No doubt you’ve noticed at some point or another that your hair just feels a bit meh! Doesn’t matter what you do, nothing seems to quite cut the mustard to tame your unruly mane or make it shine like it used to. In hopes to revive your locks you try another shampoo, but after a while the same thing happens. The chances are your hair and scalp need a little bit of a deeper cleanse - a reset to get its mojo back. Ever thought about a clarifying shampoo or scalp scrub? Probably not, but here’s why you should!
Clarifying, purifying, detox are key adjectives you should look for when picking a shampoo or scrub to give your hair and scalp a deeper cleanse. Essentially you are trying to remove all kinds of stuff that builds up in your hair causing it to feel greasy, weighed down, unmanageable and lacklustre. If you are prone to over doing the dry shampoo for those extra minutes in bed or using hairsprays and styling products to keep you mop under control, it’s probably creating build-up - even hard water can have repercussions on making your shampoo less effective. The formulations within a clarifying shampoo are different than regular shampoos as they help to revive and refresh by removing those deposits, restoring your hair's shine, softness, and manageability.
But don’t worry, we have selected some of our top clarifying and purifying products to help you get back on your hair game!
