Rated 4.45 out of 5 stars
I have sensitive skin and I'm allergic to fragrances so I'm always looking for new hair care products that won't irritate my scalp. This is the reason that I have switched to using clean beauty products. However, even within the clean beauty community, it's very hard to find fragrance-free products. I'm very happy to share that the Color Awakening Hairbath has worked well for me. It has the perfect amount of lather for my 2C, 3A, 3B curls and most importantly it has not caused any irritation or itchiness on my scalp or overall skin. I would definitely repurchase this product. Unfortunately, I cannot say the same for it's counterpart, the Color Radiance Daily Conditioner, because it immediately irritated my skin upon application. I wish the conditioner didn't include Citronello, Linalool, or Limonene in it's ingredients. I'm pretty sure these three are the culprits of the irritation I experienced. These three ingredients are not in the hairbath, which is why I believe that the hairbath does not cause me any irritation. Innersense, can you please make a product line that is also free of common allergens? Your products are such high quality, but many of us can't continue to use most of them because of fragrance allergies. If you were to have a line that does not have Citronello, Linalool, or Limonene in its ingredients, that would be even more revolutionary!!
I've been using this color awakening line for the last 2 weeks. I've been using natural hair care products for years but I just sometimes think my balayaged blonde hair is a bit dry/damaged on the ends and could look better. I wash my hair every other day and air dry. My hair is fine, but I have a lot of it and it's slightly wavy. I love the smell of the shampoo. I don't love the smell of the matching conditioner which is very floral. It sort of reminds me of some sort of shampoo from the 90s so I deal with it. It gives me a bit of nostalgia. Anyway, my hair doesn't look much more hydrated than my previous go-to natural shampoo by 100% Pure. The biggest thing I've noticed is that I lose a TON of hair when I shampoo and condition. I tested out my theory and washed my hair with Innersense on Sunday. I saved the wad of hair that was stuck to my drain. I washed my hair today with my old shampoo and I lost about half the hair with my old shampoo. That makes me really scared to continue using it.

After doing a lot of research I bought the whole product line trying to make the switch to cleaner products.
However these products left a heavy build up/greasy feeling on my hair and somehow also made my hair frizzy. I lived in SE Asia at one point and didnt have frizzy hair like what I had after using this.
Overall underwhelming experience especially at this price point.

I have 3a curls, at first this shampoo was a learning curve. As I like a lather to my shampoo but after I figured out how to use it best for me. I will never change!

I wash my hair 2x/week and use this mask right after all over on scalp and hair. I don't like spending much money on any kind of mask/scrubs/anything that goes straight down the drain, but this mask is now a staple in my hair routine. Very soothing and hydrating for my coarse/dry hair & scalp.

Been using this hairbath for years. For those who say they need to use a lot of product - you are supposed to take a small amount and add a bunch of water to make a lather and then apply to hair. It does not have sulfates to make bubbles for you.

The Color Awakening Hairbath has helped keep my colored hair soft with lots of shine. It does not weigh my hair down, it keeps its bounce!

I have naturally high porosity hair that craves hydration and moisture. I tried this in shower after using the hair bath and i was not impressed. Didnt give me a ton of slip amd didnt feel like it was doing much but when i rinsed out i couldnt believe how hydrated my hair felt. The parts of my hair that kinda curled but stayed frizzy had definition. A little goes a long way.

I tried this several times, I don't really see any type of difference in moisture in my hair. It doesn't help with tangles either barely any slip.

I wash my hair once a week. I oil my hair then use this as my first cleanser and then their hydrating shampoo as my second. Follow this with conditioner. Innersense products are truly amazing and my hair has never felt better. I'm a strawberry blonde with color treated wavy/curly hair

Wanted to love it, but it leaves my hair super dry and staticky. It also doesn't smell great after just one day, so I can't go longer than 2 days without washing. Noticed more hair shedding as well. Shipping took way too long as well. At least 10 days.

This shampoo and conditioner are great so far for my hair. I have naturally curly, frizzy hair which I straighten sometimes and this set along with the leave in cream moisturize my hair very well without leaving any film residue. The combo of three products makes my hair soft and shiny. I also have a sensitive scalp (psoriatic scalp) and this doesn't irritate it.

I decided to fully jump in with these products after a curl specialist who cut my hair recommended this line. I did my normal wash day (1x a week) and loved the smell and how light my hair felt, but I had to put the styling products in everyday because my hair looked dry and frizzy the morning after. I sleep with a satin pillow case and never had to apply products daily with any other line. On my next wash day, I have never had so much hair come out. I had so much hair wrapped around my fingers, I lost a lot of hair. My hair was dry, it felt like straw, it was breaking and it looked lifeless. I now have $160+ worth of products I will never use again because it did all this damage to my hair. I bought Quiet Calm Curl Control, Inner Peace Whipped Creme Texturizer, Sweet Spirit Leave In Conditioner, Hydrating Hair Mask, Color Awakening Hairbath, Color Radiance Daily Conditioner in January 2023. All it took was to use these products for ONE week to do what it has done.

I absolutely love the smell of this shampoo after I emulsify it in my hands. FYI a little goes a long way. It leaves my hair feeling soft and clean. I'm about to purchase my second bottle.

This is the first and ONLY shampoo I've ever used that doesn't irritate my eyes and it also improves the texture and overall appearance of my fine hair. PLEASE don't reformulate or discontinue this product. It's GREAT. Rachel

Same review as the Color Radiance Daily Conditioner. Thanks to exclusive Innersense use, I have arrived at healthy hair, as my stylist told me at my last cut.
Jennifer R. from Undisclosed
I'm learning to like this. Doesn't lather as much as my L'Oréal rosemary shampoo but the combination works great for me!!
Donna N. from Undisclosed
Wonderful shampoo! I had been using natural hair products before so I was use to the shampoos not lathering as much. For anyone trying it out for the first time I do think it will take some time to "detox" from chemically based products. You do need to put the shampoo in your palm first and work up a lather and then massage into your hair and scalp. I am very pleased with how shiny and smooth my hair has been using Innersense products. I love how my hair feels nourished and healthy. Great products!
