BEST CLARIFYING SHAMPOO FOR LOCS


I have tried many shampoos in my locs to determine what is the best clarifying shampoo for locs that will give us that deep cleansing action that we need periodically. 

First, lets talk about what is a clarifying shampoo and how to effectively use them in your locs. Clarifying shampoos are meant to deep clean your hair/locs - removing all dirt, oils, products and debris. However, clarifying shampoos can be quite harsh on the hair leaving it dry and brittle but clean. Because of the drying effect, I highly recommend following up with an oil rinse or a moisturizing shampoo. If you use conditioner in you locs, then you can go straight to conditioning.

Sadly, not all clarifying shampoos are made equal and thus not all effectively clarify the hair/locs. I have tried many different clarifying shampoos that leave my hair dry and feels squeaky clean but I can clearly see that it is still dirty. Even shampoos that I swore by when i was loose natural and even in the first few years of my loc journey, is simply not effective anymore on my matured locs. I needed a shampoo that would penetrate the locs and clean it inside out. 


For me, that shampoo is Neutrogena Anti-Residue Shampoo. This product gets deep into my locs and remove all product, oil and dirt from my locs and scalp. I have scalp eczema so, ensuring that I maintain a clean scalp is very important. It lathers really well and you do not need a lot to get a clean head of locs/hair. After one or two shampoos, I follow up with either a moisturizing shampoo or a diluted conditioner.

You can get this shampoo pretty much anywhere but I purchased mine from Amazon - like i do everything else. After many trial and error, I can declare that the Neutrogena Anti-Residue Shampoo is the Best Clarifying Shampoo For Locs.

Dossier Perfume Review - Is It Worth It?

Have you heard about Dossier Perfume? They are a perfume brand that creates scents inspired by luxury brands for ONLY $29 - a fraction of the price.  Scents I Tried: Oriental 1 - inspired by YSL Black Opium Floral 3 - inspired by Chanel’s Chanel No. 5 Click on my link to shop: DOSSIER   Use GLAM10 for 10% off. I love y’all, save some coins.  How it works:   The way it works is that they send a small sample in every perfume box, that can be opened and tested before opening the big 50ml bottle. - If you don't want to keep the scents, all you have to do is return them within 30 days from receiving, and you will be charged absolutely nothing! - The returned bottles must be unsealed - that's why they include the sample :) Have you tried Dossier or interested in trying it out?
