Cons

    Best Uses

    • I used it for scalp acne & it worked immediately

    Comments about Kenra Professional Clarifying Shampoo:

    I used the shampoo only for three days in a row. I misted my hair with a coconut oil oil control and my scalp improved quickly. It will dry your hair out if over used. I was in bad shape. I will use it weekly for maintenance.

                  Comments about Kenra Professional Clarifying Shampoo:

                  I moved into an apartment with hard water and it did a number on my hair. My once curl-defined, soft, shiny hair became very dull, tangled, and matted. I used various shampoos/washes (Aztec clay, black soap, vinegar rinse) and nothing seemed to work. Stumbled across Kenra's Clarifying Shampoo, read the reviews, and decided to give it a go. I'm sooo happy that I did. Just after one wash, my hair was back to life. It thoroughly cleansed my hair and scalp without leaving it stripped. No more hard deposits/minerals/gunk on my hair and scalp. I rarely use clarifying shampoos (and shampoos in general) as I always find them too stripping/drying, but this is an exception. I will definitely be repurchasing

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