RR Quick Tip: Don't Pile, Smooth

She's doing it WRONG!
When shampooing, hair should not be piled up on top of the head and scrubbed like an old towel on a wash board. We do not live in shampoo commercials and we don't have a team of professionals on standby to provide instant remedy when we pretend like we do. The shampooing process can be very rough on hair especially when using sulfate shampoos. Rather than causing extra tangles and roughing the hair cuticle even more than the harsh cleansers already do, keep hair ends downward and gently smooth shampoo on the length of the hair in a downward motion. If extra cleansing is needed gently rub hair between palms, unless you've been mud wrestling that's all the "scrubbing" hair should need.
