower when I got home and my hair still stinks. I have never hated a product more. If you are sensitive to smells stay away. Or if you don't' want to smell like your grandma...pass on this product.
