Funny thing, I used this yesterday and I was like, "hmmm. I should write about this on MUA." I just happened to come across this now. :) Anyways, I really like this. It's the only clarifying shampoo/treatment that I found that didn't dry my scalp or hair like there's no effin' tomorrow. I tried a few out there that dried out my hair and made my scalp really itchy. I use this product once a week. One bottle last me about a good year since I use about a quarter size on my hair once a week. I use a lot of serums,hair balm and heat protectant spray throughtout the week. When I use this my hair feels so clean afterwards. Got use to the mediciny smell. Bottle is kinda awkward. But overall the product works for me :)

Not meaning to muck up the 5 lippy streak this product has been getting lately... This shampoo ruined my scalp.

As everyone else already mentioned, the smell is terrible. I don't understand the use of adding any sort of fragrance to a shampoo if it's just going to stink it up more. The smell and feel of this product seemed to really imply chemically-latent. :
I've been using it for about three months now, and it strips not only product from my hair, but it strips my hair so clean that it strips my scalp of moisture. (I have long, straight, fairly thick hair that tends to get greasy if I don't wash it for more than about a day and a half.) It's given me terrible dandruff and flaking and requires lots of conditioning to make my hair anything but straw by the time I'm out of the shower. For the price my hair has paid, I've seen better results with significantly cheaper and better packaged dollar store brand shampoos.

Overall this shampoo is great. I confess... I use a LOT of hairspray. (Like a ton) And this is one of the only shampoos that truly get out all the residue in one go. I do admit my hair was pretty knotted but a small price to pay to get my hair truly cleansed. I use it about 3 times a week and just follow with a deep conditioner which seems to take care of the knots. My only complaint is that the bottle is awkward shaped and its hard to get out the last few uses of the shampoo without holding the bottle upside down.

I am in LOVE with this shampoo. I have well water at my house and I can never get my shampoo/conditioner to do what it says it's going to do. My hair would always end up greasy AND frizzy no matter what and I never felt like it was really clean. During my search for a good clarifying shampoo, I found this. I have a couple of other Neutrogena products that I rotate in and out of my daily routine and the bottle showed a "no frills" attitude. SO glad I tried it. After one use, I felt such a difference! The smell was strong and even cut through my heavily perfumed conditioner and hair styling products, but now I've actually come to enjoy it. This shampoo has brought my hair back to life. It is now a part of my Sunday in-depth routine! I hope they NEVER discontinue this product!

I decided to try this out after reading other reviews. Unlike the other reviewers, I found that the lather was pretty good. The smell, in my opinion, wasn't that bad. It's sort of like baby oil with a little stronger smell. After a while, it did get annoying. After I washed it out, I could tell that it did its job. After applying conditioner and blow drying, I could feel that my hair didn't weigh down as much. It definitely got rid of all the gunk in my hair. I also liked how the bottle was clear.

I recently purchased this product and I loved it!!! I was wondering why my hair wasn't behaving...and thought it might be product build up...It doesn't lather that much but it does the job. I use the deep condtioning treatment and all I have to say is WOW! My hair felt fantastic...and looked great...I think it hadn't felt that great in forever...this is going to be in my shower forever....as a weekly treatment...I don't think it's an everyday shampoo but it will set next to my salon shampoo..

I like everything about this product but the price. While I was using it my hair felt tangled and the shampoo didn't lather very well, but the results are phenomenal.

OMG this has been a miracle worker for me. My hair has been getting worse and worse, and i've tried so many different products to tame the dryness and how unmanageable it's become.. nothing seemed to work anymore.. and none of my conditioners (even my really good expensive deep conditioners) seemed to really moisturize at all anymore, my ends were looking pretty bad and my hair would always feel straw-like after blow drying. I used other clarifying poo's (my last one was Drama Clean by herbal essences) but NOTHING compares to the results i got with this neutrogena one! I applied, lathered and rinsed, repeated, and then applied one of my rich conditioners... IMMEDIATELY i noticed my hair was taking the conditioner different! After towel drying my ends looked like new, so I applied product as usual, blow dryed and flat ironed and all I can say is my hair hasn't felt this amazing in SOO LONG!!! This stuff rocks! Removed all the gunky buildup and totally refreshed my hair. It feels amazingly different than before, and it's so shiny and lightweight and manageable!

DEFINITE repurchase and staple for me!

Only downside is i didn't like the smell... but the results outweigh the smell hands down. SO worth it! I recommend it to anyone and everyone!

I LOVE this shampoo!!! HG for me! I use it once a week without fail. I have always had decent hair but after pregnancy it had gotten really frizzy, rough and dry. I thought it was the hormones from the pregnancy and eventually my hair would go back to the way it was......well after almost a year and a half it was still pretty bad. I kept trying new shampoos, conditioners and different hairstylists. Nothing. Then I came across a review of this shampoo on mu and thought of trying it. The change was amazing! A lot of my problems stemmed from a ton of product buildup. The rest from a bad haircut. I know we should use something to remove product buildup but I dont use a lot of prducts, I don't even style my hair. Just wash and go. Now that I am using this my hair is back to what it used to be. (I've also found a good hairstylist) It can be drying so I would not use it more than once a week but this will be one of my staples for a long time.

After trying every anti-residue product on the market, I have to say this is the best. The only down fall: it's pretty harsh (may be it's use of chemicals and sulfates). But, if you're looking to really strip the hair of whatever it seems to be clinging too, keep one of these bottles handy for a once a week deep clean. I wouldn't use it too much because i'm sure it affects hair color. It is a fraction of the cost of other high priced hair care lines and works better than any of them. It is slightly drying and irritating if you use it too much, so don't go overboard.
