Have you ever experienced having scalp problems such as dandruff after having used rinse off conditioners? All rinse off conditioners specifically instruct that you apply the conditioner only to the hair strands by the end. These conditioners are never applied to the scalp.
The reason that the rinse off conditioners work is because they stay on your hair even after you have washed them off so when you apply conditioner to your shorter hair, it also reaches your scalp thus leaving residue on your scalp.
Of course this isn’t a problem for those having long straight haircut as it’s easy to apply conditioner on the hair ends only but for those who have short haircuts or those who have bangs or layer cuts, it becomes almost impossible to apply conditioner to the smaller cut hair and avoiding the scalp.
Here is when our little trick will come to use.
When you are done with shampooing your hair, take generous amount of your rinse off conditioner, flip your hair backwards and then apply the conditioner to the hair. Massage a little so that the conditioner reaches every hair strand. Don’t worry, with your hair flip backwards, your hand should reach only the hair above the scalp, avoiding the conditioner to reach the scalp.
Leave the conditioner for the time prescribed and then rinse off your hair with water while your hair are still flipped backwards.
Once done, wrap your still flipped hair with a towel and wait until the excess water gets soaked. When you open your hair to style them, no amount of conditioner would have reached your scalp.
