Initially purchasing this product I was truly excited! I've never spent so much on JUST shampoo, I was expecting a cleansing experience as smooth as butter on my fried & dyed tresses. Instead I got a

Didn't even finish the bottle
Purchased

Not a fan of this shampoo, for the scent or the result. I felt like it dried my hair out instead of repairing and moisturizing it. I took it with me to Jamaica on my honeymoon, to help repair my hair after days in chlorine and just left it there half used at the end of the trip. I would not purchase this product again. The smell wasn't unpleasant, but did bug me with daily use.

Did not like.
Purchased

I did not like this. I only used it for a week or so then got rid of it. The smell is AMAZING, which is why I give it two stars instead of one. Other than that, I hated it. It made my hair really greasy at the top and gave it no volume whatsoever. It might be better for someone with really dry hair, but my hair is normal.

moisturizing

my hair felt very moisturized and weighted down (this is a good thing) after using this and it has a pleasant earthy smell. however, the packaging was not well thought out. i had to tap it like a ketchup bottle towards the middle to end of using it

iffy

When i first started using it, i was wild about it. Now i feel as though it actually leaves my scalp a little greasy. I started using another shampoo because of that.

on the fence
Purchased

I love the way this product smells, but it really tangles up my hair. I take really good care of my hair and I keep it regularly trimmed and healthy. I had high hopes for this shampoo, but will not be purchasing again.

Pluses and minuses

There are great aspects to this shampoo and some not so great. First, the smell is amazing and the shampoo is really rich. Plus its sulfate free, which is great if you are concerned with natural hair care. The problem with this shampoo is the low lather- it takes a lot of water and serious time to work up a lather. I have tried other sulfate free shampoos and not had such a problem so that is one area I wish was improved. Also, the shampoo is usually separated and you need to open the cap, remove some of the shampoo and then turn it upside down and let it mix. At first, I thought I just got a bad bottle, but they are all like that. Because it is such a heavy/thick shampoo, it feels like you have to use a lot and I run through it quicker, which is concerning for the price.

Not great for fine hair
Purchased

It smells great but is weighing down my fine hair. The shampoo also makes it very tangled. I ordered this because Monoi is supposed to make hair stronger. After using for a few months I cant tell any difference.

nice smelling shampoo, but I felt it left a residue on my hair
Purchased

This shampoo is probably best for those who wash their hair every day since it is gentle. When my hair feels like it needs a good wash, this is not my go-to product.

Gooey!!
Purchased

First of all I had no idea when I purchased this that it is meant for African American Hair! The bottle is very strange, you twist the cap to reveal a small hole on the top that you have to squeeze product out of which is very hard and time consuming (Its a small hole!!). The shampoo it self is like molasses!! It is so hard to work through your hair! I can see why this would work for AA hair but for my hair it did not work :(!
