    Comments about Kenra Professional Clarifying Shampoo:

    My hairstylist brother recommended it in 2011. It's the only clarifying shampoo I've purchased since. A larger bottle can last you a year and Ulta coupons apply! It doesn't have a strong scent.

      Comments about Kenra Professional Clarifying Shampoo:

      My hair was gross; hard to brush and felt like dog hair. I can't exaggerate that statement. So, I googled "best shampoo to clarify hair" and I found this product. It had 4.6/5 stars. I ran to Ulta and bought it. Glad I did because this stuff is magical. It says that it is easy on dyed hair, but I did notice the lather was tinted pink from the red in my hair. It really didn't dull the color that much. But that's not the point, my hair feels SO much better!

              Comments about Kenra Professional Clarifying Shampoo:

              I had used another shampoo that completely took my curls away for about 2 months I struggled trying to find a solution. I finally took the 7 hour drive to see my hair dresser and she recommended this product because she could tell I had some type of build up on my hair. I finally bought the product, used it and instantly after conditioning my hair I could feel the difference and my curls were back! This product is a curl saver in my opinion!!!!!

                    I rotate this shampoo in every third wash or so. Does wonders for my hair which is constantly damaged by the terrible hard water where I am; it seems like it really gets rid of all the buildup and I would credit this product with experiencing far less breakage than before. I have bright color-treated hair and it doesn't seem to wash the color out any more than most products I use. I have to use a good conditioner with this otherwise the hair might feel stripped, but after it's dry and styled it's nice and bouncy! Can't live without it now!

                        I have been using this product for several years and would not change. A little dab gives a big lather and a wonderful clean.

                          I really need a clarifying shampoo for my long hair that I wash every 3 days. I came across this one with great reviews on Google search.

                            I would suggest Daily Provision for a conditioner. It is a leave-in conditioner, very lightweight, adds shine, moisture and provides thermal protection.
