In last month's Hits and Misses post I talked about how much I was hating my Head and Shoulder's shampoo after using it for years. Basically, I had a ton of build up, my hair was unruly, impossible to dry and it was just a big pain.
I was trying to finish my bottle, but then I gave up and bought what everyone had been raving about.
I bought the shea formula because I figured it would be super moisturizing.
Overall, I'm happy with the shampoo...for the most part.
The pros are that it smells awesome. It's also not too runny of a formula and not too thick. It washes out easily and they have a lot of different formulas.
My hair is also more manageable and it dries at a normal drying time, unlike with the Head and Shoulder's Shampoo.
There are a couple of cons though.
For a drugstore shampoo, I think it's kind of expensive for less ounces than what you get with Head and Shoulders.
My hair also lays more flat and therefore looks thinner, but that could be a problem with the shea formula itself and not the other formulas.
My scalp is also super itchy. I don't have dandruff, I have dry scalp which is why I thought the shea formula would be moisturizing but it's not. My scalp is driving me crazy!
I also have an issue where my hair is basically grease city by the time I shower the next morning.That means it's maybe 24 hours after washing my hair. We're not talking about a little grease on the scalp, we're talking grease from roots to ends. It's really gross.
I am willing to try a different formula of clear therapy because I think most of my issues are related directly to this specific formula, and not Clear Therapy as a whole.
Overall, I am happy with the way my hair is more manageable and the lack of build up. I will be purchasing this again.
Disclaimer: I wasn't paid or compensated for this review in any way. I bought the shampoo with my own money and all opinions are my own.
