Most Helpful Positive Review Firstly I really appreciate fekkai's efforts…
Firstly I really appreciate fekkai's efforts to keep Gods earth green with their packaging that is made with 95% recycled plastic, but also with their ingredients. With no sulfates silicones parabens or phthalate in the product that means less chemicals are being washed down our drains! as for the shampoo itself I really enjoyed it and I would repurchase it again. The shampoo is a thick formula and the lather is rich. It feels cleansing without stripping. It cleared my scalp of product build up but wasnt too harsh for my dry curly hair. I have 3b curls and I have followed the curly girl method for over 2 years so i appreciate the effort that went into this line of products.
Most Helpful Critical Review I loved the old formula!
I have been a fan of fekkai products for a long time. I love it! Then, it went off the shelf and came out with this new formula. This new formula didn't clean my hair. After washing, my hair felt oily and didn't smell as great as the older formula. Its a shame, I am now searching for a product to fall in love with again. I used this product once and now its just sitting in the shower not being used. So sad..

I have used Fekkai RX Reparative Shampoo and Conditioner for over 20 years! It was the best. The new formula is the worst. Leaves your hair flat and greasy. I am beyond sad and can't understand why with so many of us who loved it that you would change. Please bring it back.

I think this is a worth to buy product. I have color treated long hair and it has made my hair feel softer and more manageable. I did pair it with the conditioner.
Why did you ruin a great product?
Kristy Dyroff from St Simon's Island, GA
I have used this product for over 10 years. The changes you've made ruined it and I'm going to change to another shampoo!
Not the same product I received as a sample years ago
Darla_22 from Maryland
Recently bought the technician color conditioner and it did not condition my hair like the old formula sample size I purchased several years ago. The new conditioner is white in color and my sample size is pink, you can see the difference. I will return this conditioner to Ulta. Very disappointed as the older formula was wonderful for damaged hair.
My New Favorite
Fekk...Yeah! from ct
A little goes a long way for my thick medium length hair, smells so good and doesn't make my hair feel so oily after 24 hours and I can skip a wash ( I normally wash my hair everyday because of how oily my hair gets). I bought the volume shampoo and it's amazing too!
Not what I expected.
Not For Me from Richmond, Indiana
I had a deluxe sample of this from a recent gift with purchase set from Ulta.com. At first, I noticed that I liked how it lathered on my hair and the smell didn't bother me too much, but as I kept washing, I could feel my hair start to turn hard and hay-like. I had a rats nest in the back of my head from washing with this. (I brush my hair before I wash it, too, and this has never happened before with any other shampoo!) I had to use the last of my Briogeo mask, which I was saving for my Sunday "spa" day, and don't have a back up (I'm pouting) and even that could hardly undo the damage this did to my hair. It just really did not work for my hair. I have long, straight/wavy, thick, highlighted hair. I wouldn't think it would be my hair's fault... but maybe? I was just really shocked at how awful my hair felt from this. My husband even agreed that it felt like I'd been swimming in a pool all day, but I wasn't. Reminded me of how my hair feels when using a really, really bad beach wave spray... crusty, hard, tangled and somehow feels like you've washed with salt water (even when it says salt-free (uh hum...Amika!)). Not what you want from a shampoo! Pretty shocked this didn't work out for me. Glad it was free!
Deny from Ala
Store was out of my usual shampoo so I had to find something else. Came upon this one but was a little skeptical due to some of the reviews. Took a chance and bought it and was wonderfully surprised! Unlike some of the other reviews stating this shampoo left the hair oily, it was great. Left my hair soft, shiny, and very manageable. It felt very silky and smells great! Would definitely buy this again. Very happy with my purchase.
Great hair days
Mary R from PA
Great product for healthy, shiney, color treated hair.
Works very well for my colored hair.
Love fekkai from Calif.
Love this product.., it is clean, only need a small amount.
Terrible. Worst I've Ever Used.
Molly from Hartford, CT
Worst shampoo I've ever used. Made my hair look greasy and dull. Save your money and buy something else.
Perfect shampoo for me
Texas Lady from Midlothian
Just started using this brand because Pureology wasn't available. Sales person suggested this instead. Love it and it's cheaper. Win Win!!
LOVE LOVE LOVE!!!!

