Although both products are designed to get rid of buildup, they are both designed to get rid of different types of buildup. A chelating shampoo rids the hair of calcium and mineral buildup and a clarifying shampoo rids the hair of product (usually silicone based) buildup.

So, how do you get calcium buildup?
You can get calcium buildup from products with milk protein and No-Lye relaxers.

What about product buildup?
You can get product buildup from products that have silicone, petroleum, or mineral oil in it. Don't be fooled by different names for these things! Mineral oil is also called paraffin and petroleum is also called petrolatum. An ingredient with -cone in the word is a silicone!

Okay, can you use a chelating shampoo to get rid of all the buildup including product buildup?
Well, I've heard that you should use each shampoo if you have a problem with what the shampoos are made for. I've been using ORS Chelating to clean my hair of all the gunk and it's been working for me. But as you know, hair differs on each head so what works for me might not work for others.

Clarifying shampoo: Suave Daily Clarifying Shampoo for Normal to Oily Hair
Chelating shampoo: Organic Root Stimulator Chelating Shampoo

Great info. I clarify every wash but I have not used a chelating shampoo. Do you think it will work on hard water calcium deposit on the hair?

If it's the chelating shampoo you're talking about, it should work on calcium deposits on the hair.

Just saw an episode of Look-A-Like on TV Guide Channel and the guy that does the hair says that chelating shampoos DO remove hard-water buildup, such as calcium and, I think he said copper, as well.

On the other hand, the quality level of today's cheap Breitling Navitimer Professional watches is outstanding. The Chrono Superocean is done at such a level that for example, the solid Superocean engravings or the qualities of the magnifying date glass are copied to perfection. It may be hard to believe that such a high quality can be found on Chronomat B01 but now you can use the expression of a genuine high-quality replica.
