      Comments about Kenra Professional Clarifying Shampoo:

      I bought this because I had a lot of product build up that my normal shampoo just wasn't taking care of and I'm so glad I did! It worked perfect! Took all of the product right out! It was a bit drying to my hair, but other than that, I'm highly pleased!

          Comments about Kenra Professional Clarifying Shampoo:

          Helps with oily hair, but it gave my hair crazy flyaway. I feel that it is harsh on the scalp as well. Nothing nutritive about it, but gets the job done with the annoying oil for the day. My hair gets oily by the next morning though so this product didn't really solve my oily hair concern in the long run.

            I bought this shampoo for my son and daughter. They get a yukky buildup from hormones as they are 12 and 15. Kenra clarifying shampoo really cleans their hair and leaves it shiny and soft.

              Works well to remove buildup. I believe you get what you pay for and usually splurge on shampoo. Catwalk is my go to. However, I found a tresemme brand that works just as well for WAY CHEAPER. This Kenra product does it's job but since I found a cheaper product that is just as good I'll not purchase again.

                      Had a classmate dye my hair in cos school, and it ended a train wreck. My instructor recommended using this to help bring out color in order to make lightening back to my natural color easier. Would this work?

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