No girl with curls washes her hair every day because that will just end up making her dry strands drier, and let’s just admit it, hair wash days are tiresome. You need to follow a certain routine and use just the right amount of hair care products, followed by tools to make your curls look healthy and gorgeous.
What if we told you there’s a simpler hair wash routine for curly hair that does not require a lot of time and effort and still gives you the mane of your dreams? All you need is to add a few nourishing products to form the perfect hair wash routine for curly hair.
Hydrate before shampoo
It is necessary to hydrate your hair using hair oil or mask before washing it so your curly strands don’t get drier after shampooing. A deep conditioning mask like the TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Deep Smoothing Mask is perfect to use twice a week. It contains keratin and marula oil that intensely nourishes curls and coats them with long-lasting shine. It will also prevent tangles and make your hair more manageable post-wash.
Focus on the scalp
A lot of curly-haired girls have adopted the co-washing method. It involves skipping shampoo altogether and only using conditioner. Although this may work once in a while, doing this every time might leave an odour or itchy feeling on your scalp. Therefore, it's best to use a mild shampoo free of harsh ingredients to cleanse your scalp without drying out your strands. The Love Beauty & Planet Argan Oil and Lavender Aroma Smooth and Serene Shampoo does not contain paraben, silicon or dyes, just the goodness of argan oil and lavender to smoothen and condition your curls.
Conditioner is your curl’s BFF! Keep them close and give them enough time together. Curly hair requires a little extra conditioner, so don’t be surprised if you run out of conditioner mid-month when there’s still enough shampoo left. Take enough conditioner in your palms and apply it to the lengths of your hair. You can start detangling your hair at this step, so it’s easy to manage later. Use conditioner from the same brand and range as your shampoo. We suggest the Love Beauty & Planet Argan Oil and Lavender Aroma Smooth and Serene Conditioner for its intense nourishment.
Once you step out of the shower, use a cotton t-shirt or microfiber towel to soak up excess water. Then apply some serum on your hair to complete your wash day routine. It will coat your strands with a protective layer that will shield them from the harsh rays of the sun. The Tresemme Keratin Smooth Hair Serum contains keratin and camellia oil that nourish each hair strand and make curls appear happy and shiny soon after application.
