      • 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.

              We tried many products to deal with my teenage daughter's hair- she had to wash her hair everyday due to sports activities and her hair was always oily. It took a few weeks of using the product we saw results and now only use this for her hair.

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

              This is a clarifying shampoo - i.e., not meant to be used every day. I use a lot (a LOT) of dry shampoo, among other products, and after awhile, my scalp gets ... well, not great. This shampoo gets rid of everything going on, but it is drying, so I follow it up with my regular shampoo and then deep conditioner.

              This works as well as any other clarifying shampoo I've ever used, but it doesn't lather (if you like lather) and it does smell kind of medicine-y and chemical-y. Not a terrible scent, but not enjoyable either. I mean, shampoo doesn't need to smell good, but it's nice when it does!

                  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.
