When it comes to hair washes, I rarely see issues besides maybe not liking conditioners 100%. The shampoos I try out leave my hair defined and soft. There’s nothing greater for me to feel the grip of my hair once I rinse the shampoo out of my hair.

How do I shampoo my hair?

I shampoo my entire hair open and don’t use hair clips. Twists and braids aren’t necessary since I cleanse my entire hair and not just my scalp. We type 3 and 4 heads usually rely on heavy products to achieve certain hair styles, especially when it comes to defining our own natural curls. To create a reset and reshape of your naturals curls and waves, you really have to wash your entire hair. The environmental dirts, oils and products residues have to be lifted away. If you don’t do it, you keep buildup on your hair strands preventing conditioners and other styling products to work properly.

  • The easiest way to shampoo your hair is to emulsify the shampoo in the palm of your wet hair strands first.
  • Your hair has to be completely rinsed from the old products, soaking wet and weighed down with the water stream.
  • Now you distribute the shampoo onto your entire hair. I usually start in the front, then the back, my sides and middle hair.
  • The shampoo will start to activate and lather into a nice foam.
  • This is the point where you use the foam to smooth it down your entire hair strands to stretch you hair out.
  • Now with the first lather you focus really good on your scalp. Don’t worry about the length of your hair, it will stay stretched, just smooth the foam down from time to time.
  • Repeat the entire process with a second lather. This time there’s a very rich lather and now you also begin to focus on your hair strands.
  • Smooth your hair strands down, kind of like sleeking your hair into a pony tail.
  • Depending on your density, you can work in sections by creating finger detangling motions.
  • I usually do the sides of my hair first, then the back sides and the middle of my hair.
  • If your hair is reverting, just smooth your hair down again. You will notice the air bubbles of shampoo are making your hair stiff but pliable. Perfect to remove around without having to rely on specific sections.
  • Once you get the hang out, you just hold & lift specific sections of your hair strands and massage your scalp to loosen up dirts and oils. You the finish the entire process by smoothing your entire hair down, just like creating a low pony tail.
  • Proceed to rinsing. Your hair will stay completely stretched out and the majority of tangles and shed hair strands will be already carried away by the water stream.
  • This method saves a lot of water and shampoo and will make you enjoy your hair, no matter what density you have.
  • Shampooing my hair takes me not more than 10 minutes and my hair clumps after the hair rinse.

You don’t rely on having to open each section or twist or braid, shampoo that section, rinse it and proceed to the next section.

You mostly end up with over rinsing sections, that have been shampooed before. Also when you braid and twist your hair too tight, you end up leaving either buildup or shampoo residue in those twists. If you don’t have a mirror or you don’t record yourself, chances are very high you’re starting the conditioning phase with shampoo residue in your hair. Which will be barely noticeable once you slap conditioners heavy in oils and butters over.

Which is why encourage you to start cleansing your hair open with shampoo

And learn how to work with the foam of shampoo to create smooth weighted down hair strands. This method is for everyone and don’t let others fool you by saying you can only wash it this way when you don’t have high density hair. It’s not true. Sometimes it’s hard to unlearn common practices we grew up with in this social media world. You better learn how to do it right while your hair is growing, so you won’t have issues once you’re reaching your hair goals.
