What is the first thing the hair and beauty artists learn on the topic of shampooing?
Well, shampooing at La Biosthétique isn't just pour shampoo in your hand and you're ready! After we have chosen the shampoo ...
We'll get to the selection ... but as soon as you have decided on the shampoo?
Good because that is very important! So after we've chosen the shampoo, we carefully comb through short to medium-length hair. For long hair instead we follow this with a special ends conditioner that detangles the hair. We evenly moisten all hair. And with a special applicator bottle we then distribute the shampoo along the parting from the scalp and over the hair. This is followed by the five-zone pampering massage over the front of the head, temples, ears, top of the head and nape of the neck. For long hair place the hair in the basin while massaging the scalp, then end by gently lathering up the shampoo in the lengths. Then carefully rinse out the shampoo. Depending on the hair and scalp situation, shampoo the hair a second time using the same method.
And how can I find the right shampoo for me?
Well, that's actually not that easy for laypeople. Many people see straggly roots and buy a shampoo for oily hair, which can really exacerbate the problem because the scalp wasn't oily at all, but instead it was moist or dry. These are differences that the expert can see. We La Biosthétique hairdressers show our customers these differences in the scalp check with indicator strips - this is how oily, moist or dry the scalp is currently - that's why you need this or that shampoo.
And how much shampoo do you apply?
We go very carefully because we mostly have to first cleanse the scalp and then the hair as we rinse out the shampoo. So we always gradually apply some shampoo to the hair and never everything at once. For thin shampoos apply about 5 to 10 ml; for thick shampoos we would advise you to apply a dosage the size of a walnut. It always depends what type of shampoo it is. It is important to cleanse the whole scalp.
