Most Helpful Positive Review Like a Religious Conversion In a Bottle
I washed my ultra long, ultra fine, ultra thick hair with this shampoo and was a life-affirming experience. There is a backstory here, so I should digress: Due a plumbing disaster at my apartment that took almost 3 weeks to resolve, I had not washed my hair in 20.5 days and it was DIRTY. (I wear a scrub cap at work and could hide under it, thank God!) I have used clarifying shampoos in the past and they always stripped the hair shaft of moisture, and the hard water in my current location complicates this further. (Let me say I have "normal" hair in that it isn't oily or dry in spite of the length; and it is not chemically treated.) However, weeks of buildup and months of hard water had made my scalp filthy and the rest of my waist-length hair dulled, dried-out, and impossibly tangle-prone. So this shampoo was up against hard odds and it prevailed. The protein complex in it must be where the magic is because after I used it my hair was as clean as it gets yet was also thicker, shinier, and almost tangle-free. The shampoo lathered like a charm; I left it in my hair about 5 minutes... and no repeat was required. I used the Redken Diamond Shine Conditioner afterwards and I was a changed person when, post shower, I combed it out and voila: I had my childhood hair back--it was silky, shiny, and CLEAN! The next day, a total stranger came up to me and complemented me on my hair. I could have cried. If things like this don't make you happy, you have problems.
I have used it 3 times since the first (alternating with the Redken Diamond Shine shampoo which is also splendid) and it seems to make my hair healthier with each wash. I am so grateful I found this product. I have recommended it to my friends and to every stranger who has come up to me on the street and exclaimed "Oh my, you have the most beautiful head of hair!" A+
Most Helpful Critical Review Ulta keeps sending me Clean Maniac instead of this
I love this shampoo, but Ulta keeps sending me Clean Maniac instead of Hair Cleansing Cream. Clean Maniac is vastly inferior and now I have 6 giant bottles of it. Clean Maniac leaves a coating on my hair. Either Ulta or Redken seems to have a SKU mix up in their warehouse that needs attention. The bar code on the 33.8 oz Hair Cleaning Cream is 84486 04252. The SKU on Clean Maniac is 84486 33766. I wish someone would fix this. It is probably why my local Ulta does not have this product in stock either.

Great shampoo to get hairspray build up out
I like it
Daniii from Houston
This shampoo does what it says. It removed the hard water buildup and hair product buildup that was in my hair. After removing the buildup with this shampoo, I got my natural volume back! Another really good clarifying shampoo is Drybar charcoal clarifying shampoo.

Use once a week.
Oily hair solution found!!!!!

