product seems fine

This had a good scent and certainly cleaned my hair however with such a small sample it was difficult to tell if it would make a difference with my dry hair over time.

Nope

I bought this full size from my hair dresser, and I hate it. Makes my already thin hair heavy and stringy, and I think it's horribly overpriced.

:-/

This was nice. I didn't notice major improvements. I have fine hair and this wasn't too heavy.

Nice smell

This product has a nice smell and a great lather, however, the sample size was small so I'm not sure it did anything different from any other shampoos.

Better for thick/course hair

I have fine hair and this was a little heavy for me. I definitely felt that my hair was softer after using it, but it weighed my hair down. I might purchase it to use it when my hair needs a little TLC.

Smells amazing

My hair seemed a lot stronger after using this - it smells absolutely amazing as well.

My hair felt great!

I really enjoyed using this on my hair - my hair felt great - clean and strong without feeling dried out.

The only thing I wasn't a fan of was the size - I have a lot of hair - long hair, and was only able to get one wash out of this sample. When it comes to shampoo, I want to try it at least 2 washes before I commit to buying.

Good one time use

I ended up using the whole packet but it seemed to cleanse my hair.

long term benefits unclear; nice lather and smell

This shampoo purports to help protect your hair over time. If you give people one and a half shampoos worth of the product in a foil packet to test, there's no way they can comment on or support those claims. That said, it seems like a nice shampoo enough with a good lather and a nice smell that didn't seem to totally strip the oils out of my hair. For the price (and without knowing what a week of shampoo would do) I'm sticking with "meh."
