Many things can cause buildup on your hair. I've had clients who've had buildup on their hair for so long that they thought it was their natural texture. While there are many chemicals, minerals, and products that can cause buildup, there are also a few ways to remove it. 

Remove Buildup at Home

The first thing you should try is an at-home treatment. Here's what you'll need:

  • spray bottle
  • vinegar
  • water
  • hair clip
  • shower cap

Fill your spray bottle with 3 parts water and 1 part vinegar. Spray the mixture on your hair until it's saturated. Clip your hair up and put it under a shower cap. Let the mixture sit on your hair for about 20 minutes, then wash and condition with good quality products. 

If that doesn't cut it, then schedule a Malibu Crystal Gel treatment with a professional stylist. On The Beauty Factory's menu of services, you'll find this treatment under Condition: Detox or Condition: Malibu Makeover. The Detox just removes the buildup, and the Malibu Makeover also includes an intense protein treatment.
