What is a clarifying shampoo?

A clarifying shampoo is a deep-cleansing hair product designed to remove buildup, residues, and impurities from your hair and scalp. Clarifying shampoos are meant to supplement your typical hair-washing routine when your strands or scalp could use a little extra care or cleansing.

What is the difference between a clarifying and a regular shampoo?

Clarifying shampoos are formulated with stronger cleansing agents to remove buildup, residues, and impurities from the hair and scalp.Regular shampoos are milder and intended for regular use to clean the hair without stripping away too much natural oil. 


Clarifying shampoos are typically used periodically for deep cleansing, while regular shampoos are used more frequently for routine hair washing. Further, clarifying shampoos are designed to remove excess product buildup that might be left behind from regular shampoos.


How often should I use a clarifying shampoo?

You should use a clarifying shampoo as needed, typically once every 1-2 weeks or as recommended by your hairstylist. Using it too frequently can strip away too much natural oil from your hair and scalp, leading to dryness and potential damage. Adjust the frequency based on your hair type, lifestyle, and the amount of product buildup or oiliness you experience.


Can clarifying shampoo remove color?

Yes, clarifying shampoo can remove color from your hair, especially if used frequently or if the color is semi-permanent or temporary. It's advisable to use it sparingly if you havecolored hair or consult with your hairstylist beforehand.


What should I use on my hair after using a clarifying shampoo?

Due to the intensity of the cleansing ingredients in clarifying shampoos, you should always follow clarifying washes with aconditioner. A regular conditioner will do the trick, but to replenish moisture stripped away from the clarifying shampoo, a deep conditioner will add much-needed nourishment. 


How do you know if you need clarifying shampoo?

You may need clarifying shampoo if your hair feels weighed down, looks dull or greasy even after washing, or if you use a lot of hair products. Signs also include experiencing scalp buildup, itching, or noticing your hair lacks volume and bounce. 


Can clarifying shampoo be used on all hair types?

You should avoid using clarifying shampoos if you experience excessive dandruff, psoriasis, or scalp eczema. You should also use clarifying shampoo sparingly if you havenaturally dry and brittle hair.


Does clarifying shampoo work well with other hair care products?

Clarifying shampoo is said to enhance the effectiveness of other hair care products. Washing with a clarifying shampoo removes excess oil and product buildup that could be clogging your scalp or coating your strands. This buildup could be preventing other products from effectively penetrating strands and treating hair. A clarifying shampoo would clear your scalp and strands of any residue thereby allowing other products better access to treat your hair.

A lesser-known product in standard beauty routines, the clarifying shampoo is an unsung haircare hero that restores hair back to health. Over time, products like hairspray, gel, mousse, and even cleansing items like shampoos and scalp treatments build up on our hair’s strands. When we heat treat with tools like crimpers, straighteners, curlers, and blow dryers, this build-up can further damage the follicle, causing split ends, breakage, and frizz.


Incorporating a clarifying shampoo into your weekly or monthly hair care routine can cleanse the strands and rid the scalp of excess product residues. If your hair appears dull, drab, or lifeless, it may be time to wash with a clarifying shampoo. 


Davines’ clarifying shampoos incorporate naturally derived ingredients that work to remove the residue that styling products leave behind. Active ingredients keep the scalp clean and refreshed without stripping it of its natural oils. Once you’ve added this step into your routine, your hair will adjust over time and will appear more vibrant, voluminous, and healthy without being weighed down by excess product.
