It didn't later very well at all. My hair still felt like there was product in it after I was done washing the shampoo out, and the lanvender smell really overpowered the mint. Bummer.

I have over-processed, dry, thin, brittle hair and have to be very careful what shampoo I use. No harsh chemicals, no sulfates. I cannot use this shampoo. Nice size though.

I should have listened to other reviewers on this one. I didn't love the smell and it's hard to get this shampoo to lather in my hair without using a whole palm full! I was disappointed with the size but thats my fault for not paying attention to the description.

This product contains sulfates - I don't use shampoo with harsh detergents and surfactants, so while the smell is lovely, it's just not good for my hair.

I try to avoid shampoos that contain such harsh ingredients in it like this esp. Sodium Laureth Sulfate, it's said to cause hair-loss as well being claimed to cause cancer.
I was really looking forward to trying this too, but after reading the ingredient label..No thank you. Knowing that possibility doing more harm than good for you hair! You should look the ingredients up, i'm sure the Birchbox team and writers would be enlightened to know & share this info..

It may work for other hair types, but the chemicals in this shampoo are not healthy for my curly hair.

Like I said in my review of the counterpart conditioner, this duo is the worst thing I have ever received in my Birchbox. Here are just a few reasons I severely dislike this shampoo: Do NOT use if you have colored hair, as Sodium Laureth Sulfate (the dreaded SLS) is the second ingredient...that will strip your color faster than you can say "this stuff smells like vomit"...well actually, it smells like the stuff that they would put on vomit when you were in elementary school. Yes, you know EXACTLY what I'm talking about. Contrary to what the name of the product would lead you to believe, there is no lavender or peppermint essential oils listed in the ingredients. There is the dubious linalool...but there is also Wheat Gluten. ??? In any case, this dried out my normal-straight hair and the conditioner made it feel even worse. After blow-drying I had a frizz halo. Can't recommend.

I actually don't use regular shampoo/conditioner on my hair. I use only WEN by Chaz Dean cleansing conditioner. However, this stuff had a pleasant smell and I did give the samples to my sister. I'm sure this is a great product, and if I used regular shampoo it would have been a great sample.
