This shampoo is like a restart for my hair. It gets all the products residue out of my hair with one wash. The main prob I have with it is my hair smells like a wet dog when I use this. Not nice during my shower( after I use my leave in it's better) I think shampoo two smells better (like limoncello), but it doesn't get my hair as clean;( I use this shampoo three on my daughter's hair on the days when she swims in the pool and people have stopped me to comment on her beautiful shiny hair. I have a fine hair/disgusting well water problem so I always switch up my stuff. But I would buy this again because it works.

I have still not found a better clarifying shampoo for price than this. I combine with #2 for cleaning before applying henna and for post-swimming, and always follow with deep conditioner. I wish there was an all-natural alternative but as far as I can tell, this is the best one your money can buy if you aren't swimming in money!

My hair is gray, coarse, with a very wavy texture. It gets frizzy when the weather is humid, too. I use a smoothing shampoo and conditioner, plus 2 separate styling products to get my hair smooth and sleek after blow drying and running the flat iron through it. My hair was starting to get that "starchy", stiff feeling, so I knew it was time to incorporate a clarifying shampoo into my routine. I did a little research, and found Paul Mitchell Shampoo Three. I have used it 3 separate times. I use my usual shampoo/conditioner (Redken All Soft) 2 consecutive times, then this shampoo and usual conditioner on day 3. It washes away all the product build up without stripping or over cleaning, plus it's a great value at Ulta for $9.99. It has a light, clean fragrance. This will become a staple in my hair care routine.

I started using this shampoo on the recommendation of a hairdresser. I had just returned to Australia from a month in the south of Spain, and the water in that area was very hard and had caused my hair to look dull, lose its shine and feel as though there was a lot of build up in there. This shampoo managed to rid my hair of the build-up caused by the water, and left it looking lighter and shinier. As it is a bit drying, I follow it up with a hair mask from Jeval Infusions but I use the mask as a conditioner - also recommended by my hairdresser. This hair routine has left my hair looking great! It feels light and not weighed down, it feels shiny and healthy. I did not find this shampoo overly drying, though this may be because I was following it with the thick mask. I would highly recommend this product. It is silicone free. It lathers easily, which I think is a bonus and really does a good job of cleaning my hair. The scent is mixture of lemon and floral.

I finally started a proper hair regime which includes circling through 3-4 different shampoos depending on how my hair and scalp feel. This one, a holy grail for many it appears, is what I use to clarify my hair. I tried clarifying a few years back but didn't like how scratchy it made my hair feel so I never bothered looking for another product. It was't a problem at the time, since my university piped soft water into our showers. However, moving back to a hard water area meant I needed to figure out how to return my hair to it's commercial hair glory days. So far, I really enjoy this product because I don't feel the need to wash my hair every day anymore, and it lathers very well in hard water.I've read that its recommended to clarify your hair once a week, but I almost never put any product into my hair so between this and the other three shampoos I rotate with I probably only clarify twice a month.

I purchased this shampoo in a salon during a sale after I found out that my current shampoo/conditioner combo was likely the cause of some bad damage to my hair. It was suggested to me to use this to get the build up out of my hair and start with a clean slate. So I went home and used this in conjunction with a fantastic conditioner from another brand. I noticed that it doesn't seem to lather up as much as other shampoos, but I am assuming that is because it is a clarifying shampoo. My hair felt very clean and soft after using this, and it was easy to style as well. I feel like it did its' job. I am now using another Paul Mitchell shampoo on the daily since I don't need clarifying every day, but I intend on using this once every so often to get rid of product build up!I would recommend.

Holy soft beautiful hair!This is a life saver, I have straight, natural, uncolored hair and for the past 3 mos (since I moved to Germany) it has looked horrible. The hard water caused it to tangle, break and become sticky and gummy. My hair had honestly never looked so bad, it lost its sheen and I was losing a lot of hair, some of it due to breakage. The ends were split and a lot of strands had multiple splits. My once HG hair products were rendered ineffective; argan oil, biosilk, chi silk drops did NOTHING to my hair, in fact, it was kind of weird to slather products in my hair and never see an effect, not even a bit of shininess. I knew some of the damage was due to hard water build up in my hair and asked my mom to send me a chelating shampoo. Ulta didn't have the Joico k-pak chelating shampoo and so the SAs convinced my mom to buy this one. I was initially skeptical because it seemed it was geared towards chlorine build up and not calcium/ion build up. But I did notice that the ingredients listed 3 types of EDTA, the ingredient that causes the mineral build up to dislodge from the hair. Fast forward 2 washes, and my hair is in unbelievable shape, it is soft silky, tangle free and in amazing condition. This is a miracle worker and I am so happy with the results, I keep touching my soft hair :)

I'm actually pretty surprised, this works pretty well. I live in an area with hard water and didn't realize how it was affecting my hair. I used this (my mom bought it for when we went to the pool) and my hair is now shinier and lighter (in weight). It doesn't feel like it strips my hair, it is very gentle but removes all of the hard water and the build up from my hair products. This is a close second to my Redken Cleansing Cream.My only complaint is that I got a really big bottle, and it doesn't come with a pump. So I have to pick up this big heavy bottle and risk dropping it on my foot from slippery suds.

I bought the travel / trial size version at Ulta for just $4.50 and had zero expectations. Just needed a chelating shampoo since my home as hard-ish water. But wow, this has been wonderful!! I've tried countless expensive shampoos and conditioners the past 3 years (Aveda, Ojon, Bumble & Bumble, organic brands from Whole Foods), trying to find a combo that would leave my fine but dry and kinda frizzy hair smooth and soft. NOTHING has helped except for this. This glides through your hair and leaves it so clean-feeling yet super soft. Amazingly, it also doesn't strip my color. And I've noticed significantly less hair in the drain. I'm thinking of using this as my regular shampoo!! I'm guessing the magic of this shampoo lies in its 3 chelating agents (tetrasodium, trisodium, and disodium EDTA) plus large amount of the humectant urea. Anyway, this is awesome!

Overall, though this product doesn't work exactly like I intended it to, I have really come to love it. To give you a brief overview of my hair type, it is normally oily at the roots (mostly at the crown) within 12-24 hours after washing, has a natural wave, and contains tons of split ends, breakage, and extremely dry and frizzy ends due to numerous bleaching and dye jobs over the past year. I bought this shampoo thinking that it would be a great 3-4 times weekly clarifying shampoo for my oily hair, but it doesn't really work for me as a stand alone shampoo. This is a REALLY strong clarifying shampoo (unlike the super inexpensive Suave version and others that are deemed gentle enough for daily use),.and I feel like using it more than once or twice a week just causes my scalp to produce even MORE oil. Also, because my ends are dry and brittle, it can be a little harsh on them, and I feel like using this shampoo and then having to slather my hair in conditioner to make up for the dryness is kind of defeating the purpose of clarifying. However, because my regular shampoo is sulfate free and contains a lot of Argan oil, I like to use the Paul Mitchell Shampoo Three either once a week (before a deep conditioning mask) or sometimes even as sort of a base shampoo before using my everyday shampoo, if my hair feels like it could use extra washing. I've also found that this is great shampoo if you are looking to remove strong odors from your hair. I am around a lot of secondhand smoke, and this immediately removes the smell of cigarettes. As for the smell of the shampoo...to each his/her own. It smells like extremely sweet spearmint gum, and while I don't have a problem with it (as it doesn't linger after you rinse it out) some people might. But overall, I do recommend this as a great weekly clarifying shampoo, or as a base shampoo to be used before your regular hair care routine.
