10 tips for washing hair! 1) Once a week use a scalp exfoliator - the scalp builds up with oil, dead skin and old products. 2) Always shampoo twice - the 1st shampoo will loosen up oil & debris and then the 2nd shampoo will fully remove it. 3) Shampoo the scalp with the pads of fingers, never shampoo & scrub the hair itself - when hair washing, it’s actually the scalp we want to wash. If we scrub the ends with shampoo, this will roughen up the cuticle leaving tangled and matted hair. The hair will get washed just by the shampoo running over it when being rinsed out. 4) Squeeze the water out of the hair before conditioning - this is so you are not diluting down your conditioner. 5) Comb conditioner gently through with a wide tooth comb and leave for 2-5 minutes - this is to make sure all hair is covered, not just the top layer and to remove tangles. Leaving on for 2-5 minutes will allow the conditioner to do it’s job of closing the cuticle and restoring moisture and protein. 6) Give yourself a little massage whilst the conditioner sits on the hair - this will stimulate blood circulation which then stimulates new hair growth! 7) Once a week, use a mask instead of a conditioner, leave on for 10-20 minutes (depending on what your mask tells you) - A mask penetrates deeper than your surface conditioner, this is more of a treatment. 8) Rinse off conditioner or mask with cool water - this will close the cuticle of the hair and leave your hair shiny and smooth. 9) Pat and squeeze hair with a towel, never rub - hair is vulnerable when wet so we need to treat it carefully. If we rub the hair, this will toughen up the cuticle and lead to matting/split ends. 10) When shopping for hair products, look for a shampoo with no sulphates & a conditioner with no silicones - sulphates are a type of salt which will dry your hair out over the long run. Sulphates are a type of plastic which deceive you into thinking your hair is silky soft when it’s a layer of silicone over the top!

Products used: - ghd mini stylers here: http://tidd.ly/b5b0abc2 - ghd hairspray here: http://tidd.ly/d3da7fb6 - ghd paddle brush here: http://tidd.ly/ce4ca455 - oil here: http://tidd.ly/74d11238 If you do not already follow @negin_mirsalehi you definitely should, as she is ultimate hair goals and girl boss! So I thought I’d do a little tutorial on how to create her amazing curls/tight waves that last in the hair for at least 3 days! 1) Begin with freshly washed, smooth, dry hair 2) Section into 2 (left and right) and use sectioning clips to section bottom upwards in 2 inch deep sections 3) Using @ghd mini stylers, rotate a full turn at the root and then glide down on a 45 degree horizontal angle 4) Swap hands for the opposite side and repeat the same, but make sure your curls are the opposite way! 5) All curls should be in the same direction on each side but falling AWAY from the face, so different for each side! 6) Keep working up towards the top of the head in 2 inch deep sections. Repeat the same technique on bangs if you have any 7) Mist with hairspray and allow to fully cool 8) Once fully cool, use a paddle brush to brush out curls. This will loosen them out and bring them all together to create more of a waved shape 9) Use a couple drops of oil, warm up in your hands and then run through your locks with your fingers. This will tame, smooth and add shine. 10) Et Voila! You’re set for your waves to last until next hair wash day! (*You can use the standard styler size and you will just create a slightly looser look!) #hair #hairgoals #curlyhair #curls #hairstyle #neginmirsalehi #chloeswiftstylist

How to style your hair like Negin (AKA perfect tight waves which last for 3 days!)

For those of you who don't know Negin, she is the ultimate girl boss and brand owner of GISOU hair products. To create tight waves like hers which will last 3 days, I have used the ghd mini stylers but you could also use the standard size stylers for a slightly looser look. These curls are great though for hair which tends to drop! https://www.instagram.com/tv/CAGMiujAEIT/?utm_source=ig_web_copy_link
