3 comments by Brianna Thompson
Want silky, soft, shiny hair? Clarifying or "detoxing," your hair is an important step to get the results. Clarifying your hair can help to remove product buildup, dirt, and oils that can weigh down your hair and make it look dull. It can also help to restore shine and manageability to your hair. In this blog, I will discuss why it is important to clarify your hair, the benefits of clarifying your hair, the different types of clarifying products available, and how to properly clarify your hair.

What is Clarifying?


Clarifying is a process of deep cleaning the hair and scalp. It involves using a clarifying shampoo or other clarifying product to remove dirt, oils, product buildup, and other impurities from the hair and scalp. Breaking down any buildup will help the follicles promote hair growth, and overall healthy hair. Clarifying products can also include other types of cleansers such as clay masks, apple cider vinegar rinses, and scalp detox treatments.

Benefits of Clarifying/ DETOXING

Clarifying your hair can have many benefits. It can help to remove product buildup, dirt, and oils that can weigh down your hair and make it look dull. It can also help to restore shine and manageability to your hair. Clarifying can also help to reduce frizz and make styling easier. Additionally, it can help to prevent scalp conditions such as dandruff and itchy scalp.
