No I didn't want to get a straight up clarifying shampoo purely because of how dry they make the hair. I went for something made for oily hair, so It didn't dry my tresses but still cleaned it. I also mix this with a bit of the strengthening treatment shampoo and this just completes the combo. It makes my hair clean and stronger from the first use. It is such a refreshing combo that smells so nice a cleansing. They don't at all dry my hair and keep the oil and build up away. I use this every sunday with a deep conditioner and they make for the perfect deep cleanse and condition. Please try these if you need a clarifying detox and cant find anything because these work!
