    I don't believe I have ever clarified. Would someone please recommend a clarifying shampoo they have had success with? TIA

    Nexxus Aloe Rid is a good clarifying shampoo. It doesn't dry my hair out.

    Side note: You may already know this, but just in case, you should only clarify is you are sure that you need to.

    kim1006, "Ion Clarifying Shampoo". It's really thick, a little goes a long way. They sell it at Sally's.

    Ive only ever used 2 clarifying shampoos: Suave Clarifying when relaxed (made hair feel like straight straw)<<don't recommend this. Since about 04 I"ve used Pantene Pro-V Pure their clarifying shampoo. Does the job but doesnt leave my hair feeling 2 stripped.

    I have also heard good things about Nexxus Aloe Rid. I will be trying this soon to clarify.

    VO5 Kiwi Lime squeeze Clarifying Shampoo. It's 99cents, clarifies build up, and doesn't strip hair badly. You can also try ACV with water too.

    Sally's GVP line carries a knockoff Nexxus Aloe Rid that's pretty decent.

    But this right here?

    This is the best clarifying/chelating/neutralizing shampoo I've EVER used. I have no clue how it does it, but this stuff manages to clean EVERYTHING and still leave my hair feeling soft. :shocked:

    Don't let the fact that it's a neutralizing shampoo throw you off. It's really awesome. :yep:

    I have used elucence clarifying and it drys my hair out. I have a full bottle. I am trying to get through. My love would be ORS creamy aloe. This actually moisturizes my hair. I haven't tried any others. I would like to try the Nexxus Aloe Rid.

    I'm surprised nobody said ORS Creamy Aloe shampoo! :grin: it's a neutralizer/clarifier/chelater in one! I used this while relaxed and this was what I used to start fresh to go CG. (Curly Girl)

    ive also tried Suave and V05 clarifying shampoos but creamy aloe was the best bc it didn't leave my hair feeling dry. :yep:

    Plus 3 on the V05 Kiwi Lime Squeeze Clarifying Shampoo.

    Kenra's Clarifying/Chelating Shampoo is also good.

    Thanks again for all of the replies. Now, I have a decision to make. How about I buy them all and try each one to see what works best in my hair. :spinning:

    I've had good success with the Joico Chelating poo. I then follow with whatever DC I'm going to use, then use the Joico Cuticle Sealer once per month.

    Kenra's Clarifying/Chelating Shampoo - smells good, doesn't strip hair, and is relatively easy to find in the US
