Most Helpful Positive Review Excellent
I have not had this shampoo long enough to claim it helps decrease hair fall out, but I can tell you it fixed a scalp issues I never thought I had and my hair looks, at least on the surface, more healthy. My scalp I would be tight sometimes or itchy, but I did not have dandruff. This fixed that in a few shampoos.
I do use in conjunction with the Healing Conditioner which is fantastic and made my hair look better the first time I used it.
I do not mind the rosemary scent of the shampoo, it does not linger on the hair.
The conditioner has a vanilla lavender scent which I do find really pleasing.
If there was a draw back, you need to let the shampoo sit on your scalp, I dont really have a problem with this. It is only 2 minutes.
I am using this system with Rogaine and I do have a ton of regrowth. I think time is key, you need to give it a few months trial.
Most Helpful Critical Review I wouldn't purchase again
I had high hopes for this shampoo but I was left disappointed. It does have a medicine smell to it but it's not too overwhelming. Does not lather easily, sometimes I felt I was pumping out too much product for it to start lathering up. Do keep in mind it pumps out a very small amount of product at a time. I tried this shampoo for 3 months. It made my hair fall out much more than before I started using it. My scalp was also more dryer and dandruff prone. My hair never felt 100% clean. However, I love the conditioner. Smells so delightful.

Samantha from Los Angeles
I've been losing my thick hair due to a combination of age and bleach. Age is causing thinning at the scalp and bleaching my hair to attain my purple color has made it dry and breakage is out of control. The bald patches are what worries me the most. I searched a lot of products before trying this due to the bulk of natural ingredients. It's a very natural, herbal smelling shampoo, I can smell a bit of rosemary, and the smell doesn't bother me one bit. It's not a perfumey flower bomb which is a welcome change. The consistency surprised me. It's very liquidy and thinner than most shampoos, and it doesn't later well. That changed as soon as I incorporated one of those silicone scalp massagers, with the pointy, nubby tips. I apply the shampoo, rub in a bit and then let the scalp massager do the work. Creates a decent lather on my scalp this way. It rinses clean but definitely needs conditioner to smooth it out and detangle. I've only been using this for a month, so about 6-7 washes (I wash my hair about once a week) and it's already working! I comb my hair in the shower while it's wet while conditioner soaks in and I've seen a huge reduction in shedding. I was combing out clumps of hair every time I washed, but my last shampoo, barely any hair fell out. It was a huge relief and surprise to find this working so quickly. I haven't noticed any regrowth in this short time, but the fact that I'm shedding less is amazing. Also it does NOT strip the purple dye from my hair! It really is color safe. I've been using another conditioner brand but will buy the Hair Thinning conditioner soon to see if I get better results. So while I can't comment on regrowth, it's already saving my hair from excess breakage and shedding. No more clumps clogging the drain! Let it sit for 2-3 minutes too. I hope this helps someone that shares my hair issues.
The Best Shampoo!
Silverado from Conroe, Texas
I found out about this product when my hair was falling out and had been for awhile. I had been to many doctors and none could figure out what was going on and what was causing the hair to fall out. I had always had thick hair up until 4 years ago when all of a sudden l started seeing it fall out in the shower. I was devastated. I started calling my doctors to see if it was my medications but they said nothing changed. Then we thought maybe age but that quick ??? Then l had tests done on my blood ----- many tests!! Nothing. So l found out about this and thought l would give it a try .
It has been really great. The shampoo and conditioner has made my hair feel shiny, silky, and it does keep the hair from falling out.
I also use the elixir and it makes my hair feel so much thicker. If you have thin hair and it is falling out please give this a try. I have been using it awhile now and l really like it. I had mentioned the shampoo has a smell but not that bad. Once you rinse it out and use the conditioner ( that smells really good ) you don't notice it.

