What is a good clarifying shampoo for 4a hairtype? I need something that will lift off product buildup.

Thanks

Hmm. I really don't think what kind of clarifier will work best for someone has anything to do with curl type. We all have to get rid of buildup. It is a matter of how often and what your individual hair likes/dislikes. I think you should do a search. I'm sure this thread has been done before.
I only use clarifying shampoos and I have to remove buildup once a week because my hair is fine. I like TJ tea trea tingle.
Precious Curls likes this.

I only use a clarifying poo when I've been using cone heavy products or my hair has that waxy build up feeling. Bobeam's poo bars are nice but I don't use them to clarify and remove silicone buildup. For cone and waxy build up I use my trusty IC Tea Shampoo or Creme of Nature Shampoo...they both strip my hair BUT then I follow with a super moisturizing DC like B.A.S.K Yam Nectar and I'm good to go.

...i'm supersonic

I haven't found one that I like for my natural hair yet. When I had a relaxer, I used a clarifying shampoo once a month and I ALWAYS did a deep conditioning treatment following the use of a clarifying shampoo.

I like Giovanni's 50:50 Shampoo. I get it from Walmart for about $7. Even though it's sulfate free it suds ridiculously easily, leaves my scalp feeling fresh, and it has a slightly strippy feeling...but at the same time it doesn't? I don't really care, I follow up with the smooth as silk conditioner and my hair feels like cashmere. Lol.

I like Elucence's Clarifying shampoo. It does the job for me. Also, apple cider vinegar and water after shampooing with my normal shampoo gets the build-up off of my hair.

After much trial and error I've discovered my hair likes the Trader Joe's Tea Tree Tingle Shampoo. I use it once a week to remove buildup from products with 'cones or to remove that waxy feeling from styling products that contain beeswax. I always follow with a deep treatment though.

Every other month I use my Terressentials Lavender Mudwash to do a mini 'detox'. My hair always behaves better afterwards.

I use KCCC as well, but I dilute it with filtered watered. 2 parts water, 1 part shampoo.
