Nice earthy patchouli smell, lathers w/1 pump, more hydrating than Tea Tree Special Shampoo
Reviewed in the United States on September 4, 2018
I hate flowery and fruity-smelling shampoos. They give me a headache. This isn't that way at all. It's more like an earthy, 70's patchouli fragrance, but not overbearing. It also lathers well with just one pump of product. It doesn't dry my hair and my colorist says it's safe to use. I've used the regular version of the product (Tea Tree Special Shampoo) as well--the one that's not Lavender Mint--and it has a stronger Tea Tree smell that's more medicinal-smelling and it also seems to make my head tingle more after using it. These aren't bad things--they're just different than this product. The original version is more drying on my hair than this one, though.
If you like earthy smells and have dry or damaged hair, then go with the Lavender Mint Moisturizing version over the original.
Oh and I received authentic product. I think maybe people are thrown off by Paul Mitchell's logo not being on the label, but it's marketed under their "Tea Tree" logo, not Paul Mitchell's.
