How To Pick The Right Cleanser For Your Curls

From moisturising, to clarifying and co-washing, picking the right shampoo can be difficult. The purpose of a shampoo is to cleanse and/or clarify our scalp and strands from dirt, sebum and the build-up we get from piling on products throughout the week. Our natural shampoos can help keep your scalp and hair happier for longer. You know what we say, happy scalp, happy curls!

Clarifying Shampoos

  • Gives hair that 'squeaky' clean feeling
  • It is recommended to use once a month (every 3-4 weeks) to give your scalp and hair a deep clarifying cleanse
  • Removes excessive build from the hair and scalp

Our pick: Soothe Me Coconut Mint Curl Refresh Clay Wash

Moisturising Shampoos

  • Helps cleanse the hair without stripping your strands of its natural oils 
  • Can be used weekly 
  • Generally cleanses the hair and scalp — but you will still need a clarifying shampoo to get rid of excess product

Our pick: Hydrate Me Rose Water & Honey Cream Shampoo

Co-Washes

  • Cleansing the hair with a conditioner based shampoo
  • Can be used as many times throughout the week in between main wash days 
  • Does not get rid of all the build-up (a moisturising, protein-based or a scalp shampoo is still needed)

Lighter protein shampoos

  • Gentler than a clarifying shampoo 
  • Can be used fortnightly 
  • Strengthens strands and adds protection 
  • Cleanses excellently without being too clarifying on the scalp and curls

Our pick: Protect Me African Citrus Bloom Superfruit Shampoo

Scalp care shampoos

  • Deeply hydrating
  • Can be used weekly  
  • Balances the scalp
  • Works well for either a dry scalp or oily scalp due to the APISCALP™ active that helps mimic the scalps needs 

Our pick: Soothe Me Coconut Mint Scalp Refresh Shampoo
