Well, I used it for a week. A WHOLE WEEK OF ITCHY HANDS AND SCALP!! LoL! So, no I can't use this product at all now. It just irritates my eczema entirely too much, paired with the baby oil fragrance.. It was just too much and though this product is a great product for someone with normal skin and love the smell of baby oil, this is just not for me.
The product performed well, it made my hair soft and shiny, my curls were in such good shape, I ALMOST told my skin it would just have to deal with it. But in the end... I just couldn't do it. So a great product, if you don't have a sensitive scalp or eczema.
so to make this very brief, it's a great product, but I won't buy it again for myself. Maybe for DH's hair.

OK. I do like this product. It smells pretty nice, and after a night of soaking in, it left my hair so.. SOOOOO... Soft!!!! It has very good slip and the moisture level was high the whole week. So in general I love this product....
What I didn't like was the excess shedding I had after I uncovered my hair the next day. It wasn't like fists full of hair, but it was still pretty bad. I can't say the conditioner caused it, but I can't say it didn't. As you all know, my hair is pretty thin up top and I don't need to lose MORE hair. Also, it took a LOT of product for my hair. I mean, it took like 1/3 of the bottle and I still didn't feel like it was exactly enough. I am heavy with product, but I know when I'm using a lot. And that was a damn LOT.. LoL!! It may be the fact I'm use to Aussie, as that's all I've used since becoming a loose natural. Maybe I'm just only use to that one product. (Love it!!) So every other product has to stand up to it. Then again, I am suspecting my two Holy Grail products are causing excess shedding also, which is why I'm looking for new products to replace them. So I have to put Aussie on the shelf and give new stuff a chance. :p
ANYWAY, will I buy this product again? Well, maybe. I like most of the ingredients and it has loads of oils which most naturals like to add to products like this anyway. The smell is nice, it's moisturizing, makes my hair soft and is cheap. Honestly except for the shedding and the need to use so MUCH, it's a great product. I'd say this is a definite maybe. A solid maybe even. LoL!
But first... More product testing.. :)
Price: I bought a Case 4 years ago for $12, so that's around $2 a bottle, but I'm sure it can be found for under a buck. ($1)
This product is not new, but I couldn't remember if I ever reviewed it or not, so I'm gonna do it now. LoL! I actually bought this product for DH.. A LOT of this product.. A small case of 6 bottles. Now DH washes his hair whenever and doesn't have much of it, so this would last him a LIFETIME! I bought it for him because he said when he use to use it, it seemed to be slowing his hair loss and he likes the smell of it. So I hunted and shopped around until I found him a case of it for about $12. This was about 4 years ago, and we still have it. I've used it a few times on my hair, but was still listening to the hype that I need a "better" shampoo, so I used it, liked it, but decided to move on..
Until now. I'm back on it and I am happy with it. First thing, the smell is divine! It smells like crisp green apples and has a vibrant green colour to boot. Being in a clear bottle, I must say it all looks rather clean and well... NATURAL. The bottles are 18 oz bottles and you get so much lather from like a tablespoon of the stuff that it will last the thickest head a year per bottle! It's not a sulfate free shampoo, but I'm not following curly girl anymore, so that's fine for now. It doesn't really have any cones, but does have "nones" at the very end of the ingredient list. It actually contains fruit extracts and (for some reason.) sugarcane extract. I just love when products use actual foods and they are not at the bottom of the list. Now this product was from years ago, so the formula may have changed since I bought it, and probably since DH was buying it. (He was getting that little white bottle it use to come in. I use to love it in peaches n cream. Smelled YUMMY!) But it works really well. My hair didn't feel stripped or overly dry, it was soft and fluffy.Which I like in a shampoo.PLUS, no excess shedding after I lathered up.. My hair with the new stuff isn't really shedding much- Well, THIS week it didn't, but I'll post that in another post. :)
This review isn't gonna be lone, because what to say? It's a sulfate shampoo that smells like apple scented heaven that DH feels stops hair loss. Simple stuff. :p Will I repurchase this? YES I plan to buy another case if I can find it and maybe I'll look for the peach as well. Which I will review.. LoL!!
What can I say.. The stuff is effective, non drying, and smells wonderful. :) A keeper..
