      Comments about Hask Charcoal Clarifying Shampoo:

      I've suffered from having extremely oily scalp/hair my whole life and shopping for a shampoo that was 1) good for me and 2) NOT a moisturizer (lol i got THAT down pat), was a struggle. By coincidence I decided to start using Hask's Charcoal Purifying shampoo, and i'm never going back. my scalp no longer feels gross the day after showering, my hair has a healthy volume and glow to it and I feel good using a product that's good for me.

      Great Product

      By Paige

      from Whitsett, NC

      Comments about Hask Charcoal Clarifying Shampoo:

      I bought the shampoo and conditioner and the first time I used them I could tell a big difference it made in the condition of my hair. My hair felt clean but not stripped, it was soft, no flyaways when I blow dried it. I used it again the next day and the results were even better! I have been buying shampoo\conditioner that were $30 a bottle and this is so much better and way cheaper. I will definitely continue to use it!

      Comments about Hask Charcoal Clarifying Shampoo:

      I am a product tester and reviewer. Sometimes that means trying out products that leave build up on my scalp, which I had mistaken as dandruff. I was using a popular dandruff shampoo that not only didn't really work very well, but was causing my hair to fall out! So today I went to Ulta looking for something new. After trying to find something that I hadn't already struck out with, I selected this one. I feared that the whole charcoal thing might be a gimmick, if I'm honest, but I tried it tonight and it is far from a gimmick.
      First of all, I need to get out of the way that I absolutely do not like the smell. It's not right lol. It isn't gross, but it isn't really pleasant and I'm a huge fan of citrus so that kind of caught me off guard. That is okay, however, because it performs so well.
      I had so much scalp buildup that I would scratch my scalp and get creamy-ish white gunk under my nails. Yes that is disgusting, and I assumed it was dandruff and have spent years now trying to get rid of it. Years, okay? Gross.
      So I lathered up with this shampoo, made sure to really work it into my scalp, and when I pulled my hands away to see what the lather looked like I could actually see bits of that stuff that was previously stuck to my scalp all over my hands. I'm absolutely certain it was NOT the shampoo, shampoo is not semi solid like that. I rinsed, and ran my hands through and it was still coming off my scalp onto my hands. Given the amount of build up, this didn't surprise me and I washed again. This time it rinsed completely clean. I kind of scratched a bit and got nothing, NOTHING, off my scalp. The shampoo got rid of every bit of it.
      This shampoo did a great job. I also used the conditioner with it and my hair feels silky, smooth, and most importantly it feels clean. It's dry now and no amount of scratching at my scalp has turned up anything.
      I will be sticking to this. Realistically I am not going to stop testing new products, so this is perfect.

          I bought this shampoo to get rid of build up, and it got rid of my dandruff! I have tried all kinds of different shampoos (head and shoulders, tea tree, I even tried baking soda-which almost killed my hair) to get rid of my dandruff and by chance picked this one up and noticed my dandruff was gone! It's crazy I really hope they never stop making this!

            I normally don't use drugstore hair care but heard good things about this. I use it once a week as a clarifying shampoo to get all the styling products a d dirt and oil out. Love the results.

                Comments about Hask Charcoal Clarifying Shampoo:

                I do not care for this product on it's own. I have very healthy hair and this didn't do it's appearance any favors. It feels drying even in the shower and just doesn't feel good or lather nicely during the washing process, nor did my hair feel nice or look particularly good after it dried. I tried pairing this with a 'normal' but extra sudsy shampoo, and my scalp and hair did feel really clean without being stripped. But I feel like I've used other shampoos that clarified better (albeit maybe a little more harshly), and other shampoos that generally washed hair better, and this one is just not the 'best' at anything. It did clarify somewhat, and it has a very nice price point. But I think there are better products out there.

                  My curly hair was super frizzy. Styling products that used to work well, stopped working. I had product build up. This clarifier brought my curls back to life! Just use a deep conditioner right after use to condition your curls. I use 2X a month.

                    Works really well to remove build-up and cleans the hair nicely. Does not dry out my hair at all, and leaves it very shiny. Has a pleasant citrus-y scent. It seems like it would be gentle enough to use daily, although I alternate between this and a more hydrating shampoo. Really impressed with this, especially at this price point. This is only the second product I've tried from this brand, but both have impressed me. I look forward to trying more from this brand.
