Are You Shampooing Your Natural Hair Properly?

Shampooing Natural Hair


Are you shampooing your natural hair properly? How hard can it be though? Isn't it just wetting your hair, applying shampoo, rinsing and be done. Well, sorry to burst your bubble but that's a NO! 

Have you ever shampooed your hair but your scalp has white residue on it or your scalp do not feel or look clean? Well that's because you might not be doing this thing right. So how do you do it?  

1. First, choose the right shampoo.
Choose sulfate-free shampoos for routine washes. Shampoos containing sulfates can leave your hair brittle and dry - we don't want that. So choose a good shampoo that is sulfate-free. SheaMoisture and OBI makes really good moisturizing shampoos and Shampoo Bar, give them a try. 

2. Divide your hair in sections. 
Unless you have straight hair, shampooing your entire head all at once will lead to tangles, breakage, split ends, and itchy dirty scalp. Shampooing your natural hair in sections allow you to pay attention to your roots. 

3. Focus on your scalp, not your hair.
I cannot stress this enough. Your scalp is harder to get clean and really is the only place we should be applying shampoo to. Massage your scalp clean. The hair will get clean during the rinsing process. After all sections have been shampooed, rinse all of the shampoo from your head (massaging scalp as you rinse). 

4. And you are Done! 
Easy Breezy right? Go on to conditioning.

Hey Loves!

A few days ago I was very down on myself and needed some encouragement. My boyfriend sent me the following words to uplift my spirits and it did.  I feel like it will help some one too so please read below.

INTERLOCKING ROTATION | 2 Point vs 4 Point Rotation On Locs

INTERLOCKING ROTATION | 2 Point vs 4 Point Rotation On Locs

I always get asked about how do I interlock my locs and the rotation I used - whether its 2-point or 4-point rotation. Some people also use the term 2-way or 4-way rotation.

In the video below, I illustrate on my own locs, the difference between the two methods. you can then compare for yourself, if there is a difference between the two by looking at my locs.



Do you interlock your locs? Share below which rotation do you use?
