Nutra-Lift Goat Milk Shampoo- reader reviewed

When I received my full size sample of Nutra-Lift Goat Milk Shampoo ($19 in the shop), I immediately looked at the ingredient list.  As expected, this product is rather natural, without all the unnecessary preservatives and artificial ingredients.  Missing conspicuously is Sodium Lauryl Sulfate, a main ingredient in shampoos and body washes which is responsible for all the silky foam.  In recent years there have been rumors surrounding Sodium Lauryl Sulfate about how it imposes additional risk to cancer on consumers.  As far as I know, Sodium Lauryl Sulfate has not been proven clinically to be associated with cancer (If there is more to this, please let me know).  In any case, I am fairly sure SLS is not adding much moisturizing or conditioning effect to skin or to hair.  So I certainly didn’t as if I was feel missing out.

Replacing its slot (which usually is second or third on the list) is goat milk, the namesake ingredient.  It is responsible for adding the silk nutrients and the shampoo’s milky texture.  The shampoo has a faint soapy scent (which reminds me of those fragrance-free soaps my mom used to wash our clothes with).  I had previously used Nutra-Lift’s soap-free face wash before and found both products similar.  Though missing the foaming agent, Nutra-Lift Goat Milk Shampoo foams up mildly but nicely.  Instruction suggests that I should leave the shampoo on for up to 30 seconds to allow the nutrients to penetrate into my hair strands.   More often than not, I would forget this step but I honestly could not feel the difference superficially.  For most part of the test, I would still apply conditioner after shampooing and generally I would blow dry my hair.

After using the shampoo for a couple weeks, I could hardly notice the difference in the texture of my hair.   To be fair though, I believe that’s partly my own making and partly genetics.  I am of Asian descent and have rather coarse, thick hair.  I also had a digital perm a few months back which damaged some of my hair tips.  I suppose the condition of my hair may be beyond what goat milk and silk nutrients could heal.  Another observation is that often times I felt I’d need to shampoo my hair twice in order to thoroughly cleanse my hair strands, especially after a workout.  So as you can imagine the 8 oz bottle didn’t last long.

I did conduct one last test – skipping hair conditioning after shampooing my hair (twice nonetheless). To my pleasant surprise, my hair was smooth enough to touch for a thorough blow dry (those of you with coarse hair would understand how difficult it is to run your fingers through your wet hair without proper conditioning).  The shampoo couldn’t replace a hair conditioner, but it did well compare to most “2-in-1” conditioning shampoos.

All in all, I would recommend this shampoo to those with fine hair and who prefer more natural products.  The smell is very pleasant, and you can literally see the milk in the shampoo. For those of us with coarse, thick hair though, we might need some serious heavy-duty conditioning shampoos to do the job.

    Thank you for this thorough review, Grace. I, too, have very coarse Asian hair that I have to coax into submission with a curling iron. I also suffer from extremely dry scalp 9 months out of the year and haven't met a dandruff formula that didn't contribute to my witches' broom of a head. I'm thinking the lactic acid in Nutralift's goat's milk plus the aloe helped soothe my itchy scalp some, but it would be nice to find something to tame coarse, dry hair as well. Have you tried anything recently that works for you?

    I have used the shampoo for a while and I love it. I found it to actually wash my hair very well, even when I have products build up. And the shampoo left my hair incredibly soft, like baby hair. But I have caucasian hair, so I guess that would explain why I got better result.
