Pleasing scent, lathers well, does not burn your eyes or scalp, for me with short hair, it goes a long way, and I wash my hair and face with this shampoo and it is absolutely great.
25/08/2023, By Jay
On paper, it ticks all the right boxes, however, it dried out my hair and caused quite a bit of shedding. I have soft, curly afro hair (4a hair type).
17/01/2023, By Liza
Makes my hair feel "normal" again. I have wavy hair with a bit of a frizz and I use to buy shampoos that was giving me an oily scalp after a day. My hair still needs moisture for the frizz but at least its not greasy any more on my roots so I was less
06/01/2023, By Reegan
Made my hair rather oily after a week or two of use... Not usually someone with oily hair but I do have a lot of it and exercise often (sweaty helmet hair can get oily) so I was disappointed.
29/03/2022, By Rienkies
I love the Africa Organics Marula shampoo. I've been using it for a number of years & have never been disappointed. I buy the 1 litre pump bottle and it lasts me at least 6 - 8 months. It doesn't burn my eyes as all other shampoos I have used in the past
07/06/2021, By Melissa
I bought the smallest container, but I don't think it is going to last long, as the product does not lather well and you end up using more than what is probably needed.
12/05/2021, By Psy
Simple and efficient shampoo. I wish I did not buy the smallest product. Did not last very long.
06/05/2021, By Carla
Lathers and cleans well without stripping my medium/fine hair. I would give it 5 stars if there was a 500ml option with a pump.
19/04/2021, By Johanna
I'm sure this product if great for thin, dryer hair. For me, it doesn't lather well enough to reach all of the scalp.
22/03/2021, By Dianne
This is a nice, gentle shampoo that doesn't strip the hair.
11/12/2020, By Lunell
Cleans well but you have to use large amounts.

Like it for my normal hair. Doesn’t make it too oily or too dry
12/11/2020, By Lailaa
Smells really good. Love that it's all natural. Leaves my hair feeling soft and smooth
26/10/2020, By Madeleine
I wrote a review earlier where I stated that this shampoo had an odd smell. I ordered a new smell and delighted to find there is no more odd smell. Great stuff and works excellently
25/10/2020, By Amy
Leaves my hair shiny and silky.
21/10/2020, By Tania
I used to use another natural shampoo which I loved, but it got too expensive as the price shot up a lot. Tried a few shampoos and this one is closest to what I had, hair does not knot if I use my conditioner with it, and my hair is still soft and helps with the frizz. The smell is just weird, almost a toothpasty smell and a weird other smell but bearable for natural hair that looks good.
09/10/2020, By madeleine
I have used this shampoo for about 2 years now, with other natural shampoos as l like to alternate. I find it washes very well, your hair is squeaky clean, but the smell is odd, but bearable. I use it despite the smell as it cleans so well
15/08/2020, By Talya
Been using this product for 2 years and I still love it. My hair is silky smooth and smells amazing. And it's vegan and anti-animal cruelty~!
12/08/2020, By Abby
Hands down the best shampoo I've used, love that it's all natural!
03/07/2020, By Gwen
This shampoo not only smells divinely fresh (minty), it also leaves your hair squeaky-clean, but without stripping it.

Gorgeous scent
30/03/2020, By Larisa
Bought this for my husband and used it on my kids' hair as well. Smells divine and hair is quite soft
22/02/2020, By Eco
Real shampoo
28/01/2020, By Sarah
I bought the 40ml tube of both the shampoo and conditioner to try out. I enjoyed them and will be using the bigger size in the future.
18/12/2019, By Bosnimf
This is great, my hair feels softer and healthier the longer I have been using it. It smells great and compared to the earthsap I used to use I don't have to wash every day anymore. I also love that it comes in 1l.
27/11/2019, By Clair
It used to work really well on my oily hair, but now my hair gets oily more quickly. Not sure why
19/10/2019, By AnnieG
My personal experience: I have an eczema prone scalp, so I thought this would moisturise and soothe it, but sadly it doesn’ leaves a slight oily residue and I have to wash my hair every second day because it gets so oily and my scalp gets so itchy.
