A small portion of shampoo does not suffice. Do not apply directly to hair, but work first into a foam in your hand with some water. Briefly massage in and rinse with water that is not too hot until hair “squeaks” between your fingers. Shampooing once is adequate when hair is washed regularly. For longer hair, it is also enough to wash only at the roots: suds flow over the ends during rinsing and washes them automatically.


Conditioners are used directly after shampooing and need only a short period of time to take effect. As with the shampoo, rinse well with water that is not too hot. For oily hair, apply conditioner only to the ends, not to the roots. For thin hair, conditioner should be used only in small amounts.




For a treatment that stays longer in hair and is rinsed out, hair must first be lightly towel dried. Careful: do not rub or tug on hair; wet hair is sensitive. Only dry off excess moisture with a towel, so that the replenishing ingredients do not “slide off” hair that is too wet. Heat enhances the effect of every treatment: a plastic shower cap, a towel turban or, ideally both, generate heat and speed up the penetration of treatment ingredients into the hair. After the given time has elapsed, rinse thoroughly with lukewarm water.



Instant Repair Treatments, Express Rinses, etc.

These are usually massaged or sprayed into damp hair and not rinsed out. Some products may also be applied to dry hair. Comb carefully through hair afterward to evenly distribute replenishing substances throughout the hair.

Hair Tonic

Hair tonic is for the scalp area. It is best applied after hair has been washed and is still damp. Then it does not “draw in” too much tonic and can reach the scalp more easily. A spray bottle or pipette helps to distribute tonic more evenly to parted hair.




Wet or damp hair is very sensitive. The cuticle layer becomes swollen during washing and reacts sensitively to pulling and rubbing. Therefore, do not dry hair by rubbing it wildly with a towel, but rather press the moisture out carefully. Take care not to pull on hair while combing, and, if possible, use a wide-toothed comb. It is best to let hair air dry. Often, it is hard to get around blow drying, but you can minimize damage by following a few simple rules: try to maintain a distance of 30 cm between dryer and hair, and keep the dryer on a low heat setting. Also, try to blow dry hair in the direction of the hair’s natural structure—from the roots to the ends. This is easy on the hair and gives extra shine.


Combing and Brushing

It is important to use only high-quality brushes and combs. Combs should have wide prongs and no sharp edges (e.g., welded joints with plastic combs). Horn, hard plastic or wood make good materials for a comb. Brushes should have bristles that are not bound too close together or too rounded. For long hair, a brush with gentle,



If you style your hair every day, you should make sure to use styling products with little or no alcohol so that your hair does not dry out. Brush out hairspray or gels before going to bed so that hair does not break so easily. With hair clips, bands, and the like, pay attention to the material: hair bands should be specially made for hair; regular rubber bands pull too much on hair when removed. Soft hair bands and scrunchies are much better for pulling long hair up and/or together than inflexible hair clips or barrettes.
