UNDERSTANDING SCALP CARE, SHAMPOOING AND CONDITIONING

One of the most important experiences that a stylist provides is “the shampoo”. This first step of the service actually encompasses three different processes: scalp care, massage and shampooing & conditioning. The shampoo can and should be a soothing, pleasurable experience that sets the mood for the entire visit.
