I LOVE this shampoo! If you use the conditioner afterwards, your hair feels, looks, and smells fantastic! After I broke my ankle, it was hard for me to shower, so after 3 days (i know, nasty!), without a shower, it made my hair look soooo good. Buy this shampoo, you won't regret it.
In my mind, there are 2 approaches to clarifying shampoo - either use something that strips totally, or trust a less stripping product to clean sufficiently. In my experience, this is the first product to make it into the 2nd category. It definitely cleans my oily hair (conditioner was needed afterwards despite the fact I had skipped a day), yet doesn't turn it into straw. The scent is OK, a very light fresh/pineapple/tea scent - any conditioner or styling product I use covers it, so I don't care much either way. The only thing I don't like about this shampoo and the rest of the brand is that it's difficult/impossible to find Herbal Essences products in economy size bottles up here in Canada - I have long hair, and tend to use lots of product, so I go through a regular bottle much faster than I'd like.
Scent: It doesn't smell fresh right out the bottle, but after it's lathered in your hair and washed out, it smells great.
Cleansing: I don't really use any products in my hair, so I can't say it's super refreshing or deep cleaning ... It did leave my scalp cool the first time I used it.
Overall: I bought this after seeing it in a magazine - Seventeen, one of the girls recommended this for soft, shiny, clean hair. I agree with the shiny and clean part, but my hair doesn't feel soft, but it could just be b/c of the texture itself. Right after I washed it out, my hair felt kind of not smooth but fresh - and my hair seemed to produce less oil (I wash my hair once every other day so it doesn't dry out, but my scalp does get oily)
The scent reminds me of sweettarts for some odd reason. When I first started using it, it did leave my hair feeling "squeaky clean" as someone stated below. Havent been to fond of it lately though. I'm not for sure if I will be repurchasing or not.
One of the best value shampoos out there to clean out all the buildup in my hair. I've used herbal essences a lot, but drama clean is definately one of my favorites. I usually mix and match with a different conditioner though (eg: volume or moisture).
Oh and did I mention the delicious smell. Each shampoo smell like it own orchird.
This gets better as you use it. It works better now than the first couple of times that I used it.
This lathers soft, which is nice, & it definitely cleans my naturally curly, slightly thick hair, but doesn't strip it.. though you do need to follow up with conditioner after using it.
Herbal Essences always has a strong odor, but this smells kinda gross. I've become used to it now, so its not so bad anymore.
Sadly I don't think I'm going to rebuy, but I bought this to clean my hair from softball and it does a good job of that.
When herbal essences reinvented their packaging from the mother hubbard-ish large chunky bottles with pics of herbs and flowers to these new bright cheery bottles i was psyched. Always a faithful follower since the young ripe age of 8, i purchased drama clean about 3 years ago...and i've never turned back...
the new bottles are so much easier to use to grab and squeeze cuz of the skinnier size. It cleans really well, smells amazing (not too empowering though) and when i step out of the shower i feel refreshed and energized. Its wasnt harsh at all when i used it everyday during vball season and with the light conditioner its makes my hair feel clean and healthy. works perfectly with my lazy nonexistent hair styling routine (i pretty much have wash and wear hair and support any product that keeps it that way!) did i mention that its 2.99 CDN?
i love this shampoo. it's smells really good and it really refreshes and cleans my hair, leaving it soft and yummy smelling :)
This is a good smelling, basic shampoo. I have short hair that I wash daily due to use of alot of product. This cleans well without stripping or drying too much. I don't find the scent overpowering and rather enjoy it. The price is great and I have repurchased several times. A little goes a long way so the bottle lasts quite awhile. Good value for the money.
I am a faithful Infusium user, but I had a coupon so I bought this as I tried it once before. It's a decent shampoo, I liked the smell and it cleans well, and it's refreshing like the bottle says. Will I buy again, maybe? It's a good basic shampoo that does the job plus I liked the sleek bottle and the green color was cool too, kind of looks like Prell!
