A family member got this for me as a gift after seeing other bottles of Organix in my shower. I was happy to try it because I love new hair products but when I smelled it I was not a fan. The smell is so heavy for me. The smell is a very manufactured smell of vanilla. It doesn't smell natural to me at all. The products are not organic even though they are titled Organix. They are paraben free and don't test on animals but their ingredients aren't natural or organic. The conditioner isn't great on this. The shampoo was very nice to me, much like the pomegranate formula but the conditioner was terrible. The smell was too strong and I wanted it out of my hair immediately. It didn't condition and it dried me out. I tried to get through it because a relative bought it for me but it wasn't worth it. I gave the shampoo and conditioner to my first cousin who actually likes vanilla. Effectiveness My hair was dry and tangled. Scent The smell was too strong and very manufactured. It didn't smell natural at all.
