6 great shampoos for curly hair under R120


Keeping your curls clean while not drying them out can be a hard job. Many shampoos contain sulphates to help them lather, but this can dry out your hair and is especially problematic if your hair is already prone to dryness as curly hair tends to be.

Personally, I try to avoid hair products containing sulphates, but here’s a list of what you should look out for and what exactly they do in case you’re curious.

But trying to find a great shampoo (or any hair product for that matter) for your hair while you’re in the middle of a busy aisle in a shop full of people can sometimes be such utter madness that you’d rather just get the first shampoo with a nice label.
