My hairdresser recommended this shampoo along with the conditioner as I was looking for something that is going to clean my hair but not weigh it down. I wasn’t too keen considering the price tag but decided to bite the bullet and boy am I glad I did. I have a bob cut and although my hair is thin I have a lot of it. My hair feels shiny and clean without feeling like there’s build up in the hair. A little goes a long way so yes although it’s a little more expensive than other shampoos and conditioners- it will last a while and trust me it’s worth it.

I wanted to like this product more. My hair does not feel clean when I use it. It feels like it is putting more product in to my hair rather than making it feel clean. It does lather up a lot, and you don't need to use much. Afterwards my hair is so hard to brush. The conditioner is ok, but I would not buy the shampoo again.

WorksThis shampoo works quite well. It leaves my hair very clean and smooth. I use it together with the conditioner and they works amazingly together. Love it.
Double wash for best results~! only small amounts needed as it lathers a lotI only recently worked out I wasn't using this shampoo to the best of its ability. I was using too much product and only doing one wash. I found for best results, a double wash using a small amount of product each time left my hair looking amazing. It's super gentle on my scalp which I love!
WORSTI cannot get this shampoo to clean my hair. I usually wash my hair 2-3 times per week, with this shampoo as soon as i blow dry it I can see that my roots are still oily/dirty. I have tried using barely any product, a lot of product and even shampooing twice with a tiny amount of product but nothing works. Pretty annoying since it's $50 per bottle.
GreatThis is a great shampoo and I have re purchased many times. You only need a small amount and it lathers up great and smells lovely! I have oily roots and dry ends and I find this cleans my hair well while also giving it some much needed moisture
AMAZINGYou really get your moneys worth with this shampoo! Salon quality, only need the smallest amount and it really lathers up so well. Couldn't recommend highly enough.

Miracle worker!I love this product!
I have quite curly/frizzy blonde hair. I use both the shampoo and conditioner and also the treatment. I was originally using the treatment and really liked it so when I needed a shampoo and conditioner next I decided to try it.
My hair has NEVER felt as smooth and shiny! I noticed this after 2 washes. Totally blown away and worth EVERY cent!
Also, my shampoo has lasted for 6 months! and I've still got a while to go with the conditioner.
My hair has never been softer or smootherI have thick, dark brown hair with a very bright blonde balayage. I use Olaplex 4 as my go-to shampoo, with Olaplex 5, washing my hair every 4-5 days only.
My hair is always so soft, shiny and smooth. I often have to remind myself to not touch it so much. Just remember - A little product goes a long way!
The only thing I would say is that I do need to tone my hair more regularly as I am not using a colour shampoo now.
greati have dry frizzy long hair, and this with the conditioner has saved my hair. lasts a long time too
Amazing shampoo!I found olaplex to be all it was hyped up to be. After recently lightening my hair i purchased this after all the good things id heard & it didnt disappoint. Really makes my hair feel clean but doesnt dry it out. Would 100% recommend for anyone who colours their hair it really helps my hair feel alive again without paying in salon prices.
Great shampoo for colour treated hairI purchased this shampoo as I had read the reviews and wanted to see what the hype was about. I loved it, it smelt great and you only needed a little bit each time! This shampoo lasted a while so makes the price worth it!
Not greatI wanted to like this product more. My hair does not feel clean when I use it. It feels like it is putting more product in to my hair rather than making it feel clean. It does lather up a lot, and you don't need to use much. Afterwards my hair is so hard to brush. The conditioner is ok, but I would not buy the shampoo again.
fantastic!This stuff is magic! It makes my hair very soft and it is repairing the damage at the same time. Definitely recommend!
Highly recommend for chemically treated hairI’ve been using sulphate free shampoos for a while now however, this is the perfect shampoo for chemically treated hair. This shampoo really feels amazing and it feels as though I never chemically bleached my hair. Hair feels restored and back to its natural health only after a few weeks.
