I received a sample of this along with the conditioner so even though I do not need the extra volume I tried it anyway and I was pleasantly surprised! First of all, the SCENT is AMAZING. I can only describe it as clean and "high end". Love it. It lasts till day 2. Secondly, It makes my hair feel soft and smooth and clean, which is everything I look for in a shampoo. It is also sulfate free!
