We believe everyone deserves amazing hair, and in between visits, its great to know how to do this from home.
During lockdown, we know how important it is to have healthy hair for the benefit of your mental health, so we have some tips for you.
We all wash our hair at varying times depending on the type of hair we have. For some it would be more regularly than others, but do you know the correct steps to wash your hair properly?
There are more steps to the process than you might think, and we wanted to give you a few tips to help you take care of your hair!
- Wet hair thoroughly: Every strand needs to be soaking wet to get a deep clean.
- Use the correct amount of shampoo: if you are using a good quality shampoo, you generally don’t need to use as much as you think. For short hair, aim for the size of a 5 cent coin. For shoulder length, aim for a 10 cent coin and for long hair aim for a 20 cent coin. Distribute the product evenly over the scalp and massage in using your fingertips.
- Rinse and repeat: We always recommend shampooing twice. Why? Because the first shampoo is to focus on the scalp and to break up the dirt and oil build-up. The second shampoo will cleanse it away properly. Spend a few minutes giving the scalp a good scrub. You will find you will get a richer lather on the second shampoo, so you don’t need to use too much product.
- Rinse thoroughly: Making sure you rinse the final shampoo thoroughly will avoid build-up on the scalp. Spend 30 seconds to 1 minute rinsing.
- Condition: The trick when using conditioner is to apply it only to the mid-lengths and ends or the bottom two-thirds of the hair. This will prevent your scalp from getting too oily. The scalp produces natural oils and this is usually sufficient. Make sure you distribute evenly and use a wide tooth comb to detangle. We recommend conditioning all hair types from fine to coarse and unruly. It’s all about using the correct product for you.
