When it comes to cleansing the hair you can either use a conditioning shampoo or clarifying shampoo. Here are some of the shampoos for your hair;

When it comes to deep conditioning, always use a moisturizing deep conditioner on every wash day, a protein treatment when your hair needs it or you can choose a balanced deep conditioners that have both protein and moisturizing properties.

Balanced deep conditioners that will give your hair the moisture and strength it needs;

  • Once your hair has absorbed the deep conditioner goodness, thoroughly rinse your hair to avoid build-up causes by the deep conditioner. Personally, I prefer to rinse with lukewarm to cool water.

Always, install any style on moisturized hair. Don’t let your hair dry before moisturizing, applying moisturizing products when your hair is damp and wet, will keep the moisture locked in for longer and your hair will be super moisturized. To moisturize use a leave-in conditioner, for coarse and thick hair, consider thick creams while fine hair lightweight leave-in conditioners will be perfect. Lock in the moisture with a butter or oil and for defined flat twist out, use a curl cream.
