5 Proven Tips For Better Hair

What to do to keep your mop in tip-top shape



When drying hair after shampooing, always pat dry and gently squeeze excess water out with your towel. Never rub as that causes frizz and even hair breakage, as the hair cuticles start lifting up.


Used too much hairspray and can’t wash your hair clean? Coat your hair with conditioner first to help soften and detangle. Rinse off, then shampoo to remove any remaining styling product.


Just as you exfoliate and mask your face, do the same for your hair. Use a clarifying shampoo to remove product build-up from styling products and conditioners, followed by a conditioning mask for healthy hair.


When it comes to styling your hair, work from the front to the back, because people will see your face first, and you want to have your hair on point.


For lustrous, healthy locks, take good care of your scalp. Always choose a shampoo based on your scalp’s need.
