Love These Products

My first time trying and ordering from MyKirei. I ordered the nourishing shampoo and conditioner. It washes clean and leaves my hair soft and smooth. Will be ordering again.

Great customer service

My box didn’t ship to the correct address and they sent another one to me the next day.

Love it!

The scent is so fresh. Peony is my favorite scent and flower. My daughter loves it too. Her hair is soft and silky to touch and so is mine.


Nice but my head is itchy maybe I did not rinse enough smell is nice

No Itchy Scalp!

I have thin wavy hair that is extremely frizzy. I've always used Pantene but it's been giving me an itchy scalp and I'm not sure why so it was time to try out something new. This shampoo feels lightweight on the scalp (it doesn't foam too much) while gently cleanses my hair from buildup. The scent is a light floral scent, a very clean smell and not overpowering at all so you won't get nauseous despite the smell lingering after drying. It rinses out well without leaving any waxy residue and best of all it doesn't irritate, clog or cause an itchy scalp for me. On days where I use a lot of styling products like hairspray or gels, I find that this shampoo doesn't clean my hair enough from products so I end up having to wash twice. After rinsing my hair is left clean but not dry, something that I appreciate as someone with frizzy hair. I also bought the conditioner to go with the shampoo and it's been amazing for me. I do wish that the shampoo came in a larger volume like with Pantene where you get a liter of product because I wash my hair every night and use three pumps to get a nice cleanse but the concept of having refills isn't bad either and I'm planning on purchasing the refills from now on for a slightly cheaper price.
