If you are finding yourself dealing with frizz and uncontrollable curly hair, consider trying the no-poo or lo-poo method. This hair care method involves using only conditioner to wash your hair on a regular basis. Curly hair needs oils to maintain its shape and style, so shampoos which strip the oil away can cause every day to be a bad hair day. Switch to using conditioner on a regular basis and shampooing only once a week.
