Three Ways to Get Some Clarity (In Your Hair)

If you've got buildup from chlorine or styling products, or perhaps your hair is looking a little lackluster, I've got a few solutions. Just head to the pantry, grab a few ingredients, and stir up your own homemade brew.

Do you need some clarity? Then perhaps it's time for a little DIY action. Keep in mind that for color-treated hair, it's probably best to use a clarifying shampoo specifically formulated to protect your color from stripping out. Check out three of my tips after the jump.

  • Baking soda: When mixed with your regular shampoo, baking soda helps remove residue on the hair. And that's not all. This common kitchen ingredient works amazingly well for other beauty needs, too.
  • Cider rinse: First shampoo hair, rinsing out all of the suds. Measure about 1/2 cup of apple cider vinegar in a pitcher and add about four cups of water. Pour over hair and don't rinse out.
  • Egg shampoo: Mix together one egg with a dash of lemon juice. Add to your shampoo of choice. Lather and rinse. Might I suggest that you use your leftover eggs and lemons to make a delicious eggs Benedict?

My hair is ridiculously oily (sigh), so every two weeks I squeeze fresh lemon juice in my scalp and then wash it. It work wonders and leaves my hair shiny and soft.
