Being blonde, I'm always on the lookout for products that will help keep my hair looking bright and fresh. I noticed a while back that my hair was becoming difficult to manage - it was starting to feel dry and brittle, and the roots would become greasy after just a day. This was so impractical for me - having long hair means that washing and drying can be a chore, and after a busy week at uni/work it wasn't too fantastic having to spend a couple of hours washing, drying and styling my hair every night. The colour also looked dull and brassy. I'd heard about clarifying shampoos before, and I've used them in the past in handy sachets and small bottles - so i thought I'd hunt one down and give them another go.
This shampoo has solved my hair nightmare. For under a fiver, I've picked up a fantastic budget product that will last me ages and the most important thing is - it works. I was a little worried at first that this would strip my hair completely and I'd be left with dry ends and an even more un-tameable barnet that what I started with. I found it to be the complete opposite - even when washing the product out I found my hair felt so much softer and smoother, and when dry, looked bright and clean, as well as feeling light and 'swishy' (yes..swishy..) It's very gentle and won't strip your hair of moisture like other product removal shampoos ive tried - it leaves my hair feeling in really good condition. I'd gone from having to wash my hair every day to being back to being able to leave it a day or two in between washes.
I don't use this everyday - I try to use it once or week or I'll just save it for when I can feel my hair is becoming weighed down with product or looking a bit lifeless and dull. I walked into work yesterday after using it the night before and my colleagues all said how blonde my hair looked - some even thought i had dyed it. It just goes to show you don't have to spend a fortune for a decent clarifying shampoo - I don't know how I ever lived without it and for the price, I'm certainly not complaining!
Any other clarifying shampoos you recommend?
