Previously, I was using Dawn in my hair, it is great for keeping your cuticles closed and removing build up. But the product junkie in my was getting bored and I found it didn't help my scalp issues. So after my hair settled, I was given the OK to use clarifying shampoos. Yippee!
My first to try was V05 Kiwi Lime Squeeze Clarifying Shampoo.
The reason I chose this one first was because I have heard other SL sisters talk about it, and the price I paid was $1.50!! I have used this product for 3 washes, 1 without an ACV rinse and the others with. Without the ACV rinse I found my scalp was OK for 5 days, then winter (very dry scalp) arrived. With the ACV rinse my scalp held up for a few more days. My actual hair shaft, with and without the ACV rinse, was very dry, and I do not use conditioner, so I was not impressed with that.
Pros- 1. Very affordable (cheap) 2. Cleanses hair and scalp effectively 3. Smells like heaven 4. Lathers very well
Cons- 1. Has the 'nasty stuff' in it i.e sulfates 2. Hair felt really dry and stiff 3. Did not help fight dry scalp
My next review will be on Carol's Daughter Rosemary Mint Purifying Shampoo.
