    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.

        I was using the Suave Professionals for dry hair and it worked for awhile, but then I noticed my hair getting dry again and tried this. I love this stuff!!! It smells great. It smells like shampoo used in a salon and the mint scent is terrific. It doesn't later that well, but who cares, that just means it doesn't contain a lot of the sulfate ingredient. It really moisturized my hair and I noticed an improvement after the first time I used it. I'll miss paying less for the Suave, but it's worth paying a little more for this because it works.

              I use this product daily and I have color treated hair. It hasn't seemed to affect my color at all. I'm on my second container. I love the smell and so does everyone else. When I let my hair down everyone says my hair smells fresh and clean. Who doesn't want to smell like that? This product works well and the price is nice too.

                I've been using this shampoo since it came out. I've tried other John Freida shampoos and wasn't impressed but I decided to give this a try anyways. I have curly/wavy hair so I'm always looking for shampoo that will wash out all the residue without drying my hair out even more. This stuff seems to do the job for me. My hair looks and feels healthy. It smells great in the shower - minty and refreshing. Even though it comes in a small bottle and I have tons of hair, it tends to last a good while because you really don't need a lot to get a good lather. Overall, I love it and recommend.

                  I was very pleasantly surprised with this product. I just recently started using drugstore hair products instead of salon brands. I have been through the ringer trying to find a good shampoo and conditioner for my medium, dry, course, wavy hair. I decided to try this shampoo and it's matching conditioner and OMG it was amazing. i loved the way my hair felt after my shower. It was soft, moisturized, and it smelled amazing. About a week later i noticed how shiny my was, which is something rare. I started getting compliments on my hair as well, so my friends started using it. I love this shampoo. Being a product junkie i will probably try all of John Frieda shampoos and conditioners.
