Something bad happened, my hair went completely lifeless. Got it cut, still didn't revive it. Then it dawned on me, the Prell had run out and I'd be using only Pert and a clarifying shampoo. I picked up some Prell again and SHAZAM, the hair was back!
No stripped sensation like the clarifying, no weighted sensation like conditioning shampoos, just lightweight fluffy clean hair with body, ahhhhhh!

I have used almost every kind of shampoo and this is my favorite. I have my hair colored red and it doesn't strip the color (if you want to strip your color use head and shoulders). Prell gets my hair clean with tons of body without drying it out. I wash my hair everyday. I love this stuff. No build up and my hair is healthier than its been in a long time. I would rather use this than any $30 shampoo.

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 aboyt $2 but now appears like $4. Still not bad. This is a superb cleanser that clears scalp and hair and skin. Awesome.

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.

The BEST. I have straight, oily hair and seborrheic dermatitis, and this leaves it looking great--shiny, soft, tons of body. The scent is synthetic but I like it, if that makes sense--reminds me a bit of the old Agree shampoo. I'm old enough to remember the commercials for this where they dropped a pearl in the bottle to show how thick the shampoo was (in the late 50's!). As a small child, I wanted to have my hair washed with this instead of baby shampoo because I liked the bright green color. It's still brilliant green, still dirt-cheap, and works better than anything else I've tried. EDIT: I do have one complaint. As a previous reviewer stated, the cap is really flimsy. It refuses to stay open during use. But I suspect it will break off eventually anyway, which would solve that problem, I suppose.

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.
Age: 19-24 Skin: Combination, Fair, Neutral Hair: Blond, Medium Eyes: Green
So here I am after trying every shampoo imaginable, redken, biolage, pureology, kerastase, moroccanoil, tigi, aveda, bumble and bumble, alterna, oscar blandi, joico, etc., a bunch of DS stuff, a bunch of health food store stuff, a bunch of curly hair stuff, and even co washing. Well it turns out my hair loves Prell. It cleans my hair so well without drying it out, and it makes my conditioner wah more effective. I have an oily scalp but dry, frizzy ends. Most people with this hair type go with a gentle (read: ineffective) and a light conditioner. I've found that the best thing is to use a deep cleaning shamoo and then follow it with a rich conditioner. Prell has the richest, most luxurious lather ever, and you only need a tiny bit. Not only is Prellreally cheap to begin with but I can already see that this is going to last forever. The smell is also amazing, although it smells kind of industrial in the bottle, once it is on your hair it smells like orchids and coconut milk, but in a very clean and subtle way. Absolutely amazing, and it makes me feel like I'm vacationing in Bali or something. To be honest, I really don't find this to be too harsh for daily use. As a matter of fact, I don't find it harsh at all. I always have a good hair day when I use Prell, shiny, bouncy, clean, soft, smooth hair is what I get. When I started using this I got so many compliments and my friends (many of which use very expensive sulfate free shampoos) were shocked when I told them I use Prell. They though I was lying but that's fine with me because I want this and the beautiful hair that comes with it all to myself :-)

Ok so I only bought this to fade out my hair color. I lathered up a ton of this stuff in my hair and let it sit for maybe 10 minutes? I know I should have done more, but I didn't have the time. Anyways, the water came out a murky gray color which is good! But since the dye on my hair is permanent (not semi or anything) and it's been in there for 3 weeks, it didn't fade much. But I do have faith in it since the water that came out of my hair was so dark! Of course it's going to be drying people! So I just put in the Aussie 3 minute deep conditioner, but left it in for 5-10 minutes and once my hair dried, it feels normal :] I'm going to try this process again tomorrow so hopefully I can at least fade this almost black color to brown.

Blech, no, this stuff is horrible. I don't see how some of the other reviewers could have scalp conditions and use this? This did nothing but dry my hair out and give me an itchy scalp and I never have scalp issues. I might as well used Ajax on my hair. Plus, for $4/bottle that's pretty expensive for a d/s shampoo.

I have lots of oily, fine hair. I used to have a few split ends, and my hairstylist recommended I switch to washing my hair every other day. In order to do this with other shampoos, I've been trying every dry shampoo on the market for my inbetween days. It was such a pain, but I kept doing it because cutting down my hair washing has drastically improved the health of my hair. And this is where Prell comes in. I've heard that Prell is awful, that it strips hair of all its natural oils and such. But one day I was at my boyfriend's house and my shampoo had run out, leaving me with his Prell. Ugh. But when I tried it, it was absolutely amazing. My hair was light, bouncy, and shiny. And better yet? I can now use almost whatever conditioner I want, because Prell truly cleans my hair, and I can go easily skip a day or even two days and my hair still won't be greasy. My only gripe is the cap, which seems to actively try to re-shut itself instantly after I open it. But the crappy packaging is worth dealing with for this lovely, inexpensive shampoo.

Finally! For some reason, over the past year my hair has done a complete 180. All of a sudden, it didn't matter what shampoo/conditioner I used...my hair was greasy within 10 hours. And I have thick hair. I've been trying EVERYTHING I could find, but no matter what, my hair would maybe look alright for half the day, and then by the end it was stringy and disgusting. My DAD uses Prell on his buzzcut, and one day I decided to use it just because everything else hadn't worked for me. Best decision ever. Right now my hair is smooth, smells awesome, and won't require another washing before the day is over. I know a lot of people have hair that requires conditioning, but for people who's hair becomes oily very quickly, Prell shampoo alone should work fine for you.

Prell, where have you been all my life?! Excellent, excellent shampoo! I have a picky scalp that is prone to seborrheic dermatitis and this is a terrific shampoo if you have an unpredictable scalp. I use this product up to twice per day (once in the morning and one or two times at night) and my hair and scalp are not left dry or irritated. My hair texture can range from slightly dry to slightly oily and this shampoo seems to have helped balance that out. Prell has this reputation of being an outdated product more worthy of removing tough stains out of carpets, but this is far and away one of the best products I've used. I would not recommend this product if your hair is color treated (Prell will strip the color out) or very, very dry. Otherwise, this is a fantastic drugstore buy.

I can not believe all the rave reviews for this product, And quite frankly I am shocked that it is still around. I guess this shampoo would be acceptable if you have very oily hair. I do not, so I found this very drying. DO NOT use this if you have color treated hair, it will strip the color right out. I did not like this stuff at all.
