Her tips completely transformed her own long locks in six months.
Never shampoo tangled hair
According to Yung, the process of shampooing alone creates a tangle, so if you already have tangles, it is going to make you much more likely to experience hair breakage.
She suggests using a wide-toothed comb to brush hair before getting in the shower and applying hair products.
Make sure all of your hair is properly wet
If the hair is not properly wet, it is going to make it a lot more difficult to spread shampoo evenly throughout the whole scalp, which means that you won't be getting a proper even cleanse.
This will also cause you to use up more shampoo than you need, costing more money. Young suggests taking a shower head and working in sections over the scalp, flipping hair up and upside down, making sure each part of the scalp is fully wet.
Apply shampoo in the right spot
Make sure you are shampooing all over the scalp.
While washing her own hair, Yung works in sections around her head, massaging shampoo into the scalp. She rubs the product into the back of her head and the very underneath of her hairline.
Take care of the ends
The shampoo is designed for the scalp, not the ends of your hair. It can damage the ends by stripping moisture from them.
The scalp is what needs to be cleaned, not the ends of the hair. The shampoo will actually run through the lengths and ends of the hair as you rinse it. The focus of the product application and massage should be on the scalp.
