How to: Rizos Reset! Let's CLARIFY!

One of the most important maintenance practices for healthy curls is clarifying your hair regularly. Even when making sure to use quality products, with quality ingredients, clarifying is crucial to keeping hair bouncy, healthy and vibrant. 


Rizos Reinas & Reyes usually wash 1-2x a week, allowing their curls to thrive multiple days without washing.  Overtime, you may begin leaving residue behind and eventually it will catch up and weigh curls down.  Clarifying once a month or every two months will solve this! Your goal is to get your curls back to square 1 every 30-45 days or whenever you notice your curls are limp and lifeless. RIZOS RESET!

Clarifying Salt Scrub 


  • ¼ cup of liquid Castile soap

Simple Clarifying  


  • ¼ cup of liquid Castile soap or baby shampoo 

  • Stir in enough baking soda to create a paste 

  • 5-6 drops of tea tree oil 

Follow the same application instructions as above. 


Bentonite Clay + ACV Rinse Clarifying 


  • Mix bentonite clay (like Aztec Secret) into water to create a slightly less viscous paste 

  • Rub into scalp and apply to strands, then let it sit for up to three minutes. Rinse clean. 

  • Dilute ¼ cup of Apple Cider Vinegar into water and pour over scalp 

Finish with conditioner on the ends only. 

This will help keep your locks healthy and thriving!
