Neutrogena Anti-Residue Shampoo

Neutrogena Anti-Residue Shampoo ($5) is a shampoo treatment that instantly removes up to 90% of dulling residue caused by shampoos, conditioners and styling products.   It cleans hair thoroughly and easily rinses away.  Use it once a week, then go back to your favorite shampoo.  You'll find that it works better than ever.  Works with all hair types.

Neutrogena Antiresidue Clarifying Shampoo - Review

I have frizzy hair that is quite prone to bouts of dullness and looking and feeling quite rough with even the slightest bit of residue on it.  Since I color my hair, most of the time I have to use color-protectant shampoos and conditioners (nothing fancy, I use drugstore - Dove).  About 2 weeks into my hair color, though, I can easily get away with using clarifying shampoos.  Also, I do occasionally, much less frequently than I ought to, indulge my hair in some warm coconut-olive oil treatment before a wash, and a good clarifying/heavy-duty shampoo helps wash off the heavy oils from my hair.  I generally depend on Lush I Love Juicy, but I have been on the lookout for a cheaper, drugstore alternative, and the Neutrogena Anti-residue Shampoo seemed to fit the bill.

Neutrogena Anti-residule Shampoo comes packaged in a cologne-look alike (according to my sister) clear plastic bottle, and the shampoo itself is also clear.  The shampoo has a strong, clean laundry-soap/antiseptic kind of a smell to it, and I have read a lot of reviews where people are quite put off by this.  It is strong, and while I don't really mind it so much while using, the smell does linger on in the hair :-|  Anyway, that minor gripe aside, the shampoo lathers quite well and does a good job of leaving hair squeaky clean.  It isn't harsh like how I expected it to be - especially going by how it smells!  In fact, I bought this primarily to use on my oil-hair days, and it wasn't anywhere near as effective as the Lush I Love Juicy shampoo at removing the oil.  Much milder.  Definitely need to follow up with a conditioner, though.  If you have really oily, limp hair, maybe you can skip.

Overall, I find this a decent drugstore clarifying shampoo.  It doesn't have an encyclopedia-sized ingredient list and does a good job of removing any residue from my hair without leaving it rough.  This is not a replacement for regular shampoo - it is a clarifying/residue-removing shampoo, more like a treatment - and I would not recommend using this more than once week (or every 2 weeks).  The Neutrogena Antiresidue shamoo won't replace my Lush shampoo but will do perfectly fine for a cash-strapped day :P

  1. Ah! I've now gone through two bottles of the Lush I Love Juicy. I loved the scent which reminded me of Wrigley Juicy Fruit chewing gum and the short ingredient list. It did SUCH a great job removing the oils from my scalp and hair that I've concluded it's a bit too strong for my use. Maybe I need to stroll down the drugstore aisle again.

    1. Haaa ya...it definitely isn't for everyone..and not a regular use shampoo either. I alternate with Lush Curly Wurly, but we Indians put on a TON of oil when we do our oil treatments, so it helps :D :D :D
