Best Shampoos for Curly Hair

For those with naturally curly hair, frizzy or unmanageable hair is a constant concern. Curly hair is often naturally dry and can also be difficult to control in a humid environment. Often, the best defense for curly hair is a good shampoo, and knowing what to look for in your shampoo is a great start. In this article, we’ll take a closer look at the best shampoos for naturally curly and permed hair.
Naturally curly hair is often dry because the natural oils that are produced by the scalp don’t travel as easy down the hair shafts of curly hair as they do for straight hair. The best defense is a shampoo that is creamy and moisturizing. This will help keep the hair hydrated and less likely to frizz, and will make the hair much more manageable.

Look out for products that contain natural moisturizing ingredients such as shea butter, macadamia nut oil or coconut. Thanks to an ever increasing amount of shampoos formulated for different hair types, looking for the right kind of shampoo for curly hair is easier than ever. Many shampoos for curly hair are advertised as such or for helping to reduce the frizzy hair that is associated with dry, curly hair.

It is important to remember to avoid shampooing naturally curly hair every day, as even moisturizing shampoos can dry out hair if used on a daily basis. If your hair is curly as a result of chemical processing, such as a permanent wave, you also need to use a shampoo that is moisturizing to help keep your hair hydrated. Chemicals used for curling hair can have a drying effect, so using the same type of shampoo as those that have naturally curly hair can have the same benefits. Just as using a shampoo every day can be damaging for naturally curly hair, it can have the same affect for those with chemically curled hair.
