Everything You Need to Know

Got Knots?

Hair – The first thing that gets noticed by people, the sun, the rain, and the humidity; basically it come into contact with EVERYTHING as an opening sight.

So its little surprise that when someone is exposed to the daily weather conditions (particularly in the harsh Australian climate) that many people’s hair isn’t exactly in tip-top shape and condition.

It is also is quite common for people to commonly think ‘shit that woman has bad hair’, ‘have you ever heard of conditioner and a brush’ or ‘Jesus Christ get to a hair dresser pronto’- all the while their own frizzy hair is standing on end reminiscent of a crazy professor cooking up a concoction in his lab.

Follow these 10 steps for revitalizing your hair:
1. Start with the basics – a great shampoo and conditioner.

2. Before washing your hair, brush it to detangle and rid your locks of excess styling products.

3. Ensure the water temperature  is below 37°C (body temperature) or your hair will become excessively dry

4. Massage the shampoo in small circles to stimulate the blood flow, rinse, then shampoo again.

5. To dry, pat your hair between your hands or a towel. Don’t wring it, as this can damage the hair cuticle

6. Massage in a small amount of conditioner, from the tips to your roots. Leave in your hair for a couple of minutes for the best results

7. Over-rinse your shampoo and under-rinse your conditioner to leave your hair silky smooth

8. Rinse out the conditioner with warm water, making sure you don’t rub your hair

9. Squeeze your hair between your palms or a dry towel, then use a wide-tooth comb to gently detangle it. (By using a de-tangler it will soften the knots and allow your hair to be combed easier which results in stronger hair)

10. Set your hairdryer to medium to avoid over-drying your hair!
