Ingredients: Water, Sodium Myreth Sulfate, Sodium C14-16 Olefin Sulfonate, Cocamidopropyl Betaine, Cocamide MEA, Sodium Pyrrolidone Carboxylic Acid, Lactic Acid, Sodium Lactate, Polyquaternium 10, Glycol Distearate, Triticum vulgare (Wheat Germ) Oil, Beta vulgaris (Beet) Sugar Extract, Olive Oil PEG 7 Esters, Hydrolyzed Wheat Protein, Panthenol, Polyquaternium-7 Citric Acid, Phenoxyethanol, Caprylyl Glycol, Sorbic Acid, Urea, Yeast Extract, Fragrance

My Assessment: This is the first cleanser I’ve tried by Silk Dreams and I was most drawn to it for its claim to set up my hair for optimal conditional results. On wash days I always have oil on my scalp and either oil or conditioner on the length of my hair, and even with my hair heavily coated, this shampoo still successfully cleanses my hair and lathers up well. It does a good job of loosening tangles, making it easy to work my fingers through my hair to massage my scalp which I appreciate when it comes to making sure my scalp is cleansed while not tangling my new growth. After rinsing out the shampoo, it doesn’t really feel like I’ve just shampooed my hair – in a good way. My hair feels as though I just applied a cleansing conditioner to it.

A few weeks ago I realized that I had an applicator nozzle that fit perfectly on the bottle. Because of its consistency (think of nice hand soap consistency), it was  easy to dispense from an applicator nozzle, making it even easier to apply the shampoo directly to my scalp.

Overall, it’s a nice moisturizing shampoo that softens, detangles, cleans hair and does live up to its claim that it sets up for optimal conditioning results. It’s a keeper for me.

  1. I want to try soooooo many products from that company but they're not accepting orders right now 🙁 but definitely on my wish list. I use Elasta QP, Neutrogena and Aphogee. What's your take on Aphogee shampoos?

      Hi Tiffany, I haven't tried ApHogee shampoos, I'm sorry :/

  2. Hi Jen, I adore your blog. Thank you for putting in the time and effort for us fans! My hair is a fan of you too as I've purchased and tried many of the products you review!

    I wanted to ask, does this shampoo have actual protein? Or is it claiming to help your hair maintain protein? I was a bit confused as I'm trying to cut back on the protein!
    Thank you,
    MAB

      Hi there, thank YOU! This shampoo is claiming to help you achieve optimal results from conditioners, including protein conditioners. It lists Hydrolyzed Wheat Protein in ingredients but Hydrolyzed Wheat Protein is a moisturizing and conditioning protein derived from whole wheat that helps hair attract and retain moisture.

      Hi there, I finished the bottle and just didn't buy a new one.

    2. Thanks for answering my question. I love love love X infinity your blog, but please stop buying things you don't help my problem. I am a product junky trying to recover.

  4. Hi Jen do you dilute this shampoo as well?

    1. Author

      Hi there, no I don't dilute this shampoo. It's liquid-y enough that it flows out the nozzle just fine without having to dilute it.

  5. I may have to try that shampoo at some point but my favorite moisturizing shampoo at the moment is the Elasta QP Olive and Mango butter. I've never used anything so moisturizing. It does have sulfates but they don't bother my hair.
