Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointed I wish shea moisture would not have changed this shampoo. It worked so well on my dry scalp. I was bummed when I noticed it was different and was not as effective. I wish they would inform us why they changed it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from False Advertisment They have changed the old formula and it does NOT work!! My hair is really flaky and itchy and I have to wash my hair just about every week to help reduce the itch. First time using the old formula, I did not have to wash my hair for about 3 weeks!!! No other shampoo has ever done that!!! The old formula saved me tons of money and a trip to the dermatologist. If Shea Moisture really cares about their customers, they will bring back the old formula!! New formula didn't do anything for my hair!! It was hard to get a good lather and did not cleanse my scalp. I thought maybe I just didn't wash my hair good first go round with the new bottle...NO! After the third attempt, I just threw the bottle away. Just as I was about to stock up, they go and change it as if we wouldn't notice. New shampoo is so trash it doesn't even deserve one star! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!CONSUMERS BEWARE!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY ON THIS BOTTLE OF SHAMPOO!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! FALSE ADVERTISEMENT!!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from THE WORST FORMULA Please change back to the original formula. This new formula is much too greasy and causes more build up on my hair, which leads to an even itchier, flakier scalp. The old formula was magic! Please go back to the original!!!!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Bring back old formula, please!! This new formula sucks!!! Please listen to your customer and bring back past formula which worked wonders!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Did a lot of research - disappointed they changed I'm doing a new care routine for my wavy hair - and that has been leaving product residue and a flakey scalp. I researched the best clarifying shampoos, and this one made a few lists. The good price point meant I wanted to try it! Firstly, it doesn't lather AT ALL. Fine, I know that's not necessarily a marker of how clean your hair is getting, so I kept an open mind. But basically in the end instead of clarifying it seems like this shampoo just deposits oils and weight. My hair felt LESS clean after using it. The opposite of what I want in a weekly clarifying routine. I was wondering why so many people had recommended it in online lists - and now see that it's a new formula. If you're going to change a shampoo THAT much you should just discontinue one and make a new one. I feel like this is a bait and switch. Very disappointed and I wish I could return it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from WHAT HAVE YOU DONE?!? Your original formula was great! Magical, even. Why in the world would you change something that seriously exceeded all expectations? I discovered Shea Moisture 7 years ago, when my son's scalp psoriasis had become so out of control, nothing was working, & we were desperate for a solution. So I bought this product & was pleasantly surprised to see the thick plaques on his head begin to clear up after just one use. Nothing has ever worked better! Fast forward to no longer being able to find the product anywhere for quite some time, then it suddenly reappearing with slightly different labeling. So, I read the label.... & no. I am a licensed hairstylist, who pays very close attention to the ingredients in the products I use & recommend. After reading the label on this new formulation, not only will I NOT be buying it for my son, but I will no longer be recommending it to clients. I am extremely disappointing & quite sad to see such a wonderful product ruined like this. Please listen to your customers & bring back the original formula.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible formula This new formula is terrible. I have eczema which causes my scalp to be extremely dry and irritated. The old formula was wonderful it got rid of all the irritation and dryness. This new formula does the exact opposite. Shea Moisture please listen to your LOYAL CUSTOMERS and bring back the old ALL NATURAL FORMULA.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not happy after a couple of uses I had been looking to purchase the Dandruff Control Shampoo and Conditioner line the last few months, since my dandruff is awful with the weather changes here in New England, but waited until my Head and Shoulders had run out. By the time I did I saw that product line had been discontinued. I was forced to buy this one instead. The Deep Cleansing Shampoo makes my hair feeling weighed down. I can't lather AT ALL, plus it's greasy. Not to mention my hair strips even MORE than the Neutrogena Anti-Residue Shampoo I used to use. Have I mentioned I've only been using this for TWO days? I was reading how good the Dandruff Control line was, but now I'll never get that chance. PLEASE bring it back so returning and new customers alike can experience it

I've got thick, curly and dry Indian hair along with a dry itchy scalp. I've also recently come to realise that my hair is of low porosity after doing the float test. Is this product suitable for me?

Asked by: Sidharth
Yes, this product is a great option for low porosity hair types and scalp issues. Ingredients like African black soap, willow bark extract and tea tree oil will help cleanse and balance the oils on your scalp!

About the new formula, everyone seems to hate it in the reviews but at the same time idk when it was updated or if you actually changed it or not, when and if you did, can the reviews and description can be updated? cause it’s very misleading

Asked by: Sazk
Our products are periodically updated with changes to ingredients and packaging. It is indeterminable when this product was updated through reviews as customers may review older or newer versions at the same time.

Was interested in buying this but I see a lot of unhappy customers with reviews on the new formula, is the formula back to the original or is it still the new one?

Asked by: Miss_V
Hi Miss_V, Currently we do not have any plans on returning to a previous formula. This updated formula has been updated and is more efficient at balancing hair and scalp and removing build up.

Can I use this shampoo every week since it is labeled as a clarifying shampoo which should only be used once per month?

Asked by: Charlene
Hi Charlene, This product is actually safe to use daily. But you can use it once a week if you prefer.
