Most Helpful Positive Review Remarkably impressed with a great shampoo!
Thanks to the Stellar Product Testing Panel for providing me with the John Frieda Haircare Detox & Repair Shampoo! After being a bit wary about trying out this shampoo, I was very impressed with the results. I have very fine, thin hair, and I only used volumizing shampoo and conditioner. I need all the help I can get when it comes to giving my hair any ounce of volume.
The John Frieda Haircare Detox & Repair Shampoo that the Stellar Product Testing Company sent me claims it helps transform your hair to look smooth and full of shine. The word "smooth" is what scared me because, to me, smooth means straight and sleek. Was I wrong!
From the first time I washed my hair with this shampoo, I instantly felt how it made my hair feel soft. It lathered nicely, and it actually felt fresh! It has avocado oil and green tea, and it smells very good too! I followed my shampooing with the John Frieda Haircare Detox & Repair Conditioner.
I have been using volumizing shampoo/conditioner for as long as I can remember. Whenever I get out of the shower, I instantly feel my hair knotty and I need to run a comb thru it immediately before it dries. The John Frieda Haircare Detox & Repair Shampoo, did not make my hair knotty at all! My hair stayed smooth and sleek after towel drying! I was able to let it air dry after that without ever having to run a comb thru it! Having to eliminate this step has been great. Any extra time, as a mom, is great!
I have used this shampoo daily from the day I received it, and in just 10 days, there is a noticeable difference (see attached pictures). My hair looks so much healthier now than it ever did! It was very easy to add to my everyday shower routine. One day, I accidentally used my usual shampoo, and it's unbelievable how I instantly knew I had grabbed the wrong shampoo. My hair felt dry, knotty, and it did not lather like John Frieda. I quickly washed it out and used the John Freida Haircare Detox & Repair shampoo, and it instantaneously felt better!
I really loved this shampoo, and paired with the conditioner, it feels refreshing and amazing! I would most definitely purchase this shampoo and continue using it! Thank you, Stellar Product Testing Panel, for providing me with the John Frieda Haircare Detox & Repair Shampoo and giving my hair the extra care it needs. This is one great product!
Most Helpful Critical Review I was hoping for more from this shampoo
I should start off by saying that my hair is the bane of my existence. I used to have long, lush locks prior to having kids and now I have limp, thin strands. Because of this, my hair often looks stringy and greasy, hence why I was excited that Stellar Product Panel provided this product for me to try.
Upon receiving this product, the first thing I noticed was the packaging. While the bright green packaging does make it stand out, I felt that the green was not pleasing to the eye. However, when I opened the bottle, the scent of the product was super pleasing. That is a big item that I notice with shampoos and often will help me decide which products I purchase.
I was able to use the shampoo about 6-7 times prior to reviewing it. I try to wash my hair every other day, but with this shampoo I tried to wash it at least daily to see what the results were. I did notice that my hair did seem more vibrant and less greasy overall. I did find the shampoo texture itself to be pretty runny and also that it didn't suds up as much as other shampoos that I have used. I do think that this could easily be added to my routine, but I am not sure that this is a product I would purchase again. It would probably depend on the price point.
All in all, the pleasing smell and the slight change in my overall hair texture is enough to give this three stars, but given what I know of this brand of product, I did expect for the shampoo to feel more luxurious and less watery.

I received this yesterday from ulta online. It is amazing! I wish it came in a bigger bottle! Makes your hair feel wonderful and it cleans it so good! I used the shampoo, conditioner and also the leave in spray. Thank you John Frieda ❤❤
Charlieee from Jacksonville, FL
I received this product to try through the Stellar Product Testing Panel. This shampoo is okay - it smells great and moisturizes but sulfates are at the top of the ingredients list and in this day of being able to find so many products in the same price range that perform well without the use of sulfates, it's a little disappointing. It also contains silicones so if you're trying to avoid those ingredients, this may be a deal breaker. I'm not so sure on the "detox" claims... I don't think I experienced anything different from that aspect but I do think it wasn't drying and cleansed my hair well. Since it was so moisturizing , those with fine hair may find it too heavy and weigh down the hair - I found that although my fine wavy hair wasn't lifeless, I did find my hair a little flatter than normal. Overall I would use it again but would likely not purchase it.
Silky, Smooth and Smelling Good!
MamaNichol2016 from Green Bay, WI
Over the last 4 years, my hair chemistry has changed drastically thanks to all of the hormones related to having babies! My two beautiful boys have left me with not so beautiful looking or feeling hair, even though it's been dyed a pretty color. I would wash my hair and it didn't even feel like I washed it because of whatever product and oil build up I had, it was embarrassing! I've been trying to stick to a regime of washing my hair every 2-3 days to help preserve my hair color. So I've been on the hunt for a product that will allow me to keep to that schedule and still have my hair feeling great.
