We all have our own personal favourite products that we use regularly. And for the most part they always seem to be reliable and predictable. But have you ever noticed that once in a while you might use something that you feel you know very well and it just seems to not be doing what it should? This can be a rinse out hair product or a leave-in hair product. Your first thought might be ‘did they change the formulation?’ or something must be wrong with it. Actually it’s almost certain that you have build-up on your hair. Any hair product, even the ones you cannot live without, leaves a build-up on hair. This is not a bad thing! But once in a while it reaches that maximum level where your hair needs a deep cleansing. Usually about every 6 weeks. Now if you colour your hair every 6 weeks, than you have nothing to worry about, because the chemicals used to dye the hair will remove the build up. But if you don’t dye your hair all you need to do is use a shampoo on your hair that you don’t normally use. Cheaper shampoos give you a more squeaky clean. This is what you need to clarify the hair of the debris. You never want a squeaky clean any other time.
So if your hair seems to need a pick-me-up, remember to clarify!
