That September back-to-school feeling that brings an overflow of motivation and energy is slowly settling in and steadily diminishing. As the rush that comes with the first few crisp fall days fades it takes some innovation and creativity to keep us inspired. Here at All Things Hair, we are firm believers that there’s nothing like a little detox to hit refresh on our routines and to reignite our motivation. Enter a skill you’ll be happy to have in your hair care arsenal: how to detox your hair.
There’s nothing like a change of pace and routine to keep things exciting. Learning how to detox your hair is one of those skills that hits all the notes of change from your usual routine (we’ll tell you all about why this isn’t an everyday thing), while also becoming a semi-regular occurrence that you’ll be happy to fall back on every time the seasons change:
How to Detox Your Hair at Home
The rise of drugstore beauty products that rival their salon-quality, more expensive counterparts have made endeavors like detoxing your hair at home much more doable. Unlike the at-home bleach kit your stylist has made you swear to never touch again, a D.I.Y. detox is totally within the realms of beauty school dropouts or no-shows.
Suave Essentials Daily Clarifying Shampoo and Conditioner is one such pair. Available at your corner drugstore, this duo does all the hard cleansing work for you. While many clarifying shampoos do some damage to the ph balance in your strands, this daily duo is safe enough to use regularly. We suggest using it once a week at most and rotating your other washes to include a more moisturizing shampoo and conditioner: too much clarifying can strip your hair of its natural oils and will take your detox a few steps too far.
Follow up with Dove Anti-Frizz Oil Therapy Hair Mask to balance out that cleansing shampoo. Your hair might feel a bit dry at first so it’s important to nourish and hydrate your strands just after cleansing them. Your hair’s natural oils will return but you can jump ahead and speed up that process by using a hair mask like this one.
You’ll be left with squeaky clean, hydrated and fully revived strands after just one run through this new routine. As if the promise of the holidays and cozy winter nights up ahead weren’t inviting enough.
