FOR PEOPLE who are very much concerned about their hair, here are some tips on how to give their head and hair a good shampoo.
1. Brush hair briskly to smooth out tangles and loosen dirt.
2. Massage scalp firmly for 5 minutes to make it supple.
3. Wet hair with warm water. Apply shampoo and work up a good lather. With your fingertips, work the suds into your scalp. Gently pull the suds through your hair strands. Massage the areas behind the ears and at the base of the skull where the oil=producing glands are. The top of the head, which has no oil-glands or muscles, needs massaging to stimulate circulation.
