Rated 4 out of 5 by from Scent Obsessed I have extremely dry hair and this shampoo is more of a purifier than a moisturizer for me. But my hair is wonderfully clean! I just use it less frequently during the week. One of the main reasons I stick with this product is the scent. I have migraines and am easily triggered by most hair product fragrances, though I still would love to use natural scent products. Most are just too strong and start my headaches! But this scent is mild but still amazing! I hope it is replicated in some of their other shea butter products.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent fragrance I used this shampoo when visiting my sister-in-law and fell in love with it. Great smell for a finiky nose. LOVED it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gentle shampoo even for my sensitive skin & nose! This shampoo, I agree it has a soft scent almost like bananas not strong just nice. It is a gentle shampoo so for those with allergies to fragrance it is a good choice and for skin sensitive it did not irritate mine and I am super sensitive to most shampoos & fragrance. I definitely will buy again this & the conditioner... makes hair soft.
