While my regular shampoo does a pretty good job of ridding said buildup, I always reach for a detox shampoo to really get a good deep clean just one day a week.
What is a clarifying or detox shampoo?
Well its a shampoo with more gusto than typical shampoos, meaning it has more intense detergent designed to really break down everything clinging to the hair and scalp, and then wash that gunk away. They can be drying however because of the stronger ingredients, so only use them sparingly for best results.
How do you use a detox shampoo?
Pick one day per week to really focus on a deep cleanse in the shower, and replace your regular shampoo with the detox version. You may need to wash twice if you've got major buildup, and focus on the root area only. Be sure you rinse the hair very well, and follow up with a large helping of conditioner (on the ends only, not the scalp) to replenish lost moisture.
What will the results be?
Your hair will be lighter and bouncier, less weighed down, and your color will be brighter too!
Here are a few of my recommended detox shampoos:
- Unite Weekender Shampoo
- Hair Food Strawberry Clarifying Shampoo
- Fredrick Fakkai Apple Cider Clarifying Shampoo
