As we all know, washing your hair is very different for those with curly and coily type hair versus those with relaxed, straight and wavy type hair. For those with curly and coily hair, wash day can be daunting and it should be treated differently than the average routine. Let’s explore some tips and tricks for your next wash day.
Use a Moisturizing Shampoo
First step is to shampoo, but your curls shouldn’t use just any shampoo. Coily type hair is more prone to dehydration and breakage so make sure to use a moisturizing shampoo. Shampoo cleanses your hair and scalp but also strips them of the important natural oils and with coily hair, we don’t want to sacrifice those natural oils. Try our Deep Hydration Repair Shampoo which is free of sulfates and silicones. Our natural shampoo will help to cleanse your hair and scalp while also keeping them moisturized. You can also find it in our Easy Wash Day Bundle.
Don’t Be Shy With Conditioner
It’s no secret that when you have a lot of hair you need a lot of conditioner. So your thick, textured hair is gonna need all the conditioner it can get. Make sure you’re giving your hair a generous dose because the more smoothed out and silky with conditioner, the easier it will be to detangle.
Detangle in the Shower
Its extremely helpful to detangle your hair while your still in the shower rather than stepping out, towel drying, and then detangling. The easiest way to work through those curls/kinks without damaging their shape is to lather your hair up with conditioner and then while the conditioner is still sitting in your hair, working your fingers through and detangling. All that conditioner in your hair will make your hair lubricated while you detangle. Then you can begin to wash the conditioner out and continue detangling while it rinses away.
Lock in Moisture with Leave-In Products
Now that you’re out of the shower it doesn’t stop there. After you’ve detangled and towel dried your hair its time to grab some leave in products. Smooth out your curls even more and prevent frizz by using a leave in conditioner after you’re out of the shower. This will continue to moisturize your hair and keep it smooth. You can also use a sealing cream to really lock in the moisture and leave your hair nourished and manageable. And finally you also have the option to use a little hair oil, enhancing your hair’s luster and shine. Our Deep Hydration Repair Leave-In Conditioner, Moisturizing and Sealing Cream, and Wonder Drips Scalp Nourishing Growth Oil are all leave in products to enhance your curls on wash day and are packed full of all-natural ingredients.
