I love it I have thin hair and helps make it more full after drying. Love the smell and it’s all natural.

I love everything about this! EVERYTHING except that I want it (and the conditioner) to come in glass bottles, too.

I can’t get enough of this

I am obsessed with Bathing Culture! I have all of their products and have them in my city apartment and country cabin - both on the east coast. I first

discovered the line at Sea Ranch in Northern California and fell in deep love with it immediately. The scents evoke the Northern California woodlands and meadow grass and they have become an essential part of my well-being rituals. Love, love love!

Greasy :(

I have thick, shoulder-length hair. I’ve been using a shampoo bar for the last 2 months & wanted to switch back to liquid shampoo. I have other products from BC that I love, so I decided to try their shampoo. Unfortunately it does not work for me.

The lather only lasts for a second & my hair somehow ends up both incredibly greasy and stripped/squeaky-feeling in different sections. I tried using a ton of shampoo & sectioning my hair, tried using a small amount, etc. but the result was always very greasy hair no matter how much I rinsed.

I got this from a refillery location, so I’m not sure if it could just be a “bad batch”? It does smell lovely & I’ll continue enjoying my other BC products but this was by far the worst shampoo I’ve ever used.
