Curly hair, just don't care? Well, that might be true more often than not but you have to admit that taking care of curly hair can prove to be tedious. Curly hair is more prone to breakage, damage, frizziness and dullness as compared to other hair types. And sometimes it might feel like no matter how hard you try, you just can't get your hair to look presentable. That's why you need to know how to wash it so that you can retain its texture and bounce.
- First, you need to start with parting your hair into various sections and then detangling these sections one by one. Use a proper detangler brush to get rid of any knots or tangles.
- The next step is to apply shampoo (opt for one that suits your hair and scalp best) to your hair. Start from the bottom and make your way upwards and remember not to tug your hair too much or it'll damage your hair. Massage the shampoo into your scalp to get rid of oil or impurities and then rinse it all off with water.
- Once you're done shampooing, squeeze all the excess water out from your hair and opt for a generous amount of conditioner. Do not apply conditioner on your scalp at all or it'll mess things up for your scalp and hair.
- Leave the conditioner on for about a minute or so and then wash it off. Make sure you use an old t-shirt to dry your hair instead of your towel and you'll notice how it can help minimise the frizz in your hair.
And that's all there is to it. If you follow this religiously, your hair will start to regain its texture in bounce very soon. If you have rather thick and curly hair, you can wash it once or twice a week depending on how soon it gets greasy. For those with fine curls, it's best to wash your hair every alternate day as your hair has the chance to get dirty and oily much faster than thick hair. Stay tuned for more updates.
