Curly Hair Cleaning Basics

If you're anything like me, you have tried numerous ways to tame your curly mane. Curly hair care starts with the cleansing process. Many curly haired babes make the mistake of shampooing too much, but curly hair doesn’t need to be shampooed very often. Frequent shampooing can dry out your thirsty locks, stretch out your bounce, and stress out your strands. You should go at least two or three days between shampoos. If you enjoy working out or if your hair gets excessively dirty on a daily basis, substitute by rinsing with water and adding conditioner. Cleansing conditioners are also an option.

When you do shampoo your lovely locks, you should use a sulfate-free or another mild shampoo. In this way, you can revive and cleanse your hair and scalp while keeping their natural moisture and oils. If you have extra dry hair, consider diluting your shampoo with distilled water.

Finally, after shampooing and conditioning your hair, you should rinse with cold water to close your hair cuticles. Invest in a showerhead with a hose to avoid discomfort! By closing your hair cuticles at the end of a shower, you can lock in moisture and eliminate frizz! A leave-in conditioner can amplify these results. A cold rinse after a nice, hot shower is virtually free! And other quality curly hair care products don't have to break the bank.
