I've tried a few of the natural lines of shampoo and so far this product is the best. It doesn't dry out my hair or scalp with daily use. The smell is wonderful, the shampoo lathers very well and washes out the Redkin cream wax product that I use. I would also reccomend the mango conditioner.

I have baby fine hair that is quite thick and can get oily at the roots. I've loved Alba Botanica's products and tried the little "starter pack" of this line. This shampoo smelled great, but hardly lathered - okay, I can deal with that - but it left it a greasy mess! After blow-drying, I was horrified to discover it looked like I hadn't washed my hair in over a week. I tried with/without conditioner and with alternate conditioners... rinsing 3 x as long as I normally need to - I gave up. This doesn't work for me at all.

        This product is so mediocre I couldn't even pick pros OR cons. The scent is inoffensive. It removes dirt. The problem is: the front of the bottle states "No dulling salts" but the ingredients on the back read "sodium, sodium, sodium"

        Comments about Alba Botanica Hawaiian Shampoo, Gloss Boss Honeydew, 12 fl oz:

        My husband and I love the smell of this shampoo, but it (like all SLS-free shampoos I've tried) doesn't lather much. I understand why, but it requires me to use more shampoo to try to clean the oil from my thick hair. And being SLS-free, it doesn't keep my hair clean for more than a day. On the plus side: My hair isn't dry and this is only a 5 on EWG's site. I'd only recommend it if you wash your hair daily.

            Comments about Alba Botanica Hawaiian Shampoo, Gloss Boss Honeydew, 12 fl oz:

            I have naturally very curly hair, and have embraced the no-poo routine as the best method to care for my curls. I have abandoned traditional shampoos, and any products containing sulfates or silicones. Since I use so much conditioner in my hair to keep it hydrated and knot-free, I get some build up after a week of no washing. I like to use this natural hair wash once a week to clean my hair and scalp. I love that it is gentle and doesn't totally dry out my already thirsty hair. I also love the fact that I only need to use a small amount to get a clean head of hair. Since I only use it once a week, I'm still on my first bottle of this stuff after over a year of use! It is a bit more expensive, but totally worth the extra buck in my opinion. Great natural wash if you're on the no-poo wagon!

            Comments about Alba Botanica Hawaiian Shampoo, Gloss Boss Honeydew, 12 fl oz:

            This was my favorite shampoo for over 6 years and I am disappointed at the "new and improved" formula. It does not contain SLS anymore, but it won't lather either and it won't clean. I don't wash my hair everyday and need a little more power to clean it. This no longer does it. The texture has changed too, it's so gelly that it runs when you squeeze it.
            Am I the only one to notice it?

              Comments about Alba Botanica Hawaiian Shampoo, Gloss Boss Honeydew, 12 fl oz:

              This shampoo doesn't create thick, hard to rinse lather, which I like, I don't see that as a negative. It is great to use everyday on thick hair that tends to get oily. I'm totally delighted to find that it makes my hair shiny, shinier than any other shampoo I have used! The scent is wonderful, though I wish it were a little stronger.

                        This product contains Cocamidopropyl Betaine and that is not listed on the ingrediants here. The older version of the Mango shampoo did not, but they are not making it anymore.
                        If you are allergic to that, don't make the mistake that I did.
                        I really wish Alba did not change the ingrediants in the shampoo because I loved it. Now I can't use it at all.

                          I'm shocked. I am a shampoo snob. I've used every shampoo from $2-$30, drugstore to salon, looking for the best and this is it. Most shampoos either dry out or weigh down hair and I notice it SO much on mine because my hair is very fine. This one actually leaves it soft and clean and perfectly balanced. On top of that, it smells fantastic. I still can't believe it and love this stuff- it's perfect (I also use the mango conditioner with it)
