I have to write a review because of the negatives this one is getting. If you use this as a shampoo, you HAVE to give your hair time to adjust. It's not going to work well if you have been using harsh shampoos filled with chemicals. Use it for a couple of weeks and then it will start working after your hair has adjusted to it. If you can't commit to that, don't buy it intending to use it as a shampoo.
