LIKE A MIRACLE FOR MY HAIR!
Posted by Reviewer2169605 on Jul 23, 2014
I have long hair with bleach highlights which makes it extremely fried where the highlights are the heaviest. This has meant that every time I wash my hair I have to use detangler and spend ages working through the brillo like tangles in order not to break it off or rip it out. The when my hair is dry it looked like frizzy mess no matter what products I used. I have used super expensive to drug store cheap and everything in between. I ordered this on a whim because it was a trial size I figured it couldn't hurt. First I used an online translation program to read the reviews because the only ones here were in Russian, they were raves, and one girl mentioned how she only had to use a tiny amount. Well, I used my current ordinary natural shampoo, and following the lead of the reviewer, put just a bit of this on and my hair was transformed. This tiny bottle lasted 4 shampoos! Usually I'd use the amount contained in this bottle in one use just trying to get my hair to a combable state. I used only a tiny bit of detangler on the the couple of tough spots which were very small, and it combed through in no time with no ripping and pulling Even more magically when my hair was dry, it was smooth, shiny and bouncy. I'm back for the large size now, plus trying the trial of the shampoo too, so will reiview that soon.

If you read my glowing review of the conditioner (small size), you know that it was the answer to my prayers. So I was very excited to recieve the shampoo thinking after using the two together I would have shiny glossy hair. Not So!! I immeidately worried when a tiny amount went super lathery in the shower. Natural shampoos should not be very foamy. As I rinsed I could feel my hair returning to it's pre the Adama anit frizz conditioner state of, well, frizz matt. I applied the condtioner which did help, but still, after shower combing I was back to lots of detangler, and very careful, painstaking detangling and still had quite a bit of breakage. Then after drying, frizz frizz frizz, which required both oil and cream after products to modify. I'll give this away now. Sad. I'm still super happy with the conditioner and will continue to order that. While on the topic, it really irritates me that you cant get a refund for opened products from iHerb, it's one of the few things Vitamin SHoppe has over them. I mean come on, not everything works for everyone, and ok maybe this shampoo isnt expensive but people try supplments that dont work for them that are expensive. if they offered a refund it would encourage people to try more new things. Anyway, bottom line on this shampoo is don't use it if you have damaged hair.
no adverse reaction

I chose these as my source of Omega 7 because I had a bad reaction to the sea buckthorn in the gelatin softgel, as I am allergic to most animal products, I have to avoid gelatin. I have had no adverse reaction but cannot yet say if they are providing any benefit, as it's only been 1 week. They are expensive, especially taking two a day. Although 1 a day is the recommended dose on the bottle, with severe health issue I raised the dose. What I can say is that they are very 'clean' as my body is sensitive to any additives or poorly extracted oils, so I will continue to take them.
Has a toxic effect on me

Granted I am extremely sensitive with numerous immune and auto immune issues, but this gives me liver pain, blurred vision and some other symptoms (I am expreiencing these as I write). I double checked that it was none of my other supplements through a painstaking elimination process, but I am quite certain it's these. I have previously used Life Extension brand to great effect, but tried these in order to save money as it's half the price, and the reviews are excellent. Will stop taking now, so not a savings after all, as the bottle is still quite full. Back to Life Extension. Perhaps ok for others, wish I could send them to you!
In my everyday smoothie

This is one of the many ingredients in my everyday smoothie. It has get immune system regulating properties for those of us with serious auto immune issues, plus is a great immune booster for healthy individuals. Royal Jelly is is also one of the supplements recommended for fertiltiy issues. The taste isn't great, but in the smoothie you can't taste it. After I spoon it into the blender, I let my dog lick the little bit remaining on the spoon, as my vet says bee foods are very helpful for dogs (for instance, propolis is used to treat urinary tract issues in dogs). Overall, I wouldnt 'bee' (haha) without it, especially in the cold winter months!
Why Gelatin?? Why Magnesium Stearate??

I used this brand for a long time, but can no longer tolerate these excipients so had to switch to Now brand. Nautre's Way you have to get with the current research, and change these aspects of your otherwise wonderful products!
Wow. Just finishing my first bottle, and back for another

I cannot recommend Cleavers, or lymph detoxing highly enough. I came across this herb on iHerb while searching for herbal products to kidney and liver/gall bladder cleanse, something I do periodically. I'm pretty well versed in this stuff and although I have done liver/gall bladder flushes and colon cleansing and even done lymph detoxing via diet and exercise, I didn't know there was an herb for this. I have had a number of medical conditions over the years which no doubt have dumped a lot into my lymph system through both drugs and simply detoxing the diseases themselves. Anyway, the thing I noticed first was in my neck around my glands and jaw, big detox (I am using Astragalus which helps to mitigate the detox symptoms). The it seemed to move through my body along lymphatic pathways. My body is regaining it's flexibility, and I am regaining my very fit body of a few years ago. I cannot say this has been easy and painless, but far less difficult than some cleanses I've been on. I have now worked up to taking 20 drops 3 times per day, and will up again in the next bottle, then taper off.Probably will go through 3 bottles and then take a rest. I would highly recommend this for anyone who is/has been seriously ill, and/or has gone through any type of drug treatment. I only wish there was a California Xtracts version of this, or even Natures Answer with alcohol. Alcohol is the most potent delivery system, but the other two products sold here are just too expensive.

I have a number of health problems, and difficulty with digestion. FOr the last couple of years, I have been taking the Life Extension brand enzymes because I know that it's a very good company with excellent research behind it; my family has been taking their supplements for decades. Still I felt my digestion wasn't good, so seeing this on such a super trial price, and having really liked the other Zoi products I've tried so far, I decided to give these a try. I felt the difference from the first capsule. Of course everyone is different, but my experience with these was excellent.
Nice tea, bad packaging

I love the taste and price of this tea, BUT each bag is wrapped in plastic that is very hard to open and terrible for one's health and the environment. SHAME

This makes me feel really unwell. I'm going to go back to Evening Primrose which does the same thing and works well for me. As a side note, I used to use another very expensive brand of Black Currant and had no side effects, so I think it's the gelatin, and possibly the process of extraction that are the issues.
