I've used it a few times and I found it annoying that it wouldn't lather well, but I was willing to put up with that if it didn't have any sodium lauryl/laureth sulfate... until I found out it has Sodium Myreth Sulfate which is known to be even worse for skin!! I can't believe a product of Jason's has this ingredient. I am very disappointed and hope that they remove that ingredient, until then I will never buy this again!
Used this product for years, until recently...

Like a previous poster, I used this shampoo, and many of the other Jason Naturals shampoos for many years. I never really thought about studying the label beyond the highlights, which states that the shampoo is SLS free. For some reason recently, I decided to look at the label again, and wondered what one of first ingredients listed was: Sodium Myreth Sulfate. I was shocked after looking up the ingredient on the net, to find that it is nearly an identical, harh, cheap detergent, known to be an irritant just like SLS. If fact there is only a two atom difference between the two. Even some naturally derived ingredients are too harsh for the skin. Do some research, and you'll be amazed at what is in some of these so-called natural products. I contacted the company and they avoided discussing SMS, except to say that it is from a natural source, and that their lable complies with legal and government standards. A shame. Needless to say, I no longer purchase any of their products. There are alternatives...check out Dr. Bronner's castile soaps. Their own website has much more information about the misleading claims of many companies.

THIS IS A SHAMPOO THAT IS VERY GOOD FOR THIN HAIR...A LIGHT-WEIGHT SHAMPOO, GOOD FOR COLOR TREATED HAIR, WITH NO BUILDUP. I CONSTANTLY REORDER THIS SHAMPOO.

This is definitely my favourite, along with the conditioner. I have troubled, fine hair with flaky scalp and I've tried a ton of shampoo that still itches and gives me dandruff. This definitely took care of things and beat other more expensive brands. For me this one works better than the Jojoba oil one, but that's good for sensitive people too.
