Saloon Hair Wash at Home.
We shampoo all the time, but are we doing it correctly?
We all have got a hair wash at the saloon and we love it!! Do you want such an amazing saloon hair wash at home?
No matter how many times you washed your hair it never felt THAT soft? You even tried different shampoos!
Don’t worry..Keep reading
If you really really want the saloon type hair wash you have to be patient! I know how tiring it can get to wash our long hair patiently!!
First of all try to find out your hair type..Is it straight,wavy,curly ? Is it dry,oily,normal? dense,thin? Understanding your hair type goes a long way in having healthy hair!
Once you know your hair type, choose a shampoo and conditioner that best suits your hair type.
Now you are ready to start..
Step One: Oil your hair at least an hour before you plan to wash! I usually oil it at night and wash it off in the morning.. Choose an oil which suits your hair type. Experiment to find out what is best for you! Oil for hair = Food for Humans…all the nourishment and care your hair needs comes with oiling! Make sure you apply enough quantity and massage the oil properly into your scalp.
Step Two: Shampoo!! Take little quantity (yes, little quantity) of shampoo and massage into your wet scalp. A coin sized amount can lather a lot and maybe enough for your hair. You may have to wash again to get rid of the oil. Do not wash too many times, we don’t want to get rid of the natural oils! Rinse properly.
Step Three: Squeeze out all the water.
Step Four: Use a conditioner and apply it starting from the mid length to the tips. A conditioner is not supposed to be massaged into the scalp! Use a wide toothed comb and comb out any tangles formed. Do not over comb as your hair is fragile when wet. Leave the conditioner on for 2 minutes.
Step Five: Rinse thoroughly and allow it to dry naturally. Do not use hair dryers all the time..it makes your hair frizzy! When your hair is damp you can opt to use leave – in conditioners such as Livon. Allow it to dry and style as you like
Do not tuck your hair behind your ear when it is wet.It will cause unnecessary bumps.
That’s it! Soft and tangle free hair is ready

Hey Geetakshi, Any shampoo with tea tree oil is good for oily hair..Also there are many shampoos with green tea avilable which can be great for your hair type.
Here are two products I would suggest for you: Boots Bergamot shampoo and himalayas protein shampoo..
Stay away from conditioners if you have really oily hair!

If you don’t mind.. I have a doubt.. Last time I went to a beauty clinic, the guy there suggested me to straighten my hair.. When I said I was concerned about it damaging my hair, he told to do smoothening instead. Frankly, I could not make out any difference between the two after he showed me pictures of both. Is there any difference? And most of all, is it safe for the hair to do straightening/smoothening?Reply

yes,theres a lot of difference between smoothening and straightening.. In smoothening,the products act at the root of your hair..helping to reduce frizz and makes it more softer and managable.(it does not really make hair straight)Also very little heat is applied in smoothening,which is why it causes less damage,however the benfits are just for a short time.
In straightening, lots of chemicals and heat is used..which certainly causes a lot of damage to the texture of the hair..How ever it will last longer than smoothening..but the tips become straight and pointed..which looks very unnatural!
If you like your hair type then i would suggest going for smoothening rather than straightening if you want to change your hair type from super curly to straight,go for straightening! Hope that helps vaisakh