13/10/2019, By Jessica
I use much more of this shampoo than I would normally would with other soap-free shampoos. It cleans my hair thoroughly, and my hair is more voluminous. However, my hair gets more oily more quickly.
03/10/2019, By Sarah
This shampoo is absolutely wonderful and paired with its complementary conditioner its a winning combination. It did take my hair a while to adjust to the non-chemical shampoo but once it did I haven't looked back
03/10/2019, By Sarah
I love the smell of this shampoo! While my hair took some time to adjust from chemical based shampoo, I can’t imagine using any other shampoo! My hair is lush and healthy and my scalp is not caked with product.
18/08/2019, By Jennifer
I have bought this a few times and love everything about it.
23/07/2019, By Robyn
Love the smell
23/07/2019, By F
Leaves the hair lsoft and silky, great smell, but hair tends to fall out alot
12/07/2019, By Organic
Perfect for everyday use. Doesn't strip hair of natural oil
10/07/2019, By Jenni
I bought this product along with the conditioner as a gift to my mother and her hair looks amazing now. The Asian shine on the hair is back. Her hair look amazingly healthy after a month. I know where to buy my hair products now.
10/06/2019, By Laurie
Great product!! My husband uses all the body stuff from this brand and loves it! Doesn't have the "feminine" smell he says!!! Just a pleaseant, neutral one!!
23/05/2019, By Tania
This does clean really well and doesn't leave any residue
11/05/2019, By Liana
Amazing product! My hair has never felt this good and it stays cleaner for longer!
30/04/2019, By L
Love this shampoo. It leaves my hair feeling amazing and I love the smell.
03/04/2019, By CWDW
After years of bleaching/colouring my hair, I've finally decided to go back to my natural colour and to stop using shampoos and conditioners filled with nasties. Africa Organics Marula Hair Care has been a fine choice, for my first adventure into natural hair products. The shampoo lathers well with a second (small) application and has pleasant peppermint smell. It might be a little overpowering for some people. It definitely leaves my hair squeaky clean. The conditioner is quite light (not thick, as I'm used to with the commercial ones). All in all, I'm a happy convert.
01/04/2019, By Rikus
Lovely smell. Excellent price. Leaves hair feeling properly clean
26/03/2019, By Melissa
I purchased the Shampoo and conditioner combo and I can honestly say these are by far the worst products I have ever purchased. The shampoo created a build up on my scalp and the conditioner left my hair dried out.
10/03/2019, By Fiona
Wanted to give this a fair go before reviewing but can't recommend it. My hair never really felt clean and the smell is not great either.
05/03/2019, By Clair
I have used this shampoo with its matching conditioner for a while now and I really like it. It leaves my hair so soft and shiny.
I have oily hair and I have to wash it a bit more frequently than with commercial shampoo, but it's worth it to use a natural product.
25/01/2019, By valerieK
I have been using this shampoo for a few years now. It is great, but not as good as the Mongogo one for curly hair.
I wish African Organics started to pack the Mongogo shampoo in a 1L bottle too!
In the meanitme I will catty on using it.
03/12/2018, By Love it
Great brand wonderful products
27/11/2018, By Melissa
It is a little too runny but the smell is great and it leaves my hair feeling fresh.
19/11/2018, By Nikki
Does not lather but I think is still a nice product.
18/11/2018, By ReneRose
Lovely shampoo. Refreshing smell. Possibly better for greasy hair, as a little drying.
03/11/2018, By Kathryn
I got a free sample of this shampoo with a previous order and LOVE it! Gorgeous smell and works well on my fine, thin and somewhat oily hair that needs washing daily. I'm going to be buying the 1 litre bottle with my next FTN order and can't wait to use it again!
28/10/2018, By Anonymous
I love this product it's totally organic. It smells so gud makes you want to eat it. Makes my hair feel soft and clean. Great size options for travel purposes and bulk gor great savings.
