Magnetic polymers act like a magnet by attracting product buildup and removing it from hair, while a gentle surfactant blend sweeps away pollution particles and sebum. A naturally derived chelating agent removes mineral and heavy metal buildup caused by hard water. Plus, activated charcoal detoxifies hair, absorbing odors and impurities.

Similar to all Living Proof shampoos, our Clarifying Detox Shampoo uses a sulfate-free surfactant system to gently and effectively cleanse the hair. Clarifying Detox Shampoo leverages a blend of unique ingredients to target buildup on hair, including: a highly charged magnetic polymer that acts like a magnet by attracting product buildup and removing it from hair, a naturally derived chelating agent that removes mineral and heavy metal buildup caused by hard water, a gentle but super-efficient, sulfate-free surfactant blend sweeps away pollution particles and sebum, and activated charcoal detoxifies hair by absorbing odors and impurities. Clarifying Detox Shampoo also differs in appearance from other Living Proof shampoos as it is a dark gray creamy cleanser that transforms into a rich lather.

What makes the science behind our formula so unique and innovative is that it’s an ingenious approach using a balanced blend of ingredients.Our clarifying shampoo is formulated with specific ingredients that work synergistically with our gentle surfactant blend to deeply cleanse hair without stripping — One of those ingredients is a magnetic polymer that acts like a magnet by attracting product buildup and removing it from hair. The magnetic polymer is highly negatively charged, binding to product buildup and electrostatically removing it from hair but without adverse side effects. Chelating agents focus on binding to heavy metal ions like copper, a heavy metal that’s often found in water pipes, and activated charcoal absorbs odors and impurities. So, while all these ingredients may be invisible to the naked eye, when combined, you get an incredibly powerful yet gentle formula that deeply cleanses hair and resets it to a clean slate.

Clarifying Detox Shampoo is a cream to lather formula designed to reset hair to a clean slate, keeping it cleaner, longer. * By removing everyday pollution, buildup, and heavy metals, it improves color vibrancy and helps protect against discoloration from chlorine. This balanced formula helps to reset your hair after a long week without drying out hair.
*When used with Living Proof conditioners.

Clarifying Detox Shampoo can be paired with any Living Proof conditioner or mask based on your hair concerns.
