Have you ever wondered if curly hair should be washed on a regular basis? Well ideally, it should not, especially if you are using a shampoo containing a sulfate. The use of non-sulfate shampoo and conditioner from day-to-day always gives best results. However, if you are keen on washing your curly hairs with sulfate shampoo, make sure you do not use it for more than twice a week. In fact, the use of conditioner will be sufficient for the rest of the weekdays.
Get a good organic conditioner and add moisture to your hair. Check if your conditioner does not contain silicones. You may, however, compromise with PEG as one of its ingredients.
Whilst washing your curled hairs, rinse them well with lukewarm water. Take sufficient amount of organic conditioner to cover your scalp and then massage your head with your fingertips reaching every possible corner of your hairs whilst removing off the dandruff and dirt that might have mounted up since your last head wash. Rinse again and then apply about 3 tablespoons of your conditioner on your curled hairs and comb them through the ends and the body with a wide-toothed comb preferably.
Leaving the conditioner on your hair for about 15 minutes, you may then go through the rest of your shower. After 15 minutes, rinse them with cold water to seal the cuticle, making it lay flat and leaving it shiny and less frizzy. While wiping off with a towel, do not rub or wring your hairs to avoid further frizzes. It is always recommended to use microfiber towels for removing off water from wet hairs.
Make the least possible use of blow-dryers and let your wet hairs get air dried since it casues heat damage to hairs. Do not even touch them when they are getting dried, to avoid frizzes.
