5 Mistakes You Make on Hair Wash Day

Wash day is not always day we look forward to, but when in Rome…. You want to make the best of wash day.

Too Much Shampoo

If you purchase shampoo from your salon and still use a handful of shampoo when you wash your hair, you are using too much shampoo. Professional shampoo is concentrated, if you have problems distributing it through your hair, simply tilt your head back into the water briefly to add water. This will help you distribute the shampoo through the hair.

Wrong Shampoo

All shampoo is not created equal. Your hair type, texture, density, health, and color should be considered when using a shampoo and conditioner. Your hairstylist can help you pinpoint the exact shampoo and conditioner to allow your hair to look and feel its best.

Putting Shampoo and Conditioner on the Wrong Parts

Shampoo is for your scalp and conditioner is intended for the middle to end of your hair. Shampoo is made to clean the dirt and debris from your scalp. Massaging the shampoo into your scalp helps to keep your scalp healthy, and with a healthy scalp you are creating a great environment for healthy hair growth. You should start your conditioner at the ends of your hair and work your way towards the scalp. By the time you get to the scalp, you will have just enough to condition the newest and most healthy part of your hair strand.

Not Washing Twice

If you do not shampoo daily and use products on your hair, you should wash your hair twice before conditioning your hair. The first wash cleanses the scalp, and the second wash treats the hair.

Not Distributing the Conditioner Thoroughly

For conditioner to hydrate, strengthen, and / or protect your hair it must be on every hair strand. The easiest way to ensure even distribution is to keep a wide tooth comb or wet brush in your shower.
