Shampooing your hair seems so basic, but there’s actually more to it than you think. I’m going to give you the 5 perfect steps to a good a shampoo.
Step 1 Brush it out. Before getting in the shower or tub, brush your hair out. This will help break up styling products, which will make it easier for shampoo to do its job. Also you will experience less hair in your drain by doing this.
Step 2 Detangle the easy way. For tangle prone hair, shampooing can be a pain in the rear. So what’s a girl to do? Get rid of the knots before hand. I recommend using the Wella oil to help get the knots out. Apply 1-2 pumps of oil and comb thru, then follow up with your stylists prescribed shampoo.
Step 3 Saturate with water. If your hair isn’t completely wet , your shampoo won’t be as effective. Sounds like common sense but I can’t tell you how many times we see people with clean hair on top and they have missed the underneath completely.
Step 4 Do Not Pile your hair. Piling your hair up means your shampoo won’t go to where it needs to the most. Your scalp! Apply shampoo to your scalp first & massage & lather. The suds should travel down to the rest of your hair.
Step 5 Rinse Thoroughly. A common issue is way too much shampoo is used and it doesn’t get rinsed properly. Any residual shampoo will leave hair flat and can actually attract more dirt. For best results rinse for a few minutes and separate your hair in the back where it’s the thickest to make it easier.
Don’t forget to add conditioner after all of that. It is so important. Apply on the ends and work your way up. The scalp is the last place that needs conditioning. The ends are more thirsty. Happy shampooing!
