Truth About Shampoo and Conditioner
Hide Video Transcript
NarratorFrom one of the largest and most recognizable beauty salons in the southeast…. To the intimacy of an exclusive Atlanta salon... When it comes to the truth about shampoos and conditioners, the message is the same:
Daniel Holzberger, Creative Director, Van Michael SalonThe single biggest truth about shampoo is that it's overused.
John Teitter, Owner, Bang! SalonWe're conditioned as Americans to think that you have to bathe and shampoo all the time, but we also moisturize all the time because of it.
Daniel Holzberger, Creative Director, Van Michael SalonWhen you shampoo your hair every day, or twice a day, you're stripping your hair of your natural oils. What happens next is that you start to use too much conditioner, to try to keep your hair from becoming dry—and all of a sudden your hair feels oily and then you feel like you have to wash it again.
NarratorBut, you say…if I don't wash it every day I can't stand myself….
Daniel Holzberger, Creative Director, Van Michael SalonDo you brush your hair? If you’ll brush your hair everyday in the morning and at night, before you style it and before you go to bed, you're going to have much more balanced hair and your hair is going to be a little healthier.
NarratorMore tips for the perfect shampoo: If you have fine or oily hair:
Daniel Holzberger, Creative Director, Van Michael SalonUse a shampoo that's cleansing for your oily hair, use one that's volumizing for your fine hair, and just alternate them
NarratorAnd for fine, dry hair, or hair that's colored….
John Teitter, Owner, Bang! SalonIf you have dry hair use something moisturizing, if you have colored hair use something with protein, and alternate that with the volume shampoo and conditioner.
NarratorWhat if you have curly or coarse hair…
John Teitter, Owner, Bang! SalonCurly hair is lacking moisture naturally so to use something moisturizing is going to give you the best results, the strongest curls, the least amount of frizz.
Daniel Holzberger, Creative Director, Van Michael SalonThe hair just feels rough..that's the coarse effect. You're going to use a shampoo that is a little more smoothing, something that adds moisture to the hair, something that's going to seal down the cuticle.
John Teitter, Owner, Bang! SalonI'm going to put some conditioner on you…
Daniel Holzberger, Creative Director, Van Michael SalonThe single biggest truth about conditioner is it gets misused. So many people just glob a bunch of conditioner right on their hand and they put it right here and then they say my hair is really oily here but it’s dry down here.
John Teitter, Owner, Bang! SalonYou apply to the ends first. Start at the ends and work up to the scalp. Whatever left you can rub in, mostly work the ends and then rinse that out after about 2 minutes.
