Ratings & Reviews

the sodium chloride in this shampoo dries out my hair


sadly, after using paula's choice shampoo for years and years, the salt in this newer formula turns my hair to straw. after using the previous formula I could run my hand through my wet hair without snags yet my hair and scalp were clean with no residue. I used it as a bodywash for some time but it is too expensive just for that purpose so I switched to another fragrance free cleanser. I love and use other paula's choice products and would love to use the shampoo again if it were reformulated without the drying sodium chloride.



It does what a shampoo is supposed to do - clean hair


I love this shampoo! I used to use Head & Shoulders but it was very harsh. I switched to Paula's shampoo and my scalp calmed down after about a week of use and I have been using it ever since for years! Love it! It does exactly what a shampoo is supposed to do - clean hair. If you want moisture and coconut and whatnot, get a conditioner as that will add back as much moisture as you want... or don't want. I recently ran out of this shampoo (bad planning!) and am using a big bottle from Costco - it is fine, but feels like I'm using lotion to wash my hair - so weird. I have to order more Paula's shampoo immediately!

I will buy this forever


Please do not ever discontinue this. It is so hard to find a simple shampoo with no fragrance that is not stripping and harsh. This formula is perfect and gets the job done beautifully. Clean healthy looking hair, no fragrance, and I've noticed this cleans my hair way better (without irritiating my scalp!) than my other shampoos and I can go an extra day without washing. Gives my fine thick hair good volume, bounce and shine. Please consider making a little travel size of this and the conditioner!

Didn't clean my hair at all


I'm sensitive to fragrances in products and have been searching for a good unscented gentle shampoo and gave this one a try. First off, it didn't lather at all, I felt like I had to keep adding more. My hair still felt dirty and looked somewhat greasy after it dried. Then my scalp started to itch and had build up of what i guess was oil because I don't use any products in my hair. I used it for 3 weeks just to see if it got better and it didn't. I love all the other products I've bought from Paula's choice, but this one was a dud. The conditioner is great though so there's that.




Red, Irritated Skin


I wrote a review for this product and it has not been posted. This body wash lathers well and rinses easily, but the previous formula was gentle and moisturizing. The current formula causes my legs and neck to be red, itchy and oh so irritated. I had to use cortisone cream on the affected areas. It took a week for my skin to calm down. I love PC products and have been using them 13 years, but this body wash is so bad for skin. Paula's Choice previous body wash was gentle enough to use on baby's skin. Bring back the old body wash please!!!

I just discovered why my skin becomes dry, itchy and eczema prone in winter. It's because of Paula's Choice body wash!!! I have been using PC body wash since its introduction. The old formula was quite moisturizing with its cocoa, mango and shea butters. It was perfect for dry, winter skin. The new formula does not contain any of the mentioned moisturizers. When I use this body wash, my legs, arms and neck become red, itchy and just downright irritated. As soon as I discontinue its use my skin calms down. Try again Paula!!!

My whole family's favorite!


I buy tons of this as my whole family uses it as a body wash. It's the only product I've found that truly has no fragrance. It doesn't compete with other smells like deodorant or conditioner. My daughter and I use it also as a shampoo as we have curly hair and mostly follow the "Curly Girl Method". The ingredients are cleansing enough to get our scalp clean and gentle enough to not dry out our hair more, which is super important for curls and for my dyed hair. The only downside is the container. I wish it wasn't so hard to open and close. Not a huge deal when it's upright (we leave the lid down, but not closed). But when we've used 3/4 of the product, we like to turn it upside down so it comes out quicker, and you need to fully close it so it doesn't leak out everywhere, and then when you force it open it can explode everywhere. I sometimes put it in a better container, but that's a pain. Even so, it's still my family's favorite body wash/shampoo.

great product, terrible bottle


This has been my daily shampoo & body wash for years. It's one of the few that doesn't leave my scalp itchy. The formula is just right to clean without drying. And it's SO convenient to be able to use the same gentle formula as both shampoo & body wash. But the bottle! Please, please put it back into a basic round bottle with the standard push-down dispenser. (I now transfer the product into a regular bottle myself.) The current bottle is hard to use is almost every way: hard to open, shut, control the amount, get the last bits out. One note about this perfectly gentle shampoo: If you have a lot of styling product in your hair you'll need to shampoo twice or use a stronger shampoo like Free & Clear.

Very good shampoo, but the bottle...


The shampoo formula is very good. I love that it is non-irritating and mild. However, the container is not good. The flip top is rounded and so you can't stand it upside down. The bottle is thin-walled and this makes retrieving shampoo from the bottle hard to handle. Poor bottle design.




Keep Making this Shampoo Forever, Please


I love this shampoo! It leaves my hair shiny and full, but the best part is that using this product helped clear up my back acne. I discovered this on accident, when I realized that I only get back acne when I don't use this shampoo. Now it's the only shampoo I use.
