Yes I really have tried just about every Bioinfusion shampoo and conditioner just because they never fail. This one is no different. It gives a tremendous cleansing experience and leaves your hair stronger, shinier, and definitely more manageable. I usually follow up with the olive oil shine serum (love it). I would review that one but it's not currently a choice. Effectiveness Same as all the other Bioinfusion shampoos -- it does what it sets out to do as far as cleaning and softening and shining up your hair. Highly effective -- and I highly recommend this! Scent This is the only Bioinfusion shampoo where I wasn't crazy about the scent. I love lavender -- it's just that eucalyptus has never been a favorite of mine. So after I tried this one, I went back to the others because of the scent. Those of you who love eucalyptus will love this!
