Please Note: It is possible that some people can experience a 'hair detox' when first using organic Hair Shampoos. This is because those people have been using shampoo products containing silicone derivatives. For the first two or three washes, the hair may seem dryer and more tangled. However, if you follow your shampoo with one of natural/organic Hair Conditioner treatments, the problem will be lessened and your hair should settle down into good condition very quickly.

I have tried a few organic/natural shampoos but this is by far the best. My hair feels soft and nourished and the aroma is delightful.
19/01/2022, By Ashleigh
Lovely product with anazing ingredients and a great smell, but I found the shampoo a bit too drying for my already-dry hair type.
08/05/2021, By Jeaninne
Lathers nicely and leaves my hair feeling clean. No residue to weigh my hair down. Love it. Although it needs to be paired with another product, like heat protective spray of conditioner in order to detangle hair.

05/05/2021, By Glenda
I bought this together with the compatible conditioner and as I mentioned there a good shampoo however a bit pricey.
05/05/2021, By Glenda
A nice product, but I also think a bit pricey. The end result is not much different to a "cheaper" natural product that I am now currently using (not bought from FTN).
29/04/2021, By Kat
Smells lovely, works well. Definitely moisturising, so you don't need any / much conditioner depending on your hair.
Just pretty pricey.
04/03/2021, By Kelly
Leaves my hair nice and soft even before conditioner
02/02/2021, By Karin

At last I found a shampoo that my husband and my son love! This is now a regular order in our household. Lovely smell, hair feels fresh and soft. Highly recommended!
06/10/2020, By Nadine
I use this with the vanilla and argan conditioner. Great brand that never disappoints!
09/08/2020, By Michelle
I absolutely love this shampoo! I've tried so many on my fine hair and finally found a keeper. Smells amazing, foams nicely and doesn't leave an oily feel on the scalp.
25/06/2020, By Tanya
Amazing product
23/06/2020, By Marlize
Love this! Wish it wasn’t in plastic though..

Leaves my hair soft and well nourished
28/10/2019, By Kat
Smells great, cleans well, and nourishes as it says leaving your hair soft. I don't have to use a conditioner with this shampoo, which I like because conditioners tend to make my hair too greasy and lank. Not the cheapest though.
24/09/2019, By Imo
Did nothing for me
08/08/2019, By Lyn
09/07/2019, By Claudia
Lovely thick shampoo which goes a long way, produces a good lather, and has a wonderful smell. Cleans hair wonderfully without drying it out.
11/05/2019, By Mel
We tried this once and now order in bulk along with the conditioner from the Victorian Garden range. It lathers & cleans well. Like the smell too
11/05/2019, By Liana
Smells awful, but works well on my hair!
07/05/2019, By AG
While I have oily roots, I thought I would nevertheless try this moisturising shampoo for normal/dry hair as my ends tend to be dry. At first, I had to rinse and repeat to feel like my hair was properly clean, but after a couple of weeks of use, I found my scalp noticeably less oily. This miracle product helped balance oiliness like no other and now I can delay washing an extra day, and I can wash as usual, without repeating. My hair has never been softer and smoother. Really lovely fragrance too. Best shampoo ever!
24/04/2019, By Bianca
I love this shampoo. My hair feels so soft afterwards and I am in love with the smell.
11/04/2019, By Tersia
Foams very well and my hair feels squeeky clean, although I can still feel some tangles after washing - which disappears when using the VG argan conditioner afterwards.
10/04/2019, By Louise
Received this as a sample and love it. My hair is soft and shiny. Love the smell
22/01/2019, By Henda
Fantastic even on fine, colour treated hair. Rinses out easily. Leaves no residue. Hair feels soft but still light. I have tried various natural shampoos and this one is right up there with the best ones. Not the biggest fan of the fragrance but the product itself is great.
17/01/2019, By T
I think the shampoo would have different results on different hair types. It did not work well at all on my Indian ancestry hair - I had to use a lot of product as my hair is thick. The texture of my hair after washing was disappointing - you would have to follow with a very good conditioner.
