I love the smell of this product and I think it works best for people with short hair - my two boys and husband love it. Their hair smells good the next day as well. For my long hair, I need to use a lot and often have to shampoo 2x to really feel "clean". I know it is more natural so doesn't have as much lather as shampoos with more chemicals. I also like the pump. A great option :)

This is probably one of the worst shampoos I have ever used. It's fine when lathering but when you wash it out it feels really dry. Almost like the squeaky clean residue you get from a bar of soap. Not something you want in your hair. I would not recommend this and will not repurchase. Gave one star because I love the message behind this brand. I wish it had worked out!

A decent enough shampoo. I have very fine hair, and usually natural shampoos dry it out and make it fragile. This one didn't do too badly - I'd say it's the one that worked second best in all the brands I've tried. I do love the smell, not overwhelmingly minty, sweet with the vanilla, very pleasant. This will be the one I go to when I can't get my hands on my favourite.

As per reviews below, it does take a bit more shampoo than normally. It's what happens when you don't add SLS to make it foam. On tops of that, it's moisturizing, which also keeps it from foaming. Come to think of it however, the size of this bottle will still last you longer than your regular shampoo, even if you use more. If you wash your hair every day, you will need less, but if it's oily, more.
I ended up mixing it with coconut oil in a smaller bottle to make it more moisturising as I prefer moisture over bubbles.
