Choosing the right Natural Shampoo and Conditioner for your Scalp & Hair Wellbeing

Choosing the right Natural Shampoo and Conditioner for your Scalp & Hair Wellbeing

Choosing the right natural shampoo and conditioner can make a considerable difference to the health of your scalp and the look of your hair. To begin with it’s important to understand that a shampoo is designed to cleanse the scalp and a conditioner is for conditioning the mid-lengths to ends of the hair. Shampoos cleanse and conditioners condition.

So, when you’re choosing a shampoo assess the needs of your scalp first, and then choose a conditioner for your hair. As an example if you have a sensitive or irritated scalp and dry hair it would make sense to choose a sensitive shampoo for your scalp and a hydrating conditioner for your dry hair.

The correct way to Shampoo

Pre-soak your hair with warm water. It is important to prepare the hair to receive the shampoo. Pour some shampoo into the palm of your hand, rub your hands together and then gently move the shampoo into the roots of your hair gently massaging your scalp as you go with your fingertips. Remember, shampoo should firstly cleanse the scalp, then the roots of the hair and lastly after a couple of minutes of allowing the ingredients to work, the wash out phase is usually sufficient to clean the rest of the hair. Repeat this process if needed. A common cause of dull hair is inadequate rinsing of the shampoo, so ensure you rinse properly.

How to use a Conditioner

Use a small hand towel or gently squeeze the excess water from the hair. Apply the conditioner to the mid-lengths and ends of the hair. There is no need to apply conditioner to the roots as this will weigh the hair down. Comb the conditioner through and leave in for a minimum of 5 mins, or longer if possible, allowing the active ingredients to penetrate the hair. Rinse with warm to lukewarm water. If you can tolerate it, cooler water will close the cuticles, leaving the hair smooth, soft and shiny.
