First off let me say that I absolutly ador the way this shamoo smells. It is almost theraputic to me in the morning, invigorates me a bit. So, now on the way it is while it does its job...washing your hair! This shampoo comes out of the bottle with ease, and after applied to my hair it lathered up really well. I can't stand a shampoo lacking in the lather department. The shampoo rinses out easily and leaves my hair smelling wonderful, pretty much all day long. I find that ,when I use this shampoo in conjuction with the rest of the aussome volume line, I get incredible results. I have very fine hair but I have a ton of it. THis shampoo worked wonders giving me the volume that I crave every day. This shampoo did not weigh my hair down at all and the volumizing effect lasted through most of the day. I also think this shampoo left my hair very silky. This is a great buy for someone who needs a little bit of an extra lift in their do!
