Is Clarifying Shampoo Good for Curly Hair?

Is Clarifying Shampoo Good for Curly Hair?

By Ebony Bomani

Clarifying shampoos have had the reputation for snatching every ounce of oil from the hair, but not all clarifying shampoos are created equally. Contrary to what’s been said before, curls, coils, and tight textures benefit from clarifying shampoo, too! Allow your curly hair to speak for itself. Recognize the beauty in your natural hair type by treating your strands to a curl cleansing shampoo, regularly. Here are five (5) benefits of clarifying shampoo for natural hair for you to better understand why using clarifying shampoo for curly hair is an absolute must:

1. Rejuvenate the Scalp -The accumulation of the scalp's own natural oils, hair product residue, dead skin cells, and sweat are what we know as buildup. Scalp build up will show up as itching, inflammation, flaking, and/or film on the scalp. 

Incorporating a curl clarifying shampoo into your hair care regimen around every three washes will keep buildup in the rearview and improve the condition of your scalp. Indulge the scalp with a natural hair serum 2-3 times p/week to rejuvenate and promote scalp health. Clarifying shampoo can help eliminate an itchy scalp and promote healthy hair growth for any hair type.

2. Improve Definition - Every now and then, we may experience limp curls, due to the weight from product buildup. Clarifying shampoos wash away residuals from products and other impurities that can weigh down your damaged hairThis gentle clarifying shampoo has natural ingredients like essential oils that help to reset and restore definition! Lock in your natural hair texture with PATTERN's Leave-In Conditioner and your favorite curly hair stylers.

3. Revive Dull Hair - When hard water, pollutants, and hair product, such as dry shampoo and hairspray, builds up on the strands they make the hair look dull. Unlike regular shampoo, clarifying shampoo will remove the residue, exposing the hair's true luster and shine.

4. Absorb Moisture - Once there's buildup on the hair, it's a challenge for it to receive vital moisture. Using a clarifying shampoo will open the cuticle layer, remove styling product buildup, and welcome moisture into your dry hair. That's music to low porosity strands! HELLO! Follow up with PATTERN's Hydration Shampoo for an extra dose of hydration, prior to using your favorite PATTERN conditioner.

5. Optimize Deep Conditioning - Experiencing the maximum benefits of your curly hair treatments are more likely upon the removal of stubborn
mineral build up with clarifying shampoo. It enables the treatment's moisturizing ingredients and the natural essential oil to penetrate more effectively. Now it's time to treat yourself to a paraben-free deep conditioner and revive your natural hair. Hint: All PATTERN products are Paraben Free, SLS/SLES-Free, Free of Cyclic Silicones, Phthalates & Formaldehyde.  After using your clarifying shampoo for curly hair, follow up with a steam treatment, using PATTERN's Heavy or Intensive Conditioner, to optimize deep conditioning and reveal luscious, healthy hair.
