Rated 1 out of 5 by from So bummed about this new formula I have scalp psoriasis and the only thing that helped was the old formula of this shampoo. I literally cried when I got a new bottle and saw the cream color and texture. It doesn’t nothing for my scalp now and the embarrassment of my scalp issues have returned

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Unhappy with the unexpected product change Why change an existing product that people love and expect? I just received an online order from a different website and was shocked that it was the wrong product! It had completely different ingredients (added mild sulfates and shea butter). Then I found out SM had changed the product. Why not just make a new line? This is bad on so many levels and makes me not want to buy ANY of your products again. I get that products you love can get discontinued at any point, but to change formulas of an existing product without making it obvious to customers? Just terrible business practice. It really breaks the trust of your brand and message. I will be finding alternatives for all my SM products and will no longer buy your brand.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from *NEW* formula causing irritation! I was such a loyal customer of this shampoo. It was the only one that kept my flakes/itchiness at bay. I noticed the change in color and consistency when I received my newest bottle but used to anyway. After 1 use, my scalp was noticably itchier. After a few more washes I couldn't take the scratching anymore and stopped using it due to the irritation it was causing. I'm on a different brand now and all is well again. HATE THE NEW FORMULA.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from The new "Deep Cleansing" formula is terrible! This shampoo was perfect for my seb derm and then it was changed to include a HUGE amount of oils. If people found the original ABS formula too drying that's on them...you don't use something that says "deep cleaning" and expect it to be hydrating! Please Shea Moisture, you have sooooo many shampoos for dry hair/scalp, don't take this one away from us oily-scalp curly girls :(

Rated 1 out of 5 by from LET'S DO THIS TO GET THE OLD FORMULA BACK! I am not a fan of the new formula either, and I find that for a "deep cleansing" shampoo, it makes my hair reallyyyy greasy. That being said, I recently spoke to a representative, and in order to get the old formula back, we have to e-mail the product development team at [email protected] about our formula preference. This is so they can periodically plan to update the product back to the original formula if there are a lot of bad reviews. So join me in getting the old formula back and getting back our amazing wash day results from the African Black Soap Deep Cleansing Shampoo!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Crying inside for old formula back The new formula does nothing for my psoriasis on scalp. This new one just doesn't work like the old one. Didn't even see African black soap in it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from PLEASE BRING BACK THE OLD FORMULATION!!!! The old formulation of this product was the only shampoo that I would use. Gentle on my scalp, removed buildup without stripping my hair. Few ingredients, no sulfates, natural... it was PERFECT!! Please bring it back I am running out of my last backup bottle and can not find the old formulation ANYWHERE !

I just bought this shampoo but the ingredient list has gone up to 34 ingredients, not only the ones listed here. Will the new ingredients leave a residue? I have dreadlocks so it is vital for me to use a shampoo that leaves no residue. Thank you.

Hello, I have tried ordering this product multiple times from different sites now. Has the product/packaging changed? I keep getting another shampoo that is a different color and a different label...

Asked by: Valeria
Sadly they changed this shampoo formula. Im very upset, it was the only shampoo that helped my severe scalp problems and now must look for another one. Avoid new formula, it doesn’t help itchy scalp or psoriasis and leaves hair greasy.. Praying the company bring the classic formula back!! Please join many customers emailing them asking to bring back our black liquid saviour.

Have you released a new version of this shampoo? I just received a new bottle and the color is different, the label is different, the ingredients are different. Usually when companies do this, they ease customer's confusion by displaying "NEW FORMULA"

Asked by: Gabrielle

What are the new ingredients for this product? What is the consistency of this product?

Asked by: AriH
Our ingredient list on our site has been updated with the new formulation for this product, this product still has a thick consistency due to our organic shea butter.

How much do I need to use to wash my shoulder blade length hair. I used a nickel size for shampoo and conditioner and cool water. It made my hair softer and not as frizzy as normal. But I still have itchyness and flakes. Does it take time to work

Asked by: Jacqueline
We recommend incorporating this shampoo into your regular hair care routine for best results, using as much it takes to lather around entire scalp & hair. Cool or warm water is fine, hot water can damage hair so cooler temperatures are better for shampooing. Result time may vary from person to person depending on the severity of your condition, we recommend thoroughly cleansing hair for faster results!
