According to Allure Magazine, one of the biggest tips for maintaining your curly hair, is to avoid over shampooing. They even love Aveda Be Curly Shampoo to get the job done!
LAY OFF THE SHAMPOO
Hairstylists agree that when it comes to washing curly hair, less is definitely more. Shampoo as infrequently as possible: every other day if your hair is very fine; once a week if it’s superthick.
On days you don’t wash it, we suggest just rinsing with water. And when you must lather up, use moisturizing products that contain ingredients like shea butter, palm oil, or avocado oil. (We like Aveda Be Curly Shampoo—it contains a blend of aloe and wheat protein that retracts around ringlets as they dry to help fight frizz).
