I’ll let you in on a secret: shampoo is not the devil. I know, I know. If you’re a fellow naturalista you’ve probably been told countless times about the horrors of shampoos and how they dry out your hair. You might only shampoo once a month to get rid of product buildup, or if you were really spooked, you might have done away with shampoo completely! Many naturals opt for co-washes instead of traditional shampoos to cleanse their hair and scalp because they’re afraid of losing the moisture from sebum or natural oils. The truth is, shampoo can actually be your friend if you know what to look for! While conditioners and co-washes are great for detangling and gentle cleansing, they may not always be heavy-duty enough to clarify your hair of the thick and rich styling products we’re piling on. Consider working a moisture-friendly shampoo into your weekly or biweekly regimen to keep hair clean and hydrated. Click through our gallery to find 5 shampoos that won’t dry out your hair!