27/10/2018, By Lou
It has a nice smell and leaves your hair feeling clean
02/10/2018, By Jennifer
This is a lovely shampoo which leaves my hear clean and smelling great.
21/09/2018, By Nicole
Smells amazing and really does the job.
23/08/2018, By Maxine
I was dissapointed at first to be honest. My hair never fell right and looked dead when I used this shampoo. I then switched to shampoo bars. And it was so much worse and in desparation I went back to this. And my hair feels so soft and fall nicely. So glad. It does make a difference washing twice though. But
07/06/2018, By Lesley
This product is amazing leaves your hair so soft and silky, I love it
15/05/2018, By Karen
The product is good but the pump on the large one broke in no time. I had bought 2 and the same thing happened to the second one. If they can get past the packaging issue, I would buy this again.
02/05/2018, By Irene
Being one that lives for natural body products, I am very satisfied with this natural shampoo, it works great.
27/04/2018, By Kate
I love that this product is sulphate free and healthy for me. I have fine hair and my hair always feels clean, soft and nourished after using it. It has a fresh smell and foams well.
18/04/2018, By Claire
Unfortunately, this shampoo really didn't work for me. It made my scalp dry and itchy (a problem I've never experienced before) and my hair felt like straw. I tried using apple cider vinegar with it and pairing it with a conditioner, which helped with the itchy scalp but my hair still felt like straw after washing.
10/04/2018, By Fernace
It takes 2 or 3 washes for it to rid the chemicals from commercial shampoos out of your hair, but once it does the results are fantastic!

For someone with dry, frizzy/curly hair I cannot recommend this product enough!
09/04/2018, By Clare
Another product I have used over many years. I like being able to order a small quantity for travel purposes.
07/03/2018, By Kirsten
Good smell. Lasts longer than most shampoos.
10/02/2018, By Isabel
loved this product. Great smell and leaves my permed hair feeling like silk. Also use with the conditionner
30/01/2018, By Paula
Wonderful smelling product. My hair felt quite dry after shampooing but when paired with the matching conditioner it rectifies it. On the first use I was not convinced, but I gave it 3 washes and have noticed that my hair is in a much better condition. Hubby loved it and asked me to buy it again.
23/01/2018, By Kat
Definitely not the right shampoo for my curly/frizzy hair and oily scalp. This shampoo knots my hair while washing(not sure why), so not much lather created and knots make proper cleaning restrictive. Wet hair feels "squeaky" after washing and looks oily immediately after drying. Lovely smell though!
17/01/2018, By Rienkies8
My hair is so much better when I use this shampoo. I wish my hairdresser would use it
24/12/2017, By Brenda
Leaves my hair feeling like straw
19/12/2017, By Nellie S
I have used this shampoo before and like the fresh peppermint smell. The shampoo is gentle and lathers well after the first rinse. It serves my fine, curly hair well.
04/12/2017, By siri
My skin is quite dry, and I bought this to use at night. I'm still using it, but I find it leaves my face feeling a bit tight, which isn't my favourite. Smells beautiful though.
05/11/2017, By Ladypenny
I switched from expensive hair products I have always used because my hair is so fine, to this product with trepidation. I am pleasantly surprised. My hair is clean, but not fly away & does not get greasy as quickly.
08/10/2017, By TJ
I think I may just need to adjust to low foam. Smells good though.
25/07/2017, By Rene
Despite the lovely smell and fresh hair, it leaves my hair quite dry and knotty. Perhaps it would be better using it with the conditioner? Or maybe for ladies/men with shorter hair.

13/07/2017, By Max
I really like this shampoo. It has that lovely, noticeable scent that you get with Victorian Garden products and a price tag that matches the Earthsap products. I find the mint scent to be nothing but refreshing, my hair is soft and healthy and it lasts a month and a bit between two people (every day wash). I have noticed that with natural shampoos, it helps to use a little to get the hair clean first, rinse and repeat. It lathers very well the second time round and helps keep that straw-like texture after washing at bay. This method hasn't unreasonably affected how far it stretches for us.
