The Correct Order To Apply Hair Care Products

You need to wash your hair 2-3 times a week to keep them healthy and clean is no news. However, there is still some confusion surrounding the usage of hair care products. Does the mask go on before shampooing? Or can you apply serum post hair spray? Are some of the most common questions we come across regarding the use of essential hair care products. But fret not; we did the hardwork (so you don’t have to) and have complied the a thorough guide to help you layer hair care products in the correct order. Read on for all the dope.


01. First up, shampoo and conditioner

Shampoo and conditioner are most basic essentials when it comes to hair care and probably ones we never go wrong with. Shampoo goes on first, followed by the conditioner. Shampoo cleanses the scalp while conditioner seals moisture back into your locks. However, make sure to apply shampoo only to your scalp to avoid drying out your hair. When you wash it off, it’ll run down, along your lengths, cleansing your strands too.

For conditioners, make sure to apply it only from mid-length to tips. And rinse it off with cold water.


02. Hair mask

On days your hair feels extra dry or feels like it could use a boost of moisture, skip the conditioner post shampooing and reach out for a hair mask. Mask up with TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Deep Smoothing Mask. Infused with marula oil, it helps give your hair soft, supple, and lustrous locks. Leave it on for 3-5 minutes, and voila! It reduces frizz, adds shine, makes hair straight and easy to detangle, thus reducing breakage. Truly a gem, this one.


03. Hair serum

Once you’re out of the shower, use a microfiber towel or cotton shirt to dry your hair. Once your strands are 60-70 percent dry, it’s time to layer a serum. Serums keep your hair strong and healthy by protecting against damage, pollution, heat, etc. Hair serum not only facilitates in keeping your frizz controlled, but it also gives you mane a smooth and glossy shine. It’s important to pick the right serum that will help deal with your hair problems. The TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Hair Serum, infused with camellia oil, helps in frizz control and adds vibrancy and lustre back into your tresses.


04. Heat protection spray
