Shampoo + Conditioner Tips

You should wet your hair for about 40 seconds before applying shampoo. Once the shampoo is applied massage it in then rinse.
Next use conditioner and leave it in your hair for a bit: DON'T rub it in, this will only dry your hair.After you're done rinse the conditioner off, and it will leave your hair feeling silky.
You can towel dry your hair or blow dry it.
Another tip- if you do towel dry make sure you don't rub your hair too hard because it will get damaged, sort of just rub it gently or just pat on the towel.

Shampooing Steps

Always use shampoos formulated for your hair type – dry, normal, oily or chemically treated.

  • Brush hair and scalp before shampooing to free any knots and to loosen dirt and dead skin cells.
  • Use lukewarm instead of hot water to help in removing any oily residues.
  • Wet your hair then work a small amount of shampoo through out the hair, gently massaging your scalp with the pads of your fingers.
  • Pay attention to areas where makeup and dirt easily get trapped like the hairline.
  • Rinse thoroughly until the water runs clear. Repeat the process if necessary.
  • Blot the hair with a clean towel to remove excess water before conditioning your hair.

Additional Shampooing Tips

  • Use the correct shampoo for your hair type. If in doubt, choose the mildest formulation available.
  • Do not wash your hair with soap or other detergents not formulated for the hair. They are highly alkaline and will upset your hair’s natural pH balance by stripping it of its natural oils.
  • Change your shampoo now and then, hair seems to grow resistant to certain ingredients after a while.
  • Whenever possible, buy small sachets of a shampoo to test and determine which one works best for you.
