Experts say there is no need to spend a lot of money on shampoo because almost all formulas rely on the same basic ingredients. Suave Daily Clarifying is a deep-cleaning shampoo that is very similar to Neutrogena Anti-Residue, yet costs far less. Reviewers say that it does an excellent job of removing product buildup from hair, leaving it clean and manageable. Experts recommend using a deep-cleaning or clarifying shampoo whenever hair starts to look dull. If you have oily hair, however, you may wish to use it every time you wash. Users at MakeupAlley.com and TotalBeauty.com suggest following up with a conditioner, though, because Daily Clarifying can leave hair feeling dry. If your hair is dry or damaged, experts recommend using a conditioning shampoo like Garnier Fructis Fortifying Daily Care (*Est. $4 for 13 oz.).
