A deep cleansing shampoo (technical shampoo) is a special type of shampoo designed to remove heavy dirt and residues from hair care products that can accumulate due to regular use and styling. Deep cleansing shampoo can be used as a preparation for hair care procedures such as keratin straightening, Botox, hair coloring, or others. It will help prepare hair for cosmetic procedures, providing better results.

You can buy a professional deep cleansing shampoo for use before keratin, Botox, nanoplasty, coloring, and other procedures right now on the ZAYA store website. Technical shampoos on our website are represented by a large number of brands, such as Natureza, Wennoz, Max Blowout, Deeply, and many others. 

Deep cleansing shampoo: what is it for?

Deep cleansing shampoo effectively removes residues of gels, varnishes, mousses, waxes, and other styling products that can make hair heavy and uncontrollable. This is especially important for those who regularly use styling products. In addition, shampoo can help remove residual chlorine and salts that can negatively affect the condition of the hair. This is useful especially if you swim in a pool or live in a region with salt water.

Conventional shampoos can contain various chemical components, such as parabens, silicones, oils, and salts, which can accumulate on the hair and affect its health. SHO helps to effectively wash out these residues. The product helps to remove dead skin particles from the scalp and hair, which improves blood microcirculation in the hair follicles and promotes hair growth. Using a deep cleansing shampoo helps to improve the condition of the hair and scalp, contributing to their restoration and strengthening.

It is generally recommended to use a deep cleansing shampoo once every two to three weeks, but this may depend on individual needs and hair condition. It is important to use it with caution as it can be a little more aggressive than regular shampoos.

The best budget shampoos for deep cleansing

The Deeply brand offers a wide range of deep cleansing shampoos with different pH levels for different hair types and scalp conditions. Here is a brief information about each of them:

  • Deeply Soft Cleansing Shampoo (mild, 6.5 pH): This shampoo is designed for fine, damaged and colored hair with damage. It has a low pH level (6.5), which makes it mild and makes it possible to take care of very sensitive hair. It is used before reconstruction procedures, such as keratin straightening or Botox. Not suitable for natural, thick hair with minimal damage.
  • Deeply Medium Cleansing Shampoo (medium, 7.3 pH): This shampoo has a medium pH (7.3) and is suitable for all hair types. It effectively cleanses the hair from styling residues and prepares it for further restoration procedures. It is important to avoid getting a large amount of shampoo on the skin.
  • Deeply Hardcore Cleansing Shampoo (hard, 8.0 pH): This technical shampoo has the highest pH level (8.0) among the Deeply product line and is designed for natural, thick, ethnic hair with minimal damage. It effectively removes styling residues and deeply cleanses hair before salon procedures. Not suitable for thin, damaged hair.

It is important to note that these Deeply shampoos are intended for professional use and are not recommended for home hair and scalp care. The choice of a suitable shampoo should be made based on your hair type and scalp condition.

How to use a deep cleansing shampoo at home?

A deep cleansing shampoo (DCS) can be used at home, but you should be careful to follow certain steps to achieve the best results. Here are a few tips for using a DEO at home:

  1. Always read the instructions on the deep cleansing shampoo package carefully, as well as the manufacturer's recommendations. Make sure the product is suitable for your hair type and scalp condition.
  2. Wet your hair with water before applying the SHO. This will help to make the shampoo more evenly distributed.
  3. Apply the shampoo to your hair and scalp. Massage your hair and scalp thoroughly, paying special attention to areas with residual styling or other products.
  4. Gently massage the scalp to help the deep cleansing shampoo remove dirt and residue from the hair and scalp.
  5. Leave the shampoo on your hair and scalp for the recommended time from the manufacturer. This is usually 3-5 minutes.
  6. Rinse off the deep cleansing shampoo thoroughly with water. Make sure all shampoo residue is completely removed.

Deep cleansing shampoo should not be used daily. Use it once every two to three weeks or as recommended by the manufacturer. It is important to consider how your hair reacts to the SHO. If it becomes dry or brittle, you should reduce the frequency of use.

Remember that the choice of SHO should be appropriate for your hair type and scalp condition. If you are not sure, consult a specialist or hair care professional.
