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.

I love the other products in the line and use them constantly so I figured I should try the shampoo and conditioner. They made my feel dirty and flaky. I need a shampoo to wash my hair because of my shampoo and conditioner…
Works well, but
Elizabethjc from Wisconsin
I bought this (as well as majority of the curl talk line) for an inexpensive start to styling my hair natural. The entire line works well and makes my hair soft, but the fragrance is way too strong. I've noticed my face, neck and back getting so red and irritated after using these products. If I could return the entire line, I would, as my skin just doesn't react well
Nice smell and texture
Rach89 from Modesto, CA
I love that I don't have to use a lot of shampoo to later, I have shoulder length hair. It smells nice, not overpowering.
On my shopping list!
Jillers from Michigan
What a game changer! I have many different types of curls, and I was very skeptical.but it's amazing! Light weight and moisturizing! You can leave the conditioner on and it fights frizz and doesn't weigh hair down!
I hate this shampoo
Lletzin from Chicago
I've tried other things from this line and I LOVE them but this shampoo has me constantly feeling dry and itchy on my scalp
I really thought this was my holy grail shampoo...
Kris from NYC
Until I realized that it makes my hair too dry! I wash my hair about every 4 days and I find it too stripping for "daily" use. However I really do like it for a deep clean when I need to cleanse my hair well and don't want to use a clarifying shampoo with sulfate. It has its purpose and it works well. I pair it with a deep conditioner.
I would buy this again

I love how it cleans my hair really good and nothing bad to say about this product
Middle ground shampoo
CurlyHeadedQueen from ID
I really really wanted to love this as much as I love the gel but I just can't. I tried so many different things but this left a residue on my hair which wasn't a problem I've ever had before. It suds up beautifully, smells divine, and the shampoo itself honestly looks gorgeous. It just didn't do it for me.
Corey from New york
Loved it. It great for ALL curl types I'm a 2c to 3a/b curly girl and it was perfect
ANM from Austin
Definitely doesn't work for my 2a/2b waves, bought the shampoo, conditioner and styling gel. Was totally looking forward to seeing the outcome after reading all the positive reviews, very disappointed. Will definitely be returning.
Jackie from Blacksburg CA
So I bought this shampoo / conditioner along with the gel and curl cream from this line. At first it worked out great for my 3A/3B fine hair, but then I noticed my hair getting thinner. Now my hair has no volume/possible hair loss. I've never had my hair this thin before. Maybe I used too much product? I made sure not to wash every day but I don't know...
Debbie from CA
Love this shampoo, no silicones or sulfates, and not drying. I switch off with an occasional sulfate to clarify. But this is my regular go to shampoo along with their 3-in-1 conditioner.
Not For My Fine 3B/3C Hair
Kae from Denver, CO
I have used this shampoo on my hair 3x now and I just cannot continue to fool myself. This shampoo strips all moisture out of my fine 3B/3C hair. I have to spend extra long re-detangling the hair i just pre-poo'd. I've tried using it without a pre poo and the results are the same. I put the ingredients list into IsItCG.com and they warned this may not be suitable for use more than once a month and I would have to agree. I will definitely be trying to return this. Not a fan.
Jenna from Florida
I love the Curl Talk line! I have definitely seen a difference in my hair while using it. My hair is now less frizzy and more curly than ever!
*The shampoo makes my hair appear greasy, however, but the Conditioner and Masque work perfectly fine with my hair!*
Don't waste your money
Liz from Usa
I don't usually write reviews, but this shampoo was super drying and made my hair a nightmare to detangle. I have long 2c hair and a somewhat oily scalp so I thought I'd give this a shot, but after one use, I will be returning it.
I've been Deva girl for years!

I thought I'd try something new. I loved the was it smelled and the way it did not weigh my Curls down. It was super soft to the touch and it did not get frizzy when I ran my fingers through my hair.
Jess from Syracuse
It also removes hard water built up
Love this shampoo
Cynthia from Evergreen park ,il
It always leaves my hair soft and smells really good .
Is it because it's sulfate free?
Katie from Texas
I filmed a video of doing the Cgm for a month and only used this. My scalp became really itchy towards the end of the video. I like it if you're going to be clarifying. I don't personally like sulfate free shampoos.
Dawn from Indiana
Smells really nice! Makes my hair feel soft. No frizz.
BrookeW from United States
After only a few washes I have so much buildup on my scalp. My hair gets oily faster. I'm going to be putting this product in the circular filling cabinet.
I really wanted to like this
Morgan from Ct
After using the shampoo and conditioner for a few weeks I really feel that my hair is not being washed well enough. I have type 2C/3A curly hair and I felt that my hair was dry and had an almost sticky feel to it. My scalp became itchy and developed bumps so I had to throw it all away. I would never use one of their products again.
Won't buy again
KarinnaR. from Coral Springs
Purchased the shampoo and conditioner but didnt work for me. My hair felt hard and dry after washing and rinsing.
Larissa from Fremont
I've only used this shampoo twice so far, but my hair didn't feel great after washing and rinsing. I used it with the curl talk conditioner. it all felt so heavy in my hair. I really wanted to like this product. Just not for me.
Did not work for me
KK from Brooklyn from Brooklyn, NY
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
