With all the fancy shampoos available in the market it gets so confusing which shampoo to use. Always find the shampoo with right ingredients that will suit your hair type.

After shampoo, conditioning is the utmost important step that you should not overlook ever. Make sure to cover all your hair from the tips of your hair to top but leave the roots. The conditioner nourishes the hair, locks in the moisture that is stripped off by shampooing, and makes your hair soft and shiny.

Towel dry and apply a leave-in conditioner for smoother, shinier and softer hair. Let your hair air dry instead of using hair dryer as hot, dry air will do more harm to your hair.
