    Comments about Paul Mitchell Clarifying Shampoo Two:

    Whenever I go swimming or get into the ocean (as I live in Florida) I use this after. It leaves my hair so soft like I never got in. Great at removing build up and my hair has become so much less oily. I loveee the way my hair feels. It will however strip your hair so a good conditioner is need after!!

                • Q:

                  What's the main difference between the shampoo two and the shampoo three? I don't color my hair but it does get greasy. Are you saying the three removes chlorine in addition to the buildup that two removes? What's the best product if I only wash my hair 1-2 times per week?

                    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. Shampoo Three Deep cleansers remove chlorine, iron and minerals and helps prevent swimmers' "chlorine green."

                    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.
