We’re back for post #2 in this series. I’m super excited to talk about Black Owned Shampoos because they are a foundation for natural hair care as cleaning is extremely important in maintaining healthy hair. Many naturals have ditched shampoos early on in the natural hair movement as they were deemed harsh and stripped our hair of it’s natural oils.
Not so as they have a solid position for several reasons. When hair is unusually dirty or if you go swimming in the ocean or a pool, they are the only way to get hair clean properly and ready for conditioning and styling. Whether you are a fan of sulfate-free or regular shampoos, check out this amazing list of our faves which are popular, work well and easy to find.