UnderwhelmingI really wanted to love this product but after a few months of use my hair is in the worst condition! A little product goes a long way, however, my hair was somehow greasy immediately after washing and the ends felt like straw. I typically was my hair a couple times a week but have found I can barely get thriugh one day without needing a rehash. Maybe it's just not right for my hair type as there are so many amazing reviews. I have fine, curly hair, but a lot of it
Best shampoo ever!Adore this shampoo! feels amazing and nourishing on my hair. Always come back to this product and will continue to purchase again and again.
Great shampoo and a little goes a long wayYes this is an expensive shampoo BUT you only need to use a small amount so a little goes a long way and that makes it not as expensive as it seems.
My fine, frizzy, brittle hair is now much stronger and healthier looking.
IncredibleI love this, super hydrating and protective, been the olaplex treatments for a while now and now use this as an alternate with my KM Blonde Angel wash, my hair is super silky and healthy!
Your hair will thank youFam. My hair went from brittle to strong. My scalp got less oily. It LOOKED better during the day. The price is a big thing, but you truly only need like a small 10c piece of it. It goes SUCH a long way.
Seems to be working so farI purchased the shampoo and conditioner and was pleasantly surprised by the scent, I expected it to smell like chemicals. I feel like the texture of my coloured hair has improved and my hair is feeling more silky. I also alternate weekly between using the number 3 Olaplex treatment or a moisturising hair mask before I wash my hair.
Such a beautiful, gentle shampoo - great for my scalp!I deeply love this shampoo. To be honest, when I first started using it I was applying too much. A little goes a very long way. Once I got this figured out I haven't looked back.
My scalp can get quite dry and irritated but Olaplex No. 4 is so kind on my scalp, I've seen massive improvements. It's also done an amazing job on maintaining my hairs health.
I love! The scent is soft and gorgeous too.
Saved my hairI have seen such amazing results since using this in conjunction with the conditioner. Saved my hair from the bleaching damage.
loveI have dry and damaged hair and usually after shampooing by hair feels dryer and tangled and I can't wait to go in with conditioner. This is the only shampoo I've ever used where my hair still feels soft and smooth before I go in with the conditioner. However, for the price and the size of the bottle (although it has lasted me over two months so far), I don't know if I'll just continue to purchase step 3 and 5 and switch to a cheaper shampoo..
Life changingThis product along with the other olaplex products are simply life changing! My once frizzy bleached blonde hair has turned to silky frizz free hair! Amazing
A little goes along wayI have fine, curly, colour damaged, naturally fizz and dry hair. I use this shampoo 3 times a week and have really noticed the difference in hair quality. My curls are more defined. NOTE a little goes along way for this product and I do think the colour of my hair has gone a little bit on the yellow side.
In saying this I am still really happy with how silky and shiny it has made my hair, I am getting so many compliments! Highly recommend
Well worth the moneyThis combined with the olaplex conditioner leaves my hair feeling so soft and tangle free! Bit pricey but well worth it.
Great productI had a bit of a learning curve with this product - less is more! I have been using the Oribe Gold Lust range and love that, but since I love the number 3 treatment I wanted to give the newly released shampoo and conditioners a try. A tiny bit seriously goes a long way with this product and it lathers up so well that I must remind myself to use less of it! I started using this right after I newly dyed my hair and so far it has been keeping the colour nice and fresh. I do feel it helps with maintaining the health of my hair and look forward to seeing continued results.
Great when used with conditionerI really love the Olaplex 4 & 5 shampoo and conditioner. The shampoo has a great lather leaving my hair feeling clean. I have thick wavy long hair, and I only wash once
a week, so even if I use a small amount I am still going through the bottles super quickly. But that is my only complaint!
Not bad and pretty hydratingPros:
- Doesn't strip hair of natural moisture
- Good but not overpowering scent
- Some shampoos leave my hair tangled because it is so damaged but no issues with this one
- Nothing spectacular... good solid shampoo
I used in conjunction with the at home treatment no.3 and it works great.
