Out of the frying pan and into… a hot shower! When your hair gets oily and it’s time for a wash, hot water does more bad than good! Did you know that if you have hair or scalp that is prone to oiliness, using hot water will stimulate your oil glands to produce even more oil? So drop the temperature and keep that wash for longer!
THE CONDITIONER KILLER
Find that your conditioner just doesn’t last? The problem could be not drying your hair off before applying! Conditioner gets easily diluted when applied to wet hair making it less effective and so you apply more! Grab a towel after you’ve shampoo’d dry your hair off and then apply! You’ll be amazed at the difference.
LATHER, RINSE, REPEAT
Yes! There is a very good reason behind shampoo’ing twice! The first time washes off all the grit and grime from the day – oil, pollution, smoke. The second wash allows your shampoo to do it’s magic! Whether it’s a moisturising shampoo like Redken Diamond Oil or a hair-loss wonder like KÉRASTASE Densifique. It gets your shampoo working like it should!

BYE BYE BUBBLES!
Have you bought a professional product that doesn’t seem to lather up? Chances are that’s because it’s a sulfate-free shampoo. Sulfates are a detergent and the reason behind the bubbles. Suflate-free shampoos come with a ton of benefits:
- Gentler on the scalp
- Gentler on colour
- Doesn’t remove natural oils
- Avoid going grey early
- The more natural option

SHOWER VS. BATH
As much as you love a good bath it’s just not the place to wash your hair properly. When washing your hair in the bath all the grit and grime you’re trying to get rid of sticks to the surface of the water so when you “rinse” it all jumps back on again!
Try only using a shower head or shower when washing your hair, this way you know that when the dirt and oil is gone… and gone for good
RESIST THE URGE TO BRUSH
Wet hair is extremely delicate and should be handled with care. That’s what’s great about the VEAUDRY myDetangler! It glides easily through your hair, wet or dry, making use of flexible bristles at different lengths – which minimizes damage caused when detangling!
Ask for it at your nearest Franco International!
