Most Helpful Positive Review Review from Mixed Race Chick with Keratin Treated Hair
I have very thick hair. To put that into perspective, when my natural hair is untreated it is about chin length. I go for a deep condition and blow-out and it take two stylists, who know what they are doing, four hours to blow out and flat iron my hair. By the time they are done, my hair is half way down my back. One of the guys was sweating at the end. I got a weave once and the stylist said "JESUS YOU GOT SOME HAIR ON YOUR HEAD." So... I have a lot of hair. My hair grows in different textures depending on the area. In some spots it's kind of wavy, some tight coils, some it's like a coarse Brillo pad. i stopped getting relaxers about a decade ago after developing bald spots and switched to Global Keratin treatments. At the time that I used this product, I was getting close to needing a fresh Keratin. The product smelled great, which was a plus. My hair, due to the various textures, sometimes mushes into almost a dreadlock if I don't keep up with my flat ironing. I had a pretty aggressive surgery and have not been able to maintain my hair and developed lots of gnarly knots during my bed rest. Once i was able to shower and lift my arms, i used this product to detangle and the knots easily came out. My hair was also super soft soft after use. I was very impressed as most products cannot handle my hair.
Most Helpful Critical Review I probably would not buy again
I received a sample of this shampoo for free for testing purposes. I tried the sample in the shower, and I felt that it did not lather as much as I would want from a shampoo. I didn't feel like my hair got as clean as I would want from a shampoo, and it did not live up to the shampoo that I currently use and I'm happy with. I did not try the shampoo on its own, I tried it with the conditioner as well that matches the set. In combination, I found that after I washed my hair, the endless felt particularly dry, my hair did not feel less frizzy, and I am particularly felt like I had residue in my hair and that my hair was not as clean as I would like. I know that I washed it out, in combination, I found that after I washed my hair, the ends felt particularly dry, my hair did not feel less frizzy, and I particularly felt like I had residue in my hair and that my hair was not as clean as I would like. I know that I washed it out, so my only conclusion would be that the ingredients in this leave your hair feeling like there is product still in it.

Bethany from Indiana
I normally don't leave reviews but this was so bad I felt I had to! The only good thing I can say about it is that it smells good. To start with, it would not lather at all! I had to really work it to make it lather. It also would leave a weird film on my hair. I air dry my hair and would wake in the morning to the top my hair feeling crunch and goopy... one time I put the shampoo in my hand (when I meant to put the conditioner), when I tried to rinse it off it would not come off my hand all the way. It left a layer on my hand that I had to really scrub to get off. I can't image how much wouldn't actually come out of my hair!

