Clarifying Shampoo (Sulfate-Free)

No. 1059

Restore dull, lifeless hair to vibrancy with this plant-based, clarifying shampoo designed to free hair of built-up product residue and pollutants without over-drying. Non-irritating Suga®Nate 160NC is combined with Cola®Teric CHGL, Cola®Teric BBS and Cola®Mate LA-40 MB for a rich lather that effectively removes impurities without the use of harsh sulfates. Cola®Lipid GS then re-nourishes the hair, providing lightweight conditioning and antioxidant benefits to protect against oxidative stress.

Also great for deep scalp cleansing and helps remove dead skin cells, unclog the pores, and wash away dirt and product buildup from hair follicles. Helps to remove odor-causing bacteria and promotes healthy hair growth.
