Of course we all want perfect hair, but we might not all have the money to buy the best products on the market. By following these simple tips, you can make the most of your current shampoo and conditioner and shower your way to great hair.
Don’t Be Afraid to Mix Products
Can’t decide between the glossing shampoo and the volumizing shampoo? Use both. You can mix your products to get multiple benefits and add a little variety to your routine.
Shampoo like the Salon
Do you notice how clean your hair looks and feels after a salon visit? Mimic the way they wash your hair in the shower. Use some water to work up a good lather and use your fingers to thoroughly massage your scalp. The extra attention will help eliminate the oils near your roots.
Lose the Water when Conditioning
While shampoo and water work together to clean your hair, conditioner is to add moisture and manageability. For your conditioner to do its job, you should try to squeeze out as much water as you can before you apply it.
Clip it Up
While you let your conditioner sink in, it can be easy to accidentally rinse some out, especially at the ends. To ensure even moisture and prevent split ends, use a claw clip to put your hair up after you apply conditioner. This keeps your conditioner from being rinsed out early and lets you be a little less careful about avoiding the stream of water as you use body wash or shave.
As a general rule, rinsing your hair with cold water seals the hair cuticle and helps hair appear healthier and shinier. Since most people don’t find the idea of a cold shower very appealing, you can shower at your normal water temperature and only turn down the heat whenever you rinse out your hair.
Squeeze, Don’t Rub
As you dry your hair after your shower, use a towel to squeeze out excess water rather than rubbing you hair to avoid unnecessary damage.
If you follow these easy suggestions, you can help your current shampoo and conditioner do their job and easily improve the health and appearance of your hair.
