How often should I wash my curly hair?

Washing curly hair frequency depends on many factors. Especially, your hair texture and type. This can also depend on the hair products you use for your hair and scalp. This makes it even harder to figure out the exact washing routine your hair needs. But, you can use the guideline below as starting point:

Washing hair once a week:

Once a week wash routine is great for those with oily scalp. If your scalp produces too much natural oil and causes problems for you such as irritation or itching, you can wash your curly hair once a week. This can also be beneficial for those who use heavy oils or other heavy hair products.

Washing hair twice a month:

This is a great routine for those who use heat tools, diffuse, or just blow dry their hair. You are already removing moisture from your hair with these tools and washing more often is just going to make things worse for your hair. Wash your hair twice a month and remember to use a heat protectant when you want to use a heat tool.

You can also try co-washing your curly hair. We have a post about co-washing, don’t forget to check out this post: Co-washing: Everything You Need To Know.

Washing hair once a month:

What should I use to cleanse my hair?

One way that you can improve your hair and cause less breakage is to use a sulfate-free shampoo instead of a regular one. A sulfate-free shampoo won’t remove all of the natural oil out of your hair and scalp. This can be great for those who have dry scalp and need that extra oil and moisture. If you want to switch to a sulfate-free shampoo, take a look at tgin Rose Water Sulfate Free Hydrating Shampoo.
