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!!!!!

Love love love this product! I have bought this before and will again!
Sooooo disappointed...what happened?
Shelly from Indiana
I am so disappointed with this shampoo...and I just bought 2 large liters of this! The formula has definitely changed as I have always a Kenra product lover. When I first used this, I thought we were out of salt in our water softener. It was hard to even comb through my hair! I couldn't really get it to suds up at all. Not sure what has happened, but I hope the Kenra reps figure things out and bring back the old formula.
Shari from Flower Mound, TX
Used the original formula for many years. Completely loyal to the original formula. Purchased the new formula and threw it away. So disappointed that I had to find a replacement. The original formula was perfect for my hair. No longer a Kenra customer.
WHAT have you DONE!!?
WiscoGal from Wisconsin
This shampoo WAS the BEST volumizing shampoo with an awesome smell. Whatever this new formula is leaves my hair limp and looks gross in no time at all. Bring back the old formula, please! I don't know why brands feel the need to mess with perfection.
I should have listened to the other reviewers!
SC from Roseville CA
It's true - the formula is changed. I didn't think I would mind so much, but it's really bad. It felt like i couldn't rinse it out of my hair. When dry, my hair was limp and felt greasy and sticky. It was so bad one of my coworkers asked me if i had done something to my hair.... Returned as soon as my local store reopened.
New formula is terrible
Mom of Thin Hair from Knoxville, TN
The old formula was awesome. From smell to the way it helped my fine hair. The old formaula did a great job. This new formula is terrible. I emailed Kenra to be told the entire formula changed. WHY?? I mean if it's not broken don't fix it. I had to return and stop using. PLEASE BRING BACK THE OLD FORMULA!!
PLEASE BRING BACK THE OLD FORMULA!!!
Julie from Mobile, AL
I loved the old Kendra volumizing shampoo. This new formula is horrible!! Why change a great thing? I bought a liter bottle of the new stuff not realizing that the formula had changed and literally had to throw it away. It's so bad!
I buy this over and over again!
Syb from CA
I use it to shampoo my hair.
Horrible, don't buy
Dermatica from Florida
I received a travel size of the shampoo and the conditioner. As someone whit very fine, little, flat hair, I'm always trying everything with the word "volume" on its name. First time I use it, I got dandruff and oily hair, like I haven't washed it for days. I leave it and used my usual shampoo for some days till the dandruff was all gone, and decided to try it again. Bad decision, exactly the same happened again. I would never buy this or recommend it to anyone. I read on comments that they changed the formula, I haven't tried the prior but hey Kenra, listen to your clients!
Terrible new formula!
Disappointed from Tennessee
The original formula was amazing! It smelled like banana runts! I am NOT a fan of the new formula and will not be purchasing again. :( Don't fix was isn't broken, Kenra!
New formula is UNUSEABLE.
Elizabeth from WDC
The old formula was incredible. The new formula has a weird consistency, does not smell good, leaves my hair heavy and somewhat oily, without body. It is AWFUL.
Please bring back original formula. The salespeople at ULTA referred me to Living Proof products and I have to say that the volumizing shampoo is very good, the conditioner AWESOME.
I much prefer the original formula!
Brenda from West Virginia
Please bring back original formula for the volumizing shampoo! It was much better at producing volume and cleaning hair!
Great shampoo.. will always use! Wonderful for fine hair!!
Judy from Valencia
Love this shampoo
The original formula was better!!
Big K from North Tonawanda, New York
I have purchased and used Kendra products for many years. The Volumizing Shampoo has always been my go to Shampoo. Upon my last purchase, I thought I bought the wrong one.! No where as rich and luxurious as the Original formula. I'm sad to say I will not purchase this again.
BRING BACK THE ORIGINAL FORMULA
LinaB from Citrus Heights
I love the original formula. I just finished my set from a few months ago, but I am so disappointed that the new formula SUCKS. I switch between AG and Kenra depending on the season and only wash my hair a couple times a week. Now I have to buy new shampoo and conditioner. I am not happy about it:/
Bring back the original formula
Fran from Summerville, SC
I have used Kenra products for many years. Loved the volumizing shampoo and volumizing conditioner until the formulas changed. Now I don't like either of them. Smell is different, feel is different, just doesn't work the same in my hair. Will continue using the hair sprays but will be looking for a different shampoo and conditioner unless the original formulas return. Why waste my money on expensive products that I don't like?
My thin hair loves it
Reggie from Indiana
Best shampoo I've used for thin hair
Bring back the old formula
Ex user from New York
I used this product for many years and loved it. They recently changed the formula and it smells aweful. It leaves my hair dry and brittle. I notified Kenra and they didn't care about my thoughts Now I'm struggling to find a new shampoo. Don't bother buying.
jos from Charleston ,S.C.
I have been using this product for years at least 10 I believe. Im very Allergic to shampoo's/Conditioners and when I find one I stick to it .Well the new Kenra has cost me a lot .Had a severe Allergic Reaction to the New Kenra ...Thanks .Did find a Salon that had some Original and looking for more ! Why Change when it was FANTASTIC before .Bad Decision on Company's choice .Don't fix what is Not Broke !
My daughters and I love this product
MAM from MA
We love this product and the smell is amazing. We all get so many compliments. Only problem is the price.
Please bring back old formula!
ST from North Carolina
I agree with all of the other comments about the new formula. I have used this shampoo for years, but I absolutely HATE the new formula. Will be forced to change brands unless the old formula is brought back.....Please!
no I would not.
Rose from Lodi
This shampoo did not work for me. I found Krusteaz on my scalp - flakiness. And my hair got dirty early.
I would not buy this product again
Phyllis from Georgetown Texas
Last year I had gotten my first bottle of the volumizing shampoo. I was so happy to had found it. HOWEVER, I bought another bottle and noticed the shampoo had changed. My hair was very dry. I looked at reviews and red that the formula had been changed. So I tried to stay with this line Kenea. however after trying three other shampoos and returning all three I had no choice but to go to another line.
I'm willing to return but only if the formula returns!!!
CHANGE IT BACK
Kristen from Burlington, MA
Ive been using this shampoo for 8 years. I absolutely loved it and it has been my holy grail from my freshman year of highschool to post college. Now my hair is greasy within one day and dry and frizzy. Terrible terrible new shampoo formula. Please bring back the old formula. I'm so sad
New formula leaves hair greasy!
Jess from Charleston, SC
I used to love this shampoo until the bottle I purchased in December. I've gone from being able to go 3-4 days between hair washes to having greasy hair by the end of the 3rd day! Now I get to go on the hunt for a new shampoo. I don't know why they'd change up a great formula!
