I must confess. I shampoo my hair with shampoo. Well, no real confession. I have always been upfront about it here on this blog.
People often ask me though what is the reason that curly girls should use shampoo with no lather.
The answer, your curls are probably dry enough. The curlier your hair, the more moisture you probably need to replace. Shampooing with traditional shampoo can dry hair out even more. But conditioner, that’s a more loving thing for your hair. So why not just wash your hair with it?
My favorite cleansing conditioner is the As I Am Coconut Cowash.
As with everything there are exceptions. You don’t always have to wash with conditioner or no poo. I do shampoo frequently, but it is drying. So how can you safely shampoo. First off, use a shampoo specifically formulated for your curls or waves.
Second, stop washing so frequently. Your hair does not need washing every day, every other day, and in some cases it doesn’t need washing even once a week. You will see a difference if you wash less frequently and use shampoo less frequently.
