Summer holiday is almost over and it’s about time that you should do some detox to your entire body. Skin detox might seem to be familiar to anyone, but have you ever heard of hair detoxing? It actually does exist and today we will give you some tips on how to detox your hair after a long summer vacation exposing your hair to sun rays, heat, and humidity.
Before doing hair detox, what you get to know is your current hair condition, what the state of your hair is. There are some ways that you can apply to figure out your hair state or you can ask for some help from your hair stylist. Besides noticing your hair types, you should also pay attention to your hair care routine in order to define your hair current state. If you don’t have oily hair and you wash it every day, then it is probably a bit dry. If your hair is oily and you wash it daily, your hair ends can be a little dry and it might appear to be split apart. If you go a day or two between washing, your hair will have a bit of build up, particularly around the roots. The truth is no matter your hair care routine is, clarifying or cleansing shampoo is crucial to get the extra junk off your hair. These build ups might be excess oil, hair product, dirt, etc which clog your pores and cause your real hair a greasy look. One thing that you should keep in mind is that these clarifying or cleansing shampoo might be a bit harsh on your hair color which can make your hair hue fades away more quickly. However, the good news is that you can use this shampoo to your color-treated hair if you follow up with a really good conditioner to supply your hair with more moisture and nutrients. Down here is the more detail steps of how to use clarifying shampoo to detox your hair.
Firstly, brush your hair nicely before you head to a shower. After wetting your hair completely, apply a quarter-size amount of cleansing shampoo to your hair from the scalp. Gently use the pads of your hands to massage your scalp and slowly go all the way down to the ends of your hair. Then, let it sit for 2 or 3 minutes and rinse off with water. Lastly, don’t forget to apply some good conditioner to your hair from mid-shaft to the ends after shampooing your hair with cleansing shampoo.
Some other hacks that work pretty well too are to add a table spoon of baking soda to your favorite shampoo which works just the same to the clarifying shampoo. Also, you can use the mixture of baking apple cider vinegar and water to spray on your wet hair to clean it off.
So these are the ways you can use to detox your hair in or after the summer holiday. If you can’t find a clarifying shampoo, go for baking powder method. It works great too and it is available in your kitchen, so take advantage of it.
