Prell is typically recommended by stylists to strip out a botched home dye job in fewer washes than most standard shampoo...it's a fairly harsh detergent.

You beat me to it. I was also going to say I was told by a hairdresser to use Prell if I wanted to lighten a dye job..Strong stuff !

Gee Your Hair Smeels Terrific is crap....as well as Prell. We were taught in beauty school that if we wrapped a perm and put Prell on the rods instead of perm solution, we would get same results. Never did it, but that is what they taught us!

Sorry to hear about this shampoo...had a neighbor in Dallas who used this shampoo in the 70's...she loved it and so did her husband. Never used it myself...I was hooked on Clairol Herbal Essence...back in the 70's it smelled really good.

I have to admit it does smell really good and lasts all day. But it ended up drying my hair out so severe it broke off!!!!!! I had to go back to using Aveda.

Took a year to get my hair back into shape.
Hmmm.... I used the product when I was a kid and pre-teens back in the 70's, and I have also purchased it from a reputable seller on Ebay. I have fouind it to do the opposite, it makes my hair very soft. Then again, I only use it once in awhile. I wonder if you received an imposter shampoo ? Sorry to hear this happened to you.

i guess it is because if the shampoo is made in the Philippines, then that means that the formula is best for asian hairs..... lolz.....