15/01/2019, By A
Early stages, and I do rub some morrocan oil in my hands and run it through my hair, before ironing or blow drying
But for now my hair is feeling smooth, not dry and shiny
19/12/2018, By Anne
It foams up and leaves my hair feeling si soft and it does not dry out my hair. It's a really great shampoo.
29/11/2018, By Katta
Makes my hair really dry, will try another shampoo soon because this one really doesn't work for me.
15/11/2018, By Anonymous
I received this as a sample a couple of times. Really a fantastic product. My hair is shiny squeeky clean.
31/10/2018, By Suné
I've received this as a sample and it is AMAZING! It smells divine as well!
25/10/2018, By Shelly
Good hair
22/10/2018, By Cher
A little goes a long way leaving hair perfectly clean and smells great too.
27/09/2018, By Stella
I usually struggle with oily hair and have to wash it more often but since I’ve started using this shampoo I can go a day longer without feeling the need to wash my hair. It also smells amazing!
31/07/2018, By Rehal
I had to use quite a bit of product as I have long hair and it was not foaming as much as I expected, but the smell is great and my hair feels smooth and silky today. I think the result will be even better when using a conditioner from the same brand, I will try that next time.
04/07/2018, By Megan
Cleans hair well but leaves my hair feeling a bit coarse, there are far better shampoos that cost much less that I have used
22/06/2018, By Sam
I love the vanilla scent
21/06/2018, By Imo
Was disappointed in this shampoo. Maybe because I have thick hair, it doesn't seem to foam all that well. Wont buy again.
21/06/2018, By Noleen
Lovely shampoo. Works well, smells great. My hair has never been in a better condition!
21/06/2018, By Presha
lovely scent which stays on till the next wash but i do find the victorian garden products quite pricey for the quantities
21/06/2018, By Annlerie
This shampoo is fantastic - nice fragrance, you use just a little and cleans my hair beautifully. I have tried others, but always come back to this.
21/06/2018, By Tracey
The scent is just fantastic. Cleans better than another brand I tried in the past few months.
21/06/2018, By Jolane
love the smell, great shampoo and only need a small amount.
21/06/2018, By Lorna
Gosh, I love this shampoo! It smells beautiful, and is thick and luxurious. I love how my hair feels when I use it. And I only need to use a tiny bit.
21/06/2018, By Maxine
this is a wonderful shampoo for dry curly hair, just sad that the product leaked substantially during transit.
21/06/2018, By Ursula
Awesome product leaving my hair squeeky clean! I use it with Argan and Vanilla conditioner - perfect combination for long highlighted hair. Just sad that I lost some product through leakage during postage...
21/06/2018, By Carol
Product great but bottle not sealed so leaked into carton and onto other purchase made :(
21/06/2018, By Marna
Ek het nog nooit so n fantastiese shampoo gehad nie. My hare blink en het baie meer volume as ooit te vore!! Sommer weer n wip in my stap!!
21/06/2018, By Jeanne J
My favourite shampoo. It smells wonderful and lathers brilliantly so you need a tiny amount which is just as well because it is expensive.
21/06/2018, By None
At long last I have finally found a really good hair shampoo that is animal friendly and smells lovely. My hair loves it !!!!
21/06/2018, By Brenda
My hair is looking so great, feels and looks clean and smells amazing. Am really happy with this shampoo. It does leak a bit during shipping though.
21/06/2018, By Brenda
Loved this shampoo. It lasted long, was a great consistency and smelt great.
21/06/2018, By Katja
WOW! This shampoo has the best smell! Leaves my hair soft!
21/06/2018, By Christelle
This shampoo is wonderful! I've been using it for about 6 months & it keeps my hair squeaky clean with no residue build up as with "normal" shampoos.
I have naturally curly hair & a bottle lasts me about 2-3 months. Great value!

I'd suggest a packaging change when sending the product, as I've had it leak twice now. This however is not a fault with the product. :)
21/06/2018, By mignon
I love this product! will definitely buy it again! makes your hair feel clean moisturise at the same time, a very rare combination. My hair was shiny easy to style
21/06/2018, By Mireille
To be honest, Im not sure how good it is... I received a sample and bought one just for the smell :P
21/06/2018, By Lynn
This shampoo smells delicious and has a nice consistency. Unfortunately it makes my scalp itch. It may be the cocoamidopropyl betaine which is listed as a potential allergy agent on the US eczema website.