In January, I received this shampoo to try as part of the Stellar Product Testing Panel and it's been a game changer for my hair! I shampoo my hair two to three times a week. My hair today looks more healthy and it's smooth than it did a month ago. It's shiny, but not because of oil! Not only does my hair look great, but it smells amazing too! I definitely will continue to use this is as part of my hair care routine.
Bianchi74 from Montery CA
I love this shampoo and conditioner! I've been through so many other brands after my favorite was discontinued and came across this and I have to say I love it more than the other discontinued brand. The smell is great and my hair is soft and silky.... even at the end of my hair does not feel greasy unlike how others leave my hair.
lesleys11 from Milwaukee, WI
I typically stick to my preferred shampoo and conditioner, but noticed my hair was feeling frizzy and dry. I was excited to try the John Frieda Haircare Detox & Repair Care & Protect Shampoo and Conditioner to try and bring life back to my hair without going to the salon. After my first time using the shampoo and conditioner my hair instantly (yes, instantly in the shower!) felt silky and smooth. The smell was very relaxing and I really enjoyed it. After washing my hair with these products, I did not have any trouble combing through my hair like I typically do. My hair stayed soft and smooth until my next wash. I used these products at least twice a week to "detox" my hair. It was a pretty simple way to make my hair feel shiny and great. I would definitely buy these again! I received these products through the Stellar Product Testing Panel.
Finally a product that does what it says!!
Jackie0230 from Fort Worth, TX
Hands down the best shampoo I've ever had! I've used all kinds of shampoo product and none of them have worked out for me they would leave my hair really oily and I couldn't even style it before it felling super nasty and staticy. Not to forget John Frieda Haircare Detox & Repair Shampoo has helped me out a lot with my itchy scalp somehow I don't have dandruff which I'm really happy about because I have suffered from it for 2 years, I would always be really embarrassed about it and the smell of the shampoo is amazing, also it makes you feel refreshing after having it on! I've been using it for a little over a week now and it's been life changing I wish I would of known about this product along time ago it has changed my hair for the better! I will for sure order another one before i run out of it! I want to thank the stellar product testing panel for sending me this great shampoo that I have even told my family members about so they can order it too and have amazing hair like I do now!
okay but not great
JessiKate from New York
I was given this shampoo to try as part of the Stellar Product Testing Panel. My initial impression of the John Frieda Haircare Detox & Repair Shampoo was the bottle was visually pleasing. The simple design with earthy green tones matched their 'detox' advertised purpose. That being said, I was surprised how perfumey and chemically it smelled. I expected a light, natural scent, especially with the avocado and green tea listed.
In using it, it was less sudsy than my usual shampoo and required more to get complete coverage of my thick, wavy, shoulder length hair. My hair did have a clean feeling afterwards.
As a curly haired girl, I tend to wash my hair 1-2 times a week. After using the shampoo, I did not see or notice a difference, even after 6 washes. I honestly expected more out of the John Frieda Shampoo, it usually higher ended and more expensive than I usually buy. I would not purchase this shampoo.
Casey M from Maryville, TN
I received a free sample of this from the Stellar Product Testing Panel. I honestly was not impressed with it. There was nothing special about it that made it stand out which is pretty disappointing considering how much I liked the conditioner. I probably would buy this, but only to match the scent of the conditioner.
gorgeous smell and great results
annag from Boulder, CO
I swapped out my usual shampoo for this a couple of weeks ago and have been using it two or three times a week. My first impression was really positive, I love the scent and the packaging is attractive, I know not everyone cares about what the bottle looks like, but I like my bathroom to look cute and I'm always more excited to use a product if the packaging feels good in my hand, the color of the bottle (green) is pretty, and the label looks chic. Beyond the look, the shampoo works really well, my hair is shiny and soft and feels super refreshed. I think you should try it especially if you've been using a ton of products and you're starting to get that brittle look and feel. Thanks to the Stellar Product Testing Panel for sending me this shampoo to try.
Sishelley from Madison, Wisconsin
I received this product from the stellar product testing panel, and my hair is thanking me! I had my 3rd baby 7 months ago, and ever since I feel like my hair has been dull, and breaking a lot more. I started using this as soon as it arrived every other day and noticed that within days my scalp felt way less dry and my hair looked shinier. I even let it air dry a few times and it dried so nicely (normally my hair is so frizzy and my scalp super dry when I do that). I'm excited to keep using this product on my hair, and am so pleased with how it really rejuvenated it. It's been about 2 weeks, and I'm loving the outcome!
