How To Wash Curly Hair?

Since shampooing can dry out your hair, and curly hair often leans towards drying out easily, it is essential that you know how to shampoo your hair while preserving moisture. Follow the tips below to ensure that you’re on top of your shampoo game.

1. Pre-Condition

Apply conditioner or oil on dry hair 10-15 minutes before you shampoo so that you can minimize moisture loss when you lather up.

2. Dilute

You must always dilute your shampoo before you apply it to your hair. This will make it less dehydrating, and it will also help with forming more lather.

3. Be Gentle

Do not get busy rubbing and scrubbing your hair and scalp. Rub your hair gently in between your palms and use the pads of your fingertips to massage your hair gently.

4. Post-Condition

Although you did start with conditioning, it is essential that you seal the deal as well to lock the moisture in your hair. Since you are conditioning twice, it is important that you invest in a good one and lots of it because you’ll be running out of conditioner much faster than shampoo.

5. Air-Dry

Do not attack your hair with a towel to get the moisture out. This will create friction and dry out your hair more than necessary. Instead, gently squeeze the water out of your hair with a towel and then let it air-dry. If you are in a hurry, use the blow dryer on the cold setting to get the job done faster.
