Most Helpful Positive Review Color-safe, silicone free, nice to use once u figure it out
I have a free trial bottle. First use, i used between a nickle and quarter sized amount and that wasn't enough. It felt like i just smeared a little nothing on my hair that did not much. Second try went 100% better. I used another regular shampoo first to wash out an overnight treatment. Hair did not lather much, so I knew I needed a 2nd round. Reached for the triple detox and used more like between a quarter and half-dollar sized amount. This went really nicely. I forgot about the instructions to let it sit for the chelating / hard water part, but I do have a shower head filter so next time.
I had been using Ion color defense clarifying shampoo, and that is gentle enough but has a tiny bit of dimethicone near the bottom of the ingredient list, which just bugs me a little. That's quite a tall bottle for once a week use, so I may or may not try to finish it before buying a full-size of triple detox. It's very hard to find a color-safe silicone-free clarifying shampoo, but I think this is going to be the one.
Most Helpful Critical Review Destroyed my hair broke off
I had so many hopes for this shampoo. I love anything living proof well I almost everything now. I have very hard water so I thought this might help combat it. I've used clarifying shampoos before but never have any of them damaging my hair like this stuff. When you put it on it feels weird like it instantly dried it out. It never lathered either. I went to wash it out immediately because it just didn't seem right and it felt like it wouldn't wash out. But what was washing out was my hair because it was breaking off in chunks! It left a residue or something on my hair as well. My hair is ruined. It's dry and feels like straw and still breaking off and won't soak up any moisture at all. And it still feels like it still has residue in it from the shampoo. I have done coconut oil treatments(multiple), deep conditioning treatments(multiple), and a Olaplex treatment nothing has worked. I'm very upset and disappointed. Don't use this stuff. I returned it immediately.

I have horrible hard water in my apartment. I get my hair highlighted and toned blonde at the salon. If you're blonde or get your hair color treated, you know how expensive it is. The hard water in my apartment leaves a horrible, greasy buildup on my scalp and makes my blonde hair look dull and brassy. So frustrating!!! This product removed ALL the buildup from my hair. It's so soft, shiny, and truly feels like I just walked out of the salon. I'm thrilled. I'm not sure if this took away the brassy color from my hair, however my boyfriend said my hair looked lighter when I asked him if my hair looked different, so maybe it did help the color?! Long story short... if you have build up from hard water- GET THIS PRODUCT as well as a filter for your shower head that filters out iron. I did some research, and I guess iron is what makes blonde hair brassy. Truly life changing!!!

I just moved to an area with hard water. My hair was brittle and crunchy from all the minerals. One of the store clerks suggested this product. After 1 use, I could tell a huge difference in the quality of my hair.
Jessie from Missouri
I use Clenditioner (color depositing conditioner) daily and have very hard water. This stripped it all out of my hair!! The suds actually changed color as I lathered. I let it sit for 2 minutes as suggested for hard water buildup. As I rinsed, it felt like straw but once I added PHD conditioner, it was SOOO silky!! 10/10!
Everyone should use a detox shampoo
Yvette from Long Island , NY
I used this shampoo today for the first time. I only use product that I purchase in a hair salon. My hair had been feeling dull due to product buildup. I also have curly hair that I blow dry straight most days. I was a little hesitant to use as when I squeezed the shampoo into my hand it was a dark grey color. My hair did feel like straw when wet after washing. I used conditioner after. When I dried my hair with the hair dryer my hair was shiny and felt so nice, soft and silky. I loved it. I don't think I would use this regularly but it is a definite must have....
This gave me my soft hair texture back!
karen from North Carolina
I have been coloring my hair for a couple years and I have hard well water. The mineral buildup was terrible. After just the first use, My hair was much softer as it used to be prior to covering the greys.
MaggieTmae from Illinois
This shampoo sure leaves the hair clean! I can feel the difference in the shower right after rinsing. I find after using this shampoo, my hair seems to hold the style better and longer.
Didn't know I needed it until I used it
Kalieinreallife from East Stroudsburg, PA
I bought this on a whim thinking "I haven't had a clarifying shampoo in such a long time so why not"... y'all, I'm so glad I got this! To be honest I was a little afraid at first when I started to use it... you can definitely tell there is charcoal in the ingredients based off of the color and texture alone... it has a thick consistency, so I'm not sure if I would actually get the pump option (esp based off of other reviews with issues with the pump) and it doesn't really lather, but it truly does get worked into your hair. I was scared when I rinsed and my hair was dry.... I mean like straw.... but I paired this with the Timeless conditioner and my God the results!! My hair is light and soft like I just left the salon. This is now a permanent staple in my hair care routine!
Great Shampoo but...
bhoell from Nazareth, PA
The shampoo is the best I've ever used. My only issue is that the pump is the worst. You have to push it down, pull it up, push it down, pull it up. Anyway you get the idea. If they would redesign the pump, it would be perfect.
Tay from Fl
This stuff is amazing! Great smell, deep clean; your hair will just soak up conditioner afterward.
If you have hard water BUY THIS.
MaxwellsMom from Farmington, MN
We have horribly hard water at our townhome. We actually have the worst water in our STATE. After just one use my whole families hair felt so much better and gave our hair life again.
Definitely saw a difference in my hair!
Chelsey from Lebanon Me
I have really hard water, that has made my hair really dull, lifeless, and oily. After trying this product I noticed a huge difference in my hair!
KennedyE from Ohio
Used this product for the first time last night and I'm in love! It did take 2 quarter size amounts to get it into a lather. After rinsing, my hair felt very clean but also very stripped. I used the PhD conditioner afterwards and let it sit for a few minutes and it brought it back to life! A day after and my hair feels so soft and clean! Probably won't use this all the time but will keep around for when I need an extra deep clean!
Great cleanser for dry hair
Whitty from Pawcatuck, CT
I recieved this as a free sample with a gift with purchase and was hesitant to try it because it's charcoal based. I've never thought of trying charcoal in my hair... sounds kinda gross, but I've heard it's good. I only use salon products, so I'm pretty picky. My hair is super thin and dry, but gets greasy fast. This stuff is incredible. It doesn't foam up, so it doesn't feel like it's cleaning your hair, but it is. I use it only once a week in rotation with my salon shampoo and it thoroughly detoxifies my hair from product build-up and makes it soooo incrediblly manageable and soft. I leave my conditioner in for a few minutes after I use this shampoo. I need to repurchase for sure! Good stuff!
Ibskeetie from Knoxville Tn
I received a sample of this shampoo and it did come out weird at first but I did a second shampoo and left it on for about 3 minutes.
I could feel the difference in my hair and scalp,my scalp never feels clean and I have been looking for a good shampoo to no avail I fallowed it up with a there hair mask and let me tell you my hair didn't fall out like it does with every wash and I was able to get the comb through it with no problem.
Iam buying a full bottle Now and I must say that living proof is my favorite brand and I have tried them alll. Plus I love the smell it's so clean and earthy
Re927 from San Diego
Awful! It comes out this thick charcoal colored substance. It's like putting wax in your hair. It's left a film in my hair that has made it greasy at the crown of my head. Plus it made my hair super tangly and dried out which resulted in a lot of hair falling out. I am still trying to shampoo it out after 5 days! Do not recommend.
would buy but still not as good as the original.
cayetana from Westport, CT
this is an amazing shampoo that does what it says. with 1 shampoo all the buildup from hard water and styling products is out. it also makes your scalp feel really nice, no dryness

