Initial Thoughts: This shampoo worked well and did not irritate my scalp. It did not blow me away in terms of doing anything special for my hair. This is one I would classify as a good basic shampoo. It gets the job done, but nothing amazing. If I had an oily scalp and drier hair, I'm sure it would have done more for me. But since I don't really fit what this shampoo is trying to treat, it didn't blow me away.
