Care of the hair and healthy growth of those tresses begins with simple steps likecutting in right and give them the proper nourishment and care they need. This includesright way of shampooing hair with the products meant for your particular hair-typeand conditioning and nourishing it so it looks glossy and healthy—and remains thatway too.
As hair is actually dead protein, it is necessary to keep it clean. Shampoos are designed to cleanse the hair and scalp, removing dirt and grime without stripping the hair it away too much of it s natural oils. Shampoo works with water droplets and lather to get between the hair and the dirt flakes and lift up grime particles,so they can be easily washed away.

Hair care experts agree that keeping one’s hair clean is very important. The way you shampoo your hair is mainly responsible for how it turns out when you sty leit. The right products and method of shampooing hair can help bring it texture and life so that your hair reflects your beauty and inner health.

Individuals with damagedor chemically treated hair should opt for shampoos labeled ‘pH balanced’. Personswith dry hair should avoid a clarifying shampoo, as it will strip their hair ofessential moisture. Instead, a deep penetrating protein rich shampoo with largequantities of herbal extracts will help soothe frizzy and brittle fried hair.

Personswith oily hair can opt for shampoos containing herbal extracts like thyme and sageto help control oil on the scalp and even the skin. These extracts help to purifythe scalp. Normal hair types can benefit from shampooing hair with products thatcontains aloe, glycerin, honey, amino acids or natural oils for moisturizing.
Shampooing tips
  • Always use shampoos formulated for your hair type―dry, normal, oily or chemically treated. Egg shampoo is good for dry hair but avoid products which contain alcohol as they will dry out the hair even further.
  • Before shampooing, brush hair and scalp to free any knots and to loosen dirt and dead skin Cells.
  • Use lukewarm instead of hot water to help in removing any oily residues.
  • Wet your hair then work a small amount of shampoo throughout the hair, gently massaging your scalp with the pads of your fingers. Apply the shampoo to the hair by first pouring it into your hand and never directly.
  • Apply with the hands and fingers, massage firmly in rotating and circular movements.
  • Pay attention to areas where makeup and dirt easily get trapped like the hairline.
  • Rinse thoroughly until the water runs clear. Repeat the process if necessary.
  • Blot the hair with a clean towel to remove excess water before conditioning your hair.
  • Gently dry the hair with the towel.
  • Avoid blow drying as far as possible.
  • Shampooing can be done as often (ideally every alternate day) as required to keep the hair clean and healthy, as long as you condition regularly.
  • If you shampoo regularly there is no need to lather twice.

Not to do…
  • Do not choose the wrong shampoo for the hair.
  • Do not wash your hair with soap or other detergents not formulated for the hair. They are highly alkaline and will upset your hair’s natural pH balance by stripping it of its natural oils.
  • Do not forget to condition your hair after shampooing if your shampoo does not have a conditioner.
