First up, a supercharged wash routine. “Clarifying shampoos are great when hair looks dull,” hair and curl expert stylist Candace Witherspoon explains. See, too much product, be it from leave-in treatments, dry shampoo, hair spray, etc., can build up on the hair over time.
When this happens, your true strands can’t shine through all of the residues. You may even feel a gritty texture on your hair, see little white specs on the strands, or experience increased tangling due to this buildup.
