We all make mistakes. Yes, even those of us with flawless hair.

 

However, the more we keep making the same mistakes the sooner that flawlessness will fade and the biggest mistakes a lot of us are making are hidden in the suds of how we’ve been shampooing our hair.

 

Fortunately, we’ve got a fix for every last one.

 

Mistake: Shampooing Everyday

Yes, clean hair is beautiful hair. But constantly cleaning your hair to the point in which it’s stripped of all natural oils, leaves you with a headful of tresses thats, well, anything but beautiful. Instead you’ll find your hair to be dull, weak and dry.

Fix: Shampoo hair every other day.

Shampoo Suggestions: Back to Basics Vanilla Plum Fortifying Shampoo. Natural proteins and detangling conditioners help increase elasticity and prevent breakage, leaving hair shiny, strong and resilient.

Mistake: Swearing by One Shampoo

When you’re continuously using the same shampoo you’re allowing product build up to form along the scalp and roots, in turn causing your hair to become rather apathetic and unresponsive.

Fix: Shake it up, for shine and body’s sake. Select a shampoo for your hair type. Use it for two weeks then switch to a clarifying shampoo for a week. Switch back to the shampoo for your hair type for two weeks, and repeat the cycle with a clarifying shampoo.

Shampoo Suggestions: Kms California has an assortment of shampoos for specific hair types, as well as their Hair Stay Clarify Shampoo, which removes dulling product and mineral buildup to leave hair clean and healthy, not stripped or dry.

Mistake: Not Getting Hair Nice and Wet for Shampoo

You like suds, right? Suds get your hair clean, right? Of course right! But the thing is you may not be letting enough water run through your hair and as a result using too much shampoo that will, you guessed it, dry out your hair.

Fix: To get the right amount of suds you’ll need the right amount of water, which is a lot. Just get your hair nice and sopping wet then lather in the shampoo and watch the suds appear.

 

Mistake: Applying Shampoo to the Wrong Spot

Most people fill their palm with a dollop of shampoo, rub it between their hands, and slap the bubbly mixture right onto their strands, which is the worst, and obviously wrong, spot to apply shampoo.  

Fix: After rubbing the shampoo between your hands, apply the bubbly mixture to your scalp, guiding it from ear to ear, the crown of your head to the nape of your neck. Try not to pull the shampoo through the strands too much. Keep your focus on the scalp.

Shampoo Suggestions: Love, Peace & Planet  Walking on Sunshine Shampoo (by Tigi). Apple amino acids, ginger and green tea will give your scalp the perfect boost.
