Most Helpful Positive Review Best for my oily hair and scalp!
Let me just start off by saying that I have type 2a to 2b, very oily, thick hair. I have tried so many hair care products from Cantu or SheaMoisture to DevaCurl but nothing could help my hair keep its waves for more than a day. I have such an oily scalp that I would need to clean my hair everyday just to keep the oils away from my face (since I also have sensitive skin). I do follow the Curly Girl Method type videos and found out about this new line. I liked the price for the collection so I bought the entire line. After the first use I fell in love!! I was so happy! My scalp has never felt so clean and my waves feel so lightweight! The second day is where I determine if it truly does control my oily hair and it did! I was so surprised! The waves were still there and lightweight! It didn't affect my skin either. I did, however had to wash my hair the third day. I no longer have to wash my hair everyday! A little does go a long way so start off with a pump first. If I had to say anything bad about it, it would be that the shampoo can make your hair a tad bit rough ( I guess because it thoroughly cleans the hair), but after using the conditioner it brings your hair life!
Most Helpful Critical Review DONT BUY THIS!!!
I should have listened to the other negative reviews, this took all of the moisture out of my hair after only one wash. I bought the shampoo and conditioner. It instantly dried my scalp out it felt like a chemical burn. I had just got my hair cut about 4 weeks prior and this caused split ends, I don't dye my hair or use any heat or product aside from weightless oil for more moisture and shine. This created frizz and fray. It claims to be 98% natural but this is a harsh shampoo and the conditioner didn't condition at all...I got my hair somewhat back to what it was after trimming off split ends and using Matrix so long damage shampoo and Paul Mitchell's the detangler conditioner

I have used other Not Your Mother's products and loved them so I decided to give this one a try. Terrible decision, this dried my hair out so badly and my hair was always knotted. I didn't finish the bottle and threw it out.
i like it
GreenEyedGirl from Raleigh, NC
not heavily fragranced, moisturizing enough that allows me to comb my hair and not tangle. I have 2b/c curly hair and use this to prevent product buildup

I recently just purchased this and fell in love. From dying my hair too often this summer
This product has made a huge impact on my hair.
Alex from LA, Ca
I actually bought this shampoo and conditioner for my daughter. She picked it out and one day, I decided to use just the shampoo without any conditioner. I do have curly hair and this made my hair so soft. Normally, I have to have conditioner, but I really wanted to clean my hair of all products and I couldn't believe how soft my hair was with only using this shampoo. It didn't make my hair frizzy or anything. I would recommend it and I might try the curl shampoo from this brand.
Thoroughly cleaned my hair
Theresa from Phoenix, AZ
I used this with the Not Your Mom's scalp scrub pre-wash on my wash day and it completely removed the build up from my hair. I did not follow with the conditioner but used my own because the shampoo makes your hair feel a tad dry afterwards. I also washed both my girls' (one straight, the other curly) and it left everyone's hair soft and completely reset of all the gunk. I'm glad I made this purchase.
Eliminates scalp itch

I have oily hair and tend to get itchy scalp. This solves both issues and my gray hair glistens after each shampoo. Agree w comments about packaging-pump doesn't work.

Had a bad allergic reaction after one use.

