What I say:
I have nothing bad to say about this shampoo at all. I love the herbal scent of the product and it does a good job in cleaning my hair and leaving it shiny afterwards. The price is okay for the amount of product you receive and the ingredients list is good too. Definitely a product I would buy again.

What I say:
My first impression is that this shampoo is not as nourishing as other ones I tried, like the one by Australian Organics for example. I have the feeling that it lets my naturally wavy hair look more curly then most of the time, which personally I like. It does smell fresh and like lemon, nothing that I can really notice much after my hair dried though. I will let you know how I got on with it in the long run once I’ve finished it.
