Default Relaxed Heads - Do you use a clarifying shampoo?

Which one and how often do you use it?

I've been using Suave Daily Clarifying since I began my HHJ. I used to clarify bi-weekly, but since the weather turned cold, I've been using it weekly. My hair is doing fine, but I wanted to see if anybody else clarified weekly.

I think I'll be able to go back to bi-weekly when the weather gets warmer. I'll see.....

Default Re: Relaxed Heads - Do you use a clarifying shampoo?

I Checked "As Needed" I use it right before Henna/Indigo. I find that my Henna grabs better.

I also use it during the relaxer process. And I use a Chelating Shampoo during that time as well. I'll also use the Chelating 'Poo 1 week Post Relaxer.

I don't really have too much Build-Up because I use primarily Natural/Handmades and shy away from "Cones".

I checked once per month but it's more like every 6 weeks. I use nexium deep cleansing shampoo because it was a huge bottle for like $3.

I clarify bi-weekly... I used to use the suave only, then i switched to VO5, now I am using some random brand clarifying shampoo (HE? Loreal? Idr...)

They all seem to work the same since I dilute them...

Default Re: Relaxed Heads - Do you use a clarifying shampoo?

ITA with @IDareT'sHair - I also use it "as needed" which is right before a henna treatment or if I used hairspray because of a night out. I usually use VO5 kiwi clarifying because I like the way it smells. Sometimes I co-wash with the clarifying conditioner (sounds like an oxymoron but it works).

Default Re: Relaxed Heads - Do you use a clarifying shampoo?

I only use clarifying shampoo when I have a lot of products built up in my hair. I try not to use it too much because clarifying shampoos are designed to strip excess oils. My hair will be extremely dry if I use it too often.

I selected as needed. I only use it when I use a lot of gels, oils, and other products. That rarely happens

@demlew I Agree! A Clarifying Conditioner works just as Well.

I like Avalon Organics Lemon, Babbasu & Shea Clarifying Conditioner.:

But I will try VO5 Clarifying Conditioner. (Thanks for the mentioning that one).

every weekend, I know it strips hair of oils but I can't stop lol. I haven't seen any adverse effect. But I'll try and use it every other week and see if I see a difference.

I do it every couple of weeks but recently used Sally's ion color defense clarifying shampoo and liked it a lot. I like using clarifying shampoo before I flat iron my hair.

I chose as needed, whether it be once a week or once a month. I use Suave Daily Clarifying Shampoo for clarifying and Paul Mitchell Shampoo Three for chelating. I have hard water.
