Shampooing and conditioning short hair

When you’ve cut your hair short you require only lesser amounts of shampoo and conditioner to wash your hair. Too much of shampoo can dry out your hair and irritate your scalp and using conditioner in excess could cause your hair to weigh down and appear dull. The frequency at which you have to wash your hair depends on the type of hair you have.

If it’s really necessary that you have to blow dry your hair, stop it when you are halfway through. Then you can style it and allow it air dry.

Trim your hair at least once a month

To maintain your short hair you need to trim it around 5 to 7 weeks depending on how quickly it grows. Sometimes you may have to get trimmed earlier depending on the growth of your hair and its style.
