I used to have pretty bad back-acne, and my naturopathic doctor recommended I stop using creme-rinse (conditioner), and recommended this stuff by name. I really didn't want to stop using conditioner, because I thought my hair would fry, but I sucked it up and tried it anyways. With daily use, my hair was kinda dry and felt different...but back-acne cleared up in the end, and I probably spend less now on hair-care than I used to because I use less product and wash my hair every other day instead of daily, to avoid over-drying. I recommend you stick with it, and if you experience drying, just try washing your hair a bit less often. Now that I've been using it for a couple of years, and my hair is used to the radical change (from daily washing with conditioner), it works like a charm - I have hair down to the middle of my back and it is extremely healthy, even without using conditioner or ANY other products, although it probably helps that I only comb out my hair once every two days, right after I wash it (I recommend this tip to you if you have ANY kind of hair; I had no IDEA how much it helps), and never blow-dry or straighten. Another cool tip: I like to put a bit of essential oil into the shampoo to give my hair a scent of my own choosing (lavender, usually - good for hair and the soul. :) )

My only concern with DHS is whether it's animal-tested, and also I don't really know where some of the ingredients come from/how natural they are...I'm an environmental studies student, ergo I worry about that kind of thing. Thus, one star gets knocked off my rating.

I bought this on the advice of my dermatologist. It does not seem to dry out my scalp or hands too much but it dries the life out of my hair. I have tried watering it down to nothing but it does not matter.I have added glycerin and that helped a little. It is the most damaging drying shampoo I have ever used. That said I am not allergic to it which was why I bought it in the first place.
I am really bummed because I have had a ginormous problem finding a shampoo that agrees with me.
The rinse that accompanies this product is not any good.
I see all the other great reviews and wonder why i seem to be one of the few that has a problem with this shampoo

      Comments about DHS Clear Shampoo for Daily Cleaning of Hair & Scalp, Fragrance Free, 8 fl oz:

      I have to use fragrance free products. This fills the bill. It works really well and cleans my hair. I've only been using it a few weeks. My hair looks just as good with this product as it did with my regular shampoos. I will buy this again. Thanks to drugstore.com for carrying fragrance free products. They are hard to find!

      Comments about DHS Clear Shampoo for Daily Cleaning of Hair & Scalp, Fragrance Free, 8 fl oz:

      I wasn't sure what to expect with this shampoo and I'll have to admit the smell is rather off putting. Hence the 3 stars. It smells sort of like glue or plastic, yet not so strong that I wouldn't still use it. It is a great no frills shampoo. On sale here is a great price. I use it 1-2 x per week. I only wash my hair 2x per week, occasionally 3 if really needed. It is gentle on my scalp and doesn't cause itchy or dry scalp. I have not found it to be drying to my hair at all. I could see if used more often that it likely could be though. It leaves my hair shiny with bouncy, soft volume. Recently I started using Aveeno Moisturizing Bar for Dry Skin as a pre-wash for extra dry/itchy scalp care and I'm not sure why, but these products work so well together. The shampoo worked much better after I began using the Aveeno bar as a pre-wash. I would definitely buy this again. If I could change one thing it would be the smell. However, it doesn't linger at all on your hair. It dissipates as soon you lather it into your hair.

      Comments about DHS Clear Shampoo for Daily Cleaning of Hair & Scalp, Fragrance Free, 8 fl oz:

      I have very sensitive skin, so try to buy shampoos and conditioners that are gentle, fragrance free, and with no artificial colors. This shampoo meets all these criteria, but has a drying effect on my hair, which causes it to be brittle and to appear fly-away. I haven't found a shampoo that is gentle enough but that doesn't dry out my hair.

          This shampoo is wonderful and is the best no fragrance shampoo I have ever used. I can not tolerate ANY fragrance and this product has none. It lathers like I want and leaves my hair clean. I use it every day. One time Drugstore.com quit carrying it for a while and I was so upset. Thankfully, they brought the product back a few months later and I hope they continue to keep it.

                  I have a lot of allergies and found this shampoo to be the best fragrance-free shampoo out there. I have tried a lot that are either expensive, don't cleanse well or that still aggravate my allergies. This does cleanse my hair and scalp well.

                    I have sensitive skin and scalp and use DHS shampoo because it's fragrance and dye free. It is not drying, and leaves my hair in good condition; I don't even have to use a conditioner. I take it with me to the hairdresser's whenever I have a haircut, and even my hairdressers have commented that it is a good shampoo. I don't use it every day; just two or three times a week.

                        I recently found out I'm allergic to "fragrance mix," which goes by several names and was in my shampoo, conditioner, & gel. My dermatologist recommended Free & Clear products, which totally dried my hair out. Encouraged by the positive reviews, I gave DHS a try. The only advantage over F&C is that it produces some lather. Otherwise, it leaves my hair tangled, brittle, utterly lacking in volume & shine, and full of static. And I've only been using it every other day--not daily, as the label suggests. Another disaster.
