I was so hoping this product would work for severely shedding hair. I tried this product after hearing such good things about it from my stylist and friends. I am transitioning and doing a lot of shedding of hair, which is making me really nervous. I tried this product and it did just the opposite of what it was supposed to do. It actually made my shedding worst and after I rinsed my hair more and more hair came out, sometimes in clumps. I thought maybe it was residual hair since I did not do the best job combing my hair out, but it was not. I tried the product again a week later and the same thing happened. I am convinced it is this product that is making my hair shed more than before. I am not happy with this product at all. Effectiveness It did not work for reducing hair shedding, at least not for my hair. It actually made it worst than it was before I used this product. Scent I gave it a 9 because Garnier products always have a great smell to them. This can be somewhat overpowering though. It smells very sweet and flowery. So if you like that, then this is the product for you.
