Rated 4.61 out of 5 stars
There's so much I love about this shampoo, but I want to begin by saying that this is the best shampoo I've used to encourage and protect my wily, wavy curl pattern -- including all of *those* curl shampoos you've heard about.
My long, damaged tresses get battered in the Florida sun, and in the shower where we have very alkaline water. No matter what shampoo I've used I experienced a combination of greasy oily roots and dried ends with frizzy mid-lengths. Which means using more products once I get out of the shower to mitigate all this.
This shampoo (along with it's mate conditioner) is my holy grail. It smells divine (and not intense), it's so perfectly cleansing (and I get really sweaty from daily HIIT workouts) and doesn't leave any build-up. Second and third day showers I scrub my scalp with my fingertips (I only shampoo once every 3 days) and my hair still feels perfectly clean. This is previously unheard of for me!
Most days I let my hair airdry after putting it up in a microfiber towel for 10 mins, then using a detangling leave-in sparingly with a wide-tooth comb. I get soft, frizz-free, gently waving lengths like some kind of mermaid, and can even sleep on my hair and enjoy the same easy-breezy style the next day.
I'm shockingly disappointed. After everything I've seen about Bondi Boost and their products, including the reviews on here, I was so excited to try something that was working as well as what I had been using before, but more accessible being at Ulta...and it had all of the opposite affects on my hair that it was supposed to. Hoping to continue the healing of my hair journey, I found that after one month of using this line of the shampoo/conditioner plus the heat protectant (even purchased a second smaller size conditioner), my hair is the most brittle it has ever been feeling like straw and my ends are wrecked. You can actually see through my hair now it has become so thin. At first I believed those results were stemming from my new leave-in conditioner I was trying (Kristin Ess) until I realized that the same thing was happening to my boyfriend's beautiful, thick, curly hair too (he was also using the Bondi Boost repair line with me) :( Love the ingredient list, do not love the product results.

I bought this with hopes of helping my dry damaged hair. It left my hair with a film on it, and a odd staticy texted for a few days even when washing with a different shampoo. I used both the shampoo and the conditioner.. I will be returning.

I honestly could not deal with the smell. The worst smelling hair product i have ever used.

I've only used this twice so far and already my hair feels so clean and silky. I truly was not expecting it to work so fast. Treat yourself to this incredible product – your hair deserves it!

This makes my hair feel so clean and smells incredible. You don't need a ton, rub it between your hands to lather it up first and a bottle will take you far! My hair has never looked so healthy!

Started using this when the HG line made my hair dry/brittle after a few months. This made is feel so much better! Only issue is that I can feel product buildup after just a few washes, at which point I use the Sea Salt Scrub to clean it out, and on those days, I use the TT line instead because if I use the RR line after the Salt Scrub, it gets really tangly for some reason. I don't mind alternating when it makes my hair feel and look great :)

This is the first shampoo that I tried from BondiBoost. It was a long time ago. I really liked it but it left my hair feeling a bit dry. Otherwise great. My hair felt fuller too.

I love to alternate between RR and HG. RR has drastically made my damaged hair stronger, shinier and overall way healthier.

Love the product, smell and texture of my hair after.

I'm in my late 70 s and my hair was getting very dry and coarse but with your shampoo and conditioner it is almost back to normal so of course I love it.

Perfect amount. Haven't experienced any hair growth but the product itself is lovely to use and leaves hair feeling nourished and cleans.

I usually switch out my shampoo and conditioners and I thought I would try this one out and its been great. My hair is so soft and manageable and even with having curly hair my frizz is non existent.
Deenah from Livermore,Ca
Post shower (using this shampoo) and running my fingers through my hair, my hair broke off in CHUNKS. I'm letting grow out from having it bleached and just a slight tug, my hair snapped off. I switched from olaplex (trying to be budget conscious) and decided on this and this my second time using it, I wash my hair every few days, and there's no major hair breakage but after using this shampoo, my hair is getting janky. it could be a combo of a lot factors but I will not continue to use this shampoo.

I've been using Rapid Repair for like two years now after switching from the HG line, and my 2c/3a hair loves it. I've tried lots of other brands but always come back to this shampoo/conditioner. I can tell that my hair health has improved greatly despite heat tools, processing, etc. My hairdresser actually asked me what I use because she was surprised it held up so well between appointments.
My one complaint is that I wish it had a stronger scent, but that's just my personal opinion and has nothing to do with the effectiveness of the product.

Made my hair feel stiff/unclean.

Wow...I've never had a shampoo and conditioner leave my hair so greasy. My roots look so gross and my hair is weighed down.
abigail from Minnesota
This shampoo made my hair so greasy! I really wanted to like it but I just couldn't. It actually looked like my hair was wet. I tried it four times and each time my hair was greasy as a result. On top of that, it smells like chemicals. I love the conditioner though.

Leaves my hair smoother than the HG products, lessen hair loss, however lately some frizzy hair is coming back. So I'm still giving this product a chance to repair my hair, then let's see later, finger crossed.
Millie from Tx
It did smell good not bad like I read in the other reviews, but it did make my hair fall out immediately and it continues to do so. It made my hair soft and in good condition but the fall out is not something I would turn a blind eye to.

Absolutely amazing products
Mcarino from Tucson, AZ
I got my hair done at a salon about 7 months ago and the lady damaged my hair badly with bleach. Lots of breakage, my hair is dry and dull. I've spent the past 7 months trying to repair it. I've tried ALL kinds of products. Some on the expensive side that did nothing for my hair. I found this product and decided to try it,along with the conditioner after reading great reviews. It did not disappoint!! Just the shampoo alone makes my hair feel so soft in the shower. My hair is looking so much healthier, shinier and softer. It's been a long 7 months trying to bring my hair back to life. I'm so glad I found this shampoo and conditioner!! The price is definitely worth it.

Don't like it - dries my hair and I also don't like the smell.
