Say byebye to messy hair

However, a full-bodied Sleeping Beauty-esque head of hair comes at a cost, which is the time it takes to grow and maintain, thick, healthy-looking hair. Fortunately, there are plenty of ultra-hydrating shampoos, conditioners, oils, and leave-in treatments that can help you cheat your way to growing a lustrous head of hair and revive dull-looking locks.

Have you made any of these hair mistakes?
Did you know that you should be combing your hair before shampooing it? No, we didn’t either, until LA-based esthetician Shani Darden revealed that she combs her hair every time before shampooing it, so as to avoid accidentally tearing the hair when washing. This makes a lot of sense, however just make sure when following through with this step, you brush your hair when it’s still dry before you hop in the shower. This is because hair is at its weakest when wet.
When it comes to shampooing, starting at the ends of the hair is crucial. We find that the easiest way to remember this is by turning your head upside down when shampooing and conditioning. This driest part of the hair is the ends, which is why you want to be working majority of the product into this area and in doing so, reduce as much irritation as you can on the scalp, which is the most sensitive.
Finally, after shampooing and conditioning, you should be giving your hair a cold water rinse. If you thought this was a beauty myth repeated over the years in magazines and on websites, no, this really is a beauty do that is actually true. After your cold spritz and you’re out of the shower, gently pat your hair dry (no tugging!) and finish with a hydrating cream or oil on the ends which will help to prevent breakage and promote hair growth.
