The REVIEW: First off this is a sulfate shampoo, I was sent 3 bottles by a friend of mine form the USA by accident. She was meant to send been the conditioner instead. Anyways I gave a way two of the three bottles as I though there was no way I will get around to using up all three; plus the other shampoos I already have….man now I am having second thoughts lol >.<

Now let me give a few points on this shampoo, it is nice rich consistency (medium thickness), it has a beige/creamy colour. I must say this shampoo smells great, it has champagne / vanilla smell. it is very subtle, really nice……..


Anyway, I decide to try this about 2 wash session ago, I section my hair into four large sections <—This the way I wash my hair always. I then apply the shampoo to my scalp only whilst my hair is still dry SEE HERE I do it this way as I ensure that the shampoo gets only on the scalp as that is where I want to remove any excess build up. I work on each section at a time parting them into smaller section an massage the shampoo into my scalp on dry hair.


Upon completion of working through each sections as stated above, then proceed to rinse the shampoo out working on each section at a time, I focus the shower head on my scalp and let the water get the shampoo unto the strand/full length of my hair.

This shampoo cleanse nicely, suds up well when I say nice, I mean it did not strip my hair at all. My hair felt soft, I did notice my hair clump up/shrink, but it felt fluffy and full. I was impress…… It did felt like ‘cashmere’ it was indeed a silky experience. Shocking right? Especially from a shampoo that contain both [Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Sodium Lauryl Sulfate].







I am pleased with this shampoo, I would get more in when I run out, I could easily use this fortnightly and not have an issue or experience dry/striped hair. I state fortnightly as I don’t think I will return to washing weekly with sulfates. I don’t feel the need for it weekly. Besides since reducing how often I use sulfate, I have much softer hair and benefit better from my DC session.

After I shampooed I followed up and DC with Silicon Mix Proteina De Perla <<< Review.
