Do you use a Clarifying Shampoo?

And why or why not?

(Also, any rec's for a drugstore Clarifying Poo?)

    I use a clarifying shampoo that also has chelating capabilities. We live in a very hard water area AND we have a swimming pool. It's a double whammy for mineral build-up. I tend to clarify once every two weeks.

    I'm a curly-headed runner, triathlete and foodie! Sweat, chlorine, sun... my hair gets tortured by it daily. It somehow always manages to 'bounce' another day!

    Okay so here's a question, what is the different between chelating and clarifying? :?

    Clarifying shampoos may get the igredient gunk off of your hair, but chelating shampoos also get the hard water and chlorine buildup out. I just bumped an old thread of Laurabeth's about chelating shampoos.

    Wavies get to shampoo once a week (I have been using homemade shampoo using castille), and I use ACV once a week for hard water. (so I answered yes)
