    Comments about Matrix Total Results Pro-Solutionist Alternate Action Clarifying Shampoo:

    Bought this online based on good reviews and because it's a brand I like. This stuff smells AWFUL. I can't believe others are saying it smells great. My first thought, honestly, was that it smells like a medicated ointment. I actually washed my hair again afterwards with my regular shampoo to get rid of the smell. As for effectiveness, I guess it's OK...but sorry, no one wants a shampoo that smells bad.

        Comments about Matrix Total Results Pro-Solutionist Alternate Action Clarifying Shampoo:

        I was looking for a clarifying shampoo to help my hair that was dyed too dark. I was worried because in the past clarifying shampoos have dried out my hair and not lathered well. This one is great! My hair feels so clean without being dried out and it lathers well and leaves my hair looking and feeling great!

          • Permed/color treated/fine hair

          Comments about Matrix Total Results Pro-Solutionist Alternate Action Clarifying Shampoo:

          Alternate Action is the finest clarifying shampoo in the business. Using it prior to perming guarantees a perfect curl that lasts. I use it once a week to remove hairspray and mousse buildup but do not leave it on for a minute because my hair is also colored with Redken Shades EQ, a demi perm color. This has been in my shower for over ten years, and I have recommended it to tons of friends.

                  A:

                  The Matrix Total Results Pro-Solutionist Alternate Action Clarifying Shampoo does not make the claim to be free of parabens, silicones, or oil. All ingredients are listed on the packaging and under the product information on Ulta.com for review. We recommend looking into our Biolage R.A.W. products, which are free of parabens, silicones, and sulfates.
