Pre-Shampoo Oil Treatment(optional)Step 1: Using your fingers, divide your hair into 4-6 sections.
Step 2: Apply approximately 1 tablespoon of pure coconut, avocado, or extra virgin olive oil throughout each section. Make sure to put oil on every layer of your hair - you will use 4 to 6 tablespoons.
Step 3: Cover your hair with a plastic cap to keep the oil from dripping down your face and neck.
Step 4: Leave the oil on your hair for 1 hour or more.
Step 1: Gently comb through your hair with your fingers. Apply oil or a serum to areas that are very tangles. If you see or hear your hair breaking as you finger comb, skip to step 2.
Step 2: Once in the shower, rinse your hair with lukewarm water for about 3 minutes. This long rinse will loosen up and rinse away product build up from the week.
Step 3: Apply a quarter-sized amount of a gentle, moisturizing shampoo to your scalp and hair. Add more water to create a good lather.
Step 4: Gently rub your scalp with the shampoo lather.
Step 5: Gently and quickly, work shampoo through the length of your hair - don't separate the hair into sections or try to detangle it.
Step 6: Rinse thoroughly.
Step 1: Apply a large amount of a moisturizing conditioner throughout your hair. The amount you will use depends on your hair length and thickness. If your hair is very thick or tightly coiled, you may use a palm full of conditioner or more.
Step 2: Work the conditioner through your hair from root to tip.
Step 3:Add more water to your hair to help you distribute the conditioner. Make sure every strand of hair is saturated. Leave the conditioner in your hair for the amount of time specified in the instructions on the container.
Step 4: Before you rinse out the conditioner, detangle your hair with a wide tooth comb. Remember to start combing at the ends and work your way to the root.
Step 5: Rinse thoroughly.
Step 6: The next product you apply will depend on the style you're trying to achieve.
Bonus Tip: Moisture evaporates from highly porous hair very quickly, so be sure to apply your styling product or leave-in conditioner within 5 minutes of rinsing out your conditioner.
