Simply U Shampoo & Conditioner

I was recently asked by Collective Bias to shop for the new Simply U Shampoo and Conditioner. With teenagers in our home, we seem to run out of shampoo all the time, and if they run out of their shampoo, then they start using mine.

My hair is very thin and fine, so I like buying shampoo and conditioner that has volumizing in it. The Simply U Shampoo and Conditioner is Sulfate & Paraben Free and also contains vitamins and antioxidants.

According to Wikipedia Sulfate is…”A foaming agent is a surfactant, which when present in small amounts, facilitates the formation of a foam, or enhances its colloidal stability by inhibiting the coalescence of bubbles.[1]”

and Paraben…”are a class of chemicals widely used as preservatives in the cosmetic and pharmaceutical industries. Parabens are effective preservatives in many types of formulas. These compounds, and their salts, are used primarily for their bactericidal and fungicidal properties. They can be found in shampoos, commercial moisturizers, shaving gels, topical/parenteral pharmaceuticals, spray tanning solution and toothpaste. They are also used as food additives.”

So what does all that mean…well I’m not a scientist, but I do know how I like my hair to look and feel. After trying the shampoo, I did see some improvement in volume and I liked how silky it felt too.

UPDATE: This is a review of this product. I do NOT sell this product. Please look online to purchase.

    how can they advertise as sulfate free when the second ingredient is disodium lauryl sulfosuccinate? which is catorgerized as a sulfate???

  6. tyner says:

    you really need to read up on sulfates. the good and the bad. and understand that not everything is what you see. sulfosuccinate is different then sulfate.

    I have tried many sulfate free that have these sub ingredients that end in the word sulfonate not sulfate. they are not clear of chemicals but they are shown to be safer then sulfate.

    so please look it up and do some reading before you turn others off for wrong info.

    Has anyone who tried this had problems with their hair not seeming clean. I ave issues with horrible dry scalp so I can only wash my hair every other day. Since using this shampoo, less than 24 hrs after washing my hair it feels greasy & looks dirty. Anyone else have this problem?

    I recently started using Simply U Smoothing & Moisturizing for my wild, brittle hair and it left my hair so touchably smooth, it doesn’t feel crinkly or dry or frail anymore, and it also helps that the product is ridiculously affordable :] The first shampoo/conditioner I’ve been able to use on my hair that doesn’t leave it a frizzy wild mess!

  14. Theresa says:

    My boyfriend gave this “Simply U” shampoo and conditioner. I have never heard of it so I thought I will give it a try. When I first started to shampoo my hair i freaked out a little bit because the texture was nothing I have ever experienced, but the end result was AWESOME! I have finally found a shampoo and conditioner that fits my hair type and leaves it fresh and clean and not heavey. I am Itlian and Puerto Rican so my hair is funny sometimes Thanks Simply U for coming out with a great product! Anyone that has never tried go out know and try this product you will fall in love!

  15. Jennifer Chandler says:

    I love Simply U Shampoo and Conditioner!!! The only problem is I can’t find a store in my area that sells it! Wal Mart did sell it but they don’t any longer. I live in Middle Tennessee! Please let me know where I can buy my favorite shampoo! Thanks

  16. BETTY ABRAM says:

    Is the Simply U products gluten free?

  17. hello kitty says:

    Does anyone know who makes the product? and so they have a website ?

  18. hello kitty says:

    I too am African American I have read many reviews and am looking forward to trying this product…. I live in orlando we have tons of Walmarts on every corner. I will check and let everyone know :)

  19. mary says:

  20. hello kitty says:

    I found it !!!!! At my local walmart in the shampoo aisle but only the superwalmarts !! Hope this helps :)

  21. Amber says:

  22. Mandee says:

    I loooooove this shampoo and conditioner! Smells amazing, keeps my hair clean longer than 24 hrs and makes it super shiny. I hope they never stop carrying it!!

  23. MelisSa says:

    any luck? :(

  24. Dorothy says:

    I wish they had a 2 & 1 shampoo/cond. I have tried the shampoo and cond. and like it alot,the conditioner doesnt make my hair feel oily or weighed down,,its silky.:)

  25. Heather says:

    I wish I knew where to find this. I also have fine hair, but it’s also curly & with curly hair, staying away from Sulfates is very important!

  26. Rmyers says:

    Nobody has mentioned the Simply U GEL. My dad (who happens to be 75) picked it up somewhere…I’m guessing Walmart…and he and I both LOVE it!! I use it on my 2 year old who has super curly hair and it works awesome! My dad couldn’t remember where he got it, which is how I ended up here. But he frequently shops at Walmart so that would be my guess.

