Most Helpful Positive Review Holy Grail for hard to straighten hair...
I have been using a combination of expensive products for a LONG time, trying to find the right blend to straighten my super curly hair (I have even tried keratin treatments which didn't make much of a difference). Then, I bought Pureology Smooth Perfection Shampoo and conditioner and then used Living Proof Perfect Hair Day, pea sized amount, by itself, with NO other products...and that was the trick!! Now it only takes me 15 minutes to blow out my hair with a paddle brush. It is like my hair wants to be straight when I use these products. I never write reviews, but I wanted to share because I'm so happy I have finally found something that works. Hope this helps!
Most Helpful Critical Review Its ok
I have used a few different of the Pureology shampoos in the past (my favorite being the blonde) and I was excited to try this new combo. I'm going to be honest, it's just ok. It may be just my hair type, but I find that I can barely go two days without washing it again, and when I do wash, I don't always feel like my hair is super clean. I am not a huge fan of how it smells, but the scent fades quick once I rinse, so that's not too bad. I also don't feel as though it makes my hair any smoother than any other shampoo I've used. I would probably switch back to a different formula.

I was searching for a shampoo to leave my hair clean without residues and at the same time to help my scalp to feel clean and not itchy. The name of this shampoo got my attention but after reading the reviews I was in doubt. The first time i used it i immediately saw a difference in my hair. My hair felt clean, soft and it looked shiny. This is just the beginning i hope it continues to feel that way. It usually takes more time to see how your scalp react to it. So I'm hoping that this shampoo is the one. I read people talking about the smell and that made me doubt for a minute but the smell doesn't bother me at all. Is not a fruity or sweet smell but for sure it is clean. So as long as it works for my hair Im happy.
New Formula smells horrible!
Lori75 from undisclosed
I have used this shampoo for so many years I've lost count. I use Arbonne products from head to toe but not shampoo because this shampoo WAS the best. The new formula stinks and my hair feels disgusting. I'm returning and looking for a new shampoo.
Talia from California
This was my favorite shampoo ever! It left my hair feeling amazing and the smell was so good! BUT the formula changed!! It smells completely different, and now it leaves a weird residue. I'm so sad! Please fix this Pureology!
My new favorite!
2 cents Sam from Chicago, IL
I have thinner/finer hair that is prone to get greasy quickly so I wash it every other day, at a minimum. This hair care line is perfect! My hair is naturally wavy/curly and was quite frizzy when it dried until I started using this stuff. A little goes a long way, hair definitely feels softer and has more shine to it. Totally love this stuff, worth every penny.
New formula is garbage.
Heather31 from Chesterfield, MO
I've been using this shampoo (and the conditioner) for years. It was the best. Was. It is no longer.
First of all, the new smell is terrible. It smells like baby powder.
Second, my hair is no longer clean. This leaves a residue that builds up in my scalp. As I said, I've used this for years and it only started doing that with this stinky reformulation. I literally scratch my scalp and baby powder scented grime comes out.
Lastly, my hair is not as silky smooth as before. It's okay, but not great.
I'm so disappointed. The old formulation was the absolute best. My hair was clean, silky smooth, and smelled heavenly. Please please please bring it back. Charge more for it, I don't care. But I for sure will NOT buy this reformulated shampoo again. It's just very expensive, powder scented garbage.
Smooth Perfection Shampoo
Lynne Tillman from undisclosed
This product smells wonderful and makes my coarse thick hair feel extra smooth and manageable!
Hellcat from Milwaukee
I have long hair down to my waist that has been put through the ringer of being dyed and overly processed that left my hair dry and frizzy. I've been working on getting my hair to a healthy state again and recently got a trim that left my hair soft and manageable. I decided to treat myself to a luxury shampoo and picked this one up to keep my hair smooth. Worst decision ever! It made my hair much drier, frizzy and hard to manage. My hair is even falling out in chunks in the shower. I am so upset! There is NOTHING smoothing about this shampoo. If I didn't throw my receipt out I would define my return it.
Makes my hair tangle
Bree from Jonesboro
I used to love this but the new formula does nothing good for my hair and it tangled my hair up to the point where I had to cut it
Other Scents Work Better for Me
justineb43 from undisclosed
I love Pureology products and use them daily, but smooth perfection was not for me. I use hydrate now instead. Smooth perfection doesnt smell as good and it made my scalp feel weird and my hair greasy. I have very thick wavy hair.
New scent is terrible
Prom hair from Denver
I've been using Purology smooth perfection for years on my long thick frizzy colored hair. Honestly only kept "affording" the liquid gold because I loved the smell. Got compliments all the time. Imagine how mad I was when I bought the $$$jumbo bottles and they had changed the scent to an icky cloying smell of every other cheap shampoo!! I'm using up what I have and then I'm shopping for another brand that won't strip my color. Please bring back the other scent!
