Why is it a good deal?

This best-selling shampoo is currently on sale for just $9 and has, historically been as high as $11 on Amazon and up to $25.20 at other retailers. In fact, this is the same price it’s been during the recent Black Friday shopping rush where it sold out in one day before eventually being restocked about a week later.

Why do I need this?

The Rosemary Mint Strengthening Shampoo is packed with strengthening biotin, intensely moisturizes dry hair and scalps. Effective on all hair types and textures, the gentle shampoo nourishes and cleanses the hair and scalp without stripping. It simultaneously strengthens weak and brittle hair thanks to its nutrient-packed formula that shoppers and hair professionals love.

Its strength-forward formula helps treat and further prevent split ends and welcomes healthy, shiny hair. It also produces a luxurious lather that shoppers love, and its subtle rosemary scent is another feature that reviewers rave about, with several saying it’s surprisingly calming and soothing.

In addition to its soothing scent, the rosemary component comes in one of its main ingredients: rosemary oil. And, according to Dr. Michelle Henry, a New York City board-certified dermatologist, it can vastly help in stimulating hair growth.

“Rosemary oil is equivalent to 2.5% minoxidil, which is pretty impressive,” Dr. Henry told Today. “It’s something that we can use during pregnancy or fot patients who just don’t want to use minoxidil or are intolerant to it.”

Though experts still can’t specifically pinpoint exactly how it works, the general belief is that it aids in improving circulation in the area and, in turn, that increased blow flow promotes cellular turnover and growth.

The Mielle Organics Rosemary Mint Strengthening Shampoo is paraben-, paraffin-, sulfate-, DEA- and mineral oil-free. It’s also not tested on animals and is 100% organic, according to the brand.

What reviewers say

One shopper who gave this shampoo to their balding friend shared that they were shocked that it helped his hair grow after years of unsuccessful treatments.

I gave this to my balding friend and his hair immediately started to come back,” the five-star reviewer wrote. “It’s a miracle, actually. He had a lot of hair loss and it’s grown back like no other.”

Another shopper showed in a series of photos that she saw results after just one week of use.

“The first picture of the hair in the drain is from two days ago. The second one is from today,” the shopper wrote, showing the massive decrease in hair fallout. “The difference in hair falling out during the shower is noticeable. Even my husband was shocked.”

The same shopper added that hair occasionally still falls out when she brushes, but “it’s also less.” She also noted that the shampoo also lathers nicely and, best of all, a little goes a long way.

Keep in mind, though, that, with all beauty products, results may vary.