This shampoo has filled in my little bald spots I was getting near my temples. Each side had about a quarter sized spot and now they are gone ! Also my hair has it's natural wave back. I love what this shampoo has done for my hair. The only "bad" thing is that it grows so fast. I have to go get my color touched up every 4 weeks now.
Not the same consistency
BB from Charlestown, IN
I had bought this in a supermarket and it did wonders for my hair growth, so I ordered it again from Ulta. What I got from Ulta does not lather the same - It comes out much thinner than it should, and it actually lathers really well -- Unlike the product I had bought in the store, which was thicker and did not lather, but greatly improved my hair. The bottle I got from Ulta was also missing a piece around the pump. I think I got ripped off and got a fake product?
No, in fact I'm returning it.
Chavacano from Chicago
I used it like a regular shampoo. But the results compared to other shampoos in its category were not at all what I would expect from a shampoo this expensive.
S from Nashville
My hair is very dry, thin, and curly. This did not engage my natural curl but it has made my hair so soft and manageable. It has a earthy almost mint like smell but it's not strong and doesn't last on me. I have noticed less thinning but I would use this regardless bc of how it's made my hair feel. Been using around 3 weeks.
GGamba from Staten Island
it has a earthly smell but it doesn't lather well. I have been using it for 3 weeks now and I have not notices anything different. But the instructions does states it takes 3 months to see the difference.
So far so good
TWeidman from PA
So far I really like this product. I've only used it a few times and my hair feels amazing and already feels stronger and healthier.
Had to Discontinue Use Due to Allergy
Brittany from Columbus, Ohio
I wash my hair every other day. The first day I used this, I immediately liked the smell, but noticed it doesn't lather well. I live in Ohio and have pretty hard water so that probably affects it somewhat. Because it didn't lather well, I had to use three pumps to really feel like I was getting anywhere. Despite this, I was pleased with the result after I finished blow-drying.
Unfortunately, I noticed later that day that my scalp was definitely burning in certain areas. I thought maybe it was my imagination because I knew I was using something new. So, I figured I would try it again. It didn't burn on my day in between washes, so I thought maybe I'd be okay.
I used it again on wash day, and was actually even more impressed with the results I saw after blow-dry. So much shine! I haven't seen that much shine in a while.
But, here we went again...about three hours after my shower, my scalp started to burn, itch, and feel strange. It almost felt like it was crawling - just weird. I'm putting my money on it being the cedar oil. I know that I've previously had an issue being around cedar trees in Austin, TX, but that didn't hit me when I was reading the ingredients pre-purchase. So, user beware - if you've ever experienced "cedar fever" you may want to skip this product! Or, buy it and do a small patch test on your arm first.
I'm bummed that I didn't get to continue use of this product to see how it would turn out after using it for weeks or months, so I'm still rating it as yes I would recommend! I will say, that Ulta was awesome about returning this with zero hassle, so thank you for that!
I'd give this zero stars if I could!
Andrea J from PA
This is quite possibly the worst thinning shampoo I have ever used. I used up the bottle and realized how horrible the texture of my hair had become. Lots more hair loss and breakage. This is definitely NOT for colored hair! Back to Nioxin.
Love this shampoo & conditioner!
EGM from Amelia Island
My hair was thinning since becoming allergic to wheat. Since it is gluten free I thought I'd give it a try. My hair seems to be getting thicker and dry since using it.
Worked for me
AorryAri from Georgia
I bought this for my fine hair that feels like it's constantly shedding. I love it! My hair looks shinier, smells great and I've noticed that the shedding seems so much better. This Shampoo and Conditioner Set is well worth the cost!
Mom of two from Minneapolis
I've been using this for about a week and have noticed a nice soft shine to my hair. I don't seem to have as much loose hair in my brush when I get ready in the am. Happy with my purchase.

Best smelling shampoo for hair thinning
Lrs from Louisiana
Since I started using this shampoo, I have noticed less of my hair falling out. It smells great and my hair hair feels so soft and manageable.
Kris from Trenton, NC
I have been using this product for about a week now and have seen a difference. It seems to strengthen and nourish the hair. I love using products that don't contain as many bad ingredients. I can also say that I don't see as much hair loss in the shower/blow drying.
misty103 from North Carolina
The Hair Thinning Therapy Shampoo had a sort of fresh scent to it which I personally liked. It did not have a ton of lather, but many of the higher quality shampoos don't so this was not a big surprise for me. It has been working wonderfully to help restore my hair to its previous thickness.
Helps with hair loss and smells great!
Michelle from San Diego
I have been looking for products to help my hair grow and I'm so happy I ran across this..I have baby fine blond thinning hair and have tried many product but they tend to weight my hair down. but this Shampoo helps so much my hair is now softer and thicker. I swear by it I can't thank you enough
Turned hair green & gave me terrible dandruff
Adri from Massachusetts
The shampoo doesn't lather unless you use a ton, its like water. It ended up turning my little dead pieces of hair green (like split ends) and it gave me terrible dandruff which i've never had before.
Great shampoo for thinning hair
calilife from Long Beach, CA
There's a lot of shampoo in the bottle, so it's a good value for the money. The shampoo has natural ingredients, which is very important for me. I have thinning hair and I noticed that it got stronger after using this shampoo. It feels good when I rub it into my hair and it has a nice smell of pine trees. It's now part of my hair regimen.
Husband saw hair loss
DbcNY from New york
My husband used for a month and saw hair thinning/loss. He was using it as a prevantative and has thick hair.
I Tried and Tried. But THE WORST!! DO NOT USE WITH FINE HAIR
Judi from Milwaukee, WI
STAY AWAY IF YOU HAVE FINE HAIR!!!!! I gave it a chance-months of a chance. It cut down a little on the hair I was loosing in the shower. So I kept using it. As I continued to use, the trade off was dried out frizzy hair and a HORRIBLE case of dried itchy scalp. I have stick straight hair, so frizziness is not something I have had before. And now my scalp has sores on it that won't go away. A month after using the damage is still here. Gonna take forever to grow out. Or it will all fall out and I'll be bald! :( *****TRY ANOTHER PRODUCT!!! *****
