When washing your hair, you should start by rinsing it with water to get most of the impurities out. Then, gently massage the shampoo into your scalp and in the hair. Take your time and make sure all your hair is covered with shampoo. Rinse until all the shampoo is gone. If you need to save money, you can cut your hair yourself. The best way to do it is to wash it, brush it and divide it into seven sections. Use a pair of sharp scissors to cut one section at a time. Working with sections allows you to create layers and to keep things well-balanced. Using a blow dryer can damage your hair due to the excessive heat. If you must use a blow dryer, use it on the cool setting. Make sure you don’t focus the dryer on one area and keep it moving around your scalp at a good distance. To get better results, pat your hair dry with a towel before using the blow dryer.
