    I really like this shampoo--a small amount gives a lot of lather. It makes my hair feel soft and that's good for my curly/often dry hair.

    Never leaving this shampoo again!!

    Three years ago I left Paul Mitchell and used ethnic products on my hair. The ethnic products made my hair feel weighed down during the summer. I found myself washing my hair every three days just to get the oil and dirt out. This also caused my hair to break off despite the change in my diet. I decided to go back to Paul Mitchell and have been using it for the last two months, and I forgot how this shampoo made my hair feel so soft and not weighed down. I see growth happening, (I have my bangs back, and my hair is getting thicker in the back once again.) This truly is a MOISTURE BALANCE shampoo, even in 100 degree weather I now wash my hair once a week!! I use the Original line including the Original Leave-in Conditioner. (Use a very little bit of the Leave-in so hair is not sticky.) My hair feels fantastic!! I follow through daily with the Awapuhi Moisture Mist, and go on my way. I see less breakage (not so many hairs on the floor) and more growth!! Thanks for making such a FANTASTIC shampoo for hard to manage hair types!!

    It is a clean product that does not weight down my hair.

    This is the perfect shampoo for my hair which is very hair which is very fine and the opposite of thick for sure. I use the detangler conditioner first on my dry hair and leave on for 5 minutes than wash with this. I can now purchase these two products at Ulta Beauty Supply in Denver, CO

    Awapuhi Shampoo

    I love this shampoo! It smells terrific. I have fine hair and this helps add volume and body. It's nice to have a really great product that isn't tested on animals. I've been a Paul Mitchell fan for decades and always love trying out the new products.
