I don't normally use such an expensive shampoo, but I decided that I would indulge myself for once and splurge a little to hopefully get a nice shiny head of hair that I would love to flaunt around. What I got, however, was a disaster that I never expected would happen. Within the first week of using this product, my scalp and hair reacted very negatively to its effects. It didn't seem to hydrate me at all. On the contrary, it made my hair much dryer and even gave me dandruff because it removed moisture from my scalp. It was very depressing and wasteful to throw away the rest of the bottle when I realized its effects on my head. Furthermore, the smell of this shampoo is very bad. It doesn't even seem to have any sort of a sweet or fresh smell that most shampoos try to achieve. It smelled almost bland and tasteless and it made my nose wrinkle when I smelled it. Overall, I was extremely disappointed with this product as it was a waste of my money.
