WASH IT OUT
How many days do you go between washes? Do you wash your hair every time you wash your body? News. That is too much washing! Not to get all scientific on everyone but the amounts of natural oils our scalps produce do not need to be cleansed daily. Washing your hair daily never allows for your scalp to produce the sebum (oil) it needs to condition and coat your hair.
If it’s been over two or three days between your last wash make sure to wash twice. To make sure you aren’t wasting your product, shampoo with a nickel size first. A nickel size won’t be enough, but as you work it in and rinse it out you’ll be able to get a better lather with the second wash. Using the same amount of shampoo for the second wash should result in more lather and more cleansing. I feel like what folks normally do is squeeze out a silver dollar amount of product and just keep adding more as they wash. So much waste develops from this. If you wash a few times with a nickel size of product you’ll get a better cleanse AND save more of your shampoo.
The sulphate free shampoos we carry are great for you and your hair. (Just a side note, if you’re not using a sulphate free shampoo yet you better get on it. I’ll talk about sulphate free shampoo’s another time….)
We have a cure for what your hair needs. Dry? Fine? Curly? There are shampoos and conditioners for every hair type, ask your stylist what they suggest. Side bar- if you have as much hair as a Sasquatch then turn the nickel size to a quarter or loonie… Maybe this up-coming week challenge yourself and eliminate one wash from your washing cycle and see if it makes a difference.
That’s the fresh perspective…
