Most Helpful Positive Review Noughty Wave Hello Conditioner
Firstly, ordered shampoo product but received conditioner product.
I just love smell of this, loving that this product is free of silicones, sulphates, parabens and petrochemicals and mostly that is 97% natural!
Me personally last few years trying to not use any products that are tested on animals and I don't mind to pay little bit more for products that really helping me and are not tested on animals. Plus it's vegan.
I didn't know what to expect from this product but after first use my hair felt so smooth and were very easy to brush.
Only negativity of this product I would say is its opening as you can easily scratch yourself if you have wet hands.
I will definitely recommend this product to my friend!
Most Helpful Critical Review Curls looked great but totally dried out scalp
I bought the Wave Hello Shampoo and Conditioner, plus the Curl Cream, and started using these products about two months ago, in an attempt to manage my wavy (possibly curly hair) - previously I had been using products with sulphates and silicones and since these are not supposed to be curl friendly, I wanted to make a change and see how curly my hair could be after doing research on the Curly Girl method and variations.
My routine with this set of products was to wash about once a week with a little of the shampoo, rinse it out, use a lot of conditioner to detangle, rinse that out, then scrunch in the curl cream, plop the hair for 15 minutes in a t shirt, then diffuse on low heat.
I noticed after a few weeks that my scalp got very dry, itchy, and flakey, but I persisted because my hair looked great, nice curl definition, and way curlier than I expected, and I hoped maybe the scalp issue was a transitional phase after switching products. At around the one month mark I introduced Noughty's Caretaker line because of the scalp issues, but if anything it got dryer. It's almost like my scalp stopped producing oils in response to something in one of these products, near the end of the two months, I went 10 days without washing my hair and my scalp was not oily at all at the end. Itchiness would start immediately after washing, and flakes after a couple days.
I'm pretty disappointed. I really wanted to like these products, but I have to throw in the (microfibre) towel and quit them, there must be something in there I'm very sensitive to.
TL;DR my curls looked great but something about this range dried out my scalp and made it flakey and itchy and miserable. Your mileage will likely vary, and I really hope it does because my scalp has never had such a negative reaction to anything before.

This product did nothing for my hair, weighed it down, made it dry and I even LOST so much hair! I always had to put more then a normal size of shampoo and conditioner in my hair to even notice a difference. Waste of money!
Beautiful, bouncy curls!

I have 3A and 2C curls and I've tried many products over the years. My mom is a cosmologist, so I've always given a lot of thought, effort, and time into making my curls look nice (probably too much). I am a die hard DevaCurl fanatic, and I basically use all of their products, from the Noo Poo all the way to the Supercream; however, I've been reading some bad things lately which has made me want to experiment again with other products, just in case. I picked up Noughty wave Hello Curl Defining Shampoo and Conditioner as well as the Curl Taming Cream. I have to say that I am very surprised at the great results! My hair has nice volume and lift with very natural looking, soft, healthy, defined curls. The shampoo wasn't too bubbly, the conditioner was rich, and the curl cream was thick but not sticky, waxy, or too heavy. You don't have to use very much because a little goes a long way for all three products. I love that the shampoo was light and didn't make me feel like I saw stripping moisture from my hair. I'm not in love with the scent; it has an ocean smell that I think is a bit masculine, but it's still clean smelling. Overall, I think this is a really nice product line. I would rate it along the line with salon quality, professional level products.

