Pros: it effectively washes my hair, pleasant aroma, soft and shiny hair

Giovanni 50:50 Balanced Hydrating-Calming Shampoo. This is actually the second pair of products, which I’ve tried from the brand. The first pair of was from the 2Chic collection.

Gentle enough for every day, superior shine is on the way. Smile. This is happy hour... for your hair.

How to use

Massage rich lather into wet hair and rinse. Follow with 50:50 Balanced Hydrating-Calming Conditioner.

*USDA Certified Organic 100% Vegetarian Ingredients


My hair is thin and rather long. I wash it twice a week. My scalp is sensitive.


The product comes packed with a white semi-matte plastic flip-topped bottle. The design is rather interesting, as it’s flat and the top cap is adorned with a silver leaf.

Here you can see the list of components used.

The design of the product looks cute and an important thing for me that it’s convenient to use, which is such an advantage.


This shampoo is actually a clear gel of yellowish color with a really pleasant fruity scent. It’s also a little bit sour, though, yet still so natural.


I apply it over my wet hair, lather well and then rinse off. I always wash my hair twice. The product lathers richly, even during the first use.

The cleansing properties are mild, though I can feel that my hair is almost squeaky clean after the use. Even before the use of a conditioner, I can already feel how smooth my hair is. Yet still, I follow up with a conditioner.

Using this product, the frequency of my hair wash hasn’t become more or less regular.

The product doesn’t make my scalp irritated or dandruffed.

SPENDING: I’ve been using it for 2.5 months and in the pictures, you can witness yourself how much of the product is left.


My hair is shiny and really smooth. It feels as though this shampoo, paired with the conditioner really moisturizes it. However, I haven’t noticed any volume increase, which wasn’t decreased either, by the way.

I also want to note that after use of this shampoo, my hair is so easy to comb and I can see that it knots less.


OVERALL: I liked this very shampoo and its conditioner way more than the pair from the 2chic collection. This shampoo has become one of my favorites and I’ll surely repurchase!
