Why it's Important to Clarify Your Scalp

Products that leave a residue like styling mousse and commercial conditioners are common culprits. When combined with natural causes of buildup like dead skin cells, sebum, and sweat, you run the risk of scalp infections.

This buildup can clog up your roots, causing discomfort as your roots get inflamed. Your scalp may even start to itch and develop sores that cause permanent scarring. 

How to Clarify Scalp at Home

Just like your skin, a regular exfoliating routine can be beneficial for your scalp. Cleansing your scalp and stripping away all that buildup can make room for healthier follicles to grow over time!

Lemon Juice

Lemon juice is a great fix for quickly removing buildup. Simply mix 1 part of lemon juice to 3 parts of water, massage it onto your scalp and rinse to get rid of all that hardened sebum and impurities. If you have some serious buildup, you may have to leave it on your scalp a little longer.

The citric acid works as a natural clarifying agent for removing buildup. Alternatively, you can add a few drops of WOW Lemon Essential Oil to your shampoo for cleansing all that gunk. 

Apple Cider Vinegar

Apple Cider Vinegar is basically a miracle ingredient as it doesn’t just help remove buildup but has a wide array of other hair benefits.

The WOW Apple Cider Vinegar Shampoo is a gentle clarifying shampoo made without any harsh ingredients. 

It dissolves all that grime without stripping your hair's natural oils. Apple Cider Vinegar helps to clarify your hair, but also to close your hair cuticles as well which helps with adding a shimmery shine.

It's also able to restore the pH balance of your natural scalp, cultivating a healthy scalp for richer follicle growth.
