Number 4™ Clarifying Shampoo - 8.5 oz

At the end of a long day we could all use a fresh start——and the same goes for our hair. When product buildup and styling stress leave strands feeling and looking dull, this clarifying shampoo, subtly scented with white freesia, golden amber, and warm musk, gently cleanses without stripping moisture or color. Black currant and soy restore vibrancy, acai berry and vitamin C deliver youth-boosting antioxidants, oolong tea and Irish moss defend against environmental damage, and lemongrass and oatmeal gently cleanse and purify. This shampoo is also vegan-friendly and free from sulfate/sodium chloride and parabens.

I don't have a huge problem with build-up with my hair, but I haven't used clarifying shampoos before, so I was expecting some sort of difference, at least. I didn't feel like this product had the desired result, and in addition, it was difficult to apply. The consistency was thick and it did not lather well, so it was hard to tell whether or not I was applying enough to coat my hair effectively. Even following it up with the hair mask, I felt like my hair was stiff and dry after use.

Just alright

This shampoo is just okay. I didn't dislike it, but I didn't love it. It doesn't lather super-well and it left my hair feeling a bit dry.

I am looking for products that soften and smooth my dry course hair. The hair mast was great but I don't typically use a clarifying shampoo.

Number 4 Shampoo

Thus shampoo was too thick for my hair. I didn't think it actually washed my hair.

Did a good job

This product works well but was really thick, it made it a little hard to get a good lather.

Perfectly adequate

This shampoo is just shampoo... It smelled fine, came out a bit thick and seems to have done the job of cleaning my hair. Other than that, it's pretty standard.

I was excited to try this shampoo, but it was really disappointing. I have oily hair, and this shampoo was too thick--I felt like I couldn't rinse my hair with water 100%. It took me forever to rinse my hair. I liked the scent, but this shampoo was not for me.

I love the way it smelled!
Sampled

I was so disappointed! I really loved the way this shampoo smelled. It has an amazing clean, fresh scent. However I have very long hair ( in layers, down to my waistline). The clear texture and the scent was great, but I felt like it really stripped the oils from my hair and did not replace any moisture. My hair was very hard to manage afterwards, I had to use a separate conditioning product to comb through with better ease because my hair was tangled! Another thing I noticed is that the scent does not last. In fact is disappears almost after you rinse and towel dry. I also felt I did not have enough shampoo in the little bottle to really lather up. I am not sure if that is why my hair was so tangled and hard to manage afterwards. Perhaps I needed more to really lather up and provide the nourishing effect my hair really needed. The usual small sample bottles or little bag samples do not provide enough product to get a good shampoo. That maybe why I also experienced very low suds! :( Maybe in the future birchbox can work with salon companies in asking us/customers a better detailed hair profile that covers lengths and types of hair. That way a customer can obtain a proper sized salon product in order to sample with honesty and better accuracy.
