The Gnarly Whale Sudsy Shampoo

RATING (out of 5 stars): 3.5 stars

COST: $17 for 8 ounces

THE SKINNY: This first thing I noticed about this shampoo was that it smelled like cake. So much so that I had to run out to the bakery later that day.

But the shampoo also did the trick, although it does take a little getting used to if you like thick shampoos.

The Gnarly Whale product is very thin and runny. (I wondered the first time if I would get a good lather.)

The answer is yes. It lathers nicely and cleans well. My hair looked better than it had in days after using this shampoo.

The downside is the bottle. Because the product is running and because it comes in a little pump bottle it is a little hard to get in your hand without a good bit of it running down the drain.

All of The Gnarly Whale products are 100 percent vegan and cruelty free. The company also uses natural antioxidants as preservatives in most of their products, and printed materials are made from recycled materials and paper. 

KEEP OR TOSS: Keep.

CHECK IT OUT: You can find a ton of The Gnarly Whale's products -- including this one -- on Etsy. And as far as I can tell, they all smell amazing!
