11 Best Clarifying Shampoos to Give Your Hair New Life

So, what exactly is a clarifying shampoo, and why do we need them? Well, products like conditioner, shine serum, hairspray, etc. tend to create buildup on your hair and scalp, which leads to dullness, frizziness and heaviness. Environmental factors like pollution and mineral deposits from hard water can also contribute to the aforementioned lackluster hair -- so, enter clarifying shampoo. You see, a well-deployed clarifying shampoo can take care of all that, leaving you with a clean (not to mention shinier and more voluminous) slate. They're not something you should use every day, since they can be harsh, especially on drier hair -- but they're something you should consider using anywhere from weekly to monthly, depending on your hair type and how much product you use.   read more

Hair Care Information and Advice

If you're like most women, then you're concerned about the appearance of your hair, and will do what it takes to take care of it. Starting now, it's time to banish dull and dry hair from your life, and take better care of your hair to get lustrous locks that will turn heads. To help you, Total Beauty offers you expert tips on hair care for shiny, glossy hair.



If your hair is in good condition and is healthy, then your hair care regime will only need a few tweaks to keep your tresses looking great. One way to have healthy hair is to maintain a healthy lifestyle; your mane will be in better condition, naturally. Your daily diet should include plenty of water, as well as lots of fresh fruit and vegetables. Opt for grilled or baked dishes rather than fried food, and limit your intake of cola or coffee, which have excess caffeine.

Perming, bleaching, or coloring frequently cause damage to your hair as they strip the shaft of its natural oils. Experts say that hair should have at least eight percent moisture for it to look silky and shiny. Using products meant for chemically treated hair can protect your tresses and make them look smooth and glossy.

Look through Total Beauty's hair care section to discover great secrets for gorgeous locks. Total Beauty offers some of the best hair care advice on the web, so you can have great hair all the time.
