Shampoo: It’s recommended to wash the hair every 7-10 days, washing it more than that can dry out the hair. Co-wash (which means washing the hair only with conditioner) on those messy days. When using shampoo, make sure to use the balls of your fingers instead of your nails. Scratching the scalp can irritate the scalp. Co-washing is also great with Blended Beauty’s Cleansing Conditioner. And Blended Beauty’s Shampoo is so gentle, it can be used a couple times a week.
Conditioner:Always condition after you shampoo! There are 3 types of conditioners. Rinse out, Leave In, and Deep conditioner. The deep conditioner helps to repair/heal damaged hair. The rinse out conditioners are thicker. The Leave In conditioner is thinner, and contains ingredients to help moisturize hair.
Detangling: It’s best to detangle the hair in sections, using a wide tooth comb. Make sure to hold the hair firmly at the root, and begin combing at the ends of the hair, working your way up.
Moisturizer: After all of the hair has been combed through, apply a moisturizer to the hair. If your hair becomes dry within hours, try adding oil on top of the moisturizer to help seal/lock in the moisture.
