disapointed
Purchased

I ordered this without a sample first. I was very disappointed. It does smell nice but does not clean well. It is probably the worst shampoo I have ever used and I wish I had returned it...but now I have waited too long

I just didn't care for it.
Purchased

I will say it smelled good. I wish it worked good as well. I could never tell if I used enough or if my hair was getting clean. I never felt like it was clean, so not buying this again.

Don't use if you have a wheat allergy!
Purchased

Several reviewers have already pointed out that this stuff doesn't lather much. It's not supposed to lather very well because it was formulated without sulfates, and sulfates are what makes shampoos lather. So don't expect this to be a sudsy and foamy shampoo. You have to use a lot of it to work up a decent lather.

If you have a wheat allergy (like me) or have Celiac Disease, don't waste your time. This stuff contains wheat germ oil and hydrolized wheat protein. It caused a nasty rash on the backs of my hands, and for months I couldn't figure out what was wrong with me until I was finally diagnosed with a wheat allergy. I kept thinking my hand lotions were causing the problem when it was in fact this shampoo. I felt this shampoo dried out my hair, but when I realized I was allergic to it, then everything started to make sense.

I'm giving this product one star because it smells pretty. It will probably clean your hair just fine if you are not allergic to it.

Alright

It smelled very nice, but I didn't notice a big difference in the texture of my har after using the shampoo. Also, I found that I was allergic to the citric acid in it.

Doesn't Lather Enough
Sampled

The lemon scent is lovely, but for the price I'd rather have a product that lathers more. It's an expensive shampoo and I felt that I had to use more than I normally would have had to with other, cheaper shampoos. Not worth it.

Smells SO GOOD but I have thick hair so...
Sampled

Smells SO GOOD but I have thick hair so "volumizing shampoo" is not something I'd try.

Not for my hair
Sampled

This product did not work for my hair at all. I had to wash twice, just to get a lather.
Hair did feel soft after washing, but prefer not to use a product I have to use twice for the desired effect.

Wish I hadn't purchased
Purchased

I purchased this product because I am always looking to add volume to my extremely fine hair but this didn't do it for me. It didn't lather, but I didn't expect it to. What I didn't expect though, was for it to strip my hair of moisture and make it feel really dry. I am wondering if it will work better on my fall colored hair- it didn't do well with my highlights. I love the smell and really wanted to like this!

too heavy for fine hair
Purchased

I am always weary of "volume" shampoo because they often have too much added to them that does not give volume but takes it away. This was a perfect example. It must be for ethnic hair that is dry.

love the smell, not the product

I loved the smell of this shampoo and was excited to use it. However, it did not suds up like other shampoo does. I had to use a large amount in order for it to lather.
So disappointed!
