(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!

Refreshing, effective shampoo
Purchased

I purchased this shampoo along with the cilantro conditioner after just reading the ingredient list for the conditioner, and seeing that it was sulfate free. Unfortunately the shampoo does have sulfates in it, as I discovered after I used it. That being said, if your skin doesn't have an irritation to sulfates, it is an awesome shampoo (my hair looked and felt great, though my skin was burning). I really do wish I could use it, and I'm keeping it around for guests to use.

I do still use the cilantro conditioner of the same brand, which is sulfate free, and have learned to not cut corners when shopping for new products.

Very clean
Purchased

OK… So I was scared to try it at first, because when I opened it, it smelled a little bit like toothpaste. And when I accidentally got some on my finger, it felt a little bit like a cross between thinned toothpaste and oily lotion. Not necessarily horrible, but not wonderful either. I used it twice, because I hadn't been able to shower in a couple of days. After I got it into my hair, and leathered up, it felt nicer. It got my hair very squeaky clean and fresh feeling, but it didn't really do anything special to it. It didn't really help get rid of any friz or make my hair especially smooth or silky… And I was kind of hoping that when my hair dried, it would dry curly like it used to, or at least wavy. I don't put a lot of product in my hair, and I don't use a lot of heating stylers. I also usually let my hair air dry. Are used to have naturally curly hair, and I know that hair changes as people get older. It's funny, because I was trying to expect nothing at all to happen, but was hoping for too much. It landed somewhere in the middle… Maybe a tiny bit less. Got my hair cleaner than a lot of other shampoos. But I am a little disappointed that it didn't bring back my curly hair. Therefore, all in all, it's a really clean, pretty nice smelling shampoo, but it doesn't really have any exquisite or special properties, and didn't do anything phenomenal to my hair other than get it really clean.

Love the smell of this stuff
Purchased

This was a Christmas gift for my wife. I love the smell of our bathroom after she's used it. She requested it so she gives it her approval.

Decent shampoo, not as peppermint-y as expected
Purchased

Was really looking forward to feeling those tingles and sensory overload of peppermint from using this, but fell short of some of the other peppermint shampoos I have used.

Clean!

I love how clean I feel when I use this shampoo. I feel like I'm getting a therapeutic massage for my head every time I use it. Great shampoo!

Clean Clean Clean

I tried the sample and loved it. I love the peppermint smell and the way my hair feels after shampooing. My hair feels clean since I use styling products and a moisturizing shampoo.

Just ok
Purchased

This shampoo didn't really do anything for my hair. It even left it with a sort of rubbery feeling.

Love the tingles!

Wow, this was actually fun to use. It lathered up nicely and cleaned my hair so well without stripping it and the smell! A little goes a long way, and my hair didn't feel dry or straw-like after using, like some clarifying shampoos do. It does tingle (which I like) and feels cool while it's on your scalp. I'm buying the full size after getting it in the hair sample box.

Love the scent

This is an amazing scent and it cleans your hair so well without residue, but it does not dry out your hair. I use in combination with the conditioner... but do not need to use conditioner every time I wash because the shampoo does not dry out the hair.
