I received this shampoo from my monthly subscription of Birchbox. I was so excited when I noticed not just a shampoo but one that clarifies as well!!! Woo Hoo…the Birchbox team must love me!!!
This French inspired brand has 4 product selections that were inspired by simplicity and a special moment in Paris. Their goal is to deliver quality products with an extraordinary experience. The products have botanical ingredients with innovative technology. With anti aging formulas this color-protecting brand is gluten, sulfate, sodium and paraben free as well as 100% vegan.
I have been using this shampoo for 2 weeks now and here is what I liked…it lathered very well although it is free of sulfates and sodium chlorides (detergents that make shampoos lather and foam and are known to strip color and natural oils). A little goes a long way; I only had to use a dime size. It smelled really clean and fresh of white freesia, golden amber and warm musk. The shampoo also has antioxidants and vitamin C, which help protect against the earth’s environment, and promotes healthier hair.
I know this sounds like it is too good to be true and you are probably ready to run out and buy a bottle now but I have to tell you what I did not like before you go and spend your money J The biggest minus for me is that it was too moisturizing. I have used clarifying shampoos most of my adult life and I must say that I have never had any that felt like this (even sulfate free shampoos). Don’t get me wrong; I like a shampoo with moisturizing properties but not in the one that clarifies. I need to feel that squeaky-clean feeling in my hair when I am removing product build up and pollution. I felt like it really did not clarify because of the remainder of moisture it left behind.
My final grade is 3.5 out of 5 smooches. I would not go out and purchase it for myself because I can’t stand that much moisture in a clarifying shampoo but if moisture is not an issue for you, you can purchase Number 4 Clarifying Shampoo from birchbox.com for $32. Happy Clarifying!!!
