Is clarifying shampoo good for your hair? Clarifying shampoos have had the reputation for snatching every ounce of oil (even natural oil) from the hair, but not all clarifying shampoos are created equally. Contrary to what’s been said before, curls, coils, and tight textures benefit from clarifying shampoo, too! Allow your curly hair to speak for itself. Recognize the beauty in your natural hair type by treating your strands to a curl cleansing shampoo, regularly. Here are five (5) benefits of clarifying shampoo for natural hair for you to better understand why using clarifying shampoo for curly hair is an absolute must:
1. Rejuvenate the Scalp -The accumulation of the scalp's own natural oils, hair product residue, dead skin cells, and sweat are what we know as buildup. Scalp build up will show up as itching, inflammation, flaking, and/or film on the scalp.
Incorporating a curl clarifying shampoo with an ingredient such as aloe vera into your hair care regimen (around every three washes) will keep buildup in the rearview and improve the condition of your scalp. Indulge the scalp with a natural hair serum 2-3 times p/week to rejuvenate and promote scalp health. Clarifying shampoo can help eliminate an itchy scalp and promote healthy hair growth for any hair type.
2. Improve Definition - Every now and then, we may experience limp curls, due to the weight from product buildup. Clarifying shampoos wash away residuals from products and other impurities that can weigh down your damaged hair. This gentle clarifying shampoo has natural ingredients like essential oils that help to reset and restore definition!

3. Revive Dull Hair - When hard water, pollutants, and hair product, such as dry shampoo and hairspray, builds up on the strands they make the hair look dull. Unlike regular shampoo, clarifying shampoo will remove the residue, exposing the hair's true luster and shine.
5. Optimize Deep Conditioning - Experiencing the maximum benefits of your curly hair treatments are more likely upon the removal of stubborn mineral build up with clarifying shampoo. It enables the treatment's moisturizing ingredients and the natural essential oil to penetrate more effectively. Now it's time to treat yourself to a paraben-free deep conditioner and revive your natural hair.