21/06/2018, By Romy
This has to be the best all natural hair product range I have tried. My hair gets quite dry and brittle and this product leave it soft and silky and smelling delicious.
21/06/2018, By Nicolette
Love this shampoo.....but I love my conditioner more! TVG should really think about making a argan oil vanilla compliment the conditioner. However this product is also lovely, leaves your hair feeling healthy and clean and its cruelty free which I LOVE!!!! Might be a good thing to think about re-thinking the bottles....not very easy to get out of the bottle :) same with conditioner!
21/06/2018, By Carol Anne
What a pleasure this shampoo is to use - gentle, lathers well and does not strip my colour. Very happy.
21/06/2018, By Abigail
Definitely one of the best shampoos. Lathers incredibly well (the best out of all natural shampoos); a little goes a long way! This makes it the most pleasant to use as well. Smell is amazing; the vanilla stands out with just a subtle herbyish smell, not an overpowering rosemary smell. As a person with fine, straight hair I would usually shy away from a shampoo labelled as moisturising, thinking it would be too heavy but this is surprisingly not and cleans well.
21/06/2018, By Adrienne
Smells divine, lathers well and a little goes a long way. Lasts much longer than the other natural shampoos Ive tried.
21/06/2018, By Leigh
The whole family uses this. I have very brightly coloured, damaged hair and it does not fade my colour any more than expensive salon shampoos but has the benefit of being natural.
21/06/2018, By Lauren
I love this shampoo, it doesn leave my hair oily in patches like a lot of natural shampoos have done, it even foams more than most natural shampoos without the use of harsh foaming agents. My hair stays cleaner for longer and the shampoo last way longer than other I have ever used. I also don even need to use conditioner anymore :) Great value for money for an awesome shampoo!
21/06/2018, By Elsabe
Doesn leave my hair looking oily or too dry like some of the other shampoos and not too harsh on my sensitive scalp.
21/06/2018, By Carla
Dont like rosemary products usually but this smells divine. People comment on how lovely my hair smells when Ive used it. It foams well, cleans well, feels good and rinses off well. My current favourite shampoo!
21/06/2018, By Carla
Best shampoo ever
21/06/2018, By Elizabeth
I am hooked on Victorian Gardens shampoo and conditioner range. This is the most superb shampoo I have ever tried! A little goes a long way - I can lather my entire head with a tiny bit. It smells divine. My hair stays cleaner for longer. From the very first wash, my hair got back a bit of bounce and shine. And my hair is now slightly curly - how I have tried in vain before to get my natural curl to assert itself with other products! I love it!
21/06/2018, By Karien
I love this shampoo - it leaves my (dry, coloured) hair soft and moisturised, without making it greasy. Two thumbs up.
21/06/2018, By moira
This is one of the better natural shampoos out there. It foams beautifully and only the smallest amount is needed. Enjoying this one.
21/06/2018, By Mel
The whole family is using this shampoo. It is really wonderful: it cleans, moisturises and lasts. Better than most salon brands I have used in the past.
21/06/2018, By Anva
after a great search I have finaly found the one! this shampoo is great, i have fine but curly hair and this foams nicely, rinses easily and leaves no residue. only grumble is that my hair is a bit tangly and dry after but the right conditioner will fix that. im using the argan and vanilla conditioner and its works great too
21/06/2018, By Luane
I am liking this shampoo - I find there is no need for 2 washes but then I do have short hair - so for me a little goes a long way and it leaves my hair feeling clean and fresh.
21/06/2018, By Elisa
Love this product. Been looking for a good shampoo, and this one fits the bill. Lathers nicely and leaves ones hair feeling gentle and shiny.
21/06/2018, By Shannon
I have tried a few other products but this one is great. A little goes along way, lathers up nicely, has an amazing smell, leaves my hair feeling amazing. Will definitely buy this again and again!!
21/06/2018, By Ruth
I only need a tiny amount to spread and lather well, smells awesome and cleans beautifully!
