Are you shampooing properly?

Is it possible that all of us don't know the right way and may
be contributing to it's damage without knowing it!

Here are the steps in washing your hair the right way:

1.) Make sure before washing to brush out all the tangles

2.) Rinse your hair with warm water to open up cuticles

3.) Then shampoo, apply directly to the scalp, not the ends!
Shampoo will dry your ends out which will cause it to weaken and split.
Then rinse shampoo.

4.) I personally shampoo a second time. The purpose of the first shampoo is to
clean all the oil and dirt and the second is to let shampoo treat our hair.
Let sit on for a couple minutes and then rinse.

5.) Next, get all the excess water out of your hair by squeezing the hair.
Make sure not to pull or tug on hair because it is most delicate when wet.
Apply conditioner along the hairline and ends of hair.
Pile hair into a shower cap and let sit for 5-10 min.

6.) Finally, rinse with cold water. This will close the cuticles and
add to the shine of your hair.

P.S. I know this routine seems long but we don't need to wash our hair
everyday. It rids our hair of it's natural oils anyways. I usually wash hair every third day.
Having great healthy hair takes time and effort and once you get your routine down
it will seem effortless! :) Also, when doing a hair treatment, hair mask, or hot oil treatment
make sure to do this on one of the days your washing your hair you give
your hair a little break on the other days your not washing it!
