Does your shampoo only leave your hair clean? Newsflash! Dish detergent would also leave your hair clean. So if all you’re getting out of your wash is cleanliness, you are missing out. Or you are possibly doing it wrong.
You could get more from your weekly or daily wash. You could get shine. You could get volume. You could get definition. You could at least get great smelling hair. All of these possibilities and you are only getting cleanliness? Come on, expect more and you will get more.
So how do you get the most out of your shampoo? First – and this may seem like a common sense move – make sure your hair is wet enough. Your hair should be throughly wet. While this may seem like a no brainer, many naturals are still applying shampoo or co-wash to hair before it is wet enough.
Second, rotate shampoos. While some out there will tell you this is not necessary, I firmly believe it is. Right now I rotate between the two shampoos below. I find that each of them comes in handy for certain washes.
TRESemme Flawless Curls Shampoo is the shampoo I use the most. I use it for wash and go’s and when I am diffusing. If you are looking for shampoo that does not require you to break the bank, this is it. While some naturals do not ever use “real” shampoo, I do.
While I cowash also, I still believe my hair needs a good old sudsy wash every now and then. The TRESemme shampoo is not categorized as a clarifying one, but it definitely does the trick for me.
The second shampoo I am using right now is the Organix acai berry avocado shampoo. I use this mostly when I am planning to blow out my hair and straighten it. I reviewed the acai berry avocado shampoo last summer.
