Nice for oily hair

This shampoo and the matching conditioner work well for my hair. I have long, straight (1b), fine hair that is prone to oiliness. Not much dandruff, but my scalp does get itchy occasionally, so this set sounded like a good fit for me! It has a light scent (the lemon and herbal description is correct!) and lathers up well. My hair felt clean and moisturized but not oily after using the set, and had less oiliness than usual on day 2. This is a rare find for me!. My scalp feels the same; it’s not better, but not worse. The lid twists open (so you have to turn it upside down to use it), which can result in some drips and waste – and that’s a bigger problem on this small, expensive bottle. I enjoyed it, but I’m not quite sure it’s worth the cost (currently $22 for the shampoo and $18 for the conditioner).

Great scent and hair and scalp feel Clean

I ordered this shampoo because my son has been having some trouble with dandruff and some acne along his hair line. The hair dresser suggested using a tea tree shampoo a few times a week. I love that this shampoo doesn't smell so strong that it makes your eyes water like some other tea tree items. My son is seeing improvement in his hair and scalp and while I didn't have the same issues, I notice how much cleaner my hair feels and tends to cooperate with styling easier on the days I also use this shampoo. The price point ($22 at time of my order) is really high for the product size. That said, it takes very little to clean my thick hair and less for my sons, so this product should last for a long time, making that $22 easier to spend.

Good Product

This review is for Four Reasons Original Scalp Scrub Shampoo.i have dry 4c hair but I like a purifying scrub every now and then to keep my pores healthy. This product does the job. It cleanses well and bonus my hair didn't feel really dry afterwards.

Soothing on scalp

The shampoo I received was the scalp rejuvenating with tea tree shampoo. It’s similar to a clarifying shampoo but it definitely makes a big difference on your scalp. It’s refreshing and very nice

Seeing results using with their tonic

I've been using this in conjunction with the Four Reasons Scalp Tonic and have seen quick reduction in irritation (more so than the shampoo bars I was using). I plan on purchasing more when this runs out provided it continues to be beneficial.

Color Mask Treatments are pigmented deep conditioners, and Color Mask Shampoos are pigmented shampoos.

Color Masks are specially formulated for color-treated hair, as they perfectly
take into account all that colored hair needs: color refresh and deep

Color Masks don't contain harsh chemicals like ammonia. Quite the contrary
actually! They gently cleanse and deeply condition and repair hair, while
depositing color pigments to the hair's surface.

Color Masks are intended to tone hair or maintain your existing hair color. We all know that beautiful hair color can fade and lose its vibrancy within a few washes. That's where Color Masks come in! Use in place of regular shampoo or conditioner whenever your hair color needs to be refreshed. Simple as that!
