All About : Shampoo

5 Mar

Shampoo is a products that – believe it or not – is indispensable. If you seek healthy hair, it’s basically impossible to achieve sans shampoo. Yes yes I know that many people will argue that shampoo does nothing for the hair except strip it of its natural oils. That’s why curly girls must choose their shampoo with extra care and they need to remember they cannot shampoo their hair everyday.

Shampoo helps restore your hairs’ natural pH levels but curly hair is dry and the oil your scalp produces doesn’t travel down the hair shaft like it does with straight hair (which is why you don’t hear many curly curls complaining about greasy second day hair), because of this, curly hair needs more time in between washes to recuperate and actually let those hair oils do their job.

Sulfates are harsh detergents found in shampoos, face wash  and pretty much anything that suds. You know that feeling that your hair has after you’ve soaped it up? That feeling where your hair actually squeaks? Some people may associate that feeling with cleanliness but for a curly girl, that’s the worst thing you can do to your hair, that squeakiness happens when the detergents in your shampoo have sucked out all of the natural oils in your hair.

So you see, shampoo is that type of product that you can’t live without but can also cause major hair disasters if overused.
