At Home Shampoo Process.

I know so many of my customers love having their hair washed at the salon. So here are a few tips on how to get a professional shampoo experience at home.

Disclaimer: I may earn a small amount of money from links presented in this blog. I only recommend products I use personally or in the salon. All products listed are top sellers within the salon and vary in price to suit all budgets.

Professional shampoo and condition process.

Shampooing

Shampooing is the procedure of removing grease, dirt, and other matter from the hair and scalp.

Step 1

Wet hair as normal (Shower is best)

Step 2

If using professional shampoo apply 10p size portion to your hand (You may need more for shop brands).

Rub both palms together so the shampoo is on both hands.

Spread the shampoo evenly over the hair. Starting from the hairline at the front of your head, down through the mid-length and ends of your hair. Using slow, smooth strokes, with the palms of your hands. This evenly coats the hair with shampoo.

Next make claw shapes with your hands. Using the pads of your fingertips make small, fast circular movements while applying some pressure all over your scalp.

Step 2

Rinse and repeat Step 1

Conditioner

Conditioner closes the outer layer of the hair, helping to protect and maintain moisture.

Step 1

Apply a 50p size portion of conditioner to your palm. Just like shampooing rub both palms together so the conditioner is on both hands. Spread the conditioner evenly over the hair. Starting from the hairline at the front of your head, down through the mid-length and ends of your hair. Using slow, smooth strokes, with the palms of your hands. Evenly coating the hair with conditioner.

Then make claw shapes with your hands again. Using the pads of your fingertips make small, SLOW circular movements while applying some pressure all over your scalp. This massage is very relaxing and will help penetrate the conditioner and promote blood circulation.

Step 2

Comb the conditioner through your hair using a de-tangler or wide-tooth comb.

Step 3

Rinse the conditioner out. Squeeze water from your hair and place it up in a towel.

Top Tip - Never rub your hair with a towel. You can use it to squeeze water from the hair. Rubbing will cause friction, which will break your hair.

Professional shampoo and conditioner can be a lot more expensive than shop-bought products. This is because they are more concentrated, lasting longer than your typical shop brand.

Below is a list of links to my top sellers, to suit all budgets. I hope this blog helps you care for your hair at home. And if you need any help in deciding which shampoo and conditioner would suit your hair type, please email me.

TIGI

Tigi is cost-effective and has many different shampoo and conditioner duos to meet all hair care needs. I alternate between Bed Head Antidotes Recover and Matrix's Hydrasource. The following duo packs last me 6 months at home.

1) For Moisture and Repair

2) Volume

3) Blonde Hair

4) Ash Tones - Remove brassy tones. 5) Coloured Hair - Prolong the life of your brown based tints.

6) Men's Hair - Perfect for removing gel and clay buildup.

MATRIX

Matrix is slightly more expensive than Tigi but worth every penny. One of the best things about using links, is you don't have to take my word for it, you can read the reviews on each product. I have always used Matrix, since working as an apprentice to now.
