Let’s be honest, shampoos and Afro hair in any state are not a fun mix. Shampoos leave my hair and many other Afro people with all texture’s hair dry. I feel like I put my hair in an oven and it came out as straw or fried noodles. Not cute
So here are the Top Ten Moisturizing shampoos any Afro person should consider using. Some are not categorized as shampoos but all natural remedies/cleansing conditioner. But as long as it does it’s job no fuss in my book!
Hit me up
1. Apple Cider vinegar
I know right Vinegar? Don’t worry you won’t smell like the base of some salad dressing, the smell goes away and gets rid of the build up in your hair. Also it makes your hair easier to detangle as well as leaving a beautiful shine. When using you can ether use it with a cleansing conditioner or a moisturizing conditioner. Two cups of cold water to dilute the mixture. Remember to rinse with cold water to close your hair cuticles and help the shine and tangles. Here’s a video And one more
