I changed my shampoo a couple of months ago to Kerastase Bain Satin. I use the masque too with it as a conditioner as my hair is dry at the ends and highlighted too.
Recently I have noticed an oily patch on one side of my hair at the top, I wash it everyday but it is still there when I am drying it. Decided I may have build up so have just ordered a clarifying shampoo. Will this fix it? Never used clarifying shampoos before but am assuming (maybe wrongly) that this patch may just be a build up of products.
Yes I use the Aveda one but I'm sure they all do a similar thing. I use it for the same reason, OP. Occasionally I get a greasy patch that won't go away after washing with my regular shampoo. A quick do with clarifying shampoo and my hair is back to normal.
My new fav is Balance Lift shampoo by Fushi, works like a charm, even better than the Pantene one (which i used to use before), but have you seen the ingredients in Pantene?? Don't want those chemicals seeping into my brain haha
Try washing with fairy liquid (seriously!) once every few weeks. Follow up with a good conditioner and voila, fluffy clean hair! My hairdresser told me about this and I'm a convert. Key is not to do it too often to dry your hair out.
Apple cider vinegar, 100ml added to 400ml water, is a great hair clarifier. Shampoo out afterwards to stop the smell. I'm not particularly into "natural" remedies but definitely the best - and cheapest - thing that I've used.
