Rewarded Review

This shampoo is fantastic. For context, I have Asian, non-colored, chemically permed hair, and I live in a humid climate and have struggled with an itchy scalp since moving here. I used to have to wash my hair every 2 days as my roots would get really oily and scalp would get itchy as well. Since going through 2 bottles of this shampoo, the itchiness has reduced significantly and my hair is much less oily too - I now can go up to 4-5 days before having to wash my hair. The smell is a mild, minty Chinese herbal smell like some reviewers have mentioned, and isn’t overpowering or off putting to me. It leaves a cooling sensation on the scalp as well, and does not strip the scalp and hair of natural oils and moisture, unlike many harsh clarifying shampoos. Checks all my boxes with being SLS-free as well. Would highly recommend!

I have straight, fine, normal, untreated hair. I've been using this shampoo for years. It leaves my hair clean without drying it out, or leaving a residue. It does not have a gross perfume smell. It also makes my roots look healthier, and my hair looks thicker when using it.

When I went on vacation I bought a travel size of this conditioner and shampoo at my destination. I LOVED IT! My hair is straight and pretty lifeless. I wouldn't say my hair is too thick or too thin, but it's just simply very flat so I have to add a lot of hairspray everytime after showers to boost my hair. This conditioner and shampoo really gives more life to my hair!

I have oily scalp, medium thickness & permed long hair that is slightly dry at the ends. Although the main advertised ingredients are mostly asian herbs, I hardly could smell them as the scent from peppermint is quite overpowering. I don't like the cool after effect but this is still bearable. As per other Giovanni's shampoo that i'd tried thus far, this too lathered up quite easily and will produce dense foams IF a huge dollop is applied. Should I try to scrimp, I would ended up with squeaky clean spot on one side and greasy spots on others. Despite that, this bottle would usually last me 2.5 to 3 months of daily use. And most important thing is, it does deliver a clean scalp and no further damage to my slightly dry hair. For those people who have no access to soft water, do give these sulfate free shampoo a try. The hard water reacts with sulfates which will lead to itchiness, flakes and eventually, hair falls over prolonged period.

I have thick and short oily hair. I have issues with flakes that other shampoos haven't solved. This shampoo not only smells mild and fresh, but took care of my scalp problems. It does leave my hair dry, and I will purchase the conditioner soon to help. I 100% recommend this shampoo to those who need to deep clean their scalp + can't stand the smell of medicated or strongly scented shampoos.

This has been my go-to shampoo for yearsssss. Every time I switch to something different my scalp will eventually start to itch again. So this one is really a keeper!

It's a nice shampoo, no bad smell. Brown in color, did control my dandruff, made my curly hair little bit rough, but applied another brand conditioner and a hair mask from Derma -E made them soft and silky hair.

Although this isn’t a heavy duty clarifying shampoo, it’s great for regular use, without drying out my thick but straight hair, so if you like daily shampooing with something gentle this fits the bill. It smells beautiful too, like a medicinal herb shop.

I have dry, rough hair with oily scalp. Though it does not lather much, I love the herbal scent and clean feeling that I get.
