My consultant Julia Stewart Stackhaus recommended that I switch shampoos and wash my hair more often. So, I followed her advice. She said my hair was oily (it is naturally) and that it still wasn't locked after almost 18 months. This is partially because of my texture. But the conditioners in the shampoos I normally use add oil which attracts build-up. then I would normally wash my hair only once every 2-3 weeks.
So, I switched from regularly using my Ganier and Aveda Sap Moss for Aveda Detoxifying Shampoo.
I loved it. It gives it a squeaky clean and now I wash my hair more often. It appears to be less oily and locking faster than it was previously.
I dry my hair with a super absorbent towel my sister gave me which doesn't shed lint at all. They are made by Aquis and leave no residue, water, or lint in your hair. It is perfect for locks!
