Deep cleanse without drying

After several days of using dry shampoo, my scalp was in dire need of a deep cleanse, and this shampoo did the trick. It effectively removed build-up, excess oil, and impurities, leaving my scalp feeling incredibly refreshed and rejuvenated.

I noticed an immediate difference in the cleanliness and health of my scalp after just one use. The shampoo lathered well, had a pleasant scent, and left my hair feeling soft and manageable. I appreciate that it is formulated to detoxify without stripping the hair of essential moisture, making it suitable for regular use.

Feels So Clean

I love this shampoo because of how deeply it cleans my scalp & helps remove product buildup. I use this one only once a week, but it’s definitely one of my favorite hair products right now.

My new best friend. It’s amazing. I would buy this right now, if I could because it made my entire scalp hair situation less scary, and that I having detox shampoo in the corner makes me excited. I’ve tried so many things to help my scalp and hair after losing so much hair and none of them have made me feel as weightless and optimistic as shampoo I can’t wait to until I can afford this, I’m in my 30s I want my hair back. And just because I’m on disability doesn’t mean my hair is any less painful to lose as a woman.
