I start out this review with a bad taste in my mouth. No, I didn’t swallow some of the shampoo while washing my hair. It’s just that this product is positioned as an “Active Naturals formula” which is irrelevant, if you ask me. And you can pretty much ignore the hype abouut it being “infused with balancing seaweed extract”
But here’s what you should know: unlike the vast majority of shampoos on the market this one is based on the mildest surfactant money can buy (Sodium Cocoyl Isethionate)and includes some pretty darn good conditioning agents. It’s probably not a good enough 2-in-1 that you can skip your regular conditioner, but it’s not bad. Best of all it’s not that expensive. I would recommend this to anyone who’s interested in mild cleansing and conditioning at a reasonable price.
