If your curls are high porosity, consider swapping your cleansing conditioner out for a conditioning shampoo.

Conditioning shampoos have added conditioning agents that not only clean the hair and scalp, but also add a layer of moisture. With a conditioning shampoo, you get the 2-in-1 deal; you reap the benefits of using both a cleanser and conditioner in 1 combined product that doesn't take up additional space on your shower caddy.

Men's Hair Blog says when shopping for a conditioning shampoo you want to pay attention to the ingredients label. Look for essential oils, they will help soften and moisturise dry hair. Try one of these popular conditioning shampoos in 2016 and see if you have softer curls by the end.
