The Best Shampoo For Removing Product Buildup

A Good Wash!

Shampoo can be so confusing. There are so many different types and, honestly, who has the time to try them all out? Because let’s be real, the threat of a bad hair day if the shampoo doesn’t quite “work” is enough to keep you using the same old stuff day after day.

Over the years I’ve had the opportunity to try out so many different shampoos and it feels like I’m constantly switching it up. I’ve had a few really bad performers, and others do just “ok”, but a handful have really made the difference!

After last week’s product heavy Low Bun Updo Tutorial I had a few readers ask about what I use to get all that dry shampoo, texture spray, and hair spray out of my hair at the end of the day. The answer is simple! Living Proof’s Perfect Hair Day Triple Detox Shampoo.

It’s color safe, paraben-free, phthalate-free, silicone-free, sulfite-free, and gentle, but somehow it totally works!! I don’t use this shampoo every day, but on the days when my hair has A LOT of product (i.e. days of dry shampoo and texture spray) I will give it a good wash with the triple detox shampoo, and I’m instantly back to healthy, happy hair!

Seriously, put this shampoo into your hair care rotation and you won’t be sorry!

    I’m still loving the Pantene charcoal shampoo you recommended! It gets all the volumizing mousse and hairspray out! I still haven’t found success with perfect hair day’s dry shampoo. Do you use it at night before you go to bed or when you wake up? I’ve also read that you should blow dry afterward to “set” the shampoo? Every time I use it my hair still looks oily but with the residue, looks like I have dandruff? Help!

      Amelia! Oh my gosh yes, I LOVE that Pantene shampoo and have repurchased it as well! Such a good find and I love that it doesn’t have any of the bad stuff!! Living Proof is another favorite! I use their dry shampoo every single day!
