Oh Mylanta- The SCENT
Sampled

I was so excited to try these samples, and I had JUST looked at them at Target, and then saw they were an option for my February Box. I used the shampoo and conditioner, just as described on the bottle. The scent was so overpowering that it actually made me sick. I had to rewash my hair the next morning because it was STILL so overpowering. My sheets, pillow and blankets also smelled strongly of this. I used them exactly one time, before the samples went into the trash!

Greasy!!!!
Sampled

The shampoo and conditioner smelled great but left my hair SO greasy and I have dry, bleached hair to begin with. Yuck! Since it’s all natural, I’m not using it on my dog. No good for humans!

No different from any other shampoo/conditioner really
Sampled

This is nothing to write home about. The smell is nice. I have curly/wavy thick hair that is prone to dryness and frizz. I wear it natural so I don't blow dry or flat iron. After using this shampoo and conditioner I used my regular leave in conditioner afterwards. There was a clear increase in frizz when my hair was dry as compared to my normal shampoo/conditioner (Pantene Naturals). Threw the rest out, re-washed my hair with my usual stuff.

Awful smell
Sampled

Based on the other comments about the wonderful smell plus the fact that as a rule I love all things lavender, I thought I’d love this shampoo. Nope. Hated the smell. It’s like a man’s aftershave smell. Yuck. I can’t wait to use it and the conditioner up.

Don't be fooled by "plant-based" claims
Sampled

I was optimistic about this product when I saw the claims to plant-based ingredients, but unfortunately it is full of synthetic fragrance. I was so optimistic upon getting my February box that I went ahead and tried the product anyway, even after seeing fragrance was in the ingredients list--I was excited to try something new! Plus, I've used products in the past with fragrance that wasn't overly perfumey, but just added a pleasant scent. Well the fragrance was so strong that I started getting a headache within 10 minutes after my shower. It was as if my head was sprayed with an entire bottle of perfume, and I couldn't get away from a whiff of it every second. Way worse than any other shampoo/conditioner I've ever used--even ones that are not supposedly natural/plant-based. I went back and re-washed my hair with my usual shampoo and conditioner to try and get most of the strongest fragrance out of my hair.

Don't let companies fool you into how great they are for the planet or your health. One look at the ingredients list will tell you everything you need to know. The "plant-based" ingredient in this product is coconut oil, and upon a closer look, the bottle says "with plant-based cleansers" just meaning it has some or one in there. If you want something more natural, look for longer "free from" lists and in particular ones that also include "free from phthalates" which is the toxic part of synthetic fragrance.

Awful!!
Sampled

I was hopeful for this product seeing it had very few ingredients. The smell was fine and texture on hair was not stripping. But when I tried to comb out my wet hair I kept getting rats breaking off in my comb. Even the next day I had rats in my comb even after using styling products and leave in conditioners. I don’t know if it was the coconut oil or something else, but after losing clumps of hair, no thanks.

Wouldn't buy

My hair is usually oily after a couple of days and this product made my hair very dry and stiff even after letting my hair dry after getting a shower.

Horrible
Sampled

This only pro to this product was the small.

It said safe for color treated hair and it made my blonde look like I ran it through a flat iron for days in end. Dry and flat! I won’t even be giving this sample away for a friend to try.

Terrible
Sampled

I'm a hairstylist and this could possibly be the worst shampoo I've ever used. Did not rinse well from my hair or my daughter's hair and left me with greasy roots and scalp. Shampoo says to take it easy at the roots which is utterly ridiculous considering shampoo should clean your scalp!
