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.

Made my locks soft shiny and smell amazing. Even after tromping around hot busy London in June all day my hair still smelled fresh and looked clean healthy.

I liked this so much I ordered a full-size bottle. After using it for a couple of weeks, my hair was not getting clean. My hair just got greasy. I gave the rest of the bottle to my niece.

Too bad, I really wanted to like this product.

Amazing
Sampled

I took this sample along with the conditioner on vacation with me. I used it for two weeks, after the pool, swimming in the ocean, and the sweat and grime from a tropical climate.

My hair was in amazing condition with this product. Going back to my Redkin shampoo/conditioner combo has been disappointing.

Read Your Labels!
Sampled

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.

So so

It’s ok. Not amazing but not bad. With the conditioner my hair came out a little dry.
I wouldn’t recommend it.

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.

Husband love!

I got this as a sample and loved it. I forced my husband to try it....afterwards he just kept asking me to feel his hair. Your hair is soft and beautiful, love it! We only use this shampoo and conditioner now.
