Volume up your hair! Fluffy hair comes from washing the scalp thoroughly
the person who taught me
Hair and makeup artist. He has worked extensively in magazines and advertisements. He is also in charge of many reader model photography for “Halmek” and “Halmek he is stylish”.
Kesaki Kojima, a hair and makeup artist, has a reputation for accurate advice unique to the same generation . It’s not difficult, just add a little more effort to your usual washing method. Let’s get started today.
1 Brush before washing
Brushing removes dust and boosts shampoo lather. It detangles hair and prevents hair loss. Comb all over your hair from top to bottom, then gently comb from bottom to top.
2 Rinse thoroughly with hot water and massage the scalp
Rinse with warm water before applying shampoo. Roughly 70% of the dirt on your hair can be washed off with hot water. Make sure to massage the scalp from the bottom up as well (pages 29-30 for effective massage techniques).
Take an appropriate amount of shampoo on your hands, lather it up, and wash it by massaging the scalp in the same way.
3 Rub conditioner into hair
The conditioner (rinse) that protects the surface of the hair is thoroughly rubbed into the entire hair, not the scalp. It does not penetrate into the inside of the hair, so you can wash it off without waiting for a while. Spread the conditioner over your fingers and rub it all over your hair.
If you want to make it more fluffy and glossy, “This one step will improve the treatment effect”
Unlike the above conditioners, “The effect is halved unless it penetrates the inside of the hair. It is recommended to dry it, wrap it in a steamed towel, put a shower cap on it, and leave it on for about 5 minutes.”
If you are worried about the volume of your hair, review how to use the dryer!
“I have been in charge of hair and makeup for many Halmek readers, but everyone is worried about thinning hair, losing elasticity,” says Kojima.
Ms. Kojima herself says, “I’m particular about how I wash and dry my hair. It makes all the difference in how soft my hair is!” “First, choose a shampoo that suits your hair type, wash your scalp thoroughly, and then the important thing is how to dry it.
” You can add volume to your hair.Finally, use cold air to create a habit and dry it thoroughly.If you do this at night, you can easily complete fluffy hair on busy mornings.
” and put out the volume
From the back of the head, blow dry the hair in the opposite direction of the hair growth. Hair grows from top to bottom, so if you dry it as it is, it tends to become flat hair. “In the opposite direction of the hair flow” is the iron rule.
2 Apply cold air to fix the volume
After drying the hair on the sides and front of the head in the same way, apply cold air at the end. The cool air closes the hair cuticle and fixes the shape, keeping the hair soft until morning. Finish with a brush. If you use a brush to dry from the beginning, move the brush against the flow of your hair.
3 Dry thoroughly
Let it dry thoroughly and brush it off to complete. If it’s half-dried, it can cause odors and make you sleepy, so mornings are tough! Dry off overnight.

“Yes” 62% / “No” 38%
According to a reader survey (*), more than 60% of people use treatments, and it turns out that everyone takes good care of their hair.
