Most Helpful Positive Review Clean, Residue-free, Silky Hair That Moves
I have wavy, medium length, light brown hair (past my shoulders), and recently switched to using the Nexxus Therappe shampoo after my last hair cut. I think cutting off the dead ends and nourishing my hair with this shampoo has really helped improve the health and feel of my hair. The shampoo smells great and my hair feels very clean and without residue. I usually blow dry my hair straight, but I now even like my natural, wavy hair after using this shampoo.
Most Helpful Critical Review New Formulation - may be new, but not improved
I've been using Nexxus Therappe for close to 20 years. I loved it because it was thick, lathered well, and smelled fantastic. It made my hair soft and shiny. I just purchased a bottle of the "new formulation" (in a silver bottle instead of the cream bottle), and I was very disappointed with it. First, the smell is very unappealing. Instead of the traditional coconut smell, it's now a soapy, chemical smell. Second, the look of the product is thinner and does not lather as well. The product is now white instead of clear. Third, my hair doesn't feel as soft as it used to when I used the old formulation. It seems to weigh my hair down. I'm very disappointed in this new formulation.

I have really struggled to find a conditioner that makes my hair smooth and moisturized without greasy patches. This works wonders, my hair is so soft, shiny and feels clean and no greasy patches. Glad I didn't let some of the reviews sway me.
My favorite Shampoo
Padmehlc from Massachusetts
I love this shampoo! I used it for years until I couldnt find it anymore and was so excited to find it again last summer. It gets my hair nicely clean while still keeping it moisturized and soft. The scent is amazing and so fresh and subtle. The only downside is the pump doesnt quite get all the product out so you need to open it and shake it down/pour it out to get all of the product. I can get a couple weeks worth out after it seems empty just using the pump.
My go to conditioner
Padmehlc from Massachusetts
This is my go to conditioner. I used it years ago and then couldnt find it for a while but nothing ever came close to getting my hair as soft and smooth as this one. I was so excited to find it again last spring and have bought 3 bottles now, and will continue to buy it as long as it is available.
At first I wasn't sure... but now I LIKE
V.bing from 38019,TN
At first I wasn't sure. I have mainly used Herbal Essence and Tresemme.. while they have been good, I have noticed less hair loss with Nexus, and my hair feels lighter. So far, I am not disappointed!

I feel like i want to through up when I smell it and Makes my hair very oily and weighted down.
Summer from MI
No no no! I have dry thick hair and figured i'd give this a try. Left my scalp very itchy and I had red bumps. I also had a lot of build up at my roots. i'm not generally sent sensitive to many shampoos but this one is a big NO. Harmful ingredients.
Lily from NY
Yet another excellent product that has been ruined by a new, modern formulation. What a disappointment! The newer formula contains DMDM Hydantoin, which will irritate the scalp and cause major hair loss! It's also very drying, something previous versions of Humectress has never been like. I've used Nexxus Humectress on and off since the 80s and this current formula is utter garbage.

Love this product. I've been using this product for decades. Keeps your hair nourished.

Love this shampoo.

My hairdresser has used this for years on me, and I've never found a better product, EVER!
Yanna from Arizona
Please do your research on the ingredients. There is DMDM hydantion in this. Sure, this may make your hair feel nice and smell good for a while. Then the hair fall/balding happens. There are many shampoo brands that are healthier.
KJB from Coon Rapids
I have been using this for 4+ months now after trying different brands and this is the best. Smells good, soft hair, silky soft. Love and I will continue to buy this, even my kids love it.
I think the people who say they had hair fall out had other issues because I don't think this causes hair loss.
Dry my hair

Very bad smell and dry my hair
Not as expected
Honest2 from IL
I purchased this shampoo a few years ago, and it was amazing. However, now, after one wash, excessive amount of hair falls out after I brush it. I don't remember that happening in the past. It's nicely scented though.

I've only used this once but I can definitely say this is my new favorite shampoo! 😍 it's perfect for dry hair! It lathers really nice and makes my hair feel hydrated! Also it smells really good 😍
Do not buy this
Michael from Everett, WA
It gave off awful fumes that made me ill.
This is awful conditioner
Thyme2spend from Pennsylvania
I bought this, because my usual brand was out. What a mistake! The minute I applied the conditioner my palms were covered with loose hair, which is not normal for my hair. My hair ended up being a matted clump of knot. It was tangle free after shampooing. I had to use a greasy thermal protectant, just to be able to get a wide toothed comb through my matted hair. My hair felt like it stayed dripping wet for an excessive period of time. I had to stop blow drying my hair, because my hair ended up being so dried out. The kicker is, the next day, my hair looked greasy. I literally had to use dry shampoo on day one of washing my hair. The conditioner also made my scalp burn in spots. I will never buy Nexxus Humectress again. I would give it zero stars if I could.
I get so many compliments on how healthy my hair looks
Chels from Tyler, TX
A friend gave me the remainder of her bottle of this because it did make her scalp itchy. Luckily, I don't have that problem and now I'm sold! It cleanses my oily hair enough to give it a little volume, but it also leaves my hair soft and frizz free. I wash my hair every 2 days, blow dry, and use a hot iron and without other products, my hair looks amazing and fresh. I've used the shampoo also, but feel the conditioner can work with any shampoo. The only downfall is the price since I do wash my hair often so I'll go through it faster.
Smells Like Cough Syrup.
Meghan from Colorado
I recently bought this because I live in a very dry area and I've been looking for a nice salon quality hydrating shampoo. This one isn't horrible, but I have a very hard time getting around the fact that it smells strongly of cough syrup. Extremely sweet, chemically, and unappealing. The results are good, but the benefits just don't outweigh the smell... so there is no way I would recommend it to anyone. There are other shampoos I have tried with better ingredient lists, similar results, better scents, better availability, and that are priced similarly. The 3 stars I gave are because my hair seems to do well with this shampoo, otherwise.
Love for my hair
KC from Indiana
I had been using a color safe shampoo and conditioner (recommended by an Ulta stylist) and they were awful. It felt like the shampoo and/or conditioner stuck in my hair, wouldn't rinse out. I would look at my hair and it was weighed down and looked greasy. I had to use dry shampoo immediately after my hair dried just to make it look decent and be able to run my fingers through. Anyway. I decided to go back to this conditioner and see if made an improvement in my hair - and it did! I immediately stopped using the color safe conditioner (I still use the color safe shampoo and it's fine so it was definitely the conditioner that was the issue) and bow using the Nexxus conditioner, my hair is soft and clean.

DO NOT BUY THIS
Lydia from San Diego
I had been using this product for quite some time over 3 months.. and yes the shampoo leaves your hair clean and the conditioner leaves your hair soft... BUT it makes your hair fall out! To the point where you need to go to the doctor to try and figure out what's going on! Balls of hair where falling out and I didn't know why! No stress, no diet changes, no baby... then I bumped into this.. an ingredient found in this product DHDH Hydantoin causes hair loss and scalp burn!! My scalp was always red! This and may other products have DHDH Hydantoin! Please make sure to read the labels before buying any product that can do the total opposite what they claim and damage your hair!
Dry Hair + Breakage
Dry Hair from New York
If you have fine hair, do not purchase. This shampoo dried out my hair and caused excessive hair loss! Once I switched my shampoo I noticed the difference and my hair was shinier and less hair loss. This shampoo will give you a fake shine because of the chemicals. Avoid!
