Darlene Schiller – Pittsburg, PA

Tell us about the packaging and application. Was this product easy to use?
[The] packaging and application were very easy to use!  I liked the push top lid.

Did you like the smell of this product?
The scent isn’t my favorite.  It’s a bit too tropical and sweet for me.

Was your hair smoother after three weeks?
I didn’t notice that my hair was smoother but [it] definitely seemed fuller.

Did it reduce your color loss?
It did a great job keeping my hair color looking vibrant.  The product did not strip my color away.

Did it add volume, lift and shine?
I have very fine hair and after using this shampoo [I] noticed more volume and lift in a very short time.

What was your overall experience with this product?
The product was very good.  I love how it lathers with just a dollop of shampoo.  I would use it again with no hesitation but I will most likely stay with my Aveda product as I prefer the fragrance.

Would you purchase this product for $19.95? Why or why not?
$19.95 is a bit steep.  $15.95 would be a better price point for me.

Would you recommend this product to other FOFs?
Yes.

Barbara Feist –  Bloomington, IL

Tell us about the packaging and application. Was this product easy to use?

[It was] okay.

Was your hair smoother after three weeks?
No. I only used [it] six times.

No.

What was your overall experience with this product?
[It was] hard to rinse out and left [my] hair coarse and tangled.

Would you purchase this product for $19.95? Why or why not?

Marne Rogers – Asheville, NC

Tell us about the packaging and application. Was this product easy to use?
Shampoo is easy to use.  That’s a no brainer.

Did you like the smell of this product?
[The] fragrance was inconspicuous at best, which is just the way I wanted it.

Was your hair smoother after three weeks?
My hair is weirdly curvy.  Left on it’s own there will always be a mess of irregular temporary frizziness that smooths out later in the day or the second day. So no, I didn’t have much improvement in this area, but I didn’t expect it either.

Did it reduce your color loss?
[Color loss] is not a problem for me, but it may have been marginally better than other shampoos for color treated hair.

Did it add volume, lift and shine?
Yes, yes and yes.  In all three areas I noticed real improvement.  I noticed significantly less breakage and hair [loss]. I comb my hair out in the shower with conditioner on it and noticed 1/4 to 1/3 the hair loss.

What was your overall experience with this product?
Excellent.

Would you purchase this product for $19.95? Why or why not?
Yes.

Would you recommend this product to other FOFs?
Absolutely, yes.

Vicki Hancock – Brigham City, UT

Tell us about the packaging and application. Was this product easy to use?
Yes.  Plain packaging (in a) normal bottle.

Did you like the smell of this product?
I don’t think it really had a smell.

Was your hair smoother after three weeks?
Not really.

Did it reduce your color loss?
Not even.  It made the color loss worse.

Added lots of volume, but no lift and shine.

Would you purchase this product for $19.95? Why or why not?
Not in a million years.  It drained the color from my hair.

Would you recommend this product to other FOFs?
Absolutely not.  Go buy Garnier for ¼ of the cost.

    The best solution for hairloss for me is using RegenePure. One of the
    best hairloss shampoos, and it contains ketoconazole. I always get mine
