Suave Pro Rusk Sensories Clarifying 'poo is no more

Suave has discontinued yet another item; my Professionals Rusk Sensories Clarifying Shampoo knock-off.

So I'll need yet another clarifying shampoo recommendation.

One that states it will remove hard water minerals so I don't have to read labels looking for specific ingredients.

I'll consider the real Rusk too, if it's still made & sold, or if it's at any of the closest small Trade Secret/Beauty Express stores.

Thanks in advance!
Alright, thanks to meriellyn replying to another person's clarifying thread, I was reminded of Nexxus Aloe Rid.

That may be the answer right there. I shall see.
The VO5 kiwi lime clarifying poo seems to work good also
pw: curls
Cowash - No Poo, Suave Coconut
Conditioner - One Condition
Leave In - KCKT
Gel - KCCC at the moment
*Grumble, grumble*

Stupid Suave! First, they reformulate the Coconut Conditioner, and now the only cheap clarifying poo that removed hard water buildup and chlorine is discontinued.

If you don't have hard water issues, I recommend Neutrogena Anti-Residue Shampoo (in the box). Very effective clarifying poo. It's a little on the strong side but less so than many others and very short ingred list (handy for actually removing buildup instead of adding more).

Oh, we do have hard water issues. There's crusty buildup around every faucet, nozzle & on the shower head, & inside the toilets. :x The only thing I've found to work on them is CLR or Lime Away.

Perhaps you've already tried this, and I know you wanted a shampoo, but...

In hairdressing school I was taught that sorbic acid dissolved in warm water is a good way - cheap and efficient - to get rid of the green hue hair can get from chlorine, and also from minerals in the water. I guess that's what LM thought of when she made the Lemon Aid recipe, but if that's not enough perhaps it's more efficient to go straight with the active ingredient (sorbic acid). Could be worth a try!

Love Jessicurl and KCCC might be my HG.

I just thought of another place to try for inexpensive hard water shampoos; Sally Beauty Supply. I believe they carry one in the Ion brand!

Never mind! I just did a search of Sally's & found these:

Ion Purifying Solutions Hard Water Shampoo

Usage Tips
Beneficial as a body bath to prevent hard water minerals from drying skin.
This one comes in packets that you mix with water in your hand for a single use! I think that would be perfect for travel.

Then there's this one:

Then there are these two ~

Generic Value Products Clarifying Shampoo Compare to: Nexxus Aloe Rid Shampoo

Sally Item #: 264401

Size: 16 oz

The Generic Value Products line was formed, because a group of experienced chemists and marketing personnel knew they could produce a product as good as the "higher priced" quality NAME BRANDS.
# Compare to: Nexxus Aloe Rid Shampoo
# Gently removes build-up, pollutants, chlorine and hard water minerals for clean, shiny, healthy looking hair
# Aloe Vera based formula conditions both hair and scalp
# Time release formula gives hair sustained health, softness, and radiance throughout the day

Usage Tips
Wet hair thoroughly. Apply a small amount and massage throughout the hair and scalp. Rinse completely
Quantum Clarifying Shampoo

Sally Item #: 496400

Size: liter

Deep cleans hair and gently removes styling build-up
# Only Quantum has Equalizer 3 to leave hair in superior condition
# Dual chelating system washes away minerals, chlorine, hard water deposits
# Revitalizes dull hair
# Triple-surfactant system removes styling product build-up without stripping color or relaxing perm

Usage Tips
Lather, rinse, repeat. Extra clean hair has extra bounce.

Three of them on the link don't say they're clarifying, but they're in the same category. What's even more confusing is one claims to be moisturizing, another claims to be hypoallergenic & the other claims to be herbal.