I like this product a lot.
Trophy from AZ
My daughter uses this product and let me try it. I liked it so decided to try it.
New scent is gross
Danielle from Georgia
This was my favorite shampoo until the scent changed. I LOVED the old scent because it didn't smell earthy like the moisture line. I won't purchase again.
Salon quality shampoo
chanelf8 from undisclosed
This shampoo made my hair so soft and smooth. It literally felt like I had just been to the salon. I keep running my hands through it. I cant believe I waited this long to purchase a quality shampoo. Well worth the price. You dont need to use a lot. I used a tablespoon and I have long thick hair. Love it!
Worth the price
amym192 from undisclosed
I have dismissed Pureology products for much too long. Id thought that they were not worth the price. Guess what? I was so wrong.
When I use this shampoo with the matching conditioner, all frizz and dryness is improved so much that its hard to believe. Yes, theyre both expensive. I need to use so little though, and I have long, thick hair. I only need to use about a tablespoon, probably less, and it cleans and moisturizes my hair perfectly.
The scent isnt very strong and I personally like it. Even if you dont, it doesnt stay in your hair. I wouldnt hesitate to recommend this to anyone.
bring back the old scent and formula..

(10/15/20) new smell is not pleasant and hair did not feel soft as before...
Hate the smell
Rachel from Monroe
I bought the travel size to test it out but only used it once. While it worked ok, the smell is terrible. It smells of very strong perfume and it was more than I could take.
Brooke from Maryland
The formula has changed and it doesn't smooth my frizzy hair like it used to. Plus the smell has changed and is heavy on the patchouli, which I personally don't love smelling in my hair all day long.
Has been my go to...
kuriousskin9 from undisclosed
Has been my go to shampoo recently! It has helped replenish my hair and has helped with the frizziness, and it cleans my hair without making it feel too stripped.
This shampoo and...
jhowz8 from undisclosed
This shampoo and conditioner line is pretty fabulous. I can honestly say thats Ive never spent this much money on either product, but after trying these, Im willing to!! The scent was fresh and sooo good, and it seemed to last for days! I typically wear my hair up in a scrub cap for work, and I was able to go 2-3 days without washing, and STILL smelled the yummy scent every time I let my hair down during those days of no wash. My hair was also noticeably softer and smoother, and seemed easier to manage.
Ive used Pureology...
savrobz from undisclosed
Ive used Pureology products on and off for years now. I reeeeeeeally wanted to love this shampoo and conditioner but it just doesnt seem to out perform my other moisture and smooth fave products. The smell is a little too sweet, BUT it does have an excellent lather that doesnt lift my sensitive color. My hair feels much cleaner after a few days of not washing/dry shampoo so that is also a plus. I wont switch to this in the future, mainly because of the cost.
Nikki from New Hampshire
I really wanted to like this product, it made my hair SOOO soft but the more I continued to use it the more hair fallout I noticed. My scalp was super itchy and whenever I would shower and wash my hair with this I would have literally chunks of hair coming out when I rinsed it out, you could feel the hair going down your back and when I would try to squeeze the excess water out of my hair more hair would come out. It wasn't just in the shower either, I would have more hair come out when my hair was dry it just kept coming out. I have NO health issues and this was really scaring me. I went back to my function of beauty and my hair stopped falling out so much, my scalp stopped itching as well. Idk if I'm allergic to something in this but I don't recommend.
best shampoo for long dry hair.
marahg1 from undisclosed
After having my second child my hair grew like 12 inches but it was extremely dry and would get matted 2.5 seconds after brushing it. After I started using this shampoo my hair is so hydrated, soft and stays untangled. If you have long dry hair get this shampoo!!
Nixon from Texas
I ordered the travel size so I could try it out before buying the large bottle...but its only filled about half way so its not even enough to try it... whatta waste of money
Pureology Smooth Perfection
madisond108 from undisclosed
This whole Smooth Perfection line is amazing! So concentrated that a little bit truly goes a long way, 75+ uses in the 8.5oz bottle! This line has a built in heat protectant, and Humidity resistance that lasts for days when using a styler with the shampoo&conditioner!
Smooth Perfection Shampoo
aprv30 from undisclosed
I received the Pureology Smooth Perfection system complimentary in exchange for my review. The shampoo has a rich lather and left my hair feeling clean and not stripped. The shampoo has a light Shea butter scent, which is not my favorite, however its still a pleasant scent. The shampoo in conjunction with the conditioner and serum also help minimize my frizz.
