Perhaps no time is more relevant than the winter holidays to celebrate this iconic shampoo as consumers look forward to a month of festivities, parties and up-dos. However, perfecting holiday looks takes styling that can add 10 weeks-worth of residue to hair, leaving it looking lifeless and dull.

Clinically proven to instantly remove 90% of dulling residue left by shampoos, conditioners and styling products, Neutrogena® Anti-Residue Shampoo has been trusted by consumers and editors to help restore men and women's hair's manageability, luster, bounce and volume that are depleted after using excessive styling products.

"A lot of girls don't realize that regular use of their favorite shampoo, conditioner and other styling products leave a residue on their hair which prevents it from being really shiny," said Neutrogena Brand Ambassador Vanessa Hudgens. "That's why I use an anti-residue shampoo like Neutrogena's to bring back the natural shine to my hair."

Recently honored with a 2010 Allure Best of Beauty Award, Neutrogena® Anti-Residue Shampoo has been removing dulling residue for over three decades.  With 30 years of hair care innovation since the launch of the shampoo, Neutrogena returned to the labs to reexamine the classic formula's ability to remove residue left from today's shampoos, conditioners and styling products. 

In clinical tests, after hair tresses were processed with various combinations of styling products, they were analyzed to determine how much residue was removed. Hair fibers were stained and observed using fluorescence microscopy- which showed residue via a glowing light. After treatment with Neutrogena® Anti-Residue Shampoo, hair fibers were again observed and showed significantly less red - removing 90% of the dulling residue and leaving hair clean, shiny and looking its healthiest.
