Hair Journey Chronicles: Washing your hair!
What to use:
You MUST condition the hair. WHY? Shampoos open up the cuticle (the outermost layer of the hair) in order to cleanse it. This makes the hair very adherent to other hairs (hence, the tangled mess that would result with the WRONG washing technique). A conditioner closes up the cuticle effectively and also moisturises or strengthen the hair (depending on whether it is a moisturizing or protein conditioner *to be explained later*).
The simplest way to add to the conditioning effect is to leave on the conditioner for a bit longer (15 mins, 30 mins, 1 hr).
Hope this helps!
