I think it will depend on who you talk to in my household, on the opinion that you'll get about Pert shampoo. With that being said, I am the momma with long, VERY thick hair!! We got a super good deal on Pert shampoo about a year ago and so we stocked. Up until a few weeks ago when I switched to Finesse, I was still using the Pert shampoo. I do not like all the varities, but I did really like the "thick and full" version. My husband and children don't mind using all the other varities, but I found that the "thick and full" kind was the only one that could do a good enough job on my hair. I still had to use a good conditioner with this, but it worked fine. It smells good, although not as good as some shampoos. I'm sure it gets your hair clean and helps with knots and things like that. It does foam up fairly well. The main reason I switched shampoos is because I can use much less of Finesse then I do of Pert.
