Keep It Clean People

Do you remember the feeling you got when you purchased your first car? It didn’t matter if it was a Beater or a Benz. You wanted to keep your “new” car looking just like it did when you drove it off the lot—shining like a new dime!
Now think back to the first time you went to the beautyshop. Remember coming out  with your hair bouncing and feeling light as a feather? If your hairdresser was on point, your hair was looking just like that car—shining like a new dime!
So what did your hair and that new car have in common? They both just had a good deep-down clean. There’s no substitute. A little soap and water can go a long way to making you look good .
Shampooing: Why & How
As mentioned in your SOLH consultation, you can cleanse your hair with shampoo or conditioner. The most important point is to remember to cleanse often. It takes away the dust, lint, dirt, and of course left over product that can weigh the hair down. Thus causing it to loose it’s shine and ability to retain moisture. And remember moisture is the Master Key to unlocking the secret to long healthy hair.
Shampoo is the better of the two when it comes to a deep cleanse. It’s chemically designed to take dirt away from the hair. The co-wash is a fortified rinse that can take away surface pollutants while leaving the hair less stripped than the shampoo.  During your consultation we determined how often and in what proportions you should use each. As mentioned in your SOLH Hair Plan, switching the days are fine but switching the frequency will greatly hinder your progress.
The best way to cleanse your hair is in the shower. You have less opportunity for tangling your strands. Plus you're better able to access your entire head. Remember BE GENTLE. You should never come out of a cleanse with a soar scalp or headache!  If you’re unable to cleanse in the shower, your next best option is to braid the hair in loose plaits and cleanse in the sink. The plaits will decrease your detangling time afterwards drastically.

So when it comes to supporting hair growth and maintaining healthy hair -- KEEP IT CLEAN!
