Himalayan Crystal Salt Shampoo
Barbara Hendel's Himalayan Crystal Salt Shampoo
I bought this because I love Dr. Hendel's homeopathic products and wanted to try her shampoo. At first I was leery because many people have said the shampoo doesn't lather. I just finished using Suzanne Somers' Organic Shampoo that lathered by having cocoa butter as an ingredient. I've used Dr. Hendel's shampoo twice now and see that it has a cocoa butter element in its ingredients.
The shampoo has lathered for me both times and has rinsed cleanly. It has left my fair feeling soft and clean. I have very fine hair and this has given it more body and shine.

Good product at a good price.
A good shampoo that really does soften hair. I would like it better if it gave my hair more shine but overall I am pleased. I'm very sensitive to fragrances and this is mello and non offensive and the conditioner works well also. My hair is fine, long and I color it.

I have to say that when I discovered this product I was ecstatic! I love the benefits of salt therapy and couldn't wait to see the benefits to my hair. I couldn't wait to take a shower once my shipment came in.
I cracked open the bottle, started to wash my hair, then was disappointed because it was not lathering, even a little bit. I didn't expect full lather, like you get with the chemical-laden shampoos you get at the store, but I did expect some. I told myself that maybe I was being unreasonable, so I trudged through trying to get my hair clean. After adding more shampoo, I was still not getting any lather and I could tell my hair was still dirty. Feeling deflated, I switched back to my other shampoo.
The next day, I tried again. Same results. The fifth day, I still had no lather, BUT I could tell my hair was actually clean this time so I did not follow up with my other shampoo. On the seventh day, I GOT LATHER!
Long story short, don't give up on this product. Keep trudging through. I use the conditioner as well. It has been about a month now, and my hair is cleaner, softer and shinier than it has ever been. It is also less frizzy. Oh, and on days that your hair gets really sweaty, expect to use more shampoo.

I had stopped using all other shampoos because of the horrible things it did to my hair. But I tried this shampoo and I LOVE IT !!!!!!!

A mixed bag
The ingredients list has good, natural extracts. Was it really necessary though, to use the preservatives sodium and potassium benzoate?
This is a low-sudsing shampoo, so if you like a full head of suds, you'll need to use a lot, and will burn through the bottle in no time.
This did not help my dry scalp problem at all.
I liked the fresh scent... it isn't all chemical-smelling. I play beach volleyball, and found that it does a good job of cleaning very dirty hair. This product is probably more suited for men than women, as it cleans thoroughly, and doesn't have a girlie scent.
At the end of the day, I'm not a big fan of this shampoo, and will discontinue use.

Wow! This shampoo is the best I have ever tried. I am no beautician but the smell is so wonderful, like honey suckle, no chemical stench, just the soft pleasant smell of flowers. I have looked long for such a shampoo. I will buy this for all my female relatives and friends and am sure to win points from them. Very pleased!

the best shampoo for me
I've spent a lot of time and money searching for a shampoo that will not irritate my scalp and clean well without a giant paragraph of ingredients. I've found it and highly recommend it to others no matter what they're searching for--it's great.

A marvelous shampoo!
This is a wonderful product which seems to add luster and silkiness to the hair while leaving a sense of squeaky clean, fragrant aroma. I am reminded of the salt in the ocean and how therapeutic it seems to immerse oneself in the salt waters of the sea. Similarly, this product offers that uncanny sensation of deep cleansing and therapeutic benefits of salt in a very fine formula containing all natural ingredients. I find that I do not need to use a conditioner afterward, so perfect is the balanced result.

I have been using this shampoo for a few weeks -- thought I'd try it because I have other Himalayan Salt products. Unfortunately, the shampoo, although my hair feels squeaky clean, leaves my hair dull -- there is no shine at all. I will not use this product again and am thinking of returning the second bottle I bought.

This shampoo leaves my hair full of body and shiny. I really like it and will purchase again.

Had to use too much.
Did not like this shampoo. Hair felt stiff and tangled. Also not a good value for the dollar.

Shampoo & MORE
I decided to use this as a body shampoo also and love it! It leaves my skin soft, silky & moisturized. I love the fact that it has salt in it that balances the PH of the skin and hair. This is a great product!

I was really surprised after using this product. what a great job it did on my hair, it thoroughly cleaned my hair and after drying my hair it does not lay flat like most shampoos leave my hair.

Really cleans hair
This is a nice low-sudsing shampoo that really gets your hair clean and is not harsh.

Squeaky clean hair
Does a great job removing product build-up. My hair literally sqeaks when I rinse it. Styles easily afterward. Shampoo is low lather so make sure your hair is completely wet before applying the shampoo. May need to use more than usual or apply more than once to feel like the shampoo has reached all the hair. I wouldn't advise using the shampoo on a daily basis if you have fine or thinning hair. Scent is uplifting.
