The 6 Shower  Mistakes You're Making That Ruin Your Hair 

There is nothing better after a long hard day, then jumping in the shower and washing away all the stresses from your day, or waking up jumping in the shower refreshed ready to face your day. Happy that your grime and days dirt is swirling down the drain. But no matter how long you are scrubbing your body and those tresses there may be some simple mistakes that you are making that are throwing  everything off. By Following our simple steps you are giving you locks a better healthier chance in the world.

Mistake #1 Brushing Wet Hair     

 Dont do it, Water actually weakens your hair's bonds, so running a brush through when it's wet and defenceless will leave you with way more breakage and damage then if you waited 15 minutes after your shower for it to dry slightly.

Solution: Use a specially crafted hairbrush with wet hair in mind

Mistake #3; Conditioning Your Roots With Unneeded Chemicals

You should be applying your conditioner from the middle of your hair to the tips, while steering clear of roots. (Your scalp makes enough oil naturally to keep the roots moisturised, so adding conditioner on top of it is overkill.)

Solution; Use A Nourishing Conditioner 

MoroccanOil Moisture Repair £16.55

The award winning Moisture Repair conditioner gently detangles and softens hair while restoring elasticity and manageability with reconstructive keratin and fatty acids.

Mistake #4; Using Sulphates for Deeper Cleansing 

Sulphates are added to shampoos and conditioner because of their deep-cleansing lathers, but often these harsh agents aren't needed, and they can even strip your scalp of its natural oils and nutrients (making it overproduce oil to compensate!) Hello greasy hair!!!

Solution: Use a Sulphate-Free Shampoo and Conditioner

Solution; Use a Hydrating, Best Selling Hair Mask
