It's a game changer.

My Hair and Scalp Feel Reborn Whenever I Use This Unappreciated Type of Shampoo

Your hair probably goes through a lot. From styling to products to salon appointments, it can get dried out, exposed to heat damage, and get some split ends or breakage. Buildup is another thing you might experience, too, especially if you use a lot of products, have an oily scalp, or even work out a lot. Basically, if your hair looks and feels limp, dull, or heavy, it might be due to excess buildup of leftover hair products or dirt. You might also notice some residue on your scalp when you're dealing with buildup.

So what can you do to get your hair back on track and start with a fresh slate, so to speak? Use a clarifying shampoo. These hard-working shampoos work to deeply cleanse the hair and scalp, making both feel super fresh and "brand new," pretty much.

It's important to note, though, that clarifying shampoos can be drying because they do such a good job with removing all the product grime and dirt. So, it's not something you'll want to use every day. Usage depends on your hair type and needs, but some stylists recommend using it once or twice a month. You can also use a leave-in treatment, conditioner, or mask to keep your strands hydrated.

Take a look at some of the best formulas we love below.

The cool thing about this shampoo is it's a mousse consistency and lathers up when you mix it with water. It contains volcanic ash to gently exfoliate the hair and scalp, plus sea kelp extract to purify. The formula also features the Oribe Signature Complex (watermelon, lychee, and edelweiss flower extracts), which protects against drying and damage.

The activated charcoal in this formula removes impurities and product buildup, but it's not super harsh on your hair. It also contains a vegetable protein to strengthen chemically treated or damaged hair.

Good for all hair types, this refreshing shampoo removes dirt, impurities, and chlorine. It's safe to use on color-treated and natural hair. One reviewer wrote, "This shampoo not only has a fantastic fragrance, it effectively removed hard water buildup in our family's hair. Our hair is soft and squeaky clean. The shampoo can be drying, so we use it once a week. I highly recommend."

The apple cider vinegar in this shampoo exfoliates and removes flakes and buildup, while hydrolyzed keratin softens and smooths the hair. It also leaves your hair looking shinier.

This clarifying shampoo is specially formulated for curly hair. Not only does it gently remove buildup, but it also helps the hair receive moisture and enhances curls. Ingredients include rosemary leaf, safflower seed, and aloe vera extracts.

Neutrogena's anti-residue shampoo has over 20,000 ratings on Amazon with 4.5 out of 5 stars. It's non-irritating and it actually can help boost your hair's volume, too. One reviewer wrote, "Great product! This shampoo removed months/years of product buildup in my hair that I didn't even know I had. After just one wash, my hair felt lighter, finer, more voluminous, and I needed fewer styling products to achieve the same results."

This sulfate-free, deep cleansing shampoo works to clear the hair and scalp of residue and dirt, while also balancing sebum. Avocado and jojoba oils leave the hair shiny and wheat germ oil and vitamins A and E protect against environmental damage.

You don't have to worry about this shampoo stripping your hair dry—it contains glycerin to seal moisture in and coconut oil to promote thickness. Other ingredients include rosemary leaf extract, witch hazel, and tea tree oil to purify and remove buildup.

If you have color-treated hair, you can use Moroccanoil's shampoo without worry. It's color-safe and nourishing. One reviewer wrote, "I find that this particular clarifying shampoo is not as stripping on my hair as others are. I color my hair on a regular basis, and usually, these shampoos will make my color bleed, and run like crazy. But not this one! I didn’t notice much of any color, if any, wash away. Very pleased with this! Left my scalp feeling clean, and refreshed."

You can use this clarifying shampoo on all curl types—it's formulated to maintain moisture and smooth your curls. In addition to buildup removal, it also works to detangle the hair and make it more manageable.

Living Proof's detox shampoo removes buildup caused by product, pollution, and hard water. It contains activated charcoal to absorb oil, plus a scalp moisturizing and soothing complex with witch hazel to condition.

This sulfate-free shampoo is formulated with charcoal and bergamot to cleanse the hair and scalp of excess dirt and oil. It's also infused with coconut oil to moisturize and nourish the hair.

This deep-cleaning shampoo is color-safe and works to remove styling product buildup. The formula is gentle enough so it retains moisture and pumps up the shine factor.

