not your mother’s shampoo & conditioner review

Hello, hello, & welcome back to another post! It’s time for another review post. I’m embarrased to admit that this post has been planned for months, but I haven’t gotten around to it. Oops. I’ve even had the photos loaded up, waiting to be edited. Again, oops. A few of the photos turned out blurry, apologies for that.

Anyway, all that aside, let’s get into the post.


My hair takes a really long time to grow. I use coconut oil and essential oils and all that amazing stuff, and while that has definitely helped my hair, it still grows very slowly. I thought about taking Biotin supplements, but many people said that their skin broke out from it, and as I have blemish-prone skin, I didn’t want to try that out. I’ve always been a fan of the Not Your Mother’s brand, and when I found out they had a shampoo and conditioner shampoo and conditioner targeted at growing out your hair, I jumped right on it.

I know I say this about almost every product I review, but the s & c are extremely inexpensive! (Maybe I’m just a cheap person, if I keep buying inexpensive products. But hey, I like saving my money.)

The reviews are actually pretty good, a lot of people said that their hair was growing like a weed, so I thought it wouldn’t hurt to try. Plus, the shampoo and conditioner are free of sulfates. (Though they do have quite a few chemicals.)


Well, well, well, my hair actually did grow pretty quickly. I didn’t take any pictures of hair growth, but I would say my hair grew a few inches more than usual in one month. I could honestly just tell, looking in the mirror. My hair seemed longer every time I checked. I’m sure if I bought more, I would see even more hair growth. But I stopped using it, for a few reasons.

My hair turned to straw. It was dry, the ends were unhealthy, and overall it just didn’t look very good. Also, I found myself needing to wash my hair more and more, because my scalp was getting extremely greasy. Once the bottles ran out, I switched to OGX shampoo and conditioner, and I’m happy to say my hair is back to normal.

Everyone’s hair type is different, and I know for a fact that my hair doesn’t react well with too many chemicals, which is probably why it turned so dry. If you end up with a bad haircut and want to grow your hair back long, this will also help! However, it does say on the back of the bottle this product is for already existing hair, and does not grow new hair, so keep that in mind.


Would I purchase this again? Yes, I would. It was cheap, smelled absolutely heavenly (it smelled like strawberries and hot summer days, the scent was amazing), and it worked. It truly worked. However I do think I would need a lot of hair masks to balance out my hair, because it turned extremely dry and unhealthy.

Thank you so much for reading, as always, and I hope you have a great day.

What shampoo and conditioner brand do you like?

  1. I might try this out! Where did you buy it? My hair tends to grow pretty quickly, about 10 inches a year. And it’s already to my hips. But I want to get it get the ends to be a little thicker. I have that greasy hair problem too! Only if I don’t wash my hair for over two days, but still. It can be kind of frustrating.

    1. Whoa, wish my hair grew this quickly! I bought this at Walmart, because it’s cheapest there, but it’s also in Target and on Amazon, and quite a few other places. It is frustrating, glad I’m not alone on this!

  2. I have never heard about this brand before, but I definitely would give this shampoo a try if I needed my hair to grow, even though it probably wouldn’t be so good for my already very dry hair 😆 I love how honest you were with this review!

    1. Thank you, I always try to be honest! Yes, if you have already dry hair I wouldn’t recommend this. If you’re looking to grow your hair, definitely consider this brand!


  3. Love Lush’s and The Body Shops hair products! They tend to be a little more pricey, but I think that it is worth it anyway. By the way, I tagged you to do the Perfectly Imperfect tag, it is all about self love and that kind of stuff. Of course you don’t have to do it if you don’t want to xx

  4. No fun to the dry hair 😔 I actually used this stuff myself (I just ran out) but like you said, it was great! I was happy with how fast my hair grew, but also it thickened my hair tremendously! I’m curious to know though, what other Not Your Mother’s products would you recommend for just maintaining your hair?

    1. Ooh that’s awesome, I’m glad it worked well for you! Hmm, I also really like Not Your Mother’s Dry Shampoo and their Sea Salt Spray is the, those are both must haves. Of course, everyone’s hair is different, so you should try out a lot of different products to find what works best for you!

      1. Okay, thanks! I’ll be sure to check those out as well as the others 😊


  5. I love their Texturizing Spray but have yet to try out their full size Shampoo and Conditioner! I have pretty dry hair but I feel like using this mixed in with another shampoo and then using a hair mask would help!
