This is a good shampoo to use on my sons curly hair. There is probably something better out there, but for now I am more worried about getting it in his eyes sometimes and him not getting hurt. Since it is a no-tears formula, it does not have the harsh chemicals that will burn little eyes if it accidentally gets rubbed in them. I only give it a rating of seven because I still feel he needs conditioner to completely cure the tangles, otherwise we would be brushing his hair forever and he would be in tears. It does rid his hair of most major knots while I wash and definitely does not rectangle his bad spots. This product also has the very trustworthy Johnson & Johnson good smell to it. My son's hair will smell good all day, even after playing hard outside in the dirt like boys do. Performance This shampoo works well, but I still need to use conditioner to cure tangles in my boys curly hair. Scent Smells very good and the scent lasts all day long.
