This smells great and my first initial use with this shampoo my hair was super bouncy, shiny and voluminous. It looked like I had a salon blowout without any of the effort or price tag. Unfortunately the more I used this the more strawlike my hair became. It was as if the life and moisturize was zapped from my hair, and it became brittle, dry, and lackluster. I stopped using it and it took me quite some time to revive my hair. Using my L’Oréal mask nightly repaired my hair thankfully.

Pretty happy with this product!
It’s about in every store: Target, Walmart, etc., for around $9. It’s Sulfate & Paraben free.

Me & my daughter had dirty, itchy, flaky scalps from hair gel & this cleaned it right up. My daughters kinky-curly hair felt nicely moisturized & didn’t dry out quickly after, which is how Paraben-included shampoos affect her hair. So that made me happy too. It doesn’t have the prettiest smell in the world, it smells like Figs, but it doesn’t stink at all. And I wanted clean hair, not hair perfume, anyway. Besides, the hair cream I put in after, smells beautiful. The shampoo is nice & thick & lathers well. I will continue buying & using!

Love the african black soap line! This shampoo is good for people with severe dandruff or dermatitis which I had! With this and dermatology prescribed shampoos, my dandruff is no longer how it used to be. Using everything in conjunction totally combatted my dandruff issue!!

If you want a great shampoo with a lot of lather look no further! This shampoo will get your hair squeaky clean! Now while it doesn’t have a ton of slip for detangling it does its job at cleaning and then you follow up with the conditioner for a perfect combination!

My hair feels so clean after using this and give my curls that luxurious hydration it’s been lacking especially due to the weather, a couple years back a made a review and asked about this product, after recommendation I’ve tried it and used it ever since!!

This is advertised as treating dandruff and psoriasis. The product is reasonably priced for the amount you get, and a little goes along way. It consistency is thick and the smell is strange. It is almost musky to me. It did prevent dandruff for me, but my hair never felt clean after using it. It still felt greasy. For reference, I think this may be better for coarser, super curly hair and I have fine 2b-3a low porosity hair.

Does this product leave a noticeable smell in your hair? Is it bothersome or does it just smell clean?