11/07/2017, By Cobie
A great shanpoo at great cost. Gentle and works up a good lather.
11/07/2017, By Kaja
Whilst I do agree that the texture is jelly like and it doesn't foam a lot and leaves the hair knotty, I still like this product. Its gentle to my scalp, good for oily hair and I love the smell of it.
06/07/2017, By Cristina
Appealing packaging and loved the fact that it's available in 1lt as to minimize packaging use and improve cost. Shampoo however doesn't deliver. Texture is somewhat jelly like and does not foam at all. Appears to also not clean very well. Wont be buying again.
22/06/2017, By Anje
Lovely, clean smell but my hair got very knotty even using it with the conditioner. It might work better for short hair.

Great shampoo for normal/oily hair. Excellent value for money.
25/05/2017, By Malikah
I bought the small 40ml bottle, along with the matching Conditioner together, just to test it out. My hair really does feel clean and smooth after usage, plus there's the added bonus that it's all organic/natural ingredients which makes me so happy!
24/05/2017, By Arline
I like the idea of it not containing harsh foaming agents, but the downside is getting a good lather is difficult :( - but smells good, cleans fine, my hair looks great
22/05/2017, By Megan
I'm not impressed with the shampoo or conditioner. With the shampoo, you have to use a lot to cover your hair as it doesn't make a lot of foam, it drastically tangles my hair and makes it feel like straw. It also doesn't clean my hair properly-just the crown and everything else remains oily with over dried tips. Resulting in me having to wash my hair very day, can't even us other products because it's so oil. So I tried to leave in the conditioner for a longer time. It doesn't work. I just end up wasting water while waiting in the shower and a head full of knotted hair. Which has cost me a trip to my hairdresser to get a treatment and salvage the points. Regrettably, one of the worst shampoo's and conditioners I've used.
05/04/2017, By Andrea
I bought the shampoo and Conditioner to try it out and unfortunately found that a little does not go a long way I had to use half the bottle to cover my hair and it did not lather up, the conditioner is also very watery and doesn seem to soften my hair, it smells really great but just didn work for me.
11/01/2017, By Suzanne
Love my hair and love my products. I buy this from my local supplier and simply love the smell of peppermint. I use it hand-in-hand with the conditioner and just love the volumising effect it has!
28/12/2016, By Titania
I love the earthly smell! It leaves my hair clean and feeling natural. And it is cheaper than many other shampoos you buy at the pharmacy.
13/06/2016, By Carla
I can say I am mad about this shampoo - the smell is a bit too minty fresh and it does not clean my hair so I won be buying this again
16/05/2016, By Megan
Smells great but I found it made my hair sticky straight after the wash. It probably just isn right for my hair which is still oily. Will work great for dry / normal hair.
26/04/2016, By Carla
This shampoo as well as the conditioner feels gentle and natural on my hair, leaving it clean and shiny. I look forward to every application because of the minty fragrance that refreshes my senses and scalp. Love this product!
13/03/2016, By Liezel
i was happy that i could try the sample size first and although my hair is squeaky clean and the spearmint fragrance is quite invigorating, the mintness is too tingly for my sensitive scalp.
16/02/2016, By Catherine
I bought a sample size of this shampoo just to try before buying a bigger bottle, and I have already popped the 1l bottle into my cart for my next FTN order- its awesome! I have struggled a bit with finding natural shampoos, but this stuff is great. It doesn strip the hair, has a good consistency and lathers really well. It smells really pepperminty, almost like toothpaste, but I really love it. Great product, I think I found my new fav :)
05/02/2016, By Alta
It works well but you have to use a lot. I have VERY short hair now and need the same amount to foam, as what I used to need when using commercial shampoo on my long hair. But Id say its worth it! I have not tried other natural shampoos yet, but so far this one is good(on my oily hair).
