Condition before you wash. Yes, I just said that. If you know you are going to wash your hair in the morning, condition the ends the night before. Certain hair types will benefit from using either a conditioner or a hair oil alone, while others will see drastic improvements from using both. One of the great benefits of the newer hair oils is that they are internally repairing. They are no longer just "topical treatments". Putting oil in your hair the night before a wash gives the oil time to do its job and the hair a chance to absorb what it can. All you need is a few pumps and it only needs to be applied to the ends of your hair. Clip your hair up and be sure to wear a shower cap or use an old pillowcase when you are ready to sleep.
When you wash your hair the next morning, wash only the roots; the shampoo will wash off any excess product that the hair could not take in. This will give you soft, manageable hair without worrying about the extra oils weighing the hair down. Over time, you will find that your hair will be stronger, have more bounce and movement and your hair will look and feel healthier than ever.
For medium to coarse hair types, I suggest using the oil by itself.
If you are not sure what hair regimen would be best for you, feel free to message me or stop by the salon. I would love to answer any of your questions.
