How To Shampoo Curly or Natural Hair

Shampooing natural hair can be tricky. 

Ever feel like you haven't completely cleansed your hair after a wash? 

Most women with natural hair, have thick and compact strands that makes it hard to fully get rid of all the dirt, sweat and product that builds up over time. 

During the shampooing process we tend to concentrate on the scalp more than the strands. 

To avoid this, apply shampoo directly to the ends of the hair and work your way up. Many of us were taught to apply shampoo directly to the top of the head and work our way down. By reversing this sequence, we will ensure that all build up is rinsed away for cleaner healthier curls. Strands that are not properly cleansed will break from continual product build up. 

 Applying the shampoo to the ends ensure that the product is evenly distributed throughout the hair. Rinse out the shampoo by following the same pattern. Start from the ends and move upward to the scalp. 


 Shampooing your hair using this upward motion will stretch out your curls, which makes them easier to detangle. 


  1. Great tips! Thanks for sharing. Take care.


  2. I have dreads, and I always concentrate on the scalp and squeeze the residual through my length. When I was loose I believe I did the same. Starting from the ends is an interesting concept.

    Thanks for the tip.
