Well folks, here we are again. Another week has come to a close, which means wash day is coming up.

And it's hot as hell, so you've been sweating. Outside is open (for now), so you've been putting hella products all up and throughout your hair before you head out the door. Plus, you know, you've been at the park, so surely the wind has blown some outdoor debris into your 'fro.

Thankfully, no matter how dirty your curls and coils may be, clarifying shampoos can get rid of it all. Consider these formulas a fresh start that you can use about once or twice a month (depending on your hair type) to get your strands in tip-top shape.

And since we're such a fan of them, we decided to share our five all-time favorite clarifying shampoos for natural hair with you.
