Women feel their hair is dirtier due to increased sweat on their scalp, so we over-shampoo. Clarifying shampoos cleanse the hair, but also strip it of moisture and natural oils. As you may know, stripping the hair without replenishing the moisture can lead to breakage. Try alternating between using shampoo and co-washing. If you use shampoo, focus mainly on the scalp and allow the shampoo to naturally run down the strands to catch product build up and dirt. Whenever you go for a swim, lightly apply conditioner from roots to ends before jumping in the pool or ocean; the conditioner seals the hair's cuticle, creating a protective barrier.
