I’ve been colouring my hair since I was 17. Yup. That means on January 18th it’ll be 31-THIRTY ONE YEARS of colouring my hair! That’s insane. Mind you, for the past 3 years, I haven’t really coloured by hair. The crazy colours I use are actually vegetable based stains-they don’t lift hair at all, just deposit the pink, purple, green on my hair. But my stylist does still occasionally lift my hair with a bit of developer, as there’s still some colour in my hair. Not completely grey yet I guess! Although, when Marky saw me in December for the first time in a couple of months, she was shocked at how white my hair had become. Ghost Tracy haha!
I prefer sulfate-free shampoos and conditioners for my hair as you know, and swear by the Aveeno Pure Renewal Shampoo. But sometimes, I feel like my hair needs a bit more of a squeaky clean feeling, ya know what I mean? Especially right before I get my hair crazy coloured. I like there to be no residue at all from any styling products. But most clarifying shampoos are HARSH sister. Like WHOA.
Not this one!
Live Clean Apple Cider Vinegar Clarifying Shampoo is a gentle SULFATE-FREE daily shampoo for oily hair, and a weekly deep cleanser to clarify all hair types! YAY!! SULPHATE-FREE people! That’s amazing because I don’t think there’s ever been one before?? Live Clean Apple Cider Vinegar Clarifying Finishing Rinse is made with real Bragg’s Apple Cider Vinegar. It’s formulated to gently condition and restore moisture and shine while helping to remove any dulling residue on your hair.
Live Clean Apple Cider Vinegar Clarifying Shampoo($6.99) smells exactly like a fresh red apple too! SO nice. It lathers up well for a sulphate-free shampoo, but the best part is how light and clean your hair feels after using it! It’s a healthier and more natural alternative to other clarifying shampoos. Live Clean Apple Cider Vinegar Clarifying Shampoo cleans your hair and removes excess build up and grease without stripping the hair of its natural oils. If I had oily hair? I’d use this every day. But, since I don’t-I use it once a week to deep cleanse my hair. And boy! What a difference this shampoo makes! Styling products work so much better now! And of course, I use this the night before I get my hair dyed too so that it’s my hair that’s getting the colour deposited, not the film of styling goop that’s covering each strand. Great stuff! There’s also a conditioning rinse available, but I haven’t been using that so I don’t think it’s a necessary item. Unless of course, you have oily hair and intend on using Live Clean Apple Cider Vinegar Clarifying Shampoo every time you wash your hair. If so, the conditioner would be a must.
You can find Live Clean Apple Cider Vinegar Clarifying Shampoo at Shopper’s Drug Mart and Walmart.
