Detoxing your hair involves more than just making sure you’re using certain shampoo or conditioners. The first step you should undertake is booking in a hair appointment. Go and get those split ends chopped off with a fresh cut. This will make your hair feel SO much healthier instantly.

Next, take a look at your wet products. Shampoos often contain Sulphates, which basically work to attract oils and dirt to help cleanse your hair. Sounds great, right?