21/06/2018, By Nevashini
this shampoo smells heavenly while washing, it leaves my long hair really clean and soft, i workout daily and find that with this I only need to wash my hair twice a week. a little goes a long way so don use too much. I really love doing hot oil treatments and find that this shampoo washes away all the oil without me having to re-repeat, amazing coz not even commercial crap can do that. i wish the scent would linger a bit more after my hair dries, other than that this is some awesome stuff.
21/06/2018, By Cheri
Smells fantastic and foams up like a proper shampoo! It did take a couple washes for my hair to get used to it - but I am very happy with the results. will definitely buy again.
21/06/2018, By Izabela
See title ... thats all you need to know!
21/06/2018, By Mieke
I love this shampoo. It leaves my scalp feeling super, and it smells fantastic.
21/06/2018, By Elaine
Sadly this shampoo did not work on my very sensitive (eczema) scalp, it made my hair and scalp feel very dry. I did not want to waste the product, so I decided to use it as a body wash, and its great! It also smell very nice.
21/06/2018, By Jessica
This stuff is great! It smells more of rosemary than vanilla, which is not what I expected, but I’ve grown to like the rosemary smell, it smells nice and fresh. I did find that the first few washes left my hair quite tangled, but after that my hair got used to the natural shampoo and now it feels great – so soft! It doesn’t foam as much as commercial shampoos do, which took some getting used to, and so I used more than I probably should, but I think I have figured it out now and I am using less shampoo per wash than with my commercial shampoos.
21/06/2018, By Delani
I want to drink it - thats how good it smells. I have long really thick high-lighted hair so I need a shampoo that really nourishes. This shampoo does the job and I use about half a teaspoon full at a time. I don think Ill be changing to anything else any time soon.
21/06/2018, By Bianca
This shampoo a winner. I have normal to dry thick hair and am always on the lookout for great products. Victorian Garden delivers with this fabulously nourishing shampoo that leaves hair soft, but not greasy. Ohhh and did I mention the heavenly smell? Amazing!
21/06/2018, By Julia
I love this shampoo - it smells wonderful and leaves my colour-treated hair feeling very clean and soft. And I know shampoo doesn *have* to foam to do its job, but personally I really like the fact that this one lathers up, like the ordinary shampoos I was used to before switching to natural. Would definitely recommend it to anyone making the switch!
21/06/2018, By Jodi
Love this shampoo. Cleans thoroughly with just a little required. Usually I would have to wash my fine hair everyday to avoid looking greasy the next day, but now I only need to wash every 2nd day.
21/06/2018, By Inarie
I think Im in love!
This shampoo smells heavenly and you need a very very small amount to actually wash your hair. It also works beautifully with my fine hair and doesn leave my scalp dry.
Im sticking to this!
21/06/2018, By Tania
This is the first chemical free shampoo i have ever used and it was great, foamed brilliantly and my hair has felt great since the first use.
21/06/2018, By Kathleen
Bought this because of all the good reviews and... must agree, this is one of the best shampoos Ive ever used! Lathers really well and my hair feels soft! Great smell, not sickening or overpowering at all!
21/06/2018, By Susan
AGREED!! Shampoo is amazing. I am 43, very active - xercise daily, perspire a lot. Have VERY thick, long hair. I don ever blow dry my hair. Wash leave. Its so soft manageable. Love how little you need to lather a lot!! Use the Olive Vanilla conditioner too.
21/06/2018, By Christine
I have to agree with everyone above: This shampoo is just the best, especially for dry, thick, very long hair! Ive tried most of the other cheaper shampoos on this site but keep on returning to this one, as it just makes my hair feel soft and looking beautiful. I always get compliments on my hair, which I credit to my parents and Victorian Garden. This is the only shampoo I don need a conditioner with, which cuts my shower time. Happier planet too! Its just the BEST!
21/06/2018, By Marinda
I have forgotten how absolutely divine this shampoo is! I like trying out all the shampoos, so I haven't used this in a while, but it is gorgeous - like washing your hair with double-thick vanilla milkshake. You are tempted to take sip, it smells so wonderful. And it is nice and thick, lathers well and leaves your hair soft, clean and shiny. 10/10
21/06/2018, By Anita
I highly recommend this shampoo. It leaves my dry hair really silky but easy to manage. I use it together with the Rosemary and Jojoba Hair Masque, which is also brilliant.
