Dr Alkaitis Organic Shampoo
Different but good
This shampoo is not your usual shampoo but a great cleanser and lovely organic scent, seems to be helping my oily scalp. Good treatment shampoo

Great but not for coloured hair
Lovely organic shampoo and it feels nice to wash with live ingredients "good enough to eat" as the claim about Dr Alkatis products. My hair is really soft afterwards and I dropped less hair. The shampoo itself is quite runny but lathers well compared to some like Yarok, and a bottle surprisingly lasts quite long (more than 2 months with 2 people using). Smell is easy to get used to (like a herbal 5 star aniseed). It doesn't come with a conditioner but it's not too drying so you can easily use conditioner on the days off. Only thing is it's not great for coloured hair as it makes my blonde foils fade. I think most organic shampoos aren't. It's a shame because otherwise I think it's a really great (albeit pricey) product.

Not right for me
In an effort to reduce my products I thought I'd buy this, mainly because I read it's ok using it without conditioning afterwards. It has an odd fragrance - almost a natural medicinal smell which is not bad because it does smell quite 'clean'. It leaves your hair pretty soft and shiny but I notice it makes your hair more boofy! Not necessarily frizzy, just puffed out and denser almost. I don't really like this because I have curly hair and if anything I do not want to have that sort of effect... the same effect on my partner's black, Asian hair which is usually not boofy at all. I noticed I do get an itchy scalp (unfortunately it's happened with a few shampoos) so maybe this cleans the scalp so well that my natural oils are gone, I don't know. Bit of dandruff present, which is probably just worse because my scalp is itchy. But, all in all I'd say if you've got a not sensitive scalp or hair that's easy to look after, then I don't see why it wouldn't suit. Or might be nice to gift to husbands etc.
