We know the obvious... shampoo and conditioner, but, is that all there is?
Shampooing properly allows you to get the best out of hair treatments. Conditioners also offer a healthier and shinier hair. If you don’t do it properly, there is a chance that your hair may face damage. So, you must know the right way of shampooing not only for cleaning your hair but also for saving your hair from unwanted damage.
Common Mistakes while Shampooing.
Sometimes, we don't use the correct shampoo. In our beauty industry we have a variety of products, and it can be a bit difficult to choose the right one for your scalp and hair needs. So, the help of a professional can be crucial in order to decide the right shampoo.
Some tips that here, at Musart Salon, you can go before deciding what shampoo to use;
If you have fine hair, you’ll want to use a gentle shampoo that can also help you with adding volume.
Bain Divalent & Bain Densite, is our best choice for our guests with fine hair that. Health scalp and hair full of body!
If you have thick or coarse hair, look for something with moisturizing qualities, that will softener your hair.

If you have color-treated hair, look for a color-safe shampoo that won’t strip your color every time you wash it.
For blonde highlighted hair, look for a shampoo to prevent unwanted yellow tones and that will address other hair needs like dryness, breakages. etc...
With Blond Absolut, a repaired, and yellow free blonde is definitely possible. Full of hyaluronic acid for deeper hydration, it will also help the hair to absorb the conditioner or mask right after.
Now that you know the right shampoo... let's talk about the action of washing your hair.
How many shampoo passes do you usually do? 1? 2? Maybe 3? The right way is at least 2. The first shampoo passed will be to clean the buildup. The second wash is to actually clean your scalp. At Musart we go for 3 passes. You can actually do the same at home if you feel like your hair and scalp still needs the extra love.
Don't over-wash your hair, give a space in between washes. We recommend at least 2 to 3 days in between, so your hair can have a balance production of sebum. Do you have oily scalp? flacky scalp? In a situation like that we do recommend to consult your dermatologist, it may be some skin condition that needs more attention.
lathering your hair properly, letting your hair get fully wet with lukewarm water helps open the cuticles, making it easier for your hair to absorb your conditioner later.
Pour some shampoo on your palm, rub your palms gently to lather up, and then apply it to your hair starting on the back bottom, to cover the whole area. Avoid concentrate the shampoo on the top of your scalp and hair line, the hair on that area is finer and tends to get fragile, so extra care is never too much.
4. Rinse thoroughly Rinsing your hair until the water is running clear. One of the biggest mistakes people make is accidentally leaving shampoo in their hair, which leads to scalp buildup. If you have dry hair, you might want to try rinsing with cold water, because it helps hair to stay stronger and healthier. Cold water doesn’t dry out the sebum layer of your hair, a naturally lubricated barrier that protects your hair and keeps it strong.
5. After the 2 or 3 shampoo passes, have the right mask or conditioner is important to choose the right one for your hair needs. We will be going about this in another post.
