Shampoo, condition, moisturise, seal, repeat.
That's pretty much the hair care pattern that most naturalistas are taught nowadays.
But, it sometimes feels as if every week there's a new trend that encourages us curly girls to change our routine or try something else.
Whilst, this isn't a bad thing, it can result in a girl feeling pretty overwhelmed.
Some experts claim that we should shampoo curls once every week, others say do it every day. Then there are the experts that claim curls shouldn't be washed at all. Yikes!
Can you imagine how it would feel (and smell) to have a head full of unwashed hair?
So, what's the real answer?
KISS: Keep. It. Simple. Sister.
Firstly, when it comes to your hair, you'll always get the best results when you keep things simple.
In other words, get rid of the complex hair regimens and find a quick and easy but effective routine that works for you.
Shampoo when there's build-ip
Secondly, there isn't a one-size fits all solution when it comes to shampooing curls.
However, as a general rule of thumb, condition often, shampoo when needed.
Condition, Condition, Condition.
Conditioning your hair (also known as co-washing) should pretty much be done every week unless your hair is in a protective style such as braids or a weave.
Shampooing should only happen when your hair is dirty and has product build-up.
If your hair is in great condition (pardon the pun), don't rush to shampoo it. Condition instead.
Trust me, your curls will thank you for it.
Now, it's your turn.
