Has it ever crossed your mind that you may be applying too much hair product to your locks? In fact, using too much product might be damaging to your hair. Well, we’ve got good news for you – you can actually use less amount of hair products while still achieving the desired results for your hair! Keep reading to learn more!
The Right Amount of Hair Product You Should Use
You shouldn’t have to overdo your shampoo, only use an amount of product that is the size of a cherry tomato (for fine hair) or a walnut (for thicker or dirtier hair). A good bottle of shampoo goes a long way as long as you emulsify the shampoo on your hands before washing your hair! When you use too much shampoo, chances are you could experience a flakey scalp or frizzy hair.
Try using the Davines OI Shampoo (₱ 1,250) – a paraben and sulfate-free product that is a great first step in your daily hair routine for soft and shiny tresses. We also recommend the Kérastase Discipline Fluidealiste Shampoo (₱ 1,750), another sulfate-free shampoo, to gently cleanse your hair while taming frizz. You can shop for other shampoo products here.
You would think that you need a great amount of conditioner to be able to deep condition your hair from roots to ends, but in reality, using too much conditioner can just weigh down your hair. The right amount of conditioner you will need is just the size of a raspberry! Only apply the product from the mid-length to the ends of your hair, unless your roots and scalp feel very dry.
Nourish your hair with the L'Oréal Serie Expert Absolut Repair Gold Conditioner (₱ 950) to reconstruct and repair damaged and weakened hair. Another great product is the Kérastase Nutritive Lait Vital Conditioner (₱ 2,050), it restores the moisture, nutrition, and shine of dry hair for supple hair.

Unlike conditioners, hair masks should be applied from your roots to the ends. Why? It’s a great hair treatment for when your hair has been over-processed or is just really dry. This is why the right amount of hair mask that you should use is the size of an Oreo! Although if your hair mask has a very thick consistency, then you may want to take the size down a notch.
Consider using the L'Oréal Mythic Oil Masque (₱ 1,170) as this rich buttery mask disciplines unruly, thick hair with an instant, deep nutrition for smoother and shinier locks. The Wella Professionals Elements Renewing Mask (₱ 1,200) is also a moisturizing mask with intense conditioning that renews hair smoothness and shine. View more of our hair masks here.
The right amount of leave-in conditioner for your hair mainly depends on the length of your locks. So, if you have short hair that goes above your shoulders, then use a blueberry-sized amount of product. If you have a hair length that sits on your shoulder, then use a raspberry-sized amount. For hair that goes beyond your shoulder, use an amount that sizes up to two raspberries – you can add a little bit more, as needed!
The AVEDA Botanical Repair™ Strengthening Leave-In Treatment (₱ 2,000) instantly strengthens and repairs hair from the inside out, and detangles to help prevent breakage. Also, the Kérastase Resistance Ciment Thermique Blow Dry Primer (₱ 1,900) is a fiber strengthening leave-in hair milk that fortifies and protects hair from heat. Take a look at the other leave-in conditioners we have here.
Hair oils are miracle workers for your strands, but not when they are used incorrectly! Using too much of this hair product can only grease up your hair, so all you need is one to two pumps.
Add an extra layer of love to your locks with the L'Oréal Huile Original Mythic Oil (₱ 1,099) for breathing nourishment and shine onto the fiber without weighing hair down. Or the Olaplex No.7: Bonding Oil (₱ 2,300) for minimizing flyaways, protecting strands from heat styling, and increasing hair shine. Check out more of the hair oils here.