I have used this shampoo for a few months now and really like it. I use it nearly everyday along with conditioner and don't have a problem with it drying out my hair or scalp. My hair is naturally wavy and not oily.
Appreciate the packaging
Max from PA
A few quick pumps of this gives me hair that shines in the moonlight. Like magic, I was able to effortlessly dispense product down to the very bottom.
Brii from California
I love this shampoo and conditioner combo! It leaves my hair smelling amazing and soft and shiny! Love it!
Kelsey from Alabama
Bought this to restore remove build up since I haven't been able to go see my hair stylist during COVID19. This made my hair 10x WORSE! It dried out my hair and scalp to the point it was so knotted even after conditioning. Damaged my hair so bad and hair fall out like crazy. Worst shampoo ever!! But smells good.
Reese from Honolulu
I bought this with the conditioner to clarify my hair with. It stripped everything out of my hair, including the moisture. My loose 2c waves ended up as a huge poof of frizz with no definition, even after adding a leave-in conditioner, pure argan oil, and stying product. For my next wash I switched back to my usual shampoo and conditioner and my curl definition and pattern came back, so itʻs definitely this set thatʻs the problem!
Abbi from USA
This shampoo cleans my hair without striping it, reduces oil, does not dry my scalp out, and does not give me knots or frizz. Using the scrub and conditioner with this product is a 10/10. But even by itself the product works really well and does lift impurities from the scalp (product build up etc).
Liz from Sarasota, Florida
This shampoo is awful! It left my hair so knotted I couldn't even get a comb through it. I just can't even describe how it made my hair feel . . . maybe like a brillo pad. I love all the other Not Your Mother's products but this one was awful!!
Not my favorite.
Val from Texas
I thought I would like this since my hair would get oily really fast and the reviews were pretty good. That's not the case. It leaves my hair so clean that it feels dry and brittle. I have noticed my hair falling out a lot when I use this specific shampoo. The worst part is that it takes forever to finish (I feel bad wasting it) I've literally had this since November (now April) and I'm very over it. Even if you pump out generously you barely make a dent into the shampoo. I don't recommend this if you hate the feeling of having dry hair.
Livi from Chicago,IL
This shampoo lathered quite a bit, when I rinsed out however it left my hair SQUEAKY clean. I strongly hate that, I could literally feel the squeakyness as I tried to rinse the product out. It did not strip my scalp which is why i gave it 3 stars, but the squeakyness shookith me. The fragrance was not too strong (I have sensitive skin) but it smelled more fruity than like perfume. I definitely felt I needed a conditioner after using this though.
My scalp feels revived.
SaraB from Tennessee
I have wavy hair, so I only use shampoo about once or twice a week. I regularly co wash my hair but after a while, I've started noticing build up on my scalp and product buildup in my hair. I bought this hoping it could be my weekly shampoo, and all the buildup on my scalp and hair is completely gone. I definitely wouldn't suggest using this daily, however, bc it IS a CLARIFYING shampoo.
Isn't it supposed to make your scalp less oily?
Lele from New Jersey
An ULTA employee recommended this product to me. I LOVED the smell of it, but it didn't actually clarify my hair. Every time I used it, it made my hair greasier than it was before. My hair has 2B waves and the ends have bleach from coloring my hair. I read that you have to try it a couple of times so that your hair gets accustomed, but I did that and I still ended up with SUPER GREASY roots and really dry ends. This product was really disappointing for me.
Jayz from Ny
I don't use this and the conditioner very often , I use it when I go away for a couple of days but this gives me weird dandruff looking specks in my scalp? I don't know why. I have another NYM Shampoo and conditioner at home that I've also taken with me for my trips and it doesn't do that.
I love it!
Tata from Savannah, ga
This made my hair look healthy and shiny again like it was when I was 21. I've gotten so many compliments and more important my husband even noticed the difference. I love it!
ayerica from mn
I have suffered from a dandruff while having the most oily scalp ever. The weirdest and hardest combination ever because you can never find the perfect shampoo and let me tell you i did! I would always have to wash my hair every single day or it would be a grease ball. This shampoo let's me go every other day, it is a tad drying which makes me a little frizzy so i would not recommend if you have a dry scalp or using everyday. I do a hair mask once a week to help combat the frizz, and using a very hydrating conditioner and it's a wonderful combo! :)
Made me break out
Liz from Alabama
Finally realized that this is what was causing my breakouts after changing to a new shampoo for 1 week and noticing my skin was clear. It caused painful pimples on my forehead and hairline. Avoid at all costs.
Wonderful product for managing dandruff
Iz99 from Holland Michigan
I use this product to manage my dandruff problem and it works amazing! I have never found a product before this one that keeps my dandruff away without causing my curly hair to get extremely frizzy. Will use this shampoo forever.
Josie from Kingston NY
Smells great, pump on either shampoo and conditioner don't work. Some how managed to bring a little life back to my hair but now I have an issue of my hair being SUPER brittle and constantly tangled with every movement.
Kendall from Porterville, CA
I love the smell of all three products in this line, however, when I used the hair mask, it left a nasty residue in my hair that the shampoo would not remove. (Needless to say, I DO NOT use that hair mask.) If I use both the shampoo and conditioner, my hair is super greasy within a couple of hours. If I just use the shampoo, then it seems to work. By using the shampoo alone, my hair feels very soft, but I don't think it's worth the money.
