    Smells amazing and leaves my hair feeling very clean. Love the light weight bottle! Love the feeling of eliminating some plastic from my life. Can’t wait to try some other products!

  2. blarpit333 (verified owner)

    The smell is great, but it absolutely strips my hair and is very drying. I’ll likely only use it for camping trips when I need biodegradable shampoo. Pretty sad as I loved the idea but can’t justify paying the price for something that doesn’t work with my hair.

  3. Traci Hall (verified owner)

    I am willing to spend more than I normally would for shampoo for several reasons, this shampoo is cruelty free, it is not in a plastic container, and it smells amazing. But the main reason is because I can return the bottle when I order a refill. I wish more companies would do this! Also, I was happy with the amount of lather the shampoo provided. I highly recommend this company and this product.

    So far this is the only item I have purchased as I wanted to be sure I liked the results before committing to a number of other products. After about 2 weeks of use I must say I am pleasantly surprised by the quality of the shampoo and have no qualms about ordering a refill! I was first drawn in by Plaine Products’ initiative to reduce single use plastics and now that I have confirmed the quality I am definitely going to continue to purchase my shampoos and conditioners here. Though I do enjoy the citrus lavender scent I hope to see a wider variety as this company continues to expand. One other small gripe, I wish the price per item were just a tad cheaper. I’m sure there are a number of factors to account for this, but spending almost 4X the amount of a shampoo at the grocery store can make committing to this lifestyle choice harder than it should be for such a good cause. I’m hoping this will change over time but with that said, I do believe it is still a worthwhile investment overall!

    I love the way my hair feels using this product. I tried it because it is a plastic free option but I will keep using it best of the quality.

  6. scarella01 (verified owner)

    I am really loving this shampoo so far. My hair feels softer than it was before. I am happy to have found this plastic free option.

  7. Sarah Solberg (verified owner)

    My hair has never felt cleaner! I’ve struggled to find a sulfate free shampoo that actually cleans my hair. I have and oily scalp and am prone to product and hard water build up. I was considering getting a clarifying/chelating shampoo, but this shampoo really does it all. If you leave it in your hair for a few minutes, it acts as a clarifying shampoo in my opinion. Plus it doesn’t have the artificial fragrances and ingredients that cause build up. I found that I only need 2-3 pumps of the shampoo. It cleans thoroughly but doesn’t leave your hair feeling stripped. In fact, this is the least dry the ends of my hair have ever been. Since it is aloe based instead of water based, there is a little bit of a learning curve when applying it to your hair since the texture is very different. I found that brushing my hair thoroughly before taking a shower helps spread the product better throughout my hair. I apply one pump to the top layer of my hair and then a second pump to the bottom layer which also helps integrate the product throughout as well. The shampoo smells really nice and leaves my hair feeling super soft, with a lot of volume (my hair is so bouncy). Overall I highly recommend this product.

  8. Julia (verified owner)

    I LOVE this shampoo! I have tried both scents and prefer the citrus lavender, I have found that whatever is used to scent it works better with my hair. I have extremely finicky hair and the only products that I have found that don’t eventually cause my hair to get oily, dry, or somehow a combination are Aveda (at $70 for 17 oz of their vegan shampoo!!!) and Plaine Products and I very much prefer the eco-friendly aspects that Plaine Products offers.

  9. Kristen Fantozzi (verified owner)

    Wonderful fast service and so far, a great shampoo (and I also love the conditioner)! I love the scent and it leaves my hair feeling super fresh and clean and soft! I’m so happy to find a great sustainable option for hair care.

  10. Beverly Goldie (verified owner)

    I have both the shampoo and conditioner. My love the way the shampoo leaves my hair feeling so clean. I was hesitant about how well these products would work, but my expectations have been exceeded! I so appreciate everything about these products, packaging, ethics, ingredients… you name it! Plaine Products delivers on every level!

