I’m a haircare expert & you’re washing your locks ALL wrong – it’s bad news if you love to lather up with shampoo

amazon, i’m a haircare expert & you’re washing your locks all wrong  –  it’s bad news if you love to lather up with shampoo

WASHING your hair is pretty simple, right? Wrong.

According to Zoe Irwin, dubbed the Blowdry Queen by Vogue magazine, we have been doing it incorrectly – from the amount of product we use to how we lather it in.

Zoe, who is on a mission to educate the nation on how to wash their hair, says: “Hair for some people is often a bit of an afterthought, unlike skincare which has been more taught.

“Your hair needs the same treatment in order to look its healthiest.”

As someone whose hair often feels limp and a bit greasy, I am desperate to know the secrets so I paid Zoe, creative director at John Frieda Salons, a visit . . .

Cut back on shampoo

OFTEN we can apply and waste way too much shampoo. Zoe says the easiest way to make sure you’re not using too much is to buy a refillable pump – these can cost as little as 99p from Amazon.

Start with one pump, which is around a 50 pence piece size, before deciding if you need more. If you have longer or thicker hair, for example, you may need another squirt.

I often find myself using three times as much shampoo, thinking I don’t have enough product on.

Zoe also says that instead of having one blob in your palm, you should coat your entire hand in shampoo, by rubbing it all over the palm and fingers, almost like you would with hand cream.

This gives an even distribution of product and you can use your whole hand to coat the hair.

Never rub or lather

WHEN I put shampoo on my head I naturally rub it in without really thinking about it. But I should be massaging my scalp instead because our hair is most fragile when it is wet so rubbing can cause ­damage.

Zoe suggests holding your head still and moving your ­fingers and thumbs around your scalp. This stretches the cells with the hair follicles, giving a thicker diameter of growth.

According to Zoe this can accelerate your hair growth by 24 per cent. She also recommends spending longer ­massaging your scalp the older you are, as hair gets more brittle as we age.

Not only does this technique make for healthier hair but you’re giving yourself a head massage after every shower…What’s not to love?

Don’t condition at the roots

WHEN it comes to conditioning, coat your hands and start at the bottom of your hair using a stroking method.

Subdivide your hair into sections so the conditioner can make its way into every part. Zoe recommends taking a flexible hairbrush – such as the Manta healthy hairbrush, £25 – into the shower with you to brush through the product evenly.

Once the bottom of your hair is coated, move to the top near your scalp. As the conditioner will be diluted with the water from your hair, run your fingers through, starting from your hairline.

Leave enough time for it to sink in, then subdivide your hair when rinsing to get rid of all the product. I used to avoid conditioner on the top of my head for fear of it making my hair greasy. But Zoe says it is all about the application.

Avoid rough drying

FIRST, wrap your hair in a towel to get rid of the excess moisture. But instead of rubbing your hair, pat and press on your head to be more delicate, aiming to take about 85 per cent of the water out of your hair.

Zoe says the longer the towel is on the better, as often people begin to blow-dry their hair when it is too wet. Then, with your hairdryer and small sections of your hair, dry in a circular motion, with the dryer never leaving your hair.

Taking small sections helps to concentrate the heat so it dries quicker. A clip can also be handy to keep the sections of the hair in place while drying. You might think (like me) whacking the heat and speed up to full makes it dry quicker. But Zoe says that is not the case.

Medium heat is best so your hair does not fly all over the place and will not be damaged. A cold blast of air at the end sets the hair in place.

Twist straighteners

The best way to achieve curls using straighteners is to hold them diagonallyCredit: Chris McAndrew / Fabulous Magazine

IF you want to finish off your blow-dry with a bounce, this is the final step in Zoe’s masterclass. Many people use curling tongs, but straighteners do the job and it saves you having to buy two hair tools.

The best way to achieve a curl from straighteners is to hold it at a diagonal. Wrap the hair once around the straightener before turning your wrist and pulling down.

Once you have a curl formed, Zoe suggests holding it for a second before letting it drop and not touching your hair until all the curls are complete – hold the curls in place with a clip. For extra oomph Zoe also backcombed my crown slightly using a comb.

Curling may be a technique I have to practise a few more times but I love the outcome of my new glossy blow-dry.

