Review: Not Your Mother's Way to Grow Long & Strong Shampoo & Conditioner

Not Your Mother's Way to Grow Long and Strong Shampoo is made with essential vitamins, herbs and bio-active extracts. It's a salon formula that will have your hair stronger, healthier and in turn longer. It's also a sulfate free shampoo. Claims you'll get longer hair faster, strengthens hair, anti breakage formula. Conditioner claims it will strengthen, moisturize and give your hair a silky texture. Intense moisturizing for all hair types. Says it can be used for chemically treated hair as well.

I think it's really cute that they added on the bottler that Grow Long and Strong was for already existing hair, that it did not grow new hair.

I think this shampoo and conditioner smells amazing, makes me think of strawberries! I feel like this shampoo and conditioner has definitely improved the quality of my hair. I think my hair looks and feels so much more healthier. I think I have way less breakage as well. Both the shampoo and conditioner say to massage into your scalp for 2-3 minutes. I did this with both the first time I used them, but I felt like it took too much time, so for the rest of the time that I've been using these products, I just lathered up the shampoo real good, rinsed, then applied the conditioner on my hair and leave it in while I finish with my shower routine, then I'll rinse it out well. The shampoo and conditioner are both a thicker consistency than any other I've used before. The conditioner though is the thickest conditioner that I've ever seen.

I've never used a sulfate free shampoo before because I've heard they do  not lather like regular shampoos, and I like my shampoo to be very sudsy, otherwise I feel like it's not getting my hair clean. I was very please that this shampoo had a very good sudsy lather to it even though it is sulfate free.

Final Thoughts: I really like this shampoo and conditioner and I may make it my new go to shampoo and conditioner. At Walmart this retails for $4.97 each for a 8oz bottle. The cost is a little higher at places like CVS, which kind of puts me off, but I feel like the few extra dollars I would be spending on this product would be worth it in the long run for the health of my hair.

  1. I want to try this but I'm not sure if this is right for my hair, it's extremely damaged from being bleached.

    1. I'm not an expert by any means, but I think it would be okay, it is a gentle cleaning shampoo.

  2. I haven't heard of this brand before, I will have to look into it! I am your newest follower via GFC!

    1. Thanks for coming along and linking up! Xx

  3. Interesting! I haven't seen this on the shelf at my local Walmart but I suppose I could order it online. I love the sulfate-free shampoos--my hair feels so much healthier from using them, even if they are a bit more expensive.

    1. You can also find Not Your Mother's products at CVS, but they are a tad more expensive. I agree, my hair feels much more healthier :)
