1. Saturate your locks in water

You need to thoroughly soak your hair in cold or lukewarm water before applying shampoo so that the debris and oil can be washed away. In order to get the most out of your shampoo's cleaning abilities, you should wet your hair for a full minute before applying it. You should thoroughly soak your hair by wetting all of its portions.

2. It's important to use a shampoo formulated for your specific hair type.

To get the most out of your hair wash, it's important to select a shampoo that works for your specific hair type and condition.

3. The next step is to wash and condition your hair.

Rinse your hair to remove the shampoo. Start conditioning at hair's mid-length and work your way to the ends.

4. Rinse and then put on some serum.

Repeat the process of running water through your hair to remove the conditioner. Cold water is preferable to use when rinsing since it closes the cuticle layer of the hair. Hair and scalp are also protected from dryness while washing with cold water.

Use a smooth cloth or fabric to pat dry your hair once you're done. After towel drying your hair, apply a generous amount of serum from the mid-lengths to the ends. Your hair will be much less of a hassle to brush and style after this.

5. Do a quick blowout.

Your hair dryer's best settings are low to medium heat. Use a wide-tooth comb to gently detangle your hair as you blow-dry it. Avoid trying to force your comb into a tangle. Before using a brush, you might use your fingers to untangle your hair.

6. Brush your hair

Use a round brush to straighten your hair after you've dried it with a hair dryer. Your hair is now clean, healthy, and ready to be styled as you like!
