This is an expensive product that probably isn't for everyone but the smell is enough to make me a return customer. Its light, natural, slightly tropical smell definately can't be matched by any product that I have ever tried. As for performance the shampoo does a great job of cleaning my hai. It also keeps my hair soft and helps restore moisture to my heat treated hair that could be healthier. However, there are less pricey brands out there that also can do that too. The good news is that it doesn't take much product per use so the bottle lasts a fair amount of time. The product also washes out clean and does not leave a residue behind on your hair. It is a nice product with a wonderful smell if you can afford to use it regularly.
