Micellar water is probably something you have in your bathroom, and maybe you use it to remove makeup or as a light facial cleanser. It’s popular because it has tiny oil molecules in it that help extract dirt and oils, and is great because it’s gentle and hydrating for all sensitive redhead skin types. Micellar water is also no-rinse which makes it a convenient item to use on the go.
Did you know micellar water can actually be used on your red hair?! That’s right. It’s multi-use. Here’s everything you need to know about using micellar water on your red locks:
1. An alternative to clarifying shampoo
Clarifying shampoos are meant to give your scalp a deep clean. Regular shampooing isn’t always enough to get the build-up and oils off your scalp. Like a clarifying product, micellar water can be used to help loosen that build-up and remove excess oils without stripping the hair of hydration.
2. It’s sensitive scalp safe
One downside to some clarifying shampoos is they tend to be pretty harsh. This means if you have sensitive skin and a sensitive scalp like most redheads, they might cause irritation. Micellar water is gentle on the skin while being rough on build-up, which makes it safer for sensitive scalps.
3. Perfect for those with oily scalps
Micellar water is known for breaking down oils to leave skin clean. Just like on your face, it can help to break down the excess oils, which makes it great for those with oily scalps.
4. It can help with hair growth
Scalp health is imperative for healthy hair growth, and getting that deep clean of the scalp can help to promote growth in your red hair.
