Feb 13, 2014 - I bought this product because after months of researching, I decided I'd rather use an actual shampoo rather than an apple cider vinegar mix to clarify my hair. This shampoo definitely did the job. My hair felt very clean, and the tea tree oil made my scalp feel refreshed. In regard to reviews about this product being drying, it's not reasonable to expect this shampoo to act like a moisturizing shampoo/cowash. The product packing itself says that it clarifies - which means that it's going to take everything, oils and product, out of your hair. My recommendation (especially for those with tight curls/coils) is to wash your hair in sections to avoid massive tangles and deep condition immediately after washing. I did that this morning and had no problems. (The fact that I detangled prior to washing probably helped also.) My hair feels great - I definitely recommend this product!
