            Amazing shampoo for my hair. Even with no product in my hair with in 12-14 hours of washing it my hair feels oily. After switching to the shampoo my hair is so much less oily and feels sooo soft. I wish I knew of this product sooner, it's great. I was skeptical of spending more money than the typical drugstore products but this is worth every penny! Go try it for yourself

                    Have been using PM clarifying shampoo for 10+ years - always consistent result: removes all the chemicals & minerals and left hair squeaky clean and fluffy - NOT ANYMORE. They've changed the formula and now it does not remove the minerals/chlorine/residue, not squeaky clean as before and my hair is nit fluffy as before; lies flat and almost feels still oily/looks oily! So disappointed! Looking for a new shampoo now!

                        Bought this for my daughters hair after realizing she wasn't getting all the shampoo out of her hair and after one use it was amazing the difference really got all the oil and built up product out. So I used it and was amazed at how well my hair looked and felt after too.

                            A:

                            The Shampoo One® from Paul Mitchell® gently cleanses the scalp while improving manageability, and even adds a deep shine that enhances hair's appearance. It works with panthenol and wheat-derived conditioners that help to improve the hair’s surface texture and manageability. The gentle formula makes the Shampoo One® a great choice for color-treated hair.
                            Shampoo Two® from Paul Mitchell® helps minimize oil and adds the perfect amount of body to flat, lifeless hair. The color-safe formula cleanses oily hair and the scalp, leaving hair feeling fresh and looking shiny. Deep cleansers wash away build-up without stripping out much-needed moisture while minimizing oil production in the scalp for the perfect balance.

                          I had a lot of build up so I used this twice in one use (rinsed and repeated) then followed with a hair mask. Now that my hair is dry there is still pieces of what appears to be product build up still in my hair! Am I using this wrong? How long would I have to use this product until my scalp is completely cleared? Help!

                            Shampoo Two is safe for daily use. If you are looking for an intense surface cleanse you can lather and leave on for up to 5 minutes, rinse and repeat if needed. Overtime with regular use hair will become less oily.
