Neutrogena Anti-Residue Shampoo

Hi Pretties!

Today I want to share something that might be a bit on the boring side, but I just like it so much that some of you might find it worthwhile to try out:

Neutrogena Anti-Residue Shampoo

Neutrogena Anti-Residue Shampoo

The product descripion on the Neutrogena website as follows:

Anti-Residue Shampoo is a shampoo treatment that instantly removes up to 90% of dulling residue caused by shampoos, conditioners and styling products.

It cleans hair thoroughly and easily rinses away. Use it once a week, then go back to your favorite shampoo. You’ll find that it works better than ever. Works with all hair types.

Hair is clean and residue-free.

Clean rinsing
Available in 6 oz. and 12 oz.

I’ve been using this shampoo for many years now. I think this may be my third bottle so far. This shampoo IS really great for washing away build-up from other haircare products, such as other shampoos, hairsprays, cream conditioners, mousse, etc. I try to remember to use it once a week, but sometimes I don’t. And when I finally remember to… boy what a difference it makes in how my hair and scalp feel afterwards!

It has a minty, eucalyptus smell — very clean and invigorating on the head and for the senses. I’ve read some reviews that some people don’t like the smell but I really, really like it. It sort of reminds me of one of my other favorite shampoo/conditioner combos by L’oreal… a sulphate-free product with rosemary and mint scent — mmmm!

The only drawback I find is that when I rinse it out, it leaves my hair a bit tangly and “rough” feeling. However, once I apply my conditioner, I have no issues with rinsing. In fact, it actually feels like the conditioner is working better for me after using the shampoo.

The next day when I wash my hair with my regular shampoo and conditioner, I do notice a difference on how it performs and how my hair feels afterwards — it’s like using a brand new shampoo, if you know what I mean.

Previous bottles of this shampoo have lasted me a very long time — I’d estimate at least a good 10-12 months or so before I finish it (thanks to only using once per week). A little goes a long way.

If you’re looking for a good, all-around clarifying shampoo to use once a week, I would definitely recommend the Neutrogena Anti-Residue Shampoo. I believe this retails for around $10 on average at my local drugstore.

I give the Neutrogena Anti-Residue Shampoo: a STANDING OVATION

Have you tried this shampoo? Like or dislike? Any suggestions for another good clarifying shampoo treatment?

Thanks for tuning in Pretties!!

  1. I’ve been wanting to try this! I was using a clarifying shampoo that I got from Sally’s beauty but the smell is terrible. I am for sure going to try this now.

  2. I’ve used this before and liked the results. I think I may have a bottle of this in my spare toiletries bag, so I might pull it out again. Thanks for reminding me!
