Pros

  • Adds Shine
  • Adds Volume
  • Cleans Thoroughly
  • Gentle
  • Great Smell
  • Improves Hair Health
  • Lathers Well

Cons

    Best Uses

    • Permed/color treated/fine hair

    Comments about Matrix Total Results Pro-Solutionist Alternate Action Clarifying Shampoo:

    Alternate Action is the finest clarifying shampoo in the business. Using it prior to perming guarantees a perfect curl that lasts. I use it once a week to remove hairspray and mousse buildup but do not leave it on for a minute because my hair is also colored with Redken Shades EQ, a demi perm color. This has been in my shower for over ten years, and I have recommended it to tons of friends.

          Pros

          • Doesn't Lather Well
          • Dries Hair Out
          • Harsh
          • Smells Bad

          Best Uses

          • Oily Hair

          Comments about Matrix Total Results Pro-Solutionist Alternate Action Clarifying Shampoo:

          I was looking for a clarifying shampoo and I KNOW that it would feel drying since it's literally stripping your hair of everything (oils and products), BUT it left it feeling like nothing has ever left my hair feeling before, and NOT in a good way. It literally felt like wet straw and actually felt brittle. To add to that, the smell was not appealing to me. It smelt like cheap shampoo, not a higher end brand that I consider Matrix to be. I ended up returning it and buying a different shampoo that got great reviews - the Hask Charcoal Clarifying Shampoo. Now THAT shampoo I recommend, as it has a light citrusy scent, doesn't make my hair feel terrible - in fact it feels soft after shampooing (probably because it's sulfate free), and it's cheaper than Matrix.

              A:

              Matrix Total Results Pro-Solutionist Alternate Action Clarifying Shampoo does NOT remove color. It is a non-stripping, clarifying shampoo that offers a deep clean that removes product build up.

              A:

              Total Results Pro Solutionist Alternate Action Clarifying Shampoo has a translucent gel-like consistency. It is not creamy in texture, therefore not producing a creamy lather result.
