Desert Curls Studio founder Loni Jean answers her most frequently asked curly hair questions:
I typically wash my hair 1 to 2 times per week.
I do not co wash my own hair since I only wash my hair 1-2 times per week.
The key is to know what ingredients are in your shampoo and whether or not it contains a harsh detergent. Not all suds are bad. All natural ingredients will help gently cleanse your hair. I recommend using Innersense Hairbath.
When I pick a diffuser I make sure the inside of the diffuser is concave and shaped like a bowl. The bowl shape is good for gathering curls and drying efficiently. Most dryers do come with a bowl shaped diffuser but if yours did not, Conair has one that’s universal.
I typically use a deep conditioner about twice a month.
I recommend wetting sections of your hair to refresh, but not till it is sopping wet. Instead, slowly add water until you see the curl clump back together.
Silicones, waxes and oils can create a barrier and buildup on the hair which makes it impossible for water and products to properly go into the hair. If you feel heavy residues or adverse reactions to products, you most likely have build up.
Your hair can break if it lacks moisture or has protein deficiencies.
Hard water is caused by minerals in your water. Hard water can deposit those minerals on the hair and block hair from getting moisture.