I have only used three times and already see a difference in my hair.
My perfect hair day shampoo

I use each time I shampoo my hair. And I take when I travel.
Great for oily hair
Jennifer16 from Atlanta, GA
I got this for my 13 year old daughter. Her hair can get oily and regular shampoos just weren't getting it clean enough. We got this and she now uses it maybe once a week (sometimes once every 2 weeks) and uses her regular shampoo and conditioner in between. Using this too much would really dry our your hair, I think, but using this every now and then works perfectly. After this and a good conditioner, her hair is incredibly clean, soft, and smooth.
Jaimee from AZ
I love this shampoo, my new favorite!
Ab from Colorado
I have very curly hair and after using this shampoo, my hair is bouncy, soft, voluminous and much more manageable. A once a week addition to my routine to clarify. I can't believe how much my hair weighed before compared to how light it was afterwards. And smells wonderful!
Yes , i would buy this again
Kit katt from Summerville SC
I was having a difficult time with my hair breaking off and looking frizzy. It was so bad, i thought about wearing a wig. I tried so many different products and nothing worked. Then i tried the no frizz shampoo and conditioner. I also use the root boost.
And no more frizz. My hair feels thicker and fuller.
And a tiny amount goes a long way. I usually big the large shampoo and it lasts me 6 months or more?
The only complaint is the price. I am on a fixed income and its very hard spending so much on hair products. But it does work
Kt from Massachusetts
My hair feels great when I use this shampoo. It feels clean and light.
Would buy this product again. WilI buy the big Bottle next.
Mely♥️ from San Jacinto
Love this product leaves hair clean from root to ends. Your hair will feel dry but with the use of a conditioner right after rinsing shampoo off and leaving it on will leave your hair soft and feeling sooo clean. Really recommend this product
Amazing for me!
J. Parker from Houston, TX
I decided to try this while on sale during Ultas hair event. I have very fine, long, naturally light blonde hair and an oily scalp. My hair has very little damage (I occasionally use heat tools, but usually air dry). My hair gets weighed down from products and hard water easily. Build up is visible on my hair very quickly- makes it look darker, flat, and dirty. I used a quarter sized amount in my hair, left it in for 2- 3 minutes, and followed with my favorite conditioner from Ouai. My hair looked brighter and shinier, felt soft, light and bouncy again with just one use! My hair did feel a bit dry immediately after shampoo, but that disappeared after applying the conditioner. I love it already!
I can see how this could be too harsh for people with really damaged hair, since it truly seems to strip all of the gunk and buildup from every strand. I expect it could also remove color or glosses from hair too. Works amazing for me though!
