To Shampoo or Not to Shampoo hmmm

shampooDid you know that your scalp makes natural oils that nourish your hair, these oils help to moisturize and keep your hair healthy and strong. People who have straight hair usually have to wash more often because it  gets oily fast.  However when you have curly hair the oils take longer to reach the tips because it has to go through all the winds and curves it the hair strands, this can take a few days depending on the person.  Washing your curly hair every day can lead to dry and weak hair, when you do shampoo your hair only apply shampoo to the roots! NEVER THE ENDS! Many people think that the more suds that you get while scrubbing mean your hair is getting cleaner, this is WRONG, actually the suds are the enemy.  The suds in your shampoo are caused by sulfates, sulfates are in

“90% of soaps, shampoos, conditioner, shower gels, shaving cream, facial cleansers, detergents, toothpastes, mouthwash, dish soap, cleaning products, cosmetics, lotions and other products that “foam” and “bubble.”-Lana Loketff

Do you really wanna use the same chemical that is in detergent and cleaning products on your scalp?! I don’t think so.. Sulfate has alcohol in it that dries out your hair and scalp, this is why your hair feels so nasty after shampooing.  An easy fix is to buy a sulfate free conditioner.  Remember, moisture is the key to healthy hair, and dry hair will surly lead to split ends!
