We know curly girls love styling products but there is nothing worse than product build up in your hair that can lead to a dry, itchy scalp. Check out these great ways to avoid product build-up:
1- Use Clarifying Shampoo
Whilst regular shampoos are great for removing dirt from the hair, a clarifying shampoo is specifically formulated to remove product buildup. Opt for a clarifying shampoo once a month in your hair care routine, but if you love using a lot of styling products try to use once every two weeks.
2 - Apple Cider Vinegar Rinse
Apple cider vinegar is a staple method used to remove product build-up and dandruff from the scalp. Mix one part apple cider vinegar with one part water and use it as a rinse after shampooing. You can apply with a spray bottle or pour it directly onto your hair. Allow it to sit for a minute or two and then rinse thoroughly. Apple cider vinegar also helps detangle hair and close the hair’s cuticle, leaving it smooth and shiny. Use apple cider vinegar as a regular part of your natural hair care routine.
3 - Baking Soda
Another household item that works wonders for your hair! Mix two parts of baking soda with one part of water in a large bowl then apply the paste to your hair in a thick layer. Leave the paste to soak into hair for up to a half hour then rinse, shampoo and condition as usual.
4 - Use A Scalp Brush
Scalp brushes are a great way to distribute shampoo to every part of the scalp for a deeper cleanse helping to get rid of product build up, dandruff and dirt. Our O So Curly Scalp Brush is amazing as the silicone bristles flexible and gentle on the scalp, Shop Here.
