Before I go into it, I want to say that I swapped this on a forum for another product. ;( Dont ask me why.. I just really wanted to try the product I swapped it for.
I loveeee the smell of this shampoo! To me it smells like bubble gum. It did what it states.. Relieve itchiness.. dandruff. Actually thats why I bought it because for some odd reason my scalp is ALWAYS itchy. I mean I finish washing with any shampoo, co wash or clay wash and I’m still itchy. Its not a crazy “omg I am gonna rip my hair out” but its annoying. Anyway, I felt like this shampoo helped that situation.
Regarding removing build up.. Eh.. I did not notice a difference. It’s a shampoo, what can I say. Well I will say this. Your hair will feel clean. Not a dry stripped feeling, but definitely clean. The type of clean that I need to follow with a conditioner. I personally don’t think its very moisturizing like my CON Arganoil Shampoo…hmm that’s probably why I decided to swap it.
Overall I would give this shampoo a 4 out of 5 ♥’s just because I wish it was just a tad bit moisturizing. Would I recommend this? Yes I would. Who knows its might feel moisturizing on your hair. And hey..its very affordable. One more thing, save your receipt, if you don’t like it return it.
