After a hair wash in the salon our otherwise dull, dry, and faded hair get a new lease of life. I often wonder what wrong do I do at home that the result is dull dry hair even when using the same shampoo. The query led to intensive research and I discovered the follies that I made which resulted in bad hair days. The solution is here and hope it helps you to get cascading hair which can bring ear to ear smile on your face.
Choose the right shampoo and conditioner
The shampoo and conditioner that worked wonders for your friend may not suit you. Select a mild shampoo and conditioner that is free from harmful chemicals and is as per your hair type. There are different types of shampoos meant for thick, thin, straight, curly, colored, and other types of hair. If you have certain hair problems like frizzy, dandruff hair fall and any other then there is a solution that can cater you. Moreover you just need a dollop of shampoo not a large quantity.
Start with a quick rinse
For best results the tip is to first wet your hair thoroughly and then apply your shampoo that you have diluted with a little water. Wet hair will loosen up the oils on your scalp and open up the cuticle of your hair. Now gently massage the shampoo on your hair and scalp to remove the impurities. The massage will create lather around the roots and then move this lather to the roots. The hair is dirtiest at the roots so special cleansing is required here. Another fact is that the ends are oldest and fragile thus cannot handle much of lather thus you need to be careful there.No friction please
Love your hair even if they are full of grit, oil, and germs. The more you rub them the more friction is created and friction is the biggest enemy of hair. Friction in hair can result in breakage and hair fall.
Apply conditioner and serum
Conditioner is the key that works wonders for your hair. Apply conditioner on the tips of hairs and not roots. It is so as scalp releases its own oil thus conditioner is not required here. Detangle your hair with a detangle comb while applying conditioner. Let the conditioner sit for 10 minutes or if you have time for longer. Thereafter rinse your hair thoroughly (no residue of shampoo or chemical should remain in hair it will result in build up )from cold water. Never shampoo your hair from hot water as it can harm the hair.
The above four steps will ensure that you have swaying and full of life hair that shines all day long.
