I have now tried several of the scents from WEN; most smell like mint regardless of the scent you choose; this one is no exception. It works but my hair is not any more dazzling or manageable than before. You do not get a solid clean head of hair. You must thoroughly rinse (and rinse, rinse) your hair to keep it from itching afterwards. I smelled very little cucumber or aloe. Not impressive and not worth the extra cost.
I have seborrheic dematitis and in the past I have used Head & Shoulders Refresh every two days to keep my scalp calm. I read some reviews on this particular product and decided to take a chance. The shampoo is wonderful. It does not dry your hair out at all. It conditions your hair while calming the scalp. I do not have to use this shampoo every two days and so far I have only used it once a week. It is a small bottle but it should last you a little while. I have had my bottle for a month and a half and I have used less than 1/4 of its contents.
I purchased this product since I have a lot of fine hair that needed some help. Then a few weeks after purchasing it, a hair dresser at one of those cheaper hair cuttery places that try to sell you lots of product recommened it. Overstocks has this for a decent price and it is a great product. Would order again if available.
Before I begin, I think it is important for you to know my hair type. I have a mixture of 4a and 3c curly hair but mostly 4a, it is soft, fine, and frizzy. I stopped using chemical straighteners a year ago and a month ago cut off my processed hair leaving me with natural shoulder length hair. I live down south where the humidity is high so I decided to wear my natural curly hair. The No Poo does a good job of cleaning your hair without stripping out all of the natural moisture. In fact, I nornmally use a shower comb to detangle my hair during the conditioning process but the No Poo has enough slip that I can detangle my hair while shampooing. When I cleanse my hair with regular shampoo my hair does not feel soft and kind of seems like wiping a mirror clean with Windex. I have to condition it in order for my hair to feel soft again versus feeling like straw. BUT with No poo my hair never feels like straw. I have been using the No Poo without conditioner for a month now and I can say for a fact, you hair will feel clean but not dry. Curly hair needs moisture and this shampoo leaves what you already have in and also does not leave a residue or a film. The smell is pleasant and not overpowering. I have a sensitive nose and I am not annoyed after using this product. The natural curl that you have is supported with this product and leaves your hair looking and feeling healthy. I just received the conditioner today and used it after the shampoo this evening. I was please with it as well. I will wait a few weeks before completing a review on the conditioner but so far so good. I not want to spend money on both product so I tried the shampoo first. I have seen where others have suggesting using a small amount of conditioner after washing for a leave-in. I will let you know how it turned out. Make sure to use a t-shirt versus a towel for drying your hair to cut back on frizz. Overall, great shampoo. I plan to make this the only product I use for my hair in the future. Thanks Overstock.
