Tips: how to wash your hair

  1. Before shampooing hair must be carefully combed.
  2. Use care products only for your hair type.
  3. It is necessary to wash the head with warm water, in no case with boiling water, and it is better to wash off the balm or mask with cool water.
  4. Shampoo should be poured into the palm, it is desirable to slightly dilute it with water and only then apply to the hair.
  5. When washing your head, massage the scalp with fingertips, not with your nails, so you do not damage it. Thanks to the massage movements, the blood flow to the hair follicles will increase, the hair will receive more nutrients, and the oil and dirt will be better removed.
  6. If applying shampoo is not enough, wash your head again.
  7. When washing with shampoo (or other means for washing), pay great attention to the hair roots and scalp, especially the areas of the forehead and temples. They are the most polluted, and the ends of the hair will be washed out while washing the detergent. The balm, on the contrary, is more abundantly applied to the ends of the hair, so that they receive enough moisture, and the roots do not need to be applied at all, so they will stay fresh longer. It is especially important to follow this advice if you have oily or mixed hair type.
  8. Rinse the shampoo very thoroughly, the balm, on the contrary, can not be completely washed off.
  9. Use conditioners, balms and masks suitable for your hair type. The conditioner promotes easy combing and makes the hair more docile, balms and masks improve the structure of the hair, so do not use the balm and mask at the same time.
  10. Do not rub your hair, just blot them with a towel.
  11. Dry hair better naturally.
