Contrary to what most people think, there is such a thing as putting too much hair product in your hair. But how do you know how much is too much? How do you know exactly how much hair product to use from your shampoo to your conditioner, to natural oils? We’ve run through a list of the adequate amount for every single hair product you might own.
- Shampoo: This really depends on how dirty or/and thick your hair is. The truth is, so long as you give it a thorough rinsing after washing, you can’t really use too much shampoo.
- Hairspray: When using, move your hand in a wave like motion to make sure the product is evenly distributed. Concentrating on a particular part leads to unwanted buildup.
- Oils: No matter how thick or long your hair might be, you really don’t need more than the amount equivalent to the size of a naira coin, except you are deep conditioning. Yes, I know no one carries coins around anymore, so I have included a picture.
- Conditioner: Over conditioning your hair is a thing, and so you should never use more than the amount equivalent to the size of a tennis ball.
- Hair gel: Using too much gel, wrecks havoc on your hair in the long run. In fact I’m not a fan of it at all, however if you must use it the amount equivalent to the size of a 50 kobo coin is more than enough.
