This will be a long review. I experienced allergic contact dermatitis from an essential oil, and when reading up about and what to do, began reading more and more about hair care products causing reactions, especially once you've experienced one allergic reaction and then continue to be exposed. I was disappointed, I buy really high end products that are free of "all the bad things‚Äù but also all have a variety of essential oils. I don't like heavily perfumed, commercial hair care products to begin with and I thought I was using really good stuff (it probably is really good stuff! Just not for me). While searching for hypoallergenic, fragrance free hair care for damaged skin/scalp, I found SEEN and a few other products that looked really promising. Another disappointment was that all these "safe‚Äù products, except for SEEN, marketed themselves for sensitive skin and dermatitis but they all still had essential oils in them. I was nervous about buying SEEN but other than one other brand, it was the only one that seemed like a potential solution, and it was the only one of the two brands that sold mini/sample sizes. I purchased the mini set and it arrived much faster than I expected, which was a great bonus. The packaging is cute. The minis seem pretty mini but wow, does a little go a long way. If you're looking for a product for similar reasons that I was, this is the most important part ‚Äî I used this product three times and these were the results: First use, shampoo lathers great (did not lather so much on my daughter's hair so I think hers was dirtier to begin with). No fragrance, at all. It smells very faintly of the ingredients used to make it, which is to say it smells like what your brain tells you soap smells like. But it's faint and there are genuinely no perfumes, synthetic or essential oils, and it does not leave a fragrance in your hair, which I love. I was concerned, because it lathered so much, that my hair was going to feel really stripped when I rinsed the shampoo but it did not! It felt very smooth and clean (not "squeaky‚Äù, but a wonderful, healthy, gentle clean). Then I used the conditioner, also truly fragrance free. It did not seem very heavy and I was concerned. I have thin/fine, dry, wavy/frizzy, untreated (dye or heat) hair and I usually follow a curly girl regime (very little shampoo, only at the roots, lots of conditioner in soaked hair, twist it up for remainder of shower, rinse most out but leave some in). I felt like I had to use a lot and was going to go through the mini conditioner pretty fast, but if it was a good product, it was worth it. When I rinsed it out, I expected my hair to feel a little dry and squeaky clean. It did not, it felt so healthy-clean-smooth. I was really impressed. Here's what made me even more impressed: 1) while using the product in the shower, my scalp did not sting; with my previous product, it didn't seem to sting or irritate very much I had assumed that I was just stressed out but with SEEN there was a distinct lack of irritation. 2) After my shower, not only did my hair feel great, my scalp had zero pink/red splotchiness that I had become used to seeing even as it still made me worried; I thought that's just how it will be from now on. But my scalp was white ‚Äî no irritation at all. 3) As my hair dried, not only did my skin stay calm and unirritated, and the dermatitis was noticeably less, but my hair dried so smooth and soft with no finishing product, no styling, just air dry. I couldn't stop touching it or looking at it! It was so smooth, shiny, and soft. 4) Amount of hair falling out after that shower, and the next day or two when styling, was noticeably less than usual. I didn't want to write a review until I had used the product a few times, and I'm so glad I waited. The next time I washed my hair, I was worried about going through the conditioner too fast so I thought I'd be clever and use it from roots and down through the first 4-5 inches, and then my previous conditioner down to the ends. When I twisted my hair and wrapped it on top of my head, of course the other conditioner began to drip down to my scalp and saturate through my hair. Within a minute or two my scalp was noticeably irritated and following that shower, some of the splotichness and dermatitis reaction on my scalp and around my ears had returned/flared up, and I lost noticeably more hair over the next few days than the first use. I was bummed, and was pretty sure it was my old conditioner and not SEEN. Today I used the product for the third time, only the SEEN products, and the results are just as great as the first time. I'm kinda mad that all this time, so much of my discomfort (and yes, embarrassment) was caused by this high end natural product that I loved and thought was so good for me. But I'm so grateful I found SEEN and tried it, and it clearly has not only helped my scalp but my hair feels SO GOOD. Love this product, thank you so, so much for developing it.
I wasn't very impressed by any of these three products. The shampoo and conditioner did an adequate job but my hair seemed fluffy and not shiny. I tried using the blowout creme to add shine and definition but it didn't have a noticeable effect. Unfortunately, I think one of the ingredients has caused itchy spots on my face and neck. This isn't acne, but some sort of sensitivity or reaction I've been having to haircare products. I have been seeking out products that don't cause this and was hopeful Seen would be a good option, but unfortunately not. The search continues.

Was hoping this would be a good alternative to my current shampoo and conditioner. I was disappointed because my hair seemed almost oily and not clean after using. I think it would be great for people with highly sensitive skin. No break outs for me after I used it. If you want to give it a try I would definitely suggest getting the travel size. That way you aren't wasting money by buying the full size if it doesn't work for you.

I was reacting to my current shampoo and conditioner looking for an unscented alternative. I bought the travel size to try it and so far after my first wash I can tell my scalp is less itchy and it left my hair feeling refreshed and moisturized. I'm also pairing with the scalp serum and I find that very soothing.
like the blow out cream
I bought the travel trio for my daughter who has similar texture hair as me. The fragrance free blow out cream is the best product on the market that I can find for people like me allergic to fragrance. My daughter loves it too. We have yet to try the shampoo and conditioner that come in the trio.
Love these products! My hair is detangled but not weighed down. I love how these products don't irritate my skin and scalp. This was my first time using a blow out cream but it helped protect my hair from heat styling! Kit lasts about 10-12 washes with medium hair.
My hair feels clean yet not frizzy. Just feels healthy all around.
What an amazing product. Light weight fragrance free and moisturizing!
I am SO impressed with these products! I have suffered from eczema and contact dermatitis my entire life, as well as body acne from my hair products. After a recent flare up, I decided to overhaul my products and I am SO glad I found SEEN. I am thoroughly impressed at how well the shampoo lathers, as I usually find the fragrance free and sulfate free products don't lather well - NOT the case with SEEN. The fragrance free smell is still delightful, and not chemical smelling at all. The conditioner is also great and fantastic that it doesn't clog my pores, as that is usually the hardest product for me to find for that. Finally, I've never used a blow out creme before because I'm always afraid of it weighing my hair down since I have silky, fine hair. Blow out creme did not weigh my hair down and made my hair super soft. I will be re-ordering full size products!
I have very sensitive skin and the trio of products didn't cause any allergic reaction which is great. The only thing I found is that when I use the shampoo and conditioner together my very fine hair is very flat.
Worth the hype and the price
LOVE THE HAIR SERUM
I have the 8oz shampoo and conditioner set. Very very happy with that. I purchased the travel size since I was traveling. I tried the blow out creme and I really liked it. I have to try it again to really test it out. But the shampoo and conditioner are amazing.
Makes my hair feel nice. Can't tell if I'm losing less hair.
Love the products! I'm glad that I got to try a travel size before committing to the full size products. The conditioner and blowout cream took me by surprise. My hair was smooth and workable and I got great volume with the blowout cream. The packaging is really nice, so I wish the containers were refillable. I would have given 5 stars if they were.
So far I'm loving these products. My hair feels super soft and since they are fragrance free, I'm not having migraines.
Great for sensitive skin. It cleaned my hair very well and the blow out cream was great.
As a stylist with allergy issues I'm impressed with your product. The hair feels great although there isn't a hold factor which I wish there was! I bought the travel size to test out, will now purchase the bigger size.
