11 Hair Products That Won't Cause Scalp Buildup For That Squeaky Clean Feel
If you ever run your fingers through your hair sense an uncomfortable residue, then you might have yourself a serious buildup situation. Products that use synthetic ingredients are hard to wash away and so they cling on — but there are products that don't cause scalp buildup that you can use instead to remedy the issue.
Just think about how many different products you use on any given day: Shampoos are rinsed through hair anywhere from one to two times in a shower, then a conditioner and possibly a mask are reached for right after. To style your locks things like heat protectors, mousses, gels, pomades, and shine serums are concocted together to get your hairdo just the way you like it, and it all gets sealed in with hairspray.
And if you're using products that contain silicone, parabens, and sulfates (which a lot do,) then they'll cling on and leave a gross residue on your scalp. If you're tired of your hair never being quite clean, then it's time to trade in your products for new ones. Ahead are 11 hair products that fight hair residue —from hairsprays to shampoos and conditioners, you'll be covered.
1. Neutrogena Anti-Residue Shampoo
2. Acure Clarifying Conditioner
When you flip over a hair product and you see ingredients like parabens, sulfates, and silicones, then you'll know that they will contribute to hair residue. Those ingredients wrap around your hair and are water-resistent, which is why they create build-up on your scalp.
That's why this conditioner will do the opposite — it's paraben, sulfate, silicone, and sodium chloride free. It's also color safe!
3. Organic Leave-In Conditioner
If you want to soften your locks outside of the shower, then this gentle leave-in conditioner will do the trick without making your hair greasy. It's made with a a natural infusion of natural oils, herbs, and flower essences, so it won't weigh your hair down.
4. Organic Whipped Creme Texturizer
Swap out your greasy and heavy pastes and pommades for this lightweight texturizer that helps you create separation and definition without the buildup. It's petroleum-free, and instead uses organic shea butter, fruit oils, and wheat protein to add texture and strength to strands.
5. Curl Styling Aid
6. Park Ave Blow Out Balm
If you like to blow out your hair perfectly straight, then you'll know how quickly your hair can buildup when using protective sprays and creams. But this blow out balm coats the hair without weighing it down thanks to its formula that has no parabens, sulfates, mineral oils, and petrolatum.
7. Flexible Hairspray
8. Apple Cider Shampoo
9. Cleansing Foam Conditioner
10. Organic Styling Gel
11. Smoothing Oil
If you like to have a silky, shiny hair, then you'll know that after a day your hair is heavy with product and not as clean as it should be. To help you avoid that, use a serum that doesn't use mineral oils like this one. Instead it uses argan and jojoba oil to bring sleekness to your locks.
Trade some of your old products for these upgrades and your hair will be squeaky clean rather than weighed down by gross residue. It'll be a total game changer!
