Buy The Right Product

Don’t get carried away with advertisements. Research and buy a shampoo and conditioner that suits your hair type-whether it’s dull, dry, or oily. Also, don’t ignore your problem areas like hair fall, dandruff, or, roughness. Consult you stylist or hair care professionals to find the best product for your hair type. It’s best to leave the decision in an experts hand so that you get the most of it. Although, it’s not necessary, for best results I recommend to use the shampoo and conditioner of same brand as hair care products are designed in a way to work in harmony.

Comb Your Hair

Brush your hair before getting it wet. As tangles prevent the shampoo  from working properly and evenly on hair, combing will ensure maximum washing experience.

Use The Right Amount

It’s very essential to use just the right amount of shampoo and conditioner or I should say the least amount possible. Using excess of shampoo can make it difficult for you to rinse out thoroughly, leaving your strands looking dry and causing problems like flaking.

Use Warm Water

Avoid washing your tresses with hot water as it fades the color and sucks the moisture. Instead, use warm water and end up the process with cold water for that extra shine you always wanted.

Massage It Properly

Thoroughly massage shampoo on to the scalp for let’s say about 2-3 minutes and work downwards towards ends. Always go for two rounds of shampoo especially if you have greasy, oily hair. First round will help to remove all the dirt and second will ensure squeaky-clean hair. Only remember to use even lesser shampoo the subsequent time.

Apply The Conditioner

Once you have cleaned up your scalp and hair, conditioner comes next. Apply and let it sit for 3-5 minutes. There is no need to place it directly on the roots, instead, apply the conditioner 2-3 inches away from the scalp towards the ends.

Beautiful hair adds to our glam quotient and can boast a woman’s confidence to a great extent. Now that you have learned how to shampoo and condition your hair properly, do some favor to yourself and treat it with care.