  27. Debbie says:

    I brought this product for the first time, I love this stuff. Wallmart in Yorktown heightshas it. I have curly hair and my hair just loves it. I leave it in and my curls look amazing when they dry. Do you know anyone else who carries it besides Wallmart?

  28. Jackie says:

    I would like to know where else you can buy this shampoo & conditioner, I had seen it & bought some.. Love the smell… Been to the Wal Mart here every day.. Never can find it.. We have several.. Went to the counties around & still can’t find it.. Can u please tell me..
    Jackie

  29. Jill says:

    I was told Walmart quit selling this product and am also looking where else to buy it. Has anyone found out yet? I also emailed Walmart and never received a reply.

  30. Ashley says:

    I was wondering if any one in Michigan has found a store that sells it

  31. Amanda says:

    Hello, I was wondering if anyone knows where I can by the Simply u in norther ca. I live in mounaint view and the walmat by me doesn’t sell it. Also, does anyone know if Simply u can be baught on the internet. I can’t seem to find it. Not even at welmart.com

  32. Albalake says:

    Your scalp will need a couple of weeks to stop producing what you see as excess oil. This is normal. You are no longer stripping all of the natural oils from your scalp when you use detergent free shampoo. The long term use of detergent shampoo creates the need for your scalp to compensate for the stripping of all of the natural oils. Use of a shampoo that does not strip all of the natural oils from your scalp creates a condition that results in hair that gets oily faster than you are used to. Your scalp will need time to adjust to the absence of detergent and not kick into over production of sebum to re moisturize. Also, the lack of detergent on your scalp should ease the dryness. Your dry scalp should eventually improve. Hang in there Miranda for a few weeks if you quit the first try. You will be rewarded with better hair and scalp by going sulfate and paraben free. I know my hair has improved drastically.

  33. Jam says:

    did you use it as a leave in or co~washing conditioner?

  34. Ashlee says:

    This shampoo and conditioner was horrible for me, every time I used it I was incredibly itchy, I felt like there was residue in my hair always. I would not use this product.

  35. Meredith says:

    I have switched shampoos and conditioners every month or so…for the last 20 years. This product has put an end to the madness! I just hate that I can’t buy it anywhere but Walmart :(

  36. darlene says:

    I have searched all over Massachusetts for this product and cannot find it anywhere.

  37. Sheila says:

    Jean – I don’t know where you live in Illinois, but I found these products at the Wal-Mart in Niles on Golf Rd. Near Golf Mill.

  38. Sheila says:

    I found the product at Wal-Mart in Illinois while there taking care of family. I have since come back to CA and can’t find it here at any of the several Wal-Mart’s I frequent.

    Please help!

  39. Gina says:

    Hi well I have colored hair and it’s damaged I recently purchased simply u and I’m just looking for more info about it. I usually buy the expensive brands from the solan and that has worked but its getting ridiculous on how much money I spend on small bottles of shampoo and conditioner. So will this work on my hair…. Remember it’s color treated damaged oh and dandruff and it gets oily after a day or so… Please help

  40. Pajamakitty says:

    Simply U is just plain wonderful! My hair has been amazing! I have been using the one for color treated hair for about 3 mos. Now and people actually ASK me why my hair is so shiny! My daughter uses it too, and her long hair is GORGEOUS! The problem is finding it! That’s what brought me here…I’ve been browsing the web for almost 2 hours trying to figure out where else I can get it! I live in Phoenix and happened across it at one of the two Walmarts I shop @. The other (which is a Supercenter as well) doesn’t carry it. The one that has it is out all the time! They have the regular one, but not the one for color treated hair. Why can’t we locate the company??? Weird! If you can track it down, its totally worth it! The shampoo does not foam a lot, but that is good! Keep in mind that the stuff that makes it do that is not good for you! If anyone finds it online….let the rest of us know!!!

  41. tmh1969 says:

    I love this product. I tried the Hair One and it was awful. The Simply U volumizing shampoo and conditioner is so great for my fine limp hair. I have to wash my hair every day or it is oily and this product is truly fantastic. No more oily hair. I just wish we could buy it somewhere other than walmart.

  42. busnrach says:

    Here is the website for Simply U: http://www.simplyubeauty.com/products.html
    If you hit the faq’s link, you will find a toll free number to find stores that sell it(only Wal Mart)! I just bought the cond. and, after reading the reviews, I can’t wait to try it!!
