how to deeply cleanse your curls, coils, and kinks

Welcome to our curly hair routine series!  

Curls, coils, and kinks au naturel can sometimes be hard to navigate. Textured hair needs 4 main things to thrive: styling, strengthening, plenty of hydration, and scalp-care. We've curated 4 hair routines that are sure to give your strands a healthy dose of TLC and get you ready for hot curl summer (see what we did there?).  

Next up: the wash day cleanse curl routine – for the days you need to reset your scalp and give your strands a dose of deep moisture.  

why is a deep cleanse necessary for textured hair types?

Curls, coils, and kinks typically wash less often to maintain moisture. Over time, products can start to build up on the hair and scalp, resulting in strands that looks dull and lifeless – ergo, the wash day deep cleanse hair routine was born. Not only does it rid the scalp of product build up, but it also aids in switching styles often and going from protective to natural.