  11. jmazzola223 (verified owner)

    Just came to the realization that I’ve been using this for a year now and I’ve yet to review it!
    Soo this shampoo is AMAZING. First tried it in college when I’d been searching for a good sustainable shampoo option and fell in loveee with the smell. After graduating I was finally able to get a subscription and it’s been the perfect solution for me!
    Doesn’t dry my hair out (I have thin/medium thickness? long straight hair) even though I use it everyday, and even though I sometimes skip the conditioner.
    Bottom line/tldr: fantastic, super sustainable, amazing smelling shampoo totally worth the price.

  12. sarreb82 (verified owner)

    This shampoo works great in my hair – unlike many healthy shampoos I’ve tried. I love the smell and love the reusable bottles. It is more expensive than I am used to spending on hair care, so I’m curious to see how long I can make it last. I think it will be worth it considering the quality ingredients and no plastics.

  13. Maggie Hines (verified owner)

    LOVE this product! I’ve been using it for nearly two months now. Every aspect of this company is wonderful, I wish more businesses took the steps you guys have to be more sustainable! Just started a subscription 🙂 Thanks y’all!

  14. maryciccarose (verified owner)

    I just started with this shampoo and conditioner and am very happy with the products and the service. I am delighted to have the option to use reusable containers.

  15. tiana.luke (verified owner)

    I have been using this shampoo and conditioner for over 2 months now and I’m highly impressed. I had read some reviews before about how those using this shampoo could wash their hair less and thought “yeah, right” but it’s true! I can go longer without washing my hair and it still looks good. So I save money too. I still wash my hair 2-3 times per week (depending on how sweaty I get, and I sweat often) but I still have over half a bottle left. My SO has been working out of town a lot so he hasn’t been using it as much so I’d say I’ve still got 2/3 left with 1.25 people using this shampoo for over two months, which is impressive. I love lavender smelly things, but this one isn’t my favorite but it’s good enough and I’ll continue to purchase.

  16. Victoria Mattiello (verified owner)

    For anyone with hair like mine, I have fine straight hair. I LOVE this shampoo. It lathers nicely and smells great without being overbearing. It doesn’t weigh my hair down or make it oily. I’m so happy to support this company in it’s efforts to reduce plastic waste and to use healthier products for my hair.

  17. melissaconklin2300 (verified owner)

    I wanted to love this product because I love the idea of a plastic-free bottle. Unfortunately, the shampoo dried my hair out horribly. I tried leaving the conditioner in longer, but my hair only improved after a few weeks of using an intensely moisturizing shampoo/conditioner of a different brand. If Plaine ever creates a more moisturizing product, I would definitely try it, but this didn’t work out for me.

  18. nmboone72 (verified owner)

    The shampoo and conditioner smell great; however, I do wish the product was a little more moisturizing. My hair feels like it is drying out a bit. I wash my hair every 2-3 days. I wish Plaine Products would also expand their line to include hair styling products. I love ditching the plastic and that the bottles are returnable.

    • Lindsey McCoy (verified owner)

      Our co founder Ali Webster also has curly hair and often skips the shampoo all together, but leaves the conditioner for a few minutes while she showers and reports that makes a big difference. She’ll also use the conditioner as a leave in product on days when she needs extra conditioning, or applies it to dry hair to help tame the mane.

      We are looking into some deeper conditioner options as well! Let me know what else we can do to help.

  19. erica.nelson (verified owner)

    I’ve been using this shampoo for 6 months. It smells AMAZING!! I have fine and naturally dry hair, and this shampoo is clarifying but not overly drying.

  20. janedanek9 (verified owner)

    Wow, better even than I anticipated. The citrus lavender smells GREAT, and the lather is just right. My hair truly feels and looks better. Hard to imagine that doing the right thing could be better than the mass market stuff. Congratulations ladies, you are helping save the world!

