Dang if this thing doesn't smell...sumptous...the polar opposite of the austerely scented Nasturtium and Lemon shampoo...which smells neither of nasturtium nor of lemon, particularly. Nasturtiums grow wild here, if you can picture legions of East Coast gardeners with their jaws agape--and they don't smell much (the nasturtiums that is).
But Macadamia and Orange shampoo smells exactly that--macadamia nuts and orange, and not in the horrifying fake fruity-nutty way it sounds. It's incredible. If I were to use a shampoo purely for its scent--you're looking at it.
All of that said, I found it a tad touch too moisturizing the first time I used it. Yet the same may be said of the Hauschka facial cleansers; it's their philosophy that "like treats like." Macadamia and... is marketed toward people with oily hair, so it stands to reason it would be a touch too moisturizing, counter-intuitive as it seems.
Hm. It's a bit too early to judge. I feel Nasturtium and... is better for irritated scalp, as claimed. If only Nasturtium and... smelled like Macadamia and... But then I'm not above using two shampoos at a pop, one for scalp, the other for the rest of the hair (it's faster and easier than it sounds), because typically one is better for scalp and the other one smells better. grumbles...
