Hi Curlies! Today’s post is dedicated to shampooing curly hair. Applying shampoo to my curls is my favorite part of my washing routine, as I’ll always massage my scalp.
Every time I’m washing my curls, I also shampoo them with a sulfate and silicone free shampoo. I like using a shampoo to get rid of all product residues, because I just feel like my curls can only get really clean by shampooing them. I’ve also tried only using conditioner and no shampoo at all, but I didn’t like the results: My curls started to hang down and feel «producty». However, if you feel like your curls need more moisture, I strongly suggest you to only use conditioner to wash your curls – if you do so, you can also follow my shampooing routine using conditioner instead of shampoo.
Now I’ve talked enough about whether or not to use a shampoo, it’s about time to show you how I shampoo my curls!
How to apply shampoo to curly hair:
As you can see in the photos above I don’t use a lot of shampoo and I don’t mind if I don’t get to shampoo every single hair. I think it’s important to shampoo the parts close to your scalp (if you have really dry hair, I suggest you to not shampoo the lower part of your curls).
Make sure you really give yourself a nice massage – this isn’t only good for your mind, but it’ll also clean your scalp and even increase your blood circulation. Be careful as not to rub your curls while shampooing them, as this will lead to a big mess and thus a longer detangling-time..
