NOTE: THIS SHAMPOO DOES CONTAIN SULFATES AND PARABANS
How I used it: I wet my hair then applied the shampoo in sections, focusing on my scalp
Effectiveness: Upon rinsing my hair felt clean but it was not stripped it all, it felt like if I just followed up with a leave in then I would be fine. I used this prior to a henna treatment so I didn't follow up with the conditioner yet. The shampoo does lather which I love
Smell: It's not anything to write home about. Smells like typical shampoo
Repurchase: Yes and no, I would because it did not strip my hair, it is inexpensive and easy to get, if I have to wash my hair in a rush I would feel confident not following up with conditioner and just applying a nice moisturizer. I would not recommend this product for those avoiding sulfates and parabans.