This stuff smells so yummy. I want to use this everyday forever. the smell actually stays my hair and makes my hair really soft. Will be buying again!
Best smelling shampoo ever
lisarebc from NJ
This is literally the best smelling shampoo I've ever smelled. I ordered it based on other people's opinion and when i smelled it, it was as true as they said. I will forever use it.
It doesn't get as soapy as other shampoos because it is sulfate free but the smell makes it worth using extra (doing two rounds).
Definitely a great purchase!!
Kacey from CLT
I only use this shampoo when I'm going to let my hair curl. Gives it a great shine! And no frizz which has always been the case with other shampoos!!
For the price.. wow!
Diva_doll_nik_e from Charlotte, nc
I love eva nyc products. They are so affordable, cruelty free, smell great... salon quality. The only reason I didn't give 5 stars is because I wish they offered a protein free shampoo and conditioner for times my hair is less stressed and just needs moisture. But overall, I love these products.
Living proof dupe
Zendabrain from Midland, Mi
I was looking for a cheaper version of the Living Proof anti frizz and I think I found one yay
Marla from Maryland
This is a fine conditioner, nothing special. I thought it smelled okay, but it wasn't my favorite. I probably won't repurchase this again, but I'll definitely use it up.
So so. Wouldn't repurchase
JadeVM from CA
I love all of the other EVA NYC products I own including the Satin Dream Leave-In Cream, the Mane Magic Primer, the deep conditioner Hair Therapy mask, the purple temporary spray, the texturizing hair spray, and the city grit matte texture spray. Love love love those products so I figured I'd try the Mane Magic shampoo and conditioner. I must say the conditioner was better than the shampoo but this just didn't quite cut it for me. I had to use a lot and it didn't detangle my hair well or make it feel more manageable or less frizzy. I'm glad I tried it but it's just not for me. Highly recommend the above mentioned products by this brand though!
Candice from Ohio
Love this shampoo! My hair smells amazing and it looks so healthy!!
Underwhelmed by this conditioner
Christina S from WV
Honestly quite underwhelmed by this product. I have moderately damaged, thick, color-treated hair. I am a HUGE fan of some of the other shampoos and conditioners by this brand (Therapy Session mask, Clean It Up shampoo), so when I was running low on conditioner I decided to venture here. This produce is SO THIN and watery that it honestly doesn't even feel like conditioner is in my hair when I'm applying the product. And I used a LOT. I get out of the shower and question if I even conditioned because my have gets frizzy immediately after towel drying. I'm a fan of thicker conditioners, so this may be better for someone with thinner or less damaged hair. But if you need added moisture and smoothing, go with the Therapy Session.
Mady from Maryland
I have thin, wavy, frizzy hair and have had trouble keeping it smooth & manageable with the humidity. I tried this shampoo and the matching conditioner once & it helped with my frizz! My hair stayed smooth & silky. It also smells great! I'm excited to see how this helps my hair after a couple uses!
Finally, my hair feels clean all day long.
Qbnlily from Lake Elsinore, CA
I must say I was kinda hesitant to use this product based on the reviews. I have thin, curly hair. I usually use Keranique to thicken my hair. Lately its been drying my hair out. Decided I want something a little cheaper and not so drying. Have tried a couple items from Ipsy, thought why not. SO happy I did. This leaves my hair feeling so clean and full of life. Its not frizzy or dried out. Can actually feel my hair growing since I've started using this. Highly recommend, as least try it for yourself.
Debbie from Voorhees, NJ
Really nice conditioned with a great scent. Excited to have found this. Detangling curly hair with this is easy.
Debbie from Voorhees, NJ
Smells great and does the job without drying the hair out too much.
meh. just okay.
girlwithbluehair_ from Pittsburgh, PA
I'm almost done with the bottle and I can honestly say I've noticed only a slight improvement in my hair since using this shampoo and conditioner combo, but it's not "magic". I constantly feel like my scalp isn't getting as clean as it should with the shampoo and the conditioner does a decent job. i have a scalp condition that looks similar to dandruff and it acts up from time to time (typically when I'm stressed) but since using this, towards the ladder half of the bottle I've noticed my condition becoming a daily battle. smells great but won't be repurchasing.

I am currently going through my curly girl journey and this shampoo is the best! Love the smell and how it leaves my hair feeling on my wash day!
Hydrating - but greasy
Joki from Portland
This product is good and smells amazing - I just don't think it was a good product for my hair. I have pretty healthy and oily/thin hair. Its super hydrating and made my hair super soft, but after a day I felt like my hair was even greasier. It's very heavy stuff, so it would be perfect for anyone with dry and thirsty hair. It's overall a good product, but if you have thin and/or oily hair I wouldn't recommend.
HORRIBLE CONTACT DERMATITIS AND DANDRUFF
Haley from Grand Rapids
I was initially really excited to try this out based on all the good reviews but my experience with both the shampoo and the conditioner couldn't have been worse. I have medium-fine hair which typically airs on the drier side. This not only weighed down my hair and made my roots greasy but it gave me the WORST DANDRUFF of my life which eventually led to contact dermatitis. My scalp was constantly itchy and sore where even brushing it was painful. I couldn't figure it out until I realized it first started when I used this shampoo. I eventually had to get prescription-strength shampoo from my doctor just to get rid of the constant flakiness on my scalp which I am still dealing with it and it's been six months. I've warned my friends about this stuff, so if you're thinking of trying it just do yourself a favor and don't. There are tons of better alternatives to this that are both cheap and high end. Literally buy anything but this. If I could give this stuff less than a one star rating, I would.
Love this Shampoo
Ashley from Tennessee
I was researching the best type of shampoos for fine/damaged hair, and I ultimately chose this brand, and I couldn't be more happy with my purchase.
