Amino Acids are fundamental to the human body and construct proteins. When chemically united with fatty alcohol or fatty acid, they have cleansing properties and maintain their mild amphoteric character. Amino Acids are known to moisturize by enhancing the skin's water retention.

Rated 3 out of 5 by I discovered Kiehls when I took a trip to Chicago and the hotel I stayed at had Kiehl's products for their guests. After using the shampoo my hair felt and smelled great, it was my shampoo of choice for a long time but I switched over to the Olive Oil Nourishing shampoo. When I recently switched back I found that it left my scalp feeling very dry. It should be noted however that my hair is quite dry and frizzy and I did move to a drier climate from a place with a humid climate. 12/08/14
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best shampoo! I first bought this shampoo because I loved the subtle coconut smell, but soon discovered it was the most amazing shampoo ever. You don't need very much, and it leaves your hair squeaky clean. I have short hair, so the 1L bottle lasts me several months. I have only been using only this shampoo for the past 2 years and I can't imagine changing to anything else. 25/05/14
Rated 5 out of 5 by One use and you'll get immediate compliments on your hair! I was hesitant on buying this shampoo because of its main ingredient: coconut. I've had the awful experience of purchasing a coconut-based shampoo only to be suffocated by the overpowering coconut scent... But I'm very happy to say that the the scent of Kiehl's Amino Acid Shampoo is simply divine. And the results are fantastic. The first time I used this product, I immediately received compliments on how smooth, shiny and fantastic my hair looked the next day at work. Highly recommend it. 16/03/14
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best shampoo ever I have used a lot of high end shampoos from various salons for years and nothing compares to the Amino Acid Shampoo. My hair is normal and for years I have had seasonal dandruff. Since I started using the Amino Acid Shampoo, I have not had any flakes at all. It is amazing! Plus it smells great and makes my hair so soft. This shampoo will be in my bathroom forever. 01/07/12

Rated 5 out of 5 by Fav shampoo EVER The shampoo just isn't like any other product I have ever used before. It doesn't later like most; it doesn't foam Or bubble up. I didn't think I liked that at first but it leaves my hair so healthy, shiny, and absolutely amazing. I have dyed process hair, after using it, you would never have known. Plus, it smells amazing!!!! How could you not love it?!?!? 30/06/12
