Nelson j Beverly Hills Argan Oil 7 Non-Foaming Shampoo

If “non-foaming shampoo” sounds like a paradox on par with “non-delicious cupcake” and “boring unicorn,” allow us to enlighten you. Non-sudsing cleansers are free of harsh parabens and sulfates, two ingredients that can cause damage to already-brittle hair. And this multitasker from Nelson j Beverly Hills doesn’t just stop at cleansing—it works seven wonders for hair health, including conditioning and detangling. Bonus: the minty citrus scent is a delicious wakeup call.

I have an oily scalp that starts to hurt if I don't wash my hair in 24 hours, so I tried to use this on a day when I knew I wouldn't be going out. My scalp still hurt after following the directions and I found the smell nauseating.

Very nice on hair

I thought this product worked well and did its job. It cleans your hair without damaging it. It does not get soapy so don't expect that and it smells like peppermint. The only thing I didn't like we're the little beads that are in it , they got stuck in my hair and just felt weird !!

Not for me, I'm currently using another line non-foaming shampoos/conditioners made specifically for curly hair. I'm completely happy with my other product.
Nelson J on the other hand leaves me much to be desired.

First of all, I hope the full sizes aren't made with as ridgid of a container. I struggled to get my sample out of the bottle. The thing that irrattated me the most was those annoying blue beads. I could never rinse them all out, given how thick and curly my hair is, those large particles just get stuck. I would pick out 3 or 4 out of my hair the next day. So annoying.

The shampoo itself is okay. Smell was tolerable, herbal if slightly medicinal. Didn't find it scenting my hair in any way. In it's performance, I didn't find anything special. Wouldn't really reccomend this to anybody, honestly.

Argan Oil 7 Non-Foaming Shampoo

I was a bit suspicious about the non-foaming part, but quickly realized that it's a great benefit for my frizzy, wavy extra dry hair. In fact I can wash my hair no more than twice a week because of the drying effect of all foaming shampoos. This one felt like washing with a conditioner. Hair didn't feel crisp dry after natural air drying and waves were well defined, without frizzy hallo all over my head. The sampler bottle though is a bit too small IMO and the consistency is too thick (it was a hassle to get it out in the beginning). The tester's bottle neck should be wider for this consistency.

I'm from those school way of thinking and I feel like you need bubbles and suds to know that the product is working correctly. The packaging and smell was great, it's just not for me.

dried out my scalp
Sampled

Immediately after I was done washing, drying, and styling my hair, I wasn't sure whether I liked it. But a few hours later, when my scalp was immensely dry, I knew that this just isn't the product for me. For perspective, I've got shoulder-length, thick, color-treated hair.

Pros:
I like that it's non-foaming and thus better for the environment.
My hair was soft and shiny after using it (and I skipped my usual conditioner).
The scent is a pleasant citrus, but not overpowering.

Cons:
It took all of the 1-ounce trial bottle to wash my hair.
It took a long time to work the product into my hair. The bottle says to use a wide-toothed comb, which I did, but it still felt like it took forever.
There's little blue microbeads in the product, which were really difficult to get rinsed out of my hair. When drying my hair, I discovered that I had missed a couple, so I spent the whole day worried that there were more.
My scalp became really dry and itchy a few hours into my day.

I have used other non foaming shampoos before and was excited to see one with argan oil in it. I have fairly long hair and did not need to use a lot of the product. A little does go a long way. I did not need to use conditioner after and did not even need to use any type of detangler product to get my wide tooth comb through my hair prior to drying it. My hair was light, not weighed down, shiny and had body after using this. I'll be buying this after. It'd be great for days I don't need to go the full mile and deep condition my hair or have time to shampoo and condition. I didn't take as long to blow dry my hair either.

Smelled good

The shampoo smelled good. And worked fine. I didn't think it was especially amazing though... Also the little blue balls in the shampoo didn't rinse out very well.
