Is It Time to Clarify?

Do you know when it’s time to use clarifying shampoo?

Experts in the hair industry once advised against clarifying, citing the cleanser strips hair of natural oils that protect the hair along with product buildup. Today, clarifying shampoo is coming back into the hair care fold as an ally to healthy hair. Since clarifying shampoos are not intended for daily use, it is important to pay attention to your hair to notice when it’s best to use the product. Below are the top instances when clarifying shampoo could save your hair’s life:

If your hair lacks shine…

Unless you have a very, very tight curl pattern (like me), your hair should have some shine to it. One sure sign of product build-up is when your locks look dull no matter how many shine boosting products you use. Using products that contain heavy waxes, silicones and polymers will inevitably create layers of build-up over time. Clarifying on a monthly basis will help you keep product build-up in check.

If your products “don’t work” anymore…

When you first started using your favorite products you could really see the benefits. Nowadays, you are using more products with less noticeable improvement. This is another sign of product buildup. Check the ingredients on your products- especially products used on a frequent basis. If they contain silicone and/or waxes, you will need to clarify periodically to achieve optimum product performance.

If you experience strange changes in hair color…

Swimming is a great way to stay healthy and fit. If you do it regularly you will see the adverse effects salt and/or chlorine have on your locks. Indoor plumbing with well or hard water could have a similar effect due to the high content of minerals in the water. It is important to remove harsh deposits from your hair ASAP to minimize the drying effect. If swimming is a part of your normal fitness routine, alternate between your normal shampoo and a clarifying cleanser to remove impurities that could make your hair look neglected. You will notice the color will improve as will manageability.
