I picked up a bottle of this in Ireland last August. I wash my hair every three days, and I probably use this as my shampoo 75% of the time.
I think it's great. I have a few gray hairs - not complaining, I'm over 40 - and I used to pay my hairdresser $60 +$12 tip to color it with some "organic" stuff that lasted six weeks. I haven't had to pay to color my hair since August (i.e. six months ago), and it's not like the mess of home coloring stuff with the gloves, ruined towels, waiting time, etc. The bottle cost 6 Euros, and there's still at least 2 months worth in the bottle. I like the economics!
Even my hairdresser asked me what I had been doing after three months of using it - he said my hair was in great condition, much thicker, better texture. Not what you would expect to hear from a hairdresser who thinks you must be seeing another colorist.
I have no sense of smell, and don't really care what a shampoo smells like (unless it's bad), so I'll take the word of everyone who says it smells great.
I am surprised at the folks who say it dries their hair out. That hasn't been my experience, but I do not shampoo daily. I'm not using any special conditioners with it. I don't have time! Apart from the $$ savings, I appreciate not being stuck in the salon for 30 minutes every six weeks, because I don't have time for that either.
I have noticed, however, that after six months of using it, my hair looks just a tad redder. Not brassy, not henna-ed, but definitely not my natural dark brown-to almost black natural color. I'm probably the only person who notices.
I wish I could buy this online, but I'll just have to deputize one of my friends to bring a bottle over on her next visit.
Excuse my American spelling....
Oh- there was a question in the poll afterwards that asked how my hair felt after using it. I couldn't find an answer that fit, so I tagged "Other." See comments from hairdresser above. It did not feel bouncier, but my hair is very short, so I don't want bouncy. It felt a tad thicker, but not powerless.
Wow, all these questions about a bottle of shampoo!
