Great product, especially for the price point.

I originally used this product when my scalp randomly got waxy. It was the strangest thing and nothing I was doing would help remove the waxy feeling near my scalp. I found out it was actually seborrheic dermatitis & I went to Ulta and one of the girls instantly recommended Paul Mitchell awapuhi shampoo. It fixed me up in just one wash!

I have naturally fairly oily scalp, so I love this shampoo as it’s definitely more on the clarifying end of the scale. I wouldn’t recommend it for anyone with a more dry scalp.

It has a light scent and lathers decent. It’s a very runny shampoo, and I have long hair, so I use quite a bit of product every wash, but it really lasts a long time.

This is the one shampoo I will use. My hair gets split ends very easily (I do not use a hairdryer, etc frequently), so I am always looking for a great shampoo and conditioner to lock in the moisture.  Paul Mitchell's Awapuhi shampoo does a great job at doing just that. It leaves my hair feeling silky smooth.

I have straight oily hair. It adds volume and shine. However it doesn’t clean my hair throughly sometimes, so once a week i use Neutrogena® The Anti-Residue Shampoo and it helps a lot! About the smell is a bit stronger for my taste (gave me a headache first time i use it), it doesn’t smell bad though.

First off, I love the smell of this shampoo. My hairdresser recommended it as a daily shampoo and I loved it. It leaves my hair super shiny and soft without build up or weighing it down. I use 3-4 different shampoos for my hair and this will definitely have a permanent place in my shower.

This is my favorite shampoo.  I love the smell and feel.  I feel you can’t go wrong with Paul Mitchell.  They make great products.  It does great with my oily scalp yet keeps hair smooth.  I buy the giant bottle that lasts forever when it’s on sale at Ulta.

Honestly I can't find a PM product that I don't absolutely love but this is one of my favorites because for some reason the name pronunciation just makes me smile. I know that's weird but saying awwwaaahhppooiiiee just makes me smile lol. But as for the product it's self it is the list sudsiest shampoo I've ever used and it also works as a body was too! I enjoy using it, I just wish it smelled a little better.

I used Paul Mitchell Shampoo because my hair stylist used it on my hair and I liked the way it smelled and the way my hair felt. I was disappointed though when I bought some for home use because the formula changed and it was a coconut smell that i didn’t care for.

I love love love this shampoo and have been using it for years! The smell is so relaxing and it always leaves my hair feeling so bouncy and alive. I have a dry scalp and it works well for me so I would recommend to anyone with a dry scalp, but, I don't think anyone with an oily scalp would complain either.

My all time favorite shampoo. I have oily hair that needs to be washed everyday. It's difficult finding a shampoo that cleanses my hair but leaves it moisturized and not weighed down. My hair always feels clean after I use this. It doesn't overly strip your hair. Plus it smells amazing. Definitely my go to shampoo.

This is my tried and true daily shampoo. Years ago, my hair lady sold me a bottle and why it was much more than my store-bought shampoo, it cleans my scalp and leaves my 26 inches straight long hair looking fantastic. Can’t go wrong with this product.

I had a hair stylist tell me that this shampoo would help with dandruff. I see one reviewer commented on it, but has anyone else noticed this?

What does it smell like? I'm thinking about trying it for me and my boyfriend but I don't want it to smell too girly or manly.

Is this shampoo stripping for the hair? Because I had the bouncy curls one and it stripped my hair I didn't like it...
