This is my go to for clarifying my hair. To begin, I want to mention that I have Asian hair that is generally straight, medium in coarseness that is highly resistant to curling and fine, but lots of it. I have used the Biolage clarifying and also Redken’s cleansing cream. Redken’s is wonderful if you use a lot of product because it really does a great job clarifying. I minimally use hair styling products because my hair doesn’t like anything but to be straight, so Redken was effective BUT dried out my hair to a point of greasiness. When I use the Awapuhi, it gives it that delicate balance of a clarified clean feel but just enough moisture to my scalp that it does not make it greasy. When I air dry my hair, it feels silky, not weighed down, and is full of bounce. I switch back and forth between this and the Paul Mitchell Tea tree special because I hate the feeling of oiliness in my hair but still get that clean feel. The combination with the Paul Mitchell shampoos and Sebastian Penetraitt conditioner have been the best combination for me. When I get my hair trimmed, my stylist always compliments me on the health of my hair and I don’t get a lot of split ends. For reference, I have tried brands from Biolage, AG, Joico, Alterna, Pureology, Matrix, Redken, TiGi S factor, and most of the drugstore shampoo brands. I may stray at times but will always come back to this combination, which I have used for more than 5 years!
