don't kno how this reply turned out to be this long. i only meant it to be one sentence. lol
i use it and love it. i use it as needed (cause i only shampoo when i feel my hair is trying to tell me it's dirty...once every week and a half maybe. sometimes less sometimes more). doesn't strip my hair a bit. but then again i'm not a lather rinse repeat type of girl. the second lather is usually what strips the hair...once is enuf then i scrub with conditioner if i still feel a lil dirty.
when i shampoo i apply the poo directly to my scalp and GENTLY but firmly scrub-a-dub-dub. i use the one with the green label and yellow top. (for dry damaged hair or something like that. it's very gentle and you cant beat the price for a gentle shampoo...i get mine for like $3.99.) at least try it and see if you like it!
