Our Guide To Choosing The Right Clarifying Shampoo For Your Colored Hair
Many shampoos claim to offer “hair detoxing” benefits, but isn’t that the job of all shampoos, we hear you ask? Well, yes and no. Your regular hair cleanser is designed to lift daily dirt and grime. And if you use one of Nexxus’s science-backed ranges, then you’re already one step ahead. But if your hair still feels greasy and heavy after wash day, you may need an additional deep cleanse, and that’s where a clarifying shampoo comes in.
Why do I need a clarifying shampoo?
Also known as detox shampoos, these boosted cleansers cut through the harder-to-budge build-up caused by everyday styling products. Dry shampoos, the go-to product for oilier hair types, are also prone to leaving stubborn build-up behind. Nexxus’s Clean & Pure Nourishing Detox Shampoouses an exclusive ProteinFusion blend containing elastin protein and marine minerals, which work together to purify and revive your hair and scalp, bringing them back to their former glory.
What causes build-up on the hair and scalp?
There are many reasons some people’s hair never feels clean enough. Excess sebum, heavy styling products, regular visits to a swimming pool, or living in a hard-water area can all contribute to hair that looks and feels limp, crispy, and dull. Certain scalp complaints can be blamed on this build-up, so if you’re noticing skin flakes among your strands, an exfoliating scalp scrub such as the Clean & Pure Invigorating Detox Scalp Scrubcould be the all-important first step to your new purifying hair routine. Why? Because scalp scrubs physically dislodge the debris shampoo can’t reach.
The best clarifying shampoo for colored hair
Here’s the catch: some clarifying shampoos are so good at nixing the build-up we don’t want in our hair, they can often be attributed to speeding up color fade. This is down to the inclusion of sulfates in their formulas. They lather up nicely and cut through grease, but they can also strip hair and fade color in high concentrations. Clean & Pure Nourishing Detox Shampoo is free from stripping sulfates as well as clingy silicones, which can build up and weigh down fine, limp hair.
Do I need to use a clarifying conditioner?
Although it’s the job of your shampoo to cleanse the hair and scalp, it’s worth checking that the conditioner you team it with isn’t going to undo any of its hard work. Nexxus’s Clean & Pure Nourishing Detox Conditioner uses the same ProteinFusion blend as its shampoo counterpart, harnessing the purifying and reviving benefits of elastin protein and marine minerals. Protein science is at the heart of every Nexxus collection, restoring strands with the very proteins lost to environmental aggressors, and future-proofing your hair health and color vibrancy.
