Haircare Guide For Best Black Hair Styles
There are several sulfate-free shampoos on the market to choose from. Another option for cleansing the hair is to use the co-wash method, which is a method of washing the hair using conditioner. This is done by applying conditioner to the hair and working it into the scalp, as you would do with shampoo, then rinsing. This can be done either one or two times per wash.
When cleansing the hair, with either shampoo or conditioner, the most important area needing to be cleansed is the scalp. Cleansing the scalp is important because an excessive buildup of sebum or product on the scalp will result in the hair follicles becoming clogged, which can result in hair loss or stunted hair growth.
When shampooing the hair, the shampoo should be applied to the scalp rather than the body of the hair. Massage the scalp gently, being sure to cover the entire scalp area, and then rinse. As the hair is being rinsed the shampoo is travelling down the length of the hair resulting in the body of the hair being cleansed.
