After I wash my hair, the ends can look frizzy or straggly – unless I blow it dry or style it. That’s because the ends of my hair have been around the longest and seen the most “combat.” My ends can’t help but be the most damaged part of my hair – even though I treat my hair veeery carefully.
I have a strategy that gets my ends to look as thick and shiny as they can possibly be. It also works to repair them.
Before I clean my hair, while it’s still dry, I coat the ends with my triple-protein-infused conditioner. The three proteins are of different molecular sizes to fill in any-sized gap in the protein chains that make up my hair. It also includes plenty of provitamin B6 and lipids – both essential in nourishing and restructuring hair.
I leave it on for about ten minutes – although longer may have some additional benefit. Then, I aim the shower on the roots of my hair to soak them. I will add cleansing conditioner to my roots – massaging my scalp and working it down towards the end. I don’t actually move all the way to the ends, as I clean. There is no need to, and there is no reason to wash those wonderful proteins and conditioners from the ends.
I simply rinse my hair from roots to tips when I’m done cleansing – concentrating the rinsing more on my roots.
That is it. My entire head of hair looks clean, full and shiny – even the tips. I also strongly believe that, as a result of this regular practice, my hair grows longer than it would without it!
