Calling All Gymgoers: Your Kit Bag Needs One of These

Clarifying shampoo might sound like a bit of a no-brainer. Of course, you want your shampoo to cleanse and clarify your hair—that's the whole point, right? Well, kinda. But if you're a regular gym-goer, a hair product fiend or resident of a hard-water area (or in other words, any city going), there is a benefit to be found in giving your hair a really deep clean, and that's exactly what a clarifying shampoo does.

These shampoos have the power to peel away all the product buildup, chlorine, chemicals and general sweat lurking at your roots to transport hair (almost) back to its virgin state. Think of it like giving your car the full valet service, rather than a simple hand wash at the local petrol station. It's the full monty of washes, and the result is hair that feels lighter than air and almost squeaky clean. That's also great news if you're someone who tries to go as long as humanly possible without washing your hair.
