I was skeptical when this shampoo was recommended for me but figured it was worth a shot. Today is the first day I'm using it, and I have to say, wow. Not only did I not need my normal leave-in conditioner in order to comb it, but when I did comb it, not a single hair was left in the comb. Huge difference for me. I also noticed fewer hairs while I was actually washing it. I will warn that it is a very thick, goopy formula, which I try to stay away from. Over time it does have the potential to cause build-up and possibly compound your original problem. I would definitely recommend this product to a friend, but I would also recommend using a plain, clear, clarifying shampoo once a week to avoid a ton of build-up. Awesome product though.
