I know the first question is, why is a women reviewing a men's shampoo? Well since it's in my house I've actually ended up using the Axe Deglue Shampoo a few times. My husband originally purchased the Axe Shampoo when my middle son had some serious cradle crud going. The Axe Deglue Shampoo promises to strip out all of the product men may use during the day. Also on my husband's agenda is stripping any paint that may land in his hair during a day of work. Effectiveness The entire premise of the deglue shampoo is to strip out the product used to create a pretty boy look. The shampoo has small beads included in the formula which helps exfoliate the scalp and hair to really scrub out the goo. I have used the shampoo a few times especially when I hair had an extra build up of oil in my hair. The does certainly strip hair of what ever may be on it, including the essential oils it needs to be healthy. Hair will definitely be dry after using the Axe Deglue so a moisturizer needs to be used afterward. Scent The DeGlue shampoo is a manly shampoo, meaning it is made with the musk-y scent for men instead of a fruity or flowery you normally get in a shampoo. Having said that, the scent is strong and lasts for quite a while. Occasionally the boys will want to use this shampoo to "smell like daddy" and I can smell it long after they have been washed.
