How often should I clarify?
I alternate between cowashing (Eden bodyworks) & shampooing (SM super fruit complex) every week, so I end up cowashing about 2x a month & shampooing about 2x a month . I'm not sure if I should do the standard 1x a month clarify or if that'll be too much for my hair?
It depends on which products you use, if you oil your scalp, sebum production, scalp sensitivity etc. Honestly, whenever my scalp feels gloopy then it's time for a good cleansing. You don't want to over clarify and strip your scalp repeatedly until you develop problems. Maybe once a month is good or you can stretch it out a little longer
i prefer to clean the scalp once a week in order for you to keep it free of buildup that could result in dry or oily scalp. we clean our entire body daily or even twice a week for a reason. you can rinse and condition your hair as much as you want/need as long as you're using curl friendly products. cleansing varies per person. if you think your scalp smells funky, give it a good wash. my blog would be helpful for you to read ShaiAmiel.tumblr.com
as needed . Some people sweat more than others , some people use a lot of products on thair hair , some people live in hotter climate . Use good judgment and you'll know natural when its time . If you're not sure always ask a professional stylist . Good luck !
