How to shampoo curly hair
Curly hair expert Nancy Falaise shows us how to remove the buildup that’s accumulated since our last shampoo
Once a month, Nancy Falaise closes the doors to her Montreal salon to lead a workshop for young Black girls teaching them how to care for their natural hair. Falaise and one of her workshops were the subjects of the CBC short doc Nancy's Workshop; Nancy's Pro Tips features her best hair care tips and tutorials that didn't make the final cut.
What's the first thing you should do right before you shampoo? "Make sure your hair is really, really wet," says hairdresser and curly hair expert Nancy Falaise. In this episode of Nancy's Pro Tips, she provides a full tutorial on shampooing natural hair — from how often to do it, to the importance of doubling up, and why you should always start scrubbing in the middle. Check out the video above for Nancy's full guide to removing all the buildup that's accumulated since your last wash.
