Whatever your mantra for unwinding might be – the key is to pamper yourself – give a little tender love and care that your body needs. But while you take care of yourself, don’t forget to care for the one thing that adds to your glam quotient.

Your hair! After all, your hair gets stressed too! But don’t worry, loving your hair won’t mean an expensive trip to the salon. With our secrets you can love and care for your tresses right at home! How, you may ask? Just by shampooing and conditioning it the right way – and here are some things to remember while you’re at it:

  • 1

    Use the Least Amount of Shampoo Possible

    Using too much shampoo can make it hard to rinse out thoroughly, and could leave a film on the hair that will leave it looking dull and lifeless, as well as causing other problems, like flaking.

  • 2

    Don’t Pile Your Hair On Top of Your Head

    Piling your hair on top of your head will just cause tangles and snarls causing more breakage. Let your hair hang straight down while washing and use your hands to work the shampoo from the roots down to the ends. You should use the same method when toweling your hair dry.

  • 3

    Not so hot

    Use warm water, not hot, when washing hair, as hot water is strips it of its color and moisture. Finishing off your hair wash with cold water instead will leave you extra shiny hair after each shampoo.

  • 4

    Work it through

    Massage your shampoo on your head for as long as you can; it’s good for the scalp. If you have thicker or longer hair or both you may use more shampoo. If your hair is greasy, then shampoo twice before applying conditioner.
