My hair is pretty thin and on the shorter side of long. While I don't know if it's helped with GROWING hair, I do think this shampoo has helped with keeping down on breakage.

It's natural to lose hair, but it's a bad sign when the hair you lose is shorter than your hair actually is. That means you're either having bad breakage or you're losing hair faster than it can be replaced. I can honestly say I think this has reduced the amount of breakage I've experienced.

The smell is pretty decent (generic fruity, in my opinion), and you don't need very much to shampoo your whole head (maybe the size of a half dollar). I wash my hair two to three times a week, and this shampoo has lasted almost four months.

It does seem to be a little drying. I've noticed in the shower my hair feels a little more raw after shampooing with this product. For that reason, I would recommend using a lot of conditioner. So yes, you need a good conditioner to pair up with this shampoo.

Anyway, I would recommend it. I needed a new shampoo that was sulfate free, and I'm glad I tried this one. It works for me, and it might work for you. :)

Let me start off by saying, WOW!! I've gone through great lengths to bring my hair back to health over the last six months. From coconut oil masks weekly, to buying $40 shampoo and conditioners, to doing the No-Poo method for a month (longest month of my life), and no heat what so ever since April. I had hair that actually touched the top of my bottom and cut it to shoulder length when I started this hair car journey just because I hadn't cut it in probably 3 years. I received a sample of the leave in conditioner from Influenster and again WOW. Just what the leave in conditioner did to my hair made me want to buy this set. Let me just add, my hair is at waist length now.
In my entire life, my hair has never felt this soft. That's all I wanted. Soft hair. And this shampoo and condtioner, combined with OGX keratin coconut spray and the occasional coconut oil mask has left my hair feeling absolutely perfect. Exactly what I was and have been looking for my entire life.

Due to many years of coloring my hair and being a person who styles frequently, usually with heat involved, my hair had become damaged. It wasn't really bad, but it was dry and broken at the ends and super frizzy at the top. I gave NYM Way to Grow a shot and I was pleasantly surprised. *I didn't see any more growth than normal* ( I've been using this product for about 6 months ) but I have definitely noticed a positive change in the life of my hair, specifically towards the end. The conditioner is creamy and both products smell sooooo good, but neither leaves that film left behind by some shampoos and conditioners. It goes in smooth, cleans and conditions really well, and rinses out with zero issue. It is a product line I will continue to use, definitely.

This stuff is awesome! The smell is FANTASTIC! It is sulfate free which is an excellent quality for a company to have as it is good for the environment as well as your hair. Sulfate free cleansers don't foam as much so be sure to pay attention to not use too much. Also, this shampoo is a bit drying so make sure to deep condition your scalp if you do not have oily hair. I have oily hair so this was not an issue for me. I also notice that it is easy for hair to get tangled while using this product, but the knots were manageable and came out pretty easily. This shampoo exceeded my expectations for being so inexpensive and found at a drugstore.

This is a nice shampoo! It was fairly clarifying for me, so I always made sure to follow up with a nice, thick hair mask or leave-in conditioner. I did not notice my hair grow a lot, but my hair has felt very nice lately. Not sure if that's because of this shampoo or not. I felt like I used it up very quickly. The scent is nice; sort of fruity but also a tad like bleach in my opinion (in a strangely good way!). I probably will not repurchase it, but only because I have other shampoos to finish. It was pretty cheap, so who knows? Give it a try. It was a nice change for me.

This is my all time favorite shampoo! I have natural hair and I'm really picky about what to use in my hair routine but I have fallen hopelessly in love with this shampoo and it's wash-out and leave-in conditioners. I have definitely noticed that my hair is not only softer and easier to manipulate but it's also grown so much in the last 6 months since I started using it! I can't imagine using any other brand honestly. Highly recommended, I typically wash my hair once every other week using this shampoo and it's matching conditioners.

I recently had a hair dye disaster and had to cut off a large amount of my hair making it too short for my liking. After trying many shampoo and conditioners I researched hair products to help grow and fix damage and this was one of the first products to pop up. I purchased it and have been using it for a little while now and really like it! I definitely notice the length of my hair growing which I can greatly appreciate! It also has been fixing the damage on the ends of my hair. I highly recommend this product!!

I picked up this shampoo/conditioner when I found a review saying it was good for oily hair. And it really is- while I still have to wash my hair every day (the greaseball look is not a good one on me), this shampoo has really helped to keep the oil in my hair at bay. More so than most other shampoos I've used that claim to be oil control. And while I don't know if this really helps to "grow" hair, using the shampoo and conditioner in tandem does help to really reduce the breakage I have from heat styling.

This product is pretty decent for how cheap it is. I enjoyed the scent of the shampoo and the conditioner. The condition her has a shea butter feel and scent to it. I like that the opening is at the bottom so the product is always ready to pour. Unfortunately, the product did not WOW me. So I probably won't purchase again. I noticed that the shampoo would leave a greasy feel on my scalp occasionally. This product doesn't MAKE your hair grow. I did notice I had less breakage from this shampoo, though.

I've been buying this shampoo and conditioner and the leave in conditioner and i absolutely love it, it smells great and has made my hair fuller and stronger and not as dry. I've been using for several months and is now the only shampoo I use. It doesn't last me very long but it is pretty cheap in price. And will definitely keep using it. I haven't seen much result as far as growth but it does moisturize my hair and keep it healthy looking.
