Most Helpful Positive Review The Only Clarifying Shampoo I Use
I have prematurely gray, curly, thick, coarse hair, and the minerals in our hard water react with the heat of my styling tools to yellow the white/silver. I use this shampoo once or twice a week, depending on how often I style my hair with heat, and it takes the brassiness out and brightens the white/silver in my hair. Though it's a clarifying shampoo, it's not harsh and doesn't leave my hair feeling dry. And it smells like Froot Loops, lol. I've tried other clarifying shampoos, and none is as effective as this.
Most Helpful Critical Review Changed the formula
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!

I was so excited to try this on my super greasy hair that I have to wash everyday but did not help at all even tried lathering and rinsing twice and it still greasy after 24 hours I'm super upset and disappointed I really thought this would work for me :(
Heather from Iowa
I use this shampoo whenever I need to reset my scalp! A little goes a LONG way and my hair always comes out clean and free from all buildup and oil!
knudkg from jacksonville,FL
love this shampoo. my hair and scalp needed a deep clarifying shampoo and this worked wonderfully
emily from Indiana
I was in search of a good clarifying shampoo for a while. my hair has always been extremely greasy and had little bits of buildup all throughout my hair. after using this, my hair felt so much better and cleaner! I really recommend this! just make sure to use conditioner so it does not dry it out. I will probably be using once a week or once every two weeks.
this cleaned by hair very nicely and made my hair soft.
Becca from Coon Rapids, MN
I use this product once a month to do a deep clean of my scalp and hair. I use another shampoo the other times every other day. I have thick straight hair. My typical wash schedule is every 2-3 days with a regular shampoo so I don't strip my oils too much.
Finally a shampoo that works for oily hair
Melanie from USA
I have tried so many different shampoos to try to combat oily scalp/hair. This shampoo is not too harsh on your scalp compared to some other clarifying shampoos. I wash my hair every other day and after a few uses I noticed much less oil on day 2 hair than normal. It lathers well and smells nice. I'm very impressed!
Perfect for at-home silk press on my natural hair
Nikki from Houston, TX
In an effort to save a few dollars, I felt the need to figure out how to silk press my own hair. After lots of Google searches and online videos, I found out that super clean hair and scalp is a must. *enters clarifying shampoo*
I remember a hairdresser suggesting this particular shampoo to me years ago, and I love Paul Mitchell products, so this was the first thing I thought about.
My hair felt squeaky clean after using this shampoo - like every single bit of product was gone without a trace.
Do note that you MUST follow up with a moisturizing shampoo/conditioner.
Obviously, this was the missing step in my previous attempts at pressing my hair because it came out perfect! I'll definitely have to keep a bottle of this.
Great for "Silver Foxes"!!
Foxy from Syracuse, N.Y.
Use it once or twice a week.....keeps silver hair bright and shiny
If you think you may need this just go out and buy it
Amanda from Washington, DC
I use a lot of dry shampoo and only wash my hair twice a week due to bleaching. I had horrible scalp buildup that I could not get rid off. No matter how hard I scrubbed, the vinegar rinses, the baking soda scrubs it was still there. I looked into washing my hair with dawn to try and get rid of it. One wash with this shampoo and it was all gone. My scalp was finally free of gunk, and I would recommend it to anyone with similar issues.
So good for oily hair
Monique from Visalia
I wash my hair every two days and this even past the second day my hair isn't oily I love it
My Only Shampoo!
Madison from Tennessee
Where has this been my whole life?! I literally try other shampoos now and always have to come back to this one. It leaves my scalp so clean and fresh and free of build-up and dry flakes. I also have vibrant color-treated hair and have yet to have an issue with using this clarifying shampoo - it does say in the details online that it is "color-safe" because it's free of sulfates. It also smells so nice and lemony fresh! I feel this shampoo would be excellent for any hair type. I notice a difference when I don't use this shampoo specifically. Thank you Paul Mitchell!!!
dee from pa
This cleanser does work you just have to use it and then switch out with another shampoo... also it takes a couple times to actually see the results. This was a savior for my hair.. I use this an the paul mitchell tea tree special because I have such oily hair, that's whats been working for me.. and then I use joico moisture recovery to counter the dryness. Perfect combo for me.
Not oil control
TH from San Francisco
After cleaning feels really dry. Through out the first day oil is controlled. However second day the oil came back and scalp smells worse than before.
🌻 from 😇
I have purple hair. I constantly use leave-in products, serums/oils, dry shampoo, which ultimately led to hair buildup. My hair felt so heavy and greasy after showering. The middle part of my hair would not dry whatsoever, making my hair feel dirty and gross. Literally bought it today and noticed a big difference! It feels so much cleaner and weighs lighter. This really does help, but keep in mind that it can strip hair color.
Snandy from California
I workout often and use dry shampoo frequently. On top of that, I have naturally oily hair. From just one use my hair feels cleaner but not dry. It also has a nice, simple scent.
My Hair Feels Amazing
Trish from Pennsylvania
I have pretty thin hair and my roots get incredibly oily very quickly. If I wash my hair at night, which I prefer to do, my hair is typically just oily enough to feel the oil slick on my neck. It makes me feel gross. This shampoo is amazing. I have no oil in my hair from over night and my hair feels great and looks great! Highly recommended if you have oily hair.
I would probably buy this product again
Kk from Alabama
Even though I do love this product for use on my oily roots. My bleach dyed ends say otherwise. I had to get a hydrating moisturizer for my ends to even out the dryness, and the squeaky clean ness.I also don't like how it doesn't foam up so you can't really tell if you're cleaning it super good or not. But I still do like this shampoo, and would recommend it to someone who has oily hair.
Oily scalp people this is your shampoo!
LP from FL
Love this product! My hair is normally super oily on day 2 while using regular shampoo. With this shampoo I've noticed I don't even need dry shampoo till day 3 which is crazy for me! Life changing shampoo
My new favorite!
KaryH from Houston
I decided to give this shampoo a try based on the product description. My hair tends to get oily fast & starts to look ugly & flat. I have used the shampoo for almost a month now & I love it. My hair looks really good natural without any styling & it goes a bit longer without getting oily. Also I feel like it cleans my hair better when I shampoo twice, but I don't use too much product.
Love this shampoo! Would definitely buy again!
Sabrina from Murrells Inlet, SC
This product is great if you have oily hair! I've always had to wash my hair daily. Now, I wash it every other day and it still looks and feels great!
Best shampoo for me

Not for oily hair
Charmy from California
I have oily hair where I have to wash my hair every other day because it gets oily looking after 24 hours. I read a lot of positive reviews how this is great for people with oily hair, but when I used it, my hair still got super oily after 24 hours. The only positive thing is that the shampoo made my hair feel squeaky clean during the shower, but it did not extend the freshness of my hair after the 24 hour point and I still had to wash my hair every other day. At this point, it's a regular shampoo to me and it did not work.
Great to remove buildup and oils
Anatat from Cincinnati
I wear my hair curly for 4-8 weeks and then I'll want to straighten it and I have to remove all of the oils, and products I use for my curls that are way too heavy for straight hair. This was my first time buying this and it worked perfectly.
This is a miracle!
a mei from New York
My hair never feels as clean as it should because the water is extremely hard where I live. This solved the problem and it also brought my hair back to its normal texture, which is smooth and shiny, when it had just been gross and weird-looking for months before. I'm very happy to have finally found a shampoo that does what it is supposed to.
Great for after sun fun
Kimmy from Atlanta
Great for an overall clarify shampoo that isn't harsh or drying out your hair
