Is it okay to use a sulfate shampoo to clarify once a month?
Yep! You can even use it more often if your hair needs it & tolerates it. Remember, not all sulfate shampoos are the same, experiment until you find one that cleans your hair without stripping it. You'll know you've found a good match when you use it, you "almost" get the same results as when you use your regular non-sulfate shampoo.Another idea to consider is clarifying other products, like Apple Cider Vinegar or Baking Soda/Water paste. You also can add both of these to your regular non-sulfate shampoo or co-wash to create a gentle clarifying shampoo. Experiment to see what works for you.
