My Rating: 9/10
The majority of women use products in their hair daily that can cause problems if they don’t use a clarifying shampoo once in a while. You may use hair products for heat protection, hairspray for styling, leave-in conditioner, dry shampoo, and of course, shampoo and conditioner.
The bad part is that all of these things cause buildup in your hair that can…
• make your hair look dull
• create an oily film
• make your hair not want to dry
• stunt hair growth
• and more!
What you need is this clarifying shampoo for color treated hair by Ion.
“What does it do?”
Ion clarifying shampoo for color treated hair works excellently to break down buildup in your hair that can cause problems, while preserving the color in your hair. Sometimes hair can’t be cleaned anymore with regular shampoo because the gook is too powerful. Even though I stopped coloring my hair (I’m growing it out naturally), I still use the clarifying shampoo for color treated hair since it is more gentle yet gets the job done.
“Does it lather?”
Some ladies feel that if your head doesn’t get full of bubbles that your hair isn’t getting clean. This isn’t true. Ion clarifying shampoo for color treated hair is sulfate-free which means it’s not going to get super foamy easily. Below I will explain how to apply it so you can get a lather out of it.
“How do I use it?”
You use it almost like any other shampoos. First apply your normal shampoo amount to your palms then work into your scalp. Massage with your fingers for about a minute. This is so you’re really breaking up all that buildup at the roots and scalp. Then apply more and you will get some-what of a lather to work through the rest of your hair. I leave it in for a few minutes while doing something else. Afterwards, apply conditioner as you normally would.
“When do I use it?
How often you use a clarifying shampoo will be different for everyone. For example, swimmers may need to use it several times a week from all the chemicals and chlorine in the pools. If you barely use any hair products, you may only need to use clarifying shampoo once every couple months. Someone who uses an average amount of hair products should probably clarify their hair once a month maybe (this is what I do). You will know when you should use it from recognizing the buildup in your hair that doesn’t remove from regular shampoo.
“Will it dry my hair out?”
Unlike a lot of other clarifying shampoos, this kind won’t completely drain your hair of moisture. If somehow it does, then you are using it too often. What it does for me is make my hair light, fluffy, clean, soft, and even glowy if that’s possible.
