Did you know the health of your scalp determines how fast your hair grows? Heavy build-up on the scalp due to overactive sebum, excessive product usage and dryness can lead to blocked follicles; when left untreated, the scalp can become irritated and itchy, and inhibit hair growth. To ensure a clean, flake-free and healthy head, cleanse and condition properly by following these do’s and don’ts, courtesy of HairMax…
DO start by rinsing your hair with warm water for about three minutes. The extra rinsing time will loosen up product residue, allowing you to use less shampoo.
DON’T comb your hair while shampooing. The stretching and pulling creates unnecessary stress on strands. DO save detangling for when the conditioner is in.
DO choose the right shampoo and conditioner. For example, the HairMax for den•si•ty Collection contains ingredients like peppermint oil and tea tree oil, which help stimulate circulation, maintain scalp health and prevent excessive oil build-up.
DON’T pile hair on top of your head while shampooing. DO apply the shampoo by smoothing it in a downward motion.
DONT’ rough up your hair while drying. Rather, gently squeeze out the water with a towel.
