It is a clarifying shampoo. I bought it because one of the reviewers said it would not strip the hair dye off of my hair, except in my case, it does. If you have your original hair color this is very good shampoo. I like the way my hair feels very clean, soft and light after using this shampoo.
It even brings back a bit of my natural curl which is usually pulled out by the weight of my long hair. The scent is also very light, very pleasant.
