1. use sulphate free shampoo
The golden rule of a curly hair routine: avoid sulfates at all costs. Why? Sulfates cleanse the hair and scalp but strip away oils. As curlier hair types tend to be drier (it takes longer for oils to travel down the hair shaft and moisturise strands from root to tip), using sulphates on curly hair can strip away natural oils, leaving hair seriously dry and prone to frizz and breakage.
Sulfate free shampoos are much gentler on the hair and scalp and cleanse without starving the hair of moisture.
