1. Always brush your hair before shampooing it.
Washing your hair when it’s full of knots will simply create more knots
and make it harder to untangle.
Washing knot-free hair will be both easier and more effective.
2. If your hair is dry or if you are a fan of styling products or dry shampoos,
Huile de Leonor Greyl as a pre shampoo treatment will be your best ally.
Your locks will be easier to untangle and deeply hydrated. Oils can be left on overnight
or all day.
Beyond that, oils oxidize upon air exposure, so it is not recommended.
3. It’s essential to regularly clean your hair appliances.
Dust on your hairbrush would dull the natural shine of your hair and make it heavy.
Plus, the brush you use for detangling your hair
– a flat boar bristle brush – should not be the same as the one you use for blow-drying – a round brush.
4. Always select your shampoo depending on your scalp’s condition, not your length and ends.
Beware of shampoos that generate lots of foam as they often strip hair of its natural oils
and may irritate the scalp.
A shampoo does not need to lather a lot to be effective.
5. There is no need to shampoo your length and ends, at risk of damaging them.
Use shampoo to wash your scalp, the foam will run down the rest of your hair
as you rinse it, therefore gently cleaning it.
6. If you wash your hair frequently, every day or every other day, you should only shampoo once.
Otherwise, two successive shampoos are recommended, especially if you live in the city.
7. You should take at least three minutes to properly wash your hair.
Ensure it’s thoroughly wet, then apply a small amount of shampoo on the roots.
Massage onto the scalp then add a little more water.
When a fine lather forms, rinse until your hair is squeaky clean.
The massaging brush is a great tool to help you shampoo.
Scalp hygiene is essential to hair growth so shampoo at least once or twice a week.
Less, your bulb will no longer be well oxygenated, and your hair may fall out.
8. Select your hair mask or conditioner depending on the condition of your length and ends.
Avoid applying it on the roots to maintain volume.
Do not leave your mask on overnight, it could solidify on your hair and lose some
of its hydrating properties.
9. Always adapt your hair care ritual to the environment you are in.
Climate and water quality are often underestimated influencing factors
on how your hair looks.
10. Never blow dry, straighten or iron-curl your hair without protecting your length and ends.
The damages caused by heat are often underestimated.
Use a small quantity of hydrating leave-in treatment before blow drying your hair.
