Most Helpful Positive Review Shock and awe❤️
Since I color my hair I have to be very careful of products that don't contain sulphate and are safe for colored hair. I decided to give this line a try and I was blown away! Not only did it clean my hair without making it feel stripped, dry, or greasy after I was done shampooing and conditioning I blowdried my hair and it was soft and supple and very shiny with no product. That's a first for me and I am definitely a believer in the shampoo and conditioner. The smell was fresh and subtle without being overwhelming. The only problem I had was it took a little extra conditioner to make it feel like my hair was properly conditioned but I don't mind that. Overall I was extremely pleased and will be purchasing this again in the future.
Most Helpful Critical Review Ehhh
Alright, so, heres the deal. I was VERY (very) confused when I got this VoxBox. Aside from a brief stint in middle school (12 years ago) when I got highlights that were a literal shade lighter than my natural hair color I have never dyed my hair. I am very clear on all platforms about how absolutely not color-treated my hair is. So getting a purple shampoo VoxBox for color treated hair was... shocking. Regardless, I tried the shampoo because I knew I needed to write this review. For starters, it smells... odd. Like Castile soap odd. But then after your hair dries, the smell somehow softens and smells light and (almost) pleasant. Its a magic trick. However, the shampoo also boasts strengthening properties, which my hair could use. So I used it consistently on my normal wash schedule for two weeks and Im not sure about how much stronger my hair is, but it definitely felt coarse. Like, horse hair coarse. And strong and coarse to me are just not synonymous. So its definitely not recommended for me in the strengthening field. Regardless, I feel that my review isnt quite fair because I cant review the shampoo as it relates to color treated hair. Which is its main purpose. Id like to believe it would earn more stars if I could write a review about that!

Leaves my hair with a clean feeling and doesn't strip my color
Do not recommend
Ashley from Texas
Gave it a fair chance but it left my hair greasy. It also gave my hair an ugly brassy color.
Cdenos from Salem, OR
I use this to wash my hair. It says it can keep my color. It's not something I have ever used before. I honestly bought it because it was on sale. The smell is really nice but it does not feel like it cleans my hair. I have to put a bunch in my hand and rub them together before putting on my hair to lather the soap up. Not a big, but then putting it on my hair even twice in a row just doesn't do much. Someone that doesn't have bleached hair May like this more.
Not what I expected
WavyHairGirl from undisclosed
I have used the Sheamoisture coconut and hibiscus curl and shine, and loved it. So I decided to give this a try, and I was disappointed. It leaves my hair really dry and stringy and it makes my hair fall off more than normal.

I only use a very small amount once a week just for the rice water. I mix it with my other shampoo. I don't have colored hair which is what the purple is for, to take away the bronze in blonde dyed hair.
The BEST shampoo for blonde/gray/silver hair
danie5115 from undisclosed
I couldn't go to the salon for months and tried covering gray/silver with at home solutions. Parts of my mainly blonde hair turned brassy. Twitter world rated this as a great shampoo. It is well-beyond great. It is the best shampoo I have ever used. My hair is plump and full but still manageable with no separate conditioner. Easy to style with little or no heat. Humid weather: still looks great. Love this company and their products.

everytime i used it my hair dried greasy immediately
Never buying again
Linhin1991 from New Albany indiana
The first time I used this product it made my hair so greasy at the root I couldn't even stand it I had to wash my hair again (with different shampoo). I thought maybe I didn't rinse it out all the way... so when I used it again for the second time, I made sure to rinse it out. It still left my hair very greasy. While in the shower my hair feels amazing with no tangles but once I get out and fix my hair I cannot stand the way my hair feels once I dry my hair.

This was my first time using a SM shampoo and Im incredible impressed. I wanted something with less chemicals, CG friendly and safe for coloured hair. I have very dry hair and this moisturizer my hair without weighing it down.
squeaky clean scalp
jennym5963 from undisclosed
so I have to admit I was very skeptical about this shampoo at first glance because it seemed very watery but I definitely am a fan.The packaging its self was very pretty and elegant. My favorite color is purple so I admit that I am a little biased. The shampoo did a good job of cleaning my scalp. It also lathered very beautifully which was not what I was expecting because of how watery it was. I really enjoyed the smell of this shampoo it was very floral and left my scalp feeling clean and refreshed.
Good for thick hair
minitank from OR
I have thick hair so I usually water my shampoo down before I apply it to my hair. This shampoo is more watery than most shampoos I've used to I didn't need to do that. The shampoo lathers well and cleaned my hair without stripping. The only problem was the smell. It lingered on my hair for a while. it doesn't smell BAD, but it smells artificial.

Just bought this item and its great! Leaves my stronger than before and soft and smooth
krystalh35 from undisclosed
This shampoo definitely gave my hair the strength and moisture it craves, but I wouldnt call it a purple shampoo. I dont feel like it did anything for the brasiness of my hair. I wouldnt recommend for anyone with an oily scalp. More for people with dry hair.
larisav1 from undisclosed
Simple with a nice scent. Didnt love the packaging, but thats not a deal breaker. Got the job done. If I saw it in stores, I would repurchase.
andreap1 from undisclosed
I really liked the way this product cleaned my hair. I have purple and blue hair that I am very cautious what I use in it as I do not want it to fade. It left my hair with a nice shine and smells great too!
estephaniep0642 from undisclosed
The Purple Rice Water Strength + Color Care Shampoo works great. I did notice my hair feeling a lot thicker while using this shampoo. I definitely recommend this shampoo for anyone with a very dry scalp. The shampoo leaves almost like a layer of wax to keep your hair feeling silky. For me personally, I did not like the wax feeling on the hair and the smell was too over powering.
megans119 from undisclosed
This left my hair feeling really nice and clean without being overly drying. It also provided a good amount of moisture to my hair
not a good shampoo
annron from undisclosed
this shampoo is very soupy, there is no thickness to this product. it leaves my roots very greasy. I have used this product multiple times and have gotten the same result every time an itchy greasy scalp.
keris2cac from undisclosed
im not sure if this does anything for the color since my hair isnt color treated, but it smells really good and lathers nicely. it makes my hair feel clean
will buy again !
ncybella from undisclosed
I will definitely purchase this shampoo along with the conditioner . I was having issues with my hair falling off a lot and my scalp was a little dry. Did not use on a daily basis but it helped so much and only used about two pumps I have a lot of hair!
misssthangg from undisclosed
I absolutely love this shampoo. I have loved shea moisture for awhile and when I got this shampoo it was just as great as past shea moisture products I have used. the smell is great and I recommend
Terrible to my hair
Skyelove from undisclosed
I was super excited to use this following the shampoo! I have used Shea moisture products before & it has always made my hair so nice & soft ! Since using this product, my hair has been dry & brittle. Knots like crazy, and feels like I'm putting some plastic film over my hair. I have curly/ thick/ colored hair, I thought it would help, & has done nothing but make it worse
not my fav
princessjazzyx from undisclosed

tyreeses from undisclosed
Im a big fan of this brand. This shampoo smelled great, but I didnt like how runny the shampoo was. Other then that product was fine.
melm1221 from undisclosed
Ive been using this shampoo for a while now and it smells amazing. I love that it is very liquid so it spreads easily along the whole scalp. It also small so wonderful and relaxing! It surprisingly last a long time and I have long hair
