I really need to share with you naturally curly-headed folks my shampoo for curly hair – that isn’t drying, and isn’t shampoo.
Last spring, I did a 3-part series on naturally curly hair. First, I whined about how my mom cut off my cherub curls as a little girl and some of the products for curly hair that I love. Next, I covered curly hair styling tips. And lastly, I explained the key to amazing haircuts for naturally curly hair.
I mentioned in my post about products and that I don’t use shampoo. I know there is specially designed shampoo for curly hair, but I find those to be drying.
Thankfully, I can *wash* my curls without drying them out with my Clarifying Rinse for Curly Hair that has apple cider vinegar.
The purpose of this rinse is to remove any product or conditioner build-up. This is the same reason I’d use shampoo but with this rinse, you won’t dry your hair out. Here is what you need…
Clarifying Rinse for Curly Hair
- 1 Part Apple Cider Vinegar, (ACV)
- 2 Parts Conditioner
- Squeezable Bottle
Pour the ingredients into the squeezable container. Shake well to distribute the apple cider vinegar throughout the conditioner.
Wet hair thoroughly and squeeze some of your homemade *shampoo* on your scalp and along the length of your hair. Rinse your hair thoroughly to get out all the apple cider vinegar.
Add any more conditioner to moisturize your hair as needed. Continue on with your styling your curly hair as demonstrated here.
That is my shampoo for curly hair – not shampoo but better. It has worked very well for me and my natural curls and I hope it works for you too.
