I started using this shampoo about two years ago when I had damaged my hair extensively from excessive dyeing and bleaching of my hair. My hair was falling out, breaking, and just looked really terrible. It was my mom who actually bought it for me to try and I was very happy when I did. After just the first use, my hair was shiny, smooth, manageable, not greasy, soft, and it speed breaking and falling out. Although here is the con, if you this shampoo and the conditioner every other day for a while then your hair starts getting oily again and feels a bit waxy. I don't know why it does that but once your hair is healed you can't really use both anymore but you can keep using this shampoo, just with a different conditioner. Also, did I mention that this shampoo world really well for recently dyed or bleached hair, it really protects the color very well. Scent This shampoo doesn't really have a recognizable scent, but it smells very nice. It smells very gender-neutral, and unique.
