Build Up Busters

IMG_8230

I wash my hair once a week, on Sundays, for Jesus. If I have to wash it twice a week, there best be a good reason. My hair is VERY thick so that helps me get away with only washing it once a week, but I do need a little extra help with dry shampoo. I also like to use dry shampoo for volume. My personal favorite is the Batiste Beautiful Brunette because it works and doesn’t leave a white cast.

However, by the end of the week of using lots of dry shampoo, there is product build up on my scalp. I don’t like how that feels and I like to start the week with a clean, build up free scalp.

I rely on these two products for a good, clean scalp. They both really clean, but don’t strip or leave my hair feeling dry. In fact, it’s just the opposite!


LOREAL EVER FRESH MICRO-EXFOLIATING SCRUB

Claims–Removes impurities, flakes, and build up from dirt and excess oils :: promotes a healthy scalp

Price–$5 at Wal Mart :: $5 on Amazon :: $9.99 at lorealparisusa.com

Pros–Affordable :: sulfate free :: makes hair SO soft :: love the exfoliation/scrub it gives my scalp

Cons–Not cruelty free :: not easy to access/locate/purchase

Final Thoughts–This product leaves my hair SO freaking soft. My hair and scalp feel clean and refreshed, but not stripped and dry. I highly recommend using this if you use a lot of products in your hair.

NEUTROGENA ANTI-RESIDUE SHAMPOO

Claims–Remove 90% of residue caused by shampoos, conditioners, and styling products :: non-irritating :: cleans your hair and instantly rinses away residue

Price for 6 oz— $5.29 at Target :: $5.28 on Amazon :: $5.28 at Wal Mart :: $6.49 at Walgreens
Price for 12 oz–$8.79 at Target :: $8.78 on Amazon :: $8.78 at Wal Mart :: $11.59 at Walgreens

Pros–Affordable :: easily accessible :: doesn’t strip the hair or dry it out :: only use once a week so it lasts a while :: WORKS

Cons–Not cruelty free

Final Thoughts–I have repurchased this SO many times. I let it run out once and I really missed it and my hair did too. If you are a dry shampoo user like me or use a lot of product, you need this.


How I use these products

  1. Wet my hair and apply the LOreal Scrub–I really work this in till I can feel the exfoliating beads on my scalp. I usually leave it in a few minutes while I wash my face or exfoliate my body.
  2. I rinse the scrub out and apply the Neutrogena Shampoo.

I don’t use conditioner all over my hair, especially not near my roots. However, after using the Neutrogena, sometimes I use a hair mask on my ends. If I don’t use a hair mask, I will spray a leave in conditioner.
