This is the best...So far I love it...I usually have oily hair by 5 PM after I wash it in the morning, also I did follow up with a tea-tree shampoo, so I'm not sure if its this shampoo alone or if its the combination of the two, but either way it was a cheap tea tree shampoo, I would recommend this to all my fine Asian oily hair girlies...I have extremely oily fine hair and I live in California (the water here is super hard and there will be a lot of mineral build up in your hair follicles), first I was using head and shoulder to rid the build up but I heard its bad for you, so researched and this product came across, and I'm so happy it did

Get the job done...My hair LOVES it...I think it is great but I would never use it as my regular shampoo I would maybe use this 2 to 3 times a months otherwise I could see it being super drying and harsh on your hair since the ingredients are more skincare based they are great to use but in moderation...Overall, I think if you're going to get the set then it's a great investment, but if you're only wanting to buy one product I would invest in the scalp scrub or conditioner rather than the shampoo

Hair Type: Straight, Wavy, Curly, and Coily

Hair Texture: Fine, Medium, and Thick

- Dryness

- Damage, Split Ends, and Breakage

Formulation: Lightweight Liquid

Highlighted Ingredients:
- Sacha Inchi Seed Oil: Extracted from the seeds of the sacha inchi fruit, this oil is used for its potential to moisturize and soothe irritated skin. These benefits are attributed to the high concentration of antioxidant polyphenols, omega 6 (aka linoleic), and omega 3 (linolenic) fatty acids that sacha inchi seed oil contains. In hair care, sacha inchi oil adds shine and helps offset the damage done by heat styling due to its ability to both coat and partially penetrate the hair shaft.
- Panthenol: Also known as pro-vitamin B5, it is used as a powerful hydrating ingredient that helps smooth, soften, and strengthen the hair shaft.
- Coconut Amino Acid Blend: Gentle, fatty-acid-rich, coconut-based surfactants work together to create a rich foam that effectively lifts dirt, styling products, and other substances away without damaging or stripping color while quick-absorbing amino acids add strength and improved manageability, giving hair a healthier, glossier appearance with visible body and bounce.

Ingredient Callouts: This product is vegan, cruelty-free, and comes in recyclable packaging.

What Else You Need to Know: Amino acids smooth and strengthen hair, add shine, and give visible body and bounce. Antioxidant and fatty-acid-rich oils add moisture without weighing hair down.

This shampoo is free of sulfates, silicones, essential oils, fragrance, dyes, and drying alcohols.

For 30 years, celebrity hairstylist Chris McMillan has worked with every recognizable head of hair in Hollywood. But he could never find a product to do what he wanted: bring hair back to its strongest, healthiest state. So he collaborated with his childhood friend who also happens to be the founder of Drunk Elephant. Together, they created a line of hair care that focuses on the scalp—products that dissolve years of buildup while nourishing hair with coconut-based cleansers and shine-boosting amino acids. The rest just grew from there.
