Most Helpful Positive Review A must have for wavy/curly hair!
This paired with their conditioner are what hair product dreams are made of, they're the dynamic duo. Truly one of the best shampoo and conditioner I have ever used on my wavy unruly hair. Why? Because they actually work! Each time I've tried shampoo and conditioner targeted to wavy/curly hair in the past, I've seen zero difference between the "specialty" products and regular old shampoo and conditioner. After I shower and air dried with this duo, I saw a legitimate different in my hair. The waves were more even, my hair didn't feel as weighed down, and it was so shiny! It just felt healthy! It's a love for me! I received this product complimentary for testing purposes.
Most Helpful Critical Review Ehhh, it smells good but it's strippng!
The smell is great! And it lathers pretty well for a sulfate free product. However, at least on my hair, it was so stripping! I had to add another shampoo to add more moisture in my hair. The label stated that it was good for all natural hair types and colored hair, but I felt like it would be better just for all natural hair types and not colored hair. I have colored hair and I just felt like it stripped harder. I did notice that the shampoo and conditioner did add volume to my hair. It was easy to detangle as well, once the conditioner was added. Like I said, it's a great starter shampoo but may need to be mixed with another shampoo to add to it's cleansing of the hair. This is an honest opinion because I received the product for free for testing purposes.
Reviewed by 235 customers Did not work for me

For me this product really didn't work at all. A hair stylist recommended it to me and I gave it a real chance. But yeah it made my hair feel terrible. With curly hair most people don't brush it, and comb through it with their fingers in the shower. Something about this shampoo maybe my hair itself feel almost sticky and made running my fingers through it in the shower nearly impossible. My hair has never been so knotty since I was a kid as with trying to use this shampoo. And I'm sure you can do the math that this led to a lot more hair than normal coming out. Maybe this works good for some people but type 2cs who have hair that is thick and leans towards the dry side- I can not recommend this product. I just bought a new shampoo this week, and it was a big relief to use something that worked so much better
I like it
Merari from Valdosta Georgia
It leaves my hair soft. It has a nice neutral scent. I have wavy hair shoulder length type 2b.

I've been using this shampoo along with the conditioner now for about 2 weeks. I wish the brand offered more bottle sizes, because I have to use a lot for my thick, long, curly hair. Smell isn't bad. After using this product with the conditioner, my hair felt dry and left with an odd sticky film. Not a greasy film but like dry.. I can't even run my fingers through my hair. Brushing is a disaster.. I've kept using the product for so long in hopes things would get better but nothing has changed. I'm very disappointed because i've seen some good results with this product and i was really looking forward to falling in love with it.

Does Not Clean Well
Lblanks from North Carolina
The shampoo does not clean the scalp well. It does not lather much either and can cause a greasy film on the scalp.
Awful all around
wavydays from NH
Smell is old perfume and my hair was very dry after using it.
Emily from Houston
I started using NYM products since last year and its all I use now, great products overall.
Love this shampoo!
curly.girl.sam from Pennsylvania
I love everything about this shampoo! The color is gorgeous, the scent is delightful (but not overpowering), the lather is enough to make me happy but not so much that I'm drowning in bubbles, and it's got some protein in it! At $8, this is my go-to shampoo. HIGH recommend!
I'm loving it

I love the way it makes my hair feel and smell. I'm on the road to recovering my curls and I appreciate an affordable product that I can use long term.

Got my whole household using this line
Jesse.fbaby from Miami fl
Both my husband and kids have curly hair. I have noticed the difference in everyone's hair once they started using the curl talk line. The shampoo does not dry out your hair and it's easy to remove the suds. Love it!
The best shampoo
Kathia_ivelisse from Puerto Rico
This shampoo is excellent. After using it, your hair feels super clean and soft. Also, it has rice water, this is a plus! Lastly, the product goes a long way, with just a little it does its job.
Dianashleigh from Nashville, TN
Of all the sulfate free shampoo I've tried, I find this one to get my hair clean without being overly drying, but not too heavy either. I wash my hair every 3-4 days and I exercise 5 days a week, so there's plenty there for it to clean! Also, my head doesn't itch at all, and it relieves itchines from other shampoos.
heathersavobne from Tempe, AZ
I was recommended this product by a curl specialist at an Ulta Salon. Very affordable and makes my hair feel fresh and clean with no residue left behind.
My go to!
Gaga13 from Battle Ground, WA
This was my go to after I stopped using Deva curl and I have not noticed a change in my Curl pattern. Which is great considering that Deva curl is ridiculously expensive.
Tabby from Santa Rosa
Since Deva Curls little mishap I have been searching for another shampoo and conditioner that made my hair look and feel good. After trying a lot, I mean a lot of different shampoos I came across this line. This shampoo and conditioner makes my hair feel amazing, controls my frizz and keeps my curls light and bouncy. This shampoo and conditioner will remain one of stables.
Smells really good.
Maria R from Waukegan, IL
Leaves my hair really soft.
Mimi from My home
When i first put this product in my hair instantly it curled up and I've been trying to find a product that fit well for my hair and defined my curls with good ingredients and i must say this has definitely done it not your mothers will always be a favorite in my book
Don't use on color treated hair
MG from Claremont, NH
Just discovered it was this shampoo that kept fading my hair color. I figured it was safe for color treated hair because it was sulfate free, but it isn't.
Cynthia from Chicago ,Illinois
Left my hair very soft and smelling really good .
A staple shampoo
SS from Summerville SC
I'm worried this review might jinx, me but I really like this shampoo! Ive been through many many curly hair shampoos/products. I've spent money on high end curly hair lines that did not work. For many years. I was skeptical about this nym cult talk like because of the price. I was wrong. I washed and conditioned with the 3 in 1 conditioner from this line, and my hair is calmer than it's been in awhile. A long while. Reference: 3a, med density, high porosity.
Nancy F from Texas
I wish this came with a pump rather than a cap. I use the conditioner, and it is great. The shampoo cleans my hair and scalp without drying it. Good purchase!
Lexy from El Dorado, CA
I read that this shampoo was very strong so I began diluting it in a cup of water before pouring on my scalp but now I just put it directly onto my scalp. It works very good for a natural shampoo without over drying (has not caused me eczema) I've been using for just over 2 months now and I am happy to say it still works just as well for me as day 1. The smell is fantastic but not overpowering. I will definitely be buying more ..whenever it runs out (It lasts long)
Pass on this
rroofe from Batesville, AR
I was excited about this product line, since having curly hair can be hard to find good products and I had seen this reviewed by a lot of people. However, this was a fail. The shampoo did not do anything for my curls and did not clean my hair like it should. My hair looked greasy and flat while I used this product. I used over half the bottle to make sure to give it time to work and it didn't, threw the rest a way. Big waste of money.
Using all curl talk products- wavy to curly
Paulie from Minneapolis, Minnesota
I'm always looking for great product to boost my wavy hair to curly hair. As soon as I find something I like they discontinue it. I started with the hair gel and loved it so I bought the shampoo, conditioner, hair therapy, and cream. I've used the products for a month now and can tell I have curls and volume now. My husband ran out of shampoo so he used mine and didn't like it because it made his wavy hair curly. Did exactly what it's supposed to after one wash. I highly recommend it.
