Using Skin Balance as a shampoo
1. Wet your hair and scalp with cool or warm water.
2. If you have long hair, condition first.
3. Squeeze a coin-sized amount into your hands. Lather up and massage into your scalp. Don’t use more shampoo than you need and don’t waste shampoo on your hair.
4. Be gentle! Don’t use your nails or massage the scalp too vigorously. Be gentle at the hair roots, as healthy hair begins at the scalp. Friction can permanently damage your hair’s cuticle, leading to breakage and frizz. Increase blood flow to the scalp and stimulate hair growth by using vertical strokes with medium pressure. Don’t use circular motions, which tangles your hair.
5. Rinse. As you rinse out the shampoo, the hair ends will get cleaned. There’s no need to wash your hair twice. Avoid stripping your hair of its natural oils and moisture by doing one shampoo only. Unless your hair is extremely dirty and the first shampoo didn’t produce any lather, then go ahead to shampoo one more time.
6. Condition or use our apple cider hair rinse recipe below. Apply conditioner from the mid-lengths to the tips.
7. Rinse with cold water. This seals down the cuticles tightly and keeps your hair strand smooth.
8. When drying your hair, do not rub dry! Rubbing your hair together causes hair breakage and opens up the cuticles, resulting in frizzy hair. Pat or squeeze dry gently with your towel. Let your hair air-dry. When using a hair dryer, blow-dry until just damp and let dry naturally.
