A wise woman once said that a great shampoo is the foundation of great hair. Take her sage advice seriously, and stock up on this apothecary line’s zesty formula. Originally a hotel exclusive, C.O. Bigelow released it to the public after countless fans called to sing its praises. Infused with refreshing lavender and peppermint scents, it leaves hair shiny and clean every time you lather up.
This is a Bath & Bodyworks brand, not a high-end brand. I was surprised to find such a cheap brand in my birchbox. I've tried the brand before and like their scents, but I'm interested in higher-end haircare that does more for the health of my hair.3
NOt sure if I like it or not. It doesn't lather up. I know that is very European and the suds don't really do anything, but I sitll love a good lather. I like the smell.3
After receiving the C.O. Bigalow Lavender Shampoo and Conditioner in my January Birchbox, I waited a week to try them so that I could bring them with me on my birthday weekend getaway. Before I even comment on the effectiveness of the product, I must say that the smell hits your nose immediately and is extremely strong. I like the smell of lavender so this did not make me stray from using the shampoo, but even I had to get used to the potency of the scent. This is one of the major reasons I could not give the shampoo higher than a 7 on the rating scale. Scents are so personal and this can either be a hit or a miss with people. (For example, one of my other friends loved it while my boyfriend and another friend disliked it.) While washing my hair the shampoo did not lather up very well, but I expected that out of this shampoo. Despite the lack of suds, I could feel that my hair was squeaky clean after rinsing it out. I will not comment on the conditioner here since I plan on reviewing that separately, but after I got out of the shower my hair did not feel as tangled as it usually does. The drying time did not vary compared to when I use other shampoo and conditioner. My hair did feel soft and looked shiny (although I use argan oil after every wash) but did not have much volume. Overall, I would recommend this shampoo in terms of how well it works but I would suggest that one should smell it before they purchase it.3
I'm still on the fence about the lavender and peppermint combo. I'm hoping it grows on me!3
I liked the lightweight feel, but I love my shampoo/conditioner from Aveno, which provides more coverage (or feels like it provides more coverage). You'll be hardpressed to get me to switch, but if I find something better, I'm willing to pay anything!3
The fragrance is just too strong for my personal taste. I like milder scented products... or even unscented & all-natural.3
It is a light shampoo, you wouldn't use it for heavy duty scrubbing, but it is great for thinner hair. It smells lovely and will leave your scalp tingly.4
I don't have really long hair but I feel like I used a lot of this to lather up my whole head. It smells great though, a very nice perky morning mint zip! My hair felt clean but not overly dried out.4
This is a very small bottle. My husband and daughter love it, but I can't afford to keep them in stock! It is a very nice shampoo with great fragrance.4
Love this! Great size for the price. Very relaxing but clean scent. Lathered great! And left my hair feeling clean and untangled4
