Saturday, November 18th is National Apple Cider Day – so yes perfectly fitting for fall (I’m thinking of apple cider donuts of course) but let’s not forget Apple Ciders amazing beauty benefits – one of best being for your hair. Apple Cider is often used for its detoxing and deep cleansing properties in clarifying shampoos (& dry co-washes), which is an essential product for maintaining clean beautiful locks.
Wanted to share the below products and tips in case you have any Apple Cider themed beauty stories you are working on this week. Additionally, I have great Fekkai Stylists if you need any tips on why it’s great for your hair!
Here are a few reasons why you need a clarifying shampoo:
1.To get rid of build-up from your conditioner, treatments and styling products
2.In preparation for color or highlights
3.As a once-in-a-while volume booster for fine, straight hair
4.To clean non-color-treated hair that’s very oily
5.As a pre-masque step
6.To keep blonde hair from turning brassy
7.To get rid of hard water deposits or damaging chlorine
8.To re-start your hair regimen when nothing is working
