As you can see from the pictures, I have not been using the Adovia Mineral Mud Shampoo very long. I've used it probably a week tops. Mostly because when I first used it my hair felt so tangled in the shower. I hate feeling like I can't brush my fingers through my hair while I'm showering. Literally it felt like a "rat's nest" of tangles. I stopped using the shampoo for a couple of weeks but this past week I decided to give it a try again. I'm really glad I did. I must have had some other issue going on with my hair the first day I tried because this whole past week my hair has been fine.

While I have not had any scalp related problems, my hair is very fine and thin. If I blow dry my hair straight it won't look very full. I found that my hair seemed like it had a lot more body to it after using this shampoo. I paired it up with a conditioner from the same company (review to come soon).

Pros: The shampoo lathers really well and leaves your hair and scalp feeling clean (which I REALLY need after my morning runs!)

Cons: The bottle is a little on the expensive side ranging from $23 on the website and $27 on amazon.

Will I buy this product in the future?
- Due to price. . . probably not, I have use a different brand that I can get shampoo and conditioner 3 times the size for a little over the price of this shampoo.

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
