How to Wash Your Hair

Before applying your shampoo ensure your hair is fully wet so your cuticles are open and ready for a good clean. Then drop a fair amount of shampoo into your palms first and then lather. When massaging your scalp, make sure you are using your fingertips and not your nails. The reason is, because there is a lot of bacteria under the human nail, that even with cleansers you can’t kill them. When it comes to rinsing your hair, be sure to thoroughly rinse it to avoid product buildup. Over time, if the scalp is not properly washed, the left-over residue can cause dandruff. Hence why we advise that you take enough time to rinse your roots.

Also remember NOT to shampoo with hot water. Hot water may feel nice, however it strips your hair of its natural oils, especially if the temperature is too high. This will leave your hair with no natural, valuable oil and leave it looking dry and brittle. Hot water dries your scalp, which can lead to itchiness and dandruff.

When conditioning your hair start with the ends and condition your way up so your tips have more time to soak up the moisture they need.

A rule of thumb: Your shampoo and conditioner work in opposite directions. Wash only your scalp, and condition your ends.