11/11/2015, By Rensche
HIerdie is n goeie produk. Dit skuim nie vreeslik baie nie en daarom voel dit of ek meer as ander shampoo moet gebruik. Maar dit ruik lekker en my hare is skoon. Goeie waarde vir geld.
16/07/2015, By Binta
Ive been using this shampoo for about 6 months, and really love it. It took some getting used to both the smell and lack of lather, but my hair is in great condition since using it. Ive even noticed some new hair growth, which Im sure is due to not using hard chemicals on my hair. Bye-bye commercial shampoo forever!
04/07/2015, By Jessica
I decided to try this one after the Victorian Garden hair stuff got too expensive. I must say that I was not expecting the super pepperminty smell... Ive gotten used to it now, and my hair smells nice for a while afterwards, while still wet.
In terms of what the shampoo (and conditioner) does for my hair, I am very happy with it. I will probably buy again, the only thing that makes me hesitate is the super pepperminty smell...Perhaps the next one I buy will be from a different batch and smell better.
22/06/2015, By nicki
I love this shampoo. It smells amazing and the fragrance lingers. It doesnt foam as well as commercial products but it washes well
16/04/2015, By Kariena
Not happy about this product. The only good thing about it is that it smells nice. NOT GOOD FOR MY HAIR
13/04/2015, By Varsha
absolutely love this range of clean, green shampoo. smells great- my hair feels amazing- with no after products or extra work needed to get it tame and looking good
28/03/2015, By Petro
I have very long hair , and wash it every night, unfortunately I have also developed a very sensitive scalp, I have been looking for a product that does not urn my scalp after a couple of uses for more than a year, I have FINALLY found it. This is such a gentle shampoo and it washes my long hair beautifully clean . IfI use any other comercial shampoo for more than a day I am rewarded with an allergic reaction.
My hair is shiny and healthy even though I wash it frequently, GREAT GREAT GREAT product
21/01/2015, By Darren Lee Heunis
I was skeptical as its my first time being introduced to Natural Organic products, we so prone to knowing only the Top brands and chemical substances... but this is an amazing product that blew me away! Just bought the R13.00 product, and going to buy my 210ml! Its fresh fragrance of marula!, plus no need for conditioner makes your hair soft and so smooth. Only need a little of this stuff trust me! :)
27/10/2014, By Sharon
I was about to give up on natural shampoos and conditioners after trying 3 other brands that left my hair limp and greasy after a day. I then bought a R13 tube of this shampoo and conditioner as a last attempt! So glad I did, am thrilled with the result on my hair! Soft and silky.
12/05/2014, By Beulah
This shampoo has a lovely fresh feel and fragrance. Cleans hair nicely - I would recommend it.
18/03/2014, By leisl
Very unhappy with this product - left hair feeling very dry and didn seem to clean very well either ... cannot recommend unfortunately.
17/03/2014, By Tamarin
My husband is using this product and he is really happy. His hair is also so nice and soft. No need for conditioner for him.
29/11/2013, By Eloise
This is a great natural shampoo. Many natural shampoos are very thin and runny and/or doesn really foam up or clean well. This is wonderful, and thick and cleans like a dream. The scent is a soft mint, suitable for men and women. My hair loves it.
31/10/2013, By Kashmiri
I also like the smell of the Marula shampoo, and it also leaves my hair in a much better condition with prolonged use.
Very economical for a natural shampoo in my opinion!
06/10/2013, By Jo
I love this product - personally I love the smell :) I found that the 220ml lasted me a month (long hair) so, pretty economical for me. After using it for 2 months my hair is in much better condition than before. I use it with the Marula conditioner too...
02/10/2013, By Kiara
I agree, the smell is terrible, I got the shampoo and conditioner and I am disappointed with both, my hair was dry and tangled after using this, I tried to persist but after a week I gave up, luckily I ordered Nautica Argan oil so I could repair the damage, very disappointing.
30/09/2013, By Gaye
You need quite alot to get a decent lather so its not at all economical and the smell of the shampoo is just awful.
