Is your hair out of control? Are you struggling to keep your hair from frizzing? Welcome to the club. There are ways to maintain natural curls, and we’re here to give you tips and secrets. Are you ready?
Have you ever wondered: “how often do I wash my hair?” The answer varies. But there’s one thing for sure: NOT every day. Absolutely not. This is because when you wash your hair daily, you strip essential oils from your hair, leaving your hair dry and guess what? Yup…frizzy. This rule is significant for those with thicker and curlier hair. Aim to wash your hair every 3-4 days. Some people use dry shampoo to freshen up between washes. Here’s a natural tip: instead of buying expensive dry shampoos (with who knows what kind of chemicals), use cornstarch or arrowroot powder. It absorbs both oil and odour and contains no chemicals.
What type of shampoo do you use?
Off-the-counter shampoos are filled with chemicals, toxins and open secrets. So, thinking that more expensive bottles offer your hair a better boost is wrong. Instead, you need a natural shampoo that doesn’t leave your hair dry. So, here’s what we recommend – and we recommend it because we’ve tried it…and we know many others who have too.
Do you want soft, voluminous curls? Do you want to save money? If the answer is no, then stop reading. But if you think like most of us, and are looking for ways to make your curls stand out without going broke and harming your health, then keep reading.
First and foremost: you have to wave your old shampoo bottles goodbye! Regular shampoos aren’t just bad for your hair. Using chemical-based hair products can cause serious health issues that may even lead to cancer development. Think about it: your shampoo comes in pretty close contact with your skin, eyes and mouth. Instead, a natural and organic shampoo uses ingredients that gently remove dirt from hair and scalp. You want to make sure you nourish your hair, leaving it shiny and soft.
You’ll notice and experience beautiful natural curls just by switching over to an organic and natural shampoo. One of the best ones out there is the J.R. Liggett’s Old-Fashioned Bar Shampoo made with jojoba and peppermint. These raw shampoo bars are easy to use and great for travellers. The best part is that you won’t even need to use a conditioner – and a bar lasts a pretty long time. No synthetic oils, chemicals, or detergents in these heavenly bars. This means that the shampoo will not strip the natural oils from your hair. And the formula is made especially for those with natural curls.
If shampoo bars just aren’t your thing, but you’re still interested in a natural alternative, then you have to try the Nature’s Gate Shampoo Pomegranate Sunflower. It sounds delicious, doesn’t it? The formula contains antioxidant properties to protect your hair from colour fading and environmental damage. In addition, it’s made from high-quality natural ingredients that will leave your hair nourished and healthy.
Enjoy frizz-free curls
When you use natural and organic shampoos, you’ll notice that your hair doesn’t feel dry. When you take care of your hair, giving it the ‘nutrients’ it needs, you’ll see that your hair is soft – this means you can enjoy frizz-free curls. Here’s a secret to keeping those curls extra bouncy: comb your hair rather than brushing it. And absolutely avoid hair products with alcohol and detergents. Instead, use organic and raw coconut oil or lavender essential oil. Even mix them together in a spray bottle to use for the tip of your hair.
