Curl Interrupted

Curly-haired girls know that shampoo can be one of the toughest products for us to buy. Many of us have seen our locks get stripped of their natural oils due to unfriendly shampoo formulas. Ridding our scalps of product buildup, excess oil or dirt is obviously a necessity but our strands shouldn't have to suffer as a result.

Many women have opted to toss out shampoo once and for all, opting instead for a cleansing conditioner. That's all well and good, but some of these solutions are still not proven to not be effective for every curl type. Thankfully, many beauty brands have added curl-dedicated shampoos to their product lineups—making our lives and haircare routines much more hopeful. We've compiled a list of items that the curl community is currently obsessing over. Take a look and get ready to embrace your natural, bountiful hair.
