All about Clarifying Shampoos

Happy Hump Day Naturalistas!!! Let’s talk a little about Clarifying  shampoos

Clarifying shampoos often get a bad reputation because they are very drying of our natural hair. Clarifying shampoos really just get rid of the various styling and finishing products that we use daily from our hair. I would say that you should not use a clarifying shampoo all the time but, once every so often is needed. Clarifying shampoos are used to rid your hair of residue and dirt, and focus on cleansing the hair and scalp.

When you should use a clarifying shampoo:

You should use a clarifying shampoo if your hair is oily, if you have been using lots of oils, heavy conditioners, and various products.You should also use a clarifying shampoo if you have been swimming a lot. Also, I have had some naturalistas tell me that none of their products are working for them, this maybe a time to use a clarifying shampoo as well. If none of your products are working you may have build up on your hair and this may cause your products to stop working.  So try a clarifying shampoo to remove the build up from your hair. You should understand that clarifying shampoos do not condition hair and must be used no more than twice a week to achieve the best results.

It is important DO NOT OVERUSE clarifying shampoos for the health of your hair. If your hair is not dirty or very oily, clarifying shampoos will strip your hair and leave it feeling very brittle and dry. So make sure you condition, condition, and condition after using a clarifying shampoo! 🙂 Here are ten clarifying shampoos I found .. .(DISCLAIMER: Please note I have not tried any of these yet!!!! )