Holy Grail!This shampoo is everything. I feel the best way to use it is to lather a small amount in my hands first before applying to the hair as it lathers the most this way. For a deeper shampoo I will shampoo then wet my hair quickly then do another shampoo and this helps to relax my scalp even more, especially due to wearing my hair up all the time
Possible reaction?You only need a tiny amount, it foams really well and I noticed my hair was less knotty after using it. However I used this once a week for about a month and started getting dry sore patches on my scalp, could only link it to this as I hadn’t used anything else new. Maybe used too often? Will continue with the O&M brand instead.
Loved this from first washI really felt this made my hair feel stronger from the first use (I did use No. 5 with it too) I am naturally very dark but colour my hair to a very ash blonde so I need to take care with the health of my hair - Olaplex is a god send!
Soft and Stronger AlreadyI started using this shampoo 2 weeks ago and I can definitely feel the difference already! My hair is constantly soft instead of a straw-like feeling. I have also noticed that when I brush my hair, i see less breakages! Highly recommend especially if you have been dying your hair for years. Smell is great which is always a plus!
Great in betweenPerfect in between using number 3, keeps har soft and repaired. Also smells great. Would strongly recommend as the products lasts forever, only a tiny amount is required.
Not sureI had quite a high expectation for this product. It doesn't really do much for me. Yes it has a nice scent and foams up nicely, but it always leaves my hair a knotted mess which without untangling products brushing is near impossible.
A great system for damaged hairI use the treatment, this and the conditioner, my hairdresser also uses olaplex. This system has been wonderful for my hair after being bleached, and has kept my hair soft and healthy. It’s expensive but I don’t need very much.
DisappointingThree washes uses steps 3, 4 & 5 has left my hair flatter and thinner then ever. When I leave it to dry it’s like straw and after blow drying it’s frizzier than ever. I have fine hair that has a natural curl but using this system has just left it so flat. It does look shiny but for the cost of the product I’d expect a lot lot more . Very disappointed as was excited to try it.
Love love love!!!Best shampoo I have used. Great for my fine hair, smells amazing and only need to use a tiny bit each time - lathers great!
Perfect to use with no 3!I highly recommend this product! I have coloured blonde hair, which can get dry and brittle, but using this together with no 3 & 5 has strengthened my hair, and leaves it feeling healthy between salon visits. I have been using no. 3 for a long time, and the new shampoo and conditioner has really helped my hair to stay shiny and healthy - and grow!
Never looking backThis is the best shampoo i've ever used, i'm thinking about buying in bulk in case OLAPLEX stop producing it. You don't need very much, it lathers pretty well (esp on second wash), smells great and my hair feels instantly stronger and nourished.
Great for fine thin hairSo far so good. I’ve tried the olaplex 3 and really not sue on whether it is making much of a difference or not to the quality of my hair, but this shampoo is amazing, doesn’t weigh my hair down, and probably the best in terms of a little goes a long way. Would definitely buy again
Great for damaged hairGreat for fine, bleached hair. Helps keep hair soft when I add a blonde toner between shampoo and conditioning. Definitely think No3. makes a bigger difference though
Amazing!Amazing product! Works great on my blonde hair, no frizz and my scalp feels completely different after using this compared to others.
Best Shampoo Ever!I wish I’d found this sooner. It lathers so well and I only need a tiny amount to wash my long thick hair. Not the hugest fan of the smell, but it does leave your hair smelling clean and fresh so can’t complain. Works wonders on my highlighted hair.
great!!WOW. im so happy i stopped using drug store shampoo/cond and started using these. my hair is so healthy its unbelievable. i no longer have to blow dry my hair for the frizz (luckily my hair is already dead straight) because i have no frizz at all.. i dont even need trims as often because the ends of my hair are so much healthier. my hair grows to a certain length (belly button) and after that it just dies.... but hopefully after using this for a while my hair will be down to my bum!
