Although most of us wash our hair every day, or at least every other day,
00:04
very few of us are doing it in such a way that
00:06
benefits both our hair and our scalp, so today I'm
00:09
going to share with you some great tips.
00:11
The first step, and we all know how to do this, is to wet the hair.
00:14
But one thing that most of us don't pay attention to
00:17
is the temperature of the water.
00:19
Let's make sure that the water is not too hot, as this can dry out our scalp
00:22
and make it really irritated.
00:24
But it has to be hot enough to be able to break down
00:26
those wax and scalp was more easily.
00:29
So let's start off by getting our water to around 40 degrees
00:31
Celsius, which is just slightly higher than body temperature.

Manufacturers add these cleansing agents to the shampoo
00:47
to help bind to dirt and oil that sit on our hair and our scalp.
00:51
Whatever we do, wherever we go, we'll always
00:53
come into contact with things such as dust and pollution,
00:56
and this can make our hair look really dull and lifeless.
00:59
And water on its own will just not get rid of it.
01:02
The lather is what binds to the dirt and the grime,
01:05
so when you rinse it takes all the dirt with it.
01:08
Now, when you're cleaning your hair, there's
01:10
something really important I want to talk to you about,
01:12
and that is the lathering technique.
01:14
I know you've been washing your hair for years, and it seems really simple--
01:18
but if you've been doing circular motions, I'm sorry,
01:21
but you're doing it wrong.
01:22
You want to make sure that you wash it in the same direction
01:25
that the cuticle points.
01:27
Another thing that I see is a lot of people with long hair,
01:30
they pile their hair on the top of their head.
01:33
This creates way more tangles, and this is something that we call bird nesting.
01:38
OK, so next up I want to talk to you about leave in

Very few of us realize that every single time we put chemicals on our hair,
02:18
we are potentially damaging it.
02:20
I always tell my clients to take at least one or two days off per week
02:23
from using any products at all, just to give their hair
02:26
a little bit of a break.
02:28
And if you have a sensitive scalp, you want
02:30
to watch out for any itching or redness that you may get from some products.
02:34
Just switch it up and see if that helps.
02:36
Another thing I want to talk to you about is product build up.
02:40
This happens when we don't wash the product completely out of our hair,
02:43
and it remains visible on the scalp.
02:45
And sometimes we confuse this with dandruff.
02:48
Wax in particular is quite tricky, as it's not water soluble.
02:52
So here is a great tip on how to get the wax out of your hair.
02:56
First up, just apply a little bit of shampoo to dry hair.
02:59
Only use a little bit of shampoo, maybe half of what you normally
03:03
would, and then just rinse it out.
03:06
Now that the wax is gone, it's important to follow up with another wash,
03:09
and just follow the same steps that you normally would.
03:13
I hope that was