After one use it made my oily hair bouncy
Cleanses without stripping completely!
Amanda from Cleveland, OH
I bought this in a whim because I needed a good clarifying shampoo. I've tried many brands and they all seem to completely strip my hair and made it feel dull and dry even with conditioner. This is the first one I have tried where my hair felt very clean, but not bone dry and stripped! I absolutely love it!
bdubs from Atlanta ga
I cannot get over this shampoo. I got the travel size to try it out. My hair has NEVER felt better. I am in awe. this really strips your hair of all the build up but still leaves it feeling silky. I have very long thick hair. not coarse. just thick 10/10.
Must buy! Works Amazing!
Amazing hair product. Works well! from Vernon hills,IL
I've never had greasy hair until I stared coloring it. I also live in a home with well water/hard water. Even since I've lived in this home and coloring my hair, my hair gets oily. I used to wash my hair 1-2 times every week, but now I have to wash it 4 times. I used this products tonight and I immediately notice a difference. My hair feels so much lighter, shinier and less build up. It even was easier to brush out. I highly recommend this product. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
My go-to clarifying shampoo
QueenTink from UT
Excellent weekly clarifying shampoo. Doesn't strip hair but still gets all the gunk out.
svalle from Oregon
I've had virgin hair my entire life and recently dyed it for the first time. In the midst of trying to figure out which shampoo was best for me, I realized that the hair products I was using were leaving a lot of residue. While I still haven't found the perfect shampoo/conditioner for me, I came across this product that claimed to help with residue left behind. I researched quite a bit before buying this brand and all I have to say is I absolutely loved the results! My hair felt so clean and light after using it. It didn't feel oily or dirty like it had been feeling for a while and I was so happy. I definitely recommend this product to anyone dealing with the same issue as me.
Will be a staple in my bathroom
BriSep from Dallas, TX
Washed out all the product out of my hair and left it so soft. Love this, will buy again
Loved this for my natural hair!!!
Mirmir from Michigan
This shampoo is amazing. Glad I caught it on sale. I can honestly say this stuff is one of a kind...I have a lot of expensive natural hair shampoos and they don't even feel like this. It has such a soft lather....I could easily run my fingers through my hair with this in it....I cleansed my hair and scalp really well. I'm so shocked by how good this is...this will forever be in my stash!
This shampoo does the job!
smj from Pennsylvania
This shampoo truly does remove build up and it smells great!
Does as promised!
Outdoor Lover from Houston TX
Wash hair, leave in 5 minutes, rinse, follow with purple conditioner
Buy it! 10 stars!!!!
Klo from Ohio
This is the queen of clarifying shampoo!! This removes heavy buildup and gives the best shine! Styling products will really work as they should on clean, clarified hair and this shampoo is the go to! I have bleached, processed hair and can use this twice a week without stripping my hair of moisture. Use a moisturizing (not strengthening or protein charged) conditioner w a lukewarm rinse for hair bliss . I LOVE THIS SHAMPOO!
If you have crazy product build up, you need this
Jship2016 from Charlotte, NC
This is exactly what I was looking for! My hair dresser recommended this to me because the build up in my hair was out of control. I shampooed with this like normal, then did another shampoo with it and let it sit for a few minutes. Followed up with regular conditioner on my roots and a deep conditioning mask from my ears down. My hair stayed looking shiny and beautiful for FOUR DAYS. Before I used this, I would wash my hair and by the end of the next day my hair looked gross. Thank you build up.
I'll you this. Probably once a month, maybe twice but no more than that.
I will definitely purchase again!
Brooke B. from Wisconsin
I've been looking for something to replace my previous clarifying shampoo that has been discontinued. After reading tons of reviews for various brands, I finally landed on this one. It did not disappoint! It works really well and it smells great!
I have used this product for awhile.
Jacque the great cook! from Trophy Club, TX
This product does a great job of stripping hair spray, dry shampoo etc. from your hair.
Noticed a difference right away!
Trvlgirl10 from Nashua, NH
I didn't realize how much buildup was on my hair until I used this. My hair was feeling very heavy and limp & knew I needed a good clarifying shampoo. After using this 1x, my hair felt so much lighter, cleaner, and softer. I followed with a good conditioning mask. I am truly impressed & will be keeping this in my weekly routine.

The product I use on my curly hair leaves an impossible residue. So frustrating to go through the time and effort to straighten it, only to have a gross feeling stickiness on the ends. Normally I would use Neutrogena clarifying shampoo, but it's SO harsh on my hair. After a bit of research, I settled on this product and I'm so glad I did! The directions say you can leave it in your hair for 5-10 minutes and/or use it a second time. I did both, honestly expecting that it would strip quite a bit of moisture. And yet my hair doesn't feel dried out at all. My toddler has curls like mine and I will definitely be switching her to this dry-hair-friendly clarifying shampoo.
E_bella_rica from Dc
I use this to clarify my curly hair once a week. It was literally just what I needed to bring my curls back to life.
So far, so good!
Kaylin from San Antonio, TX
I was having a build up of product and oil in my hair from a new shampoo and conditioner. I got this shampoo along with the Redken All Soft line that I loved using before. After one wash, my hair was soft and shiny again! My hair dresser recommended I use this once a week to cleanse build up from hard water, products, and excess oil.
TK81 from Wisconsin
I have been struggling for a long time with trying different shampoos to resolve my hair from looking and feeling oily. No matter what I used my hair still felt oily/dirty (even after washing it) This shampoo resolved it immediately and I can finally go every other day between washing now. This is by far the best shampoo and my hair feels SO much better! Definitely will only be buying this shampoo from here on. Love it!!
Toni from Palatine Illinois
I use once a week
Em from VA
I have bought this product before and loved it but this time the product seemed runny and watered down. I do not know what the change was. Very disappointed.
Holy grail cleansing shampoo
Jackie from TX
Hair is the definition of squeaky clean. If you're using it, leave it on for 5 minutes before rinsing and your hair will be super clean. Despite the salon professional warning me there would be less lather than I was used to due to it being a "cream", I find it lathers beautifully. I can also work it through my extremely thick hair without having to go overboard with product.
Also might detect a hint of lemon in the scent, but otherwise no offending scent. And it doesn't irritate my eczema spots on my scalp. Quite the opposite, my scalp is fairly happy for once.