AmazingThis here is one of the best shampoos I have used and it really compliments the #3 bonding treatment. You literally need a pea sized amount and it foams up beautifully for a thorough wash but leaves your hair feeling really soft and hydrated. Can not recommend it enough
Value for MoneyI think out of all the Olaplex range this Shampoo is the best value for money. I only have to use the size of a ten cent coin to shampoo my hair and find even then it can be too much. Please note when I wash my hair I only wash my roots due to wearing tape in extensions.
Love ita gorgeous creamy shampoo with a lovely mild scent. I'm using this once a week after using step 3 and my hair has never felt better
amazing for blondesI've been blonde for many years now and this has honestly saved my hair since my hairdresser suggested i start using it. It restores your hair bond and limits breaking!
Creamy & SofteningThis shampoo is creamy, lathers nicely and leaves hair feeling delicately cleansed. It doesn't feel harsh on either your scalp or hair. I love the scent of it - it's hard to describe, but it has a fresh white floral fragrance. Nothing OTT, but it reminds me of salon branded hair care products. Love!
It worksI bought this to go with my number 3, after being so impressed by the results and this didn't disappoint either! I've only used it a few times but my hair is already noticeably softer, and feels less dry/damaged will be repurchasing!
Favourite ShampooThis Shampoo has made my hair feel and look so much nicer. It doesn’t dry it out if I have to wash regularly and a little goes a long way. I use to have to shampoo twice but with this shampoo once is enough. It’s also been good for my sensitive scalp. I’ve been using it for several weeks now and will stick with it. I use my normal conditioner and sometimes the no. 3 treatment and it’s a great shampoo.
Great combination productI really liked the olaplex treatment so were super excited to see this come in! Not a great product by itself but amazing when used with the conditioner and treatment. Makes your hair super silky and tangle free.
So goodYou really only need a tiny bit of this- it froths us really nicely so you feel like you're really cleaning all of your hair. Love this!
Amazing!Wow! This shampoo is absolutely amazing. Use it with the Olaplex conditioner and you will have the softest, smoothest hair EVER! I've only just bought this after reading all the great reviews, i've used it just once so far, and it has done wonders to my hair. Love love LOVE
Amazing ShampooAfter using this shampoo twice I could already see and feel a difference with my hair. I have also been using it with the conditioner as well as No. 3 the treatment and wow really noticed it! MY hair is extremely fine and often gets tangled so easily and this has helped with keeping my hair soft and tangle free! I've only been using all 3 products for 3 weeks but I can tell my hair is in a much healthier condition!
LOVEI have only used twice so far after using number 3 and oh my. My hair is so so soft and shiny. I adore these products already.
love this shampooI expected to love this shampoo and it did not disappoint. a little goes the longest way and it doesn't dry out my hair. will repurchase!
Best shampooIt has a slight citrus scent which is nice, it is not overbearing which is a bonus. I have noticed that you only need a tiny bit even if you have alot of hair. I have long, thin but alot of hair and does wonders because it doesnt weight it down or feel like its stripping away all of natural oils away (I have oily hair and dry ends). I do wash my hair every 3 days so it doesnt feel like I'm using it as much especially when you only need about a 20c piece. So you are definitely getting what you pay for because it does lather nicely so you know you dont need to pour out more than its recommended.
AMAZING - damaged hair is soft and managedableSo after bleaching up from black and my hair being so damaged and dry I was very excited to start using this.
You don't need much product at all - it's very thick and sticky! The fragrance is amazing but most importantly the results - I can't run a comb through my hair usually.
After using the shampoo and conditioner my hair is soft, smooth, manageable and i feel like it is breaking less.
This was recommended to me by a friend and I can't thank them enough!
If you're on the fence, you won't regret it once you've tried it!
Amazing shampoo that prevents breakageThis shampoo is amazing ! Please don't be put off by the price as you use the tiniest amount of shampoo compared to normal shampoo. I use about a 5 cent price and have fine just below shoulder length hair , it was shoulder length prior to using this range and constantly snapped off . Now it actually grows long ! It is amazing to use with the olaplex conditioner and the olaplex no 3 treatment. I used this after trying the no 3 treatment. I have fine damaged hair and cannot recommend this range enough . It prevents hair loss and restructures the hair shaft . It truly is amazing at repairing you hair . If your hair is extremely damaged and dull I recommend alternating with the oribe shampoo and conditioner for brilliance and shine or use oribe leave in conditioner for brilliance and shine after using this to get extra softness and high shine . My hair has improved so much that I no longer need extensions using this range ... it's that good !
