If you have curly hair, you already know how important it is to keep it well moisturized. However, this doesn’t mean there aren’t other things you should be doing to keep your curls healthy, such as regularly clarifying them.
Clarifying is when you remove product build up and residue from your curls. If you don’t, over time build up can accumulate on your strands and scalp, which makes it difficult for your products to work well and for your scalp to be well moisturized. If you use a lot of oils or butters in your curls, you’re definitely going to want to clarify. However, we don’t want you using clarifiers that can damage your curls by stripping them, so here are a few great choices that work well but are gentle and effective.