Not for My Hair Type
TheMorrighan from Baltimore, MD
I really liked the smell of this shampoo. It was a nice subtle scent and didn't have a heavy chemical scent to it. I have thicker hair but it did not take a lot to wash my hair, producing a nice lather. After my hair had dried, my hair felt clean and smoother. I have had it for a little over a week now, and have used it 4 times.
However, the downside for me is that my hair is very picky about what I use on it. Sadly this product did not work well with my hair type. It caused my hair to become greasy a lot quicker than I typically experience. I may need to use it as a complement to other shampoos perhaps once every other week or so. Hopefully it works better on other hair types, but mine is not one of them. I would likely not purchase this in the future.

Saved my dry winter hair
Mallie18 from Denver, CO
I began using the John Frieda Haircare Detox & Repair Shampoo after coming home from a winter vacation in the mountains on a ski trip. My hair took a beating in the dry, cold climate and I was prepared to have to get a few inches cut from my hair to even salvage the dry, frizz that was covering the top of my head. But after receiving this product from the Stellar Product Testing Panel, I immediately broke the seal of this Shampoo and put it to work my first day home. Instantly after the shower my hair felt smoother and tamer. I decide to give it 3 more washes before I booked my hair appointment because I am desperately trying to grow out my hair for some spring time weddings and events I have coming. By using both the shampoo and the conditioner together, I can honestly say my hair looks much silkier, calmed my frizz completely and I don't feel the need to cut any amount of hair. It really has restored my hair. I am now wanting to look into more John Frieda products I was that impressed with the Detox & Repair shampoo!
Pilotwife5 from Lehi, UT
I didn't know what to expect with this shampoo, but after using it once I was hooked! The smell was pleasant, it was easy to lather through my hair, and easy on my scalp. My scalp felt refreshed and clean, and didn't feel dry or right. My hair was exceptionally clean and there was no buildup- in fact I am pretty sure it cleaned up any buildup that was there, which usually only happens for me with ACV! With later uses throughout the week, I found the same results and it was especially great after a sweaty workout. My hair felt clean and soft, and the ends didn't feel brittle! Great job John Frieda! I'm impressed and will definitely be recommending this shampoo and buying it in the future! I received this product through the Stellar Product Testing Panel to review!
Fresh & Clean
H Finn from New York
There are a lot of options when it comes to hair care products and it can be so overwhelming trying to decide on which brand or style to go with. This time around I didn't have to choose. I was given the opportunity to test the Detox & Repair Shampoo & Conditioner from Stellar Product Testing Panel!!
I have pretty much always been low maintenance when it comes to my fine, curly, frizzy, brown, shoulder length, pony tail wearing, hair regimne. As I inch closer to the 40 mark things have gotten a bit more complicated in this department! The grays are multiplying, which then leads to more frequent dyes and coloring and damage, on my already fragile locks. I've used these products two times thus far & I am very pleased with the results. The shampoo left my hair feeling clean and smooth, not dry or slick which I admire. The conditioner, which for me is most essential, is GOOD stuff! I left it on for 1-2 minutes, rinsed and finished up my shower. As my hair air dried it felt soft & curly versus the normal instant frizz mop. I used a small amount of anti-frizz / heat protection serum & started up the blowdryer. I had gone to my cousins baby shower along with my 4 year old daughter & other family. The results, my hair had a dash of volume, it felt smooth & light & stayed that way ALL day long, despite mother natures' rain, snow & wind. My sister in law was impressed that I didn't go with my normal ponytail do & complimented my lovely locks. She is a tough critic! I will continue to use the Detox & Repair products & look forward to trying their other goods! Try It!!
Silky and smooth
Scwhite83 from Columbus,Ohio
I received this product to try out from the stellar product testing panel. I can't comment on how it works alone as I used this with the conditioner but it feels super silky right out of the bottle. It washes nicely and I didn't feel like there was any residue left behind sometimes with heavier shampoos. My hair overall felt much smoother and more controllable. My normal hair texture is pretty coarse, thick and pretty straight. It coated my strands really well without having to use a ton either. My only complaint would be the smell is a little strong for me. It's not bad but I prefer lighter scents. Overall a nice shampoo.
Amazing Shampoo for Dry Hair
npappas from undisclosed
The John Frieda Haircare Detox & Repair Shampoo was amazing for my dry hair. After only one use my hair was softer, and I couldn't stop running my hands through it. I used the shampoo every other day for a week.The first picture was taken prior to using the shampoo, and the second picture is the end result. This is definitely a shampoo I would purchase in the future. Thanks to the Stellar Product Testing Panel for providing me with this shampoo.
elusiveshoe from Oklahoma City, OK
I was able to try the John Frieda Haircare Detox & Repair Shampoo. After just one use, my hair was noticeably softer than with my previous shampoo, requiring minimal, if any, product to style my hair. After a couple days of use, I no longer needed additional products with the exception of rainy/high humidity days. It was an easy swap into my daily routine and left my hair not only feeling softer and stronger but had a nice subtle smell that was very pleasant.
