I'm shocked by the negative reviews! Just kidding, I am totally not shocked. This product does not lather, does not have some grande silicone silkening effect, and needs a little bit of getting used to (as well as a good shake before each use). It is refreshing (very tingly and clean feeling if you get the mint!) and leaves hair shiny and clean. I do have short-ish hair, I've not tried it on really long hair, maybe that's the difference? I really like this and will repurchase when mine is gone, as well as recommend it to men especially. Short hair, tingly freshness, perfect after the gym shower-dude product.
