Shima Hair Repair Shampoo
The cleansing ingredient is Cocamidopropyl Betaine.
I've been using it for the last 4 months, and consider it a keeper for my very dry, porous hair.
The shampoo is considered a protein shampoo and its suggested use is one to two times per month. I made sure my hair felt like "straw" to determine the shampoo's effect, and left it on longer than the directions stated, just about eight minutes longer. I was surprised at how soft my hair was after rinsing out the shampoo! It's the softness that I feel after I DC my hair.
The consistency is thick, but spreadable. The color is pink, and the scent is fresh and light (to me). I got two and a half uses from the bottle, but I have a lot of hair! For example, when I DC, my hair always needs at least 6 and a half ounces of conditioner to cover my entire hair.
It comes in an 8 ounce bottle and costs $14.99. It is available on shimahair.com.