The key ingredient in this shampoo is blue-tansy flower oil, which nourishes the hair follicles to promote growth. It also contains jojoba oil to protect against dryness, breakage, and split ends, plus bamboo extract for shine and strength.

You can use this shampoo weekly to clear the hair and scalp of excess oil, product residue, and environmental irritants. In addition to charcoal powder, hops extract, and a coconut fatty acid blend, the formula also contains a healing protein that is similar to keratin, which works to refill keratin and repair damaged hair.

SheaMoisture's clarifying shampoo is safe to use on both natural and synthetic hair. It can get rid of buildup from bonding glue and it won't strip the hair of its natural moisture. One reviewer wrote, "My wig was in need of some serious TLC. This shampoo left my wig nice and clean!"

Sunday Riley's rinse-off serum is a multitasker—it exfoliates the scalp, dissolves oil buildup, and rehydrates the scalp. Ingredients include glycolic and salicylic acids, niacinamide, rose clay, and jasmine essential oil.

Infused with oats and apple cider vinegar, this clarifying rinse rebalances the pH, adds shine, and promotes a healthy scalp.

If your scalp is in need of some TLC, this treatment works to nourish, balance, and stimulate the scalp. It removes buildup while also delivering nutrients. Ingredients include baobab, amaranth, and moringa oils, plus basil leaf.

Christophe Robin's scalp scrub is both purifying and moisturizing, and is specially formulated to rebalance sensitive or oily scalps.

Use this scrub to soothe a dry and itchy scalp—it removes dead skin cells, unclogs pores, and rebalances pH levels. It's also color-safe. Next, Psst, for Thin Hair Types: This Trick Gets You Big Hair Fast

These Are the 25 Best Blazers Ever, According to Our Editors

FYI, we're really picky.

These Are the 25 Best Blazers Ever, According to Our Editors

As an avid blazer connoisseur myself, I can attest to how difficult it is to find one that feels just right. One that has the perfect amount of structure yet is comfortable, one that is boxy but not too oversize, and one that looks expensive regardless of the actual price. What tends to happen when you're looking for the "perfect" version of something is that you end up buying lots of imperfect versions of it leaving you unsatisfied. Well, that just won't do, at least not on my watch.  

I decided to reach out to my stylish co-workers for their takes on the blazers that they cannot live without. According to the picky editors ahead, the five blazers they listed are truly the best ever, and trust me when I say they don't say that often. From investment-worthy designers to some cult-classic affordable brands, the ladies ahead are spilling the tea on their all-time favorite blazers, and I can't wait for you to feast your eyes on them. 

Additionally, in case the small selection of "best" blazers doesn't excite you, then I shopped out some newer ones on the market that I've recently had my eye on. You're welcome. 

"I added this beautiful double-breasted blazer to my closet during quarantine and it's easily my favorite piece I own right now. It's structured and just roomy enough to have that cool oversize feel but not too much that it looks like I'm drowning in it. I also love that the fabric has a subtle texture, so it adds interest to the whole look. I would wear this thing every day if I could (and honestly, I just might)." 

"For those of you who, like me, are very swayed by color, then this Jacquemus pink blazer is for you. While my exact version is no longer for sale, a hot pink blazer from the designer is something I can speak to. From the pristine and unique tailoring to the bold hue, this particular blazer choice is one I haven't regretted for one second since I made the splurge last year." 

I've become really faithful to my trusty Zara blazers. I'm always pleasantly impressed when it comes to their fit, quality, and silhouettes. I have a handful of classic hues, but I always get compliments on this super-chic check one. Right now, I'm eyeing this cool oversize plaid blazer—perfect for fall.

"While I typically gravitate toward more classic silhouettes, I couldn't pass up this blazer from A.W.A.K.E. Mode after falling in love with the brand last year. Their pieces are a little off-kilter in the best possible way, with details like asymmetrical hemlines, exaggerated pockets, and voluminous peplums that create cool, sculptural shapes. The exact jacket I bought is now sold out but you can still order this similar version that's finished with an exposed shoulder." 

Naturally, you need the entire set. 

Again, you need the set, I'm sorry! 

The shape of this one is so nice.
