Washing curly hair may be a real problem especially if you have coil-like natural hair. Don’t forget that products designed especially for curly hair weren’t actually invented by marketers. Those who have naturally curly hair can feel the difference between using special hair care products for curly hair washing and ordinary ones. How can you effectively wash your hair for it to be beautiful and healthy? Find it out in this article!
- Use a special shampoo and a conditioner. Shampoo and conditioner for wavy or curly hair is not a trick or a marketing gag. The structure of curls is very different from the structure of straight hair (each tiny curly hair has an elongated structure, just like an oval in cross-section), they are usually thinner and more brittle. Despite the apparent volume of curly hair, there is less hair than it seems, and fewer hair follicles as well, which means the deficiency of sebum that they produce, so it’s very important to choose the right shampoo and conditioner that will prevent the appearance of dead hair ends and split thin hairs.
- After washing your hair use a nourishing hair mask to repair damaged curly hair. Naturally, curly hair always needs to be moisturized and nourished more than straight hair.
- Apply styling cream before brushing your wet hair. Buy a leave-in styling cream for hair fixation. For curly hair, leave-in products can generally become an alternative to traditional styling products: they don’t make curls heavier, but smooth and shape them.
