Nexxus Aloe Rid Review


Nexxus Aloe Rid Gentle Clarifying Shampoo is Nexxus’ follow up to the widely popular Aloe Rid Old Style which is now produced by This newer shampoo is still used by some people as part of the Macujo Method or Jerry G Method to help beat a hair drug test. It is less propular and possibly less effective than Ultra Clean by Zydot and High Voltage Folli-Cleanse.

Aloe Rid Gentle Clarifying Shampoo is a popular hair detox product from Nexxus.  It is an example of a prominent detox shampoo in the weed detoxing community.  Many users have employed Nexxus Aloe Rid in an effort to beat a hair follicle drug test.  You might need to detox if you’ve been given a test for legal reasons or by a prospective employer for example.  You should be aware that it is against the law in some U.S. states to detox in an attempt to pass a drug test.  So make sure to do your research before delving into a detox regimen such as with Nexxus Aloe Rid.  It’s important that you find the right product for you.  Those who smoke more often and in higher quantities and those with a higher body mass will need a stronger product for example.


Several ingredients may provide a detoxification effect. EDTA is an ingredient known to chelate metals. This ingredient could help get some of the drug residues out of the hair shaft. Propylene glycol can also be used as a solvent to dissolve drug residues.

How to Use Nexxus Aloe Rid

The most common uses

This shampoo can be used like your usual shampoo, washing several times to try to get drug residues from the hair. It can also be used as part of the Macujo Method. We will explain the Macujo method in the next section. Here is how the average person uses Nexxus Aloe Rid:

  1. First you need to be abstinent from any drug use. Ask your doctor if you will need a waiver for prescribed medications. Be sure to ask the testing center if any of your medications will cause a positive reading and if these medications will disqualify you.
  2. Some users will wash their hair up to 4 times everyday for ten days leading up to the test.
  3. Be sure to wash all of your hair utensils as they may be contaminated with old hair holding drug residues. Good luck. Go take your test.

Macujo Method

The Macujo Method is one of the most popular methods online. This method has some risky components. It is variously called the Macujo method and sometimes the Maccjujo method. Users claim they have succeeded in testing negative for a hair drug test with this method. Studies show that the amount of damage done to the hair was positively correlated with the amont of drug residues leaving the hair. The Macujo method is designed to damage the hair shaft and remove drug residues. The components of this method have several solvents to try to dissolve the drugs. This includes salycilic acid. It also has a strong base, baking soda, which may also neutralize acidic drugs, causing them to leak from the hair shaft or become undetectable. Only the first 1.5 inches of hair coming from the hair shaft will be tested so all detox methods should be focused on this section of the hair. Users use this method especially when they only have a day or two of notice. This method will damage the hair but you can’t make an omlet without breaking some eggs. We are not recommending a method but we will describe how people are using it. Many users have claimed to have gotten positive results. Make sure it is worth the damage that you will do to your hair. There are ingredients in this method which can damage the scalp. If you get pain in your hair, you should consider stopping and choosing a safer method like the Jerry G. Method.

Required Equipment

  • Zydot Ultra Clean shampoo
  • Sink
  • Shower cap

Nexxus Aloe Rid Instructions as used with the Macujo Method

  1. The first thing to do is thoroughly rinse your hair with water down through your roots.
  2. Now add vinegar to the hair, especially the roots. This is a strong acid which may dissolve drug residues.
  3. Now add the Pink Clean and Clear. Put on your shower cap. Leave the mixture in your head for 30 minutes. The Pink Clean and Clear is an astringent which will remove the oils from the hair which are holding the drug residues in. The vinegar is a solvent which may dissolve some of the drug residues.
  4. Rinse your hair.
  5. Now shampoo your hair with Aloe Rid.
  6. Now add a drop of tide detergent to your hair. This contains proteases that break down proteins. So now you have broken through the layer of oil, now you are breaking down the proteins in your hair.
  7. Rinse well down to the roots.
  8. Shampoo with Nexxus Aloe Rid again. Rinse.
  9. Now shampoo with Zydot. Follow the instructions on the box.
  10. You can do this 3 times on test day.

Terms of Product Use

We have not been able to verify that Nexxus even produces or sells Aloe Rid anymore. The bottles on the market may be old product. They do have another product which may be used for weed detox. It is called Nexxus Clean & Pure Nourishing Detox Shampoo.


  • Methosylsothiazolinone
  • Sodim benzoate
  • Tetrasodium EDTA
  • Sodium Sulfate
  • Tocopheryl acetate
  • Coconut Oil
  • Ascorbic acid
  • Wheat protein
  • Hydrolyzed Elastin
  • Sodium Chloride
  • Water

Some of these ingredients may be able to dissolve drug residues. EDTA is a metal chealator which may remove some drugs from the hair. The brand that Nexxus still sells is not overtly marketed for detoxing drugs from the hair.

Is it safe?
Using Nexxus Aloe Rid for THC Detox is safe when you use it as a standalone shampoo. Nexxus Clean and Pure Nourishing Detox Shampoo is also safe when used alone like a normal shampoo.  If you use the Macujo Method, there is possible damage being done to the hair. It can also damage the scalp. You can place petroleum jelly around the hairline to protect the skin from harsh ingredients when you do the Macujo Method. You can also use one of Nexxus’ shampoos as one of your shampoos in the Jerry G. Method. This method is possibly safer and more effective. It simply requires bleaching and dyeing your hair. Attempting a hair detox method can be dangerous for anyone 18 or younger or who may be nursing or pregnant. Check all ingredients and be sure you are not allergic to them in order to increase your level of security.

To Pass a Hair Follicle Test

It is without parabens, silicones, or dyes which can contaminate hair or casue allergic reactions. However, this shampoo is not often used for hair detox by regular smokers who are regularly tested. This shampoo also has no studies as a drug detoxshampoo. However, Nexxus does have high tech laboratories where they test their shampoos. It likely has some detox ability. It is much cheaper than Old Style Toxin Rd now sold by

Our rating: 4/5 (B rating)

There are two detox shampoos to get the best results on hair testing, High Voltage Folli-Cleanse and Ultra Clean by Zydot. These both have scientific studies showing their effectiveness. Using Nexxus Aloe Rid to pass drug a test is likely done out of confusing it with Old Style Aloe Rid.  Instead, get the proven detox shampoos and use this as a replacement if you can buy it at a normal price. If not, just get Nexxus Clean and Pure Nourishing Detox shampoo for about $ 20. Good Luck!