So I just used this product and finished blow-drying my hair and oh my god am I in love! (I have straight, oily, naturally dark brown hair that has been balayaged and then put a dark brown gloss over that.) For starters, I am super allergic to gluten, so I make sure that my skincare products are gluten free. I never realized my shampoo was an issue until recently, so this was the best rated gluten free shampoo (that also protected hair color) that I found on here. And bonus, it is sustainable!! And oh my god am I glad I switched because I am in love! My hair feels so clean and it never felt this way with the other shampoos I have used. It has a really nice, clean smell that isn't strong. My gloss is super faded right now, so I can't really tell how well it is doing color protection wise, but it isn't any lighter if that helps. I saw a lot of comments saying how people loved the old formula and didn't like this one as much, but since I never tried it, I can't compare. But I really love this formula. Since I just washed my hair, I don't know how long it will be until it gets oily again (I usually wash my hair every other day), but it seems promising at the moment.
Silk and Radiance
Nicole Eventoff from Princeton, New Jersey
My hair feels silky clean and my color looks radiant after each shampoo !
Love this shampoo!
ak86 from Buffalo, NY
Obsessed with this shampoo! I have brown hair naturally (I think lol) and I have colored it red for years. This is the only shampoo I have used that doesn't require color to be deposited in while washing, meaning a 5 minute wait time, and that also helps hold my color in. My hair feels soft and is shiny and seriously healthy.
PattiS from Delray Beach, FL
I love the product however I was surprised at how long it took to arrive, about days
Makes my hair so soft and it smells so good!
Nikki from Florida
Anabell from Rancho Cucamonga
I used this years ago and it worked great, loved the way it left my hair and it smelled fantastic. When i saw it on Ultas website it had alot of reviews and almost 5 stars now I checked it to make sure i bought the same product and now theres only a couple of reviews and mostly negative. I have highlighted fine wavy hair and this left my hair like straw, it felt sticky and overprocessed and it didnt feel like that before. This stuff is terrible. It has the same fragrance but i should have known it was changed because of the conditioner it completely different.
MomSalon from undisclosed
Love this shampoo! It Makes my hair look and smell great
Made highlights brighter
Cap from RI
I like this shampoo. I found my hair seemed lighter after using it. I did need conditioner to easily comb after washing,but it wasn't too bad if I didn't use conditioner. I bought trial size,but plan on getting bigger bottle.
Miss the old, but this is good
Lacy Love from Newport Beach, CA
Nothing compares to the original formula, but this is still good. It smells amazing and really does protect my color treated hair. It requires the right amount of water to get the lather everyone looks for when washing hair. I also find that using the conditioner first, and then shampoo after, works best. I have fine thin wavy/straightish below shoulder length hair. I'm stoked Ulta now carries Fekkai products.
I will never buy this again!
D from NC
I LOVED the old formula. The new one is the worst thing I have used in a long time. I have bought this for many years, however I will not buy it again. So Sad!
Completely different from the original
Wendyf from North jersey
So very dissatisfied w the new formula. My hair is lifeless and flat. Will not buy this ever again
Bring the old formula back!
Laurie53 from NJ
I've been using the old formula for years and just recently ran out of my supply. I bought the new shampoo and conditioner, thinking they just changed the packaging. The new formula is just horrible! I can't even get a wide tooth comb through my hair, whereas before it was smooth as silk after. Please bring the old formula back.
New Formula is AWFUL
trace from california
Have been using Fekkai for years and years. This new formula is sadly, awful. My hair just doesn't feel the same, definitely not as clean. I'm so disappointed. I've tried so many different shampoos over the last 20+ years and always, ALWAYS ended back with Fekkai. Now what am I going to do! Ugh.
Rich & Creamy
anonymous from Brownsville, OR
I love this shampoo. It's rich and creamy with a light fragrance. Leaves my hair soft and shinny. With naturally curly hair, this is important. I use it with the Technician color conditioner.
