On my 2nd bottle! Was skeptical about the strange "juice" look and the sweet fragrance, but I really love this shampoo now. Will continue to buy! I have oily, thick hair and in the past always used stuff like head and shoulders to get my scalp and hair clean (otherwise it would be itchy and oily in a day). This stuff definitely gets my hair feeling super clean but wayyyy less frizzy because I assume it's not stripping my hair down! It doesn't suds up so much but it is a good shampoo and I can still go 2 days between washes (same as head and shoulders). And the smell… it smells pretty strong but I love it!! And it doesn't linger too badly after you rinse it out. It's quite fruity smelling but I like it a lot. I'm usually averse to fragrance so am surprised I like this one so much (I usually prefer fragrance free). Highly recommend to anyone looking for a clean shampoo!
I have been using this product for about two months now hoping maybe it'll magically get better, but my hair always feels so gross and oily after just one day. I wash my hair one morning, and by the next morning feels disgusting (I am not doing any activities that would cause this, either). I thought maybe I was using too much or too little, so I've experimented with it all. I thought maybe I wasn't getting all of the product out of my hair, but I'll rinse and scrub for a long time, so it's not that either. I really wanted to like this product, but unfortunately there's been drugstore shampoos that have done the job for me better. If anyone has any suggestions/thinks I may be using it wrong, let me know! I spent a lot of money on this shampoo and conditioner and am super bummed they haven't been giving me the results everyone else is raving about.

I was excited about something that targeted oily scalp, but this is not it. It did nothing for controlling oil and the rest of my hair looks dull and stiff. Additionally it smells like dish soap. It performs like $.99 shampoo

I absolutely love this shampoo. It lathers so nicely and it leaves my haor feelimg clean. The scent is also to die for!

Been using this for a couple weeks now and honestly i love it. I've noticed i can go an extra day without washing and my hair still looks great. So i definitely see reduced oil and it gets my hair squeaky clean. Also I've noticed my scalp isn't itchy i think it's because i was using a sulfate shampoo before and this i believe is sulfate free. Overall love this shampoo and i wanna say this yes the first cause I've went through so many and nothings worked for me until this!

I have curly hair, so I don't like to wash my hair more than once a week. This shampoo (I double cleanse) makes it possible for me to go a week without my scalp feeling super oily. Before this, I used another Briogeo shampoo (the repair one), and even though it probably helped strengthen my hair, it didnt help at all with oil control. The fact that this shampoo also exfoliates means I can rely on it to help remove some scalp buildup from my styling products! Fav shampoo I've ever tried

I really liked this product at first as I have a very oily scalp and this helped me get through at least 2 days. I dont usually believe reviewers that talk about extra hair loss, but now I'm one of them. I dont scrub my scalp hard, but I've noticed way more shedding with this product than usual. It's so obvious that it's actually starting to scare me. Plus I've noticed more split ends on the top layers, which isn't something I've experienced before. I like the oil control factor, but I'll be switching to something else now that I've finished the bottle.

This shampoo (and the matching conditioner) are both excellent. They control the oils in my hair without drying my hair or scalp out. I can actually go more than one day without feeling like I need to wash my hair because I'm so oily. My hair is very fine, thinning, and very oily for reference.

nicolecl2 from USA
my hair gets oily very quickly no matter how thoroughly i wash. this shampoo definitely controls the oil for me and i can go an extra day until my hair needs a wash day. it smells great even after my hair is dry and lathers well. unfortunately i go through a lot cause i have long and thick hair, if they made a larger size i would definitely buy.

I had high hopes for this shampoo and conditioner combo since I have an oily scalp with mostly straight hair. It worked well in the first 2-3 weeks that I used it. But after that, it caused a lot of my hair to fall out. A lot more than what I usually shed. Even when my hair was dry, if I ran my fingers through it, I still lost hair when I normally wouldn't. I don't know if I had an adverse reaction to it or not, but I wouldn't recommend this.
J from nyc
I wash my hair about 3x a week , I have oily hair and was looking to make my washes last longer. This product does work and make my hair less oily but i've noticed it causes a lot of breakage at the top of my hair because it's so drying. It's causing me to have a lot of frizz. Might be more effective to use not every wash to not cause the breakage.
Mallory from Minneapolis, MN
I have been through just about every shampoo at Ulta, and I have never found one that is vegan, cruelty free, good for my hair, and actually helps with my oily scalp… until now. This shampoo is insanely amazing, I can now go 3-4 days in between washes when previously my scalp would be greasy the next day when I was using a different shampoo. Unbelievable!!! So good, this is the best Briogeo shampoo in my opinion.
Shan from Wi
This was overdrying for my hair and scalp. A little does go a long way. It has caused my scalp to burn and turn red twice before I realized what caused it. It didn't do this even I used it in the summer. So if your scalp gets dry at at time I would not recommend this.

never had problems with hair products ever... was just looking for something nice to cleanse my scalp and happened to stumble across this. at first i liked it, but after about a week or so my whole scalp was in pain and scabbing over. i was bleeding, my scalp was oozing, and it smelled!! will never purchase anything from this brand again. had to go see a doctor because it got so bad. they though i had impetigo, but it turned out to be an allergic reaction! beware!
smg from san diego, ca
not sure how i feel about this. one thing is for sure—smells great and little goes a long way! but i honestly didn't see much of a difference in oil control after the 2nd week of use.
Taylor from Colorado Springs, CO
I never write reviews— but this product deserves one! This shampoo is magic. It smells delicious and makes my hair look gorgeous. I'm obsessed!!
Emery from Louisville, KY
This shampoo is very good at cleaning your scalp. You don't need too much which makes the shampoo last a while. If you have oily hair, this shampoo is for you. On top of that, it smells very nice.
Noe from Pico Rivera, Ca
I like the way it's helped with my oily hair, I just don't like the residue it leaves on my hair.

If anything this made my hair oily!! I was so excited to try this, but unfortunately it did not work. I woke up the next morning to very oily hair and I don't put conditioner on my roots.
Sam from Phoenix, Arizona
This product is a really nice shampoo, a little watery but lathers nicely. I didn't like it because it didn't really control oil, and it dried out my curls a bit. Would be great for oily straight hair, but not for drier curlier hair types.
Jmp from IL
I have very fine, thinning and oily hair. This shampoo smells great but every time I use it I have a bad hair day and it doesn't do anything for me at all. I had high hopes due to the reviews but I would skip this if you have a similar hair type because it doesn't help with oil control at all.
Kenzie from Idaho
I have been trying to fix my greasy hair for about a year now, tried so many things (hair training, various shampoos/cond, double/triple shampooing, probiotics, rice water, exfoliating scalp, etc) and nothing has worked!
I just recently tried this shampoo and saw no difference from it. Just want to let others know in case you're having a similar issue to mine.

I can't say enough good things about this. I bought this for my daughter who has incredibly thick hair and needs a dandruff shampoo but has such a sensitive scalp it seems to make it worse if possible. This has completely cleared up her dandruff problem. Made her hair so lustrous and shiny people ask her what's different. All from just a shampoo. It also smells amazing!
