Is it better to wash curly hair at night or in the morning?

Having curly hair is, if you are anything like me, a blessing and a curse. It’s hard to brush, it frizzes with even the smallest drop of air moisture and you can never get it to be exactly how you want it to be.

But having curly hair is the best of all worlds because you can keep it curly and have it perfect or because of the texture of your curves, you can straighten it and still have plenty of volume.

However, caring for your hair is the hardest aspect of having curly hair. Here are some helpful tips to keep your hair healthy, frizz-free and smooth if you know about to wash curly hair at night vs in the morning.

Wash the hair less often than not. That’s very self-explanatory. The more we wash our hair, the more naturally occurring oils we remove, causing brittle hair that is prone to breaking off and causing frizz issues.

I once read a book on curly hair care that said you should only wash your hair with a shampoo once or twice a week, but you should ‘wash’ your hair with a conditioner every day.

I didn’t think this would work, but it does. Your hair remains soft and manageable, and you’re still getting the water to help deflect the curls daily.

Curly hair can be drier than using straight hair, and alcohol-free shampoo. There are other ways that many people who have curly hair preserve curls overnight.


Some helpful tips for taking care of your hair

Tip 1

Buy an Aloe Vera plant and peel the skin off the plant and stick in a blender to the inside. When blending is finished, pour the contents into a shampoo bottle and fill with aloe half way and shampoo half way through.

Using this formula for washing mane with Aloe Vera shampoo. Don’t wash mane every single day. Regular washing of the hair and scalp will strip away the natural oils.

Never wear metal clips on the tresses. Use plastic hair clips and hair ties when putting your mane up. This prevents breakage of the various hair ornaments.

Tip 3

Rising ultra-heat usage. When washing mane, do not use overly hot water, or blow dryers and flat irons after drying. These tactics will reduce the hair’s health and damage it from exposure to extreme elements. It might be worth considering buying a diffuser.

Tip 4

In case of extreme heat or cold, wear a cap or scarf on mane, as this negatively affects the hair by damaging it. When stimulating mane growth there needs to be a certain amount of caution.
