Welcome to Zulufita Shop,
the place where your curls are beautiful, happy and always taken care

4 simple steps to find out which curly hair shampoo suits you

Choose 
the right
shampoo
How many articles have you not read, how many opinions have you not heard about the shampoo for curly and wavy hair that you should choose.
Everyone talks about curly girl approved products, cowash, low poo, no poo, without silicones, sulfates, parabens and other ingredients, so when you have to choose a product you are in a big dilemma.
First of all, the role of the shampoo is to clean the scalp and hair of impurities. Secondly, shampoos must have another role, that of nourishing the hair and making it look as beautiful as possible and soothing scalp irritations. 
The truth is that not all shampoos for curly or wavy hair have the same ingredients, so when you buy a shampoo you have to look not only at what you want to get, but also at the ingredients they have in their composition. 
Below are 4 steps / questions you should answer to help you choose the right shampoo.
1. What type of scalp do I have? Do I have sensitive scalp, normal scalp, dandruff scalp or oily scalp? Think of it this way: the shampoo cleanses the scalp and hair roots and the conditioner is for the tips.
2. Choose the shampoo according to your hair type. Do you have fine hair, thick hair, straight hair, wavy hair, curly hair or damaged / dyed / chemically treated hair? Then you should know that the choice of shampoo differs depending on your hair type.
3. Determine the porosity of your hair because it also plays a very important role in choosing the shampoo.
4. Look carefully at the ingredients that are part of the shampoos, because the desired result has a lot to do with them. 

Shampoo for curly or wavy hair for oily scalp

You have identified that your scalp is oily and you have tried countless shampoos. You washed daily, 2/3 times a week and still do not get the desired results.
 - If you have an oily scalp but the tips are dry then you should choose a shampoo for oily hair and leave the hydration to the conditioner.
 - Avoid shampoos, which offer extra hydration. These will cause extra thickening of the hair.
 - Look for shampoos, which give volume, repair or strengthen hair. They do not provide extra hydration and help remove excess sebum.
 - You can choose a "clarifying" type shampoo, because it helps very well to clean the scalp. Care must be taken that excessive use of this type of shampoo could cause hair dehydration.
 - Try to use 2 shampoos. Use a shampoo for oily hair, which you can use to wash the root of your hair. Then use another shampoo to wash the rest of the hair.
 - Cleans the scalp very well and then rinse well. 
 - If you use a conditioner after shampooing, avoid applying the product to the root, but apply it from the middle of the hair down and on the tips.

Shampoo for curly hair. How many types are there?

Types of 
shampoo
for
curly hair
When we talk about the types of shampoo for curly hair we must distinguish between: cowash / no poo, low poo and shampoos of the "clarifying" or "purifying" type.
The difference between them is given by the ingredients they contain but also by their cleansing and moisturizing power.
The ingredients they contain are also important. Ideally, we should look for shampoos without silicones, parabens, phthalates, sulfates and those that contain as many natural ingredients as possible.

Conditioner for curly or wavy hair. Cowash. What is it ?

Cowash
means 
cleaning without
foam
 Cowash is a type of balm with cleansing properties. It does not foam at all and contains many natural ingredients. Because it does not foam, it does not remove the natural oils from the hair.
It is indicated for very dry hair and hair with high porosity. 
It can also be used by people who practice a lot of sports and who want to wash their hair daily, without fearing that it will become greasy.
But if you have thin and fine hair, this type of curly hair shampoo may not be the best choice, because it can leave your hair greasy and dull.
If you are trying this technique for the first time, it may take some time for your scalp to adjust to the new type of shampoo. At first it may even look more oily.
Try to use it first at least once a week.
There are pros and cons to this technique. Among the benefits of cowash is the fact that it does not dry the hair, acting as a treatment. Also, hair can be easier to style.

What is a no poo shampoo for curly hair?

No
foam
No poo curly hair shampoo has the consistency of a conditioner and contains many natural ingredients. Like cowash, no poo curly hair shampoo is recommended for people with very dry hair and high porosity hair. It does not remove essential oils from the hair and helps to hydrate it.

What is a low poo shampoo for curly hair?

Mousse
some foam
 Low poo shampoo for curly or wavy hair produces a little foam because it contains very gentle cleansing agents. Does not contain sulfates of the SLS type. It does not dry the hair and helps to clean it, it is indicated for people who have hair with normal or low porosity as well as those who have fine or wavy hair. This type of hair is easily absorbed from the styling products used. That's why you need a shampoo for curly hair with a higher cleaning power.

Clarifying chalk hair shampoo

What is a
clarifying
shampoo
If we had to follow exactly the Curly Girl method, then we should completely remove the shampoo and wash our hair only with a cowash product or other alternative methods. But many people, especially those with greasy hair, low porosity or wavy hair, have found that giving up shampoo is not the best solution for their hair.
If the scalp and hair are not cleaned regularly with products that contain cleansing agents, we may find that over time the hair becomes greasy, irritations, itching, including dandruff, occur.
Clarifying chalk hair shampoo contains cleansing agents, which do not attack the hair but clean it deeply. It is recommended for all hair types to use such a shampoo at least once a month. Depending on the hair, it can be used even more often.
Signs that you need to use a clarifying curly hair shampoo:
One) You have hair with low porosity or fine hair - hair with low porosity is packed very quickly from styling products, especially oils, creams
Two) You practice swimming - water contains chlorine or salt
Three) Your hair is lifeless, dull, dry
Four) You use oils or products that contain shea butter
Five) After washing your hair your hair does not feel clean
6. The scalp is irritated, itchy, dandruff or white residue on the hair
Seven) You have greasy hair even if you used a cowash or low poo product
Eight) You live in an area with high water hardness
Nine) The products you use no longer work
