    Wow is all i can say for what this shampoo and conditioner have done to my hair. I am on my second bottles and my hair looks gorgeous after using it. Before using this company I was using pantene pro v smooth shampoo and conditioner. It made my hair dry and brittle and did not look good at all. With this i put a dime size of the shampoo in my hair and the same goes for the conditoner. My hair looks a million times better and i have no problem with letting it air dry. Thanks John Frieda again for a fabulous product!!! Oh and i haven't colored my hair or chemically straightened. Its a light brown almost dark blonde and down to my arm pits.

    I purchased this item as I have oily hair and want a product that deep cleans my hair and leaves me free to not have to wash constantly.

    I used this product and found the gel shampoo very thick; I had to water it down so I could spread it on my long hair. I found it difficult to rinse out. I washed two times, as usual and expected it would keep my hair very clean.

    My hair smelled great, but did not stay clean any better than if I was using a Suave product.

    It is difficult to find oily hair shampoo in today's market, I have found. Professionals tell us it is not good for our hair to wash every single day, yet it is still impossible to find a shampoo for the many of us with oily hair that will allow us some extra leeway in how often we wash. I have a demanding job and a family and long, thick hair, and washing every day takes a great deal of time. I was looking for a product that would keep my hair cleaner to give me some extra time from a long daily washing ritual and this product is NOT it.

    I still had to wash twice with this product, using more product than I expected to, due to its thickness. Yet, it did not keep my hair clean very long at all, and I did not notice any conditioning of the hair either.

    I advise watering down this shampoo in your hand with water before applying to hair, so it can be spread. You will also use a little less this way.

    As I said, the smell was really nice, but it did NOT do what the hype said: it did NOT work well on oily hair.

    I will keep searching for a good shampoo for oily hair.

      Comments about John Frieda Root Awakening Purify + Nourish Shampoo For Oily Scalp & Dry Hair, 8.45 fl oz:

      I once drove to five different stores locally looking for this product when I ran out. It is THAT good! Lathers well, smells great, rinses and cleans really well. I have a very oily scalp and have to wash my hair every day, but this isn't drying at all. I will use this until the day they quit making it. This and the conditioner together are the best hair products I have found for my hair.

          I bought this for my daughter who has recently developed an oily scalp but has long hair that is naturally wavy and prone to tangling. Works so great that she could almost skip a day of washing if necessary.

            Comments about John Frieda Root Awakening Purify + Nourish Shampoo For Oily Scalp & Dry Hair, 8.45 fl oz:

            Since I started taking synthetic thyroid hormones, my scalp--for the first time in my life--gets oily, and....my hair doesn't. (I've always had normal hair/scalp). This rendered useless the shampoos and conditioners that I have relied upon for years.

            I tried various products, but watched the degradation of my hair while using them. I found this one on drugstore.com and started using it, along with the conditioner. I use the conditioner maybe three times a week, but the shampoo every day.

            I love the smell--eucalyptus--and it lathers up richly and fast. It doesn't require a second shampooing, which I like, too. My hair seems to be improving again, and my scalp doesn't get as oily as it was.

            drugstore.com is the only place I purchase the product, as it is not available at the local places I shop.

                I have long wavy hair and oily scalp. It's hard to find a good shampoo for me. I have tried PM tea tree, but they are too strong for my hair. But I need to apply more than usual to feel clean of my scalp, maybe they need to create bigger bottle for me.

                I use the John Frieda shampoo, conditioner, smoothing gel and Volume spray everyday. I receive loads of complements about the shine and health of my hair. These products prevent static electricity and make my hair very manageable.

                Service and delivery comments:

                Delivery was fast. Product well packed. Loved the free shipping on orders over $25 and the sale prices on the products I purchased made the prices lower than what I could buy them for at Walmart.

                I did not order this product. It was a substitution that was done without my permission. It is definitely for oily hair and my hair is dry. I would have to skip 3 or 4 days of washing to be able to use this and even then it would slight dry my ends. I am not happy with it and I plan to use it to hand wash clothes, not on my hair.
