It is important to take into account several nuances in washing your head. First, you need to choose the right shampoo. If you have a fatty type of curls, do not use a shampoo designed for dry or normal hair. Getting rid of the problem will not help you, but will only aggravate it.
Therefore, always choose the right cosmetic. If you use a certain remedy, for example, from dandruff, then you need to apply it exactly until the moment the problem disappears, then use a normal shampoo.
Secondly, it is necessary to apply the cosmetic properly on the hair. Take a glass, pour a small amount of water into it and dilute in it 1 tablespoon.shampoo. Beat until a persistent foam forms. Then apply it to wet hair with light massaging movements( knead and rub ringlets in no case be impossible), leave for a few minutes, and then just rinse with warm water.

For urgent laying, it is also not recommended to use the above described tools. It is better to use thermo-curlers, which though have a thermal effect on the hair, but do not hurt them. The thing is that they quickly cool down, not having time to damage the structure of the curls. Yes, and to create a beautiful styling you will need only 5-10 minutes.
