was also pleasantly surprised at how SHINY my hair was! I guess all that caked-on hair product wasn’t allowing my flaxen strands to shine through Now you pretty much have to wear shades to even look at my hair! lol. Not really. But it’s definitely shinier and bouncier….which is EXACTLY what I was hoping as really pleased with this shampoo. It felt GOOD to actually use something on my scalp that had a big of an exfoliant action to it. My scalp felt tingly and clean. I DEFINITELY noticed more volume and lift to my hair after using.
