Most Helpful Positive Review Love it!
I have straight, long and fairly thick hair. I don't have a big problem with frizz, but I wanted to try this shampoo because I like citrus scents. I am so glad that I did! It rinses clean really easily, and gives that squeaky clean feeling without drying. It doesn't leave build-up on my scalp. And it leaves my hair really soft and extra shiny. I previously used the green NYM shampoo for scalp health, which was OK, but I actually think this shampoo is better for my scalp due to the lack of residue. As I'd hoped, it smells really good (although doesn't really last after showering? But I don't mind).
My only complaint, as others have said, the pump really sucks. It doesn't dispense very much shampoo and you have to wait a bit for the pump to go back up to press it again for more. I may pour it into a different bottle? I am hoping NYM can fix this in the future, as I'd like to keep using it!
Most Helpful Critical Review Disappointed ..
I reallllllyy do not like this at all unfortunately. I never tried anything from this brand before, but the labeling of their products sucked me in. Well truthfully, I wish I had read reviews before purchasing because I'm pretty disappointed. For starters, the pumps on both the shampoo bottle & also the conditioner don't even work. It gets stuck and I have to manually pull each one back up and press it back down to get product to come out & it takes MULTIPLE pumps to get even one good amount. The texture is very weird, which isn't that uncommon with all natural products but it was more like the hard part of crusted up lotion that gets stuck to the opening of a bottle than it was silky shampoo which was just really off putting to me. I wont give it one star because it does at least smell good, but it doesn't really smell like a blood orange & black currant mixture for me, not getting any spice notes in there, it kinda just smells like an orange Tic Tac lol. Which is fine, but... a little too orange for me, still smells nice though. But overall very disappointed with this purchase, probably won't be buying again or recommending it. Sorry for the brutally honest review but yeah 😬

it smells amazing
Smells great, did not do great things for my hair
Kim from United States
I usually love Not Your Mother's products and I figured this shampoo/conditioner would be no different. it seemed that immediately after using my hair started falling out much more than it had before. It's taking some time to get my hair back to where it was before using this product.
Not a Fan
Madison from Florida
I got this because I like other products from this brand and because it's inexpensive. It doesn't get the hairspray and other products out of my hair even if I really lather it up. My hair feels straw-like and dirty still after I wash my hair with this and the matching conditioner. Won't be buying again :(
Hope from Spokane Valley Washington
I love this shampoo and conditioner! It makes my hair smell so good. The shampoo doesn't make my hair stiff at all it makes it super soft along with the conditioner. I don't really like the pump it's a little hard to unlock and it pops off
Not worth it
Hooman from San Diego, CA
The only good thing about it is the smell. The product itself makes the hair hella dry and stiff. I have curly 2c/3a hair, and when I use this the hair gets frizzy and the curls are not as defined. I used it with the corresponding conditioner. Overall, pretty bad.
Would not buy again
GLJ from Florida
This shampoo will make your hair STIFF , however the conditioner will bring it back to "normal" . The smell is nice but it's a no for me.
Perfect for Fine, curly hair 2C/3A
Curly24 from Las Vegas, NV
This is the best shampoo I have tried for my fine, 2C/3A long curly hair. It cleans very well without drying. The conditioner works great too and doesn't weigh my curls down. I have tried tons of products recommended by Curly Girl method and this one works best if you have fine curls.
eln from Chicago, Illinois
A gentle shampoo with a nice scent.
kaku from Az

Random Ulta Customer from Hamden CT
Loooooove this!!!! Leaves my hair soft and shiny. A LOT of people are saying this and it's true : THE PUMP IS SO HARD TO USE!!!!!! Still, this stuff is awesome! 👍
Strips my hair
AA from IL
The smell is nice and that's about it for me. It makes my hair really dry and hay-like feeling, which causes my scalp to produce more oil.
I would buy it again
Andrea from El Paso
Don't love the smell but my hair feel amazing
I love it
Sun from Richmond VA
I love it I usually wash my hair every two days but it cleans my scalp pretty well without causing extra drying on my hair or itchiness on my scalp I feel that my hair doesn't attract dirt as much as like when I am using other shampoos from some popular brands. And I don't understand why some people are saying it leaves a waxy feeling.
This pump is TERRIBLE!
Kwegs from Michigan
I use this for regular hair care. I wash my hair about every other day and I have some thick hair and a medium length. I need several pumps of product and this takes FOREVER to pop back out and it still doesn't refill the pump
Curly white girl from Bryan, TX
Is the pump awful? YES! It is all the bad things everyone says it is. But I have FINALLY found an inexpensive shampoo that is curly girl approved that actually works on my curly hair. I have tried every brand of cg approved shamp+condit for curly hair including the one for curly hair from this line and they have turned my hair to straw. I've used the blood orange one three times so far and my hair is soft and shiny and my curls are changing from thin and wavy back to thick and spiral. I'm thrilled. Oh, and it smells so goooooood!
Dries hair out
Cinnabunny81 from Kennewick, WA
I love the smell! Reminds me of grapefruit. Sadly it dries out my coarse nonporous hair even after conditioning it.
Possibly the worst shampoo ever
Yogagiggles from Florida
The pump bottle doesn't work well, you have to pump 50 times to get enough out. Then, it doesn't work into your hair well at all, or even lather. Hair feels waxy and dry afterward. The other products were bad too
Not the best
Pam from Bella Vista, AR
I have used it three times to make sure it wasn't just a build-up issue or something off. My hair feels so dry and sticky after use.
Tristin from Louisiana
Gentle enough to use every day and leaves hair soft and manageable.
Tristin from New Orleans, LA
Leaves my hair silky soft. I like that it's gentle enough for daily use and smells great.
I wish this worked as good as it smells :(
Lily u from Gilbert, AZ
This smells SOOOO GOOD however it does not lather and I have to use about 4 full pumps for my shoulder length hair. I LOVE LOVE LOVE this brand but this is not my fav.
FIX THE PUMP!
Gabbadoo from CO
Very disappointed. I needed something a little more budget friendly than my usual Matrix Hydrasource. I was drawn to the cute packaging so I tried this shampoo and conditioner combo. Didn't have my phone to check reviews but didn't think it was THIS bad! First, the pump doesn't work so it takes forever getting the right amount out. Second, it leaves hair "squeaky" clean but removes essential scalp oils and dries my hair out. My hair was very dry and somewhat frizzy afterwards. The next day, my scalp was already oily but the rest of my hair was super dry. I didn't expect a hair miracle but for this brand, I did expect more. I'll never buy this again and I definitely won't skimp on hair care products again, no matter how tight money is.
Love this product!
Tristin from LA
This shampoo smells so good, without being to strong or overpowering. It is gentle enough to use every day, which is great because I live where it is very hot and humid. I often have to wash my hair every day. It leaves my hair feeling soft and hydrated. It helps keep my hair from being tangled and knotted which often happens with my hair. I also love that it is mostly natural products.
Jen from WA
Pump doesn't work, the product is so thick it can't get through. It has left my hair feeling like straw, very dull. What a waste!
Nice shampoo, bad pump.
Rena from Boston, MA
This is the first sulfate-free shampoo I've ever tried and was pleasantly surprised by the results. I like that this shampoo has some lather when worked onto the scalp, and it smells great. I'm not sure if this is true with most sulfate-free shampoos, but this one leaves my hair feeling a little squeaky after it's rinsed out, which isn't great. Also, the pump on all of these products is awful and my biggest complaint. Overall, I like this shampoo, but probably wouldn't repurchase over trying something new.