車いすテニスに対し、梅屋敷がいつになく熱くなるのには、ある理由が… 梅屋敷(増田貴久)が泣いた―8月13日放送の日曜劇場「オールドルーキー」(毎週日曜夜9:00-9:54、TBS系)第7話は、車いすテニスについて描かれ、普段は皮肉屋でクールな梅屋敷が珍しく熱くなった理由も明らかになった。 梅屋敷がいつになく熱くなった理由 本作は、ある日突然、選手引退を余儀なくされた37歳の元Jリーガーが、サッカー以外のスキルも知識も経験も無いどん底からセカンドキャリアをスタートさせ、新たな目標に向かっていくヒューマンストーリー。実際のトップアスリートたちに取材した内容を反映したリアリティのあるエピソードもポイントだ。(以下、ネタバレ含みます) 主人公・新町亮太郎(綾野剛)が勤める「ビクトリー」に、車いすテニスのプレイヤー・吉木(福山翔大)がマネージメントを依頼しにやって来た。「ビクトリー」はパラアスリートのマネージメントの経験が無く、社長の高柳(反町隆史)は吉木を受け入れるべきか悩み、社員たちに相談する。消極的な意見が続く中、いつもなら真っ先に否定的なことを言う梅屋敷は意外にも受け入れに前向き。彼が熱弁をふるう姿を初めて見た社員たちは驚きを隠せなかった。しかも、実際に吉木のプレイを実際に見てから決めることにした高柳に「オレが行きます!」と一番に名乗りを上げ、「ビクトリー」と契約してからも積極的にスポンサーを探すのだった。 梅屋敷がいつになく熱心なのには理由があった。彼の中学生になる姪・桜(池端杏慈)は吉木と同じく下半身不随だったのだ。小学生のころからテニスに励んでいたが、脊椎の病気が見つかり車いす生活に。以来、希望を見いだせず不登校になってしまった彼女を、梅屋敷はずっと心配していた。彼の誘いで吉木の練習の見学に来た桜は迫力に驚くが、一緒にやろうと言う吉木に「私には無理」と告げた。 だがそれ以来、桜が部屋で車いすテニスの動画ばかり見ていると知った梅屋敷は、吉木が出場する日本オープンの試合観戦に桜を誘うが、彼女は「行きたくない」と言う。どうしても試合を見せたい彼は「つまらなかったら何でも買ってあげるから」と物で釣り、観に来ることを承諾させたのだった。 試合が進むにつれ桜の目は輝き、吉木に声援を送るほど夢中になって涙を流しながら試合を見つめるのだった。試合終了後、梅屋敷に「どうだった?」ときかれた彼女の答えは、「つまらなかった」。戸惑う梅屋敷に彼女が続ける。「つまらなかったから、(競技用の)車いす買って!」。その言葉に彼は大号泣。そして桜は、吉木に「自分もやりたい」と告げ、久々に見る姪の笑顔に、梅屋敷はさらに涙が溢れた。競技用の車いすはオーダーメイドのため、40万円以上するが、梅屋敷にとってはうれしい出費となるだろう。 これまでの“いいとこ無し”から大逆転 車いすテニスに出会い、桜は笑顔を取り戻す ここまで梅屋敷は、「ビクトリー」のエース社員と言われながらも、敏腕ぶりはほぼ描かれず、スポンサーの言いなりになって担当選手をアイドル売りしようとして失敗したり、社内でも憎まれ口ばかり叩いて、他の社員からも相手にされず、正直“いいとこ無し”だった。そして、大半の視聴者から「梅屋敷、いちいちイラつく」「こういうプライドだけ高い同僚、居るよね…」と疎まれる存在となっていた。 だが、今回で大挽回。スポンサードを申し出た会社の社長にパラスポーツを応援する意義を問われたときも、車いすの姪や吉木を可哀想だと思っていた自分が間違っていた、と語り、ボランティアとして応援するんじゃなく、一人のアスリートとして向き合ってほしい、と熱く訴える姿は観ているこちらにも感動を与え、「嫌いだったけど見直した」「梅ちゃん、本当は熱かった!」「こんなに必死な梅ちゃんに泣けてくる」と彼に対する好意的なコメントが並んだ。 先週ぐらいから徐々に柔軟な姿勢を見せつつあった梅屋敷だが、今回で大きく成長。亮太郎や仲間たちとも楽し気に接する姿からは自然体でフレンドリーだ。そんな彼の変化は亮太郎がもたらしたものだが、社長・高柳は必ずしもそれが良い変化だとは思っていない様子。しかし、社員の結束はさらに高まったはず。この先、高い壁があっても社員一丸となって向かっていける―そんな希望が感じられた。 ◆文=ザテレビジョンドラマ部 Read more »
