This is an excellent oldie-but-goodie that has been around for decades. Smells very fresh and clean. Excellent for getting rid of oil and residue, but it can be drying. Probably best for fine or oily hair, or once in a while for clarifying. It only costs around $4

Bar none the best clarifying shampoo, and dare I say, dandruff shampoo. Bought when a salon dye job left me with black vs. dark brown hair. Didn't lift the color, but found it removed all the build up from my beloved Moroccanoil product. Use it once or twice a week now and find my hair is shiny and scalp clean. I am dandruff prone and I find this really helps. I alternate between this and the Moroccanoil shampoo. (PS - stylist fixed the bad dye job and Prell had not altered the color at all)

Like many have mentioned, I came by Prell for the express purpose of lifting some color from an ill-advised at home hair coloring experience. The color had come out too dark, and when I called my hair stylist for advice I was told to try shampooing with Prell. After some internet research, I wound up using the Prell as a mask for about 45 minutes applied and combed through dry hair (ouch!) Well, it definitely lifted color, when i finally rinsed quite a lot of dye went down the drain-it looks like it may have lifted 5-10% of the color-(this was done within 48 hours of the original applicaton). Probably not a great shampoo to use on a regular basis, and certainly not on color treated hair unless you are actually wanting to strip your color. I could see using on a very occasional basis to "clarify" and deal with extreme greasies. But this one application left my hair feeling like straw even after a subsequent hot oil treatment and conditioning treatment followed. And boy, does that scent linger in the hair! I wouldn't buy this product again mainly because one bottle should last me a lifetime-and I also don't plan on repeating a home coloring project ever again!

I have very literally run through loads of shampoos weekly just to find the right formula for my hair type. I have dark brown hair which is straight but very voluminous.
Originally, I wanted a shampoo that would add lots of shine to my hair while eliminating the awful build-up I had accumulated at the scalp. I used this product twice weekly for nearly 5 months now and have not switched to any other shampoo. It is absolutely brilliant. Not only does it add a natural luster to my hair, but I have noticed a great improvement in the overall health of my hair. I have noticeably less split ends, no build-up at the scalp and my hair shaft has become much stronger. Best of all, it lathers so well you only need two quarter size amounts for your entire head. I couldn't have asked for anything more. I cannot believe this shampoo is so cheap. I would have purchased Prell at a much higher price with these results.
I promise this shampoo will not let you down. Best of luck!

This is the best. What more to say? Cleans well. Smells great. Seems to have risen in price though. Used to be about $2 but now appears like $4. Still not bad. This is a superb cleanser that clears scalp and hair and skin. EDIT, 11/16/13...found another great shampoo from prell called Prell Concentrate. You can get it online because it's not sold in stores. It's in a small tube. I have sensitive skin and this cleans very well, doesn't make my skin itch and works with any conditioner. The concentrated version is more potent then the classic, which seems to be more watery BUT still my HG. I would also like to mention prell moisturizing gentle care shampoo, which is in a pink bottle. It's sold in a few places like walgreens and Amazon. Like all prells, IMO, it works just as nicely as a body wash. I never had a bad hair or skin day with these products. They're simple, basic and high quality. And considering how most shampoo has heavy conditioner inside, prells are such a relief.:) EDIT 2/25/14 I think they changed the classic formula very slightly but the results are consistent. I still sometimes fiddle with other products but always find my way back to prell. Pantene and HE have rebooted their shampoo with promises of clean, healthy, flowing hair but it's a gimmick. And those hokey celeb endorsements! Do they think we're stupid enough to assume not only those rich women actually USE the shampoos, but they got hair like that in one wash and not an hour of primping by a master stylist? Oh, girlfriend, please! Hell no. Anyway, just because a famous person tells us it's good doesn't make it true. Prell makes no such claims which is why I trust and respect the brand. No games, no pysch-outs, just clean hair. (Sorry for the rant, I just feel like ads treat us like idiots.)

I can't believe I'm going to say this- but- I love this shampoo. I would never ever have considered buying this except that I used a too dark semi-permanent color and instead of having dark brown hair ended up with black hair. I had heard this would fade color and that's why it bought it. It hasn't actually faded my color any more than any other shampoo but it's made my hair soft, bouncy, fluffy and just really amazing. Who knew? It's all grossly green and old-school 80's and it's on the bottom, literally the bottom, shelf at Walgreens but my hair looks freaking awesome. I have fine, thick, super straight, colored hair that's between shoulder length and bra-strap length.

This is good as a clarifying shampoo, body wash, bubble bath, and even hand soap. Didn't strip out my color, but it did leave my hair a little frizzy. I do think it was strong enough that I was able to go longer between washings, which is nice, but ultimately I think I'd only use this once ina while if a regular shampoo began to leave me with buildup.

I used to use this a lot as a kid. It was my moms favorite shampoo, so we'd use it all the time. Over the years they have changed the formula several times. I think the first change was around in the last 80's, early 90's. We stopped using it then. My moms got it several times since then because she always hopes it will be her "go to shampoo and conditioner". She recently got it again, and it was terrible. After one use it had really dried my hair out. And to make it worse it had rained that day, and I thought maybe it was because of that a funky smell kept lingering around. But the rain had activated the prell smell and it stunk. Last time I ever use that.

I have curly, dryish strands of hair, fine, but lots of it! My scalp gets oily very quickly though, and it's prone to flakes and itchiness. Prell is quite strong for my hair type, but it works so well for my scalp that I use it at least three times a week (I have to shampoo daily). The smell is gag-worthy, but tolerable for the crazy awesome volume and clean scalp I get with this product! Plus its really cheap, about 3 dollars at the drugstore, and doesn't irritate my neck or break out my back.

While Prell has a reputation for stripping hair and removing hair color, I find that sometimes I need to get a deep cleaning to clarify my hair and this clearly does the trick. Additionally, when I am in Florida my hair just deflates and frizzes up; using Prell gives it volume and keeps it fresh looking longer. So, I gotta still keep it along with my regulars such as Pureolgy, Biolage, etc. Besides, my shampoo changes with the season, humidity factor and such.
