Family feedback: “The scent is light and clean and it lathers well. It doesn’t irritate my sensitive scalp. It works just as well as other non-natural products, and I actually prefer it to the other kinds I use. It keeps the tangles of Ruby’s wild and curly hair down, and she likes that she can actually brush her own hair after her shower.”
