Terrible!

While I love the hair mask made by this brand, the shampoo was not so good. It left my hair brittle and dirty.

Smells terrible

I received a sample of this product a few months ago and I finally tried it this week. Maybe I have a bad sample, but it smells TERRIBLE! Like old lady B.O. I didn't realize it until I already had it on my hair. I used a very heavily scented conditioner with it thinking the scent wouldn't last. Oh, I was wrong! Old lady B.O. smell was still there. Ugh! Ended up rewashing my hair. You are going in the trash, amika shampoo!

probably works fine if you're a 'wash your hair every day' kind of girl.

...but I'm not. For me, this shampoo didn't work at all.

I didn't even get a sample- I bought a full-sized bottle outright because it had such good reviews. It smells fine, but I don't think it is exceptionally good.

The first time I used the shamoo, I thought it just didn't lather well, but then I dried my hair and found it looked and felt dirtier than before I washed it. The next time I used it, I kept adding shampoo until it lathered (which ended up being maybe 1/3 cup of shampoo) and it was better, but still felt dirty and i still needed to wash my hair sooner than usual. At this point, I've used the shampoo about 4 times and the full-sized bottle is almost gone. I definitely won't be buying another.

Gross

I don't usually say this, but I hated this product. I used it once thinking it would be magic in a bottle and instead my hair feels like i used waayyyy to much conditioner and never washed it out. When I used this shampoo, I didn't even use conditioner, and my hair felt weighted down and gross. This just doesn't work for me at all, and I'm thankful it was only a sample!

made my hair feel dirty

I'm glad to see I'm not the only one who felt like this shampoo just made my hair more greasy! I brought this on a weekend trip because it was a great travel size and I was so disgusted with the greasy stringy feel of my hair after use that I ended up using the cheap hotel shampoo the 2nd day instead!

Don't use this if your hair becomes oily quick!

I was really excited for this product, but it turned my hair to complete GREASE! I followed the directions exactly, used the right size amount and it was terrible. Would probably be a great product for dry hair, but for hair that gets oily after a day and a half or so, not so good.

So disappointed in this product! Left hair feeling greasy and heavy.

I was so disappointed in this product. My hair is color treated (highlights) and relatively dry. This shampoo literally left my hair feeling greasy and quite dirty. I couldn't wait to wash it again the next day. I do not recommend this product unless your hair is practically damaged and in need of a hot oil treatment or deep conditioning.

Smelled like dog shampoo

I did not care for the smell of the product at all. I did not care for the way my hair felt after my hair was dry. It felt dirty. I had high expectations because I had heard many good things about this product. I disliked it so much I thought I may have had a "bad" bottle.

Not good for fine hair

I LOVE the Amica oil and mask, so I decided to purchase the shampoo and conditioner as well. I have fine, color treated hair. I loved the scent of this product, but it left my hair completely greasy. After a few hours my hair looked and felt as if I hadnt showered for several days. Sadly I was very disappointed in this product :(

Can't get past the smell

I really wanted to like this shampoo, however I can't get past the smell. It smells very strongly of chemicals. It also seemed a bit harsh on my color treated hair-- I had to use quite a lot of conditioner to make my hair feel normal again. I just can't recommend this.
