Okay, so, styling your hair?

How hard can it be?

Well, turns out – it can be quite difficult. Right from using the wrong products to the wrong style, there’s a lot of things that can go wrong.

So, to avoid these spectacular foils, let’s take a look at some of the most common (and loathed) mistakes that you have the tendency to make.

Should you use a 2-in-1 shampoo and conditioner?

God, no – this is a one really serious blunder that under no condition should you commit. You see, to get to the bottom of this, you need to know a little science.

The shiny mane that you have on your head – they are made up of strands of hair, and each of this strand is covered in scales or better known as ‘cuticles’. Now, in order to properly clean your mane, you will need to open up these cuticles by using shampoo so that it can release all the remnants of pollution or nay product build-up, while, on the other hand, what a conditioner does is to moisturize the hair and then, close these cuticles.

And it is for this very reason that 2-in-1 shampoo and conditioners don’t work – there’s no magical product that can open and close the cuticle at the same time; and even if you manage to find one, what will happen is that you will get squeaky clean chair alright, but their cuticles won’t be closed properly, and this will result in the hair picking up pollutants and getting dirtier much more quickly.

What’s the solution?

To make your mane the envy of all, you need to at first wash your hair with a dedicated shampoo before you start to shower, and only after rinsing it well, should you apply a conditioner that is based on your hair type, and let it soak in for the remainder of your shower before rinsing at the end.

Doing this will cleanse both the hair and scalp plus it will also allow time for the conditioner to penetrate the hair, and thus, leaving it healthy and moisturized.
