I bought this shampoo after reading good reviews from others. I have used this two or three times now and I can't say I like anything about it. First of all there is very little lather. Maybe lather doesn't matter, but lather makes me feel like it is 'doing' something. Without lather it just feels heavy in my hair. Then when I go to rinse my hair I don't feel like I am getting it all out and I don't have that squeaky clean feeling. I also don't care for the smell (not much of one anyway) .... OKAY, I just googled if lather is important in shampoo and this is what I learned. Since this shampoo is sulfate-free, it will feel different. HOW TO USE SULFATE FREE SHAMPOO PROPERLY
Thoroughly wet your hair before applying sulfate-free shampoo. This also goes for regular shampoo but it’s so necessary for sulfate-free shampoo. If your hair isn’t completely soaked, it’s hard to apply the product and distribute it through your hair.
Use less product than you think. Most people expect shampoo to lather and when sulfate-free shampoo doesn’t they apply more product. Although it won’t foam up, it’s still working to clean your hair.
Apply more water, instead of more product. If you’re struggling to get any lather to wash your hair with sulfate-free shampoo, apply more water instead of more product. The water will help activate the shampoo and spread it through your hair.
Shampoo twice. Without the foaming action, it’s harder to remove the dirt and oil from your hair. The second shampoo really lifts it out and cleans your hair. Plus you’ll find the second shampoo lathers up more easily.
Rinse your hair thoroughly. Make sure to really rinse your hair. Any residue from the sulfate-free shampoo will make your hair feel heavy. So, IN CONCLUSION - maybe I need to give this another shot and/or compare it to other sulfate-free shampoo, but bottom line as of yet I don't feel like I get a shiny, clean feeling with this.
