My Experience with Not Your Mother’s Way To Grow Long and Strong Shampoo:

Not Your Mother’s Way To Grow Long and Strong Shampoo comes in an inverted tube packing. The tube has a flip top cap which shuts with a click. The tube is white in color with red black hair graphics on the tube. All the details are also printed on the back of the tube. It has a small nozzle on top to dispense the product.

The shampoo is white in color with a pearlescent finish. The consistency is pretty runny. Yes, it is not as thick as shampoos normally are. In fact, when I saw the small hole for dispensing the product, I was quite unsure if it would easily come out of it, but it flowed out. Due to the consistency, I found it a bit difficult to control the amount of product flowing out when my tube was still new as it would start coming out as soon as I inverted the tube, without me squeezing it.

The shampoo, though is sulfate free, lathers very well.  A dime-sized amount is enough for a single wash for my mid-back length hair. I have oily scalp, dry but very fine hair and I wash them every alternate day. Using this shampoo did not change that equation. A single wash is enough for my non-oiled hair, however, after oiling, I do need two washes to take the oil out completely, which is mostly the case with all other shampoos as well. It cleans my scalp and does not leave any residue. It is easy to wash out and rinses out easily.


The fragrance is floral, but it has a hint of some strange scent as well. I do not have any aversion or sensitivity to fragrance-d products, but I do not like this fragrance too much. Now with regular usage, I do not care much though. Also, it is pretty strong when you take the product out from the tube, but does not stay in your hair. In fact, it fades even before I am out of the shower.

The shampoo is not a moisturizing one, so a conditioner is a must after using it. My dry hair needs not just a conditioner but a serum as well after using it. Now, coming to the long and strong claim, the company says that the product is for already existing hair and it does not grow new hair. It does reduce brittleness in the hair and my hair now breaks less from the middle as opposed to earlier. So, the shampoo will help your hair grow by reducing the breakage. 🙂 But the best part I like about it is that it gives amazing volume to my hair, which I love 🙂
