Live Clean Apple Cider Clarifying Shampoo Review, Photos

After reading Tracy's review of Live Clean's Apple Cider Clarifying Shampoo (about $6-$7 CAD, 350 ml at drugstores and mass merchants), I knew I had to have it. I've been using Live Clean's shampoos for a few years and I was thrilled to see a clarifying version introduced!

Containing real Bragg's Apple Cider Vinegar, the shampoo smells like actual apples instead of vinegar. Using apple cider vinegar is common in the no 'poo movement, but for those of not ready/willing to take the plunge of going shampooless, and/or hate the smell of ACV but want its benefits (I'm in both categories), Live Clean's version is a great alternative.

This can be used daily on oily hair, or as a weekly deep-cleanse treatment. It's meant to make hair shiny and get out all the gunk that can build up in hair over time. I don't always use leave-in products in my hair, but I try out a lot of different shampoos and conditioners, and this shampoo is great at removing anything that might build up. I find some of Live Clean's other shampoo lines don't always do the trick of getting my hair 100% clean when I've been using leave-in products, so the Apple Cider shampoo definitely fills that gap. It does make my hair shiny, but most shampoos do -- though of course it's a good thing this shampoo does too!

The Apple Cider Clarifying Shampoo is 98% plant-derived, vegan, not tested on animals, contains organic botanicals, free of SLS/sulfates, DEA, parabens, phtalates, and phosphates. It's great for colour-treated hair, and I'm always happy to use rinse-off products with ingredients that are safe for the environment. 

Live Clean often goes on sale and has coupons floating around too (I've seen them in-stores, on their Facebook page, and you can sign up to their newsletter to get $1 off). I've mostly just tried their shampoos, and they are staples in my shower. I want to try more things by them -- they have so many lines! Body wash, lotions, skin care, baby, even dog shampoo! 

Have you tried anything by Live Clean?
