The smoothest blowouts start in shower
    2014-04-04  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

    YOU probably already know that whole “lather, rinse, repeat” thing can damage your hair. But here’s something you may not know: Getting smooth hair can be a whole lot easier if you start styling it in the shower — and avoid sneaky mistakes that cause breakage and flyaways in the long run.

    The chances are good that you’re using too much shampoo. All you really need is a quarter-size amount.

    “Shampoo removes all of the dirt and oil from your hair, then it starts stripping away essential oils and lipids that prevent dryness and breakage,” said hairstylist Nathaniel Hawkins.

    Shampoos labeled moisturizing, curl-enhancing, or color-protecting are relatively mild.

    Don’t act as if you’re in a shampoo commercial. Piling all of your hair on top of your head and massaging in your shampoo actually roughs up the cuticle, causing frizz, flyaways, and tangles. Rub your shampoo between your hands, gently massage the roots with your fingertips, and smooth what’s left on your palms over the length.

    Make your conditioner work harder. Use a moisturizing or color-protecting formula. Ones with argan, avocado, or grape-seed oil are especially hydrating.

    Hair is most fragile when it’s wet, and that means it’s most likely to snap if you comb or brush it right out of the shower. Keep a wide-tooth comb in the shower so you can detangle while the conditioner is still in.

    You can even start before you shower. Before you get in, distribute a small dollop of hair oil over the length of your hair. Give the oil about 10 minutes to sink in if you have the patience. Your hair will be easier to straighten and a lot shinier when you get out of the shower. (SD-Agencies)
