I've used Aloe Rid shampoo and it works well. I use Kenra clarifying now...I think it matches Aloe Rid, I might like the Kenra a little better, I don't know. The Aloe Rid clarifying solution (to be used in addition to the shampoo for extra clarifying) is kind of weird though. It's very, very liquidy and it didn't feel like it distributed well through my hair. I couldn't tell if it did anything or not. Maybe its just because I'm used to having suds from cleansing products and the clarifying solution had none. I switched to the KMS clarifying solution, which is a lot thicker and produced a paste-like feel on my hair, which made me feel like it worked better. Who knows though.
