How to get rid of product buildup in your hair

posted 07.02.2018

Have you experienced weighed down hair that feels dull and dry?  It may be caused by product build-up, contaminants in the environment, sweat, and dirt. If you try to remove dirt and product build-up with regular shampoo, it may not be enough. Luckily, you can fully cleanse your hair by using a clarifying shampoo to thoroughly remove dirt and product build-up.

What is a Clarifying Shampoo?

A clarifying shampoo is a hair cleanser that cleans deeper than a regular shampoo. Clarifying shampoos are often called detoxifying” shampoos, or “ purifying” shampoos, and by using them, you can get a fresh start for cleaner, healthier hair. Many clarifying shampoos contain special ingredients that help to lift dirt and debris from the hair so that you can rinse it away.

Normal shampoos cleanse your hair, too, but they aren’t designed to deep-clean your hair. Instead, they clean your hair while also depositing conditioners and other ingredients. These shampoos work well for your everyday routine, but occasionally deep cleaning your hair can help to remove the build-up and give you a fresh start in your hair care routine.

Why Should You Use a Clarifying Shampoo?

If you have noticed that your conditioning and styling products don’t seem as effective, or if you have noticed that your hair seems dry and stiff, you may need to use a clarifying shampoo. When your hair has product build-up, your normal products can’t penetrate your hair strand to work effectively.

When you use products like hair gels, they tend to create product build-up over time. The tap water from the faucet can also lead to mineral deposit that cause dry, hard hair. Thankfully, clarifying shampoos help to deep cleanse your hair.

You can also use a clarifying shampoo before you do a deep conditioning treatment or hair mask. A clarifying shampoo is a great way to prepare your hair for a deep conditioning treatment. By removing any product build up, dirt, or mineral deposits, the conditioning treatment can penetrate the hair strands better.

Even if you haven’t yet noticed any hair care issues, it’s good to incorporate a clarifying shampoo into your hair care regimen to use on occasion to keep your hair thoroughly cleansed and refreshed. After you use a clarifying shampoo, you may notice that your hair is bouncier, feels lighter, and that your scalp is cleaner.

How Do You Use a Clarifying Shampoo?

It’s easy to use a clarifying shampoo. Thoroughly wet your hair as you normally would. Next, take a small amount of the clarifying shampoo and apply it to your scalp and hair, working the product in and allowing it to loosen up the dirt and debris from your hair. Lastly, rinse thoroughly.

Next Steps After Using a Clarifying Shampoo

After you use a clarifying shampoo, you will notice that your hair feels much cleaner than usual. It’s important that you apply conditioner to your hair after you cleanse, and then you can style your hair as your normally would. Enjoy freshly cleansed and conditioned hair!
