Where to Buy:

Size: 10.5 fl. oz.

My Rating: 9/10



The majority of women use products in their hair daily that can cause problems if they don’t use a clarifying shampoo once in a while. You may use hair products for heat protection, hairspray for styling, leave-in conditioner, dry shampoo, and of course, shampoo and conditioner.


The bad part is that all of these things cause buildup in your hair that can…

• make your hair look dull

• create an oily film

• make your hair not want to dry

• stunt hair growth

• and more!


What you need is this clarifying shampoo for color treated hair by Ion.

“What does it do?”

Ion clarifying shampoo for color treated hair works excellently to break down buildup in your hair that can cause problems, while preserving the color in your hair. Sometimes hair can’t be cleaned anymore with regular shampoo because the gook is too powerful. Even though I stopped coloring my hair (I’m growing it out naturally), I still use the clarifying shampoo for color treated hair since it is more gentle yet gets the job done.


“Does it lather?”

Some ladies feel that if your head doesn’t get full of bubbles that your hair isn’t getting clean. This isn’t true. Ion clarifying shampoo for color treated hair is sulfate-free which means it’s not going to get super foamy easily. Below I will explain how to apply it so you can get a lather out of it.


“How do I use it?”

You use it almost like any other shampoos. First apply your normal shampoo amount to your palms then work into your scalp. Massage with your fingers for about a minute. This is so you’re really breaking up all that buildup at the roots and scalp. Then apply more and you will get some-what of a lather to work through the rest of your hair. I leave it in for a few minutes while doing something else. Afterwards, apply conditioner as you normally would.


“When do I use it?

How often you use a clarifying shampoo will be different for everyone. For example, swimmers may need to use it several times a week from all the chemicals and chlorine in the pools. If you barely use any hair products, you may only need to use clarifying shampoo once every couple months. Someone who uses an average amount of hair products should probably clarify their hair once a month maybe (this is what I do). You will know when you should use it from recognizing the buildup in your hair that doesn’t remove from regular shampoo.


“Will it dry my hair out?”

Unlike a lot of other clarifying shampoos, this kind won’t completely drain your hair of moisture. If somehow it does, then you are using it too often. What it does for me is make my hair light, fluffy, clean, soft, and even glowy if that’s possible.

  1. Hello, thanks for review, which I discovered surfing around the Web, looking for supplements.
    I wonder that do you think about impact for skin, when somebody dyes hair? These chemicals touch skin. Of course, it is not so long, but if it goes on and on every three weeks, when women visit hairdresser, it can be dangerous. Maybe your mentioned shampoo makes everything easier for skin and hair. As you wrote about Ion shampoo, it cleans hair in a perfect way. Maybe it is the same with the skin of scalp.
    Thanks for providing information about helpful products.
    All the best, happy writing, Nemira.

    • NemiraB,

      Any chemicals on the skin can be bad. Clarifying shampoo can sure remove any excess chemicals that were on the scalp but it shouldn’t be used for a few weeks after getting your hair done just to be safe.

  2. What a great website. I was pleasantly surprised by how much information you have here, and in great detail. Your review page especially impressed me. Never before have I seen so many products being reviewed. You obviously worked very hard to get so much there, and with such detail. And I really enjoyed the pictures. Terrific job.

  3. Thank you!!

    My fiancee and I are in Asia (she is Asian but has a natural red tint to her hair) and she has to dye it for her company standards. We keep having regular shampoo crises on a regular basis.

    Does this Ion Shampoo work for all hair types or is there something else that you would recommend for Asian hair types?

    • Jdoo,

      That’s interesting. I’m curious, what kind of company makes you dye your hair for standards?

      And yes. Ion Clarifying Shampoo for works perfectly for all hair types.

  4. I have never heard of a clarifying shampoo before. I do highlight my hair and use minimal product in it. Perhaps this is something I need to consider. I can certainly see how products and such will affect the quality of your hair.

    So this is a product you use every now and again along with a good shampoo and conditioner? Thank you for the great information!

    • Heather Grace,

      You’re welcome. And yes, you use this when you feel as if your hair needs a good cleaning… when your hair is no longer cleaned well by your shampoo.

  5. Even though Im not really into this, my girfriend definitely is. I shall pass this site on to her. Is this stuff also good for the skin underneath your hair? She is quite sensitive to this and cant really have chemicals on her head. Otherwise do you recommend other stuff? Or is this stuff chemical free? Thanks for the advice.

    • Maurice,

      This clarifying shampoo is pretty safe for most sensitive scalps but for something 100% natural, I recommend this Just Natural Shampoo. The company is based off all natural products that are very safe for everyone.

  6. Overall great review. Keep up the good work! Would love to see more in the future 🙂
    It’s very detailed and thorough! There is not one thing you don’t know about the ion clarifying shampoo for color treated hair after reading this review! Will definitely bookmark this site and maybe show it to a friend.

  7. Hi I was wondering could I use this product. I have been getting brazilian blowout and I’m not allowed to use any shampoo with any sulfate in it is there any traces in this product
