Whoever said that washing curly or fluffy hair is easy has not seen the struggle. From picking the right poo to mixing a pre-poo to picking the right deep and leave-in conditioner, washing natural hair is an adventure.
Long before you can ever begin to tackle those natural locks with a good wash, you must detangle first. Even with your favorite wide-tooth comb in your hand, the detangling process itself can easily take upwards of an hour or more depending on how much you dared to manipulate your hair that week or how long you left those twists and braids in place. Add the trials and tribulations of having hair that has damage or lacks hydration and you might want to take a pair of clippers to your hair and start that big chop all over again.
Jojoba, Argan, Coconut - what does a girl mix in her pre-poo and conditioner this week to achieve the perfect look of healthy hair? Washing hair is a science, there is an equation at work - if you miscalculate the level of moisture your hair has in place or degree of damage to those ends, you will be left with a wooly mess. You also have to recognize the signs of over-conditioning. If you have been over zealous in your application of the conditioner for the last few weeks, including sleeping with it on your hair, chances are your hair is rebelling. You know the signs; hair is limp, and you cannot begin decipher a curl pattern!
4 Keys To Wash Day:
#1 Finger detangle or use a wooden comb for less friction
#2 Know your hair texture - Fluffy, Curly or Straight
#3 Section hair into twist or braids to reduce contact breakage while cleansing
#4 Look for signs of protein overload - dry/brittle hair, excessive shedding or change in texture
