Dear Curly Suzy: I was recently reading about clarifying for the shampoo free method.. and well, with my last purchase I bought the Elucence moisture conditioner and shampoo. Is that shampoo OK for clarifying?
Dear Jeannie: The Elucence Moisture Balancing Shampoo isn’t really a clarifying shampoo. It is a great cleanser but will not remove huge amounts of build up.
Here are some clarifying shampoos that we carry:
- Carol’s Daughter Rosemary Mint Purifying Shampoo
- CURLS Pure Curls Clarifying Shampoo
- Elucence Volume Clarifying Shampoo
- Hair Rules Aloe Grapefruit Purifying Shampoo
You can also do an apple cider vinegar rinse. Rinsing with apple cider vinegar will help balance the pH of your hair and remove the buildup. Here is a recipe:
Mix 1 tablespoon (15 ml”> of apple cider vinegar into 1 cup (250 ml”> of warm filtered tap water. After shampooing you can rinse with this.
