What is clarifying?
Clarifying is a process that helps remove all oils, dirt, and products out of your hair.
When you notice your hair feels weighed down, very greasy, and notice product residue. It's time to clarify your hair.
How often should I clarify?
I typically clarify N's hair once a month. I use gel, moisturizer, and oils, almost daily in her hair. For those who may have hard water, frequent swimmers, or use a ton of products, you may need to do this more often.
How to clarify your hair
I use a regular cheap shampoo to clarify. I make sure that the shampoo has sulfate (this strips the hair.) The shampoo from Suave, Pantene, or Garnier are typically the brands I use. I shampoo like usual, but I make sure to do a deep conditioning treatment afterwards to help restore moisture back into the hair.
