Ion Color Defense Clarifying Shampoo
This clarifying shampoo is safe for color treated hair. Leave it on for 5 minutes and it removes all traces of sticky styling products and hairspray. It leaves my hair light and fluffy. However, it takes a considerable amount of shampoo to work up a frothy lather, which means there aren't many uses in this bottle. But the price is reasonable so it's really not a big issue for me. It doesn't have a very strong fragrance, which I miss, but it does its job well. I bought it because I didn't know there was such a thing as a sulfate free clarifying shampoo and because I want to preserve my precious hair color at all costs but wanted to rid myself of conditioner and styling product buildup. This does a decent job. I've have used several bottles of this shampoo now and it's a staple in my shower. I definitely recommend it.

Best Shampoo on the Planet
This shampoo is for anyone who wants to keep white hair white. It removes the ugly yellowing that builds up with other shampoos.

Gets the Job Done!
I've been using this for a while now....so I feel confident in its ability to get the job done. It absolutely does eliminate build-up and residue. I've never found it to strip or dull my color-treated hair. It does build into a nice lather when you work it throughout the scalp and it actually makes every thing feel really clean. Most importantly, it's NOT drying. Different people may have different reactions or results with this as stated in other reviews, but it's definitely something I will purchase for a long time. Caucasian - thick, somewhat frizzy, naturally wavy hair that I only wash once a week. Because I wash infrequently, I only use this about once a month.

This doesn't fade my color and works great
I have color treated hair and therefore if I use a regular clarifying shampoo, I have to wash a portion of my color down the drain. I was thrilled to find this shampoo in the Sally's store. It's just what I've been looking for. I use quite a bit of super hold hairspray and it builds up on my very long hair and weighs it down. Regular sulfate free shampoo doesn't always remove it. I used this shampoo and left it on for 5 minutes. I then used a deep conditioner and sat under a heat cap for an hour. My hair was bouncy and light because all buildup had been removed. I really, really like this shampoo. I wish it came in a bigger bottle. I only get about 4 uses out of it. It takes a considerable amount to get a good lather, like all sulfate fee shampoos. But I really like it. It works!
