At Delilah, we’ve built a reputation for being some of the best hair stylists for natural textured hair in Melbourne. Part of the reason for this (other than our killer curly haircuts and expert curly hair colours) is our ability to keep things simple, while bringing out the very best in your natural movement.
We have a passion for helping you keep your Afros in tip-top shape and condition. Read on for how we make this happen!
How to Care for Afro Hair
It all begins with care!
You’ve probably heard it a million times before, but great hair really does start in the shower! What products for afro curly hair you use to wash and condition is the absolute most important factor. We choose to use O&M curly hair products for afro hair at our studio because we believe it is the best thing on the market to keep your Afro hair in the best condition possible. O&M afro hair care products are:
- Sulphate free
- Paraben free
- Provides excellent UV protection
- Phthalates free
- Propylene glycol free
- M.I.T. free
- Triclosan free
O&M is Australian made and super hydrating for the hair. Plus, the price tag is very reasonable for their big bottles! We recommend a shampoo and conditioner (prescribed by your Delilah stylist) and a weekly or fortnightly O&M treatment, particularly if you need extra hydration and repair.
How often should I wash my hair?
Great question! No matter what products you use, if you over wash your hair you will damage it, and subsequently ruin your Afro. We recommend washing your hair once or—at most—twice per week. Always shampoo twice, and then apply a lovely conditioner, being sure to leave this in for a couple of minutes. It’s ok to rinse your hair in the shower and reapply your curl product everyday or so.

Skip the sun exposure and get those laidback beachy waves at home with a cream infused with grapefruit essential oil, French clay, Australian sea salt, lime essential oil and sorbolene.
