I bought this shampoo on sale and thought I would give it a try. I got it home and was so excited to use it because I heard it was supposed to be good stuff. I am not all that impressed because it works just as well as the cheaper brands I have been using. I prefer fructis because at least it leaves my hair looking shiny and soft. The recharge hasn't worked that well for my hair. It feels dry. The other thing I don't like about it is the smell. I can't explain what it smells like, all I know is that I don't like it. I feel like it is highly overrated and not worth the price. It is supposed to help damaged hair. I have been using it for a couple of months and haven't noticed a difference. I feel like my hair was healthier before. After I finish off the bottles of shampoo and conditioner I don't plan to use the same brand again. Effectiveness It cleans your hair but nothing all that special about it. Scent I hate it.
