First of all, this product IS NOT a regular shampoo, and so if you try to use it like one you won't be happy with the results. It's a co-wash and is meant for wavy and curly hair. It won't lather. Co-wash is something people who follow the "no-poo" (no shampoo) method of hair care use sometimes. This product doesn't have sulfates or other harsh detergents in it, which is exactly what textured hair people need! if you're a curly or wavy haired person who follows the no-poo method you'll probably love this stuff, I definitely do!!
I had a gift card for ulta that I got for Christmas last year and so I decided I would use it to buy a hair care product because I need something that will moisturize my hair and leave it less frizzy and so I read all the great reviews for this and so I thought I would give it a try. When I got it I decided to use it and when I first squeezed it out of the bottle, the smell of the product I didn't really like it has a stinky smell to it and it's kind of a gross smell and it makes your hair smell gross unless you had another type of good smelling moisturizer to it but it does moisturize your hair but it's not that great of a detangler because my hair is long and thick and it doesn't even detangle my hair all that well and my hair is still frizzy after using this stuff too. I kind of wish I didn't buy this or I kind of wish I returned it and got a refund but it's too late now since I threw away the receipt.

I have used this conditioning wash for well over a year. It's gentle on my hair, leaves it shiny and soft, and it's the only wash I use on my hair other than a biweekly hair mask. It's the best wash I've used on my hair. I have wavy hair, but my niece uses this on her thick straight hair and it works great on her hair, too.

I wanted to love this, but it was just too heavy for my fine hair.

My hair is tempermental, to put it lightly. But my hair loves this product. A LOT. And it smells heavenly.

I Use this once a week between normal shampooing to keep my curls moisturized. When used this way, my curls look so nice and shiny. I definitely wouldn't use this back to back as I think it could eventually weigh down your curls but works very well when added into the rotation.

I am 46 and have looked for a product like this my entire adult life. This cowash smells great, a little goes a long way, and it leaves my curls shiny and healthy. I apply, scrub it on my scalp, and leave it on while i do all my other shower stuff and then rinse, leaving my hair so soft. I'm so glad I took a chance on this product.

I don't have curly hair but this was suggested to me because I love dying my hair fun colors and these tend to lose saturation faster. It works great. I even recommended it to my granddaughter who has vivid orange and pink hair. It's kept her colors in beautifully as well.

I'm honestly really disappointed by this product as I had high hopes for it, but it really just turned out to be another completely overrated, overpriced, over hyped hair product (**cough, cough** Olaplex). Like seriously, I've used a $10 drug store cowash that worked better than this. It smells good. I feels nice while it's in your hair… but, afterwards? You might as well have just used a regular shampoo in your hair. Really, I'd consider this to be more of a 2-in-1 shampoo/conditioner (think the ones from back in the 2000s/2010) than an evolved, nourishing conditioning wash. I have fine to medium, frizzy 2c/3a hair, for what it's worth. I also had my mom (fine, oily 2a/2b hair) try this, and she found it to be very drying as well.

Been using for a couple of years and wont use another cowash. Sometimes I can just use this and no conditioner it is so hydrating. My curls love it.
Alyssa from Columbus, Ohio
This product is amazing. I have 2c hair type, so my hair is prone to frizz and stringy curls. This wash not only cleanses, but moisturizes my curls so they come out defined & shiny! I haven't seen my curls have this much definition before. 10/10!
Rachelle from Nevada
Turns out that I've been shampooing wrong all these years. I have semi-hard water and battle oil buildup in the Nevada desert with fine, curly hair (4a I think). I would use detox shampoos followed by deep conditioning masks. But my hair was always flat and my scalp itched. Well, I decided to try a co-wash just to see how it works. Turns out this is exactly what I needed! This washes out buildup and conditions at the same time. I've never seen my curls so hydrated and actually curly in over a decade. I pair this with the in-shower style gel (very small amount) and now I have curls again!! My hair looks thicker too. Thanks Curlsmith! No more silicones!

Wonderful product to clean and moisturize my dry curly hair.
Belianny from New Jersey
I use this product as a regular conditioner and also as a wash&go because it has low percentage of shampoo and it works amazing for me!!, and also it has very clean ingredients♥️ my hair is 3B, colored and really dry for reference
Felicia from Westminster Colorado
I'm so pleased with my purchase. I thought it was my cut but after 1 use my luscious curls are restored. My hair is clean, not stripped, so soft and shiny and no frizz. This product smells good, not overpowering.
Taylor from Greenwood, IN
I absolutely love this Curl Quenching Conditioning Wash! It's actually the best conditioner I have ever used. I can never find something that makes my curls even out after washing and this actually does the job. I will continue to buy this product over and over again because it's so amazing. My hair feels so lightweight and healthy now. I would definitely recommend for anyone with curly hair!

I love using this product on mine and my daughter's hair. I love that It's vegan.
Christie from Columbus, OH
Very pleased with this shampoo/conditioner. Was very moisturizing and I didn't feel like I needed to put a conditioner on after using it. I followed up with the Curl Suffle and the combo was great for someone with HORRIBLE frizz. No breakouts either!
Cloudzy from Harrisburg, PA
The moment I put this product in my hair, I could tell it wouldn't work, and I was right. Every application made my hair dry and tangled my hair! It was an absolute fight in the shower! I plan on returning. Bummed about this.
Tatiyana from Fresno Ca
I loved how it made mg hair feel. Very bouncy curls when rinsed. It definitely makes my hair feel lightweight.
sam from st. louis mo

Tessa from boston ma
it made my curls look pretty nice, but dried out my hair a LOT and tangled it. it also smells very unpleasant. (kind of musty)
Melissa from Texas
My hair has bounced back!!! Curls are healthy, shiny, and stronger!! I love how it detangles and I have no yucky residue!!! My hair smells so good and looks so pretty!!! I feel more confident!!
Aubree from Jacksonville, FL
such a good product. i would recommend to anyone with curly hair. only downside is that you have to use 4-5 pumps if you have thick hair. i reccomend the big bottle & it lasted me 5-6 months. so i would say the big bottle is def worth the money.

I love this stuff, it has greatly helped my hair and scalp; I feel like it is even helping bring back my curls after bleach and dye damage. I let my roommate try it and they loved it so much they got their own. I do think that the fact that it doesn't suds up may turn some people off, but it doesn't bother me.
Susan from Wilkes Barre Pa
Love this shampoo. Sorry to say as much as I purchase , they never have the free sample.
