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 was excited to try a non-foaming hair cleanser, but this product in particular left my hair feeling oily, particularly close to my roots. I know that suds aren't necessarily healthy for your hair, but they have to be better than whatever this did!

On the other hand, I did really love the smell.

Liked the sample.

I really enjoyed the sample, but I am very picky on shampoo and don't see myself purchasing the bigger size.

nice but nothing special
Sampled

I was very curious about this because of the argan oil - something that is great during the cold season when my hair is always full of static because everything's so dry. It worked fine - left my hair clean and normal feeling, but I didn't notice anything different than from when I use my standard shampoo. This shampoo smells good though.

Not bad, not good, just different

I liked the smell of this product, and how ultra soft my hair was after use, but I found I needed a lot of it to really get my hair clean, and the bottle was unwieldy at best.

A bit oily unless you wash thoroughly!
Sampled

I'd heard of non-foaming shampoo but had never tried it before. I love Argan oil, so I loved the smell. However, you do have to be super careful to wash it all out, which can take a while.

greasy feeling

I'm sure it's healthier for my hair, but it left my hair looking greasy.

Not Great

This product did not clean my hair. I'm also not a fan of how it doesn't lather, that just makes me think it really isn't getting my hair clean. I have fine, thin hair, and if it doesn't get clean it looks grease and dirty. That is exactly what happened with this product; it left my hair slightly cleaner than it was before I used it, but greasy after just a few hours. Ick! It just wasn't right for my hair.

undecided; sample too small
Sampled

my hair type: thick, long, wavy, healthy.
I had to use most of the 1-oz. sample bottle just to cover my scalp, and even at that I'm not sure I got complete coverage. Without a mirror it was hard to tell. I used the rest of the bottle on the ends of my hair. I left it in much longer than 3 minutes, because it took a long time just to massage and distribute the product. This product/process actually made my shower much, much longer than usual. I liked the smell, though, and the cool tingle of my scalp when rinsing out the product. My hair doesn't look any better than usual. In fact, it looks a little drier toward the ends, and it feels rougher--not at all smoother.
overall: takes too long, doesn't wow me.

Smooth and smells nice

I have to admit, when I read "citrus and mint," my first thought was orange juice and toothpaste. Thankfully, this was a lovely, mild minty scent and whatever citrus was there was very subtle.

My hair tangles very easily, so following the "comb through your hair" directions was a bit of an ordeal. I managed, although a LOT of hair broke off (even though I used a wide-tooth comb!).

I found it required a lot of shampoo to get the coverage I needed. Once I got out of the shower and toweled off my hair, I noticed it felt very slick and looked pretty healthy. If this shampoo addressed my dandruff, I might consider using it regularly. However, as it stands, my scalp can't really take more than one round of not-dandruff-shampoo before it starts flaking wildly.

This was one of those "nice thoughts" items - but just doesn't work for me on a practical level.
