Are you washing your hair properly? Apparently, lots of us aren't. So we've gathered up tips from top hair care experts, to beat all hair washing faux pas and problems.

Where should I apply shampoo and conditioner?


Hair experts at Trevor Sorbie say, "Focus the shampoo at the roots, as this is where the majority of the dirt will build up, but avoid applying conditioner at the roots as that can cause hair to look lank and greasy."

Is it true you can shampoo your hair too firmly?


The Trevor Sorbie panel say yes. "Don't be too rough with the hair when shampooing, as this will irritate the scalp and can stimulate grease production. Also, avoid doing a circular or scrunching motion on top of your head, as this can damage the cuticle, cause tangles and deplete shine. Apply in the direction of hair growth instead."

How much shampoo and conditioner should I use?


Obviously it depends on your hair length and type, but the size of a 50p piece appears to be the general consensus.

Do I need to change my shampoo and conditioner regularly?


Trevor Sorbie says no. "This is a myth. The only factors that may affect the results from your shampoo and conditioner are hormonal and perhaps seasonal changes. Changing your shampoo could possibly help to break down any product build up that has occurred from not rinsing properly."
