    Comments about Wella Elements Renewing Shampoo:

    I don't have much experience with sulfate-free shampoos, so maybe this one is typical, but it's awful. Weird smell and hair feels more greasy after use than before. My hair basically never dried even by the end of the day. I should have tried it before buying two liters. I will try to give them away. I love the Wella red bottle, so I thought this would be similar. Nope.

        I only shampoo my hair every other day; it was getting very dry. After using this product, my hair has improved in its overall health. It looks soft, shiny and is very manageable.

            I feel like I have to use a lot of product just to cleanse my roots and then it doesn't spread well through the length of my hair. I initially chose this because I was looking for a product without parabens.

                  I have tried a lot of different shampoos. Drug store to salon quality. I have been using pureology for over 3 years. And while I love it! My hair started getting used to it and just wasn't cleaning effectively, so I was on the hunt for something else. What attracted me to this shampoo is the sulfate free aspect. I washed my hair, I have a lot of hair so I double shampooed, and it was clean! I could probably benefit from a clarifying shampoo as my hair goes through a lot! But regardless of this. I was very happy with how clean it felt and didn't leave my hair dry before conditioning, something that even pureology doesn't do! So I was impressed that this shampoo left my hair clean without the stripping feeling. I would highly recommend.

                    Love love this shampoo and have been using it for a couple years now. Its the best shampoo for not stripping your hair yet nourishing it through the shampoo process. I follow up with the matching conditioner and it makes my hair feel healthy afterwards.

                      I use it daily. Only after this shampoo and same brand conditioner I can comb my hair. All other shampoos make it a nest. I switched from HEMP brand shampoos to this one. I loved hemp(variety, colors, smells). This one is clear like liquid handsoap. Has very nice smell.
                      I have mask, conditioner and leave in conditioner. Love them all. Best for my hair.

                              Elements shampoo and condtioner are sulfate and paraben free. We do however suggest using the same brand of shampoo and condtioner as the smoothing treatment you used to ensure results.

                              It is a very small amount, so it shouldn't cause any adverse effect. It is within the formula to help eliminate product buildup. :-)

                              Wella Elements Renewing Shampoo does not alter hair's natural texture, so you won't lose your curls. Wella makes no claims regarding hair fall.
