Using a ShampooUsing a Shampoo

  • Use a simple cleansing shampoo to remove the built-up residue. Regularly alternate a simple cleansing shampoo after every two or three uses of a conditioner or a conditioning shampoo. This will ensure that your hair does not have any residue.

  • Use a volumizing shampoo but don`t use conditioner every time you wash your hair.

  • A styling product will make your hair stand away from your scalp, which creates the illusion of thick hair.

  • All conditioners (whether as a separate product or combined in a shampoo) accumulate on the shaft and can`t be removed by using the same product all the time. It`s good to use a simple cleansing shampoo after every two or three uses of a conditioner or a conditioning shampoo.

  • Tips to Shampoo

    Don`t shampoo every day, even if you use a gentle shampoo. Daily shampooing takes too much oil and water from the shaft, and gentle shampoos don`t clean. However, here are some tips if you must shampoo every day that will keep you hair in good condition:

  • Use a simple cleansing shampoo.

  • If you use a conditioning shampoo, don`t use a conditioner.

  • Thoroughly rinse your hair. The squeak test is a good measure.

  • Limit how many styling products you use to limit the amount of buildup.

  • Thoroughly dry your hair.

  • Give you hair an occasional rest from whatever routine you use. For example, when on vacation let your hair go an extra day before you shampoo.

  • Applying ConditionerTypes Of Conditioners

    Conditioner products relax tangles, remove static electricity, add body and volume, and moisturize. And there are 6 types of them they are as under:

  • Crθme rinse is a combo of waxes, thickeners, and a chemical group called "quats." It`s supposed to be absorbed into the shaft, without any residue rinsed out or else can make hair feel sticky. Using a lot of crθme rinse won`t hasten the absorption rate.

  • Instant conditioners act very much like crθme rinses but have different ingredients: waxes, oils, emulsifiers, hydrolyzed proteins, balsams with or without polymers. These conditioners coat the shaft - they are not absorbed. People with oily hair should use conditioners sparingly because their natural oils will be sufficient protection on the shaft.

  • Deep conditioners are products that should be left on the hair for 30 minutes, then rinsed out. They have thick emulsifiers, waxes, and oils and are effective for dry and damaged hair but have no benefit for normal or oily hair. They`re best when used a few days prior to a new coloring. Although a deep conditioner will repair the shaft, it`s not permanent and must be repeated.

  • Body builders are thin solutions of water and some kind of polymer, best suited for thin, limp hair. They will make dry hair drier and oily hair oilier, and can make normal hair dull and sticky. Styling gels and mousse are in these categories.

  • Hair repair are products meant to remain in the hair. They`re applied after the shampoo and usually require several applications to fully repair the hair.

  • Herbal rinses must be used alone. All herbs effectiveness is totally lost when mixed in a shampoo. For oily hair, chamomile, clover blossom, cornflower, and orange pekoe tea will make hair bright and shiny. Fennel and nettle are good antidandruff herbs.

  • And they are supposed to be used in the following way:

  • Add one tablespoon of the herb in 8 oz. of boiling water for 30 minutes. Later on strain and cool the solution. And pour the water on the hair and massage it into the scalp. Let it sit for 15 - 20 minutes. Thoroughly rinse over and gently comb hair with a wide-toothed comb.

  • Cortisone - a steroid you can apply as a cream on your scalp, have it injected into your scalp or injected in a muscle, or in the form of prednisone.
