Hands up who postpones washing their hair for as long as possible? I know I do because there's so many things I'd rather be doing than washing my hair. I know, my beauty blogger award is in the post. When it is time to wash, I love nothing more than a good clarifying shampoo. Something that gets rid of all build-up and leaves hair feeling infinitely swishier and cleaner.
So I've rounded up The Best Clarifying Shampoos, for those who hate washing their hair, use too much product or just fancy having their best hair yet. Time to lather up...
If you're looking for more of an ultimate clean-hair feeling, then Shampure is the one! It instantly cuts through any grime or grease, lathers magnificently and then leaves hair feeling super soft once it's dry. No heaviness left, but just hair that feels so swishy. It's gentle enough to use on a daily basis, but I think once a week would be best to make sure hair is in tip-top condition. It smells very relaxing (25 different plant and flower essences); just perfect for a sunday pamper session.
This is also fabulous for if your scalp is feeling a little worse-for-wear... I know dry shampoo is not ideal when used repeatedly but I'm lazy/have no time. When things are feeling too heavy, this one manages to leave the scalp feeling so fortified and fresh.
Noughty Detox Dynamo
Noughty is a new brand to me, but I am seriously impressed. The brand is based around haircare without any of the nasties (so no silicone, sulphates or parabens) but with all of the fun. Plus, the packaging is really cute and looks nice in my shower.
The Detox Dynamo formula smells minty thanks to its peppermint (to purify and hydrate). It also contains Sorrel extracts which help to cleanse and treat hair that needs a bit of a detox and serious wash. It also has sugar beet extract to condition, so it's sort of a smoothie for your hair...
The lack of sillicones is really apparent in this - hair doesn't have that artificial slip afterwards. Worth noting if having seriously sleek hair is a major must-have. It does feel supremely clean and (minty) fresh after washing, without being stripped or too slippery.
Tropic Clarifying Hair Wash
And the award for the best smelling haircare of all time goes to... Tropic! It smells like juicy fruit and holidays, which is always a welcome pick-me-up in dreary London. I mean, if anything is going to persuade you to wash your hair more regularly, it's going to be something that smells as good as this.
The range was created for sensitive scalps and for those looking to be eco-conscious and, like Noughty, it doesn't use SLS or silicones. No more nasties in haircare - told you haircare is the new skincare.
The formula on this does foam up nicely so you get that clean-hair feeling - something makes me want shampoo to foam! I wouldn't say this is stripping in the slightest. It doesn't leave hair feeling squeaky squeaky clean but just bouncier and with lots more volume. This is one that's going to fit into your routine really easily as you could use it repeatedly without hair feeling too clean and then dry/static.
