Co-Washing: Why Curly Girls Gotta Think Twice Before Using Shampoo


Being a curly girl can be tricky because conventional hair care that we are all familiar with doesn't
necessarily work for us. I don't like that "normal" haircare is geared towards straight hair, because there are so many hair textures and even curly haircare doesn't have just one method. We have different curl patters, different thicknesses, different degrees of porosity, and react differently to products. For example, my hair can be weighed down easily so even if my hair needs moisture, I have to be careful with oils and creams. Even though protein is good for hair, some people's hair don't react well to it and can cause buildup.
