Clarifying shampoos are designed to remove stubborn build-up from your hair. They also help to lift away mineral deposits from hard water, and the chlorine and other chemicals that stick to hair
 in a swimming pool.

They contain fewer conditioning agents, and more cleaning agents, in order to clean the hair as thoroughly
as possible.

Tips for Moms: if your hair is wet prior to swimming, it cannot absorb any extra water (containing chlorine and
other chemicals.)
