Most Helpful Positive Review Finally found a shampoo I love!!
I have very fine and thin hair and have struggled with excess oil my entire life. I had to stop using conditioner altogether because it looked like I didn't even wash it. I can't begin to count how many different shampoos I have tried, looking for a good match. About 6 months ago my hairdresser recommended this shampoo and I immediately purchased a bottle and have never looked back! I know the shampoo is meant for people who use products in their hair (which I do not) and is used as a "Clean Reset" to wash all product out. For me, it does an amazing job of cleaning my scalp and hair of oil extremely effectively without drying me out at all! I have even begun to use conditioner about 1-2 times per week and don't have to worry about looking like I have dirty hair. It smells amazing and I no longer have a reason to try any other shampoo...no turning back now!
Most Helpful Critical Review LEFT HUGE SCALP SORES!!
I've been using this for over 6 months and continually contracted awful, painful, huge sores and boils on my scalp. I blamed it on things like hair-dye, my climate, even my hormones. I wanted to love this shampoo so badly that I wouldn't even entertain the thought that it could be hurting me. Well, I started sharing it with my husband and brother who was staying with us for a brief time. They both started to mention developing the same exact thing. I can't quite tell which ingredient caused this, but PLEASE avoid this product for the sake of your scalp's health!
ALSO- This is marked as color-safe so I (naively) assumed it would be curly girl method approved, knowing that sulfates are NOT safe for colored hair and my hairstylist had recommended it to me. Well, it's definitely got sulfates. Just be aware of that.

I use this shampoo once a week and it gives me dandruff right after! It does leave my hair clean just dries my scalp out. I have thin, wavy, frizzy, oily hair.
Underwhelming but smells great
Julia from Florida
I love the smell of Biolage, but this shampoo makes my hair feel a little heavy.
Get this for scalp buildup!
caroline from united states
I have been dealing with dandruff, oily spots, and scalp buildup on my thick wavy hair. This shampoo made such an improvement already after one wash. All the flakes, oil, and GUNK (which I could literally scrape off with my nails) are gone! And it smells so good! My hair is also soft!
Smells good and that's it
Marisapizza from Milford, ct
Only good think is it smells good. This completely dried my hair out after one use
maddy from montana
it's alright, but I'm starting to get really underwhelmed with this brand now, I've tried 2 different products for oily hair and they don't work. plus the smell isn't my favorite i don't like the way it makes my hair smell. I don't know if I would recommend this honestly. I won't be buying from this brand anymore.
good for clarifying, but be careful
julia nicole from TX
i love the smell of this stuff, but dont use it more than once a week! it WILL make your hair fall out. i have thin/medium virgin hair and each time i use this i SHED like crazy. it also seems to throw my scalp off a little. but definitley leaves ur hair squeaky clean!
I just want to thank this shampoo for saving my scalp
Zoë from Richmond, VA
I had a bad reaction to some hair dye and was having issues with hair loss/scalp issues. After trying so many different shampoos this is the only one that didn't irritate my skin and didn't overly dry out my hair! Please get this if you feel like nothing has worked well for you!
My holy grail clarifying shampoo
Deb from Hot Springs Village, AR
I have curly hair and I use this twice a month to stay ahead of product and environmental buildup. I have always used Neutrogena Anti-Residue Shampoo (it's a fantastic product) but this seems to be less drying on my hair. It also smells wonderful.

This saved my hair! It gives you tremendous volume and my hair is so soft and clean now!
I've used Biolage Normalizing Cleanset Shampoo for years

Great daily shampoo with clean scent.
Best Cleansing Shampoo
Syd from Florida
I have tried almost every cleansing shampoo and nothing has touched how oily my hair can get (after three days of not washing). My hair type is coarse and thick. Definitely will be buying this again.
I have bought this shampoo many times.
Terri from Boise Idaho
Use once to twice a week in between regular shampoos
Andrea from Tucson, AZ
Gets rid of the buildup from conditioners and hair products so I have healthier hair and scalp.
Mommy from St. Louis
I have long curly hair, and my roots get oily after 2-3 days. This shampoo makes my hair feel so clean and I can go almost a week without shampooing now. Definitely make sure you get a good, moisturizing conditioner. Or I use Shea butter :)
Best to use Once a Week
HumidFlorida from Orlando, FL
I have VERY oily hair. I usually have to wash my hair every other day. This has helped a ton, but you NEED to use it with a hydrating conditioner. I have used it more than once during a week and it did over dry my hair.
Meg from Philadelphia, PA
I had high hopes but this was soooo bad. It washed great and smelled amazing and I was so excited but as my hair dried my head became really itchy. This morning I woke up with a bright red, dry, and flaky scalp. It's been 24 hours since I washed my hair and my scalp HURTS. So disappointed
Great for oily hair
Erica from Knoxville TN
Warning - Conditioner is a MUST with this shampoo! It really does clean your head and it kind of dries out my hair, but I love it. I have very fine, straight hair that has gotten thinner as I've gotten older. I do not color it or use any products and I rarely use a blow-dryer, so my hair is pretty healthy. My scalp is oily though so by the end of the day, my hair feels gross. This has helped me keep my hair feeling less greasy for longer. The smell is very light and refreshing, too. I follow this with the mint scalp conditioner by Matrix (just a schmear!) and my head feels better than it has in years!
Great for oily
Kristin from Atlanta
I had previously purchased the Biolage Cooling Mint for oily hair and it was terrible. It made my head cold and that was it. My scalp was still very very oily. I thought I would try the Clean reset instead and it was much better. This shampoo needs to be labeled for oily hair. I shampooed my hair as usual and this product removed all the oil. Was great and I'll continue to use.
Yes, I would buy this product again.

So far I like it a lot. But I have only used it for a few days.
I tried every shampoo on the market
Vena from Sacramento ca
The best shampoo for flat straight or just wavy straight hair it's really hard to find a shampoo that works but also last more than 3 days before oil stars to weigh down hair I have tried every shampoo on the market I'd say this product is specifically formulated for straight flat hair type mainly
Makes my hair feel clean and soft!

I have very long thick straight hair and my roots get so oily. So far I been using this shampoo and noticed how soft and clean my hair feels without feeling dry and frail. I will definitely keep purchasing this shampoo.
No More Build Up!
Meka from Rochester, MN
I have had build up all my life. It never looked clean or washed. I grew up on a farm with hard water, have very thick blonde hair, and have tried everything to get rid of build up. I used to do Malibu treatments multiple times a year, have tried over 15 different clarifying shampoos, seen a dermatologist, and used to get my hair washed by great clips every two weeks just to get a scrub down. I never wanted to keep my hair long, because I could never upkeep it. I also always kept it up in a pony because
I started using this shampoo about 2 years ago after being recommended by a stylist. With the combination of this shampoo and moving into town with soft water, it finally started working. I got my hair washed professionally a week before the Pandemic shut everything down. I was super nervous about how I was going to last because I had been getting it professionally washed for 10+ years every two weeks. But it finally kicked in and my hair has never felt or looked better and I can now wear it down and long without feeling embarrassed.
This is now the only shampoo I use and I wash my hair twice a week. I also use it was a Biolage conditioner.
I've never been happier with a hair care product.
Anna from New York
This is my favorite shampoo, it's the only shampoo that my hair actually feels clean after using. The major plus is that it prevents your hair from being greasy for at least 3-4 days til your next wash. It's pricey but a little goes a long way.
Does the job
Rostsbf from Starkville MS
I use this shampoo to wash my hair everyday. It does a good job. It lathers really well.
