I need to start from square one, and just realized that my clarifying poo has polyquats. I don't know if that's the source of any of my issues, but I figure if I'm going to clarify, I might as well see if polyquats are a contributing factor. I plan to do a PT and DT tonight so I need to be able to pick the poo up at the grocery store tonight. Thanks!

For a more gentle clarifier, what about Yes to Blueberries?

For harsh clarifiers:

How about the Neutrogena shampoo- anti residue formula?

Thanks Chloe! If I understand correctly, you need a sulfate to remove polyquats so the Yes to Blueberries won't do the trick, but the other two will.

Thanks. Is it EDTA that removes mineral buildup? Or is that something else?

Make sure that whatever shampoo you use says clarifying on it. According to my natural stylist, the clarifying poo is different than a regular poo. If you get a regular poo, it won't clarify your scalp because chemically that's not what a regular poo is designed to do. So yes to blueberries won't work but the suave poo & the Giovanni clarifying poo will get the job done. That's what my stylist recommended to me.

There is nothing that will build up in the Yes to Blueberries and the second ingredient is a a sulphate surfactant so I strongly suspect it will clarify just fine. Having said that I'd choose the Giovanni because it's sulphate free and low on anionics.

Why would a scalp need clarifying? Scalp sheds skin cells all the time anyway so is not likely to suffer product build up as hair can. Scalps can get sebum or skin cell build up if there is a sensitivity or skin disorder, but harsh commercial shampoos are not the solution to that, they are likely to worsen the problem.

A quick Google search revealed that Polyquaternium-10 is easily soluble in water. Some polyquats will build up, but not this one.

Thanks everyone. I ended up getting the Giovanni clarifying poo. Tonight I am clarifying then doing a PT and a DT. Tomorrow I am going to try out conditioner only styling since everything else I own has polyquats and/or humectants.
