Shampoo smells really great. I dampened my hair and rubbed some in and worked it in and rinsed. I then did a second round, which was fabulous, it foamed up with just the right amount of foam. After rinsing my hair felt super clean and my scalp felt like it was breathing. It had that slightly squeaky, clean feeling without feeling stripped or straw like. I really enjoyed it and it did a good job, which I could tell because my curl pattern showed and my strands looked healthy and shiny. Puseletso
