Hair Wax, Paste, Gel, Cream, Pomade...  Those are always very useful for hair styling. It depends on the look you are going for: wax and paste are better for that messy casual look, creams and gels are wet and greasy looking, good for a formal style. Most sould be worked into towel-dried wet hair. You can either finger-comb creams and gels, or you can use a standard plastic comb for a sleeker look.

Expert Hair Care Tips for Choosing and Using Shampoo & Hair Conditioner


Tip for the correct washing scalp and hair washing method. Which is very important for the scalp and hair are healthy. By reviewing how to shampooing, you can expect not only to clean your hair but also prevent thinning hair, dandruff and itch.


Let's improve how you wash your hair and get smooth hair and a healthy scalp!

Shampooing Your Hair the Right Way

1. Remove dirt and entanglement by brushing

Brush with a hairbrush before shampooing. By brushing you can get rid of dust, dirt and hair loss from your scalp and hair. By keeping the hair frayed and tangled also prevents hair from tangling while washing. The hair has the property of getting tangled easily when wet, so it is necessary to loosen small tangles beforehand. Furthermore, by giving an appropriate amount of stimulation to the scalp by brushing it, promoting blood circulation and hair growth effects.

2. Temperature and shower are important for rinsing

Rinse your hair thoroughly with hot water. The best temperature for hot water is around 38-40 ℃. If the temperature of the hot water is too high, it may cause dryness of the scalp and hair, which may cause scalp troubles (dandruff, itchiness, redness). It can also cause hair colour to fade.

3. Use the shampoo in the proper amount

Too little → The foam will be small and friction with the shampoo will occur.

Too much → It cannot be washed off and remains on the scalp and hair and it may cause scalp trouble. 


* The proper amount will vary based on the shampoo used and the amount of hair.​

4. Don't apply directly on the head

Take the shampoo and rub it in the palm of your hand to mix air and water.  (It is not good to apply shampoo to the scalp or hair without foaming it with the palm of your hand. It will be easier to leave it rinsed.)Place it on the top of the head, both sides, and the back of the head, and use the tips of your fingers to further foam the hair so that it contains air. When the foam is firmly formed, wash it in completely.

5. Don't wash your hair, wash your scalp

Do not scrub your hair hard, friction damages the hair. The dirt will be removed just by the foam flowing through your hair, wash your scalp as if you were gently massaging it.

Massage scalp with your fingertips. Do not rub your scalp with your nails, The scalp will be damaged, leading to scalp trouble.

Step 1. Back region (behind the left and right ears, neckline)
Draw a circle and move your fingers to massage the scalp.


Step 2. Temporal head (above the left and right ears, temples)



From the upper left and right ears to the upper part of the head, wash the temporal region while moving the fingers in a circular motion.


Step 3. Top of the head 
From the back of the head to the top of the head, wash while moving your finger in a zigzag manner.

Step 4. Frontal to hairline
Move your fingers and shampoo with gentle force, just like massaging the forehead.




6. Rinse carefully

Rinse thoroughly and carefully over time. The point is to rinse until the slimy feeling disappears. Rinse with the showerhead against your scalp and massage with your fingertips until you feel the shampoo and foam are gone. If you just apply the shower from above, only the bubbles on the surface of the hair will flow and the hot water will not reach the scalp. Rinse carefully so as not to leave shampoo.
