Hi, Jean! The right way to wash your hair.

Jean Jabber is the High School health instructor. She teaches about nutrition, exercise and hygiene (Hi, Jean! get it?). Step into Jean's classroomif you dareand see what's going on today!


Jean enters the classroom with her clipboard in hand, wearing a big, frizzy red wig.



Hi, girls!


Ninth-grade class

Hi, Jean.



Anyone want to guess why I'm wearing this wig?



You're in the witness protection program.



You're trying out for the circus.



You're having a bad hair day.



Bingo! You win Anita. And for your prize you get to wear this lovely wig to the mall.



That's okay, Jean. It looks better on you.



Okay. Pop quizwhat's the best thing to make your hair beautiful? 

  • Whipped cream
  • Dog shampoo
  • Vinegar


Time's up! The answer is NONE of the above.


If you want your hair to look good, you gotta keep your scalp clean and healthy with these girls hair tips. That means shampooing with gentle shampoo like Pantene, using a good conditioner, and easy on the blow-drying for Pete's sake!


Girls Hair Tips: When to wash

I know you're all wondering, How often am I supposed to wash my hair? Every day? Once a month? In the spring?


Now Miss Margaret, you have to wash your straight hair every blessed day. Anita, if you were to wash your curly hair every day, you'd look like my French poodle! Every other day is enough for curly hair.


I'll bet you all think you know HOW to wash your hair. Put a ton of shampoo on, lather it up into a big foamy mess. Wrong! If your head looks like a bubble bath, that just means you used too much shampoowaste not, want not!


Girls Hair Tips: The 1-2-3 on washing your hair

Get a good, gentle shampoolook for ones with nutrients, botanicals, and a sunscreen for starters. Follow girls hair tips below for healthier hair. 

  1. Really wet your scalp and hair with warm or cool waterhot water will dry it out like toothpicks.
  2. Put just a little shampoo in your palmabout the size of a quarter, not the whole ding dang bottle!
  3. Rub your hands together and work the shampoo into your scalp with your fingersthe goal here is to clean your scalpthe suds will get all over your hair anyway.


You know how a lot of directions say "rinse and repeat"? Fugget-about-it! Only do that if you've been sweating in the fields for a week, or if you have an oily scalp. Now since a lot of you girls are going through puberty, you might have an oil problem, so you might need a second dose of shampoo. In any case, rinse ALL the shampoo out of your hair and scalp with cool or warm water.


Girls Hair Tips: Conditioning

Put a little conditioner in one hand, rub your palms together, and put it on your hair from about the middle point down to ends. Don't massage conditioner into your scalp unless it's really dry. If you have an oil problem, keep conditioner away from your scalp. It's best to comb conditioner through your hair, and leave it on maybe 30 seconds.


Then, rinse, rinse, rinse! Get it all out of your scalp and hair.


Girls Hair Tips: Don't ruin your hair!

All the crazy stuff you kids doLiz you change your hair color more often than I change my underwear! It's a wonder you have a strand left on your head. So once you shampoo and condition, take girls hair tips and don't wreck your hair!


Here are some girls hair tipsrepeat after me. You girls at home on your fancy computersread out loud. If people walk by and think you're nutstell them to go watch paint dry!  

  • Always set your hair dryer on "cool."
  • Don't blow dry your hair within an inch of its lifeleave it a little wet and let it dry on its own.
  • Use a conditioner with UV protectors to limit damage from the sun.
  • Don't ever brush your hair when it's wet or damp use a wide-toothed comb.


So that's it for my girls hair tips. So now don't go running around with nasty greasy hair. Take care of it.


And for the love of Mike, sit up straight! (That goes for you girls at home on your computers, too!)

Since I'm of asian descent, I have straight hair, but sometimes it gets too greasy, so I have to wash more frequently. People also say my hair is beautiful, but I curl it often because i like curls better. Mom's opinion: You're frying your hair! Stop it! I should love my hair I have inherited. Girls, love yourselve's for who you are and learn to love what you got.
