Amino Acids

Amino Acids are fundamental to the human body and construct proteins. When chemically united with fatty alcohol or fatty acid, they have cleansing properties and maintain their mild amphoteric character. Amino Acids are known to moisturize by enhancing the skin's water retention.

Coconut Oil 

Coconut oil is an off-white, semi-solid, highly saturated fat expressed from the kernels of the coconut. It is stable when exposed to air. It lathers quickly and is a good skin cleanser commonly used in many skin care formulations. Lathers readily and softens skin.

Hydrolyzed Wheat Protein (Phyto Peptides) 

Hydrolyzed Wheat Protein, also known as by the collective name Phyto Peptides, is an effective substitute for hydrolyzed animal protein derived by acid, enzyme, or other method of hydrolysis. It offers conditioning, moisturizing and film forming properties and is widely in skin care products to help skin retain its moisture and improve its overall appearance.

Rated 5 out of 5 by All Hair Types I Have never been so pleased with a product. As you can see my title is all hair types because I have finally found something that actually does work on African American hair. I had a problem with my hair shedding not anymore, this product leaves your hair nice and soft and very manageable you WILL NOT be disappointed. From now on this will be the only shampoo I will ever use that's how satisfied I am 5/18/15
Rated 4 out of 5 by Neutrally good Does anyone else remember that this shampoo used to be darker in color and it smelled sweet and faintly of soda? Gone is the color and soda scent, leaving it a little too neutral. Nothing bad to say about it but I miss the old version. 5/16/15
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love this! It is winter time and anything with humidity in it is freezing in these low temps. I chose products to keep humidity in - like this shampoo. It left my hair, which was drier than normal, in perfect condition! I received the sample product and didn't need to apply olive oil conditioner, which left my hair oily. After waiting for days, and re-washing, my hair is in per condition. As if we were not in winter!!!!! This is simply amazing! My advise: try using the product alone, without conditioner. If your hair is not normal, than re-wash with a light conditioner. Thank you Kiehl's for having another wonderful product. 1/1/15
Rated 5 out of 5 by Favorite Shampoo I just love this shampoo. It cleans without stripping and my hair is so soft afterwards. It leaves my hair feeling healthy and looking shiny. 12/29/14
Rated 5 out of 5 by Works Like a Dream I had first gotten introduced to this line from a sample from maybe four or five years ago, tried it, loved it, and promptly forgotten it. But, having moved from CA to WI my showering habits quickly needed a re-vamp. The water here is hard, and my hair tangles like crazy. I couldn't afford to use to expensive salon brands because I am in grad school so money is tight. That being said, I was going through drugstore brands like water; the 5.89 'extreme treatment' conditioners and shampoo cleansers lasted a week in my hands. So Amino Acid Shampoo comes into my life. Yes, it is a cleanser (judging by the contents and label) so it works if you live in an area with hard water and your hair just feels like gunk. Yes, I do have to wash my hair everyday, but I have oily hair, and always will. Nothing is going to change that. (I am multi-racial, with thin, very long, wavy hair, but I have A LOT OF HAIR that tangles like mad). So it cleans well in extreme hard water, leaves my hair detangled, rinses easily (a blessing for those with long hair) smells great, is a bit pricey for someone who usually buys store brands, but works just as well as the more expensive top of the line salon brands. The bottom line is, if you are looking for a shampoo that works on a) tangles b) rinses easily c) oily hair d) thick or fine hair e) hard water build-up this stuff is for you. Sidenote: Both my husband and I use it, and he doesn't find the scent to be too 'girly'. He has thick, curly hair, and a flakey scalp and finds the shampoo to work just as well for him. That being said this shampoo isn't for everyone, we all have different hair-types, but if you have similar problems, this stuff is a lifesaver, even if you have to pay a bit more. 10/26/14
Rated 5 out of 5 by The Best! I have been using this shampoo for twelve years; before it was popular Kiehl's left out the harsh detergents in this shampoo. The smell is dreamy and it leaves your hair incredibly soft! 5/25/14
Rated 5 out of 5 by only drawback is too expensive perfect shampoo for any kinds of hair. just too pricy!!!!! 5/25/14
Rated 5 out of 5 by No frills thrills The Amino Acid Shampoo is the best shampoo I have every used, and I've tried too many. I used a sample at a hotel in New York City, and I haven't looked back since. This shampoo has a wonderful smell, excellent texture and leaves my hair (fine, with grey coming in) with body, few tangles and no residue. My hair has body and is easy to style. This product is "no frills" because the results speak for themselves. No hype necessary. I use the conditioner, too! 5/25/14
