So Nice!

This shampoo smells so good, a nice fruity floral without being too strong. It also is a good balance of moisturizing but light, which is great for my dry and thin hair. My hair and scalp especially feel so clean after using this!

Holy Grail Product!

I definitely recommend this shampoo and it honestly will be the product I use forever until I can no longer get my hands on it. For specific reasons, please read the incredibly long review below.

I was having issues where the shampoos I had been using were causing my forehead to break out (I have super sensitive skin) and my hair just kept getting greasy by 5 pm (I do shampoo and condition every day but I have never had issues with greasiness before). I tried several different products and brands and nothing was really working.

I saw this particular product on Tik Tok in one of their videos explaining top Japanese hair care products and was a bit interested in it. I was initially on the fence about trying it due to the price and not being familiar with Kiyoko Beauty.

After a couple months of not finding any solutions, I decided to try this shampoo out because at that point it's not like anything could get worse. Well, it was definitely the best decision I ever made!

I don't read/research ingredients as much as I probably should given I have super sensitive skin, but the ingredients in this shampoo haven't caused any breakouts or reactions. I no longer have greasy hair at the end of the day either.

The shampoo is light-weight and has a refreshing light scent. It definitely makes your hair feel clean and doesn't have a lot of build up like I've experienced with other shampoos before.

The price may seem high, but it's worth it due to effectively it cleans your hair/scalp and how long it lasts. I have waist-length hair that I wash every single day (I do focus mostly on my scalp but I also use other products in my hair, so every so often I will shampoo all of my hair to get everything clean). I received it at the beginning of September and have over a quarter of the bottle left.

I will also say that I enjoyed the nice email from Gillian thanking me for my order (it may have been an automatic thing, but I still enjoyed it nonetheless). I also find their website easy to use and the explanations of the product categories is just 10/10.

Great for Restoring Scalp and Hair

I only write reviews after using a whole bottle of product and I can say I really enjoyed this shampoo. It's able to clean my very VERY oily scalp while not stripping it of moisture. It's actually pretty soothing to the scalp. I will say, I do have to use this in tandem with a dandruff shampoo as there's nothing in this one that is specifically for dandruff. It's a fantastic basic shampoo otherwise. I did use this with it's corresponding conditioner as well.
