Had to sign up to review this shampoo.

I have coarse, wavy, thick hair. It's not dry, but definitely prone to frizziness and buildup. This is hands down, the BEST shampoo to ever touch my locks.

Most clarifying shampoos are extremely drying. This left my hair soft, smooth, silky, and full of volume! Of course I follow with a good conditioner, but I could tell my hair was clean without feeling straw-like.

10/10, HG product.

This is an excellent clarifying shampoo that doesn't have SLS and yet, it does a great job of leaving my hair feeling squeaky clean without stripping it dry.
Most clarifying shampoos contain SLS which I avoid due to sensitive skin/scalp and not wanting to strip the colour from my hair. I also didn't want to spend a lot of money on brands like Pureology (meh in my opinion) so Live Clean's Apple Cider shampoo scores big with that.
It does smell like apple cider so if you're scent sensitive, beware.

I'll use this shampoo about once every other week or once a week, depending on how much styling product I use.
I love how my hair feels afterwards and when it's dry, it's soft and manageable. (conditioner is a must afterwards)
I don't recommend using this shampoo more than once a week; otherwise it will leave your hair feeling very parched.

A definite re-purchase!

This stuff is awesome. It was recommended to me by my hair stylist at a salon specifically for curly hair. I often have a problem with build up on my 3a medium length hair which causes it to lose its curl and shine. Like the other reviewers said, when you use this, it tends to make the hair feel really dry, but after using some decent conditioner, it goes back to feeling soft. I saw an immediate difference when it got out of the shower as my hair felt really soft and was easy to comb through. I applied a quarter sized amount of gel on the hair while it was still wet and let it air dry. I couldn't get over the results. It's like my hair went back to normal. The curls were so defined, bouncy and shiny, even without diffusing them. The individual strands themselves even felt like they had less build up. I love that it's SLS free and safe for my hair. I will be using to clarify my hair from now on! Highly recommended for curly girls and guys!

My hair is thick, dry, frizzy and curly/wavy. I've always leaned towards hydrating shampoos and products for my unmanageable hair. I generally use shampoo sparingly - only at the roots and then condition the hell out of my hair and load it up with products to prevent it from becoming a frizz ball. Even my fly aways were a frizzy mess!

I never really thought of using a clarifying shampoo. My hair is so dry as it is, I figured it would just dry it out more, right? Wrong.

I used this shampoo yesterday for the first time. My hair was feeling super dry and weighed down with creams and mousses. It's got a nice, thick consistency and lathers well. Smells like apples; quite delicious, really. I lathered up all of my hair with this (as I said, I normally do roots only, but you wanna get all that product out) and rinsed it out. My hair felt dry as straw! But, once I used my conditioner, it was fine. If you have dry hair like me, make sure to use a good conditioner after using this, or any, clarifying shampoo. I added no mousse and no creams after washing, just a hair serum and let it air dry.

I tell you, my hair is so soft today! The strands themselves literally feel smother. I noticed the difference in my baby hairs and fly aways right away. They're smooth and soft, not frizzy and sticking out in every direction when I have my hair pulled back. This stuff is great! If you use a lot of products, add this to your regime once a week and you will not be disappointed! great to use the day before straightening, if you're hair is like mine.

I've given it only 4 lippies because I've only used it once. If the results are this great every time, will certainly give is 5/5!

---- Update ----

After having used this shampoo several times, I have learnt that getting a little crazy with this shampoo (using a little too much) is not a good thing. I was using the same amount as I would my regular, sulfate free shampoo and this was leaving me with a dry scalp and dandruff within 48 hours...and I never get dandruff, normally. I would recommend using a little less than you would your usual shampoo!

I wash my hair once a week, so I really like a good clean when I do. This is great. It really eliminates of the buildup. My hair feels fresh & clean for a longerror period of time. Love it.

Love this shampoo! Used to have so much build up and residue- but ever since I started using this shampoo- hair became so soft and light. Does not feel greasy at all and makes a difference. Residue is gone and I can go a couple days with my hair feeling fresh. Big plus that its organic! 😄

My hair is so oily I have to shampoo then rinse twice in a row! But this is still an effective shampoo for oily hair because I can feel the cleanliness afterwards.

No harsh chemicals that damage hair or make it feel heavy. Has a nice light scent. This is my main go-to shampoo.

I wish Live Clean would make a shampoo for dandruff (or oily/dandruff combination, which is what I have).

I really like this clarifying shampoo, I feel it's the best I've used, better than Redken Cleansing Cream, Neutrogena Anti Residue, Ion, Pantene, and a few others I've tried.
Performance-wise, I'm sure they all do pretty much the same thing, although this one doesn't seem to leave my hair dry. But what I like most about it is the way it leathers - it really makes leathering so effortless, and it's just so airy that it's an absolute pleasure using it! It doesn't make my hair feel knotty either while rinsing, which is another bonus.
I also love the scent, it's very subtle but I can still pick up a faint green apple smell. Just lovely!

It left my hair feeling light and fluffy, clean feeling.

Price is great.

Overall, a drugstore gem!

I always stayed away from clarifying shampoos! I always imagined them as harsh ... Over drying Things that would leave my hair in a big tangled mess. Recently I started noticing whatever I do to my hair or use in my hair, it was greasy within 24hours! I decided to try this based on reviews and the ingredients and I love it ... Makes my hair so clean without feeling stripped! It feels a little tangled after shampooing so I definitely need the matching conditioner to follow, which they work together wonderfully ! I use this once a week or every other week depending and will definitely stick to it
