I used this product back in the 80s and loved it then. I have since tried 100s of products over the years and decided to give Paul Mitchell a try once more. I am glad I did because it is still one of the best shampoo's out there. Very gentle on your hair, won't dry it out and leaves it clean and smelling great. I have very thick naturally wavy hair that is colored and it leaves my hair full of shiny, bouncy waves. Love it!

I used to use Paul Mitchell Awapuhi a few years ago and loved it. At the time I had bleached blonde hair. I decided to go red and switched to a shampoo and conditioner specifically for red hair and haven't used the Awapuhi since, until last week. What a mistake that was.

I do not know what has changed but it's not good. It smells the same, lathers the same but it made a mess of my hair. I've used it about 5 times and it dried my hair out, turned it I to a tangled mess, and now it has frizz. I actually had to buy detangler which i have never had to use before just to be able to get a comb through it.

My hair is to the middle of my back and pretty healthy. I've never had my hair do what it did with the Awapuhi shampoo, even when I was out of my normal shampoo and had to use cheap stuff. I'm at a loss as to why it did this.

I love Paul Mitchell and will try Shampoo One but will never buy or recommend the Awapuhi again.

        wow this is horrible. It is making my hair like a broom! Dry and stickery. horrid! I am using the lightweight conditioner and its not even helping! I am having to use a hair oil or balm on my hair after towel drying to keep my hair from looking horrid. I have wavy normal hair. its not even color treated. two thumbs down

          I use this every day. My hair stays clean and without any product buildup that has happened with other shampoos. I would recommend for anyone with normal to oily hair that requires daily shampoos.

              he loves it. & that's the only thing he'd use.

              but it's only ok in my book; it smells nice & seems gentle enough but that's about it;
              it does not lather too well + it's bit on the $$$$ side.

              so there you go.

                  Comments about Paul Mitchell Original Awapuhi Shampoo, 16.9 fl oz:

                  I am in love with the scent, it's so calming! The first time I used this I thought it was great. I only shampooed my hair and used it as a body wash. Perhaps it removed a good conditioner buildup and so my hair was pretty frizz free, but my skin was a bit dry.

                  However, regularly I shampoo and condition every other or every two days. My hair has nice curls which could be due to this shampoo, but large clumps of hair come out during my shower which could also be from this shampoo.

                  I'll try some other things to see if the hair loss stops or lessens, however, since this isn't an all natural shampoo, I'll try to steer clear of it and find a more earth friendly alternative.

                      My first time use Paul Mitchell shampoo and will be my last time. The shampoo made my hair dry and damage. I noticed a hair loss issue now! Luckily I bought a small bottle.

                          I have thin hair that can really withstand most types of shampoos. I was shocked how dry my hair was after rinsing this out of my hair and was so thankful I had a deep conditioner on hand to counter the effects of it. My husband who never says anything didn't like it either.
