Can a good shampoo lighten your hilites?

I just ran across a situation today at the salon. I was performing a training with some

newer staff members with our shampoo process. As I was educating a client and staff

on how much shampoo to use, where to apply the shampoo first besides the habitual

top of the head glob, I learned that most people do not apply shampoo properly, nor

do they know where to put it first. So let’s do some education for all of you to help you

increase the volume of your hair, cleaner hair and scalp and overall better condition

of the hair by proper system of shampooing.

1. wet the hair first. If you have well water let the water run 5 minutes before putting

your hair under the water. This will allow the metals and any chemicals in the water

run out first then you will not have to worry about the well water build up.

2. pour the shampoo into your hand about a quarter size. rub the shampoo between your hands to break up the product then apply to

3. your mid lengths and ends first then your scalp. start rubbing in circles and moving the shampoo around towards your hairline. The hairline captures the salt, sweat and anything yucky that might be left into the hair for days. Hair will smell if not washed properly or often enough. Feel free to shampoo your hair every day.

4. rinse thoroughly. Add a quarter of conditioner to the mid lengths and ends. You do not need conditioner on the scalp. This is the healthiest area of your hair. Let on for 3 minutes while you wash your body.

5. squeeze out the water. When you are ready to hop out of the shower, towel blot until you don’t have much water left in the hair. Apply your leave in treatment or product asap so the he product will dry with the product in the hair. If to much water is left in the hair, it will weight dowb the hair.

Note: if you do not wash your hair frequently or two washes per shampoo session, the hair will tend to look dull and not as vibrant as when you had it colored. the sweat will turn the hair color to a yellow dull look. Smoke, sweat can build up on the hair by coating it. The sweat glands produce the natural moisturizer that will build up.

Keep shampooing! This will keep your hair brighter and healthier
