Dry shampoo is one of those “too much good” things—when you hit the “too much” label, you’re dealing with product buildup and (probably) stinky strands and (probably) an itchy scalp. Whether it’s hair products like dry shampoo, hard water, or perspiration, hair buildup is something your regular shampoo isn’t particularly equipped to deal with. It’s like getting a butter knife to cut raw spaghetti.
This is where purifying and detoxifying shampoos come in. These shampoos give your hair and scalp a deep clean, using ingredients like charcoal, tea tree oil, and apple cider vinegar to remove the extra stuff that makes your hair dirty. Since these shampoos tend to use surfactants, you won’t want to use them more than once a week so you don’t dry out your hair. But it can be a supplement to your regular lather, rinse, and repeat cycle. Here, five of the best detoxing shampoos that money can buy.

Ouai Detox Shampoo – $30.00
This color-safe purifying shampoo is infused with apple cider vinegar, which helps exfoliate your scalp and remove residue. This balances out hydrolyzed keratin, which helps make hair smoother, shinier, and less frizzy. And the scent – rose with bergamot, litchi and cedarwood – is simply divine.
Living Proof Perfect Hair Day Triple Detox Shampoo $13.00
Detox shampoo contains what’s described as a “healthy hair molecule” that “repels dirt and oil” so your hair stays clean for longer. It targets three causes of buildup – hard water, product and pollution – hence the name. Activated charcoal and witch hazel are the finishing touches, as they absorb excess scalp oil and moisturize, respectively.
