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.

This is a great clarifying shampoo. My scalp and hair felt clean and refreshed after use and when used with the Reconstructing Masque my hair was soft and tangle-free. Typically my hair gets greasy the next day after washing and I have to use a dry shampoo to freshen it up (I work 48 hour shifts occasionally), but the day after using this my hair was still soft, tangle-free, and not greasy-looking. The scent is mild and very pleasant, although it doesn't linger in the hair for very long after use. As with all clarifying shampoos, this will pull color if you have dyed hair. My highlights which were just recently done are lighter after using this, which is fine because I think my stylist toned them down too much for my liking, but use with caution on colored hair.

Not impressed
Sampled

I didn't really like this at all. Had to use a lot to even get a lather and it smelled terrible. I don't recommend this especially for thick frizzy hair

I love the smell, rather thick...
Sampled

I've used this clarifying shampoo a couple times since I got it; the one thing you probably have to do is put a small amount in your hand, rub wet hands together, then apply to scalp. And make sure you use enough water, it feels very thick and somewhat oily, and I was thinking, hey this is like putting OIL on my hair! but it worked. And smells good. I think it made my thin, scraggly hair look and feel a bit thicker!

No 4 Shampoo

Shampoo is pretty good for use after a few days of not washing. Leaves hair with a slight glossy sheen, but makes for more workable hair when styling after shower.

Nice

This is a great once a week clarifying shampoo to remove styling product buildup and environmental factors. Super thick and does take a little effort to distribute and lather.

Nice product
Sampled

It's very thick and takes some time to work into a lather but it seems to work really nicely. I wouldn't use it more then once a week though since its seems like it could easily dry my hair out.

Smells amazing

Wish I could give this 10 stars for the smell alone. This is top 3 best smelling shampoos I've ever tried. Left my hair shiny, clean and soft. And smelling amazing. Loved this!

Felt a little stripped
Sampled

Maybe it's because it's a clarifying shampoo, but when I rinsed it out, my hair felt a little stripped. Even though my hair was wet, it still felt a little dry and tangled. When my hair was dry it was very light and had body, but the feel in the shower made me feel like I needed a deep conditioner
