If I had written this review after only my first use, this would have been a very different review. First impressions didn’t start off great thanks to the leaky packaging. At least it smelled wonderful, because it was all over everything in the shipping box despite being wrapped in a plastic bag. The pump was unlocked and a good portion of the lotion had come out of the bottle. I had to waste even more product trying to get the pump to work.
The first time I used it, I applied just like I would any other shampoo. I want to note that was quite thick compared to regular shampoo. I applied my usual generous glob of shampoo, worked into the full length of my hair, and then rinsed after a few minutes. I could tell before I even exited the shower that it hadn’t gone well. My hair was tangled, straw-like, and lifeless… it only got worse as it dried. I had to rewash the next day because it was so greasy.
In disbelief over the high rating this had on Amazon, I decided to explore some of the other reviews there for some tips. I was already aware this would not lather because of the lack of sulfate and I have used products like this before, so that common review issue didn’t concern me. (I know this can be a bit weird to get used to, but it is believed to be better for your hair.) It turned out that I needed to read the directions quite literally. They instruct you to use a dime-sized amount and massage into the scalp.
The next time I washed I used a much smaller amount (a bit larger than dime size) and only on my scalp as directed. I then sort of smoothed it down over the remainder of my hair without rubbing it in and then rinsed. The results were noticeably better before my hair had even dried. My scalp, which gets dried out in winter weather, felt soothed… although slightly tingly. The rest of my hair was smooth and soft. Over the next several uses, my hair became more manageable and the bit of winter dandruff has disappeared. I haven’t used my usual conditioner or styling spray for days because it has been unnecessary.
Overall, it turned out to be a good product worth trying. Smells wonderful and helps keep hair soft and manageable. There are some discrepancies among the reviews that indicate ingredient differences (notably the mention of vanilla and honey scent but nothing in ingredients list)… which seems to be a common issue in Chinese-made items on Amazon. That combined with the packaging issues is why I am giving this a four-star rating.
Pros: Smells wonderful! Works when used as exactly directed. Thick formula. Sulfate-free.
Cons: Packaging issues. Varied ingredients. Made in China.
