Nutra-Lift Simply Superb Shampoo with Goat Milk- reader reviewed and recommended

November 28, 2010 Reviewed by Kim 8 Comments

I received a full size bottle of Nutra-lift’s Goat Milk shampoo ($19) in the mail a few weeks ago. I love reaping the rewards of being a TIA devotee! Let me just start off by saying I love this shampoo! I may even like it more than the ever–popular, long-reigning favorite Nutra-lift Ultra Nutrient Shampoo. For my dry curly hair, this shampoo is becoming my new favorite.

We all know the stories of the radiant Cleopatra and her milk and honey baths. What you may not know is that according to legend her milk baths were made of goat’s milk. Apparently goat milk has the same PH as skin, and the nourishing milk proteins do a remarkable job of soothing and moisturizing. This must be why it’s so fantastic on my dry hair.

And this shampoo doesn’t simply give a nod to Cleopatra’s time-honored beauty secret; it puts non-pasteurized organic goat milk as the second ingredient, just after water. The milk makes the shampoo super rich and creamy, and almost more like a shampoo/conditioner in one. In fact, I often don’t even use conditioner when I’m using it. It made my curls soft and bouncy after just the first use. I swear!

There are no detergents in Simply Superb, so I’ve been using it daily.  Although, I do think switching up shampoos is helpful for my hair. So I tend to rotate between this, the ultraNutrient, and Nuture My Body’s Shampoo. In addition to the goat’s milk, you’ll also find silk amino acids in there, which are great for helping hair feel silky and shiny. And the all-natural and organic blend of herbs - including rosemary, pine cone, and horsetail - is great for keeping your scalp healthy. I think the verdict on this one is pretty obvious - if you’ve got dry hair, this shampoo is a must!


Deionized Water (agua), certified organic Non-Pasteurized Goat Milk, Lauramide MIPA, Glycol Stearate, Cocamide MEA, Vegetable Glycerin, Phenyl Trimethicone, Aloe Barbadensis gel, Tetrasodium EDTA, Silk Amino Acids, a natural and organic blend of: Rosemary (Rosmarinus officinalis) Extract, Lemon (Citrus medica limonum) Extract, Pine (Pinus sylvestris) Cone extract, Hops (Humulus lupulus) Extract, Horsetail (Equisetum arvense) Extract; Tocopheryl Acetate, Citric Acid, Hydroxypropyl Guar Hydroxy-Propyltrimonium Chloride, Panthenol, Sodium Chloride, Quaternium-15, Chamomile extract, Green Tea, Pomegranate

    I stopped using this for a while because Nutra-Lift reformulated and it was too watery to use. I am happy to say that they have gone back to the old version. I have been trying it and the consistency is not watery, but a light cream that rinses out well.

    I am going to have to try this! I already make goat milk soap from our milk goats, but I have been curious about the shampoo!

    I just bought this Nutra-Lift goat's milk shampoo and tried it for the first time this morning. I really like it - it left my hair smooth and wavy. Like Kim I didn't even use conditioner. And despite the rainy windy weather today in New York, no frizz.

    "No-poo" is a routine for curly hair care, although I believe it would be great for aging hair as well. In a nutshell, it is eliminating all sulfates and non-water-soluble silicones from your hair care. The theory is that silicones coat and suffocate the hair, and dry it out over time. This is controversial but I am a believer! Silicones also require harsh surfectants to remove, which are drying and extremely difficult to rinse from the hair. It is possible to wash your hair with a non-silicone containing conditioner, or a creamy cleanser made for that purpose. The condition of my hair has improved so much over the past year! Of course giving up all direct heat styling helped too...

    Thanks Barrie for the helpful post. Can you explain a conditioner washing routine in more detail? It sounds like something my hair would love.

    Switching up shampoos probably works for you because the others (the UltraNutrient Shampoo is the one I'm familiar with) contain surfectants that will remove the phenyl trimethicone in the goat's milk shampoo. If you were to use only the goat's milk shampoo you would probably have some buildup. You would probably love a conditioner washing (no shampoo) routine. I have curly-wavy hair that tends to dryness/frizzies, and I love this routine. Middle aged hair needs TLC!

    I love that shampoo too.
    The same brand also carries a soap with goat's milk which is quite fantastic.