WowI have been a religious user of Olaplex for two years now and was so excited when they came out with the Shampoo + Conditioner! I am so happy that it has lived up to the hype. Firstly, I LOVEEEEEE the smell (it kind of has a sweet sherbet kind of smell... super delish!!) Secondly, the wow factor with this Shampoo is that it has gotten rid of 90% of my frizziness. Especially due to the fact that I blow-dry my hair not long after. I find my ends not to be as dry and can really see how much healthier and stronger my dry, thick hair is becoming. IN LOVE!
P.S I would recommend only using a small amount of leave in product after you have washed your hair + pre blowdrying as the shampoo & conditioner along with the olaplex take home mask is more than enough.
What a lovely productNot only does my hair love this product but I've also noticed it's really kind on my scalp too. The active ingredients really live up to their hype. My hair texture, shine and softness and turned up a notch or two. I don't know what they put in this stuff but it really doesn't compare to any other brand I've used. Wow.
Beautiful ShampooI’ve been using this (with the conditioner) for a few months now. I’ve noticed that my hair isn’t as easily damaged or as frizzy. The smell is also gorgeous.
Amazing!Echoing all the other reviews... this shampoo is amazing! So so excited that Olaplex made shampoo and conditioner and that it lives up to the hype. My hair felt instantly softer and more manageable and I absolutely love it
Not a KnockoutI've only used this daily for a week, but so far I like it. I have long, highlighted, fine, curly hair. It's prone to dryness, breakage, and flyaways, as each strand is so fine. I'm an avid user of Olaplex 1+2, which has helped mitigate a lot of the damage I've incurred through heat-styling and color services.
I expected this shampoo to be miraculous but to me its not as good as Kerastase Therapiste.
I’m sure if Number FourI have dreadlocks and was suffering a little tension alopecia (it’s never little on a woman) due to the way I’ve been managing them. The hair becomes brittle and fine after awhile. I have Olaplex No3 and discovered it’s part of a system so purchased No.4.
This 250ml bottle is surprising, the shampoo is luxurious in its consistency, like thick creamy chocolate. I have a lot of hair about 50-60cm in length. I only needed around a 20cent piece squirt of shampoo for my entire head and scalp to feel amazing and clean. I imagine all people with a weave or dreads could benefit from the system.
After shampooing I followed up with No3 overnight, then rinsing shampooing and conditioning.
I’m not sure what the active ingredients are but there is a noticeable difference - the scalp feels relieved and relaxed but most of all the hair shaft appears to have fattened up and become stronger, instead of sticky out and uncontrollable and looking fragile.
You have to try it to believe it, it will blow you away!
Great ShampooUsed after an over night treatment of Olaplex no 3. great product only downside is the cost/size. And if you have thick hair like me, you will go through this bottle quite quickly.
OMG!!! The BEST Shampoo from the brand that saved my hair!WOW!.........I cant even......
I was excited when I heard Olaplex were creating No.4 and No.5.
I received my Olaplex No.4 Shampoo and NO.5 Conditioner a week ago and I am in love!!
At first I was a little put off by the price, however, you only need a small amount - I use a 20c piece size amount for my hair which is just below my shoulders.
After 2 washes I can feel the difference!!
A MUST HAVE!!
Top notchExcellent shampoo! Lathers up really well with a small amount, smells great and leaves hair healthy and shining. Would definitely be buying again when back in stock.
Game Changer!! I highly recommend!I'm in love with the new Olaplex shampoo and conditioner! It's amazing product.
My hair is so shiny and soft. It feels and looks so healthy. I can never run out of this stuff!!
