I received a sample of the total Repair 5 restoring shampoo and I absolutely loved it. I have very hard water and sometimes shampoos do not like to lather for me but I had not problem with this shampoo lathering. I felt like my hair was completely clean and the best part is my hair smelled amazing! I love the scent of this shampoo. Since I loved the sample so much I purchased the full size and I have not been disappointed in that purchase yet. I have been using this shampoo for 3 months now and I still love it.
