This is definitely way over priced for the results you get. My hair is colored so it was already a bad idea to use this. then after I used it, my hair was thick feeling and stringy. I used a conditioner with it, so its not just from me leaving my hair conditioner-less.

Too heavy but smells nicr
Sampled

Smells good but weighed my hair down, much too heavy. Maybe just a pea sized amount on the ends of my hair would be better, but not really willing to try.

Not so great
Sampled

Wondering why this brand is so coveted...this shampoo is not great. I always see Kerastase with the highest prices in stores and have thought they must be a luxury hair care line. Welp this shampoo did nothing special for me. At most it gave me a little boost at the roots, but my ends looked totally fried/dried out. Tried to use some glossing on my ends to mask that, but ultimately would not persuade me to buy this shampoo. I dont know if its loaded with parabens or alcohol or what, but I cant stress how disappointed I was in the results. Especially since I have always wanted to try one of thier products. Perhaps they make one better formulated for normal or dry hair, but my hair is oily at roots and tends to be drier on ends. SO I dont use any drying products or too moisturiuzing shampoos for this reason. My take is a big MEH. Smells nice though.

For the price it's not worth it
Sampled

I was excited to try this product because I have heard many good things about this brand. After using this shampoo my hair was limp and felt oily. This product did nothing for my hair. For the price it is not worth it. I would gladly use a cheap drugstore alternative than this.

Did not notice anything....

Regular shampoo under a fancy name? I only received enough for one application but I do not feel like this shampoo did anything different or special for my hair. Stick with your old favorites!

Not for me

I use this product and there was enough in it for one shampoo. it left my hair straight and without anybody. I really didn't care for how my hair styled after using this product and would definitely not purchase it.

Dry!
Sampled

I'm not sure why they gave me this sample. The weather where I live already dries out my hair. This seemed to dry it out further. Not a win for me.

Listen ladies. Anything for your hair that has SULFATES in it is terrible. Sulfates strip your hair of color and softness, and make it brittle and very dull. Please do not put this on your hair! Bad bad bad!

Don't bother

It might be one of those repairs, but it's probably over time because I honestly didn't see a difference.

DO NOT BUY
Sampled

I got this in a single use sample in my box this month. I was skeptical to try after reading reviews on it. I have thick wavy hair and it weighed down my hair a lot. I wash my hair 2-3 times a week but this made my hair look SUPER oily just after 1 day.
