    Comments about Paul Mitchell Clarifying Shampoo Two:

    I have fine oily hair that typically needs daily washing and I also dye it frequently so it is a little dry. Since it is dry, I try to only wash every other day but the oil in my hair after 2 days of no washing is unbearable. I also have oily skin so I guess that is why my scalp is also oily?? Anyway, this shampoo cleans so well I went 3 days without washing an the only part of my hair that was greasy were my bangs! The rest still looked great. I follow the wash with Hawk Monoi coconut oil deep conditioner since this shampoo can be drying and these 2 products are the best combination I have ever used for my somewhat dry, colored, oily, fine and straight hair. My hair does have this kind of weird slick, water resistant feel afterwards but it doesn't affect how it feels when dried, super soft and shiny after I wash them deep conditioner. Would def. recommend for oily hair and will for sure continue to use this combo.

    I use this clarifying shampoo once a week in combination with one of the other PM conditioners I have. Definitely wish they would release a conditioner to pair with the shampoo in the same scent because I love it!

      Comments about Paul Mitchell Clarifying Shampoo Two:

      I love this shampoo. I have been looking for a good, deep cleaning shampoo for a long time and had the hardest time picking one. I finally settled on Paul Mitchell and I could not be happier I did! For the first time in my life I went without washing my hair for 3 days and on day 3 my hair looked almost the same as it did on day 1. This shampoo is amazing and it is my new Sunday staple. I would not use it more than once a week since it may dry your hair out, but if you are looking for a shampoo that will help keep your hair clean and gunk free, look no further!

        Comments about Paul Mitchell Clarifying Shampoo Two:

        The bottle isn't kidding when it says "gets hair squeaky clean"! My hair literally squeaked as I ran my hands through it after rinsing-- but in a good way! I noticed after I chopped most of my hair off about a year ago, that it was becoming visibly greasy VERY quickly, and I could no longer go multiple days without washes. What occurred to me recently though was that with my short hair, I was also using WAY more styling products. Thus the hunt began for a great clarifying shampoo to get all that build-up OFF my head. Even after one use, my hair feels like its old self again, and I can once again return to my semi-irregular bathing habits.

        • Removes buildup from every day product use.

        Comments about Paul Mitchell Clarifying Shampoo Two:

        Works great! Removes buildup from everyday use of regular hair products. Do NOT use everyday because it will strip your hair of it's natural oils, making your hair super dry and raggedy. Only once a week works best.

            I wanted to get away from washing my hair every other day and wondered whether the claim of less washing was probable. I just got tired of washing and styling my hair and my job kept me so busy that I would literally fall asleep without dinner. Well, I went from washing every other day to twice a week and finally to once a week with no greasiness on the final 7th day, and it still looks good. The process to make this change in number of hair washings took about 6 months. Don't know that I want to push it any further than 7 days but I believe I could if I wanted.

                My husband doesn't like the smell of shampoos with flowery scents. This one is lemon, and he's used it for years.

                  This is a really great product. I use to wash my hair every day but with this product, it strips my hair of oils and I can go about a day and a half without washing. It is EXTREMELY drying though, so people with dry hair already do not need to use this. Even with this product, my hair is so oily that it may help a ton but I still need to use a little bit of dry shampoo. Be sure to keep this in mind when purchasing, and be sure to get a conditioner or your hair will tangle extremely bad in the shower.

                    I had a lot of build up so I used this twice in one use (rinsed and repeated) then followed with a hair mask. Now that my hair is dry there is still pieces of what appears to be product build up still in my hair! Am I using this wrong? How long would I have to use this product until my scalp is completely cleared? Help!

                      A:

                      Shampoo Two is safe for daily use. If you are looking for an intense surface cleanse you can lather and leave on for up to 5 minutes, rinse and repeat if needed. Overtime with regular use hair will become less oily.
