  • "If this 'shampoo' was made into a liquid form, I might try it again but it was pretty difficult to get enough lather to completely get my hair clean, and I ended up in the shower for way longer than I wanted to be." -- elizabasti, member

  • average member rating: 3.9

  • "Honestly, I didn't see any difference in my brunette hair. This shampoo left my hair rather tangled and the smell was not that great. It cleanses well but does not do what it claims to do which is make your hair radiant." -- mewchica, member
