    I have greasy roots so I find I have to use a sulfate shampoo to rid the oilies 🙁 Do you use a clarifying shampoo?

      I don’t use a specific clarifying shampoo, but generally apply Apple Cider Vinegar. I pour some in a spray bottle, add some water, then apply to my scalp/hair in the shower. As you can imagine, the scent is not pleasant, but it does the job for a more natural alternative. If I try any brands in the near future, I’ll be sure to share my feedback.
