The Benefits of Plant-Based Clarifying Shampoo

Posted by Dr. Ellana on

An effective way to remove product build-up for healthier hair.

Is your mane feeling weighed down, greasy and uncooperative? Sounds like it needs a little TLC. All it takes is a consistent hair care routine including the right products, like CBD clarifying shampoo (coming soon to Safo)! This new beauty essential can give your strands the fresh start they need, leaving them fortified, hydrated and happy. 

We’re filling you in on everything you need to know about CBD clarifying shampoo: what it is, the key benefits, and how to properly use it. 

What is clarifying shampoo?

This product is specifically designed to remove build-up on your hair caused by gels, sprays, moisturizers, chlorine, minerals, and hair color to name a few. Over time, all of this residue can accumulate, causing your hair to feel dehydrated, heavy and dull. A clarifying shampoo has the ability to remove all of that heavy gunk and restore your hair to its natural glory. With just one use, you’ll quickly see and feel a difference—shinier, softer, lighter and more manageable hair. Think of it as an easy detox! 

However, there are a few drawbacks to using a traditional clarifying shampoo. If used too often, it can “overclean” your hair, drying it to a crisp. It can also irritate your scalp, but our forthcoming shampoo harnesses the power of CBD to prevent such issues! 

What are the benefits of using CBD clarifying shampoo? 

Generally, clarifying shampoos are known to exacerbate skin conditions like dermatitis and eczema, since they strip away natural oils—but CBD is incredibly soothing, and can mitigate scalp irritation. Along with its anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties, this powerhouse cannabinoid is rich in natural oils that help hydrate and protect your scalp and hair! And thanks to its amino acids and omega fatty acids, CBD can penetrate hair cuticles and build on keratin, resulting in stronger strands, improved elasticity and shine. It works to restore cells that have been damaged by chemicals and styling. 

To that end, the addition of CBD is especially beneficial for those with kinks, coils and curls, which tend to be on the drier side. A standard clarifying shampoo without CBD would further dry out those luscious locks.

How to properly use CBD clarifying shampoo.

Well, the process doesn’t stray too far from a regular shampoo application! It just takes a little more time, but we’re here for it. Some important steps to note:  

  • Apply a quarter size of shampoo on wet hair and scalp. Gently massage it throughout until all strands are saturated. FYI: Typically, most clarifying shampoos don't lather, but Safo’s formula will give you that reassuring froth!
  • Set a timer and let the shampoo sit for 3-5 minutes (great to use while showering). This will allow it to properly break down all that build-up. When the alarm goes off, rinse thoroughly and condition. 
  • Once the process is complete, double down on hydration from root to tip! Check out Safo’s CBD hair care ritual, which includes the most nourishing scalp serum and hair moisturizer. Together, they’ll effectively strengthen your locks, and boost moisture and shine. 

Lastly, when it comes to frequency, we recommend using CBD clarifying shampoo 1-2 times per month—but ultimately, it depends on how much product you use in between washes! Remember to look out for indicators, like excessive dryness, oiliness, heaviness and dullness. 

So, is CBD clarifying shampoo right for you?
