Everything You Need to Know About Clarifying Shampoo

So, you’ve heard of ‘clarifying shampoo’ but aren’t exactly sure how they differ from your average product or how to use them. That’s where our haircare experts come in. Let’s start by talking you through everything you need to know about clarifying shampoos.

What is Clarifying Shampoo?

Clarifying shampoos are deep cleansing treatments for your hair that prevent product build-up and remove hard water minerals, excess oil and grease, and pollutants. Using the shampoo regularly in between washes can allow your hair to appear healthy and shiny, removing any unwanted build up.

Clarifying shampoos should be used before colouring your hair so that the colour can successfully penetrate the hair shaft, and before using a hair mask, so the nourishing ingredients have optimum effect. Try not to use one too soon after a colour treatment though, as it may cause the colour to fade quicker.

They’re also extremely effective at removing chlorine from hair, making them the perfect hair product for swimmers who want to keep their colour bright.

Due to their deep cleansing, detox properties, clarifying shampoos can be rather drying, so we would always recommend teaming them with the use of a conditioner.

NEW PRO:VOKE’s Touch Of Silver Clarifying Treatment Shampoo with hydrating AquaPlex™

Our NEW Touch Of Silver Clarifying Treatment Shampoo, with hydrating AquaPlex™, is a nourishing clarifying shampoo that removes impurities and product build-up from your hair. The AquaPlex™ is a moisturising system that allows the hair to be thoroughly conditioned as well as cleansed by hydrating the dry, damaged hair. This new moisture system contains black oat extracts which helps to improve the structure and shine of the hair, making it smoother and easier to comb through. Find out more about the product here.

How to use PRO:VOKE’s Touch of Silver Clarifying Treatment Shampoo

Whether you have natural or coloured white, platinum, blonde or grey hair, our clarifying shampoo can help. Use once or twice a week between uses of your normal shampoo and conditioner – we’d recommend using our Touch of Silver Colour Care Shampoo and Conditioner. Or, for a more silvery tint, use in every wash to build up purple pigment.

Make sure to massage and leave the Clarifying Treatment Shampoo on for a few minutes and then rinse thoroughly with warm, but not hot, water to wash away all impurities.

What to do After Clarifying Your Hair 

For optimum results, we recommend following up a clarifying shampoo with a conditioning treatment. This locks in moisture and lustre for a healthy shine. Our Toning Treatment Mask is ideal as it instantly banishes brassy tones whilst nourishing the hair so it’s visibly brighter in just one wash. Find out more about this product here.
