Can someone help with recommending good shampoos and conditioners for 3A hair?
Okay so I am starting to really care for my type 3A hair and I also was stupid and accidently bought (with my own money) a shampoo and conditioner with sulfates and silicones in both so I asked my mom to take me to get newer and healthier shampoos and conditioners with NO sulfates and silicones and I told her the harmful things it does to curly hair but thing is she never listens to me she told me to finish the other two but I want to help it not hurt it. Anyone have tips to help my mom listen to me that would really help, Thanks.
well sometimes , sulfates can be helpful while also being harmful . Sulfates do strip your hair of natural oils that it needs , but it does make sure that your hair is completely clean . Some curly girls say that sulfates don't damage their hair , some say they do .So while I do agree that sulfates are really harmful , I would at least use a sulfate product once every 2 months or so . You have to figure out what's right for you .As for a nice sulfate free product , I would definitely recommend she's moisture! As you can see , their products are free of many harmful things like sulfates
Oh finally somebody with my hair type. I use Dr. Bronners as my shampoo about once a week, and then use a L'Oreal sulfate free curly co wash i\on my scalp dependoing on what my hair feels like in-between my shampoos. Conditioner varies, on regular days i use Argan Oil Renpure i LOVE this stuff its so cheap for the size you get and it has way better ingrediants than the organix. I highly suggest that if your mom is going to want to stay cheap its a good argument winner. On days where i want to look extra special i'll use my shea moister coconut and hibiscus, its a little more steep in price so thats why i don't use it that often. Hope this helps, unfortuently it looks like youre stuff with sulfates for a while so just cleanse your hair and conditioin extra well to help repair.
The best way to choose ingredients/products is by hair properties and not curl type (it's transient depending on product, technique, dewpoint, etc.) Here's a link to help you with yours http://livecurlylivefree.com/curly-hair-basics/ Once you determine your properties, go on curl talk and look for others with similar hair. See what they use and do. It's the best way to start.
