A person should shampoo their hair at least twice per week, you should use a shampoo and not soap that you bathe with. Soap is designed for skin. Shampoo is designed for hair and scalp; there is an important difference between the two. Soap will dry your scalp, and most soap will leave a residue that will dry on your scalp and hair. I would also recommend a good conditioner. There are many types of shampoos and conditioners on the market, many claim to be new and improved, when it is only the same old thing that they have been using. Your hair should be combed and brushed at least twice a day. You have to take care of your hair if you want it to be at its best spend a few bucks and get shampoo; stop shampooing your hair with soap. Use a separate shampoo and conditioner; all in ones don’t work as well. A shampoo can’t be as effective with conditioner added to it. A shampoo can either clean, or condition well; not both at the same time. Clean your hair with a shampoo wash twice. To first wash is more or less a pre cleaning, this removes some of the oils, and dirt and product build up from your hair. The second shampoo is the real cleansing you get more lather and you massage your scalp with the cushion ***** of your fingertips. Rinse well ring hair of excess water or squeegee your hand through your hair. Your hair can only absorb so much moisture at one time. Get the excess water from your hair. It will be able to absorb more of the conditioner. Repeat the step for shampoo with the conditioner with the exception that you will only condition once. Don’t use grease on your hair it would be better to use a moisturizer it is made to be absorbed into your scalp as well as the hair follicle. Grease will sit on top of your hair and scalp also it clogs the hair shaft grease is made as a hair dressing even though people use it on there scalp. Hair dressing is meant to add shine and hold hair together, also for running hot combs through. Comb and or brush your hair daily; at least once or twice a day. If you follow these basic rules you should be able to manage your hair care to maintain your best appearance, also to have your hair and scalp as healthy as possible. Do not over look the importance of drinking water and eating a healthy diet to maintain healthy hair, hair grows from the inside out.
