Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simply the Best I have tried almost every (literally) natural shampoo on the market over the years at least once: John Masters Organics, Aveda, Say Yes to Carrots, the Whole Foods 365 Brand, Jason, and many more. This is the only one that I keep coming back to, and it's not just because of the excellent value at the price point (though I do appreciate that). It is simply the best volumizing shampoo I have ever, ever tried. Thank you so, so much for making such a high quality, effective product at such a fair price. I'm hopelessly devoted!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely Phenomenal Shampoo! Okay, so unfortunately I'm only 26 years old and I'm already seeing my hair thin out. I've been searching for a shampoo and conditioner that not only make my hair feel thicker, but are also made from real, natural ingredients. I was strolling down the aisle in my local Fred Meyer (natural section) and this happened to catch my eye. I picked it up and read it and was extremely impressed by the ingredients and what it promised to do. Well, I'll tell you came through in every way. It smells AMAZING, it makes my hair feel wonderful (it's as if the shampoo is a joke), and I can feel good about what I'm using. If you haven't tried this yet, you should. It's fantastic.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic! Not only does this shampoo smell amazing, but it is also the most effective volumizing shampoo that I have ever used. I have extremely fine hair that, even with styling, usually lies flat and limp. However, after just one use of this shampoo (and the accompanying conditioner) my hair has an incredible amount of volume and shine (not oily at all), and it has stayed that way throughout the day! This is simply a great product that absolutely does as it promises. Fantastic!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product I love this shampoo. I use it along with the matching conditioner. I found that some natural shampoos/conditioners didn't rinse out of my hair well and left residue. This shampoo lathers very nicely, and when used with the conditioner, it's easy for me to brush my hair after showering (some natural products left it a bit tangly). Pleasant smell too. I highly recommend!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Organic Newbie Okay, so this is my first time ever using an organic shampoo. I've grown up using the cheapest shampoo out there, but wanted to make a change in lifestyle. I got my package today and jumped in the shower out of excitement to try it. I was skeptical, of course, because I have very thin/oily hair. When I got out, I could automatically feel a difference. My hair felt so much lighter! It felt so clean, like it wasn't being coated down with bad ingredients. The real question was would it keep this lightweight feeling even after blow drying and styling. Boy was I surprised! It has so much volume, and manageability. No more brazilian blowouts...just a normal blowdry and my hair has the bouncy feeling I want. I will never go back to my other shampoos!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It delivers what it promises I have fine hair that lays flat so I'm always looking for a volumizing shampoo that delivers what it promises. This is the only volumizing shampoo that I have used that actually adds weightless volume. I used all the professional brands for years but over the past couple years wanted a natural shampoo that was SLS free. I found this shampoo and LOVE it! It smells great and gives my hair weightless volume all day!!!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Pros & Cons This shampoo smells great! Definitely gets the oil out of you hair, and your hair feels great. After using this shampoo for 2 weeks, I have noticed it is extremely drying to the scalp, I am scratching my head all the time. I have read that if scalp isn't happy, neither is your hair. The bottle is not the best either, the top collects water and when I pick it up I get cold water from the previous day all over my legs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The only shampoo you'll ever need This shampoo is great. Not only does it voluminize the hair but it keeps it very managable and soft. Usually the volume shampoos dry out the hair but this does not. It's amazing. I couldn't stop touching my hair after I wash it with this. I love love this shampoo. Please make this in a bigger bottle.
