This is the only Fekkai product that has worked for me. I have fine, oily hair (at the crown especially) and if I use this product periodically to help with oil control and general clarification issues then my hair is softer, looks healthier and I notice an overall positive appearance in my hair. I know apple cider vinegar is the magic trick in this, so what I do now is just buy apple cider vinegar and rinse my hair with that. Fekkai is a special treat since it is so expensive!!!

The third most important ingredient (after water and another chemical) in this supposedly clarifying shampoo is Amodimethicone. That's right, a silicone.
Is Fekkai intending to invent another shampoo that is supposed to get rid of the build-up caused by the clarifying shampoo?
Silicones are horrid and most certainly do not belong in a clarifying shampoo.

I use this shampoo about every 5 or 6 weeks to clarify my hair. I was a bit nervous at first since this is a clarifying shampoo, and they tend to strip the hair and are very drying. I really like this shampoo as it is not drying at all. It doesn't tangle my hair either as many shampoos do. It gets rid of all the gunk and makes my conditioner perform better. I always follow up with a moisturising shampoo and conditioner. This is definitely my go-to clarifier.

I bought this product to help clear away some of the styling build-up from my hair. I soon found that if used more frequently than, say, once or twice a month, it will also strip the colour from my hair. This was an expensive lesson in the workings of clarifying shampoos, let me tell you! In the end, it's not a bad shampoo, just expensive for what it really is.

My perfect shampoo! Finally. I've been searching for a shampoo that can tame my oil-crazy hair for aeons now. Yes, this shampoo is expensive..but it's worth it! I used to have to wash my hair everyday to avoid looking like a BP spill...but seriously with this shampoo I can manage to wash every other day. The smell is quite pleasant, too! One thing I did notice is that I found my hair getting more tangled..but any cheap conditioner can sort this out :) I highly, highly recommend if you have super-oily hair... try asking for a sample if you're hesitant about biting the bullet. x

Liked it initially but my hair seemed to build up a tolerance to it. After I bought my second bottle my roots remained oily and my scalp felt tight. I'll use the rest to deep clean once in awhile but it's too expensive to keep buying it just for that.

I really like this stuff... the smell is pleasant and it definitely makes my product-filled hair feel clean and gunk-free (I have thick, curly hair and use a lot of products to tame it).

this is a wonderful clarifying shampoo. well worth the insane price. albeit i have not tried any other carifying shampoo, this one definitely does it's job - it has the consistency and appearance of a dishwashing liquid detergent (lol) - but don't let that put you off, it has a nice smell and removes all/most debris and product from your hair!!! a must for those that use a lot of leave-in conditioners and sprays like me. will look into more fekkai products from now on

I have extremely oily hair that requires daily washing. Even if I shower at night, I have to shower again in the morning to avoid looking like an oil spill. I've been using Redken All Soft for a few months, and it's made my hair soft, but has only contributed to my oil problem. I've been looking for a shampoo that helped reduce oil, and when I read reviews and the description for Fekkai's Apple Cider Clarifying Shampoo, I decided it was worth the somewhat ridiculous price and went ahead and ordered it. I'm so glad I did! This shampoo actually allows me to use a conditioner (something I couldn't do before because it would make my hair too oily). My hair never looks oily anymore, even after I sleep! This is officially my HG shampoo. :) Also, the scent is fresh and has a "salon-like" smell to it, and it lathers amazingly.
