Neutrogena Anti Residue Shampoo Review: Best Clarifying Shampoo?

Hey Guys,

With this new year, I got my hands on a lot of new products and new DIYs. I am restarting the Reader’s Queries Section as well. So don’t forget to send in your queries too. So without further ado let me start today’s review.

I have with me a clarifying shampoo by Neutrogena. Its called Neutrogena Anti Residue Shampoo. I have been using it for more than 5 months now and I will be sharing my experience with this baby.

What Is A Clarifying Shampoo?

If you are unsure of what a clarifying shampoo is let me explain it to you in brief. So you use so many products on your hair and scalp like the hair oils, shampoos, conditioners, serums, leave-ins, hair sprays, hair colors, and the list goes on and on. So each product that you use, leaves a little bit of product on your scalp no matter how well you rinse it.

Over time these products form a layer of build-up on your hair and scalp, leaving the pored clogged and your hair health compromised. That’s when clarifying shampoos come in the picture. They deep clean your hair and scalp to remove the buildup so that your hair and scalp and breath again.

This shampoo comes in very normal packaging which honestly after the amount I spent on it, I expect the packaging to be more chic and stylish. Although I am glad that it is travel-friendly. The shampoo is normal consistency and lathers quite well. It has a medicated smell which bugs a little.

My Experience Using Neutrogena Anti Residue Shampoo

I picked this baby up after I finally emptied my previous Halo egg clarifying shampoo. You all know how much I love that shampoo so picking up another shampoo and dreaming it being as good was something I seriously doubted.

But this baby proved me wrong.

This Neutrogena anti residue shampoo lathered well and removed dirt and greasiness from my scalp. It even removed all the flakes without leaving my hair drier, unlike other clarifying shampoos.

It, however, being a clarifying shampoo will lighten or entirely remove your hair color so take a not of that. Plus if you are a member of the oily hair family then this shampoo will keep the oil at bay very effectively.

Overall, I love using this shampoo twice a month to remove all the buildup of the products that I have used over these two weeks so I don’t damage my hair and leave it healthy.


  • Travel free packaging
  • Removes build-up well
  • Removes flakes effectively
  • Lightens hair color over time
  • Keeps oil at bay


  • A lot pricey
  • Not that easy to find in local stores
  • Don’t use it too often if you have dry hair, being a clarifying shampoo, it will dry your hair to a certain extent

A good shampoo that removes build-up effectively. But its a bit on the pricey side.

Where To Buy Neutrogena Anti Residue Shampoo In India?

I got mine from Amazon.


Keep in mind it is meant to deep clean and removes all the oil, so it removes your natural oil too. So always condition your hair after using any clarifying shampoo.

Yay or Nay?


Because it is one of the best clarifying shampoos I have used. But the only downside which is a big one is that it is way too overpriced. If the price is not an issue for you, then definitely consider buying it. This shampoo is definitely worth to get a place in your bathroom shelf.
