Is there a shampoo bar, clay, powder, or natural shampoo that gets rid of buildup and mineral deposits?

    you can make a hair mask of green clay and water and a couple of drops of natural oil.

    section your hair, smooth the mask from scalp to ends. massage the clay into your scalp to cleanse it and work up sebum, sweat, dirt, odor. wrap your hair in a plastic cap or bag and wrap a towel around that.

    let it set for at least a half-hour.

    thoroughly rinse with lukewarm water, squeezing the sections as the water rinses away to make sure the hair length is getting cleansed. massage scalp under water stream.

    gently squeeze dry, and smooth a small amount of oil onto ends and hair.

    you could also make a paste of baking soda and warm water with a couple of drops of oil. use this on your scalp only, as baking soda can be drying on the hair. your hair will be cleansed as the solution is being rinsed from your scalp. follow with a vinegar hair rinse, comprised of one teaspoon apple cider vinegar in 2 cups of warm water. pour it over your head, massaging it into your scalp and squeezing it into your hair. let it set a couple of minutes before rinsing it with lukewarm water. follow with a little oil smoothed onto your ends and hair.

    i think clays and baking soda are far better cleansers for scalp and hair. they leave the scalp clean and healthy, the hair soft and residue-free with a natural, fresh smell that is void of any kind of aroma.

    Where can you get the green clay? Is it like the bentonite(sp?) clay? I've been using Redkin Cleasing Cream to clarify - do you think the clay is better? Sorry Kynnib, not trying to bogart your thread - it was a good question though:flower:.

    I just used the [buylink=http://www.curlmart.com/Oyin-Handmade-Grand-Poo-Bar-p-188.html?utm_source=naturallycurly.com&utm_medium=text-link&utm_content=curltalk-post-text&utm_campaign=oyin-grand-poo-bar-succulent-solid-shampoo]oyin's grand poo bar[/buylink] today for the first time and I'm amazed at the results. It's the first time I've ever used a shampoo bar and it lathered great, didn't give that yucky strippy feeling that the ION I was previously using did and it smelled pretty good too. My hair is SO soft right now; I love my oyin's and now this is another product of theirs that I'll be keeping on hand. You can also do an acv rinse afterwards. That makes the scalp & hair feel great.

    I don't necessarily know if it's clarifying per se, but my hair definitely didn't seem to feel like it had build up afterwards. I just checked out their website and another nappy said she uses it for clarifying too. Try & see if it works that way for you. Their products are inexpensive enough to experiment with. :wink:

    any regular sulfate poo will clarify your hair. If you are not using cones, then a non sulfate poo will remove minerial oil and natural product buildup. I use regualr ole suave daly clarifier shampoo that's $1. Its really gentle for a clarifying shampoo

    regular shampoo will remove both of those.... vegerable wax isn't that hard to remove neither is beeswax. Cowashing won't remove them but a sulfae shampoo will. There's really no need to purchase a "special" clarifying shampoo.

    Do you think an AVC rinse or a baking soda rinse will remove it?

    I don't know about baking soda, but I've always been under the impression that ACV will not remove hard buildup like that. I always though of ACV as more of a PH balancer and it closes the cuticle...not a clarifer.

    Qhemet Biologics egyptian cleansing tea is also good howeverm the calcium bentonite mask or baking soda & water is just as effective plus you can get them on the ground. and I also love the Giovanni tea tree poo.
