How to Take Care of Your Curls at Home

So, you have either had the Curl Clinic experience and you’d like to indulge in it for as long as possible at home. Or, you are yet to visit us and would like some guidance on how to care for your hair at home.


Whichever suits your situation best, in this post, we will be sharing 5 of our top tips for caring for your curls at home.



1. Don’t skip the shampoo


Times have changed since we had to scour the shelves, or the internet for shampoos that wouldn’t strip our curls and leave them feeling dry and brittle. Sulphate-free shampoos are more accessible than ever before, so this is what you should be reaching for first on hair wash day.


When choosing your shampoo, look out for “sodium laureth sulphate” on the ingredient list. You want to make sure that you cleanse your scalp well, and on a regular basis. As well as shampooing your strands to remove product build-up at dirt.


You’ll know that it’s time to shampoo your hair when your scalp feels dry or itchy. Your hair might also feel dry too. Your curls might feel weighed down. Or perhaps your products don’t seem to be as effective at refreshing them.


A good rule of thumb is to shampoo your hair once a week. So, if in doubt, start there and adapt as you need to.


2. Be sensible with your conditioner
