So keep reading this step-by-step tutorial and don’t forget to #wearcliphair when you are showing off your gorgeous shampoo.

     What Is Clarifying Shampoo?

    Before we move on to the tutorial it is important to let you know what clarifying shampoo is and what you will gain from it. Clarifying shampoo is specifically designed to remove stubborn build up. Build up can be of styling products with silicones, waxes, oils and artificial chemicals. It is super important that you get rid of these things carefully but thoroughly so that you maintain hair and scalp health. It is also super important to keep your Cliphair hair extensions in good condition so that they last longer.

    DIY Clarifying Shampoo Tutorial


    Step Number 1: Gather Your Materials


    To begin you definitely need to make sure that you have everything that you need. As with many naturally based products, you may already have some things in your kitchen and the rest of the things you will be able to get easily. These ingredients have loads of natural benefits and also help you fight dandruff. All you need for this DIY shampoo is apple cider vinegar and baking soda.

    Step Number 2: Put Your Ingredients Together

    So this is super easy. Make sure that you have a bowel so you can mix them together and the final product (excuse the pun) will be lump free. First of all, put 1 tablespoon on apple cider vinegar into your bowel. This may smell but don’t worry it won’t make your hair smell at all. Now add 2 cups of warm water into your bowel. Finally, add your 1 tablespoon on baking soda. The way that I feel it works the best is if shake it in little by little as you whip it in.

    Step Number 3: Application

    Clarifying shampoos are super easy to apply and take next to no time. Once your hair is wet massage it into your hair and scalp as you would do with shampoo. I leave it on for about 5 minutes so everything can really sink in before I rinse it out and repeat 1 more time.

    That is it! I would recommend a really nourishing conditioner the lower half of your hair as this is where your hair will become the driest. You should repeat this once or twice a week to get the most healthy hair that is build up free and maintains the ph balance of your scalp.
