This is a clarifying shampoo so reviewers note not to use it every day. It is recommended to only shampoo your hair two or three times a week anyway!

Promising review: «OK, I normally never write reviews but for this I just had to. This shampoo SAVED MY LIFE! My hair has always been flat and oily, and I had lots of sebum in my brush. I got this shampoo about a week ago and it worked since the first time I used it. My hair is softer and lighter; I can definitely feel the difference. Even my friends have noticed and said my hair looks good. AND I don’t have to wash my hair every day now. It still looks good on the second day, which it did NOT before! I can’t recommend this product enough if you have oily hair like me.» —Dermstore Customer

Neutrogena Anti-Residue Shampoo removes all the ugly stuff that builds up in your hair and scalp over the week from sprays, styling products, and dirt, which can all contribute to oily, stringy hair. This will deep cleanse for fresh, revitalized locks.

Promising review: «I have been fighting greasy hair since the birth of my last child two years ago. I have tried so many different brands of shampoos and conditioners in search of a product that would prevent the greasiness I have been fighting. After reading reviews, I tried this. It has definitely made an improvement in my hair. My hair still gets greasy, but I can go two to three days without washing, which was nearly impossible before. I would recommend this product to anyone searching for a product to provide a deep clean.» —SheShe

Promising review: «The best I’ve used. Literally five stars. My scalp is oily, itchy, I have dandruff and the buildup was crazy. I used this shampoo today and also used the conditioner.

Promising review: «Super fine hair and oily scalp here and this shampoo has helped me with both. The key — double shampooing. If you’re an oily haired woman like myself, then I suggest trying this. I follow up with Living Proof Full Conditioner but only on the ends. I do this every other day and the routine has transformed my hair. Completely clean for one to two days and minimal oil.

It isn’t oily or dry; I can go wearing unwashed hair for two days now without any dry shampoo!» —olivialilyyy

L’Oréal Paris Elvive Clay Rebalancing Shampoo uses not one but three refined clays to instantly nix oily roots, hydrate dry ends, and ensure your hair’s texture won’t be compromised again — and it’s so incredibly affordable too!


Promising review: «Love this shampoo! I tend to have oily roots and workout most days (six to seven days a week) doing higher intensive weight intervals, which means gross, sweaty hair nearly every day on top of the oiliness. This shampoo has been great at keeping the oil under control. When I do an active recovery day and can skip a wash, there’s no oil buildup and my hair still looks good! I realized just how effective this shampoo was when I ran out and tried another product for a couple weeks. Within 24 hours of washing with another product my hair looked gross! I switched right back and haven’t had any issues.» —Jessica

Get it from Amazon for $3.49.
