Most Helpful Positive Review No more green hair!!
I am a competitive swimmer with red hair. I am in the pool 6 days a week plus in the summer I love going to the pool and having fun. But the chlorine always made my hair get a green-like tint to it!!! It would be like Christmas in June. I tried all the shampoos that are 'designed for swimmers' but they didn't do anything. I tried this and it worked like a miracle. My hair is back to the original shade of red it was and there is no tint! The only con is that it does dry your hair out but as long as you follow up with a good conditioner your hair will be fine.
Most Helpful Critical Review There are better clarifying shampoos
I have thick long hair and this shampoo stayed in my hair for a week after! Each time I wet my hair to get ready to wash it would sud back up! Bubbles and suds everywhere! I would use sparingly and not very often. I literally couldn't figure out why my hair was so dry and tangled and this was the reason! I switched back to Joico K-Pac Shampoo and it went away. Also I had intense itching at the nape of my neck.

Ash from St. Pete, FL
Everytime I use this shampoo it makes my hair super sticky and dry. I would spend a good hour rising it out and it would still be in my hair. I regret trying this shampoo because I cannot seem to get my hair back to the way it used to be. Don't buy this!!!!!!! You will regret it!!!!

Did not do anything. Hair still smells like chlorine and feels no different, disappointed.
Love it. Hair feels amazing!!

One wash so far, BUT
Ashley from New York
So I have very hard, chlorinated water in my apartment and my hair is platinum blonde. I started noticing that my hair was getting this ugly yellow tone to it and purple shampoo was not helping (I use Matrix.) I also recently started using a toning mask (Pravana.) Although those seemed to help, it would be short lived because on the days I'd wash with a moisturizing shampoo, I was noticing the yellow tones again. I went into Ulta and asked the sales associate which shampoo would be good for hard water, and she recommended this or Living Proof. I decided to go with this because it was not as expensive, and you get more product than the Living Proof kit. I have only washed with this once but let me tell you my hair looks so much BRIGHTER, and way less yellow! It also left my hair soft, clean and refreshed. My scalp feels amazing. I will definitely be purchasing this on a regular basis to keep my blonde clean and free from the chlorine that's in my apartment's water!
Has always cleaned my hair well
knightshopper from Fremont, CA
I use this shampoo couple of times a week to really clean it out and it works well.
Great for after the pool
Colvegasleen from Las Vegas, NV
I bought this after being recommended by my hairdresser at ulta. It removes chlorine from hair after swimming.
Great for correcting toner in blonde hair!
Christine from Georgetown TX
My hair was gray/ purple after using toner and this shampoo got it out! Had to use two days in a row but it worked so well! Hair felt so clean afterwards as well.
We love this product, shampoo 3.
M the glamour from South Carolina
We have been using this product for the past several years. It can be used daily and has a great clean smell.
A Must Have!!!
Sandy G from Ocala, FL.
I have hard water so, I needed something that would not only remove daily buildup from other products, but to also remove calcium and all the other nasty stuff. I use this once a week now and my hair and scalp is literally feeling squeaky clean afterwards!! I use a hair mask after I use this shampoo and my hair feels Amazing!!! Highly recommend and don't forget to use a hair mask or a deep conditioner afterwards!!
Good clarifying shampoo but really drying
Meels from Maine
This shampoo did a good job with removing product buildup on my hair. However, after shampooing it makes my hair feel like straw, even after conditioning. I have dry curly hair anyway but this seems to make it worse. I only shampoo once a week and co-wash my non shampoo days.
Best Chlorine Removal Shampoo Ever!
Sierra the Swimmer from Illinois
This is by far the best chlorine removal shampoo I have ever used! I have really thick hair and most shampoos still leave the chlorine smell and turn my highlights green. I love to swim laps at the gym but needed something that would save my hair. This smells so good and lathers so well, it literally makes your hair feel squeaky clean (I used The Detangler Paul Mitchell conditioner afterwards to help detangle). My hair is even better than before I started swimming. Will forever use this.
helped my dull highlights
kim from Panama city Beach
I got blonde highlights about a month ago and have been using a lot of products on my hair to combat the dry/brittleness of processing my hair. I noticed my blonde was starting to look dull and even Grey in some areas. I purchased this to see if it'll help and after one use my hair is back to being as blonde as it was when I first got it highlighted. It also feels softer and healthier than it has been these last few weeks. I can see how people would feel it's drying.. It's important to use a good conditioner with this product. I used Redkins Frizz Dismiss after using this product had good results!
Amazing clarifying shampoo
Pookie from Michigan
This works well at getting the green out of your hair from swimming (which I realize isn't the chlorine, it's actually from the copper in most water). I also have minerals in my water and it removes those as well. It does strip the natural oils as well, but I can always add more moisture back into the hair. I have tried other clarifying shampoos and this one works the best.
Green Hair isn't from Chlorine.
Taylor from Temecula
Just an FYI, green hair from swimming is actually from copper in the water, not chlorine. I would image because this removes metals and minerals, that's why it's effective. Copper turns things green/blue = green hair. Copper is a very effective algicide for swimming pools and also in some plumbing and equipment. Just a PSA.
Great shampoo for getting rid of chlorine on your hair!
Cindy from Chicago, IL
I use the product at least every other day to get the chlorine out of my hair. I alternate with a moisturizing shampoo. My hair is color-treated and has highlights. It does a great job. Make sure to use a good daily conditioner.
TAKES THE GREEN OUT!!

If you have high chlorine in your water - this works !
Great for swimmers

Mom of a swimmer from Sioux Falls, sd
Used this shampoo as it says it will take chlorine out. Spent way too much for this product to help my daughter's hair after a summer of swimming. Was told this would work good. We used a lot and her hair was still crunchy after it dried. Won't buy again.
Cleared the residue on my hair
Lou from Las Vegas
Good product. Shampoo cleated the residue on my hair. It's more shiny. Clean smelling, lightweight
vmg from greenwood indiana
I purchased this hoping it would pull out or tone down a too red lowlight in my hair and to remove left over film from a leave in conditioner and IT WORKED GREAT!!! and what i found surprising was it didnt even dry out my hair since i used it 3x in one shower! my hair was so soft and fluffy! very thankful i found this.
Shampoo of great
Debbie Do from Mississippi
Love love love this product!works amazing to clarify hair
Debbie from Penfield, NY
My daughter is in the pool for 6 to 8 hours a day over the summer and this keeps her hair from drying out and getting brittle.
AMAZING FOR SWIMMERS
Maggie from Gainesville, FL
I swim 5-6 days a week and use this after I get out of the pool. This has a wonderful lather and makes my hair feel squeaky clean l after every swim. I dyed my hair every couple of months for almost seven years and didn't even realize how much build up was in my hair until I used this. My hair has never felt healthier. Make sure to use with a conditioner.
Steffanie from Los Angeles, CA
It's effective but you could finish 1 bottle in 2 weeks if you have long hair.
This is a miracle worker
Kathy B. from Austin, TX
My hairstylist had put a toner on my hair after blonde highlights leaving an overall brassy and gold color in my hair. I could not even see the highlights anymore. What a waste of $140.00. I was so upset. Then I was told to use a clarifying shampoo. I researched the reviews here. I used this shampoo one time and it cut the ugly gold and brassy color down by 90%! I left it on my hair about 10 minutes then washed it out and used K-Pac reconstruction conditioner. Try this shampoo if you have ugly colors in your hair. It works wonders!
