Water Works Clarifying Shampoo

8.5 oz Item 2238639

Find in Store-

Water Works Clarifying Shampoo is formulated with gentle yet deep cleansing fruit acids to rid hair of salt water residue, chlorine and the minerals from hard water that make it coarse, dry, and unmanageable. A special blend of lemon, grapefruit and orange flower extracts, and vitamins create a shampoo that gently removes build-up without stripping hair. Great for color-treated hair, Water Works helps to maintain color, manageability and shine.
Using your fingertips, gently massage through wet hair and scalp. Leave in hair for two minutes, then rinse with warm water and follow with a Ouidad conditioner. Use weekly, or more if needed.

        I have fine, curly hair that needs to keep moisture in but not weigh it down. I also needed to clarify it as well. This product did just the right thing. I love it. I use it once a week. It makes my hair look amazing. I will be purchasing it again.

            Comments about Ouidad Water Works Clarifying Shampoo:

            I've never had problems with my scalp before I moved to an area with hard water - after trying different types of vinegar rinses and even rinsing my hair with bottled water - this product is a life (& time) saver! After two uses my scalp and hair feel better than ever! Highly recommend - if a water softener is not an option this is the next best solution to hard water buildup!

              This is great for a once in a while deep clarify. It cleans well and removes the oil but doesn't leave your hair tangled. Smells nice too. I use this about once a month. I have thick 4a hair.

                  We have hard water. Tried this product to help. Works well but dries my hair out even with conditioner. Will still use it once a week but add a deep conditioner.

                        Hello!

                        This product is not silicone free.
                        A silicone such as dimethicone is best used in small doses .Dimethicone is safe because the molecules are too large to physically enter your body beyond the upper living cells. Silicones such as dimethicone create a barrier between your hair and the elements; so in a way strands are protected from frizz, humidity and precipitation. When products containing silicones are used with moderation, your curls are not at risk!

                        A:

                        This shampoo is not sulfate free or paraben free. Water works uses an Ethoxylated surfactant system which means its more gentle on the hair as it works to deeply cleanse- removing metals, chlorine and product buildup on curly hair and scalp.
