    Great shampoo

    Posted by Sue on 11th Jun 2020

    This shampoo is really lovely. It smells fresh and clean and a little goes a long way. It took a couple of washes to get used to the lack of lather but my hair feels clean, soft and nourished without the need for conditioner. My hair could go bonkers in these strange times but the shampoo has really helped. Thank you.

    Excellent shampoo

    Posted by Vicki on 6th Jun 2020

    This is the only shampoo that I have come across that has totally natural ingredients. I initially bought it on recommendation, because I was getting patches of eczema on my scalp. I used it in combination with Odylique Ultra-balm. The eczema cleared up and also my hair was in really good condition.
    I now use the shampoo on itʼs own without the ultra-balm. No more scalp problems and it leaves my soft without the need for any conditioner. All my family now use it and would never go back to other, commercial shampoos.

    Gentle, natural leaving hair feeling beautiful

    Posted by Kceniya on 4th Jun 2020

    I would highly recommend this shampoo to anyone looking for a gentle and honest way to treat their hair. My hair felt nourished, clean and well looked after after trying this shampoo. Itʼs natural so doesnʼt lather up as other chemical shampoos, so you have to massage your scalp a bit to spread the shampoo which is not so bad! Recommended to leave it in a few minutes to allow the nutrients to soak in, perfect! I felt harmonised and relaxed using this shampoo, knowing I was looking after myself and the environment.

    Fantastic, gentle cleansing shampoo - ideal for menopausal hair!

    Posted by SallyW on 27th May 2020

    I had been searching for literally years for a gentle shampoo that didnʼt dry out my scalp...particularly during menopause. I always had a dry patch of skin at the top of my forehead but it wasnʼt dandruff, it just looked like there was a lack of moisture. Shampoos were stripping the natural oils and I was about to give up, then I discovered this little beauty! Gentle Herb Shampoo is great - you donʼt need a lot to cleanse your hair, add more water to make a little go a long way. You also donʼt need to use conditioner because the shampoo is so gentle - try it - youʼll notice the difference and how soft your hair is afterwards.

    10/10 Odylique - I recommend this to friends or anyone with skin concerns whoʼs fed up of the typical high street brands and is ready to try something new.

    First Class product

    Posted by Teri on 26th May 2020

    Like a lot of the other reviewers - I suffer from eczema & have been looking for a shampoo that has no nasties in it = here it is. This is wonderful product, my hair feels clean & my skin feels better for using it especially on my neck (3 weeks of usage so far). Itʼs a shame there is not a bigger bottle available as you need to use a bit to get a good lather. I would highly recommend using this gentle shampoo to anyone but especially to those who have eczema!

    Gentle Herb Shampoo

    Posted by TRACEY on 12th May 2020

    My hair has got really use to this shampoo, I am not going to lie, it did take me a while though. You almost feel that initially it is stripping your hair, itʼs so squeaky clean. Does feel quite knotty (I have long hair) but surprisingly I have now mastered a good comb through starting at the ends with my detangler comb. Once dry it is shiny and full of body feels like hair should. I have used organic shampoo & conditioner for over a decade, but I guess my conditioner must have had something unnatural in it because my hair always felt silky, but it got greasier and weighed down quicker. I do have a beautiful leave in organic conditioner but I only put on the ends of my hair when itʼs dry and voila hair is healthier coupled with the shampoo I am really happy.xx

    Best natural shampoo

    Posted by Sara on 10th May 2020

    Iʼve tried several different brands of natural shampoo but this is my favourite by a long way. Its the only one that doesnʼt give me an itchy scalp. My eldest daughter loves it, she has very sensitive skin and this is the only shampoo sheʼll use as it causes her no reaction at all. Perfect thank you

    Amazing for fine hair!

    Posted by Agne on 29th Apr 2020

    I usually use shampoo bars to eliminate plastic, but after a sample of this came with my usual skincare stuff, I had to make a compromise and switch to this. My hair is fine, but I have a lot of it, so it gets greasy and loses volume quickly. This, however, makes it squeaky clean, gives it volume and my hair lasts easily for couple of days without dry shampoo. What I like the most is how natural it feels (and obviously is), I had similar effects with deep cleansing shampoos, but they always smell a little too strong and have a slimey texture. This stuff is pure gold.

    Who needs biotin?!!

    Posted by Amanda on 10th Apr 2020

    This shampoo has given my hair a whole new lease of life! I have very fine hair which was previously weighed down by other shampoos and conditioners. This shampoo has dramatically increased the volume of my hair while also allowing itʼs natural curl to come alive! I do not need to take hair supplements any more, this product is incredible!

    New favourite!

    Posted by Nadia on 5th Apr 2020

    Having tried a number of natural/organic shampoos, this is easily the best. It has worked wonders on my dry ends and the fact that you donʼt need a separate conditioner is a bonus. Love it!

    My scalp is soothed, my roots less oily and ends less dry. All natural, free of nasties and delivers its promise

    Posted by Lauren on 10th Mar 2020

    I was looking for an all natural, nasties free shampoo that would soothe and calm my itchy scalp. I have had a lot of hair loss and my scalp was left very sore as a result and has always been itchy and irritated over the years. I wanted a shampoo not just free from all the plethora of bad ingredients found in the majority of shampoos on the market but I also wanted something all natural and that could stop the itching and nourish my hair. If that is what you are looking for too then I would highly recommend this shampoo. It does not go wildly foamy like a normal shampoo but with gentle massaging and spreading of the shampoo through the hair starting at the scalp and working down to the ends this shampoo will deliver what it promsies. I always start my shower with putting the shampoo in first and then rinse it out last so it has time to do its work and that seems to work well. I have very fine hair so the mositure is enough for my ends but if you have very thick hair you might wanna rub some of the ultra rich balm onto the end of your hair whilst it is damp after you have washed it to give it that added mositure.
