Tip: Most people start with a dollop of shampoo in the center of one hand. This causes uneven distribution of shampoo/conditioner, which means you’re going to have a spot with a lot of product while the rest of your hair is lacking. Instead smooth the dollop across both hands as you would lotion, and then gently run your hands through wet hair.

Tip: When shampooing, try not to tangle your hair. Massage the shampoo into a rich lather throughout the hair and scalp, using the pads of your fingertips, not your fingernails. Be sure to rinse the hair thoroughly to remove all traces of shampoo.
