It did for me. It was subtle, but noticeable. However, that was the result I was after. If you aren't wanting to fade your hair color, you might want to avoid this.

I am a redhead and love these products. I do have thick hair, not really corse, it is straight with wave. I find this shampoo makes your hair shiny and feel healthy. It is part of my summer hair arsenal to fix sun damage and part of my winter arsenal to keep my hair from doing that creepy static thing.

The general rule of thumb with shampoo is to use very little...I use about the size of a nickle-quarter as I have LONG hair. For shoulder length or shorter? Dime sized or less. It doesn't really lather well the first shampoo, but this is actually fine. People get confused by this, but foaming in your hair means you are washing clean hair and stripping it. :)

I have Asian hair that's long, wavy, sort of dry and rough. It's also puffy if I don't straight iron my hair. After just 1use, my hair was immediately softer, smoother and less puffy and wavy. So I think it will work on all types of hair.

Carol's Daughter's products are geared toward coarser hair because they're strong enough, but they're great on finer hair too, particularly dry and damaged hair, they've done a lot to save my damaged curls, and this is my go-to C'sD shampoo. The only thing is the heavier products need to be used sparingly or they can be too heavy and make fine hair look weighed down and greasy.

I have curly, fine hair and have to be super careful what I put in it to avoid a 'drab' curl look...all I can say is try this: Phytojoba Intense Hydrating Shampoo.....I saw how highly recommended it was and bought it and am beyond happy with it. I cannot stop raving about it. I bought the Living Proof full conditioner to go along with it and am also beyond happy with it. Together they have made my hair shiny, light/bouncy, no frizz and super soft. I hope this works for you as great as it has for me!

It hasn't damaged it. Your hair dresser may have added something else, but really it is the oil. To make it look a little more natural you can simply wash your hair with another shampoo until it goes back to normal...your hair should still have been rejuvinated however by the oil. Hope this helps :)

If you really dislike the look this gives you, consider using a clarifier shampoo or white vinegar diluted with water to strip the oil out of your hair.

My hair is still as curly as ever, but it is not as frizzy...I use this, the conditioner and her hair milk when I get out, then I run a wide tiith comb through it and scrunch as it dries.....I still look like I have a perm. Plus it got rid of that itchy buildup my old conditioner left behind.

This is an organic product and contains nothing that would damage natural texture of your hair. What you are eperiencing is the moisture infused in your hair, not a chemical reaction. This solution is for dry hair I would suggest switching to the Tui or Rosemary Collection if you want to maintain a more natural texture, or better yet, check out the Carol's Daughter site for more details on whats best for your hair texture.

Any of the Hair Milk products, (please don't use the term nappy) say course. Hair is hair, no matter the t exture. Use the Kizzi for edges and to lay it down, and Carol's Daughter has a children's line as well. Check Sephora and the Carol's Daughter website. Also the hair butter too.

Using the Rosemary Mint Purifying Shampoo with the Conditioner will give the best results. The shampoo naturally purifies hair without damaging it like most purifying shampoos on the market while the conditioner really brings the softness and shine (especially when you wait the full 5 minutes and rise the conditioner out with cold water)

I'm also post-meno w/dry, itchy scalp but I'm white and this was NOT the shampoo for me but you might like it...my hair is normally straight and medium course and this shampoo made it FLAT and no body but it DID make my hair soft and totally soothed my scalp (it tingles your scalp when you use it-- feels so GOOD!). It has very little suds, so you have to be patient to work it through all your hair.

So... if you are trying to relax curls, alleviate dry frizzies, and soothe an itchy flaky scalp it's a good product for you.

For dry and itchy scalp, try the Josie Maran Argan Oil (not the hair serum but the 100% Argan Oil bottle). Argan Oil also helps with dry brittle hair, split ends and adds shine.

My mother has locs and she swears by Carol's Daughter Loc Butter. That's how I got turned on to Carol's Daughter products. My mother has been using it since she 1st started growning her natural hair into dreadlocs. Her dreads are gorgeous and they've never looked dry from day one. I only wish I had the patience & guts she has to wear my hair eu naturale...
I'm not sure what she uses for a shampoo however. But personally, with my own relaxed hair, I love the Rosemary Mint Herbal Shampoo...its not laced with chemicals or synthetic additives. Very hydrating for my on chemically processed hair. So it may do you some good.

The Rosemary Mint will do a little more to clean your hair, and the Khoret will do a little more to weigh it down. I agree with jackplane about rotating this in every other shampoo. I'd suggest Rosemary Mint over the Khoret Amen, but I suppose the biggest difference is the smell. Khoret Amen has a really strong, musky, woody smell that personally, I couldn't stand, while the Rosemary Mint has a softer and fresher, energizing scent.

I use pureology and decided to try this out. Pureology is sulfate free, so if you use products with silicones, the pureology shampoos won't get rid of product build up. That is why I bought this shampoo, because of that benefit. I don't know if I will use this everyday, though.
