    I love this product! I initially bought it because if the LACK of harmful and nasty ingredients in it. Then I noticed, and I have super long, straight hair, that it doesn't weigh my hair down and make it greasy!

    Great for everything except for color

    By Lhvoyles

    from Indiana

    Comments about SheaMoisture African Water Mint & Ginger Detox & Refresh Hair & Scalp Gentle Shampoo:

    Overall, this shampoo is great. Great smell and it leaves your hair clean without it feeling dry or stripped. I won't be using it anymore, though, because this stuff removed my semi-permanent hair dye like crazy. I see as much color wash down the drain with this as I saw when I used cheap clarifying shampoos to purposefully strip color.
    If you are looking to fade a semi-permanent hair color without the dryness caused by clarifying shampoo, this is the ticket. However, if you are looking to maintain your color as long as possible, this is not the shampoo for that.

    Best shampoo ever

    By Curlsxgloss

    from DMV

    Comments about SheaMoisture African Water Mint & Ginger Detox & Refresh Hair & Scalp Gentle Shampoo:

    I have a very hard time finding shampoos that thoroughly cleanse my hair without stripping it, but this makes my scalp feel squeaky clean and removes any product build up! I have extremely thick curly hair and I have no issues detangling after shampooing with this.

      Comments about SheaMoisture African Water Mint & Ginger Detox & Refresh Hair & Scalp Gentle Shampoo:

      I have been wanting to get this particular shampoo for awhile since I figure it would be a great alternative to a dandruff shampoo. I don't know why i didn't get this before I love it.
      Lathers super well and it leaves a minty fresh feeling on your scalp afterward.
      I use this 3 times a week to switch it up due to my dry scalp. I normally use the Curl and Shine by the same brand but I think when I run out of that one I am fully committing to this one. Love Love Love

          I have lots of fine, wavy hair. I also have a scalp that tends to get itchy. I need something that cleans thouroughly, doesn't dry my hair out, and doesnt way it down or leave it greasy. I also want something that relieves the scalp itch. This shampoo checks all those boxes! My hair and scalp feel amazing! I use this with the matching conditioner.

                    This is a great shampoo for cleansing your scalp deeply without drying it out since there are no sulfates in it. The smell is lovely, it's minty and fresh but not in a toothpaste way haha. My hair normally reeks of cigarettes because my SO is a chain-smoker but this shampoo keeps it smelling clean at least twice as long as the standard shampoo does.

                        I have really curly dry and frizzy hair and I live in a humid country. Would this shampoo be good for twice a week use? Should I be rinsing in warm/ cold water for best results? I have immense hair fall.would this shampoo help? Or do you suggest anything else? I want a shampoo that doesn't dry out my hair or promote hairfall..usually anti dandruff does that to me. I plan to use ginger and mint shampoo, sauve naturals conditioner, Shea Jamaican strengthening masque. Please advice. Want to have defined curls with no hairfall.
