There’s a procedure you can follow to avoid breaking your hair strands while shampooing. Here’s how.
• Thoroughly drench the hair for 30-60 seconds before you apply shampoo – you will need less products, washing after shampooing will be easier on the hair. Rub a little shampoo between the palms of your hands before soothing it over the surface of the hair.
• Gently massage the head, but do not rough up the hair or pull long hair up onto the scalp- it will only cause tangles. Long hair will be cleansed as the shampoo washes out with the water.
• When massaging the shampoo, use fingers, not the palms of your hands. This helps stimulate the scalp and stops you from roughing up the cuticles.
• Rinse, rinse and rinse again. Poor rinsing results in dull hair and a flaky scalp, caused by dry soap flakes. Finish with ice cold rinse.