Thank you to the Stellar Product Testing Panel for the ability to try out this John Frieda Haircare Detox & Repair Shampoo.
Good repairing shampoo
Bktemp28 from Tucson, AZ
I used this product with its counterpart for about two weeks now. Results were pretty quick for me. My hair was less tangled and more smooth after the very first wash. My hair is very particular about product, so using this product more than twice a week actually makes my hair look greasy. This is not a downside in my opinion unless you are hoping to use this daily. It has a good oil content to repair hair damage which is what it is for. The scent is very subtle and likeable. Overall I would definately continue to use and purchase this in the future. I did receive this product for free to review as part of the stellar product testing panel, but my thoughts and experiences are my own.
Wonderful smell, ok results
Lucky11too from CA
Thanks to the Stellar Product Testing Panel, I was able to try out John Frieda Haircare Detox & Repair Shampoo. I enjoyed the smell of the shampoo, but I didn't prefer that it contains sulfates (personal preference). It also doesn't lather much, so I feft like I had to use a lot on my medium length hair to feel clean. Overall, my hair felt fresh and clean at the end, but I don't think I will be changing shampoos.
Kaebellasmom13 from New Hampshire
I've been on the hunt for something that really cleans my hair without weighing it down, and feeling brassy or even greasy since I have thick hair often products make my hair feel awful and this truly made it feel soft and clean and I'm very impressed with it. A little really goes a long way and the smell is amazing. Definitely will get more and share to those around me!
I recieved this product through Stellar Product Testing Panel, regardless all thoughts are my own.
A+ on the repair care
Melissw1981 from Aurora, IL
The John Frieda Haircare Detox & Repair Shampoo really came through on the promise to provide repair care for my hair! I have very long hair (down to my waist) and it is overdue for a cut. I used the shampoo with the sister conditioner. I could tell the shampoo really cleaned the build-up in my hair and the combination definitely helped make hair look and feel soft & smooth. Even on the days I used my usual shampoo & conditioner, my hair still was softer. I will still use my usual brand of shampoo & conditioner because I prefer to use one made for blonde hair most days. However, I will most definitely incorporate the John Frieda Haircare Detox & Repair shampoo & conditioner into my routine 1-2 times a week.

This shampoo is amazing. I used it daily along with the conditioner. Noticed a difference in my hair within the first few uses. It felt healthier, shinier and fuller. I did receive this product thru the stellar product testing panel and will continue to buy the product in the future.
No Hype - Does What It Says!
CCrewMommy from Massachusetts
Thank you to Stellar Product Testing Panel for allowing me to test this shampoo and conditioner at no cost to me!
I am a mom of many, I have zero time for myself. My makeup gets put on in the car and I haven't known fashion since I was a teenager. It's okay, this is who I want to be right now, but I have to remind myself that self care is important. This new John Frieda Detox & Repair Care & Protect Conditioner has been a lovely addition to my hectic routine. I don't have a ton of care products in my shower, I have three bottles only, body wash and my shampoo and conditioner. These bottles have taken their stance and my normal hair bottles have been put away. At first I wasn't impressed with them to be honest, after my shower I was able to brush my hair as usual and move on with my day. It wasn't until this morning I touched my hair and took pause, it was so soft! We were rushing out the door and I had to brush through my hair while on the go. I left the house with a comb instead of my usual brush and I was able to comb my hair, completely one handed in about two minutes. I was completely shocked and this conditioner may be my new bff.
The scent is very similar to my husband's body wash with a bit heavier citrus kick, not what I would normally want to smell myself. This is the only area I find that could be adjusted. Surprisingly, it leaves no lingering scent once your hair is dry. My husband gave this a try and was shocked at how soft his hair was but with no residue or hint of oil. I think I'll be having to buy this twice as much as I was expecting as I won't be the only one using it!
Julie C from NC
I received this product through the Stellar Product Testing Panel in exchange for my honest feedback. I have very fine hair and was quite skeptical about using this product. "Detox" shampoos/conditioners I've used in the past have always left my hair feeling coarse, but this product was totally different! I used it in combination with the John Frieda Detox & Repair conditioner and my hair was left softer than ever! It also smells wonderful.
Makes my hair feel great
AmyD from Cincinnati, OH
This shampoo smells great and leaves my hair feeling soft and smooth. My hair is generally frizzy and dry, but I found that after using this shampoo my hair looks much shinier and I don't have to deal with all of the fly-aways.
