- Wash your hair with just water for 2 to 5 minutes taking time to massage the scalp. Normally I have just detangled my hair so I rinse out the detangler or hot oil.
- Apply the shampoo and work it through your hair section by section without too much scrunching - squeeze your hair and massage your roots to dislodge stubborn dirt and oils.
- When you feel you have loosened all the dirt rinse your hair then apply conditioner section by section.
1. Wash your hair in twists.
If your hair is longer than shoulder length it should already be in twists to prevent re-tangling.
This keeps the hair strands together and stops errant strands from getting tangled around their neighbours. This technique is optimal if you're washing your hair bent over a bath tub as the action of bending forwards and then standing back up increases the rate of tangling. It's also best for medium to long hair.
2. Keep your hair flowing in a downward direction.
This technique is easier if you have a shower whose head you don't have to hold up! Wash your hair with your hair held upright to stop the strands from moving about and getting tangled. This is such simple advice but it actually works! If your hair is in twists then this is not that important.
