Dr. Squatch Shampoo & Conditioner Review

Grooming Product Specifically For Men

Dr. Squatch is a company that specifically makes grooming products for men both in their product formulation as well as fragrances. You know fragrances that any wood-splitting lumberjack would feel comfortable wearing around other wood-splitting lumberjacks. They are very natural smelling and pleasing to most men and not do not smell like a clubbing scent. Just clean, natural, and smelling like a man, simple. These are the types of scents I personally like and search out for. I will be reviewing both their shampoo & conditioner in my post, Dr. Squatch Shampoo & Conditioner Review.

Black Shampoo?…Yes!

Yes, the Pine Tar shampoo and conditioner are black. This might be a shock to some but don’t let it be. This stuff smells great and is an all-natural shampoo and conditioner that leaves your hair clean and smelling great. It is my favorite scent they have in any of their product lines and makes it a must-buy!

The Pine Tar is their biggest selling scent that they sell by far! But don’t skip out on the others they are great too.

A quick word about their scent, I love them all. There is not a bad scent in them all. They all smell natural and more importantly smell great. You can’t go wrong with any of them.

How Well Do They Work? Do They Smell Good?

I purchased with my own money the Dr. Squatch Pine Tar Shampoo, Dr. Squatch Pine Tar Conditioner, and the Cool Citrus Conditioner to review on this website. In full disclosure I am an affiliate of Dr. Squatch and links are provided that I make a small commission through clicked purchases. This by no means influences my reviews. I bring only honest and detailed reviews to share and inform my readers. This is a small website and if you find the information helpful please help support this site.

Everyone’s hair is different and I can’t speak for everybody but I can relate my experience with this product.

Normally my hair is dry and slightly curly. Using both the shampoo and conditioner leaves my hair feeling definitely softer and less dry. Commercial shampoos can typically leave my hair very dry. Thus I only shampoo my hair every other day so as to not strip all of the natural oils out of my hair and thereby increase the dryness of my hair. Upon using Dr. Squatch’s hair products I have been shampooing my hair every day to get a feel and to form an opinion on their hair care products. My experience is that my hair is much softer even with daily shampooing.

Waking up in the morning and using a product you love plus one that smells great and helps you wake you up is a real bonus too! It is really refreshing and invigorating and a fresh alternative to more chemically produced smells that are in essence, fake.

The Drawbacks…But Not Really

Typically standard commercial shampoos have great lathering features. You can really get a good lather with them but with Dr. Squatch there is only a small amount of lathering. At first, you might believe this is a bad thing, but rest assured it is not. In order for shampoos to get that great lather, they have to use harsh and horrible chemicals in order to achieve this desired effect. Chemicals that are not good for the body. Dr. Squatch doesn’t add these typically used chemicals to their products. They avoid adding them.

I don’t use any more or any less shampoo to clean my hair with Dr. Squatch’s products. It just doesn’t lather or foam as much as other shampoos but it still cleans. I typically use just a dime-sized amount and spread it around my hand for a few seconds then spread it around my head.

I often wear pomades and clay products in my hair due to its unruly nature. This allows me to have some control over it. Using these kinds of products every day can lead to build-up on the hair and scalp. Dr. Squatch Shampoo cleans these residues off so I can start fresh and clean.

Another potential drawbacks of the shampoo and conditioner are that the consistency is more liquid than standard shampoos and conditioners.
