This shampoo had me stumped. I didn't get a very good lather, in fact, not much at all. The fragrance was a little to strong for my tastes and I went to bed with a slight headache. Now, with that being said, after I blowdried my hair it looked absolutly amazing, felt soft and looked shiny. So, in the end, my negatives were balanced verywell with the fact that my hair looked and felt incredible.
