6 Great Clarifying Shampoos

Most of my clients don’t think to use a clarifying shampoo on a somewhat regular basis.

I think part of that may be because shampoo has been getting quite a bad reputation these days, but it also may be because they don’t know the difference between a clarifying shampoo and a regular shampoo.

Clarifying shampoos are formulated to work a little harder than standard shampoos to get product residue, or anything else that builds on your hair, off. They can be slightly drying, so it’s not a bad idea to finish up a clarifying treatment with your most hydrating conditioner.

Most women don’t need to clarify more than once a month, or on an “as needed” basis. Your hair may feel a little limp on the day you clarify since it’s going to be super clean, but it should return to normal very quickly.

I’ve rounded up a few great clarifying shampoos to look into. I don’t necessarily think this is the type of product that you need to spend big bucks on, but find one that cleans your hair without making it feel like straw.
