Just Eh...
Sampled

I was excited to try this product, as I have a friend who LOVES the brand. It didn't excite me the way I wanted it to! The smell was a bit off putting, but I could get used to it, but I just didn't notice a huge difference in how my hair looked, felt or behaved. I'm really glad I tried it, but not sure I would buy it. Sample size was great, though, I got 3 full uses out of the samples!

Different shampoo!
Sampled

I this shampoo does not bubble. I have never used a shampoo that doesn't lather up. Its really different. I don't think I like it. I would have to use more than the sample to really judge it.

Takes some time
Sampled

I've used this product a few different times. I feel like the first week or so with this line isn't great until your hair adjusts to the no poo. It isn't something I can use if I need to have a good hair day.

Not that great
Sampled

No - poo is made for curly hair but it is not really that effective on very coarse thick curly hair such as mine. I find that it is drying and does not soften my hair which is the opposite effect that is intended. Maybe it is better for curly hair that is finer?
The sample size was generous though - I give it that.

Not the best for my hair

I received this system in past Birchbox and used it once and wasn't too fond of it. I realize the shampoo isn't meant to lather but without the lather, I just felt that my hair wasn't getting any cleaner and that I was just rubbing oil around. In addition, the shampoo was pretty strong smelling. Considering the system is meant for curly hair that requires a lot of hydration, the conditioner was very thin and runny and I felt like I couldn't coat my hair with enough. Thankfully, the conditioner didn't smell as much as the shampoo. Lastly, the gel did pretty much nothing for me. It didn't make my hair as stiff and crunchy as another type of gel would have, but it didn't do much in the way of frizz control or curl definition. I have no doubt that the system works for some people, maybe those with more uniform curls rather than inconsistent curls/waves, but unfortunately it didn't do the trick for me.

Not enough body ....
Sampled

This product did what it said it would for the most part. It was the first I'd used a no-lather shampoo and after just shampooing my hair felt really soft. I usually use Beauty Protector and a sea salt spray but decided to only use this system to give it an honest review.
I let my hair air dry with the gel and it did produce soft curls - but my hair ended up a little frizzy in places and was fairly limp. I didn't get much body out of it. I normally use a blow out spray in addition to styling gel for curly/wavy hair and I am also of the "the higher the hair the closer to God" persuasion so I really like my hair to be full and this product didn't do it for me.

Didn't do much for my curls
Sampled

I was skeptical about the non-foaming shampoo, but it did leave my hair feeling very soft, and the conditioner felt rich. I followed them up with the styling gel, but after my hair dried, it had crispy bits that I could not get to soften by scrunching, as they recommend. The softer parts of my hair were just shapeless. I must not have quite the right texture for this system.

Nah
Sampled

This was the first no lather shampoo I have ever used. It was weird feeling not lather it up but not bad. I was skeptical of it actually cleaning my hair and scalp that well but it worked fine. I used the shampoo and conditioner and my hair felt matted together when i towel dried it and almost needed a detangler, which I don't normally use. All day I kept smelling something that smelled like mosquito spray, i then realized it was my hair that was smelling like mosquito spray! NOT GOOD! All in all, I was not impressed.

Not super great
Sampled

I was super excited to try this stuff out because I have super curly hair that is hard to manage. I tried the system once and I would like to try it out once again. But it wasn't anything special from anything else i've used. It does smell pretty amazing though.

Does not work to help wavy hair curl
Sampled

I was hoping that this system would help my wavy/curly hair be more curly. However; after a few uses I have not noticed a difference. It does say "curly", and perhaps I was hoping for a miracle, but I am disappointed with the results of the system.
