A Step-by-Step Guide on How to Correctly Apply Shampoo

Clean, healthy hair care is more important than ever. While applying shampoo is an easy act, too much shampoo can strip the scalp of much-needed moisture, leaving it feeling dehydrated, irritated, and frizzy.

The proper use of shampoo to your hair is critical to ensuring that your hair care achieves its full potential. Mike (the owner of Next Level Salon) explains:

"We train our clients to evaluate their hair on a regular basis. So, instead of shampooing every other or three (3) days, get up every day and examine your hair in the mirror; if there appears to be an excess of oil, that's a shampoo day. If it's dry, there's no need to shampoo it."

Mike has provided us even more insight into our hair care advice. We'll go over this issue in detail below, as well as Mike's advice on how to master the art of good hair maintenance.

What is the correct way to apply shampoo?

The front part of your hair, the fringe bang region, is the most crucial. As a result, you should avoid using shampoo in that region.

  • Rinse your hair with lukewarm water to begin.
  • Apply the shampoo to your hands
  • Emulsify the shampoo in your hands by rubbing them together in a circular motion; this will assist to dilute the shampoo and make it more balanced.
  • Evenly distribute the shampoo by starting on your sides, back, and then finish on the top.
  • Finally, lean forward, and let the water run out through bangs.

What is the right shampoo for me?

"What shampoo is best for me?" is a frequently asked question (after all, healthy-looking hair begins with the first thing you put on it). While shampoo is commonly thought of as a hair cleanser, it's also important to think about your scalp when selecting a shampoo. Shampoos clean in different ways, so knowing your scalp type is essential before choosing one.

According to research, shampoo is designed to cleanse your roots more thoroughly than any other area of your hair, so if you have greasy roots, you may need a shampoo that is less hydrating and more cleaning. On the other hand, if your scalp is dryer or tighter, you may want a stronger moisturizing treatment. And on the flip side, if you have a dryer or a tighter scalp, you'll possibly need something more moisturizing.

That's why we recommend our favorite shampoo which is the Mane n' Tail. It has a micro-enriched protein formula that provides "down to the scalp" cleansing action without stripping natural oils, leaving the hair soft and shiny.
