Speed Review: Paul Mitchell Clarifying Shampoo Three

Believe it or not, I don't think that I have ever previously reviewed a Paul Mitchell product here on Skin Deep. Clarifying shampoo isn't a product that I switch up that often as I tend to stick with a bottle until it's finished, and given that I only use a clarifying shampoo once a week (as part of my Sunday pampering routine, followed by a hair mask), it takes a while to finish a bottle! 

Paul Mitchell offer a couple of clarifying shampoos- one is aimed at oily hair whereas this one, called Shampoo Three, is designed to remove chlorine (including helping to prevent swimmers "chlorine green" tint), iron and minerals. The company claims that it removes dulling build up from hair, strengthens strands and minimises future build up. 

On first impressions, I liked the sleek, modern bottle. The packaging and the name both reiterate the salon branding and its clearly marked as a clarifying shampoo. I'd have preferred if the packaging was transparent in order to tell how much product was remaining. 

The directions were clear and easy to follow. I was surprised to note that it can be used daily, unusual for a clarifying shampoo. This gave me the expectation that it would be a gentle shampoo. The bottle has a functional flip top dispenser. 

Paul Mitchell Clarifying Shampoo Three is a thick, clear gel with a subtle green tint. It didn't have much of a fragrance to speak of- it simply smelt fresh & clean. I wasn't able to detect any scent in my hair once it had been dried and styled. 

Paul Mitchell Clarifying Shampoo Three produces a generous lather, which means that a little goes a long way. Inherently for a shampoo, I found it easy to rinse out. 

Following use, my hair felt wonderfully clean. I was impressed that the Clarifying Shampoo didn't irritate my sensitive scalp. Overall, I was impressed with Paul Mitchell Clarifying Shampoo Three and would recommend it. I also feel that it offers good value for money and like that it is available in a range of sizes, starting at £5.50 for 100ml.



  1. Paul Mitchell really works, best shampoo for those who get oil in hair even after daily shower.

  2. My hair secrete a lot of oil each day, tired of showering the hair daily, which can even damage my hair. Happy by reading this post and by finding such a product. Hope it will work well.
