3 Methods for Clarifying Curly Hair
Are your curls looking a little lackluster lately? It might be time to clarify your curls! It’s no secret that we curly girls love our products. But over time, buildup from products, sebum, and dirt can lead to frizz, limp curls, and lack of curl definition. Not what you want!
Buildup is especially problematic during the summer, when swimming can add an extra layer of chlorine and salt residue to hair. Luckily, it’s pretty easy to remove that buildup and revive lackluster curls. Keep reading for 3 methods for clarifying curly hair to give your curls a fresh start!
1. Homemade Curly Hair Scalp Scrub
This DIY clarifying scrub utilizes brown sugar and oatmeal to gently buff away dirt and residue, bringing curls back to life. Plus, conditioner restores moisture to dry, brittle locks.
Just mix equal parts brown sugar, finely ground oatmeal, and Nourish Rinse-Out Conditioner in a small bowl. Use your fingers to work the mixture into your scalp in a circular motion, then rinse thoroughly with lukewarm water.
2. DIY Deep Cleansing Shampoo
You can also boost the cleansing power of your regular shampoo by adding baking soda. Just mix together one tablespoon of baking soda with one tablespoon of Cleanse Daily Shampoo. Massage into scalp, rinse thoroughly, then follow with conditioner.
Heads up: this method isn’t recommended for color-treated hair, since baking soda can strip the dye from your hair.
3. Purify Clarifying Shampoo
Of course, you don’t need to break open the pantry to clarify your curls! Instead, try Purify Clarifying Shampoo. This shampoo is specially formulated to gently remove buildup and residue from curls to leave your hair feeling soft and clean. For best results, use once per week or after swimming.
