Did you know there is a science to shampooing?

When washing hair, never bunch or scrub your hair. Use your fingertips to rub your scalp and run your fingers downward to clean and detangle. For best results, completely saturate your hair with warm water to open the scale-like cuticles of the hair to wash all the oil and dirt off. Focus on the scalp, as that is where you’ll find most of the oil, dirt and grime. Do not pile your hair on top of your head — let the suds run down naturally. This will help to keep the ends of your hair from losing too much oil.

Finally, before you condition, make sure to squeeze as much water out of your hair as possible to optimize the effects of your conditioner.
