Did you know?
Cornmeal and or Kerosene was used by slaves as scalp cleaners? Can you imagine using something that strong to rid the hair of oils, lice, dandruff or any other product build up?
In the natural hair community we’re known for going LONG periods of time without shampooing our hair. (which I really don’t understand) Shampooing your hair is beneficial because it’s purpose is to cleanse the scalp of sebum and prevent the development of folliculitis and seborrheic dermatitis. We also use shampoo to rid the hair of styling products, sweat and or environmental dirt. Not all curls/ scalps are created equal so it’s very important to have a professional stylist and or Trichologist help you to determine the right combination of cleansers for YOUR scalp and hair. Your shampoo play a huge role in the beautification of your hair styles. Fight the urge to not leave it out of your regimen.
Remember clean hair ALWAYS equals healthy hair !
