With hundreds of options, searching for your perfect shampoo and conditioner can leave you feeling …..lost. Especially with curly hair.
Picking the best shampoo and conditioner for your hair is the foundation to the styling process so it’s important to have the best products for your curly locks. Here are my top recommendations for choosing a shampoo and conditioner for curly hair:
- Moisture is key: Naturally curly hair tends to dry out very quickly so it’s important to have a shampoo/conditioner routine that are very hydrating.
-Mix it up: Don’t just rely on one combo of shampoo and conditioner for your curly hair. Having different combinations of shampoo and conditioners will maintain moisturized curls, especially throughout the seasons. It also prevents your hair from becoming to accustomed to your products.
-Sulfate-free works wonders: Sodium lauryl sulfate is a key ingredient found in most shampoos which causes the lather when washing your hair. A lot of shampoos are now sulfate-free which is ideal for curly hair because it prevents dryness caused from this ingredient. The DevaCurl No-Poo Shampoo is one of my top recommended sulfate-free shampoos.
-Use salon quality products: Curly hair requires a lot of care to prevent frizziness and dryness. Using high quality products on your hair is important for maintaining moisturized and healthy curly hair.
-Ask your stylist: Going to a stylist that knows how to work with curly hair will make your hair styling process much easier. Most stylists will be able to provide several recommendations on the best shampoos and conditioners for curly hair, as well.
