(MALIN+GOETZ) peppermint shampoo

We like peppermint in just about anything so it’s no surprise that we’re fans of this tingly cool shampoo. (We’re not the only ones—it’s been a best seller for years.) The gentle formula combines natural peppermint extract with amino acid-based cleansing agents to balance, clean, and clarify all hair types. It’s gentle enough for daily use—a relief, since we’re addicted!

Dried out my hair
Sampled

I lovedd the peppermint scent and had high hopes for it. But after using it this morning and applying a deep conditioner after, I was shocked to find my hair was dry and unmanageable for the rest of the day! Perhaps it was the combination of products but I have never had an issue with my deep conditioner or any other shampoo. Unfortunately I will not be purchasing this. Hopefully it is better on other hair types!

Itchy and Scratchy
Sampled

The scent of this shampoo is very mild; and I confess, I love a stronger scent when you are talking about an essential oil like peppermint. It didn't tingle on my scalp like I would expect from a shampoo that is mint-based, and as stated on the bottle , it didn't really lather than much. Which is fine - it means lack of harmful sulfates and foaming agents, but I've still used better shampoos that were sulfate free and lathered better.

My hair felt clean - nothing special. However, my scalp began to itch in a way that tells me I was not allergic, but just mildly sensitive to something in the ingredients - not mint, since I have used mint-based shampoos before with no problem.

The sample size was perfect, the packaging was a bit plain, the texture of this shampoo is clear, and the scent is very mildly minty.

There just was nothing "special" or "unique" about this product in a very competitive market. To improve, they could use more essential mint oils to get the scalp nice and refreshed, spruce up the packaging even a teensy bit so it isn't so generic and boring, and there are definitely natural ingredients that could add more lathering.

I love trying new hair products, but unfortunatly I don' t like the smell or taste of peppermint. I like clean smells for my hair and don't think I will enjoy using this shampoo.

Made my dry, frizzy hair drier and frizzier...

I had high hopes for this fresh-smelling shampoo, but it made my dry and frizzy hair even drier and frizzier. It might work better for oily or limp hair, but dry hair beware.

Thick for a Shampoo

Definitely pepperminty shampoo. Your hair will feel great afterward, but it is defitely a thick-feeling product while applying to head.

Scent Wasn't for Me
Sampled

I will honestly say that I only tried this product once. The scent was okay when I took a whiff from the bottle but once I started lathering it in my hair I couldn't handle it. I know this won't be the case for everyone but for me it must have just had a bad association.

Meh

I'm sure this product did a fine job of cleaning my hair but I couldn't even tell it was a peppermint shampoo, no sensation whatsoever, I use a tea tree oil shampoo regularly and it is much more invigorating.

I was really excited to sample this shampoo as the smell is wonderful. However after using the shampoo I noticed that my scalp was starting to dry out. I do not see myself purchasing a full size bottle of this product. Overall the shampoo is not horrible; it's just not for me.

This product met my needs. I am unlikely to make it a regular purchase though, considering the availability of better alternatives.
