Size 33.8 oz · ITEM 1728989
exclusive· limited edition· buzzworthy· online only
$50.00

What it is:
A cleansing shampoo with non-stripping citrus extracts that target, break down, and remove heavy residue build-up without depleting essential moisture and nutrients.

What it is formulated to do:
Curls are porous, absorbent, and prone to residue build-up that makes hair look and feel dull and dingy—and can even prevent curls from absorbing moisture and forming properly. Typical clarifying shampoos are too harsh for curls and can strip away moisture and nutrients. Water Works Clarifying Shampoo is a powerful chelating formula just for curls that uses non-stripping citrus extracts to cleanse and remove residue build-up without depleting essential moisture and nutrients. Extremely gentle and even safe for color-treated hair, curls are left clean, completely nourished, and ready for styling.

What it is formulated WITHOUT:
- Parabens
- Phthalates

What else you need to know:
This product is free of silicone and mineral oil.

I love this shampoo!...Squeaky clean, not drying...I love that the packaging addresses a functional need with the nozzle so that you can apply the shampoo directly to the scalp to clarify but I found that while using I?t in this way sometimes the nozzle closes without knowing so perhaps a different closure would work better....But the product itself works great and I definitely recommend for anyone looking for a good clarifying shampoo.
