Hair Detox Shampoo: Why Do I Need It?

After indulging over the Christmas period, you may have decided to do a detox during January. Therefore, you have bid farewell to your fond memories of the cheese board and have decided to ditch the alcohol to get the year off to a healthier start. But it is unlikely that you have considered including your hair in your detox. How do you even detox your hair? In this blog post, we will answer all your hair detox questions, and explain why you need to purchase a hair detox shampoo this January.

What is Hair Detox Shampoo?

A hair detox shampoo, also known as a clarifying shampoo, specifically targets buildup on your strands. This buildup is a mixture of styling products, dirt and oils, that can accumulate on your scalp and locks over time. These types of shampoo have the power to get rid of buildup and leave your hair squeaky clean.

Why Do I Need to Use One?

You are probably wondering why you need a detox shampoo? As well as your normal shampoo, since your usual shampoo cleanses your hair and leaves it feeling clean. Your typical shampoo is adequate for using most hair wash days. But, it doesn’t have the right ingredients to eliminate the buildup your hair naturally experiences. Therefore, your strands require a hair detox shampoo. To deeply cleanse your hair and wash away any buildup.

Excess products and oils can weigh your hair down and leave it feeling lacklustre and limp. Buildup on your hair can also stop your hair care products from doing their job properly as they can’t penetrate the hair cuticle.

When Should I Use One?

We recommend using a hair detox shampoo once a month or every two weeks if you use lots of styling products on your hair. The thought of squeaky clean hair after every wash can be tempting. But be sure to stick to our recommendations because using a detox shampoo too often can strip your hair of its natural oils and leave it dry.

Can I Use A Clarifying Shampoo On Coloured Hair?

If you have recently had your hair coloured, we would not recommend using a clarifying shampoo on your hair due to its cleansing power. However, after a month or so, you will be fine, to detox your hair again. Clarifying shampoo is also good to use if you have overdone it with a toning shampoo and your hair has been left with tinges of purple or blue.

How to Use Hair Detox Shampoo

If you are considering using a clarifying shampoo, we would suggest doing it on a weekend where you have more time to pamper yourself. Take the day to invest in some self-care and wash away any stresses or bad thoughts from the week.

1. Make sure your hair is completely wet before applying the detox shampoo.

2. Next take the No More Prep Cleanser Shampoo and apply it to your wet hair, massage the shampoo into your hair and scalp.

3. If you have a scalp massager now is the perfect time to use it.

4. Once you have finished massaging the product into your hair, rinse it out thoroughly.

5. Now your hair is rid of that pesky buildup treat it to a hair mask to nourish and soften your locks.

More Detox Hair Products

A hair detox shampoo is just the start when it comes to detoxing your strands, and there are many more haircare products on the market that are great for detoxing your hair. In addition to using a clarifying shampoo, you could invest in a scalp scrub to thoroughly cleanse the scalp of buildup and excess oil. This product is especially good for those who suffer from dandruff or a flaky scalp. The Fanola Pre Shampoo Scrubbing Gel is similar to a scalp scrub as it purifies the scalp.
