Jun 18, 2013 - IT HAS C14-16 OLEFIN SULFONATE WHICH IS HARSHER THAN SULFATES I was really looking forward to using this shampoo as it says mild enough for every day use. This is NOT true. I read on the bottle that it was sulfate free, so I assumed it was mild, but once I washed my hair, it was really dry and squeaky clean. It just felt worse than my regular sulfate shampoo. So I researched on the net and I was right! It has c14-16 olefin sulfonate which is considered "very harsh" vs sulfate which is considered "harsh" on a popular curly hair website. Google the name "c14-16 olefin sulfonate" and you can see for yourself. The shampoo does clean, and I'm sure it cleans all the build up from other products, but if it's a clearing shampoo, it should be advertised as such. Instead, it makes users believe it's mild and "moisturizing", and it's not. I don't like deceptive advertising, so I won't be buying this product again.
