One of the best for clarifying and can use it even on my color treated hair which I appreciate....Not for color-treated hair...I was so excited to try this shampoo after reading the reviews. I noticed after TWO weeks of using this shampoo (2x week) that my color treated hair looked a lot darker.

Nice clarifying shampoo...I didn’t like the scent nor can I get used to it not lathering as much as a regular shampoo.

I love Oribe shampoos...I think that this shampoo for color treated hair is best for prolonging color, and I have noticed that my glaze has lasted a bit longer than when using other shampoos. ...My hair is long, on the finer side (but not thin), slightly wavy and color treated with high lights.

Clarifying...It's a great product! It makes my hair smell really nice. Do keep in mind though that a clarifying shampoo is recommended before your actual shampoo, so it is not meant to replace it (although you can still use it for that), and the size is quite smaller than the other shampoos from the brand. ...OMG I LOVE this shampoo.

This is some hard core stuff, be careful and only use if you really need to clarify your hair from something crazy like peanut butter. 2 stars because I think it would be perfect for that kind of scenario but not for much else, wrecked my hair texture and left it a frizzy mess, dried out my scalp like crazy and made it mildly itchy. ...Bumble and Bumble Sunday Shampoo is one of my go to‘s. I don’t use it every time I shampoo, or even every other or third time, but it’s really excellent for clarifying and starting fresh.

The fragrance is gender neutral, it's of barely there type which is also a big plus for me. Not too bad for my chemically treated blonde ends too!