    I have been going zero waste & toxin free as my New Year Resolution. I wish all of the changes have been as easy as switching to plastic free hair and body products! I have been loyal to Aveda for over a decade & I wasn’t sure plaine could measure up, but after only one shampoo a comment was made about how soft my hair was! (I’m going gray and hair texture has been the biggest adjustment).
    Honestly, of all the changes I have implemented this has been the easiest and smoothest transition. I like the product better than my old shampoo and I love knowing I’m not adding any more plastic into the environment. This is a double win!

  22. jmarchuk (verified owner)

    Love this shampoo! The scent is amazing and it makes my hair feel super clean. The packaging is also great, obviously!! Would recommend.

  23. thieme_c (verified owner)

    LOVE this product and the smell is so good! I am an earth lover and do my best to be plastic free. I tried the bars and they just leave my hair tangled and in nad shape. This product has been amazing! Not only does it smell and work great, I bundled and got the conditioner and soap deal! I love the idea of being able to return the bottles and know that I did my part to reduce my plastic and any other form of waste! Will buy again and again and I can’t wait to refill again I might try a different scent!

  24. thompsky (verified owner)

    Good clean smell and good lather plus plastic-free

  25. mgulas

    My husband and I love this shampoo! It smells great, a small amount is all we need, and it leaves our hair soft and manageable. The added bonus is that there are no scary chemicals!

  26. shannonocj

    I wanted to try this product mainly because I am trying to rid my life of as much plastic as possible. I ordered the Citrus-Lavender Shampoo + Conditioner and I am thrilled. I have difficult, thin, fine bodiless hair and I really didn’t have high hopes for this product and I have been very pleasantly surprised. I noticed almost immediately that my hair did not fall out as much as with ALL my previous products. This was a surprising and very unexpected benefit. My hair feels super clean, soft, strong and is not weighed down at all. I love the fragrance – lavender is my absolute favorite scent.

    I absolutely love the concept of the returnable and reusable bottles and I really hope to see an expansion to household cleaning products soon. I will be the first in line when this is released.

  27. lmgamboa225

    I love this stuff! It’s so hard to find natural shampoo that actually gets a good lather and leaves my hair feeling clean, without having to use like 8 pumps of it. The conditioner is great as well. My hair feels really healthy after about a month and a half of using it. I also use it on my kids because of the safe ingredients! And last but not least, the citrus lavender scent smells sooooooo good. Whenever I wash my hair I think of lavender lemonade. So good.

  28. babyshroomy3

    Love the new scent. Great shampoo, my hair looks and feels great. Glad to reduce my plastic use. I recommend this and the conditioner to all my friends. As this is my 2nd bottle I decided to get the subscription because I’m hooked.

  29. meganallison1

    I started using these products 2 weeks ago, and I am in LOVE with them!! I love that these are all natural and the way my hair feels! All other shampoos were making my hair feel dirty and greasy all the time! I am so happy that I converted and am loving everything about this amazing product!!
    Also how little you actually have to use is the crazy part!! An added bonus is that the bottles are refillable, thus reducing plastic use!

  30. mherring

    LOVE Plaine Products! My hair feels and smells amazing. Reusable bottles help keep more plastic out of the ocean and this is a great way to start helping. The customer service I’ve received from Plaine has been amazing as well.

  31. mrschris10

    LOVE THIS IDEA, and it wouldn’t work unless the shampoo was as good as the idea. It is; our whole family loves it (I bought one for my adult son). I’ve told everyone I know to get on board.

  32. alissa.siciliano

    I have been using the citrus lavender shampoo for two months now. I love the fresh scent and it leaves my fine hair feeling very soft. I will definitely continue to purchase this shampoo.

  33. catalano.elizabeth1

    I have only used the shampoo for a few days, but it feels and smells amazing! It feels great to transition my bathroom products to more environmentally sustainable options.

  34. oliviampond

    Both of these options smell incredible!! I don’t think you could go wrong with any combination of them. 🙂
