If you have read enough of my other reviews, you know that I love cheap or free! That is one of the reason's I love VO5 shampoo and conditioner's. Usually I can get a bottle for under $1.00. There are many different scents to choose from. I don't think I have found a scent I didn't like.
I send away for free samples (there's that word free again!), so I have tried many other more expensive shampoos and conditioners. I have never noticed any difference between them. I think VO5 does as good a job as any of the higher priced ones out there. Maybe if I had long shiny hair to worry about, that would make a difference, but for my short, slightly curly hair VO5 does what it is supposed to do, clean and condition!
If you always thought it must not be a good product because of the cheap price, I would recommend you try it, you might just be surprised!
