Most Helpful Positive Review Amazing volume, softness and smell!
First, as soon as I opened the bottle I noticed the amazing scent! I think it is the best smelling shampoo I've had, has kind of a peachy fresh clean smell. From the first time I used it, it felt very soft and lathering in my hair. It also washed out very well and easily. I followed the shampoo with the Kenra Professional Volume Conditioner. Also smelled great, lathered easily and felt soft but not thick in any way. I allowed my hair to air dry (I have thick, semi-curly long hair). The next morning my hair felt super soft and light. I styled it with a curly iron and the volume was great and lasted through out the whole day. Every time I use it I love it more!
Most Helpful Critical Review Formula Changed
I absolutely loved Kenra Shampoo and Conditioner and have purchased it for years and years. I have a mix of straight, wavy and frizzy hair. The old formula would make my hair silky smooth and completely fixed the frizzy issue's that I had. I was able to stop using any other frizz control product. I purchased the new Shampoo and Conditioner which by the way didn't even say it had changed. It is HORRIBLE. My hair is like horse hair after using either one of these and the strong perfume smell is Horrible as well. I noticed the second I put it on my hair that it had changed. When I went to brush my hair it felt like I had been swimming in chlorine all day and was matted together. I emailed Kenra on FB and was basically told that yes the formula changed and that the store should have had signs to let me know it was a new formula. So basically they relied on Ulta to put signs up and barely changed their label. Pretty tricky if you ask me. BRING THE OLD FORMULA BACK, PLEASE!!!!!

The best shampoo I have come accross. I have very fine hair. I had never tried this shampoo but it's great not sure why all the hate.
Why did you change the formula?????
Juanita from North Carolina
I have use the volumizing shampoo for over 15 years. I had male pattern baldness. My hair became thick and I had so many compliments. Since you have changed the new formula my hair is very thin and looks dirty all the time. Looking for a new product! Why couldn't you have left it along????
Oily and flat
chloe from new york
this shampoo leaves my hair looking so greasy after not even 12 hours. it is next to impossible for me to get 2 days out of my hair when i wash it with this when i normally go 3-4 days between washes when using other shampoos. the oily feeling and look that is left behind by this shampoo works directly against the goal of volume that i was hoping to achieve while using this shampoo.
Danielle V from Grand Prairie, TX
Left my hair feeling like there's left over product in it ... like sticky. I thought maybe I hadn't gotten all the shampoo out so I washed with it another time and same thing. My daughter said the same for her as well.
My husband actually uses this shampoo... won't use anything

Makes hair seem fuller!
I will definitely buy this product again.

The only problem I had was that my pump on my shampoo was completely broken. I did find something to use to get the shampoo out but these bottles are so big (which I love) that you really need the pump that comes with the bottle for efficient use.
This product works, really works
Flash from Florence, KY
I didn't see much of an improvement in my hair until day 3, that's when i noticed how much body and wave is showing back in my hair. It makes styling my hair very easy, my hair looks different every day which i enjoy the surprize.
Tanya Jo from Buffalo NY
Love this shampoo! It has a nice light scent to it and makes my hair a bit thicker feeling. I'm here to buy more.

Bpaps from Fort Myers Florida
I've been using this product for at least 10 years. I love it and although I have made 'mini' changes over the years. I always go back to this product. I can't imagine anyone having a negative comment.
Bring back the original formula
Margo from Noblesville in
I miss the creamy shampoo that I used to purchase. The new clear formula requires more shampoo to get a good suds and doesn't smell as good. I don't think it cleans as well either.
HORRIBLE NEW FORMULA - Never will buy again
Unhappy EX Kenra user from Destin FL
I don't understand why companies change an already perfect product. I've used Kenra shampoo for over 15 years, not any longer. From reading the reviews, apparently many others share my opinion.
Bring back the original!
Callaway Girl from Gwinn, MI
I have used Kenra volume shampoo for years. The new formula is nothing like the old. I will not purchase it again. Very disappointed !!
Don't like the new formula!
Leaving from Fort Worth, TX
I loved the old formula, I hate the new formula. My hair doesn't feel clean and there's no volume. I'm going to find something else that works better. Sorry to go but they changed and it wasn't for the better.
Best Volume Shampoo
Inez from Everett, WA
I love that it helps with oily scalp. I just wish the scent would be a bit better. Will continue to purchase.
Will never buy this again!
EKH from Calif.
I loved the original formulation...Used it for over 15 years. This new product leaves my hair limp, lifeless and greasy...no body at at. Please go back to old formula!
The shampoo and conditioner were equally bad. Spent too much money on this unusable product.
GO BACK TO OLD FORMULA
CatMom from Jasper, GA
The new formula or whatever they changed is awful! Have used this for years & loved it, but not now. Won't be buying anymore unless they change back.
new is not better
cclark from NC
you have to give a star to leave a review, but I've been using Kenra for over 10yrs. apparently someone thought change was due. well you get your change, you've lost me as a customer. I'll pass this along as well. greasy hair is nowhere!

Left my hair greasy and flat
Rachel from Georgia
I love my Kenra hairspray and was told how great the shampoo was - I wished I would of read the reviews first! My hair was so greasy as the scalp and so dry at the ends after only a few uses!
I won't buy it anymore unless the original comes back
Original is Best from CA
Bring back the original Volumizing Kenra shampoo. It smells better and feels better on your hair. Why did you change something that was great already? I've tried the new formula for a while to see if I could grow to like it. The answer is no. I'm switching to another shampoo.
New formula is completely different and BAD
CB from CA
The new formula (with the word volumizing in PINK on the bottle) is not good, at least for me. It dries out my hair and does nothing for volume. My hair feels unhealthy after several days of using it. I used the original formula for the past 15 years, I was a very loyal customer. Feeling very sad about this change and very much hope Kenra will bring the original formula back.
not the same
leeeleeee from tennessee
I've used this shampoo for years. It's not the same, and it's terrible. Leaves my hair feeling dirty and flat, definitely not clean and full of volume, like it used to. Currently in search of a new shampoo

I LOVE Kenra products but with this new formula, my hair has been falling out.
