My Assessment: This is the only clarifying shampoo I have used that does not leave my hair feeling stripped, tangled, or dry. My hair simply feels squeaky clean. I’m not a fan of citrusy/lemony fragrances, but I like this one. I tend to use shampoos I don’t like to wash my scarves, but this one will never meet that fate =)

  1. Thanks for answering I;ll be sure to get the right shampoo. By the way your hair is gorgeous I just came across your blog and I love it keep up the good work!!!

  2. can you use a sulfates shampoo to remove build up or do they have to say clarifying shampoo

    1. Author

      A regular sulfate shampoo wouldn't contain all the same cleansing agents that a clarifying shampoo would have. A clarifying shampoo provides a deep clean so for clarifying, it's best to look for a shampoo that states that it clarifies the hair.

    I love their products, good luck on your hair journey too!

    1. Have you done the review on the Organix Coconut Milk Shampoo?

    2. Author

      No, I've mentioned in a few posts when I use it but I've never done an actual product review post on it.

  4. My hair is as long as yours right now, but I know it's damaged (alot of breakage) and nobody would point that out when I asked how to stop it.

    I recently went to the Paul Mitchell Salon for a cut and wash and the student definitely noticed the damage and used 3 different conditioners to help it. My hair felt amazing afterwards. Their products are awesome.

    Love the blog and good luck on your hair journey. I just started mine. It's good to know someone else is in the same position 🙂
