VERY DISAPPOINTING PRODUCT

1

I would totally agree with other reviews about how disappointing this product is. Like others, I at first thought the wrong product was in the bottle, as its consistency is more like a conditioner or body lotion. It's also very difficult to extract from the bottle. Regrettably, having used twice, I will never use again. The descriptions on the bottle about bringing vitality & volume to fine hair and working into a rich lather are inaccurate in my experience. My hair felt like it hadn't been washed after using and was limp & greasy in appearance - and there was no lather at all! I telephoned one of your shops to ask if an exchange was possible, as this was bought as a gift by my son - a uni student on a tight budget, so I'd feel even worse about putting the product (and the accompanying & also disappointing Lavender Conditioner) in the waste bin. The person I spoke with replied that it obviously isn't suitable for my hair type (which is Fine by the way!) and wouldn't consider offering an exchange.

Best shampoo

5

I love this shampoo - curiously its the only shampoo I have ever tried from all the current natural/organic brands that does not dry my scalp out. It cleans my scalp but leaves it moisturised at the same time. I gave it to my mother to try as she has seborrhoeic dermatitis on her scalp and it helped calm that considerably, so I would recommend it for problem scalps. Maybe not for oily scalps that need a lot of cleaning as its quite moisturising. Its probably easier to use when mixed with water before applying so it creates a lather. I don't bother to do this though, I find it simpler to apply straight from the bottle so there is not much lather, its a bit like applying a cold cream, it still works the same but I end up using a bit more product . I find the lids can be a bit difficult so I just unscrew them and take a blob out. Please don't discontinue this!!!

Fabulous!

I absolutely love this shampoo and don't understand the negative reviews. I have very fine, dry and thinning hair,, this gives me body at the roots and smooths my dry mid lengths. You do need a good amount and then massage into your scalp to work up a little lather but don't expect it to foam like a normal shampoo. This is a cream cleanser and smells absolutely gorgeous too.

Worst product I’ve ever bought

1

This ‘shampoo’ is not fit for purpose. It is described as being for fine flyaway hair; however it is a thick oily concoction which had the effect of making my fine hair greasy & lank and looking as though I hadn’t washed it for a month. I may as well have poured a couple of tablespoonfuls of cooking oil over my head! Like others, I thought it must have been wrongly labelled and was actually a hair conditioner or body lotion. I cannot believe that, despite all the poor reviews over several years, this is still on sale and that the standard response from NYR is still being rolled out. I can only think that those who recommend the product must have very thick, wiry and dry hair & scalp - not the hair type it is being sold as suitable for. Not wanting to waste the not inconsiderable amount of money I’d spent on this product, rather than throw it away, I decided to try it as a skin softener in my bath and it worked a treat! I am normally a great fan of Neal's Yard Remedies as I love the gorgeous old-fashioned scents and blue packaging which is why I was so disappointed with this shampoo

Oily hair after a few weeks

3

I liked this at first and I love the smell, but after a while my hair was feeling really greasy and it wasn't cleaning my scalp properly. I've tried a lot of natural shampoos. I'm loving the new one from Awake Organics. I don't like the plastic either

The shampoo and conditioner are effective, but as has been mentioned in reviews many times before the bottle does not allow easy use, so hard to get the shampoo and conditioner out of bottles. It would appear this has not been addressed for many years. How about selling these products in eco friendly pump dispenser?

Disappointed

Difficult to get out of the bottle, can’t assess how much left in the bottle, need to use large quantity to get thr my hair but it is only shoulder length, too expensive for what it is! Will not recommend this product, same for conditioner

Left hair greasy and feeling unclean.

1

Really disappointed with this. I have fine and fairly flat hair, so thought this might be just the thing I would need for some lightness and volume. But no. I knew it wouldn’t lather well, tried not to use too much product, but have been left with hair looking greasier than I started with. When rinsing, it doesn’t feel like your hair is clean like usual shampoos do. It still feels as if there is a layer on the hair and no amount of rubbing gets it out

Difficult to use

3

It is almost impossible to get out of the bottle. It should really have a pump as it is very frustrating when you are in a hurry. Also, I expected it to be low lather, but it is so low that I couldn’t work it through my hair (which is only shoulder length and not very thick) and ended up using loads. I live in a hard water area, so maybe that doesn’t help. I love Neal’s Yard products, but this is extremely disappointing
