- SMOOTHING SHAMPOO. Smoothing shampoo contains silicone or oil to coat the hair strands.
- SHAMPOO FOR COLORED HAIR. You had better go for a shampoo specifically designed for color treated hair if you hair is colored. To prevent color fading, you should select the product whose pH level is 4.5-5.5.

- RINSE-OUT CONDITIONER. Apply rinse-out conditioners on the ends of your hair. Let it stay for a few minutes. Rinse it out.
