Description

It's hard to contain my excitement over this one! I love how the micellar water gently washes away impurities while leaving your natural moisture intact. And I'm obsessed with the rich lather and how it never makes your scalp feel dry. You can use this on the finest, thinnest hair or the thickest, curliest hair and get the same perfect results.

How to:
1. Wet your hair, then create partings with the pointed tip and apply shampoo directly to scalp.
2. Massage it in to create a rich lather. Add a little water if needed.
3. Work shampoo through the middle and ends as you rinse it out. Repeat if necessary.
Tip: the perfect shampoo for alternating between one you already love and something a little more purifying.

Contains Zip-Up Technology (tm), our proprietary strengthening complex designed to "zip-up" split ends while targeting weak areas of the hair, smoothing the appearance of damaged cuticles and helping to protect hair from environmental stressors and color fade.

Q: Two questions: will this work for post-partum dandruff? Also will this cause breakouts for those with oily skin?

submitted by spree - 2 years ago
  • A: Hello! Although the Micellar Shampoo is not specifically designed for those with dandruff, we have received a ton of great feedback from those who do. If you are concerned with any possible sensitivities with your skin, we highly suggest performing a spot test on your skin prior to using the product.

Q: HI! I have a condo with SUPER soft water, and can get regular shampoos or clarifying shampoos to fully rinse out - will this help with that?

submitted by sb - 3 years ago
  • A: Hello! Thanks for your question. Yes, the Micellar Shampoo should rinse out completely. We recommend applying the shampoo directly to the scalp (with the pointed tip) and then work the shampoo through the middle and ends as you rinse it out.

Q: This product claims to remove buildup, does that mean it can be used as a clarifying shampoo?

submitted by Nonie - 3 years ago
  • A: Hello! Our Scalp Purifying Micellar Shampoo was created for purifying the scalp. If wish to clarify your entire head of hair, we would recommend our Deep Clean Clarifying Shampoo. We recommend this shampoo for those who are in need of a deep hair cleansing.

Q: Is this product good for build up associated with having hard water?

submitted by Catiedid43 - 4 years ago
  • A: I'm not sure about the micellar shampoo but the Kristen Ess website specifically talks about using the instant exfoliating scalp scrub for hard water deposits on the scalp! :)

    submitted byAnonymous - 4 years ago

Q: Is the tip supposed to unscrew or something, because I can't get it to budge. All I can do is unscrew the whole lid which defeats the purpose of using the tip.

submitted by NT - 5 years ago
  • A: Thanks for the question! The top will unscrew when turned clock-wise. Hold the base (below the nozzle) and turn the tip to the right and it should unscrew easily. Hope this helps!

Q: does it make your hair greasy? because my hair is already greasy, so I don't want something that will make it worst.

submitted by Lulu - 5 years ago
  • A: Thanks for your question! No, micelles are like little sponges that soak up dirt oil and excess product and gently wash them away without stripping the hair.

I bought this for a family member with sensitive skin and it is one of the best clarifying shampoos that do not completely dry out your scalp. Excellent price found at your local drug store. Loads better than clarifying shampoos from more mainstream brands like Pantene

Gentle Clarifying Shampoo

I like to use a clarifying shampoo every couple of months. It helps when my favorite shampoos don't seem to be working as well. This gentle, clarifying hair wash uses micellar water to get my scalp super clean, while gently giving my hair and roots a re-set. My hair feels smooth and refreshed. It is also great before a keratin treatment or Brazilian Blowout.

My holy grail shampoo

This has been my main shampoo for almost two years now. I know some people will alternate it with a different shampoo, but for me, it's exactly right for my hair for regular use. It doesn't leave me greasy, and most shampoos do. The price is also reasonable. I hope they never stop making this product!

Noticed serious hair loss after using this product. Have never experienced anything like it- left my hair dry and brittle and yet looked greasy after it finally dried. I spent a month working on getting my hair back to normal after using this product once. For reference, my hair is thick and straight, although after reading many reviews, this product seems to bother various hair types ranging from thin to thick.

Highly effective and works for seborrheic dermatitis. My scalp was left clean and supple, while my relaxed hair was left super soft. I'm impressed, because the only product that has truly ever worked for me is Head and Shoulders, but it's loaded with ingredients that aren't so clean. The scent is lovely...for a mature woman. It's not candy necklace, coconut, strawberry, vanilla, nauseating sweetness...thank goodness. It smells amazing. Most importantly, my scalp felt great after cleansing.

Atti - 9 months ago
This is my favorite shampoo. I have dry, sensitive, and chemically damaged curly hair. I wash my hair 1-2 times a week and this is perfect for me. I've been struggling to find something that makes my scalp feel clean but not stripped. I usually shampoo twice when I use this product and it's been my favorite so far. I've probably repurchased this at least 5 times.

Lauren - 1 year ago
I've been using this shampoo for months and I really like it, but I noticed my scalp was getting drier faster than usual when I was using this as a daily shampoo. I have fine hair and I wash my hair about 3 times a week. I decided to start using this occasionally when I wanted a deep clean and switched to a different shampoo for more regular usage and my scalp is so much less itchy and dry (I'm prone to dry flakes, not oily flakes.) Sometimes I will use this one for the first rinse and then shampoo a second time with The One Signature Shampoo (also Kristin Ess) and my scalp feels amazing, plus I don't get dry flakes or itchiness between washes!

I took a shot on this because it was on sale, well now I think I understand why it was on sale- it didn’t really do much. I guess it cleaned my hair after using an obscene amount, but was certainly nothing to write home about, it didn’t lather well and I had to use so much of it. Just use a different one honestly.

I love this shampoo! I usually go a week between washes and I need something that really cleans my hair and scalp. I like how this has the nozzle so you can lay the product right onto the scalp. I do a double shampoo and my hair gets SO clean without ever feeling stripped or dried out.

I've lived in London for five years and have always struggled with my hair becuase of the hard water in this city. It adds so much chemical build up in your hair and skin and my hair always looked oily and flat. After ONE WASH with this shampoo, my hair is feeling almost back to my Australian-water best. Will definitely keep using it and can't recommend it more.
