(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!

I like the shampoo for its scent. I know SLSs aren't especially great but I wish this shampoo had a little to work as a vehicle throughout all my hair. I feel like I need more shampoo to cover all of my hair.
My scalp feels great when I'm done, but I don't use it every day. My hair is color treated anyway and its a rather drying shampoo.

Clarifying
Purchased

This shampoo works great for me (with my long, fine, slightly wavy hair) as a clarifying shampoo, a break from my normal, more moisturizing shampoo, and as a summer shampoo. It's too drying for me for regular use in the winter. I also wish it were a cleaner product, with an ingredient list containing no SLS's.

The best!
SampledPurchased

I got a sample of this product in a Birchbox and absolutely LOVED it. I like that it doesn't produce a lot of lather and can penetrate my very thick hair. I find that it works best if I lather up, pile my hair on my head, and let it sit for a minute or two. The sensation on the scalp from the peppermint is divine!

I'm not one to buy expensive shampoos - I'm the type of girl to buy *anything* at the drugstore as long as I have a coupon and it's on sale. I will definitely re-purchase!

Peppermint
Purchased

There's not much to say about this shampoo. It's pepperminty. It makes your head feel cool and fresh. I use a different brand for conditioner, so it's tough to say how this shampoo makes my hair look. It's a clear shampoo, and it's pretty thick. A little goes a long way.

cool and clean

I have fine hair and oily scalp. this product clean well and leave my hair shining. However, it doesn't control oils so I have to shampoo daily.

Great!

I've purchased this a few times and really enjoy it. Mild scent, cleans super well but not overdrying, nice packaging and a little goes a long way, making this last quite awhile. They say quarter size but I use about a dime on my shorter (everyman) cut.

The only cons are:
-I wish the tingling was stronger
-When I get closer to the bottom I flip the bottle upside down. for some reason, with this, the product oozes out. This has happened on three bottles now.

Smells nice
Purchased

It has a nice scent, and it is gentle, but it just wasn't for me. I think if I hadn't been using the conditioner that I use my hair would be dry and frizzy. I feel like this over cleans.

Nice, for oily hair
Sampled

I enjoyed this shampoo, but also felt it left my hair a bit dry if I used it too many days in a row. It was nice to use every 3rd day or so in between other products. Very nice smell and felt great on my scalp!

It smells like a candy cane, and it works too!
Purchased

I love this shampoo. The smell is great--just like a candy case--and it does a great job in taking care of my oily scalp without irritating it. The formula is gentle, yet effective. Without a doubt, this peppermint shampoo is one of my favorite Malin+Goetz products. I highly recommend it.

Good scent

Like the shampoo a lot. I just started to grow my hair and this works great! I have thick wavy hair and when paired with the conditioner, it makes my hair very soft. Pair with a good conditioner because the peppermint oil can be drying.