I have curly hair and I usually go a few days between washes. When I used this it made my hair feel really gross. I thought maybe I just needed to double cleanse because I had gone a few days longer than I usually do between washes. Nope that wasn't it. This shampoo made my hair feel dirty and damaged. It made my hair more tangled than it already was. I usually detangle my hair in the shower with my fingers and conditioner to avoid breakage and frizz, and even the conditioner was terrible. It did not detangle at all and left huge knots in my curls. Also the smell is not very pleasant, but that's something I could look past if it was a good product. Do not waste your money. Would give zero stars if I could.
Do not buy!!!!!!!!!
Myra from California
I used this product today and the conditioner because I have curly hair. I was washing the shampoo off and noticed chunks of hair coming out of my head. I only used these two products. DO NOT BUY!
Not a fan
HEIDI from Humble, TX
I was really hopeful this would be good for my hair but it is not. I wash every other day as I have with other products but this stuff has been making my hair oiler and flatter
Tania from Undisclosed
Shampoo works great feels a little clarifying but I need that for my fine and oily hair.
Will buy again
Rebecca from Undisclosed
Good but very small bottle
Ck from US
Love the smell, and it definitely does the job in terms of washing. But if you have thick and kinky curls beware that this will run out super fast! At least it's affordable.
Did not wash my hair
Danielle from West Branch, MI
I noticed after washing my hair a few times that my hair would get greasy again not too long after. it might just be with some hair types that it does this with cause I have thick hair that locks in moisture, all I know is I am not buying this again.
Fantastic for the Price!
Jenna from California
I have short wavy/curly hair and this has really revitalized my curls! I pair it with the conditioner and styling cream I love the way that it looks.
Found my perfect product
Elizabeth from Undisclosed
Love this product! What I was using before was discontinued so went on the hunt AGAIN for something that would work with my wavy hair. This is it! Hair is silky and sexy.
Love this brand

Weighs down my hair and makes it greasy feeling
So glad I got this set!
Elizabeth from Undisclosed
Love love love everything about the wave hello line!! My curls have never looked better or felt softer or smelled better! I alternate this with the color bomb shampoo to help the life of my hair color but love the results of the whole line.
Strongest, gross scent ever. Hated it.

Strongest, gross scent ever. Hated it.
JJ SS from California
I have curly hair and I've always struggled to find the right shampoo for my hair. This shampoo is amazing!!! It doesn't weigh my curls down at all and it reduces fizzy. It sucks they don't sell this at the store and it's currently sold out online :/
Megan from Undisclosed
The consistency takes getting used to but I assume it's because it doesn't have all the chemicals that you try to avoid with the curly girl method. Works great.
Will keep buying
LaDonna from Undisclosed
Love this shampoo. Like all of these products it delivers on curl care and definition
Mariah from Undisclosed
This is the product I liked the LEAST out of the entire line I purchased. I only use shampoo on my roots as it strips my dry ends too much and this made my roots so overly dry it was like straw. And it was frizzier than before thanks to the lack of moisture. I have wavy hair that can be moody but this stuff was in extreme disagreement with my hair, so it's not for me.
I wanted to like it...
Lauren from Undisclosed
Cleanses well, but strips my hair of all moisture and leaves it brittle. I had better luck with the To The Rescue line. My hair is naturally curly, type 3A, low porosity, and baby fine.
Nina from Colorado
I used this for all of two days and my hair felt like straw afterwards. It did help somewhat with curls, but it was way to drying to be worth it. It doesn't lather so it felt like I wasn't even washing my hair. I won't be buying again.
I'm ordering this again love it
Helen from Undisclosed
Just a little bit on my hair leaves it soft .
Perfect Shampoo for Fine Wavy/Curly Hair
Sassafrass from North Carolina
I have fine, high porosity, highlighted wavy/curly hair, and this is the best shampoo I have used. I've tried everything from drugstore brands to name brands, but this outshines them all. It cleanses without stripping, doesn't weight my hair down, and I believe it helps with definition. I used this in conjunction with the Wave Hello Conditioner and Primer, and all three are magic.
My holy grail!
Ashley from Undisclosed
My new favorite product line and the smell is so fresh and clean! My curls have never looked better!
Doesn't lather much
Crystal from Florida
I love that this product and vegan and somewhat affordable but I wish that it would lather up more so I don't have to use as much. You have to be very careful when squeezing it out because it's runny and will leak out of your hand.
