Some like it dirty.
It’s no secret that day three or four hair is absolutely magical. Something comes over your curls and they just seem to spiral perfectly. Though we know that old hair styles better, there’s a theory that “dirty” natural hair also grows faster, which is absolutely a case by case situation. For some, a dirty scalp leads to inflammation, which can lead to thinning and baldness. However, other curlies swear by a once a month wash or less frequent shampooing.

Wash immediately. Don’t sip margaritas for five hours before washing your hair. Well, DO sip margaritas for five hours, just wash your hair before doing that. Read More…
