Giving your hair the royal treatment doesn’t have to end when you leave the salon. Choosing the perfect products, like those offered by ACTIVEÉ SALON PROFESSIONAL, can be helpful but it also comes down to using the right cleansing techniques. It may sound basic since washing your hair can feel natural. As tempting as it can be to rinse out the hair quickly, the truth is that taking the extra time to properly cleanse your hair can be worth it in the long run. To keep your hair looking its best, consider rethinking how you wash your hair with these simple tips.

  • To get the most out of your products, it’s best if you apply them to hair that’s just been brushed. Depending on your hair type, you can do this with a brush or wide-tooth comb before stepping into the shower.
  • Detangle any stubborn knots by spritzing them directly with a leave-in conditioner. Taking the time to detangle and brush your hair can help avoid breakage and stimulate the scalp.
  • Before applying shampoo, make sure that hair is properly soaked by saturating it completely under lukewarm water for at least a minute. This can help open the pores of your scalp and allow it to be more receptive to any products you apply.
  • It’s important to use the right amount of product on your hair. To avoid overloading, try using small amounts of shampoo and conditioner.
  • While your shampoo should be focused on the scalp, your conditioner should be applied only to the ends. You can always add more conditioner or follow up with a mask afterwards if you feel like your hair really needs the added moisture.
  • Do not to press your nails into the scalp harshly. Instead, massage your scalp gently in circular motions using your fingertips and a clarifying shampoo. You will get rid of build up a whole lot easier without hurting your scalp in the process.
  • Scalp massages can stimulate the hair’s follicles and help with removing dead skin cells. During cleansing, massage your shampoo into your scalp beginning at the front of the head. Start by rubbing at the temples in small circles, slowly working your way to the top and focusing on the hairline. Next, move onto the nape of your neck by placing both hands on the sides of your head and rubbing your fingertips in circular motions and gently using your thumbs to pull the skin upwards at the base.
  • Take a few extra minutes to properly remove any shampoo and conditioner out of your hair to save yourself trouble with post-shower build up.
  • The heat from the water in your shower can be to blame for dullness. To help keep hair looking its best, try rinsing with cold water. This can help close the pores of the hair, which helps seal in the moisture from your conditioner to make it look shiny.