21/06/2018, By Lauren
I do like the rich vanilla smell of this, and that it feels luxurious when lathering, and gives me the sense that it is moisurising my hair, HOWEVER, I didn't find it as effective in leaving my hair feeling clean and light, no matter how well I wash and rinse. For long hair that becomes greasy easily my favourite is still the Wild Basil and Rooibos variant.
21/06/2018, By Romy
I really enjoyed this shampoo, worked well + wasnt drying on highlighted hair.
21/06/2018, By Karen
This shampoo is great and I have course, frizzy, colour treated hair, and the smell is marvellous too!
21/06/2018, By Cheryl
My favourite! Leaves hair soft but not limp. Fabulous follow up treatment is Rosemary & Jojoba Hair Masque, not much product is required and I find it works quickly with not much waiting.
21/06/2018, By debi
this is a wonderful shampoo! i use it with the wild olive & vanilla conditioner and the results are superb.
21/06/2018, By Rochelle S
If you ever doubted organic shampoo, you should try this! I have very long, thick, wavy hair, and only expensive shampoos used to help. I tried this (together with the Wild Olive & Vanilla conditioner) and the results are amazing. I do not have to wash everyday, it stays cleaner for longer, the smell is amazing, and my hair is so soft and shiny!
21/06/2018, By Heidi
Great product and leaves my hair feeling very soft
21/06/2018, By Joline
Definitely recommended! The smell of this shampoo is divine!! It takes care of my hightlighted, dry hair beautifully without leaving a sticky residue.
21/06/2018, By Su-Ann
This shampoo is great value for money. A little goes a very long way and cleans really well. Somehow my hair seems to stay cleaner for longer too...
21/06/2018, By Heather
LOVE this product. I use it in conjunction with the Wild Olive and Vanilla conditioner and my hair has never looked, felt or smelt better! And I only have to wash my hair every 3 days instead of every 2. Highly recommended.
21/06/2018, By Liesl
Fantastic product. My hair is soft and shiny and I also didn't experience the hair detox mentioned, in fact my hairdresser wanted to know what I was using! I sometimes even wash my face with it as it is so gentle and smells so delicious!
21/06/2018, By Jacqueline1
This is a wonderful shampoo! It smells devine and adds great shine. It also cleans very well.
21/06/2018, By Candice K
I adore the smell of this product - have to stop myself from eating it. Luckily I haven't experienced the hair detox effect they mention, after switching from 'normal' shampoo, in fact, my hair is as soft and shiny as ever. I recommend this to everyone.
21/06/2018, By Jane
This is a fantastic shampoo. It lathers well and cleans superbly. Has an absolutely fabulous smell and leaves my hair lovely and soft. Even my husband loves using it. You really must try this product - it makes you want to wash your hair everyday!
21/06/2018, By Lauren
The Rosewood & Vanilla shampoo from Victorian Garden is great…so creamy and rich!
21/06/2018, By justine
Love love love it- smells so indulgant and luxurious that i have to stop myself from using it everyday, now washing my hair is more like a treat than a chore
21/06/2018, By Victoria
I love this shampoo. It leaves my hair feeling so clean, soft and shiny and I dont have to wash it as often now.
17/05/2018, By Nadine

30/01/2018, By Sun
This Shampoo is great for fast hair growth. I really like this product.
05/01/2018, By Marcia
I have always loved this product and have used it for many years, as I get eczema from ordinary shampoos (and also a lot of natural ones). However since this product has come out with new packaging, I have found the shampoo to be watered down compared to the past. Disappointing.
14/12/2017, By Nic
This shampoo is THE BEST. You only need a very little and it is so moisturising and hair has never looked better.
12/12/2017, By Liz
Great product, hair just feels a bit dry after continuously using this shampoo.
27/11/2017, By None
I love the look, smell and feel of this shampoo. It cleanses well and so gently.
18/11/2017, By Ciska
Best shampoo ever!
