Looking for more information on when, how, and why you should Clarify your curls? This blog post has you covered! Let's start with the basics:


A clarifying shampoo is specifically formulated to deeply cleanse the hair and scalp by effectively removing product buildup, silicones, waxes, and mineral oils, oils, pollutants, hard water minerals, and other impurities that can accumulate over time.

Whether you have waves, curls, or coils, Just to Clarify Clarifying Shampoo is here to revitalize your hair, leaving you with bouncier, healthier, and more vibrant curls. So, embrace the clarifying power and let your curls shine like never before!


  • hair looks dull
  • hair is weighed down
  • hair is suddenly not looking “right”/ products not working anymore
  • hair feels “producty” even after washing
  • hair looks dirty when it is clean
  • oily roots sooner than before
  • itchy or flaky scalp
  • stringy hair
  • more frizz
  • curls falling flat and not holding their shape
  • if you just feel like your hair is acting different


To make the most of Just to Clarify's clarifying power, it's essential to incorporate it into your hair care routine at the right intervals. Here's a general guideline:

  • Wavy or Fine Hair: Use Just to Clarify every 1-2 weeks to remove build-up from styling products and restore your hair's natural vibrancy.

  • Curly and Kinky/Coily or Coarse Hair: Clarify with Just to Clarify every 4-6 weeks to deeply cleanse your hair and scalp, ensuring optimal curl health and definition.

  • For our brand new customers, a clarifying shampoo as the first wash (Clean Slate Method) sets the foundation for our products to work their magic.


  1. Wet Your Hair: Start by thoroughly wetting your hair with warm water, making sure that it is sopping wet.

  2. Apply: Using the applicator nozzle, apply the Just To Clarify Clarifying Shampoo to your scalp.

  3. Massage: Using your fingerpads or an Exfoliating Scalp Massage Brush, gently massage the shampoo into your scalp in a circular motion. Work the product into your scalp for about 2 - 3 minutes.

  4. Lather: Work the product through your hair from your roots to your ends. Adding more water and more product if needed, then emulsify. Continue washing ensuring your hair remains sopping wet as you go. Wash for 2-3 minutes to thoroughly remove dirt and buildup.

  5. Rinse: Rinse your hair thoroughly with clean water.

  6. Repeat, If Desired: If you feel like your hair needs an extra dose of clarifying power, you can repeat the shampooing process. If it didn’t foam the first time it’s a good indication that you need another wash. If you’re trying to remove silicones from your hair a second wash is needed.

  7. Deep Conditioning: Because clarifying shampoos are so effective in removing buildup and impurities, your curls may feel a bit dryer after washing. To keep your curls in tip-top shape, we highly recommend treating them to a deep conditioning session using our One & Only Creamy Conditioner. Click here to read our Blog Post on Deep Conditioning. This step will ensure your curls stay soft, hydrated, and absolutely fabulous.
