I was running out of my favorite shampoo (Kinky Curly Come Clean) and needed to re-up so I decided to switch it up when I headed in to Ricky’s. I walked in with no agenda and ended up buying Dr. Miracle’s 2 in 1 Tingling Shampoo & Conditioner. I just used it last night so I wanted to share a quick review with you all in case you wanted to check it out.
Packaging: The packaging on this product is as no frills as you’re gonna get. Dr. Miracle’s products come in a simple brown box (seemingly recycled material perhaps?). The whole line is pretty unassuming and I actually found it tucked away on the bottom shelf at Ricky’s. The bottle itself is nothing to write about and its pretty consistent with the outside packaging.
Consistency: This product is marketed as a shampoo/conditioner and when it comes to consistency it definitely falls in between those consistencies. It’s a thick, viscous product with an amber type color.
Smell: The smell isn’t for the faint of heart. Menthol is the third ingredient listed and the product certainly reeks of it. I personally enjoyed it, but I know that for some the smell might be too overwhelming.
Price: I think the product generally retails for over $7 but I got it on sell for $6.29 (for 6 ounces). Not bad. Even without the discount the product is cheaper than my go to shampoo so I thought it couldn’t hurt.
Overall Impression: I only used this product once but so far it turned out to be a decent buy. I have a seriously dry scalp and enjoyed the tingly feeling while I shampooed with this. I do feel it conditioned my hair but there was no way I could detangle my hair with just this product in so if you have thick, kinky hair like mine you’ll have to follow-up with a good conditioner with a lot of slip. That being said, during application it felt like my hair a was being conditioned and it seemed to soften up my hair a bit. Only time will tell if this will eventually be worth a repurchase. Since I only wash with shampoo once a week, I’m sure this shampoo will be sticking around for a while.
