2. Massaging the steamed hair before applying shampoo
After steaming the hair, gently massage the scalp with fingers for a few minutes. This can help in loosening up the dirt and also removes the weak hair strands from the scalp.
3. Using the cool or lukewarm water:
The heat generated from the hot water strips off the natural oils from the hair and keeps the hair cuticles open, thereby allowing the moisture to escape from hair. Washing the hair with lukewarm water helps in closing the lock in the moisture and cuticle thus giving shinier locks.
4. Using the SLS free shampoo and paraben
Parabens are added as preservative in shampoo and SLS helps in forming the lather. Both of these chemicals cause allergic reactions and skin irritation. As per the recent studies it is found that they can cause severe damage to the eyes in children. So use the organic shampoos which are paraben and SLS free.
