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

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Why did you change a great formula?? This was the best, natural shampoo for my seborrheic dermatitis, until it was changed! It's super greasy now and absolutely is not "deep cleansing". The replacement for this (the ABS shampoo bar) leaves my hair feeling hard and plastic-feeling, and using apple cider vinegar to counteract how alkaline it is doesn't help. Please bring back the old formula!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from So sad So I completely fell in love with a natural shampoo that was not greasy and eased the extreme itch of my scalp...then the company changed the formula and I’m back to the itchy pain that was my life before I found Shea Moisture African Black soap. This is totally not the same and I’m so sad they changed the formula. If anyone has found a shampoo like this one used to be please post...

Rated 1 out of 5 by from HATE,HATE,HATE the new formula Please bring back the old formula. If someone has found a great substitute please post. I had the shiniest hair not anymore, and why not inform us of the change before we buy it?

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 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 :(

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.

Hi! I have some questions regarding "AFRICAN BLACK SOAP DEEP CLEANSING SHAMPOO": 1.What's its pH level? 2.Does it leave any kind of residue on hair, like typical soaps? 3.Does it make coloured hair fade faster? I would be very grateful for any help.

Asked by: frozen78
This product is sulfate-free & color-safe and will actually help remove buildup from hair not add to it! At this time the pH level of our products is proprietary, we hope this helps!

I went on the target website and checked to see if it's available at my target in town. But what caught my eye it says "do not use if pregnant or nursing" why is that?

Asked by: Rachel
Hi Rachel, This is a standard warning on clarifying products. It is recommended to contact your physician for any further information when pregnant.
