Is it bad to shampoo curly hair?
In other words, you should probably refrain from shampooing your hair everyday. Textured hair needs its natural oils to stay healthy, and if shampooed too frequently, it may dry out, which can lead to damage and breakage. For the best results, try cleaning it just once or twice a week.
Is it okay to wet curly hair everyday?
A good rule of thumb: If your curls feel dry, try washing less frequently. Washing your curls everyday can remove the natural oils of your curls and makes it difficult to retain moisture. However, that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t wet your hair. “Rinse and condition more often; shampoo less,” Hallman advises.

What is bad for curly hair?
Parabens. Known as the curly hair kryptonite, parabens are often used in beauty products as preservatives. Apart from causing cancer, preservatives have been known to compromise the integrity of the hair and scalp. Curly hair is easily frazzled and dehydrated, and using products with parabens will just make it worse.
Can curly hair go straight with age?
Throughout our lives, however, we experience biological changes to our hair texture. By diameter, our hair tends to become gradually thicker into adulthood, thinning again in middle and old age. These changes can impact curl pattern. The more perfectly round the follicle, the straighter the hair.
Is it better to not brush curly hair?
Curly hair breaks easily (I know, you get it — curly hair is dry and and brittle and you need to treat it nicely), so combing it when it’s not wet will lead to breakage and split ends. Your best bet for keeping the shape maintained is to use a wide-toothed comb while you condition in the shower.

Why do my natural curls fall out so fast?
Gravity. “Maybe the reason why curls fall or get looser is because of gravity,” she speculates. “The hair can also be heavy, as in high-density hair with thick strands. That being said, you can make your hair less susceptible to the effects of gravity by using lightweight products that won’t weigh you down further.
How do I wash my hair with just water?
Both experts recommend using lukewarm water —not scalding hot—for this approach, and then following up with a cold rinse. How often to wash hair only with water depends on a number of factors, including how much oil, sweat, dirt, and products are present in your hair along with your hair type.
How often should you oil curly hair?
As little as one time a week would be good but a nice rule of thumb to follow is to oil your hair the nights before you will wash it. For example, I wash my hair 2 or 3 times a week so the nights before I will wash the next morning are when I will oil my hair.
When should I shampoo my curly hair?
