This is a thick gel consistency that has a beautiful strawberry and ginger fragrance. The fragrance is incredible! The ginger adds depth to the strawberry and gives it a nice warmth! It’s a full on strawberry fragrance for sure but the ginger gives it a nice subtle warmth.
This doesn’t create a ton of lather but there is some foam. It doesn’t feel like a silicone-free formula but still has the thicker gel consistency of a regularly formulated shampoo which I like. It rinses clean away easily and it leaves my hair not only smelling incredible but super, duper squeaky clean. I used it twice a week for the last month (you don’t need to use it that regularly, once a week is fine!) and it did an amazing job removing buildup left over from WEN and Carol’s Daughter. It rinses silicons from my hair and leaves it feeling very, very clean. And thankfully not like straw! I didn’t experience any drying with this and felt it was quite gentle on my drier hair without over stripping. Lush is great but some of their shampoos can leave my hair quite dry but Clairol’s formula seems to agree with my hair. Keep in mind after you wash away much of the buildup in your hair you’ll find your hair feels lighter and kinda “wispy” which can make it a chore to style at times. But personally, I don’t mind in the least as sometimes you just really need to detox your hair and scalp and this formula does an excellent job of it.
