I have used Nexxus products for most of my life, because my parents used them, and my hair dresser also recommends them. This is our current shampoo but it's not our usual. It has an excellent lather, as not all fancy shampoos do. I do have trouble with using too much. I find the bottles very aesthetically pleasing but it's harder to judge the size of a squirt until it's too late. I love the smell. My boyfriend and I both like this shampoo. We will probably buy whichever kind of Nexxus shampoo is on sale, we are more loyal to our conditioner than our shampoo. This will sting in your eyes and nose, but not as bad as some. My hair seems very healthy but I also use a great conditioner that may be responsible. I would recommend this brand but would suggest you select variety based on sales and hair type. Oh, but it's been good for growing out my hair. 6 inches a year is pretty good for me.
