Best clarifying shampoo?

(27 Posts)

Looking for recommendations if possible please. My hair is feeling / looking decidedly manky right now despite regular washing and I'm pretty sure it's down to product buildup.

I'm looking at the Neutrogena anti residue shampoo but thought I'd check here with the wise Mumsnetters to see if there were any tried and tested remedies first.

Thanks smile

Hairdresser told me to use baby shampoo

I’m impressed with Superdrug’s Argan oil clarifying shampoo. I use lee staffords shampoo brush too & it gets the scalp so clean you feel like the hair dressers shampooed you.

I've heard this, tried my kids shampoo but it wasn't Johnson's baby and didn't really help so might see if I have an ancient bottle of Johnson's in the cupboard grin

Either the Bumble & Bumble Sunday shampoo or the Klorane mint one (smells divine, like real mint not the fake stuff).

Thanks all, I will start testing! I've used the Klorane one before - can't believe I forgot about that one, it is gorgeous!

I use the Neutrogena one that you've mentioned, OP.
It is perfect for build-up and I love the smell.

Any bog standard shampoo. In a small container, add 1 tbsp baking powder to 1 tbsp shampoo just before shampooing. Stir the mixture up, shampoo on, rinse and repeat. Use your usual conditioner.
The baking powder lather lifts any build-up right off of the hair and leaves it light and swishy.

Some great suggestions here, thanks all! I just want nice hair again that doesn't look all gross after less than 24 hours and has some decent shine to it.

Thank you smile

My hairdresser recommended one to me last week which she uses herself and said it’s fabulous.

It’s from Home Bargains but am sure other shops will sell it too and it’s called Herbal Essence detox shampoo around £2.99. I must remember to get some smile

I used white vinegar which worked a treat but all these suggestions will smell loads better!
