ApotheCARE Essentials™ The Booster Shampoo

Getting fine, flat hair to look thicker and more voluminous requires a clean slate to work off of, so your strands aren't weighed down by product buildup or oil. This eco-conscious shampoo removes impurities without stripping but also goes beyond that to boost volume and enhance your strands' natural movement and texture so it's bouncier too. The formula contains rosehip oil, which is known to keep your scalp moisturized and stimulate hair follicles (good for hair growth), plus an exclusive Phytoblend (present in every ApotheCARE Essentials™ product) that contains a bevy of natural extracts for healthier strands overall. You can also thank steam-distilled geranium for the refreshing scent that makes shower time feel uplifting.

There is nothing natural about this product. With a name like Apothecare and the mention of rosehip & geranium on the label, it insinuates this is a natural product. But then when you turn over the bottle and read the label, that is not the case at all!

The product also touts that it is an eco-conscious shampoo, yet it's packaged in plastic...

This is a cheap shampoo dressed up to look like a botanical-based shampoo.

ApotheCARE only CAREs about their bottom line.

it made my hair stink
Sampled

I used both the shampoo and conditioner samples for a two full weeks to get it a chance. It gave my hair an odd smell and made my hair feel dry and flat. Threw it out the remaining product and will never order.

I couldn’t use this shampoo because it contains sulfates. Bummer.

Dried out my hair and I don’t even have dry hair. I already have a shampoo and conditioner that I use faithfully so please don’t send me any more of these samples

smell
Sampled

this smelled like I was washing my hair with a flower... the rosehip smells very strongly like a rose and made me uncomfortable.

I did not like the shampoo or conditioner. Smelled terrible. It made me sick to my stomach and the quality felt cheap.

Chemical odor
Sampled

Didn't use the shampoo nor conditioner. Couldn't get past the chemical odor of this product. Smells kind of like hair dye. I'm pretty sensitive to odors, so maybe it's just me. Gave these samples away.
