Proper way to comb wet hair (straight or curly) ( I will bring my mannequin head I used in beauty school to demonstrate)- After shampooing and conditioning you want to make sure the hair is damp. Next take a wide toothed comb and section your hair horizontally starting from the bottom up. This will keep your hair from being pulled out and will make it a lot less painful.
Instead of microfiber towels use this- Now we have plenty of these around the house am I right? I am talking about t-shirts. Did you know that using microfiber towels can actually cause hair breakage and hair loss. SO next time you get out of the shower have a cotton fiber t-shirt sitting next to you and use that to wrap your hair.
Best way to shampoo and condition hair (especially if it is color treated)- When shampooing your hair don’t use more than a nickel size amount and only focus on your scalp. Do not ball your hair at the top of your head. Use your fingertips to massage your scalp and work into a lather. rinse hair and let shampoo run down the ends of your hair. Make sure you use a shampoo with low pH balance such as the ones found in your salon. Next to condition only use a nickel size and this time focus on the ends of your hair. RInse with cool water to help lock in moisture and also to help lock in color. If your hair is color treated especially redheads wash hair 2-3 times a week.
At home remedy for red heads- Aside from using shampoo and conditioner that is made specifically for color treated hair, a great at home remedy to help maintain redheads is rinsing your hair with cranberry juice. YES cranberry juice. We have all heard from our parents be careful cranberry juice stains. Its the same idea for your hair. After shampooing and conditioning your hair take a bottle of cranberry juice turn your head upside down in the shower and pour the cranberry juice on your hair and allow the water to run clear before flipping your head back over (tip: do this BEFORE you shave your legs)
