Handle the Hair Gently When Shampooing and Brushing

It’s important to shampoo your hair regularly to keep it clean and healthy. But many people don’t realize that the shampooing processs itself can be traumatic to hair.

Hair should be shampooed gently, because a too energetic handling of the hair can set the hair up for breakage. The same goes for brushing and combing, which is the single most stressful activity to which hair is
routinely subjected.

Using the correct conditioners and/or leave-in treatments can make a world of difference, by removing tangles and making the hair much more receptive to combing and brushing.
