Wondering if you need a clarifying shampoo? Then this is the Number 4 blog for you. We’ll be covering the what and why of this hard-working haircare essential, including when and how to use one.
How do you know if you need a clarifying shampoo?
If your hair is feeling unruly, weighed down with residue from products you’ve used during the week or it’s tangled and difficult to comb through, chances are you need a clarifying shampoo.
If your mane is feeling a bit crispy from chlorine, chemicals and coloring, it’s time to get clarifying.
What is a clarifying shampoo?
Like a regular shampoo but on steroids, a clarifying shampoo performs a deep clean.
The result? Light, fresh and vibrant locks, returned to their former lustrous glory. It’s like starting anew. Providing your hair with a detox so to speak.
Side note for regular swimmers…N4’s Clarifying Shampoo works wonders to safely remove any nasty green tinge from regular chlorine exposure. It’s the perfect sulfate free shampoo for water babies.
How often should I use a clarifying shampoo?
While regular shampoos and conditioners do a great job of keeping hair shiny and manageable throughout the week, especially if you use a high performance hair care range, sometimes you want to achieve a squeaky clean vibe scalp. For that, a paraben free clarifying shampoo is your hair’s best friend.
If you regularly use styling products to tame your tresses, or you have particularly dry and coarse hair and over condition, then you’re likely to experience a build-up of product residue.
While a double to triple rinse with your favorite N4 professional style shampoo and conditioner might do the trick, for real results, turn to our clarifying shampoo.
Traditional shampoos and conditioners are absolutely fine to keep your hair clean and glossy throughout the week, but sometimes you just need that deep clean that reinvigorates your locks and freshens up your scalp that only a purposeful clarifying shampoo can deliver.
How do I know that it’s time to use a clarifying shampoo?
Other tell tale signs include symptoms like extra greasy roots even after you’ve washed your hair or feeling like there’s still a film-like residue coating your hair even when it’s clean.
Maybe you’ve noticed that your curls aren’t holding their usual bounce and definition? Or perhaps your scalp is flaky?
If so, these are all signs from your hair that it’s time to clarify.
Can you use clarifying shampoo daily?
Dah-ling, with the N4 Clarifying Shampoo yes!
It’s strong enough to remove built-up product yet gentle enough to be used daily.
Even better still, it’s also sodium chloride and sulfate free, unlike many harsher clarifying shampoos out there, so not only will it no strip essential moisture, it will also help maintain your color.
How does a clarifying shampoo work?
It works by removing excessive build up left behind by your favorite styling products as well as harsh water minerals, air pollutants and chlorine. It also gently yet effectively strips out that waxy, film-like residue of leave-in products. Let’s face it. Time is short and many of us are guilty of taking regular short-cuts when it comes to our hair, skin and make-up routines. Leave-ins are just so convenient. However, they can contribute to unwanted bacteria on your scalp.
So what are the 3 main benefits of a clarifying shampoo?
In a nutshell, we’d summarize the key benefits as being:
- Removes product build-up on the scalp and hair
- Detoxes and resets your hair back to square one
- Removes chlorine explore discoloration
