What is the difference between a clarifying shampoo and a regular shampoo?
Clarifying Shampoos are formulated to purge your hair and scalp of any excess build-up (of hair products, hard water minerals, chlorine, and more), which can leave your hair feeling dull, greasy, or limp. As a result, they generally have a higher concentration of surfactants, the soap-like ingredient responsible for cleansing and clarifying your hair.
How often can I use a clarifying shampoo?
We generally recommend using our clarifying shampoo no more than once per week, but it really depends on what your hair goes through on a daily basis. For instance, if you use a lot of hair styling products, have hard water, or swim in chlorinated pools, you may need to use a clarifying shampoo more frequently. The same goes for infrequent hair washers or those with more significant oil buildup.
At the end of the day, our biggest advice is to listen to what your hair and scalp are telling you. Check out this post on our blog for more tips and tricks.
