After a day at the beach, you’ll go home with more than sand in just your shoes.

Your hair will also carry debris that can increase porosity. The longer salt water and chlorine—the astringent found in swimming pools—sits on your hair, the dryer it becomes. Luckily, you can avoid this by detoxifying your scalp with a clarifying shampoo after you swim to lift harsh chemicals.

These cleansers remove toxins better than regular shampoos, but you’ll want to air on the side of caution when selecting a formula because the potent washes also tend to strip your hair of essential nutrients. To prevent this, you should look for gentler versions that also contain natural oils to help replenish your hair.

Fortunately, you don’t have to look very far because we’ve already sourced the best clarifying ‘poos in the game for removing post-swim residue. Check them out below.
