Every person has a slightly different hair texture than other people. There are slight variations in our hair which we should be mindful of when caring for our hair. Knowing the exact ‘blend’ of our hair texture and type goes a long way in caring for our hair the right way. There is no single perfect way to shampoo hair since variations in hair type and texture must be factored in. Regardless, use the guide below as a base guide but vary it up based on your particular situation and requirements.
Step 1: Wet your hair
At this stage, the key is to get your hair thoroughly wet. Shampoo needs to soak in to produce optimal effect. To ensure this happens, make sure your roots and hair are thoroughly wet. You may need to stand under the shower for quite some time to make sure your hair is wet enough.
Step 2: Choose the right shampoo
Since you are aware of your hair’s condition, type, and texture, choose the right shampoo for it. Most shampoo lines have special formulations to accommodate a wide range of possible hair types and textures. Pick the formulation that most closely fits your particular hair.
Step 3: Lather in your hand
Place a small amount in the palm of one hand. Rub together with your other palm and let some water mix in. Keep rubbing until you get a lather going.
Step 4: Work into your roots
If you haven’t already done so by this stage, turn off the shower. Rub the shampoo in to the roots of your scalp gently. Start from one section and slowly move your way to all parts of your head. Feel free to give yourself a head massage.
Step 5: Work into the rest of your hair
After you have worked the shampoo into your roots, gently pull your fingers back so you’re pulling the shampoo to the strands of your hair. Once you get to near the end of your hair, push the hair against the lather. Keep repeating until you have worked the shampoo through the strands of your hair.
Step 6: Give the Shampoo time to set
At this stage, many consumers make the mistake of rushing to the rinse stage. If you want your shampoo to medicate your hair or treat it in some way, you have to give it the opportunity to work its magic. Give it several minutes to cleanse your scalp. Some shampoos are medicated. Give them sometime to soothe through the outer layer of your scalp. This is a crucial stage of the shampooing process since this is where the deep cleaning takes place.
If you have slightly wavy or wavy hair, you can add quite a bit of volume to your hair if you scrunch it. Scrunchy adds a lot of welcome volume and gives an impression of texture to your hair. There are many different hair textures and hair types. Due to this variety, there are many ways to scrunch hair. However, the scrunch method below should provide you with a good start. You can improvise on it to get the exact texture and look you are looking for.
Step 1: Clean and Put Conditioner On Your Hair
Before you scrunch your hair, make sure your scalp and hair are thoroughly clean. Once you’ve finished shampooing and cleaning your hair, smooth your hair by combing it, make sure to take out any tangles, add conditioner to your hair. Make a part in your hair. It doesn’t have to be a straight line. It can be a rough part.
Step 2: Dry your Hair In Sections Using a Towel
This is important: handle small sections of your hair and press them against a towel. This is the first part of the scrunched look. You can avoid it by drying your hair section by section by squeezing your hair against sections of your towel. Don’t dry your hair all once. Proceed section by section. Don’t completely dry your hair. Stop when you’ve squeezed enough water out of your hair so it stops dripping.
Step 3: Mousse your hair in sections
Put a small amount of mousse in on both of your hands. Now grab sections of your hair and squeeze. Repeat the process until you have scrunched up all your hair.
Step 4: Apply clips
Hold small sections of your hair and use clips on them to keep them in place. Don’t make them look perfect and neat. Take random sections in random sizes. Remember, you are trying to achieve a ‘messy’ look.
Step 5: Apply Hairspray
With the clips in place, spray your hair with superhold hair spray. This should put buns in your hair.
Step 6: Take off the clips and undo the buns
Remove the clips and undo the buns. You now have scrunched up hair. To make sure your ‘look’ lasts much longer, apply gel on your scrunches. Again, the secret here is to do it in such a way that it looks messy and unplanned. You are not going for a perfect or uniform look.
