Great smelling shampoo

Post by Sam » Wed Nov 28, 2018 9:02 am

Ok, I have thin hair and not much. Use a one or two guard for clippers. Very thin on top. So for a couple of years, I have been using bar soap when I shower for shampoo. Found an old bottle of Aveda Rosemary Mint shampoo and it was invirgorating. Not much of an effect on my hair. So, I was wondering, what is a great smelling shampoo that I can get a small bottle of just for the scent? We have Ulta, the usual salons, and a couple of men-only barbers that might carry Paul Mitchell and maybe things like American Crew.

Sam, I don't require a shampoo that imparts a lasting fragrance, so my experience with shampoo from popular cosmetic or perfume brands is non-existent, but the ones I've used and enjoyed for their scent are Ginger from The Body Shop (recommended by jww - Wendell), and Nancy Boy shampoo. Both of them offer small bottles and are of good quality. Neither is very expensive unless shipping costs are involved.

Sam, I’ve been using Woody’s Daily Shampoo for a few years now. It has kind of a citrus cedar wood scent.
Regards,
Mike

Mike, I want to smell that one. I think Target carries it. Smelled a huge bottle of American Crew at Ross. Also been reading up on Every Man Jack and Redken Beer shampoo and though pricey, Jack Black for thin hair

I have a supply of the previous version of The Body Shop's Ginger Shampoo for normal hair. This product has morphed to a scalp care product (perhaps helpful for those who are becoming more follically challenged??) and they now sell a Green Tea based product as their normal hair shampoo.

Whatever the name, I find their products to be quite good - especially for the price.

Got me some Every Man Jack 3 in 1 stuff at Target. Supposed to be pretty much all natural. No sodium laurly sulfates, and all that stuff. Scent is sandalwood. Used it with a bath puff and wow, that stuff lathers like crazy. Scent is nice, and does not linger like some stuff. Hair is truly softer than using bar soap. Does not seem to be drying on the skin when used as a shower gel.

33 ounces was $9.99. Was going to try some Woody's but got this instead since, well, cheaper, more versatile and no SLS
