Great product fro a trusted source

1st Lather works great for washing product buildup out of my natural hair, followed by the hydrating/detangling formula. I usually purchase1st Lather from this website or directly from my stylist. I made the mistake of ordering from a third party Amazon vendor. BIG MISTAKE! It was a watered down milky looking mess. Lesson learned. I will always order from Kera.com or purchase from my stylist in the future.

Best Shampoo!!

Great experience shopping and with customer service chat. I inadvertently left my apartment number off my address, I contacted CS and they added it before shipping. I love your products, and have used for the last eight years. Do you sell the 1st lather sulfate free shampoo in 32oz?

Shampoo dries out my thin hair

Dries my hair out really bad. The second time I tried the shampoo the conditioner did help a little, but I had to re-wash my hair with a different kind shampoo.
